    I recently imported a forum and the user bans did not transfer over for some reason. I have a list of userids I would like to ban on xenForo. Is there a simple query to do this correctly?

    About how many userid's on this list?

    You can use phpmyadmin and run a query like this example:

    UPDATE xf_user
    SET is_banned='1'
    WHERE user_id='1' OR user_id='2'
    Edit your list to the following format

    user_id='1' OR user_id='2' etc...

    Once your list is updated to the proper format, copy and paste in into the query.

    Always backup your database before running such a query.

    Thanks. I was wondering if that was the only place that needs to be updated as I also see there is a user_ban table.

    I overlooked the xf_user_ban table. In this case it looks like writing a short PHP script to update both tables is the best solution.
