Description

Conversation Auto Responder (previously MessageAutoReplies) is a XenForo add-on which allows users to configure an auto-response message which is sent as an automatic response to incoming conversations. Access to set a message can be restricted with a permission node - ideal for only allowing staff to use the feature, for example.

The message supports the full range of BBCode tags available in normal conversations and can make use of variables which are replaced at send-time. For example, a message could contain a greeting to {username} and this would be replaced with the username of the user initiating the conversation.

Potential uses include "out of office" replies for when staff are temporarily unavailable, information on where users can get support etc. Add-on developers can very easily create a code event listener and expand the supported message variables to fit their needs.

Installation

As with most other XenForo add-ons, installation consists of uploading the contents of the "upload" directory into the XenForo root directory before using the form in the admin control panel and uploading the XML descriptor file.

System requirements

Requires PHP 5.4, 5.6 preferred. Tested with XenForo 1.4.6 and above, though should work fine with similar earlier versions of XenForo.
