Warning System, Automatic Ban, Make Posts Invisible, Edit Signature/ Avatar/ Picture - Version 1.1

Okay, this is my private forum's custom warning/ suspension/ banning system and postbit moderator system. This is a fairly involved hack, so it is crucial that you follow the instructions closely. It would benefit experienced hackers the most. The following instructions are for an unhacked board. If you have hacked your board, or use different moderator usergroups, just make the appropriate changes.


With this hack, your staff and you will be able to:

1) Add/ Substract/ Reset Warning Points for a Member from a Popup Window in Postbit.

2) When the Member has Warning Points that reach a set level (up to you), the Member will be Automatically Banned.

3) Easily View a Member's Warning Points in the Postbit.

4) Have the ability to easily Edit a Member's Avatar/ Profile Pic/ Sig/ Reputation comments from a Popup Window in Postbit.

5) Suspend temporarily or Ban permanently a Member from a Popup Window in Postbit.

6) Have 2 categories of Banned Members -

..... a) Normal Banned members where the posts all remain, and

..... b) Troll Banned members, where all the posts in this usergroup

.......... i) Automatically becomes Invisible from all other members! You no longer have to manually search and delete their posts. They virtually disappear from your forums when they get put in this usergroup. Also, Troll Banned members get

.......... ii) Fake 404 errors and can no longer access your site.



Please be aware that this hack is designed for my private forums. If you want additional features, or customization, you have permission to do this yourself. Please do not expect me to customize this hack for your site.

FWIW, I've had this system running for 2 years now (obviously with different code). Time for me to share...

The installation instructions are in the HTML file in the ZIP file below. The warn.php is also in the ZIP file.


Screenshots:

1. Options available with the dropdown menu for staff.

2. Popup window from postbit to warn members.

3. Popup window from postbit to suspend or ban members.

4. Popup window from postbit to edit signature.

5. Popup window from postbit to edit avatar.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...chmentid=15469


NOTE: You can also edit profile pictures, reputation comments, etc. but I can't be bothered making screenshots of all the features.

Enjoy!

With Erwin's Permision I've made an HTL Version of this hack.

Think you have a long enough title?

And you should attach it to a .txt, remember? Bad Erwin.

Looks like a nice hack, I'll give it a shot later.

How to use this hack:

You control your members via the vB3 dropdown menu by clicking on a member's Username.

You then basically choose what to do, and a Popup Window will come up. Just choose what you want to do. Easy.

When you Troll Ban a member, ALL of the member's threads and posts disappear. They disappear from Forumdisplay, Showthread, even in Newreply (where the posts are quoted). This is a quick way of removing offensive posts by trolls.

As a bonus, Troll Banned members get fake 404 errors when they try to access your site.

Anyway, install it, and let me know what you think.

A screenshot of the Postbit Moderator Dropdown Menu Controls, Popup Warning Window, Popup Banning Window, Popup Edit Avatar Window... I won't post screenshots of the rest of the Popup Windows, it's fairly common sense.

Great hack, I need something like this! I'll install when vB goes Gold.

Erwin, all the extra options you have in that screenshot like "Edit xx's Avatar" etc, is that another hack??

Excellent! Thanks Erwin

My mods have been asking about the warning system from VB2. This one will blow them away. I'll install it the instant I upgrade to RC1!

Cheers

I'm too lazy to make a text file. Releasing my hacks have taken me a few hours already, documenting all my changes. LOL!

Edit the postbit_legacy template instead of the postbit one.

Great hack, but there's a few things I noticed:

1. In my default RC1 installation, I do not have the line


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So, instead I added it after:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

2. You have references to "*****", I believe this should be "modcp".

3. "banning.php" does not exist in admincp, it does in modcp though. Might want to mention that.

4. When a call is made to warn.php, all I get is a blank screen. I'm working on tracking that down as we speak.
