PM Block by BOP5 (Private Message Block Lists per User)
Mod Version: 1.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 33
Released: 21 Jun 2011 Last Update: 28 Jun 2011 Downloads: 121
Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

New Version - 1.0 - No manual file edits required!

This mod allows your users to setup their own personal private message block lists. No one on their lists will be allowed to PM them. (You can optionally specify immune usergroups such as admins and mods that can't be blocked.)

You can also optionally enable 2-way blocking so if one user adds someone to their block list they can not PM that user either. (Recommended)

This mod requires you to create 1 multi-line user profile field via your Admin CP. Detailed instructions for doing so are included in the installation instructions in the .zip.

LIMITATIONS OF THIS MOD:
  • If a user changes usernames the block list will need to be updated with the new username.

Notes:
  • When adding a username to the block list capitalization of the letters do not count but all other punctuation such as spaces DO count.

This mod adds 2 phrases in Error Messages:
  • pm_blocked - This is the error shown when a user has been put on the recipients block list.
  • pm_denied - This is the error shown when 2-way blocking is enabled and a user tries to PM a recipient on their own block list.

Current Version: 1.0 - No file edits required.
0.9 - Stable Beta / Initial Release

This has been tested on 3.8.7, 4.0.8, and 4.1.2 and is expected to work on all 3.7/8, 4.0/1 versions.

You must setup the profile field yourself via the User Profile Fields in the Admin CP. The step by step instructions are included in the instructions in the .txt file.

I've never heard of vBulletin not showing a custom profile field if it was created in the Admin CP. Are you sure you are looking on the correct page for it? Some fields show up under the profile and some on the settings page depending the location you choose.

Question

Is it possible to have it so that when someone tries to PM you, but they are blocked, the person gets a notification that "Member X tried to PM you but was blocked"?

IMO that would be silly, may as well just let them pm you then.

Not at all. On our forum we have trouble makers. I mean real trouble makers who do illegal activities like post children's pictures, post members name/addresses, etc. Knowing what these trouble makers are "trying" to do is actually important information for law enforcement. Like they say, information is power.

Ok, but what you asked would not show what they tried to send.

But you DON'T need to know what any message would say, just that there is a record that they tried to contact you (or keep trying to contact you). The message isn't important at that point

If it is a know member pming people then ban them. You would meet the info the person tried to send for law enforcement.

Cool

Yes we do ban them, but we both know there are ways around IP banning, and it is more than just one person, it is a group of trouble makers.

I installed this on 4.2 and followed the instruction to the letter. No problems installing or creating custom field. However, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to block someone.
