Populating Development Forum with "Dummy" Data

    I'm in the process of setting up a XenForo install for development. Of course, it's going to be lacking user content, and it's going to take some time for me to setup a few accounts and post a bunch of Lorem Ipsum text to work with.

    Are there any shortcuts here to populate a test site with "dummy", filler data automatically?

    I setup a few RSS feeds, then set my discussion lists/messages to 5/10 to shorten the pages and increase the page nav.

    Not really.

    It's just a case of creating dummy accounts and creating threads and posts.

    Probably we should have an addon which populates the DB with random data for speeding up the process of creating a dummy platform
