Banning Users

Console allows you to apply different types of ban on the user. These bans are:

  • Full ban: prevents the user from the ability to log in to post content.
  • Post ban: allows the user to login and engage with content in all ways except the ability to post new content to the site.
  • Full ban and hide posts: In addition to fully banning the user, this ban type hides all the posts they have published on the site.
  • Hide posts only (ghost): Allows the user to engage as usual, but noone else will be able to see their contents.

Displaying the ban message to end user

When issuing a ban, moderators have the option in the moderation console to include a custom message that can be shown to the users when they try to log in but are not allowed because of the ban.

Please note that in order to display this message to end user, additional code customizations are required. Review the documentation on how to display the ban message to end users.

Viewing Banned Users

You can view all the users that have been banned in Viafoura Admin under the Users page, then select "BANNED" from the menu on the left.
