Support » Plugin: Block, Suspend, Report for BuddyPress » Hide report and block buttons after activation

  • Resolved Carsten Lund


    Hi Ben, it would be a great feature if the report and block buttons disappears when a user has reported or blocked another member.

    If a user already has blocked another user, he would know. Sometimes a user can have blocked a user by mistake, by pushing the wrong button, and he wouldn’t even know he had blocked the user.

    Hey @carsten-lund,

    Actually, I had added the block/unblock idea to the roadmap and should be in the next version. It will make it more consistent with the approach of the suspend/unsuspend button that administrators have.

    Doing the same with the report button is more complicated, as I want users to be able to report more than once at the same time. I can’t change the report button to ‘unreport’ when clicked as the report is already submitted, and I don’t want to delete it, for the reason above.

    Hope that makes sense!

    I see the problem with the report button, what about ‘report again’?

    Sometimes users regret the action, of reporting another member, any thoughts about that case?

    I’m not a fan of that – it would be a lot of effort interrogating the database, to search for any previous reports made by that user, for very little gain.

    I’ll keep thinking 🙂

    Re the issue of regretted reports, I’ve never had that reported as an issue, so am unlikely to think about it unless it becomes a problem. May be worth looking to see how Facebook/Twitter etc deal with it.

    It could be just an unreport option in the drop down,of course it does not cancel the report, but gives the admin a better overview
