Introducing "XF2 Ignore/Block Essentials", containing the most highly requested ignore/block features missing in XF2.

2-Way Ignore / Block:
Allow users to block members entirely. Neither user will see the other's content. (Similar to Facebook / Twitter)

Global Ignore:
Admins can put users in Global Ignore, meaning their content will only be visible to themselves, no one else. (Based on vBulletin's "Tachy Goes to Coventry" feature)

We recently paid for a lifetime license, after a few years of limited license extensions. We had no problems in the earlier years when our license was time limited, but that all changed when we finally paid for the lifetime extension. This turned out to be the biggest mistake we've ever made for our forum. $90 of our money, donated graciously by our staff and loyal members, straight down the drain!

We've been ghosted on our support ticket submitted for a broken addon. There are multiple bugs that allow users to bypass the functionality, and additionally we found that the addon was the cause of an issue we were experiencing with the REST API not working on some of our other custom scripts. The dev has not even acknowledged our attempts to get help despite repeated requests through their support website, yet when we finally gave up and disputed the sale through PayPal, they were VERY quick to respond and deny us there, claiming they were in fact providing the product as described. Imagine that! Guess they just don't care about anyone's issues they've reported here, so long as they got their money from you!

We will never use this add-on again. It is now permanently uninstalled from our site, no thanks to the developer, because not even the uninstaller script worked without manual intervention! As it is, it is completely unusable and there is no sign that will change any time soon.

To anyone who stumbles upon this add-on, all I can say is stay away. Stay far, far away.
This add-on is riddled with bugs and is not updated or supported. The developer ignores all bug reports and pretends like everything is OK. Avoid.
So far, so good! I used it to "force ignore" between two guys that just couldn't get along. Otherwise good contributors. This was the perfect solution. No more drama! :-) Thanks!
I used this and I represent my small amount users to Thank you! In my forum, there are males and females and l there is occasional content and conversation harassment.

Your add-on has saved the day. Without it, I would have gotten others to code.

Thank you.
No support ! No answer! Does not suit such a company! we cannot communicate in any way. Really bad situation!
Hi, we can only provide download access until your license expires. A license must be renewed to regain download access.
Addonflare always build awesome addons. But only the issue is their support was bad. Unless you are a quite patient webmaster, then you can wait for every bug fixes or new features within 3 months (as i have experienced)
Hi, yes the last few months have been slower due to an influx of custom work, but we’re not abandoning our add-ons and an update is coming. Thanks for your patience
Does the job, better than expected if I’m truly honest. When you buy, install and manage an add-on, you want two things: 1, the add-on to do the job. 2, as an admin for it to be easy. This is the bomb. Sadly I spent all our saved memberships funds on this but we will be buying that next. This is what you need but don’t know it. 👍🏻 Thank you @addonflair
Thanks for your review :) Glad to hear you’re enjoying it!
That`s a more one example of a fine very good work by AddonFlare.

After the easy installation, the Add-on works as design. No bugs reporting, no errors and no forced use modifications. I can totally recommend this product to any admin who need such this feature.

My suggestion is to implement an expanded ignore options, like ignore threads and hole sections of nodes., for not showing up in "Whats New"link.
We appreciate your review :) More features are coming
Installed, and working nicely. bought it with three months of updates to test it out, will go the full year and branding free as soon as it is time to renew. Great feature!
Awesome, thanks for your review!
Amazing add-on and great support. I highly recommend buying this add-on. I've been waiting a long time for something like this.
Thanks for your review! :)
