For more information about usergroups and permissions, read the Usergroups and Permissions section of the manual. The “Banned Users” usergroup has all permissions set to ‘no’ by default.
The form has the following fields:
- User Name
Enter the username of the user you would like to ban.
- Move User to Usergroup Default: Banned Users
This is the usergroup to which the specified user will be moved.Note:Only usergroups that are specified as banned groups will be displayed here.

This is the length of time that the ban will be in effect. Available time periods range from 1 day to 2 years. You can also select a permanent ban.
- Reason to show the user
This message will be shown to the user (along with the ban duration set above) every time they visit the site while the ban is in effect.
