This plugin for WCF 2 allows you to monitor a variety of events in the community and to execute various actions with or without reference to those events. Actions can be executed time-controlled and with configurable repetition frequency.
- Supported Versions:
- Burning Board 4.0 / WCF 2.0
Events / actions can be combined almost freely with avaible kinds of notification.
UZ Community Bot maybe extended with additional features by optional packages. Burning Board-, voolia News-, Woltlab Blog- and feedreader functions are already included.
Furthermore, it replaces plugins like Welcome Notification or Birthday Notification.
Presently, the following notification types are available:
- comment (wall),
- conversation (individual),
- post (WBB),
- thread (WBB),
- news (voolia),
- blog entry.
The texts may be composed with numerous placeholders like those for names, links, counters, dates and times. User-related notifications can be sent to any recipient. You may choose user groups, single receivers and/or users, who triggered an event.

Essential configuration hints are summarized on the online help page.
Basic configuration is done in ACP - System - Options - UZ Community Bot, where you essentially can activate/deactivate the monitoring functions.
Single bots are configured in ACP - Community - UZ Community Bot. Only those bots are available, which match the functions activated in Options. Dependent on the choosen actions / events you have to make different inputs; see description texts.
All bots are continuously monitored and will be deactivated, if changes may lead to errors (e.g. a forum for a notification was deleted). So, if a bot is not working, please check in ACP whether or not it is still active.
