This seems simple enough, but I've never been able to figure out how to do this without using the Channel Central dialogue.

How do you unset a channel's topic with the /topic command itself?

I've tried everything from "/topic #channelname" to "//topic #channelname $null", but there doesn't seem to be any way ... and no information in the help file.

I don't think you can do that using the /topic command, or at least I wasn't able to find a way to do it.

The quickest method would be /topic # Ctrl-O

Granted, it's not *really* unset. But it may be your best option. You can use any ctrl character if you want, but if you use something other than Ctrl-O, then you could run into an issue if you did something like:

//echo -a $chan(#channel).topic is the topic

If you had Ctrl-B, you'd have bold text, just as an example.

If there is a real way to unset the topic, I don't know of it.

Try "/raw TOPIC #chan :"

Hope that helps smile
