[REQUEST] Permanent channels

Post by jevexejur » Thu Feb 28, 2019 8:14 am

InspIRCd has this and it's really helpful for networks that have no need to run services.

Example configuration block:

Code: Select all

channels {
    channel {
        name "#chat";
        modes "+Pnt";
        topic "Welcome to chat!";
    };
    channel {
        name "#help";
        modes "+Pnt";
        topic "Welcome to help!";
    };
};

Well there is the Official Channels Block in the core of unrealircd:
https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Official-channels_block

official-channels {
"#channel" { topic "The default topic"; };
};

I guess that could be modified slightly to add "modes" to the channel on creation perhaps

"Official channels" are nothing like permanent channels in, for example, InspIRCd.

"Official channels" just shows the channels in /list, it doesn't actually create the channels on start up.

It should be mentioned that UnrealIRCd 5 has permanent channels. Just get on IRC (as an IRCOp) and set the channel mode +P. Then it will remember the channel, the topic, the modes, the bans/exempts/invexes... it will store these in a database.
Works even better than via configuration file, much easier to change things.
