This would require that the bot itself is a Network Administrator, or something like that. That is: it would have the privilege of being able to force a user into a channel.

Also, beware. You can possibly irritate a user, by forcing them to join a channel.

If the bot is such, then I think it would be possible to do a script like this. It might not be easy for the scripter to test it though, not without having such a bot to test it on.

In the meantime, here is an idea to consider :

Check out this script:
http://tclarchive.org/search.php?str=ho ... 7&sub.y=13

All it does, is read the text of a file that you type up, to the channel, on command.
Since it is reading a plain text file, that makes it very easy to change the text to be displayed.
Just put in the file something like:
Hello. Please join #someChanName and post your question there. That's the channel for help.
or whatever message that you wish to convey to the user that did !help .

I've used this file over the years, for this very purpose. :)

It's a simple script. If you need to edit it for some tweak that you might like, it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.

I hope this helps.

i added a check if nick is already on the support channel or not for this to work the eggdrop has to be on the support channel as well to check if the nick who requested help is already sajoined there

Code: Select all

bind pub -|- !help Pub:Sajoin:SupportChan

proc Pub:Sajoin:SupportChan {nick host hand chan text} {

  set text [regsub -all -- {\s{2,}} [string trim [stripcodes * $text]] { }] 

  set SupChan #SupChan

  if {![onchan $nick $SupChan]} { putnow "SAJOIN $nick $SupChan" }
}

Code: Select all

set helpchan "#help"
bind pub -|- "!help" sapubhelp
proc sapubhelp {nick uhost handle chan text} {
   if {![string match -nocase $chan $::helpchan] && ![onchan $nick $::helpchan]} {
      putserv "SAJOIN $nick $::helpchan"
   }
}
Just change #help to feat your desired hel channel.

I made a double verification (just for example) : the channel where the comman is typed must not be the destination chan and the user must not be on the chan.

No, the regsub works on the text after the command, and $text is not used anywhere.
If someone typs "!help i'm in trouble", $text contains "i'm in trouble".

But if someone uses color before !help, the bind won't work.

i guess your right CrazyCat altho ive tested the command with colors in front of it and it recognized it fine and i didnt load a color stripper script as i made sure thats unloaded first unless im mistaken but so far it seems bind pub can be used with color codes as well
