Usergroups Can't Send PMs by BOP5
Mod Version: 1.2, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 20
Released: 17 Aug 2011 Last Update: 18 Aug 2011 Downloads: 89
Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

This is a simple mod per a request. The request was for a mod to block certain usergroups from sending PMs, but they could still receive them.

Version History
1.0: Initial Release
1.1: Added options to disable for primary usergroups only and for specific users.
1.2 Added White-list Option- Can White-list Usergroups to never block those users.

This mod provides for the following:

Block primary or secondary usergroups from making new PMs.
Optionally block the same usergroups from replying to PMs.

Therefore it is possible with this mod to not allow sending PMs at all OR to only allow users to respond to PMs you (or someone) sends them via quick-reply.

The mod contains 2 plugins and 1 new phrase which is the error message shown when someone attempts to create a new PM who is not allowed to send one.

This has been tested on VB 4.1.5 and VB 3.8.7 and should work on at least all VB 3.7 through 4.2.x.

To choose usergroup and/or just some of users (User ID).

If still be possible to evolute MOD that blocked usergroups can send to staff PM's only?

And please give option to act only Primary group.

Will work on that. Userids and primary usergroups will be no problem Sending only to staff will be tricky- not going to happen today.

If you can it will be awesome.
If you can not, or have not time, it is OK...

Although it's a work-around, not a solution, if you have your forum set to send a "welcome PM" to every new member from your admin account you can set this mod to allow replies and new people will be able to reply to you but not send PMs to anyone else.

Uhhhhh...
I have rebellion on my forum.

One thing to add if possible, till then I have to stop MOD to work.

Is it possible to this MOD act like vanilla vBulletin permission setup?
I mean, if I disable default usergroup to send PM, and then they join to some Public (joinable) custom usergroups which can send PM, this YES permission must be stronger than NO permission.

By default on my forum new users can not send PM's, but after they join to some other group (additional group) which can send PM, is it possible that this "yes" permission is stronger then "no" permission?

Deafault usergroup: can not send PM
Additional usergrop: can send PM
--------------------------------------

Conclusion: User can send PM because YES is stronger then NO

Isn't it easier to follow default vBulletin permission rules (YES is stronger then NO)?

OK- you code the change. It's re-usable code.

Updated to version 1.2 - Added the Whitelist option.

Any usergroups placed in the whitelist will override any usergroups on the block list of usergroups. The whitelist works on primary or secondary usergroups.

The usergroup whitelist will NOT override specific userids that are blocked.

Whitelisted users will follow whatever standard PM rules you have set in vBulletin.
