Mass User Creation and Auto Posting
Mod Version: 2, by alexgeek (Member) alexgeek is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2008 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (7 votes - 4.86 average) Installs: 66
Released: 02 Jan 2008 Last Update: 03 Jan 2008 Downloads: 813
Not Supported DB Changes Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations External Content  

What this is.
This script will allow you to create mass users with just a few customizations (or you can just use the defaults which are pretty good).
You may want to use this to make your forum seem more popular, for testing purposes or any other need.
The username, password and email of each user created will be outputted to your page once created. I recommend you save this for access to the accounts (unless you have the CYB login to user mod).
The username is created by taking a random base name out an array and appending it with numbers.
The password is completely random - alphanumeric.
The email is based on the username with a few more digits added and a random domain selected.

howto install
  1. Upload file to your forum root
  2. Open yourdomain.com/forum/(usergenerate.php / usergenv2.php)
  3. Follow instructions and customize the users to be created.
  4. Press submit.

You provide from the following when mass creating users:
  • Amount - Only input required. I recommend no more than 50 per time.
  • Usergroup - which usergroup all users will be put into.
  • Usertitle - the usertitle the users will have.
  • Password - If not set a random password will be generated else the same password will be used for all users created.
  • Email - If not set an email will be created based on the username else all users will have the same email address (Automatically allows this, no vbulletin option editing required).
  • Username generating - How to generate the usernames (default list, your own file or online list).
  • Auto posting - Whether or not to post a thread by each user, if selected you can choose whether the post and title come from the default list, your own file or online.
With this info you can either generate the users straightaway or preview the results in a table.
I will add more customizations if requested, but only to those that mark as installed!

I recommend you rename this file as anybody can access it at present.

There may be a few bugs, so please post any you find.

ToDo:
  • added!Add an option so that the users will automatically post an introduction.
  • added!Add more user names to array.
  • added! Add username and email checks so that no duplicate entry errors occur (Unlikely that they will though).
  • Add security (Everyone can access this script at the moment).
  • added! Style generated results with CSS.
  • added! Add javascript functions for ease of use.

You can help by posting arrays of generic usernames.
E.G.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you would like to add to the username array so that the usernames do not seem repetitive please post an array like above with at least 20 usernames in.

Just tested and isntalled, works like a beatuy on 3.7b3

Also, just upload it to your admincp folder and access it from there, You'll have to have admin privledges to run then.

I want to create about 50 accounts on one of my new sites, to be RSS feeds posters. This would save lots of time then having to create an account one at a time. However I would prefer if the email field was blank, and that the option of displaying email address be set to no.

If this is doable, then let me know ^^

Thanks.

an email is required and cannot be a duplicate (more than one user with the same email).
Let me know if you want something else though.
Such as all the RSS Feed posters have the email rssnumber@example.com

im compleatly against making fake users for a site

but i test almost every new mod/hack just to see what its about

and ill give you props thats the easiest way to make fake members i ever seen

i just may make a new user group to put some fake people in just to see how many i can do before people catch on then prune them fakes out

lol i hate fake users but good work

I agree this isn't the best way but some people may be desperate or have other reasons.

That is a setting in vBOptions. If you change it you don't need a unique e-mail.

Okay, I will add an option to either base the email on the username or use one provided.

granted but a lot of people walk away with a site that has very few members. I have added some and posted as myself and talked to myself, it may be sad but it has helped increase forum activity.
