In progress Completely hide posts by banned members?

Post by silvering8 on May 10th 2017, 1:13 am

Hello!

Is there any way we can completely hide the posts of banned members so that other members cannot see them anymore?

It's impossible to delete them, but every time we have to ban someone, we have to explain to other members, even though we have set up clear rules members accept to abide by when registering to the forum.

Thanks in advance!

HI there,

Do you mean not see them permanently or just not see them unless they click on something to display it?

Hello @silvering8.
You can do this by creating a basket forum and make it visible to staff only. Using this method you will have to send every message one by one of each banned member to it. However, there is another option to what you want to achieve. It is possible to remove the messages of a member using this HTML: Click Here

Hopefully this will help you with you message removals.

Hi Draxion,

I don't mind seeing them, as an admin, but I was wondering if there is a way to make completely invisible for the other members the line saying "This member is banned - See the message", in order to avoid having to answer to any random member why we had to do it. Sometimes it feels like we can't even moderate the forum and we have to answer for everything (even though there are clear rules, substantiated by international, American and European Law).


Hi Legionheart,

we will try both options and notify you how it goes.

Thank you both for the answers!

@Legionheart,

I followed the second option. The code worked just fine. It now carries me to a page with an empty field, where I suppose I put a member's name in, and a click button saying "Delete all messages".

It's nice to have this option - however, we will still have to decide whether we want to delete all messages written by a member, but that's an administration issue.

Thanks again! Very Happy

There is a setting in your ACP that hides the posts made by the banned member but it has text that you click to see the posts for all members.
looks like :


if that is any help you can do the following:

ACP >> General Tab >> Messages and e-mails >> Configuration "scroll right to the bottom of the page " >> Hide messages from banned members : YES

Now i made a code to hide the link that members press to see the thread but it will show this still


This code only works for version phpBB3 "Not tested on other forum version's Sorry"
Place this in your CSS files:
Code:
.togglableMsgLabel{
visibility: hidden !important;
}
