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

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This hack can only be used by Super Administrators, Administrators and Super Moderators.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.8.x version of this hack, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

Do you have a spam problem and have resorted to manual user registration? If so, have you noticed that it is so tedious and wish you could spread the love by getting other people to do this for you, but not give them AdminCP access? If the answer is yes to both questions, then this hack is for you.

This is a hack gives your Super Moderators (and Administrators) 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 users with your Super Moderators, leaving you the administrator more time to do other things.

A notification in your welcome block in the navbar is 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).

All users being moderated in the ModCP are now set to Ignore by default, so undesirable users are not accepted by accident.

Also included in this hack, if enabled and a ban usergroup is selected in the AdminCP Options, is the ability to ban users and emailing them to let them know, instead of just deleting them (this new feature has NOT been included by Jelsoft in the standard vBulletin AdminCP moderate user functionality), as it has also been requested before. So, if the ban feature is enabled, then Administrators clicking the notification link to moderate new registrations will be taken to the ModCP version (this hack) instead.

There is also an AdminCP Option to enable logging of user moderation to the Moderator's log.

What Do You Get?

With all features enabled in this hack, when there is a notification on the navbar that there are new user(s) to moderate, Super Moderators and Administrators can do the following for each individual moderated user:
  • Accept User (they are now a member)
  • Delete User (delete them from database)
  • Ban User (user is banned, username can not be reused)
  • Ignore User (leave them as a user yet to be moderated)
Or for all new moderated users, they can do the following:
  • Accept All
  • Delete All
  • Ban All
  • Ignore All

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x - check here.

The v3.8.x version of 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.



Hack Support/Feature Requests

IMPORTANT: This hack is no longer supported.



Branding

There is a small unobtrusive block of copyright branding text at the bottom of each page generated by this hack, which is there to promote my work and allow you to use this hack for free.

You are NOT allowed to remove my copyright branding from this hack.

Install/Uninstall Instructions

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 the correct vBulletin Options in the AdminCP, and then it will work from then on.

The InstallInstructions.txt instructions file is included in attached .zip file.

Hi all,

It is with regret that after over 4 years (and thousands of hours) spent providing free support for my free hacks released here, as of today I will no longer be able to provide support for free.

This is due to being unemployed for a while, being strapped for cash and unable to rely on the virtually non-existant donations from here to help to pay the bills or put food on the table for my family. I am now providing all support for my free hacks released here over at Wolfshead Solutions via an annual support subscription (for a small fee).

It does not mean I will be no longer release free hacks, I will, but I will just no longer be supporting them for free.

My free hacks have and always will remain free to download and use. And so will updates/bug fixes.

I will be releasing more free hacks, but if you require any support at all for those free hacks, you will need to purchase an annual support subscription over at Wolfshead Solutions to receive support.

I am really sorry I have to do this, but revenue generated by my programming gigs are now my only source of income, and I can no longer afford the luxury of providing free support here, when that time can be spent creating new commerial products, doing paid work requests or providing paid support to pay the bills.

Thank you for the understanding.

Regards,

Mosh.

Is there an easy way to add to AdminCP as well as ModCP.

We are a small board and tough to get Mods to change.

I have released an update for this issue at Wolfshead Solutions.

If there are no complaints from my members, then I will release it here next week.

You will have to purchase a vBulletin.org Hack Support Subscription to be able to download it and receive support, as I now only release updates and new hacks earlier for my subscribed members. Updates and new hacks get released here about a week later, but with no support here at all.

I can confirm this. It has caused me many hours of stress in troubleshooting.

-- Fixed: "Fatal error: Call to a member function query_first() on a non-object" error on vBCMS

vBulletin's update to version 4.0.1 caused an issue on the CMS, this update fixes it.

This update was released at Wolfshead Solutions on Wednesday 13th January 2010 and there has been no negative feedback.

I just updated vBulletin to 4.x and reinstalled the updated version of this mod… then realised I still have the same issue as I had before, for those in the same boat I will post again here:

I have another mod called "Moderate New Registrations Based On IP Geographical Origin" which whitelists and lets through all registrations from my local country (Australia in my case) but requires moderation for all new registrations outside the defined whitelist.

Problem is that this mod only works if you turn on moderation for ALL users… What I wanted to do was make the option appear in the ModCP WITHOUT turning on the "Moderate New Members" option. I do love the ban option in this mod since if I simply delete spammers they get to reuse the same email address, banning stops that.

To fix this problem I found that editing the xml install file and the user_moderation.php file removing the references to $vbulletin->options['moderatenewmembers'] means this little hack doesn't check to see if the moderate new members flag is on, but still checks everything else and still only allows supermods access. (which is exactly what I want).

While I understand this isn't supported by the Mosh, it's only a minor mod and is easy enough to reverse if ever needed. I have run it for a long time on 3.x and now on 4.x it seems to be working just as well. Once again, many thanks.

It can be done, as the hack (and optional navbar notification) use those specific permissions to check, and they check if a user is in an administrator usergroup or a super moderator group, they can not be used to check if the user is in a moderator group. I would have to rewrite all the permissions, but I am not interested in updating the hack to do it, it works exactly the way I want it to, and apart from the bug I accidentally introduced into v3.8.001 of this hack (I fixed it in v3.8.002), this hack has been working bug free since about December 2006 (I released it here at the end of August 2007).

If I ever need to add permissions for additional usergroups/users for any of my sites (which I have not for over four years), then I will update this hack at that time, but until then I will not be added anything additional on the permissions end of things, sorry.

But if you wanted to do it yourself, you would have to alter the permission in user_moderation.php file, and also all the plugins associated with this hack.
