Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. You can now check out the 3.8.x version of this hack, as it also works with v3.7.5 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can only be used with vBulletin v3.7.x.

This hack is not compatible with v3.6.x (due to fact that notifications in the welcome block were not introduced until v3.7.0), but fear not, you can use the unsupported v3.6.x version of this hack instead.



What Does This Hack Do?

It is a update of my v3.6.x hack available here, with new stuff added.

This is hack gives your Super Moderators the option in the ModCP to now manually approve new user registrations, that before now only Administrators could do from the AdminCP.

This means you can now spread the load of manually approving members with your Super Moderators, leaving you the administrator more time to do other things.

New to v3.7.x is a notification in your welcome block in the navbar being displayed (if the notification option is enabled in the AdminCP) when there are new user registrations to be moderated. This is displayed to both Administrators and Super Moderators. The notification will only generate 1 extra query per page load (only if the notification is enabled, and then the extra query is only for Administrators and Super Moderators, so if you want to save a query then disable the option).

This hack was created because I liked the idea of the request in this thread, and seems to have been requested quite a few times over the years.

There are no file or template changes at all and is fully phrased. You just need to upload 1 file, import 1 product and alter 2 (or 3) vBulletin Options in the AdminCP, and then it will work from then on.


Installation Instructions
  1. Unzip product-ms_20080202.zip
  2. Upload /upload/modcp/user_moderation.php to your <forum root>/modcp folder (overwrite existing uploaded file if upgrading).
  3. Import product-ms_20080202.xml into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager (set Allow Overwrite to Yes if upgrading).
  4. Under the User Registration Options section of vBulletin Options in the AdminCP:
    • Ensure Moderate New Members is set to Yes
    • Ensure Verify Email address in Registration is set to Yes
  5. Under the Moderate User Registrations (ModCP Option) section of vBulletin Options in the AdminCP:
    • Ensure Enable Notification ? is set to Yes if you want the notification to be displayed.

Uninstall Instructions
  1. Delete the user_moderation.php file from your /modcp folder.
  2. Uninstall the product in vB using the AdminCP Product Manager.

Good hack, but this would hurt me. Probably useful for certain forums.

No, none what so ever.

It is just an administrator function that is now available for super moderators to use, with this hack. You still have to check the potential members before approving their registrations.

Gave me the url to this Invite System hack and I will see what I can do, but I am not promising anything though.

Ok, I installed, but the supermoderators can't access...

The error message they get is
Sorry, you don't have permission to access the administrative controls on this page.

If you need to access this page, ask your lead administrator to enable your permissions for this page using the Administrator Permissions section of the control panel.
The problem is that I do NOT want my Supermoderators to have unlimited access to the Administer Users section (for one thing, when they do, they can change their own permissions to see areas only for our donors, can make themselves a member of the Admin group, etc.)

I'd like them to be able to review a new user and moderate them (accept their membership or not) but not change any other permissions for the member.

To clarify, the issue is the link on the notifications menu, since it takes the Supermod to the link in the admin cp that they don't have permission to see. If they go into the ModCP then it works for them.

Can/Should the notification link be changed so that it goes to the ModCP approval rather than the AdminCP panel?

It should not happen at all, because the permissions are specifically checked to see if the person using the link is either an admin or super mod.

If you are an admin, you get the link to the AdminCP, if you are a supermod then you will get the link to the ModCP.

The only possible way super mods will see the link to the AdminCP instead of the ModCP is if both Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) and Can Access Control Panel (is Administrator) are set to Yes in the Super Moderator usergroup (which they should not be, if they are both set, then they are counted as admins and not super mods).

Can Access Control Panel (is Administrator) should be set to No for super mods, and Yes for admins, and this is what it is by default.

If it is not the above, I have not got a clue, as the only way I could recreate your problem was by setting Can Access Control Panel (is Administrator) to Yes for super mods.
