This function allows banning IPs that may be used by users who abuse the forum functions or violate the forum rules and policies.
This function is similar to the Banning IPs tool used by administrators. However, the Ban IPs tool used by administrators can ban IP from all forums, while moderators can only ban IP from forums which he manages.
Banning IP on a specific forum
Go to the forum you want to ban IP.
Click on the Action bar, then select Banned IPs from the drop-down menu. The Banned IPs form opens.
Do the same actions as the Banning IPs section of Administrators.
