Sorry for being an antfucker here, but why were some help topic names like 'if-then-else' removed?

I used to do /help if-then-else, the if-then-else help would popup and I'd be happy, but now I need to do something else, like /help /if, my life is complete no more.. confused

In this case it actually makes sense as the term "then" is not used in mIRC scripting. Even though you could still call it a if-then-else, it's not exactly correct.

Yeah well seeing as how, again, many tutorials will say type /help if-then-else for the sake of consistency, it should still be there. I agree it's not the best choice of words, but have you ever seen someone come here saying, I tried:
if ($1 isnum) then {
.....
}

I've never seen anyone confused by it before. Just seems like there really wasn't any reason to remove it.

The if-then-else help is still there. You just need to type /help /if

I hope this helps.

He already said he'd have to do that, if you had read..
WatchMinister, why don't you do something like:
Code:
alias help {
  if ($1 == if-then-else) { help /if }
  if ($1-) { help $1- }
  if (!$1-) { help }
}

Just a suggestion. smile
