An entry message is a message that is noticed by Chanserv or Bot when the user joins the room. For an example, if the entry message is "Welcome to #treeFrogs", they will see
<chanserv> Welcome to #treeFrogs
If you have a Services Bot assigned to your channel, then the message will be from the Services Bot
<Bot> Welcome to #treeFrogs
Setting/Removing an Entry Message
Entry Messages for a channel can be added with the command
/cs entrymsg #yourChannel ADD Entry message for joining users .
If you want to remove all entry messages, use /cs entrymsg #yourChannel CLEAR
If you want to remove a single entry message from the /cs entrymsg #yourChannel list, use /cs entrymsg #yourChannel DEL <number>.
When an entry message is successfully changed, chanserv will tell you one of the following statements:
- Entry message added to #yourChannel
- Entry message X for #yourChannel deleted
- Entry messages for #yourChannel have been cleared.
