Solved How to ban a user group from PMs

Post by lightwrker on July 12th 2010, 6:22 pm

Hi! I need your help.

A spammer got into my forum this morning and sent bad PMs to all my members.

I have several different user groups, for our business. When I don't know who someone is, when they first sign up, I put them into a group called "Forum Only." This group only has minimal access to the posts on the forum.

But instead, they must have headed straight to the PM system and sent out these Pms. My members aren't happy.

Is there a way that I can prevent the "Forum Only" user group from using our PMs, without taking it away from the rest of the members?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Nopes, you need to disable PM's for each user by going into their profile in the admin panel.
