vB Version: 4.2.0 Rating: (3 votes - 4.67 average) Installs: 43
Released: 04 Jul 2012 Last Update: Never Downloads: 164
Not Supported  

THIS ADD-ON IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND IS NOT SUPPORTED

This is an add-on that was designed with vBulletin 4.2.0. It may not work on earlier versions of vBulletin, but it should with any vB 4.x versions.

Demotes users based on an inactivity time you set.

This was created because it is impossible to automatically demote users using the vBulletin promotion system without editing the main vBulletin code. This issue has been reported here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-12929


Features:
  • Change primary usergroup
  • Add/Remove/Replace additional usergroups
  • Changes the display usergroup if needed
  • Exclude usergroups from inactivity demotion
  • Uses vBulletin scheduled tasks



* INSTALLATION *
-----------------------
1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)

2) Import the product XML file (product-userdemote.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.

3) Go to ACP->Settings->Options->Inactive User Demotions Settings. Turn on the system and set the options as needed.

what happens when the user is no longer inactive? Like if they come back to the forum, are they automatically put back where they were before they got demoted? Or are they demoted forever with your mod?

Sorry, no. That isn't the object of this mod. Inactivity is inactivity no matter how many posts a user has.

This is a demotion system. So, you would need to use the built in vB promotion system to put them back where they were.

This is a good mod but its missing one important element unless I have missed it.

You don't have a demote from usergroup. It wuld be handy to be able to select which usergroup is being demoted in the case of free users etc that stop posting.

It looks like your mod might demoted paid users as well which would be a problem.

There are other mods that can do this (and allow you to exclude usergroups from being checked).

It does demote inactive users. That's the whole point of the mod. Personally I use it to move 'Users Awaiting Email Confirmation' to a limited access usergroup if they don't confirm their email address within 15 days of registration. And it has worked perfectly since I wrote the mod.

What version of vB are you running?

Did you select the proper demotion type (primary or additional)?

Did you let it run for at least 1 hour? Demotions are done by scheduled task and if you don't have enough visits to your site, it could take longer.

I have a very active site, so it shouldn't be that.

Are you sure you have users that are inactive for the number of days set?

Did you upload the files that are included with the mod to your server?

Have you tried running the task manually to see if any errors come up?

Beyond that, I'd have to have access to your ACP and FTP to check what's going on. If you want me to look at it, send the the info needed by PM.
