official channels block not showing any channels in list

Post by jvezinat » Wed Oct 21, 2020 4:13 pm

All,

Anyone have any idea how to create a list of pre-defined channels? I followed the documentation in "https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Configu ... nels_block" without any channels being shown on the channel list. The server is an air-gapped server and does not have access to outside lists etc. I would like to just have some pre-defined channels that users see when they connect? Any help would be appreciated as i though this would be easy to do...................................

Use the +P channelmode instead as official-channels feature is planned to be removed anyway.
BTW, check the ircd.log file, as there should be a warning about this on every rehash. Maybe the configuration is not being read correctly for some reason?
* *** [warning] set::oficial-channels is deprecated. It often does not do what you want. You're better of creating a channel, setting all modes, topic, etc. to your liking and then making the channel permanent (MODE #channel +P). The channel will then be stored in a database to preserve it between restarts.

As was suggested check the log for errors. Also perhaps there is a restrict on /list in place where it is going to give no channeel lists for the first X seconds after connecting (usually 60).

Also next time try to wait more than 8 minutes before you say something is garbage when it is most likely YOU who did not get it right or does not understand which restriictions might be legitmitally stopping it ;)
