About / History

wpbot is a JiBot and is based off of the svn code provided to me by termie on #wordpress. wpbot came about to replace _infobot which was killed off by infowolfe following abuse.

Originally there was another JiBot called pressbot run by Matt who also ran another bot called wpbot.

I have extended the base JiBot with a few commands - most notably $codex which is based off the JiBot $wiki command and searches the codex.

Commands

All commands to wpbot work with either ? or $ as the command character e.g. $help or ?help.

Help

Sending $help/?help to wpbot in a PM will get you the following incomplete help.
