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 3.8.x version of this hack, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

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).

All users being moderated in the ModCP 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 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x - check here.

The v3.8.x version of 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.

Hack Support/Feature Requests

IMPORTANT: This hack is no longer supported.


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.


Shown in this order:
  • Notification in navbar
  • AdminCP Options
  • ModCP sidebar (with Moderate Registrations showing)
  • Moderate New User Registrations (with ban feature disabled)
  • Moderate New User Registrations (with ban feature enabled)
  • Showing what the banned user would look like in my Banned Members Log hack
  • Moderator Log

Is there any way to add an extra column of information to the table?

I have a custom field called "Real Name" which is a half decent indicator of spammers since most will provide a full "First Last" sort of name vs normal users who are lucky to put in much of anything.

In any case, I would like to extract and display field6 from the userfield table and display it on the user_moderation page. Is this easy?? Possible?
