To explain it more, When a new user registers on your board it will automatically post a new topic welcoming them, you can define the message in the acp.

ok. But the function of modrobot is to create new topics with some subjetc,etc.

Can it work like this? i point to the robot to create a new topic in X forum with Y message.
The idea is to create a "newsbot".

possibility to stick the post bot to one forum just like with registration now it can post everywhere which is not my intention :p

and when the action is post in topic the make also that you have first to choose the forum and then the topic as the topic list is now long very long

Several dutch translations for 3.1 extensions if you need one or there is an update of an extension feel free to notify me.

All those features will be added to the next release.

Just to be clear here are the features you wish!
  • Only reply to a forum specified by the admin,
  • When you click reply it asks for the forum and then you can select the topic.

Have i got that right?

Hi Poppertom!

Awesome MOD, especially due to the auto-welcome feature :D I know this will get good use on our forum!!

I have a question - how do you change the ID for the account used for the post bot? The account for ID 4 on our forum is deactivated so its denying me whenever I try to turn this MOD on :P

Also a feature request - can the post bot be set with a different name for welcome posts? So in other words, one name used for autowelcomes and the other for anonymous posts on the forum?

Reason being is that we have a sort of anonymous poster program on our forum where members have the option to login to a spare account and make personal/sensitive posts for non-judgemental opinions. It would be good to use this MOD as an alternative to the spare account (and sounds very possible going by your description of it) however it would be preferable that new members are not welcomed to the forum by "anonymous" or "secret parent" (the name of our spare account) and by something more warming if you know what I mean!

So the ability to set a different username for the bot for the welcome mode (just to us in that specific welcome forum) as well as a general username for the bot to use elsewhere on the board would be great :D

Otherwise I can't wait to see how this MOD develops!!

So you want to be able to select two different user id's. One for the welcome post bot and one for the "anonymous" post bot? if i have got that correct can you post back and i'll include it in the next release for you!

Yes, here is a screenshot with the line highlighted in red which I think I need to change? The account ID.

http://www.theparentingsanctuary.net/screenshot7.jpg

As at the moment its giving me the following error message when I try to submit any changes to Post Bot settings...

Information

The requested user does not exist.


(Though user "RedTrinity" is me and an active account on there, so don't get that bit)

So you want to be able to select two different user id's. One for the welcome post bot and one for the "anonymous" post bot? if i have got that correct can you post back and i'll include it in the next release for you!


Yep that sounds right! Would be a great option to have so that the Bot can have multiple uses :)
