How to Ban a User On-site

You have the option of banning users from posting to your site. You can achieve this through one of two locations, on any article that the specific user has commented on or from the Viafoura Admin Center.



You must be logged in as a site administrator or moderator to perform these functions.

Go to a comment the user has made and click on the ellipsis icon to the bottom right of the comment. You will see an option to Ban user. Clicking on this will permanently ban the user and remove all comments the user had made on the site. As a moderator or administrator you will continue to see the user’s comments, however other users will not. Once you ban a user from an article, you cannot remove the ban from them at this point, removing a ban is only possible from the Admin Center.
