From the makers of InspIRCd.
permchannels module (2.0 version)
| Adds permanent channels.
| You can optionally add a configuration parameter to this module to create certain channels on startup:
<permchannels channel="#opers" modes="is" topic="Opers only.">
'channel' is the channel you want to create, 'modes' is the modes you want the ircd to set on that channel when it is created (even oper-only modes), 'topic' is what you want the ircd to set the topic to.
Extended Bans (Extbans)
| This module implements no extended bans.
| This module adds no extra commands.
| Only opers with the channels/set-permanent privilege in their oper class can set channels as +P.
Channels with the permanent channels mode will remain open even after everyone else has left the channel, and therefore keep things like modes, ban lists and topic. Permanent channels -may- need support from your Services package to function properly with them.
