Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


Do you or your clients run a membership site or forum? If you do you’ll know how tedious it can be moving spam members into different member groups or just looking at their profiles. Member Utilities fixes that.

“I can’t tell you how awesome your utility has been to get rid of over a thousand spam user registrations! Truly a life saver.” - Rusty Talcott

“The controls over users are phenomenal. Just what was needed.” - Andy F

“What a terrific mod.  The sense of satisfaction as I deleted those pesky spammers was one of the best things I’ve done recently.” - Jim Riley

Review Member Profiles – often spammers will sign up and post nothing, but their profiles contain spam links to whatever they’re promoting this week.

Review Posts – you’ve identified that it’s possibly a spam sign up and you can see they’ve posted, but you have to search the forum to find it. Member Utilities allows you to find all forum posts from the control panel members list.

Bulk move – select the members you want to move within the control panel members list and bulk move.

Ban IP addresses – Option to ban the IP address if you’re moving into the banned members group.

Ban email addresses – Option to ban email addresses if you’re moving into the banned members group.

Delete all posts – Option to remove all posts if you’re moving into the banned members group.

Email notifications – Get an email notification whenever a site member updates their bio or URL profile field

All from the control panel members list.

We use Member Utilities right here on devot:ee. Helps make short work of eliminating the bad apples. The developer is also very, very helpful. Recommended for sites that have many users and memberships.

This doesn’t stop spammers, but it makes cleaning up after them a lot easier. Easily worth it.

An essential purchase for anyone with a large number of members to manage within ExpressionEngine. I personally have had a wave of spammers and bots signing up to my EE community site and this is a real lifesaver for managing those ****tards ;)

Sensibly priced too. Great work!
