Information
Sometimes there are users who keep ignoring warnings or keep trolling in a specific forum section, maybe it's not worth a forum ban so you want to give them a ban from that specific forum section only.

This plugin will make it possible to ban specific users from specific forum sections. By default, vBulletin only makes it possible for administrators to block a users access to specific forum sections through access masks.

The following settings are present in this plugin:
  • Select which specific usergroups can ban users in all forum sections.
  • Enable whether regular moderators who have powers in specific forum sections can ban people from these forum section.
  • Choose whether:
    • Ban only from forumdisplay. (can still see thread contents in forum section)
    • Ban from forum section and threads in the forum section.
    • Ban from threads in the forum section. (can still see forumdisplay)

So how do I ban someone from a forum section?
In a thread, simply click on the username in the postbit of the user you want to ban and click on the issue ban button.
Anyone who has permission to ban people from forum sections can not be banned by others from the forum section.

You can unban someone from a forum section the same way.



Installation
1. Upload files in UPLOAD folder to root of your forum.
2. Import the XML file in the IMPORT folder.
3. Go to AdminCP > Settings > Options > Forum Section Ban - Technidev > configure to your needs.

Upgrade
If you want to upgrade from a previous version then all you have to do is re-upload the files in the UPLOAD folder.

Version History
1.0: Initial release.
1.1: Fixed bug of table name not existing when you use a table prefix.

Hmm I guess in your case you have to uninstall it first, then install it again.

This is a great mod.

It would be great if the mod can have logs with the banned members, the section/sections where they have been banned from and the admin who banned them, date and time, etc.

Good idea, but the execution could be better.

Instead of entirely banning users from viewing forumdisplay or showthread, you should only hide the posting buttons in forumdisplay or showthread.

Sorry but banning them from viewing doesn't seem to makes much sense since they could just log out, you probably want to ban these users from posting instead. So could you update this product good Sir?

If they log out, then they can not post anyway. So Banning them from a specific section so they won't be able to post when they are logged is the whole idea of the mod and it makes perfect sense

^the point is why would you block someone from viewing the whole page when your intention is to prevent posting
why force users to log out, it's very unprofessional

there is no way I'm going to use this product as is

Not only that, the fact there's no logs as mentioned earlier, and no easy way to lift bans, makes this product very difficult for both users and administrators.

It's a good idea but it's nowhere near usable in its current state, it still needs a lot of polish.

Thee product is useful and I am using it, it just would be great to have logs for it. I doubt you have installed or tried the mod because you can easily unban the member who has been banned and you have the ability to ban the member from the whole section or from the threads only.
