Create Vanilla Forum Discussions Programmatically

edited October 2016 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I need to create vanilla forum discussions programmatically.

I have a php script which can create "title", "description" and category. Now I need a function to create discussions Programmatically.

Is it possible with Vanilla Forum?

Note 1: It is possible with WordPress using wp_insert_post() function.

  • Yes it's possible!

    $DiscussionModel = new DiscussionModel();
    $DiscussionModel->SpamCheck = FALSE;
    
    $DiscussionData = array(
        'Name' => $StoryTitle,
        'Body' => $StoryBody,
        'CategoryID' => $CategoryID,
        'Format' => $Format,
        'DateInserted' => Gdn_Format::toDateTime($Timestamp),
        'InsertUserID' => $UserID,
        'UpdateCategoryID' => $CategoryID,
        'DateUpdated' => Gdn_Format::toDateTime($Timestamp),
        'UpdateUserID' => $UserID
    );
    $InsertID = $DiscussionModel->Save($DiscussionData);
    $DiscussionModel->Validation->Results(TRUE);

    Thanks for your answer. I need to do this type of lots of thing. Is there any documentation to find something like this?

    There is no specific documentation for that. But take a look at this plugin: https://vanillaforums.org/addon/datagenerator-plugin

    It should be a good guide.
