So, the Ignore feature is extremely lacking in all of what should probably be essential functionality. Currently, by default, you can only ignore someone's: Forum Posts, Messages, Signatures, and Mentions. While that's great and all, it's an extremely simplistic view of an Ignore/Block function. All major platforms (Facebook, Twitter, etc) have a way to Block and/or Ignore a user account. This hides all of that user's comments and contents and/or blocks them from viewing your content and profile. This is a major oversight in functionality that's missing in the IPS software. Not to mention that the Ignore function misses almost all of the other IPS default applications (Pages, Blogs, Gallery, Downloads, Calendar, Statuses, etc). The entire Ignore function feels like it was just slapped on to solve a singular issue (Forums) and never touched again. What an Ignore / Block function should be able to do:

  • Ignore all or some of a user's content.
  • Block a user from contacting you (Blocking messages and mentions).
  • Blocking a user from your profile and content.

Most users prefer Ease of Use with this. If you're blocking someone, you (usually) have a good reason to. The current ignore feature on IPS is basically bare-bones and doesn't really do a great job at what it does. It can definitely be better, and hopefully this can start that.

Yeah, I'm fully in agreement too. Especially with topics.
We have had a number of instances where users have found other users so disagreeable that they have felt the need to completely block someone - rather than cause admins hassle. This is responsible of the user but at the present time they find that the ignore feature simply doesn't allow them to ignore the other person - which is what users are expecting will happen when they click to ignore the user's posts. They don't expect to see their topics coming up in the main forum view either.

I can't see how it would be a bad addition - and to be fair I am really surprised that there isn't a hook in the marketplace because in my view it's a feature that is severely lacking from the forum software - and IPB's competitors allow users to ignore fully.

This is something that has been asked for as well on my site.

I would happily pay for a module to do this.

When I used to run a VB site, there was as "SuperIgnore" patch you could add that hide users from absolutely everything but quotes, this is what's needed as the quotes may not be 100% possible.

I'd happily pay $30 for a working module that did this.

Hi. Do you mean to hide everything of ignored members being ignored by the Ipb ignore system, or to hide members being globally ignored from everyone? If the latter, please see my app here:

@Miss_B does your plugin equate to "Shadow banning"?

Can you please tell me what do you mean by  "Shadow banning"?

But yes, it does. The posts and topics of globally ignored members will be seen only by themself and staff members or other groups  with the appropriate permissions.

... and, I would like to add, this is awesome! It only took me 2 seconds to decided to purchase this. Worth every penny!

The current ignore feature already does two out of the three things you listed though and has done for a long time:

Ignore posts and mentions: This is all or some of a users content.
Ignore Messages and Mentions: This is "Block a user from contacting you (Blocking messages and mentions)

I agree that the system needs to be overhauled a least somewhat, or improved in someway. But I can't really put my finger on it.

Except it doesn't. Posts is only for forums. It does not block any other Community application, such as Blogs, Pages, Calendar, etc. Having the option to block/ignore whole and outright an entire account is crucial. If we aren't going to see this in 4.5, I'll be looking for a 3rd party solution.
