#5715 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make it possible to flag a user for moderation from the forum profile

Reported by: tobifjellner's profile tobifjellner Owned by: clorith's profile Clorith
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


Currently, the control to toggle the "flag for moderation" is only available next to any of their posts or replies.
This means that when you're on their profile page, you'll have to find at least one of their posts in order to flag the user. And, slightly more disturbing: There seems to be no way to flag someone if no posts are available. That could be useful as a precaution, to flag users who have spammed in other places (make blogs, trac, etc.)

They still can spam where flagged status is not checked (make, trac, translate, codex...)
The proper solution would be blocking them, instead of flagging.

Yes, but there are cases where a mod might want to jump in before a keymaster is available.

Support Forums: Improved topic report flows.

Where previously, a reported topic would store the report in post meta and be limited to the sidebar view, and any reaction would be secret, unless a moderator contacted reporters publicly, this is no longer the case.

When a report is made, while we maintain the modlook tag as before for compatibility reasons, the report is added as a custom post type entry. This allows for tracking vigilant users who help out a lot, as well as giving us access to valuable data about what kind of reports are being made.

The reports are also presented as "replies" within a topic, giving valuable contextual information to those reviewing reports during the time of the report. This element is also presented in such a way that a moderator is able to respond to a report directly, letting the user view their previous reports and their outcomes within their forum profile, as well as them getting notified of the outcome by email when a topic is handled.

Fixes #5715.

In 12894:

Support Forums: Adjust wp-admin capabilities.

The initial post type implementation did not properly declare which capabilities could see the admin UI. Although a limited part of the solution, it is nice for it to actually be accessible.

The capabilities used mirror bbPress', but does not use the bbPress functions to declare them, to avoid unintentional dependency confusion if bbPress ever changes its internal permission-generating functions in the future.

Support Forums: Enhance the reported topic view.

This further improves on the new reported topic view, adding in a reference to the original topic that was reported, and provides some additional styling to make the reports stand out more within the topic context.
