XF2 Ignore/Block Essentials | XenForo 2 Addon

XF2 Ignore/Block Essentials

2-Way Ignore / Global Ignore / True Block
Powerful Block Features

What is it?


Introducing "XF2 Ignore/Block Essentials", containing the most highly requested ignore/block features missing in XF2.

Say goodbye to your moderation headaches.

2-Way Ignore / Block:
Allow users to block members entirely. Neither user will see the other's content. (Similar to Facebook / Twitter)


Global Ignore:
Admins can put users in Global Ignore, meaning their content will only be visible to themselves, no one else. (Based on vBulletin's "Tachy Goes to Coventry" feature)

How does it benefit you?

That`s a more one example of a fine very good work by AddonFlare.

After the easy installation, the Add-on works as design. No bugs reporting, no errors and no forced use modifications. I can totally recommend this product to any admin who need such this feature.

My suggestion is to implement an expanded ignore options, like ignore threads and hole sections of nodes., for not showing up in "Whats New"link.

The built-in XF ignore function is pointless and does nothing. This addon improves upon that system adding 2-WAY blocking ensuring when I block "problem-user" they are GONE FOR GOOD from my feeds, forums, post, conversations. Highly recommended.
