InspIRCd v4 is still early in development!

If you use this branch you may experience crashes, weird behaviour, and unannounced breaking changes.

You probably want to use InspIRCd v3 instead.

The "setname" Module (v4)


This module adds the /SETNAME command which allows users to change their real name (gecos).


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

<module name="setname">


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

notifyopers Boolean Yes Whether to notify server operators when a user changes their real name.
operonly Boolean No Whether the /SETNAME command can only be used by server operators.
Example Usage
<setname notifyopers="yes"


Name Parameter Count Syntax Description
SETNAME 1 <realname> Changes the real name (gecos) of the user to <realname>.

Example Usage

/SETNAME :Wibble Wobble
