URL

Purpose

Keeps track of URLs posted to a channel, along with relevant context. Allows searching for URLs and returning random URLs. Also provides statistics on the URLs in the database.

Usage

This plugin records how many URLs have been mentioned in a channel and what the last URL was.

Commands

last [<channel>] [–{from,with,without,near,proto} <value>] [–nolimit]
Gives the last URL matching the given criteria. –from is from whom the URL came; –proto is the protocol the URL used; –with is something inside the URL; –without is something that should not be in the URL; –near is something in the same message as the URL. If –nolimit is given, returns all the URLs that are found to just the URL. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
stats [<channel>]
Returns the number of URLs in the URL database. <channel> is only required if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
