User Warning Logs

The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

Tools & Maintenance: Warning Logs

The User Warning Logs allow you to view all of the warnings on your forum with ease. You are shown the warned user, the warning given (and the number of points given), the date issued, when the warning expires (and if it was revoked), and the user who issued the warning. You can also choose to view all details of the warning.

You can filter warning logs by:

  • Warned user
  • User who issued the warning
  • Reason for the warning

You can sort the results by:

  • Expiry Date
  • Issued Date
  • Warned User
  • User who issued the warning ("Issued By")

You can sort the results in ascending or descending order. You can also specify the number of results to display per page.

Tools & Maintenance: View Warning Log

When you select to "View" a warning, you are taken to a page showing all details for the warning. These include:

The time this warning expires, if it has not already been revoked.
Administrative Notes 
The notes listed for this warning that can only be seen by moderators and administrators.

Beneath the details table, you are presented with a text area allowing you to revoke the warning. To revoke the warning, you must enter a reason.

If the warning has already been revoked, you will be given the following details:
