  • Banning temprorary

    Hi all,
    i want to ban a member from my forum. SO that she won't be able to EVEN see the forum at all.

    basically not only from posting or replying, BUT also from even visiting the forum.

    Create a 'Banned' user group with all permissions set to 'No', then put her in it.

            That was an easy fix, but alternativly you can also go in the Admin CP->vB Options-> Banning section and there you can ban users by IP address(use the IP address search under the users catagory) or by e-mail.

              IP banning often backfires because most IP address are dynamic - not static. Therefore you might inadvertantly ban someone else and not ban the person you intended. As for email banning, this only works on new registrations.

                  What if the user is smart enough to clear his browser cookies? Perhaps a ban by all 3 methods (usergroup, IP, email) would work best.

                    There is no foolproof way to keep someone out. They could always just use an anonymous proxy to access the forums.

                      Yep I know. Just pointing out that banning by usergroup should be coupled with IP/email for better results

                      BTW, this sounds like a stupied question, but what's the standard way in the admin CP to ban a user? ie: Do I have a create a new usergroup called "banned", and put that user in the usergroup?

                        That's the way I do it. You can also use the Mod CP's ban option which will automatically create a 'Banned by Moderator' group if one doesn't already exist.
