There are multiple types of restrictions or bans you can use. You can use the following restrictions or bans on people, ips, hostnames, e-mails, or usernames: Cannot Post, Cannot Register, and Full Ban.
- Cannot Post - If you put a post restriction/ban on an ip, username, e-mail, or ip you take away the right to post. This allows them to visit your site, but that is about it. This is good if you just want to stop some one from posting but allow them to visit your forum.
- Cannot Register - When you put a registration restriction/ban on an ip, username, e-mail, or ip you take away the right to register at your forum. If they currently have an account on your forum they will be able to use it, however they won't be able to register a new one. This type of restriction or ban is nice if you have some one who registers multiple times.
- Full Ban - When you put a full ban or restriction on something, they will not have the right to visit your site. This means they cannot read, regist, or post on your site. So if you really want to get rid of some thing or some one this is the way to do it.
- Ban Expirations - You can set bans to restrict some one forever or just a limited time. If you wish to just punish some one temporarily, use the Ban will expire after x day(s) feature. If you would like to ban some one indefinatly set the ban to expire Never.
