How to mark a member as a spammer

    I’m running on WP 3.0 and the latest BP.

    How do you mark a member as a spammer on the dashboard or is this option only enabled on the default admin bar? I don’t have the default admin bar enabled.

    If you’re using WP in network mode, login to the WP dashboard, navigate to “Super Admin > Users”.
    Check the users you want to mark as spam and under the dropdown menu, select “Mark as Spam” and apply the changes.

    I don’t see this feature when network mode isn’t enabled though (unless I’m not looking in the right place?).

    Nope doesn’t appear to be the ability to mark a user as spammer in single WP 3.0, love to know why, what’s the difference still a registered user, shouldn’t matter a jot whether blogs are enabled or not. It feels as though WP single is a poor cousin to WP MS

    @r-a-y I presume network mode is MU? I’m running it on normal / single WP 3.0 without MU enabled.

    @hnla – Is there any plugins available to mark them as spammers or should I re enable the admin bar every time I want to mark a member as a spammer?

    Yes network mode is MS or MS

    Not sure if there are any plugins to do this, Ray may have a better idea. How comes you are not using the adminbar and could you not simply lift that particular adminbar nav item and set it somewhere else just for admin? shouldn’t be too difficult to accomplish.

    Ideally WP wants to correct what I suspect is a glaring oversight? might be worth checking the WP forums to see if the issue has been raised there.

    Instead of re-enabling the admin bar every time, why don’t you just use this xprofile_setup_adminbar_menu() somewhere in your theme?
    Make sure you wrap [ul] around the function though.

    Either that, or enable the BuddyBar for admins only.

    @r-a-y I’m not sure I understand? I should be on the member’s profile if I want to mark them as a spammer? Can I use that function to enable the admin bar?

    How do I enable the buddybar for admins only?

    What I’m saying is put the xprofile_setup_adminbar_menu() function somewhere in a member template.

    Then you’ll have access to the admin links.

    For BuddyBar for admins, that would also have to be custom-coded.

    Thanks @r-a-y I have this in my wp-config file to disable the admin bar: define( ‘BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR’, true );

    Is it possible to add a button in the member’s profile page to add them as a spammer?
