NPC Profiles v1.2.5

By Brian  //  Overall Rating stars 28 Votes
Primary Image
Allows you to post under an alternate NPC alias and change any posts on your forum by any user to NPC character account posts at any given time. Great for roleplay forums where two or more members of the forum's staff need access to a single non-player character.

Uses 1 Post Key.

=== Features ===
- Disguises posts as NPC posts
- NPC selection dropdown in post controls in thread and posting page
- NPC auto-select button in the PBN bar
- Replaces display names on board and thread list with NPC names wherever applicable
- NPC tagging (replaces display name in a regular tag with NPC name)
- Member list for NPCs
- Customizable base mini-profile for NPCs
- Customizable view profile page for NPCs



=== How to Use ===
First, go to the plugin's settings page and view the "Permissions" tab. Choose which groups on your forum will have permission to use the plugin. You can change the settings in the rest of the sections in this tab and in the Appearance and Profile HTML tabs, but they're completely optional.

Next, go to the "NPC List" tab. Add an NPC by providing it a Display Name, a unique Username, and specifying which groups have access to it. All other fields are optional and filling them out is entirely up to you. You can add as many NPCs as you like during this step.

Once you've set up your NPCs and permissions you should be able to click on the sword icon on the posting page to choose which NPC to post with. You can also assign NPCs to existing posts the same way. Lastly, the sword icon in the PBN bar on the bottom right of the forum will allow you to automatically select an NPC when posting so you don't have to select it from the dropdown each time.

5/5 Works great for RP based Forums. Helped out our forum alot with more immersion. But If it could be updated to remove the "Posted by" at the bottom it would be 6/5

Awesome! I love making Christmas side quests from NPC's for my members to play. For example, Santa has lost all of his Christmas presents, and he needs you to find them all throughout the forums.

Plugin has been completely rewritten for v1.1.0. If you're having trouble getting this plugin to work with a heavily customized theme or your NPCs are no longer showing in the thread list please visit the support thread linked in the description and contact me if the instructions in the opening posts do not resolve your issue. Thank you!

I love this plugin ^^ However, I do wish the "posted by user" thing could be hidden. I also wish this plugin allowed the setting to specify not just groups, but users.

Great, made mine a newsletter bot!

Really good, but one problem is that it isnt really a NPC, btw, i think it would also be good to add this "feature" to shoutbox! Suggestion: a option to Disable or Enable "Posted by [user]" and change "liked by [ur name]" to liked by [npc name]
