right now as far as I know the only way to ban a user is to use the admin account.

would it be possible to allow mods to ban users as well?

You mean ban IP, not user, right? Mods can ban registered users.

Moderators have the power to disable/lock member accounts: when logged in as a Mod, one will see at the end of each member's profile a "Member Yes/No" option. "No" disables the member's account, and "Yes" unlocks the account.

Banning by IP or user ID is the most "hard" method of ban, and it is currently available only to admin. Mods can block accounts like marsbar explained, but I personally finding it a bad idea to give somebody except the admin the rights to ban by IP. It should be done only by experienced person.

for example some mods can ban and edit user profiles,
and some mods can not ban and edit profiles,
or ban but without editing user profile!
anyone has idea?

I don't provide custom solutions for free, but it would be possible if you hardly edit the core scripts.

Condition by $user_id will help you...

if(in_array($user_id, $allowed_mods_array)) {
//allow something

I used this condition for File Bank also doesn't show for anyone:

if(in_array($user_id, $allowed_mods_array)){

if($action=='storage' and $user_id>0) include($pathToFiles.'addon_storage.php');
It worked, just wondering if is that ok to use it like that?

I've removed this and just made it for admin in bb_func_usernfo.php but still Mods can edit other profile with this trick:

if($user>1 and ($user_id==1 or ($isMod==1 and $user_id!=$user and !$blockedMod) ) ){

I've disabled editing profile by Moderators but still they can edit user profile with this trick:


if they edit their own profile and copy the link and just change user id.. then they can simply enter user profile:

I'm not sure why you are posting in this topic? This topic is about GIVING moderators ability to ban users.
It's not related to the custom questions.
