Configuration

supybot.plugins.Topic.allowSeparatorinTopics

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will allow topics containing the defined separator to be used. You may want to disable this if you are signing all topics by nick (see the ‘format’ option for ways to adjust this).

supybot.plugins.Topic.alwaysSetOnJoin

This config variable defaults to “False”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will set the topic every time it joins, or only if the topic is empty. Requires ‘config plugins.topic.setOnJoin’ to be set to True.

supybot.plugins.Topic.default

This config variable defaults to “”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines what the default topic for the channel is. This is used by the default command to set this topic.

supybot.plugins.Topic.format

This config variable defaults to “$topic”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines what format is used to add topics in the topic. All the standard substitutes apply, in addition to “$topic” for the topic itself.

supybot.plugins.Topic.public

This config variable defaults to “True”, is not network-specific, and is not channel-specific.

Determines whether this plugin is publicly visible.

supybot.plugins.Topic.recognizeTopiclen

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will recognize the TOPICLEN value sent to it by the server and thus refuse to send TOPICs longer than the TOPICLEN. These topics are likely to be truncated by the server anyway, so this defaults to True.

supybot.plugins.Topic.requireManageCapability

This config variable defaults to “channel,op; channel,halfop”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines the capabilities required (if any) to make any topic changes, (everything except for read-only operations). Use ‘channel,capab’ for channel-level capabilities. Note that absence of an explicit anticapability means user has capability.

supybot.plugins.Topic.separator

This config variable defaults to ” | “, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines what separator is used between individually added topics in the channel topic.

supybot.plugins.Topic.setOnJoin

This config variable defaults to “True”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines whether the bot will automatically set the topic on join if it is empty.

supybot.plugins.Topic.undo

This is a group of:

supybot.plugins.Topic.undo.max

This config variable defaults to “10”, is network-specific, and is channel-specific.

Determines the number of previous topics to keep around in case the undo command is called.
