Aliases are user set commands that reference other commands so that they do not have to repeat themselves each time they want to use a specific line. As they are preferences, they can be set for widgets also.

How It Works

MATCH - This is the first word on the line, that we're matching against. It can start with / but doesn't have to.

COMMAND - This is what you want to do if the alias matches.

Bear in mind that the first match will trigger, so if you have duplicate matches, only the first will be used. The match is also case insensitive.

What you can have in COMMAND
| Separate multiple commands
# The current channel
$N (Where N is a number) - replace this with the Nth word from the input
$$N Same as above, but if there is no such word, only ignore this command, not the whole alias
$N- replace with all words from N onward
$N-M replace with all words from N to M
$+ suppress the space between words
$me Your current nickname
/say Say something on the current channel

You can have a .,!? after $me, and you can have a # before any of the $N commands.


  • [Alias examples]


/hug /me hugs $1 tightly.

Now if you write "/hug jenny", you'll see:

* yournick hugs jenny tightly.

You can use an alias you declared before it. An example is the /multihug command:

/multihug /say I need a hug :( | /hug $$1 | /hug $$2 | /hug $$3 | /say phew! That felt good. I'm glad I'm in # and not in #nohugs!

Now write "/multihug jenny cloe" you'll see:

mynick: I need a hug :( * mynick hugs jenny tightly. * mynick hugs cloe tightly. mynick: phew! That felt good. I'm glad I'm in #mychannel and not in #nohugs!

Quiet ban

Unreal Version

/qb /mode # +b ~q:*!*@ $+ $1

Freenode Version

/qb /mode # +q $1 $+ !*@*

usage: /qb <hostname on Unreal> <nick on Freenode> (prevents a user from talking)

example: /qb B3E473F8.3D842CF7.21EFBB6E.IP

(at least on and other servers that use unreal)

Multi-Mode Aliases

In Chatzilla, you can do /voice Nick1 Nick2 Nick3 Nick4 (ect) and they all become voiced. The alias showing is the closest to that.

Command: /mode # [+/-][mode] $1 | /mode # [+/-][mode] $$2 | /mode # [+/-][mode] $$3 | /mode # [+/-][mode] $$4

Replace [+/-] with plus or minus depending on if you want to add or remove the mode that you specify in [mode].

Some common examples are:

  • /mode # +v $1 | /mode # +v $$2 | /mode # +v $$3 | /mode # +v $$4
  • /mode # +o $1 | /mode # +o $$2 | /mode # +o $$3 | /mode # +o $$4
