Link to Mod

Yet another update of the Visual Warning mod, originally created by Grudge and updated by Permutations (1.1 beta 3), Xenovanis (1.1 RC1), Aaron (1.1 RC2, 1.1 RC3, 1.1) and Eleglin (1.1 - 1.1.4).

Description
This mod allows you to give visual warnings to your users in four stages:
  1) First warning - instant message and a green warning mark next to user name.
  2) Post moderation - the user's posts must be approved before they are seen.
  3) Mute - instant message and the inability to post polls or messages.
  4) Ban - user is gone. :D
Version 1.4+ adds a new option allowing you to hide level warnings for people unable to warn. (SMF 1.1.x)

Latest versions
* Version 1.34 will work with 1.0.x, 1.1 beta 3 public, 1.1 RC1, 1.1 RC2, 1.1 RC3.
* Version 1.41 will work with 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2,  1.1.3 and 1.1.4

F.A.Q. :
Q: Hi, I have just installed this mod, and in the admin menu has created a big blank space between members and membergroups... could someone tell me how to rectify this ?
A: Keep mind that an installation with the package manager :
- don't add the translations on the languages files (except English (iso) )
- don't add the features on the language files for English-UTF8
- don't add the features on a modified theme (it adds only on default theme)
Please refer to Readme and modifications.xml (which are on the zip); You should do a manual installation, as described here.

Q : I tryed to do an installation with the package manager but the tests failed or I can't do it. What can I do ?
A : Please refer to Readme and modifications.xml (which are on the zip); You should do a manual installation, as described here.
If your server is safe_mode on, please refer to Eldacar's method to getting around the safe mode problem

Q : I don't want moderators to ban users; it should only be an admins job. How can I do that?
On installation only the admin will have permission to warn and/or approve posts. If you wish to change that just go to membergroup permissions and assign the relevant group the permissions you wish them to have. Warning - banning is through username only - if you want advanced ban you need to do this manually. Also - even if you give a member the right to warn people they cannot ban them unless they are an admin (ie issue level 4)

Q : Moderators can't have permissions to warn persons... so moderators can't warn persons. Is it normal ?
It's a very interesting question. A warning applicates to an user on the whole forum. That's why we have set theses permissions as general permissions, and not as board permissions.
Well, as you know, moderators don't have "general permissions" since they are set per board. They have specific permissions which can only be used on the board they moderate.
If you want these permissions for a moderator, you should assign him on a "global moderator" group, and assign the relevant group the permissions you wish them to have.

i've got that problem to.

nothing bad about volkswagen but i want to ban users not cars :P :P

-- edit --

VW_4 is right. it is supossed to be there for it is the ban group name not the trigger to ban.

but it wont ban thats the problem and i dont know why cause it does put up the trigger...

Havent tested ban yet, but how can i modify the person who sends a pm when warned, and the message.


Edit: Ban is working, but when i renew lvl of warning to 0 still appears the warning close to signature but not down the display name...

Quote1. it adds the symbol of banned but does not refresh the page so if you click the submit button more then once it shows the red symbol for evry time you click submit.
And ? If a user has reached level 4 (and so if he is banned), I suppose his level reachs 0. As far I know, he's no more on the warning management (he doesn't need), but on the ban management. You see ?
The visual warnings added in the messages (not in the profile) ared added and added, everytime you click on the warn button. It's logical.
So I don't understand the problem.
Quote2. in the ban list instead of the name it shows "VW_4" not the name of he person i try to ban!
As says vosje : "VW_4 is right. it is supossed to be there for it is the ban group name not the trigger to ban."

Well, since the Warning Management lists all users that currently have some form of warning and could be warn again (levels 1,2 or 3),  Level 4 is not listed as these members have already been banned! These members don't need warnings, because they are yet banned... It's logical.
You should use the classical page (ban management ?) for unban the people you want to.

QuoteHavent tested ban yet, but how can i modify the person who sends a pm when warned, and the message.
You can't. It's not a feature of this mod and I won't do it. I don't think it's very useful.
If I'm an user and if I get a warning, I prefer to know who puts me it.
Also, since the process of warning edits the public message (and so you can see who edit this), it wouldn't be useful.
Keep mind it's a visual warning mod, and so all is visual.  ;D

Quotewhen i renew lvl of warning to 0 still appears the warning close to signature but not down the display name...
The warning close is added IN THE MESSAGE when you added a warning. And after that, you edit the message by yourself if you want to remove  this close.

Where do I go to give a user a warning?

I have no time to update the screenshots, so I upload the images of Xenovanis (or Permutations ?).
I will update the screenshots later.

Please refer to the main page of the mod and look at the screenshots, you should understand with these.

This mod adds a button "warn" on every posts (if you are able to warn). Click on this, and you can give a warning.

This happens with all the other mods i've tried..

King Steph - I Had this problem too.....  change your default language from English utf8 to just plain old english and your problem will be solved.

I found this simple solution on the ad management mod thread because I also installed that mod just after and noticed the same thing - a blank apce where the menu item should be - IT WAS AS SIMPLE AS THE DEFAULT LANGUAGE!!!!
