Modactions delete user (and user's posts)

URL: http://footballitalia.myfastforum.org

Templates: cms_modactions.tpl

Keywords: modactions, modactions delete

Reference thread: MODACTIONS and REPORT portals available.

Is it possible for me to edit the cms_modactions.tpl to be able to include the delete user (and user posts) actions on the modactions portal?

If it's not possible because the code is not present in the .php files it's no problem, i just wanted to know before i spend time trying to do something that is impossible from just editing the .tpl files.


These are the actions i'm referring to...

I don't think this is possible, but there isn't much need for a mod to delete an account.    A mod can disable an account which renders it useless, and then the accounts can be deleted by the Admin.

Yeah i know thanks, i was just wondering if i could make the modactions portal have all the functions of the 'Special admin-only fields' section in the admin panel so the admins wouldn't have to bother going through the userlist in the admin panel. The modactions i think does all the functions that the 'Special admin-only fields' section does, except this delete user (and posts) function. Just thought it would make life handier for my admins, but if it can't be done because it's seen as unnecessary it's no probs.

Understandable there. So more like adminactions to be possibly listed there as well - for those with admin access.

It's worth discussing, and should not be too hard to figure out.

It is a thing to consider, my own feeling and I use MODACTIONS a lot, is that it is rare for a spammer to post more than once, and so the need for "delete posts" is small, and there is always a danger in exposing powerful delete functions to quick access.

Yeah i didn't think about that. I just assumed it was omitted because the 'delete user/user's posts' was added to the 'Special Admin-only fields' after the modactions portal was built.

Oh yeah, if it was to be done separating it from the modactions would make better sense actually, good point.

Suppose as Admin said it's probably a bit dangerous for trigger-happy admins though.

Thanks for the replies, appreciated.

Also, thanks to Symon for the guide on howtodoit, i would've been lost without that.
