Generates test users for your Elgg installation.

Last updated

This plugin generates test users for your Elgg installation. Depending on options provided by the administrator, generated users will have custom profile icons, friend relationships, messages sent to each others, blogs, uploaded contents, and comments on blog entries and uploaded content.

This plugin should never, under any circumstances, be used on a live site already having real users and an active community. If anything goes wrong during user generation, there can – and probably will – be inconsistencies in the Elgg database (not to mention that you probably don’t want fake users to be mixed with your real ones in a single installation). Worst case scenario, you might have to drop the whole database and install a new, empty Elgg database from scratch. You’ve been warned.

Before enabling and using this plugin on your site, please please please read the enclosed manual (docs/manual.pdf).  Especially the "Warnings" and the "Direct database manipulation" sections.

Any questions that have not been answered in the manual are welcome.
