I wrapped my forum for iOS and submitted the app to Apple. It got rejected for the following reasons around safety issues. Is there any way to enable/implement these features in WPForo?

- A method for filtering objectionable content
- A mechanism for users to flag objectionable content
- A mechanism for users to block abusive users

Users can flag objectionable content, but is there a setting to enable filtering of objectionable content or a way for users to block other users? Is it an add-on perhaps?

- A method for filtering objectionable content

gvectors has "Forums Censure PRO" to filter any content that may be objectionable

- A mechanism for users to flag objectionable content

You can report objectionable content via wpForo to the administrators/mods already

- A mechanism for users to block abusive users

I haven't yet checked whether this has been added to wpForo 2?

Hi @seancallahan,

can you explain this option? What it does and how it works?

@chris this most likely is the feature being discussed in this thread

@chris @fawp It would be just like Twitter or Reddit. You can block a user. That is what Apple wants me to include in the forum. Once you blog a user you won't see any of their posts going forward. It's like an automatic filter, "Don't show any content/posts/topics from anyone that is blocked." That way, if a user keeps posting annoying things that don't violate the terms of service, a user can block the user to make their forum/discussion experience better. Does a feature like this exist? If not, when do you expect it?

@seancallahan, @fawp, @doyledonato,

Unfortunately, wpForo doesn't have that feature for now, but we will add it to our to-do list,

If you need functionality urgently, you can contact with gVectors Custom Work Team.

@chris Robert mentioned in the other thread that this feature was very resource-intensive for wpForo. You may want to double check if this is still the case with Version 2.

@fawp,

the feature is in our to-do list, so it will be added in wpForo.

@chris Hi Chris, Do you have an ETA of when the feature for a user to block another user will be supported? I'd be happy to pay for it as an add-on. I've also reached out to GVectors twice now about building this for me and I still haven't heard back.

@seancallahan,

The feature is in the to-do list, I can't give an ETA as the feature is going to be in wpForo 2.0 version, so it will be available only after wpForo 2.0 stable release

@chris Is there a way for me to install 2.0 on my site and become a beta tester?

Hi @seancallahan,

It's not recommended to install the v2 on a live site. Especially if you have ongoing issues, you should not do that. You can clone your website to some sub-direcotry or subdomain using Duplicator plugin, then deactivate the wpForo, delete it, upload the v2 and activate it back. So in this way you'll update wpForo on a test website and check it. But if you have some issues with current wpForo you'll most likely have the same issue on v2.

I've just added you to the beta testers team, please find the Beta Testers forum and go to the latest beta release topic.
