Good catch oatsy. Problem solved. Thanks a lot.

Coder may want to take note and fix the path in the file for the benefit of others.

I edited the xml file for this mod to remove it, reinstalled the mod, and it's sorted.

So, open the xml file in a text editor, go to line 62 and change it from ...

<img src="/images/site_icons/ignore.png" alt="{vb:rawphrase btu_unban}">


<img src="images/site_icons/ignore.png" alt="{vb:rawphrase btu_unban}">

Save, and reinstall.

Now one this ....
If the forums is not installed at root the image ignore.png ll not load coz it tries to load image
so if you have forums like in forum directory it should load from here
but it stall loads from old path http://yourdomain/images/site_icons/ignore.png....

i guess this needs to be fixed.

Two things:

1) All staff levels need to be able to ban/unban (as has been stated)

2) There needs to be an indicator on the banned persons post(s) in the thread letting us know that he is banned from it.

I've fixed the error and attached the updated .xml product file.
Please edit/remove this post if this is against the rules.

All credit to OP. I've just updated it to be compatible with recent version of vblulletin. ( Simple fix )
