    This add-on is untested to work with Tapatalk, and I am unable to support any conflicts which may be caused by the use of it.

    This add-on introduces potentially breaking changes to moderation permissions. Please review usergroup permissions carefully!

    This is a formally private addon which has been in use for about 6 months before being released.

    A Collection of improvements to XF's reporting system. Fully phrased.

    Please see the FAQ for the list of addons this addon is known to be incompatible with.

    On install, all existing warnings are copied into a new warning change tracking log and associated with reports. This process occurs as a background task, and is non-disruptive.

    Note; when reports are sent to a forum, the warning<->report links can not be created!

    Feature list:
    • Permission based access to the report center:
      • Default permissions set for groups (global/content) for groups with warn or edit basic profile permissions.
      • New Permissions:
        • View Report center.
        • Comment on open report
        • Comment on closed report
        • Update a report's status
        • Assign report
        • See reporter username
    • User tagging in report comments. (does not yet support user group tagging)
    • Adds Spam Cleaner links in AdminCP (under actions) and to the Moderation Queue front-end
    • Sends an Alert to moderators who have commented/reported on a report.
      • Only sends an alert if the previous alert hasn't been viewed.
      • Report Alerts link to the actual comments for longer reports
      • Report Alerts include the title of the report.
      • Configurable how report comments alerts are sent to moderators (see FAQ).

    • Optional ability to log warnings into reports when they expire. This does not disrupt who the report was assigned to, and does not re-open the report.
    • Report Comment Likes.
    • Report Alerts are logged into Report Comments.
    • Search report comments
      • Optional ability to search report comments by associated warning points. (Requires Enhanced Search Improvements add-on)

    See FAQ for how these permissions are automatically assigned.

  1. Shiro
    Version: 1.2.4
    This is literally a must-have add-on for any forum of considerable size. The most important feature this add-on contains is the fact that warnings and reports are synced with each other.
  2. Freelancer
    Version: 1.1.4
    Great addition to the report system which is very bare-bone in its core. Helps keeping better overview. Much recommended.
  3. Shiro
    Version: 1.0.22
    This is an excellent addon, especially the functionality to link warnings to reports. Xon is an amazing developer, as he worked with me to create a workaround for a bug caused by another plugin for which he did not program. Highly recommended!
  4. kontrabass
    Version: 1.0.18
    Giving this one highest marks. I'm thrilled that Xon decided to release this formerly private add-on. If you have a moderate or large sized board, these report improvements will add grease to the wheels of your staff operations. Report comments no longer exist in a vacuum due to mod tagging and alerts, and the tie-in with warnings is a huge time saver. Thanks Xon!!!
