====Restrictions====
 
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.
 
 
 
===Add New Ban===
 
The Add New Ban page of the [[:Category:Ban List]] section of the [[:Category:Administration Panel]] allows you to add new bans to members of your forum. When you need to put a ban on some one you can put a ban on their ip, hostname, email address, or username.
 
 
 
*'''Ban name''' - Enter a name you want to give to the ban. Think of it like a topic subject.
 
*'''Expiration''' - 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 indefinitely set the ban to never expire.
 
*'''Reason''' - Reason for ban, to be displayed to banned member.
 
*'''Notes''' - Notes that may assist other staff members.
 
*'''Restriction''' - What type of ban this trigger will apply when conditions are met for the ban.
 
**'''''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.
 
**'''''Partial Ban''''' - Will ban the member of specific areas as defined right below it:
 
***'''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.
 
***'''Cannot login''' - Disallows user to login.
 
*'''Triggers''' - Conditions where the ban can be applied and the ban restrictions will be put in place.
 
**'''Ban with IP''' - To ban with some one's ip you need all or part of it. You can usually obtain some one's ip from your forum easily. The easiest way to find their is ip is when reading their posts, or the who's online list. When you get their ip you will get their full ip. Full ips always have 4 sections of numbers (127.0.0.1 is an example). Putting their full ip in for ban is alright, but is not always useful if this person has a dynamic ip or dial up. If you ban their ip and they have access later they probably have a dynamic ip or dial up. Even if they do have a dynamic ip or dial up there is still hope. Most ISPs even if dynamic start with the same numbers. (127.0 for example). Lets say you put a ban on some one with the ip 127.0.0.1 and the next day they show up with the ip 127.0.0.2, the first few numbers are the same. You can still ban them, instead of banning their full IP ban part of it. Type it in like 127.0.* instead of the full IP. This works in most cases but some people's ips still change. This also doesn't stop them from using a proxy to visit your website.
 
**'''Ban with a Hostname''' - A hostname is a string of characters used to identify a particular computer system. Doing this will ban the hostname of the user.
 
**'''Ban by Email Address''' - You can also ban some one by the e-mail address they use. You can do this in two ways. Either their full e-mail address or part of their e-mail address. Banning some one by their full e-mail address in most cases is useful enough to ban some one. Some times however some one may have many e-mail addresses. You may still be able to ban them. In this case you should use part of their e-mails. Instead of typing in their full e-mail address type in something like *@hotmail.com. This is alright if they use a custom e-mail service that isn't used by many people, but if you put an e-mail ban on large e-mail providers like hotmail and gmail no one using their e-mails will be able to get past the ban.
 
**'''Ban By Username''' - To ban some one by their [http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile WHERE ID_BOARD NOT IN (14,11);u=3916| username] just type in their username. This will prevent the [[Member]] from rejoining with that name; however, that [[Member]] could [[Register]] with another username.
