#magento IRC FAQ

MagePie is the FAQ Bot (=Program) on #magento.
She can answer simple FAQ‘s if queried correctly.
On this page I would like to post the contents of the faq database as a working base.

Bot Syntax

Simply type one of the following commands in the #magento channel.

?faq-help Display basic commands to access the faq database
? keyword Query the faq database for keyword (note the space between the ? and the keyword!)
?faq nick keyword Query for keyword and send the results to nick

Authorized FAQ managers can also use the following commands:

?addword keyword|Fact Add the fact to the faq database under keyword (;; for newline, max 2 lines possible)
?modify keyword|Fact Change the fact connected with keyword (;; for newline, max 2 lines possible)
?delword keyword Remove keyword from the faq database
?close-faq Close the faq database. No one will be able to query it
?open-faq Re-Open the faq database if it is closed

FAQ
