EPC Autoposter [LITE] for vBulletin

What the heck is this?

Posts to your forums automatically via the REAL usernames of by predefining the usernames, rss feeds and the forum ids. Do keep in mind we do have a full blown version of the EPC Autoposter Full Version for vBulletin where you can take complete control over the whole posting aspect more easily.

All in all, everyone was wondering after creating 10, 100, 1000's of users on their forums and not able to to post with these users? So we decided to release this LITE version to accompany our other hack which is stated below.

Key features:
  • Autoposter is easy to use!
  • Simply fill in a few fields and that's it!
  • If you use our EPC vBulletin Mass User Creator, this is your final solution to automated posting. Where you may post from anything that has a valid RSS Feed! So I guess the solution and to fill any void on your forums for using automated posting has come to an end for but we did create a full version of EPC Autoposter for vBulletin.
  • Your forums will appear much more active and alive, resulting in many more users, and many more users = many more sales = $$$!
  • Randomize the posting from an example 20 users, and 20 feeds, as this will assign everything randomly. Everything is totally random.
Complexity of Installation:

2 - Files to upload
1 - File edit
1 - Phrase added
1 - vBulletin CRON job
1 - Create an articles directory to store all articles.

Say perhaps 1 minute to 2 minutes max.

How do I get support:

Support is given to those who click INSTALL...

All support for the LITE version will be held here, and if you purchase the full version all support is handled in the order received by our full-time reps in the CSC, NO support is held here for the FULL version! No need for support actually as we have thoroughly ran it through the ringer in 48 hours, watching the forums fill up !

So here's the LITE version and it comes with a full set of instructions and if you require any assistance on how to find feeds and what places are best for feeds, do post them in here. Also if you post anything in here that has NOTHING to do with the hack and support related issues, i.e. Starting drama on how unethical it is and blah blah, keep your drama out please!

(Note: this thing can cripple a MySQL server if you are NOT careful, so if you post anything about how the server has gone away, please fix your MySQL my.cnf file to be more optimized. We will be happy to share our my.cnf optimization in the forums if any need help on it.)

Change Log

Version 2 ::

Gives support of rotating and posting articles automatically along with the ability to mix in with the RSS feeds. (Create an articles directory inside your forums root for this)

Ability to manage all feeds, from one location which is persisted to the Add Autoposter underneath the RSS Manager Section inside vBulletin. Meaning once you enter these values, come back to this screen, everything is managed in the Add Autoposter for simple use.

Never duplicates posts of text files, once posted it will not post no more.

When posting from articles do note: The name of the text file will be the
Threads Title.txt, or Threads-Title.txt. (So yes the supported file extension is txt)

Do keep in mind the below:

Thanks!! We have found feeds all over from using other forums syndicated feeds, yahoo feeds, dating site feeds, social networking site feeds, just insert a few feeds and watch the forums grow.

As everyone may or may not know, if you are filling the forums with content or your forums are dying down on posters, this is one solution. Because content = the key to Google and the rest of the engines.

Also, on the news feed ordeal the Owners agreed on setting up a deal for the FULL version, where they are throwing in a free tool to use when in need of feeds.

More flexibility indeed in the full version, so the more support we find off the full version by others purchasing it (measly $2.95), the more hacks we will place out here for free and do some serious upgrades to as well. Our tools and ideas are always "automated." It's the best way to run a business.

Best regards,
BTR

Great we will add you as a supporter as mentioned! Also, do note everything is pretty much automated on the full deal except for the licensing.

Edited:

Added you as a supporter and you should receive a welcome e-mail within 1 - 10 minutes.

Rest is up to the Customer Service Reps, do note that we do work 24/7/365 just so you know. Also, all orders are processed in the order received. Patience is a need at times.

So I can enter in a few usernames, and they will show up as the names posting the rss feeds?

How much different is this from the actual built in RSS feeds in vbulletin? I have never used it so im just curious.

Thanks.

No you enter more than just a few usernames:

You enter in a list of usernames
You enter in a list of feeds
You enter in a list of forum ids (in Full version you just use the multi-select)

You enter in "bulk" rather than one by one. Big difference when you got a 1 vs unlimited, so hope this answers your question on the difference since you "never used it." Unless you want to painstakingly add in massive one by one, but that's your preference and if you wanted to add in multiple as I stated above then the hack is for you. If it's not then you simply add one by one using the "default" vB RSS News Manager.

Looks interesting but not sure how this is better then the RSS feed poster that is already in vbulletin. The only thing I see that I think is possible in this one is that it can randomize the username you post with.

Not sure if you used them both to see how much more flexible it is here, we did forget to add the fact it'll randomize everything. As you can see within the RSS Feed poster where you have to manually enter one by one. Where our hack in the [LITE] will support the following:

1. Enter in Multiple users
2. Enter in Multiple feeds
3. Enter in Multiple forum ids

After you enter this, it'll add them randomly to the forums that you specified, can you do that in the RSS Feed poster? If you installed ours then you'll see why, because I don't see you downloaded it or installed it as of yet

Best regards,
BTR

Thank you for sharing. Marked installed.

I have found a list of interesting rss feeds on http://www.rss-verzeichnis.de/index.php?cat=62&feed=

But which URL do I have to use? Can you please make an example?

Thank you
