Banned memeber in the memberlist

Post by la podenquera on August 23rd 2012, 2:03 pm

When I have banned members I still see them in the memberlist. How can I delete them from the list? I am eliminating all those people who aren't members in the club.

If you ban a member, he just cannot use this account because it's blocked. If you don't want him in your hole forum, you have to delete his account.
ACP->Members&Groups->Click on the member who should be deleted, scoll down, click on "Click here to delete this user; this cannot be undone." and then save.

No, she is asking how to remove a banned user from the members list, WITHOUT deleting the account.

Sadly I don't think this is possible. It seems like a large flaw to be honest as I have always thought "why would a forum want to advertise banned members??"

Anyway it might be possible with some coding but my knowledge of coding is minimal at best so I can't honestly help you.

Try deactivating it!

ACP => Advanced Mode => Users & Groups (tab) => Search Users => insert the user's name into the search tab then click 'Search' => Look down and click on the modify icon (looks like a bolt next to the permissions icon) => scroll down to the bottom until you reach options that are under the 'Special admin-only fields' => User is active: tick NO.

Now that will likely get him unbanned, considering there's a 'banned' option next to it (not completely sure about getting him unbanned, it's just a guess). Then you may re-ban.

I've noticed this working on various other forums; and I hope it would work for you too. Wink

If it doesn't help you, I have to apologize; as I've tried to, simply, assist you.
