Add-On Information
Google Perspective API is the next generation AI tool for automated content moderation and quality control.

Google Perspective API is still in beta and you need to request API access to use the add-on. Please visit for more information

This add-on integrates XenForo and Google Perspective API. The key features you get with the integration are:

  1. Independently configurable scores to check posts for Toxicity, Spam, Obscene language.
  2. Live feedback if the user passes a pre-configured threshold, highlighting the parts of the message that are detected to pass the threshold (configurable).
  3. Automatically moderate the post if it has a higher score than a pre-defined value.
  4. Moderators and users with permission get a link in each post to validate the post via API and see the results of validation in a popup. They can mark the post as moderated right from the popup window.
  5. Support Quick Reply and Full Editor
  6. Log of all failed API requests with full associated information can be found under Admin Panel -> Tools -> Logs -> Perspective API Log
  7. Slider to hide posts based on their toxicity/spam score, configurable in Admin Panel. Hidden posts are shown faded and smaller, and users can still see the post if they are interested by clicking on it
  8. Integration of post scores in post/thread moderation list
  9. Auto-moderation of all posts/threads based on current criteria configured in Admin Panel. Available as a new section under Tools -> Rebuild Caches page
To avoid many API requests you can configure the addon to do the checks in larger time intervals. The interval is 5 seconds by default, which means users see the results of validation every 5 seconds. Increasing this interval will cause more requests to your server and to Google API as users type their posts.

The add-on comes with local database-based cache, that decreases the number of requests to Google servers. Cache lifetime is configurable, larger values will mean more effective use of cache, but the table containing the data may grow bigger.

Please note, that the API is still in beta stage, with some scores marked as Experimental. The add-on does not in any way implement the AI engine and is not responsible for the results of the check. The results are provided by Google Perspective API.

Add-on costs $19.99 USD that includes one year of support and updates with permanent access to product versions released in license validity period. Yearly extension costs $10.00 USD The add-on has a visible branding with a link to our website which can be removed for additional $10.00 USD payment.
