Thread Blocker by BOP5 - Block usergroup access to specific threads
Mod Version: 1.3.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 40
Released: 26 Aug 2011 Last Update: 17 Dec 2012 Downloads: 140
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Version 1.3: Added option to block threads by forumid & bug fix
1.2 - Added option to block threads by thread prefix
1.1 - Added option to block by userid
1.0: Initial Release

I know the best way to control access to threads is via built in permissions and promotions systems however some times for special circmstances there are just certain threads you want to block from certain people- maybe from guests for example. What this mod does is make it easy to block some specific threadids from usergroups you specify. Simple and effective. The users without permission will see an error message saying they don't have access to that particular thread.

1 Plugin and 1 Global Phrase: bop5tb_noaccess - This is the error message others will see when attempting to view a thread.

Working on vBulletin 3.8.7- 4.1.5 and should work on all VB 3.6.x and up including all 4.x versions.

Great mod as always, but i'd like to have seen it where you can block an actual user instead of a usergroup
Could that be done?

This looks like a great idea.

Would it be possible to amend this to block usergroups from threads from a specific thread prefix?

ie, if I have a 'Politics' thread prefix and some users don't play well with others I can have them excluded from all threads with that prefix?

Yes I could probably add something like that in next update. Just very busy at the moment.

Just a gentle little reminder bump incase you have any spare time, if this would be useful for anyone else or if someone has come up with something similar for themselves..

Not trying to rush you, BOP - If you have real life stuff to keep you busy I respect that.

It would also be great if there was a way users could self exclude from Not Safe For Work threads, though I don't have an issue excluding them manually on request if that's not possible.

Gentile reminders are often effective.

Updated to version 1.2- Allows you to specify thread prefix ids to block threads.

I have one forum thread block but it appears all threads are blocked in all forums.
I may actually like that option Please add this option to the mod. (block all threads in all forums)

Note: The demo above Unblocked Thread in same forum is also blocked.
So, It may not be just me bug?
