Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Overview:

This product is designed to allow your users to easily report various aspects of the profiles of other users. In the product settings, you can set which aspects of user profiles are shown on the report form (you can select from a list of pre-defined reasons and then add your own custom reasons), define a list of usernames which are not allowed to report profiles, prevent entire usergroups from reporting profiles and set the destination forum for the generated reports (the default is the same destination forum for reported posts). This product is compatible with my "Report Thread Prefix Management" product as well.

Upon installation a column is added to your "user" table that stores the threadid of the report thread so that all reporting of a particular user's profile will all go to the same thread. After activating and configuring the product, users will see a new link on the profile pages of users (and the report icon) which they can use to report that profile.



If a user has previously reported a certain user's profile, then the icon button changes to red and there is a tooltip advising the user they have already reported that user's profile, and in case that is missed, an alert is shown if the "Report "Profile" link is click advising the user and giving them the opportunity to cancel the operation.



By default, a user may report the profile of another user from their profile page, however there is a product setting which allows you to give your users the ability to report profile from thread postbits.



When filling out the form, if a user clicks "Submit Report" without checking any of the checkboxes, then they will be alerted that a reason must be given for reporting the profile. If the user checks the "Other" checkbox, but does not enter any text into the text box meant for giving the reason (or any other additional comments), then they are alerted that a reason must be given when selecting the "Other" option.



Then, when the form is submitted, a redirect message thanks the user for reporting the profile and advises them that the staff will deal with the issue as soon as possible. They are then returned to the profile they reported.

The details of the report are then posted to a thread in the forum you have set as the destination forum for the reports.



All users who can view the destination forum for the generated reports will also see an icon to the right of the "Report Profile" link for profiles that have previously been reported that links to the report thread, and if you are using my "Report Thread Prefix Management" product, the status of the report is included in the tooltip for that icon.



Note: If you choose a destination forum other than the default for reported posts, and you are using my "Report Thread Prefix Management" product, then you will need to use the "Forum Manager" to allow the prefix set defined by that product to be used there.

Updates:

Version 1.1
  • Additional CSS added for sites with dark styles.

A special word of thanks goes to Dave who noticed an SQL injection vulnerability and discretely called this to my attention, and offered advice on how to eliminate it.

Version 1.2
  • Data used in db queries is sanitized to prevent SQL injection.

Version 1.3
  • Removed unnecessary db query since needed data was already present.

Version 1.4
  • Added the option to exclude usergroups from having their profiles reported.

Version 1.4.5
  • Added the option to set a minimum post count before users may report profiles.

Version 1.4.6
  • Fixed minor error for online location reporting.

Version 1.5
  • Removed some CSS for colors so the StyleVars can take effect.

Version 1.6
  • Fixed bug where null thread was created when a report is posted to an existing thread.

Version 2.0
  • Fully phrased.
  • Added option to allow users to report profiles from within the postbits.
  • Link on profile done via custom template hook rather than javascript.
  • Borders on form styled with form border stylevar.
  • Settings check more efficient.

Note: Unlike in previous versions, where you selected the pre-defined reasons your users can choose from on the report form (and could add additional reasons), in version 2.0 you simply edit the product's phrase which contains a comma-delimited list of reasons. This allows you to completely customize as well as translate your reasons list.

Version 2.1:
  • Phrased all text in generated report.
  • Fixed issue where checked reasons weren't shown in the report.
  • Fixed issue with postbit icon not displaying.

Version 2.2:
  • Phrased page title.
  • Added setting choice of icon location.

Note: A special thanks goes to Stratis for reporting these issues.

* And If it had an option to have x post(global) to be able to report.
* If its easy to get code to show in postbit, under avatar or else in that section?

Yes, I have neglected to use phrasing in virtually all of my products, and I plan to fix that soon.

I'm not sure what you mean...vBulletin already has a post reporting system.

What do you want to show in the postbit?

I think he means 'Report Profile' in the postbit section.
Example:

I think he means have an additional option in the adminCP, for admins to specify a single thread ID for where all profile reports will go into.
Edit: He meant creating a X post count requirement option to be able to report a profile.

My suggestion:
- Only certain usergroups/users picked will have their profile reports go into X thread ID.
Example: [ThreadID|UsergroupIDs; ThreadID|UsergroupIDs etc...] I.E: [4|2; 8|6,4,3;]
AND [ThreadID|UserIDs; ThreadID|UserIDs etc...] I.E: [12|56; 13|62,14,23;]

- - Should a report be created in other places too? [Yes or No]
Note: If No selected, other report thread/posts will not be created. The reports from those usergroups/users will only be created inside the thread ID the admin chose above.

Yes for the postbit section as akz645 explained better.
How many user go to others profiles?... except user profile image all options we can see them
in the postbit section. All user read threads - posts, less go to profile. That's why I asked if can include this in two places

For this "option to have x post(global) to be able to report"
I mean that if a user has X posts than only be able to make a report.
Hope I give better explanation, sorry for my bad English

Thanks both of you

Personally, I prefer having a separate thread for each profile that has been reported...this way it can be marked as resolved. This is neat and simple.

I will consider adding a "Report Profile" icon in the "postlinking" element, down where the IP and "Report Post" icons are.

Ah, as I see I did not explain well. Users with 0 post or 1-2 post they will be able to report a profile. Is there a way for users not to be able to report if they don't have (lets say 5 post)


Thanks

Yeah I like that too, but not for all users/ usergroups. This is an additional (optional) option, it in no way affects the current system if the admin doesn't deem it necessary.

Some very sensitive users/usergroups I don't want to ban them from reporting altogether.
I don't mind banning trolls/trouble making users from reporting (clear/intentional abuse), but some are just overly sensitive.
There is no current way to deal with those users.
I still want them to be able to report, but avoid having them crowding up the report forum- hence have all their reports be placed into a single thread (low priority- less likely to be taken seriously).
It sends a bad message if I just straight up ban them from reporting. As users shouldn't be afraid to use the report function.

Small forums get very few reports monthly. Larger forums can get several reports daily/weekly.
Hence my suggestion would help out larger forums/forums where the report function is used a lot to get a moderators attention.

Thanks Mark, that's it
Waiting for phrases when ever you find some spare time

Phrases are very helpful to non English forums.
