    When user is banned (blocked) he cant view forum, leave his account, view private messages and etc. But i want let them to view forum anyway. Cant find this settings in forum ... so how i can do this?

    How? I need ban their, because only if they are banned system check new members with IP of banned users. If i dont ban them so they just will create new account again and again.

    It's not possible.

    I suggest you discourage the IP and set is so that discouraged IP's cannot make new accounts.

    They have dynamic IP, so i cant set it.

    Why u do so? People always message me, why i cant view forum, cant do anything... Better give Read Only to banned users, so they cant break rules, but can view forum.

    It will require custom development if you want banned users to have read only status.

    Why not create another user group called "Probation" which permit those users to read but not post. Instead of baking them, move them into the Probation user group?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that contradictory? You want to automatically pick up the IP usage but they use different IPs anyway which would prevent the IP detection from working.

    No, because look at example. I got user who 1 year on my forum. For this time he got about 100 different IP adress (perhaps it all his possible ip). So if he will try register new account it will check with 100 different ip and maybe some of them will match and he cant register. But if i ban all this IP, so he will reboot his internet and get this IP until he receive a new IP which is not in ban.
