Is there anyway that I can ban members from a particular forum?

See, my forum, Forum Central, is a forum that has many different forums. A user has been harrasing the members of a particular forum that I host, but he's also my friend. So to avoid losing 200 members, and 1 good friend, I would just like to ban him from one message board only, not the other 7 boards.

Is this possible?

No, you have to ban him from the whole forum. Or what you could do is make the forum he is harrasing people prvate and give the people who go in there permission to enter.

I concur with Lord...you are in between a rock and a hard spot. Sad to say, if the friendship cannoy make him tone it down, you have few alternatives. With only 200 members you could easily restrict access to the one forum and then grant access as you wish via the control panel to each user. You'll juat have to remember to grant access for any new users.

one possibility: you create a banlist (usernumber|1,2,8,9,...) and add a new ban-check in postings.cgi...

Code
code:
the code is only local tested.

smile Looks very intriguing! Where, may I ask, is userForumBan.cgi that you refer to in the OPEN statement? And where are you inputting the banned user's data?

I can picture using something like Jimbo's hack for usernames...and you can store the data in something like that...but I don't see where you are doing that above.

I only ask because, though I wouldn't find it useful, I think it is fun to follow the code through...so I am curious! smile

GOOD JOB so far!!

Interesting code Joking-down. But where in the code does it only ban a person from one forum?

I followed your instructions, but when I try to access the userForumBan.cgi file on my server, it gives me an error, which I assume is a 500 error.

The perl path is correct, as well, and I'm sure I uploaded in ASCII format. -_-

Uh oh.

Well, I added the "to be banned" account (I made a Test Account), and banned him from the first and fourth forum, but I was still able to post and reply.. -_-

What's wrong?

I has in the moment no notion where the mistake could lie.
have you inputed the correct Usernummer?

add after
Code
code:
the following code
Code
code:
in order to test, whether this User is banned.

Now, you click one new topic for example and supplements the URL with " &Debug=true " and load the URL. now you see whether the UserNumber was recognized right.

I've gone over the steps about 5 seperate times now.

It doesn't seem to perform any action. I created a new account, TestBan. Account number 00000126, and banned it from forum 4. Yet when I click post, and click reply, it allows me to post something each time.

I've tried 0126, 126, 00000126, and even the actual number "120" since this account is the 120th account since a few others were deleted.

It doesn't seem to notice that it's telling the script not to allow posting. I don't understand why, either.

is the user banned, when you save the topic?

In order to ban the User of the complaint of a new topic/new reply, you must add following code to sub NewTopic and sub NewReply

This is a very nice, interesting little hack for v5, but I was wondering if you could make this for 6.20 beta. Also, making something that can be controlled in the main control panel would be very nice.

So, basically, only minor code modifications would be neccessary, and with the ability to be able to control the banning of users to a single forum in the control panel would be an excellent hack.
