Aliases.png

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 has to start with "/".

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 (with a space at each side)
# 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 (i.e. $3- would take the third word and all following it)
$N-M replace with all words from N to M (i.e. $1-5 would take the first 5 words)
$+ suppress the space between words
$me Your current nickname
/say Say something on the current channel
$? NEW! causes a prompt asking for information, password, etc.


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

Examples

Match commands in examples are only suggestions. Users may put whatever they want. Some examples (e.g., /hug, /inform, /colors) can be tested in http://staging.mibbit.com/url/RV7Y9I (demo widget).

Hugs

This example contains helpful information that is not part of the other examples.

Match:

/hug

Command

/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 of this is the /multihug command:

Match:

/multihug

Command

/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!

Inform

Match:

/inform

Command

chr(2)chr(3)0,4 INFORM: chr(2)chr(3)1,0 $1-

( chr(2)=\u0002 bold toggle, chr(3)=\u0003 mIRC color prefix).

Usage:

/inform It's very cold out there

Output:

 INFORM:  It's very cold out there

Bans

Quiet Bans

A quiet ban is a type of ban that makes it so that the user can do anything except for speak.

Match:

/qb

Command

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

Usage:

Unreal Version:  /qb nickname!username@hostname

Output:

yourNick has banned q:nickname!username@hostname

Show bans

Match:

/sb

Command

/mode # +b

Usage:

/sb

Output:

The output is dynamic, but it shows any bans that are active.

Default Aliases

(notice:full client users must be logged-in)

Alias Name Command What It Does
/j /join $1- Smaller command to join channels
/cs /msg ChanServ $1- Message ChanServ with only two letters.
/ns /msg NickServ $1- Message NickServ with only two letters.
/bs /msg BotServ $1- Message BotServ with only two letters.
/ms /msg MemoServ $1- Message MemoServ with only two letters.
/os /msg OperServ $1- Message OperServ with only two letters.
/voice /mode # +v $1 Voice a user/nick
/devoice /mode # -v $1 Remove voice from a user/nick (/unvoice is the same)
/ban /mode # +b $1 Ban a user/hostmask (/ban<space> = show list with unban buttons)
/unban /mode # -b $1 Remove a ban from a user/hostmask (/deban is the same)
/op /mode # +o $1 Give operator status to a user/nick.
/deop /mode # -o $1 Remove operator status from a user/nick (/unop is the same)
/halfop /mode # +h $1 Give half-operator status to a user/nick.
/dehalfop /mode # -h $1 Remove half-operator status from a user/nick (/unhalfop is the same)
/admin /mode # +a $1 Give super-operator status to a user/nick (called Admin on Mibbit, use "/raw admin" for the ircd command)
/deadmin /mode # -a $1 Remove super-operator status from a user/nick (/unadmin is the same)
/owner /mode # +q $1 Give owner status to the user/nick
/deowner /mode # -q $1 Remove owner status from the user/nick (/unowner is the same)


If you made any changes to your prefs before these defaults were moved from the backend you have to add the defaults you are missing manually or (if your changes were only minor) do a "Reset all to defaults"

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.

Match:

/muvoice /mudevoice /muop /mdeop (ect.)

Command

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

Replace [+/-] with either a + or a - and [mode] with a mode of your choice, like v (voice), h (halfop), o (operator), a (super-op or admin), or e (exempt)

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

Usage:

/muvoice Havvy Molkmin Hercule

Output:

+++ yourNick has voiced Havvy
+++ yourNick has voiced Molkmin
+++ yourNick has voiced Hercule
