    if I ban some user, he cant do anything, even read threads and conversations

    how can I change permissions for banned users? I want them to read threads and conversations, but cant write.

    is there some add-on? or some settings for it in admin CP?

    It would require custom development.

    Don't ban users. Set a group's permissions to be what you want, revoking most permissions and use a warning + warning action to "ban" them.

    so what about banlist?
    what about ban and unban buttons?

    It would all require custom development.

    A ban in XF is total - no part of the forum is accessible to banned members.

    better solution in vbulletin - if i ban somebody, he moves to usergroup Banned, and I can set permissions for this group. This is universal solution, some admins can set total ban on their forums, and other admins can set it by different way. Choice is better than no choice ;)

    You can achieve exactly the same with the warning system.

    The important thing is to stop thinking about "Ban" because "Ban" in XF is total. What YOU want is reduced permissions and this is how to achieve that:

    1: Create a secondary usergroup which has REDUCED/REMOVED permissions so that members in it can (only) do the things you want and nothing more. I'd recommend NOT using the term "Banned" here to avoid any confusion with a true ban. Another term - we use "Suspended" - is preferable.
    2: Create a suitable Warning or Warnings and a Warning Action that adds members with n points to this usergroup.

    i know it, but it is inconvenient to use
    this way i cant use banlist, and cant ban\unban in one click

    It's not that many clicks to put them back into the user group with full permissions, either.

    @Harpers Tate's solution is the recommended way.

    this way banlist is empty

    Yes, but you can search in the AdminCP for members who are in the UserGroup = "Suspended" (or insert your name for it).
