    Hi there…

    I just created a Basic Room and it was really easy 🙂 I wanted to make it so I could be Auto-Opped when I enter and have more control over the room. I went through the steps from the FAQ “How do I take control of my room?” and got as far as the part where I AOP’ed myself.

    I exited the room and re-entered to see if it would work – and it doesn’t. What’s worse is that before the first person to enter the room would be Op’ed – now NOBODY gets op’ed!

    All I want is to enter the room, have ops and be able to moderate the room. What am I doing wrong???

    My URL is http://www.johnedwardaustralia.com/chat.htm

    Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

    I pulled this from a post that already existed. Some of it pertains to you and some you have already accomplished. Hope it helps.

    =========================================================================

    Anyone that enters a chat room first gets the @’s next to their nick signifying that they are the room’s operator. To avoid this you need to register the room with chanserv. Example: If your room’s name is MyRoom and your nickname is MyNick and you use the made up password of MyPass and the description of your room is This is My Room you would first type this:

    /nickserv register MyNick MyPass

    Then if you are the first in your room and you have the @’s next to your nickname you can type this to register the room:

    /chanserv register #MyRoom MyPass This is My Room

    Now your room is registered. Next time you enter you will not be given automatic @’s because it is registered. You will need to type this:

    /nickserv identify MyPass

    /chanserv op

    Ok now before you can give friends access to your room they need to register their nicknames with nickserv using the /nickserv register MyNick MyPass method described above. Once they have done that you can add them to your room’s access (aop list) by typing this:

    /chanserv aop #MyRoom add FriendsNick

    Now when they enter your room they need to do the same thing you have to do to get @’s. They need to type:

    /nickserv identify TheirPass

    /chanserv op

    Ok that’s about all I can think of at the moment. Have a look at the Chat Room FAQ section and also check out the Epona section to look over ChanServ, NickServ, BotServ and MemoServ information and commands.

    Thanks Dave! I think the /chanserv op is the only part that was missing – I had done everything else. Still can’t work out why the Bot won’t auto-op me but that’s cool – I don’t mind doing it manually.

    The main thing is that I still want anyone at all to turn up to chat and that seems to still be working. My site has quite a lot of computer newbies so I have to make it as simple as possible. Typing in a username and clicking “Chat Now!” is about as much as I’m willing to trust them with, though I’m sure some of the more advanced users will learn to register their name.

    Thanks for your help! It’s been great!

    You need to use the advanced code so you can specify your password so that your auto opped when you enter your room. Otherwise you are unknown untill after you have identified.

    Yes I read about that but when I made the advanced code it didn’t work correctly – it kept saying “error on page” so I decided to let it be for now 🙂 I cut and paste it exactly like I did the other code – but it just doesn’t want to work for me. I tried it several times, no luck.

    Of course – if you can help at all and tell me why that Error on Page comes up I would be thrilled to bits hehe 🙂

    hmmmm… I noticed that earlier today but forgot…

    perhaps the page is broke… I’ll check it out…

    Strange that it would be since I haven’t touched it in a long long time… lol

    The page seems to work now… must have just been a browser thing…

    I just tried again to implement the advanced interface and I MUST be doing something wrong 🙁

    I have created it, cut and paste it into my HTML exactly as I did for the original Basic chat login, but it won’t work.

    Perhaps you would be so kind as to assist me by having a look?

    The one that is working fine (but not allowing me to login with password so I have auto op status) is found at http://www.johnedwardaustralia.com/chat.htm

    The one I am trying to GET to work is the same page just copied over to http://www.johnedwardaustralia.com/chatnew.htm with the new code added in.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated 🙂

    Thanking you…

    Hi Schylaar,

    I just went to your page and got into the first one..the basic chat. Did you remember to IDENTIFY yourself?

    /nickserv IDENTIFY password ?

    Then you should beable to be opped

    I could not that your secondone to work at all. If you put 2 codes in at once, it will not work. Right now the best thing I can say, (since I don’t work with the coding) is for you to try the IDENTIFY on the basic.

    If you want the advance, I say, deleate the second one, and go and make a new advanced one. Copy and paste it just like it says too..Remember to FOLLOW all directions while making it.

    Good luck and I hope maybe something will help. If not, Dave will help you more!!!

    Yep I can identify etc on the Basic – that’s not a problem for me to go that way.

    But I would like to get the advanced system working for my web site members so that a few can be opped, but not have to learn to many commands. So while the Basic IS working fine for me right now – I need to get the Advanced one working for the future.

    The second one I did just the same as the first – just cut and paste into my web page template. I have done it a few times, and also into a plain new HTML page with no background or tables etc. Still won’t work. I followed all the directions as I did with the Basic…

    Maybe Dave can check out the code and let me know? I’d really appreciate it 🙂

    See here’s a plain one – nothing but a New Page created with Frontpage with the code inserted.

    Change your room name in the advanced code from #johnedward to just johnedward and it will work.
