Not Supported  

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).

Given that the Author has not ticked the "Supported" box, it's better than nothing.

AdminCP - Plugin Manager - Add new Plugin.

Copy and paste the code in the first post of this thread, edit it to contain the field number of your new User Profile Field, paste that into the box in the adminCP, choose global_start as the hook.

Seriously, you would do well to read the vBulletin manual before installing anything. If you don't know how to make a plugin... its not the coders job to tell you the basics.

Also just discovered that this stopped working with 3.6.x.

Anyone have any ideas how we might get it to work? My mods and admins found this a very helpful tactic of next-to-last resort.

Yep, I just tried to install it in 3.6.1 and it doesn't appear to be working.

Big props to whomever might make it work for us in the 3.6.X version. I could really use it.

Thanks in advance!!

i've been using it for a while now... but can't figure out how to have the user number NOT show up in a line above the user's custom user title?




ok that doesn't make sense... so here's an example:

DirtyHarry
245
dumpster diver


245 is the user that is on this member's forced ignore list. now everyone in the forum can tell he's on forced ignore.

I have this set up on vB 3.6 and it doesn't seem to be working. When I enter a persons userid number into another's profile and hit save, it does not show up on the profile when I go back to edit the user. Any idea why it's not saving this information? Should this be able to work in vB 3.6?

PHP Code:
if ($vbulletin->userinfo['fieldX'])
{
if ($vbulletin->options['globalignore'])
{
$vbulletin->options['globalignore'] = $vbulletin->options['globalignore'] . " " . $vbulletin->userinfo['fieldX'];
}
else
{
$vbulletin->options['globalignore'] = $vbulletin->userinfo['fieldX'];
}
}


is that plain enuff?

this really should be made into a product and ported to 3.6 as it is a GREAT addon for seperating 2 members who by themselves are GREAT members.. yet together.. do nothing but bicker.
