Exclude Certain Members with Warning

by thescott » Fri Aug 09, 2019 4:01 pm

Is there a way I can modify this extension to exclude a specific member from being mentioned by generating an error message when someone tries to mention the member that then prevents the post from being posted?

The primary reason is this: due to the large volume of posts we have, I want people to use the main contact link to contact admins rather than just tagging the admin in a post, since admins won't be able to read all the posts in the forums even if tagged. So in other words when someone tries to contact the main admin I want to generate an error message like, "Please do not the use the mention BBcode to tag Robert. Instead, please send Robert a message using the contact link."

one approach: hack it into your phpBB style with jQuery

I won't be adding it to the extension itself, sorry.
