In IRC, commands start with a forward slash ("/"), so when you want to use a forward slash as the first character of a non-command Message, you have to escape the forward slash. In the Mibbit client, this is done via the escape command:

{{#set:Client=Main}} {{#set:Client=Widget}}{{#set:Type=Parser}}// <text>

Sends text to IRC server, starting with forward slash without having the IRC server or Mibbit client treat as a command.

For example, if you wanted to send the message "/cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list", you would type in the input line the following:

//cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list
