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 3.7.x version of this hack, with the addition of being able to ban members too (this new feature has NOT been included by Jelsoft in the standard vBulletin AdminCP moderate user functionality).

This hack was created because I liked the idea of the request in this thread, and seems to have been requested quite a few times over the years.

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).

As this has been asked for a few times over the last couple of versions of this hack, all users being moderated by Super Moderators 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 3.7.0 - 3.8.8.

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.

For the v4.0.x version of this hack - check here.



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.

Any idea of what might be the problem?

Mosh-or anyone else for that matter. I'd like the ability to give regular moderators this ability. How hard is that to do?

I looked through the php of the modcp.php file that was in the upload folder, and i saw "permissions" but what can I add to that to allow a certain usergroup to be able to use this feature?

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 introduced into the last version of this hack (v3.8.001 fixed 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, 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.

But if you wanted to do it yourself, you would have to alter the permission in user_moderation.php file, and also all 3 plugins associated with this hack.

Well as I tried and don't know how to code as well as you, I cannot do it by myself and i'm sure since you built it, changing a line or two of coding in 4 files wouldn't be terribly time consuming or difficult. Oh well, uninstalled and marked 1 star.

If we delete it they can simply re-register.

This feature request has now been added in v3.8.003

Would it be possible for this mod to allow the Super Moderator to change the Primary or Additional Usergroups of a User?

I would find that to be a very nice addition.

Thanks

Unfortunately not, as the link for Super Moderators to the users profile uses a link the the ModCP version of user.php which does not allow for the editing of users, only administrators have permission to edit users. Adding your request would actually involve creating a brand new hack to move the edit user admin functions out to the ModCP and sorting out Super Moderator permissions to include the ability to edit a uses profile.

Not at the moment, but I could probably add the feature if enough people are interested in having it added.
