About:
Moderator Essentials provides your moderators with valuable tools and features that help make their daily tasks much easier.
Main feature is a front end Moderator Log that allows your moderators to see what actions other moderators are taking around the forum as they happen.


Feature List:
  • Moderator Control Panel. Moderator Control Panel that features some tools from the admin panel;
    • Ability to view banned members (requires permission "ModEss - Ban Users")
    • Ability to ban members (requires permission "ModEss - Ban Users")
    • Ability to unban members (requires permission "ModEss - Ban Users")
    • Ability to search users by ip address (just like the admin panel, no additional permission required).
    • Manage Tags functionality from the admin panel (requires permission "ModEss - Manage Tags")
    • View Moderator Logs (same permission that already enabled this feature)
  • Manage Tags via Inline Moderation Tools. You can select multiple threads from the forum list and click to "Add Tags". Requires the permission "ModEss - Manage Tags".
  • Forum Moderator List. Option to display the moderators of each forum via a link at the top of each forum.
  • Moderator Bar Session Mod Log (beside the reported items count) that counts the number of log entries other moderators are creating:
    1. Clicking it loads a page with all logs (types and actions may be selected via user preferences) since the last time you checked. This allows you to keep track of what other moderators are doing around the forum.
    2. This log will only count and display logs from forums in which the moderator has permission to view the above thread log. The reason for this is because each moderator can have different privileges in different forums. But if he can see the thread log then he is entitled to view all logs in that forum regardless of whether he himself is permitted to perform that particular action.
    3. Log is searchable by type, action name, moderator, or number of days (up to 30 days - set via ACP).
    4. Each moderator can select which log actions they would like to be alerted about. This is done via the Account/Preferences page.
  • View deleted posts/threads placeholders. A user group permission that allows your members to view the placeholders of deleted items - just the place holder without the ability to view the deleted item itself. In the ACP options page you can select whether or not to also include the provided reason for the deletion. Please note that this feature does not work with Tapatalk (and perhaps other similar add-ons). When your members use Tapatalk, then deleted placeholders will not show.
  • Moderation queue items now include the forum title as a link. This helps to quickly identify the item's location within your forum. Also, thread titles now have a link back to the thread.
  • Both the Thread Logs and Mod Log display Thread Ban add-on logs
  • Find Deleted Posts feature.
    • On an AdminCP user profile, add to the "Actions" dropdown a "Find Deleted Posts" option.
    • On front-end member profile, add to the "Moderator Actions" dropdown a "Find Deleted Posts" option.
    • Paginated list, ordered by deleted date (from deleted log)
    • Front-end permission "[ModEss] See all deleted posts by a user" to control if a moderator can see all deleted posts from a user.
  • Thread notes - create (and link) a moderator discussion thread for a thread. Visually similar to a resource and it's discussion thread.
Important Notes:
  • In order to view Moderator Bar Log entries, the moderator must have permission to view the Thread Moderator Log (ie must have at least one basic forum moderator permission). This log will only count and display logs from forums in which the moderator has permission to view the Thread Moderator Log.
  • Strongly recommend: Content Title Edit History add-on (free)

A convenient addition for large forums, as well as adding useful features for moderators which for some reason are not out of the box. It’s also convenient to keep track of who and what was doing when receiving data from the journal directly in the panel
This addon provides some extremely valuable tools for admins and moderators and is well worth the price. I own several of Xon's addons because the support they give for all of them is top notch, and you shouldn't hesitate to use any of their addons in your own projects.
Thank you for getting this updated to 2.0. This was definitely an essential tool for me with 1.x and the moderators have been begging to get these tools back.
