  • Keywords dev-feedback added
  • Summary changed from when user is mark as spammer - they can still post to forums to Logging in as a marked spammer does nothing and shows no error message
  • Version set to 1.3

Tested this on 1.3-bleeding.

When I marked a user as a spammer and attempted to login as the spammer, the spammer just gets redirected to the $bp->root_domain with no message saying that the spammer was banned. So the original bug report no longer applies.

However, should the logged-in spammer see a template notice saying that s/he was banned? Seems like a usabilty bug to me, especially if a user was marked as a spammer accidentally.

Changed the title of the ticket to reflect this issue.

  • Keywords has-patch added

Attached patch adds a template notice using bp_core_add_message() if the logged-in user is a spammer.

Just noticed I made a typo in the notice, replace:

You were marked as spammer


You were marked as a spammer

I put this on a BP 1.2.7 (on WP 3.0.4 MultiSite) install and it doesn't seem to work. Login redirects the user back without any input. I thought it was WP, but apparently not.

A redirection to an error page would almost be better.
