How do I use in-channel commands?

By default, when ChanServ is in your channel it will respond to specific commands prefixed with a ` (backtick). Most of the ChanServ commands are available via this mechanism.

They can be triggered with:

`command [criteria]

In the [criteria] field you include the normal syntax you'd type in a /msg ChanServ command with the exception of the channel name.

Exceptions exist for security reasons on the DROP and SET PASSWORD.

Common Examples

`op nickname
`ban nickname
`setuser nickname
`infoline Infoline text here
`adduser nickname 100
`set url http://darkmyst.org

Modifying Behavior

Enable/Disable in-channel commands with:

/msg ChanServ SET #channel CHANCMDS (on|off)
e.g. /msg ChanServ SET #channel CHANCMDS off

Change the prefix with (this example changes the command prefix to !):

/msg ChanServ SET #channel CMDPREFIX <prefix>
e.g. /msg ChanServ SET #channel CMDPREFIX !
