Herald

Purpose

Greets users who join the channel with a recognized hostmask with a nice little greeting.

Usage

This plugin allows you to set welcome messages (heralds) to people who are recognized by the bot when they join a channel.

Commands

add [<channel>] <user|nick> <msg>
Sets the herald message for <user> (or the user <nick|hostmask> is currently identified or recognized as) to <msg>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
change [<channel>] [<user|nick>] <regexp>
Changes the herald message for <user>, or the user <nick|hostmask> is currently identified or recognized as, according to <regexp>. If <user> is not given, defaults to the calling user. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
default [<channel>] [–remove|<msg>]
If <msg> is given, sets the default herald to <msg>. A <msg> of “” will remove the default herald. If <msg> is not given, returns the current default herald. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
get [<channel>] [<user|nick>]
Returns the current herald message for <user> (or the user <nick|hostmask> is currently identified or recognized as). If <user> is not given, defaults to the user giving the command. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
remove [<channel>] [<user|nick>]
Removes the herald message set for <user>, or the user <nick|hostmask> is currently identified or recognized as. If <user> is not given, defaults to the user giving the command. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
