Re: How to make a forum bot
there would be two ways to do this.
the first way is to make a forum crawler, like a search bot, that'd look at the contents of a thread, (probably just the last post).
then it'd look at the form for reply of quick reply.
the form will have a declaration like <form name="reply" action="reply.php" method="post">
then you bot uses this to know where to post a reply to, it invents a reply and posts it.
a much easier way would be to ave a program scan the database and create replies to threads in the database, though you have to have access to it first.
but if it was yur own forum on your own hosting this wouldn't be a problem, and would make the place seem a lot more populated.
