Banned users

    Hey guys,

    Every time an user gets banned, I want to show that the user is banned on his profile page and on every post that he posted on. Default, it seems XF shows nothing, so even if the user is banned, it just shows as a regular user.

    How can I change this?

    Thanks!

    Add them to a banned user group - set this in the ACP to happen automatically when banned.

    Banned member profiles are not accessible to regular members.

    and here comes the silly question, do I have to run a cron to move the banned users into the new usergroup? I launched the Usergroup Promotion cron with no luck

    Just create the Banner user group and set it under ACP -> Options -> User Discouragement and Discipline -> Add User Group on Ban

    ya I did that, however, the banned users before this change, weren't moved automatically there, thus the question :)

    It's not retroactive.

    You will need to manually add them.

    Will they be removed from the usergroup after the ban is complete?
