Manage Bans in Dolphin

How to ban users from your Dolphin social community

Banning users is also a feature supported with the default installation of the Boonex Dolphin platform. This feature will allow you to ban users you would like to easily and fast for example if any of the users is related to spam activity or is violating your Terms Of Use.

 

To manage the bans in Dolphin, you will need to:

Step 1 Access the Members page

Since banning users is actual modification on the user account you will need to login into your administration area and navigate to the Members link.

There you will be able to find the member you would like to ban under the Members section.

 

Step 2 Ban a member

For the purpose of this tutorial we have added two members to our Social Community – Space and Nebula.

 

Members-page

 

Let’s say that we have reason to believe the Nebula member is spamming our Social Community with spam contents either via messages to the other members or by submitting spam content on our Blogs.

In order to ban the member to be banned we will need to mark the member by clicking on the checkbox located inside the member’s avatar and then use the Ban button.

 

 

Once the member is banned his name will be colored in red and the member will be no longer active.

Step 3 Unban a member

The process of Unbanning a member is similar with the only difference that you will need to simply use the Unban button instead of BanIf you would like to see all of the banned users you can simple use the Banned option in the Overview section of the same page.
