2. Information : name of software, used version, contacts.

3. Graphic logo. It can be hide from advanced option.

4. Available updates.

5. TO CHECK THE DEMO VERSION: send a message to a single forum/guestbook/blog etc. In the text box you can specify URL (link) and send default message by clicking Test. If the monitoring option has been set (see Advanced options) then you will be able to see the process of posting in detail at the top of the window. The results are located in the Reports tab. Also in this mode, a detailed report is stored in Debug folder.

6. Status bar. Here you see what the program is currently doing.

S - posting
M - downloading activation links from email box
P - updating proxies

7. The list of current threads. Here you can see the links that the program is currently using.

8. Chose of posting mode: usual Posting or Mass-PM

9. Posting management:

  Start – sets the process to start from the beginning of the selected database. The number of the position is reset, also old reports are deleted (if it's enabled appropriate option in advanced option).
  Resume from the last position – continues the process from last position where was stopped.
  Stop – Stops the launching of new threads. The threads that have already started will continue until they finish.

10. Program settings tabs:

Links database – in this tab are selected the database to forums/guestbooks/blogs etc. and posting mode.  Links databases is a text file, located in Links folder and have the following format: LinksList id*.txt, where * is its ID (database's number).

Before starting a new project, make sure that database is set to LinksList, and NOT to MLinksList or ZLinksList, etc.

  Reports – detailed reports on current processes.
  Mail – Used to download the activation links from the e-mail inbox. It is recommended to create the address solely for posting purpose. Login and password to this e-mail are set in the project file.
  Anonymity – proxy-server usage settings.
  Multi-threading settings – here you can select number of threads to run. As higher will be the maximum number of concurrent threads – the faster will be the speed (the amount of threads should correspond to bandwidth of your Internet – connection). At connection of 1Mb/sec (without proxy) it is recommended to use 15 treads and at 4 Mb/sec use 60-70 treads. Periodicity – 10...1000 (it is recommended to not change). It makes sense to change this parameter only if you want to reduce posting speed.

If in email box will be more than 500 letters waiting for activation, Xrumer automatically will reduce TEMPORARILY the number of treads to 5. This number of treads will be maintained until all letters of activation will be downloaded. After all letters will be downloaded, number of treads will be restored. (see background activation option)

11. Same commands as in the Project menu.

Full address – full email address of a format login@site.com
Password – the password to this email
Login – the login name
POP-server address - for uploading letters under the POP-report, it is necessary to find out the address on mail server. For example: on mail.ru the mail server address - pop.mail.ru

Note: if you'll use a nonstandard POP mail service then you should enter POP address in xpop.txt file, in field [PORT].

Below these fields are button for automatic email registration on mail.ru, cashette.com, gawab.com, web.de.

Before starting a new posting; check through a browser (Internet Explorer or other), that:

email address specified in the project, is available on the specified data
there is an opportunity of downloading letters under the POP3-report
this email is not used before in previous posting

3. Contents of posting messages:

Topic – the message subject. It is recommended the message subject contain 3-4 words at least
Explanation – in this field is the explanatory information to message subject. This field is required on some forums (IPB, etc.)
Message text – the text of posting messages can contain links, macros and the other information

4. To create polling (Poll) - an option for creation of polls with variants of answers at forums. It is forbidden to use links in these fields. Do not confuse with Question – answer system.

5. Thematically targeting:

Priority categories - the list of priority categories which consist from a list of words which should contain inside of forum sections where the program should post the message (will not work with ZLinksList, RLinksList and ELinksList).

The example:
It is necessary to post message on subject such as Real estate.

For this purpose follow these steps:

1.Click Load defaults

2.Type at the top of the default list words that are relevant to your subject (the register of letters makes no difference):

  The real estate
  To lease
  To rent

Therefore, the program will post the message in those sections of forums, which correspond to the needed subjects. If any of the listed topic words are not found in the forum, then XRumer will post to the default topic, such as Offtopic, Flame, Flood, Advertising, etc. If those topics are not found, then it will post on the most visited topics.

6. Preview in browser
By clicking the Test button you will see how your message will be on forums (the forum type can be chosen from 4 most prevalent variants - phpBB, Invision Power Board, vBulletin, YaBB).


How to start working with XRumer

How to start working with XRumer

- Open the menu Settings → Proxy-checking settings
- In the field Checker script address choose Use own address and enter the full address to the script. Use the browser to make sure you typed the address correctly and the script is placed properly on the site.


How to send responses to the themes of other users through XRumer

Advanced users know that Xrumer can post replies in earlier created topics (Question –Answer system). But, only, in those topics that were created by Xrumer (see help file “Database type>RLinksList”). To post replies in topics of other users was problematic. Now such option is available – using additional program rgen.exe

What for is needed this option?

  • To send replies in topics with your theme, to maintain an existing dialog. Such topics can be gathered with Hrefer, by setting it up correctly.
  • To send replies to multiple topics from one forum (if you know for sure, that this forum is not moderated) or to many forums.
  • To increase your RLinksList database by converting Success report in additional RLinksList.

How it’s working?
Using additional program rgen.exe (download it here) you can convert database with links to topics (that mean in links of ANSWER to topics) – in RLinkslist database.

Screen of program:

XRumer lesson image

Src.file – source file with links to topics (gathered with Hrefer or use report Success id*.txt – “Successful”)
Dest.file – resulting file, there will be placed links of answer in these topics RLinksList id*.txt

If the option “Place to the dest.file only converted links” enable, then in resulting file will be placed ONLY converted links.
The option “Filter doubles by topic ID: select last topic on identical forums” will filter duplicates of topics and will save only links to last topics on identical forums. This option will be helpful if you had gathered database without filtering by duplicates.

Example of usage:

At the present, the program convert links like:

That mean program works with most popular forum engines: phpBB (different versions) VBulletin, IPB (but not in all cases), UltimateBB, YaBB and some other. This program will NOT work on guestbooks, boards, catalogues.
