    Description / Features:
    This add-on allows users at your forum to totally block other users. It provides an valuable extension to the default XenForo user ignore feature.

    A user blocking another user is totally hidden towards the blocked user and the blocked user is also totally hidden from the blocking user. This includes all content they may have created at your forum.

    The user blocking the other user can release the block at any time after which all content of the 2 users will reappear and can be seen again by both of them.

    There is a permission to allow the admin to give the "Blocking" permission to certain user groups or even single users only.

    There are options to allow the admin to favor the general use of "User Blocking" over the default use of "User Ignoring" at his board, to change the links and title of the user ignore management page in account settings and to disable the possibility of unhiding hidden content for all or just those users who are allowed to use the blocking feature.

    The add-on supports the default XenForo product and the following third party add-ons out of the box: XenForo Media Gallery (XFMG), XenForo Resource Manager (XFRM) Showcase by XenAddons and XenZine Articles.

    I must say, Fatih Ozcan, this add-on does EXACTLY that... It blocks everything, posts, images, icons - the whole lot. everything gets blocked.

    This is one of the best add-ons I have bought and it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    I highly recommend this if you want to allow users' to block other users. A must!

    Honestly, there is no difference from XenForo Original Ignore System. E.g; If I block any user, I still can see his/her MemberCard and I can see them in whos online list, in messages, etc. It’s not good. Another e.g. in message area, if block any user, there is still displays avatars. Only disable message text and that’s very bad. I block a user, you never view them in everywhere. It should be like this.

      There is a setting in options which needs to be enabled to totally block users from each other. If this option is not set (it is diabled by default) the add-on acts like an extension of the default 'ignore' system and won't block users but only hide their content like the default XenForo ignore system does.

      I also want to mention, that we didn't got a single complaint or support ticket about this add-on from any of our customers, even not from Fatih Özcan. Please contact us, we'll certainly help you to get this add-on working at your site as you expect.

      This add-on generally works as expected and advertised above. It is used successfully at all of our own forums and many customer forums as well. We would be happy if you think again about your review and correct it to not provide false informations. Thank you.
