The "cban" Module (v3)


This module adds the /CBAN command which allows server operators to prevent channels matching a glob from being created.


To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="cban">


The <cban> tag defines settings about how the cban module should behave. This tag can only be defined once.

Name Type Default Value Description
glob Boolean No New in v3.8.0! Whether to use glob matching instead of case-insensitive string matching.
Example Usage
<cban glob="yes">


Name Parameter Count Syntax Description
CBAN 1-3 <channel> [<duration> [<reason>]] Allows server operators to add and remove channel bans.

Example Usage

Bans the #example channel for one week:

/CBAN #example 7d :This channel is banned for a week

Bans channels that match the glob #example* forever:

/CBAN #example* 0 :This channel is banned forever

Unbans the #example channel:

/CBAN #example


Character Description
C Lists all channel bans.

Special Notes

CBANs are expired lazily when a lookup happens for performance reasons. This means that expiry messages may display later than expected.
