One-touch Spam Ban and Cleanup




The main purpose of this mod is to clean up after a spammer. With a minimum of fuss it will:
  • Delete all threads started by the spammer
  • Delete all posts made by the spammer
  • Delete all PMs sent to other members by the spammer
  • Delete all calendar events made by the spammer
  • Ban or delete the spammer as you like
  • Ignore permissions - posts can be deleted in areas that a moderator may not have access to.
The option to activate this tool appears in the drop-down menu in the postbit, as well as on the profile page. From here it is a "one-touch" operation, with the small exception that you must press a confirmation button before the cleanup is made.




See the screenshot for the various options, but some of the more interesting ones are:
  • You can specify individual users (in addition to groups) who can use this tool. This means certain trusted, non-moderator users could have the ability to clean up spam and ban spammers.
  • You can specify users or groups who are protected - they cannot be deleted by this tool.
  • By default, users who have registered more than 30 days ago are also protected from this tool (spammers tend to be caught and removed fairly soon after registration)
  • You can turn the various deletion targets (threads, posts, events, PMs) on or off
  • Select between hard delete or soft delete
This mod is similar to some older mods, but improved in a number of ways:
  • You also have the choice to alter the standard ban and delete reasons before you press confirm.
  • Deletes more types of spam (PMs, events)
  • Simple, quick, effective
  • Single file import (.xml) no file edits, no template edits, no .php files to upload
  • Should work on all versions of 3.6.x and future versions
Installation

Download and import the .xml file via AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product. Remember to click overwrite if upgrading

Configuration

Once installed, check in your AdminCP under "VBulletin settings" and look for the configuration group called "One-touch Spam Ban & Cleanup Options". The default options should be fine for most people.

How to use

If you have rights to use this tool (i.e. are an admin or moderator, or have configured it for the relevant user or group ID) you should see the option appear on the member profile page, or in a drop-down on the postbit (see attached screenshots for an example). The idea is that as soon as you see a spammer select the "One-touch Ban & Clean" option to remove all trace of the spammer.

See post #30, though this should be fixed with 1.1.

Theoretically this could work, if you disabled the setting to protect users more than a certain number of days old (default 30). However, I did not design this tool with your purpose in mind...

The further you go down a thread (for every post made) another instance of One-touch Ban & Clean is added to the list.
Please read through the previous posts on this thread - this issue has been addressed several times.

I don't understand what you mean. Can you please elaborate?

I'm sure that this isn't the way it is suppose to be.

Followup: I was reading everything again, and checked the users groups, that was right 5,6,7 but I didn't have the users ID: entered, when I added my user id, it is working as expected.
This was a bug - I have addressed it and released version 1.1.

All users who are running 1.0 should immediately update to 1.1.

So far there are only 3 changes made to 1.1:
  • Fixed bug where guests could ban/delete
  • Added extra logic to stop the ban option appearing multiple times (this only happened on some systems)
  • Specified the minimum mysql version as 4.1

Correct - I've just fixed it. It was only the version number.

I'm getting:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected '{' in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/misc.php(96) : eval()'d code on line 300 and my smilie page.

Version 1.0 was working fine and I did have single ids assigned to clean up for me.

Should I just go back to it?

EDIT:

Thanks for fixing it. You rock!
