One-touch Spam Ban and Cleanup




The main purpose of this mod is to clean up after a spammer. With a minimum of fuss it will:
  • Delete all threads started by the spammer
  • Delete all posts made by the spammer
  • Delete all PMs sent to other members by the spammer
  • Delete all calendar events made by the spammer
  • Ban or delete the spammer as you like
  • Ignore permissions - posts can be deleted in areas that a moderator may not have access to.
The option to activate this tool appears in the drop-down menu in the postbit, as well as on the profile page. From here it is a "one-touch" operation, with the small exception that you must press a confirmation button before the cleanup is made.




See the screenshot for the various options, but some of the more interesting ones are:
  • You can specify individual users (in addition to groups) who can use this tool. This means certain trusted, non-moderator users could have the ability to clean up spam and ban spammers.
  • You can specify users or groups who are protected - they cannot be deleted by this tool.
  • By default, users who have registered more than 30 days ago are also protected from this tool (spammers tend to be caught and removed fairly soon after registration)
  • You can turn the various deletion targets (threads, posts, events, PMs) on or off
  • Select between hard delete or soft delete
This mod is similar to some older mods, but improved in a number of ways:
  • You also have the choice to alter the standard ban and delete reasons before you press confirm.
  • Deletes more types of spam (PMs, events)
  • Simple, quick, effective
  • Single file import (.xml) no file edits, no template edits, no .php files to upload
  • Should work on all versions of 3.6.x and future versions
Installation

Download and import the .xml file via AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product. Remember to click overwrite if upgrading

Configuration

Once installed, check in your AdminCP under "VBulletin settings" and look for the configuration group called "One-touch Spam Ban & Cleanup Options". The default options should be fine for most people.

How to use

If you have rights to use this tool (i.e. are an admin or moderator, or have configured it for the relevant user or group ID) you should see the option appear on the member profile page, or in a drop-down on the postbit (see attached screenshots for an example). The idea is that as soon as you see a spammer select the "One-touch Ban & Clean" option to remove all trace of the spammer.

That has nothing to do with this plugin it is to do with this plugin, but as I see you are running vb3 you need to post it in the Spam O Matic version where you got it. But going by the error I would check the options for it as it looks like you have maybe done a misprint somewhere. Check the Easy Cleanup options of the mod the only place is really anywhere you can type anything like in Easy Cleanup: Banned UserGroup ID = 8

It's because both mods use a function (and declare a function) called clean_options_list. So, for one of the mods, you should rename the function, and all calls to it, to something else like clean_options_list2.

Hi, does anyone know if this should work with vB 3.8.* version? I have installed it, it's all setup fine, but doesn't show up the option to one-touch ban the users on the forum.

My forum has exploded with SPAM and I need to do a serious clean up. Is there another recommended MOD to easily identify and clean SPAM?

Help is much appreciated.

Thanks

If you have a custom style, check and see if it is working on the default style.

EDIT: It actually works on 3.8.8. I just realized I had hooks disabled. Duh!
