XF 1.2 Block PMs

    Does anyone know how members of my forum could block PM's from a certain member? I have looked around Google but there doesn't seem to be anything made to stop this.

    Hope someone can help.

    This was an addon I asked @Daniel Hood about (a while ago), whether it would be possible. I'm sure he could do it :)

    If you ignore a user, an PC they send to you is never delivered to your inbox.

    The only thing is its a staff member who wants to block a user, so he still needs to see his/her posts. :(

    In that situation, yes, you'll need a custom add-on.

    I'm pretty sure they're still sent.

    I have a member on KH-Vids that doesn't particularly like me; a while ago, he sent me a PC because I was quoting and liking his content and he wanted me to stop because he had me on his ignore list, which I was unaware of, and I was able to reply to his PC.

    Put me on ignore again, but this time send me a PC, and I'll see if my reply goes through while ignored.

    So it blocks conversations if the blockee sends a PC to the blocker, but not replies from the blockee if the blocker sent a PC to the blockee.

    If you are staff you will be able to send a private message, regardless of the user ignoring you or not. I think it is the Always invite users to personal conversation permission.

    Well, users can't ignore staff, anyway, so that's an invalid statement.
