Banning User
« on: October 08, 2010, 11:39:25 am »
Hello, my question is that when I ban a user from my site, what is it that they will see on their monitor, a blank page, the home page? (I do not want them seeing anything  >:( ) Will they be able to view the forums and just not post? Can you talk a little about that? Thanks!  :)

If you ban a user. I would do so by IP and membername and email. If you do it by ip they will just get an error message when they view the forum. If you ban by membername, email they will be unable to login as well.

Okay, so if I understand this...ban by IP, username and email address - they will not be able to see site at all (home page for example??) or they can read the boards but cannot post? Thanks  ???

That's correct just make sure you do Full Ban when banning the user.

 :D Okay, now I am really confused by your response...  :D

A complete ban means which one of the following:

1- ban by IP, username and email address - they will not be able to see site at all (home page for example??)

or

2- ban by IP, username and email address - they can read the boards but cannot post?
