Why do you always have to interpret things in a perverted way... I was referring to other warning system. Not vB's.

I cant find where warning type administration is or warning administration
Warning System in the vBulletin AdminCP Menu.

How is this different from the builtin infractions system ??
Much more features. And I mean - much.


P.S. Yay! One-star voter, I see you've already been here. Having fun, aye?

Normal Behavior or Not?

After issuing a warning to a user, the part of the thread display screen for the 'warned post', where the users profile information is, widens. Is this normal behavior (see image)?

Impossible. Tested with 3.5.4 and 3.6.3, everything works fine. There isn't a way that these lines could appear (nothing even close to that was even coded). I recommend you check your computer for viruses or something... Also, make sure that the Page Zoom of your browser is 100%. From your screenshots, it appears to be about 70%...

When a private message is sent for the warning, '2' messages show in the inbox for the warned user and only one warning message is in the inbox.

<hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr><hr> <hr>
Please do not talk about something different other than the posted topic. Thank you.

No <hr> tags have even been coded into the system. There must be something wrong with your vBulletin installation.

Anthony, I just did a clean install of vB, latest version, installed your MOD, and still getting the lines. Also, when a warning is issued and the PM sent, two messages show as being in the users inbox, but there is just the one message. After reading the message, it shows that there is still one unread message in the inbox.

The fact remains that no <hr>'s have ever been coded into the package. Furthermore, I don't think I have ever used <hr> tag in any of my modifications. Make a search through the files contained in the ZIP and you'll find that it's true. If a fresh installation of vBulletin gives you that problem, then either the installation is not fresh or the server at which you are installing vBulletin is malfunctioning.

Any idea why when issuing a warning and the subsequent email why two messages show as being in the users inbox, but there is just the one message; and then after reading the message, it shows that there is still one unread message in the inbox.

That may be from a previous bad installation. Do a query:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Of course, replace YOURUSERID with the actual userid.
