IRC /say command does not work

Reported by: tmoore Owned by: zacw
Milestone: Adium 1.4.1 Component: Service/IRC
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:
Patch Status:



The IRC /say command does not seem to work in Adium 1.4b17. This is useful for sending messages to an IRC channel that start with a / character (which would otherwise be interpreted as commands).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set up an IRC account (this is reproducible on, for example)
  2. Join any channel
  3. Enter "/say anything"

Expected results

It should send the message "anything" to the channel.

Actual results

Adium displays an error box:

Adium Notice: Unknown message

Unknown message 'say'

The IRC server received a message it did not understand.


I've only tried this with Adium 1.4b17 on Mac OS 10.5.8


The error makes it sound like a server issue, however I've had other people in the same channel using different clients, including Colloquy and Pidgin, report that it works for them.

I have tested this out on adium 1.4b18 and Mac OS 10.6.4 and the error still occurs to for me. This works for me on Colloquy perfectly.

This works in Pidgin but not for us? I wonder how they implement it.

/say is not actually a command for IRC. It's common on most clients to support it. This is _not_ a bug.
