  • How to ban users based on "Search for Users"?


    I use 3.8.1 patch 1.

    I have figured out that most spammers in my forum select the first Interests option in the User Profile Fields, based on this the first option is "I am just a spammer", the rest of the options are valid for the forum. I can now click Users at the CP, then Search for users, then go to Interests and check the box for "I am just a spammer" and click Find.

    So, my question is: How do I ban all this users without ban one by one?

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Thank you

    You would have to do it one at a time unfortunately.

      How do I set up a rule that sends posts for moderation if it contains a specific word? In example name of a drug or adult site related words. Or maybe delete the post and ban the user automatically?

        Why haven't you just sorted your Human Verification and registrations settings to stop the spammers? That way you only have manual spammers and you have a setting where they can't post a URL until they've made a min of 15 posts? I can't really understand what your saying? Perhaps i'm being stupid or read your question wrong.

        Goodluck anyway

          Posters have to be registered and activate the membership prior posting. I have turned on the "Image Verification". We moderate all new postings. I have also written at the top of the forum that we moderate all new postings, written in red bold text. We still get a lot of spam every day. Signatures turned off, for everybody.

          Last week I got 156 new members and last week I banned 22 members for spamming.
