Description / Features:
This add-on allows users at your forum to block other users. It provides an valuable extension to the default XenForo user ignore feature.
A user blocking another user is almost* totally hidden towards the blocked user and the blocked user is also almost* totally hidden from the blocking user. This includes all content they may have created at your forum.
The user blocking the other user can release the block at any time after which all content of the 2 users will reappear and can be seen again by both of them.
There is a permission to allow the admin to give the "Blocking" permission to certain user groups or even single users only.
There are options to allow the admin to favor the general use of "User Blocking" over the default use of "User Ignoring" at his board, to change the links and title of the user ignore management page in account settings and to disable the possibility of unhiding hidden content for all or just those users who are allowed to use the blocking feature.
The add-on supports the default XenForo product and the following third party add-ons out of the box: XenForo Media Gallery (XFMG), XenForo Resource Manager (XFRM), Showcase by XenAddons and XenZine Articles.
* "almost" means that XenForo currently has not implemented the "Ignore" feature to the software's default "Like" system. So "Likes" given to content by blocked or ignored members will be visible even after installation of this add-on.
