This code allows you to force one user to ignore another user's posts. This is useful in situations such as lover's spats or fueds where the involved parties are worthwhile contributors - if only they'd keep away from each other.

The plug in requires you create a custom user profile field. Name it "Forced Ignore" and set it as follows:
Type: Single Line Text Box
Field Required: No
Field Editable by User: No
Private Field: No
Field searchable on Members List: No
Show on Member List: No
Page that displays this option: Edit Profile

Once that is done note the field number created by vbulletin - you need to plug it into the php code below in the three spots you see 'fieldX' For instance, if vbulletin makes your new field number 10 you would plug in 'field10'. This php code needs to go into a plug in attached to global_start

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

Afterwards you can edit the control from the user profile control of the admincp (I haven't checked the modcp). Enter the user id number of the users you wish to force a user to ignore in there seperated by spaces. DO NOT ENTER ANYTHING BUT NUMBERS or you will create a database error for the affected user.

This will keep the user from seeing the posts of that user. Because of the way vbulletin processes Tachy the user will still be displayed in the latest thread listing of each forum. (Tachy is designed to be a global ignore, not a local one).

I would also love it if we could make it an end user option, so for two members fighting, if they wanted to force their adversary/temporary enemy etc to not be able to see their posts, etc, it would allow people to work out their squabbles with less mod interference...

I have issues where a user puts the one person on ignore, but is mad because the ignored person can still see all their threads.. so we need a way for people tohide their info from others selectively..

This worked for me! Thanks for posting.
I know just enough to be dangerous.

Does it work in 4.x versions?

It definitely works in the 3.8.7 version. I had to add somebody to a user's forced ignore as my Admin account saw the posts regardless. I had been testing wrong before as Admins are not blocked and forced to ignore the user.

Remember to update all three of the "Fieldx" in the code or it won't work. If this works in 4.x I'm finally set to upgrade as I'll have the option to force users to ignore each other.

I've tried this in 4.1.5 and it crashed teh forum, or at least stopped it from loading.

Has anyone had any luck getting it to work or found somthing that supercedes it?

I would find this mod very usefull on my forum.

Works like a charm on 3.8.7 expect the thread numbering.
