Special thanks to Aeronaut for the image!

Sales Pitch
Are you tired of banning spambots? Along with banning, you also may find it necessary to rid the profile data, such as a spam website they may link to. Let the BAN HAMMER take the grunt work out of it! This modification will, in one single step, allow you to mass ban and rid all profile data of the user accounts you specify. But wait, there's more! you will also find not one, but TWO check boxes in the MCP module, you may choose to, along with banning, DELETE all their posts and/or DELETE all of the PMs they have sent!

What it is Exactly
It is a MCP module using the "banning" permission set, so you can do it on the go, and give your Moderators the power as well. It is avaible for both Prosilver and Subsilver2

Assigning a Rank
Do you want to automatically assign them a rank while banning? (If you have a BANNED rank or something of that nature) Easy! It requires only a few steps.
1) Log into your ACP > Users and Groups (tab) > Manage Ranks
2) Find the rank you wish to assign banned users, and click edit
3) Look in your URL bar, it might look something like this:

Code: Select all

http://localhost/community/adm/index.php?i=ranks&sid=3349c8da2cfee20ff52826f4dedb9682&mode=ranks&action=edit&id=8
4) At the end, you will see a value called id, in this case, "id=8"
5) Now that you know your rank id (8 in this sample), open root/includes/mcp/mcp_ban_hammer.php
Find:

Code: Select all

                                'user_birthday'            => ' 0- 0-   0',   
Add After:

Code: Select all

                                'user_rank'                => '8',   
Be sure to change '8' to what your rank's id you wish to assign is.
6) Save and test it out (No need to purge cache)

Genders
Are you using evil<3's Genders MOD?
bonelifer was kind enough to create a simple alteration to clear that data as well, it can be found at this link.

Planned Features (for 1.1.0)
  • Ban Hammer accessible via ACP
  • ACP Configuration - Assign Trash Can Forum, instead of deletion
  • ACP Configuration - Assign rank to give hammered members
  • ACP Configuration - Set predefined Ban reasons


I hope you find Ban Hammer useful! :D

I just edited it into my reserved post, along with some additional information many potential users might find useful.

looks like an outstanding mod!

Only thing I could think of to improve it would be to somehow add a ban for the most active IP or latest IP maybe and banning of the account's email if a forum is restricted to one account per email or disabled if multiple accounts are allowed. Then it would cover everything.

Anyway, thanks again for this mod looks great.

I think the mod team made some minor changes includes/mcp/mcp_ban_hammer.php. Just re-upload the file, there is no need to run the installer again.

Why not design an ACP Module to go with it and assign the rank :D

I am writing that for the next release. ;)

It will have the option to designate a rank, AND you can choose a forum as a trash can to dump all the posts into instead of deleting.

Awesome...the only reason I dont use this mod is because of the deletion of the threads and I would prefer to move them kind of archiving the trash. So with that added then perfect.
