Maybe you can put the year when the topic is set too.

I think it's the server which gives mIRC (the client) the information about the date on which the topic was set. Therefore, it is beyond the control of Khaled to display the info - mIRC can only display what it's given.

What's more, it's a rarity for a topic to be set for more than a year which is most likely why the developers of the network's IRCd choose not to display a year. However, check out the network's website and see if you can contact the coders team (if there is one) or whoever develops the IRCd and see if that info can be displayed.

The topic timestamp is provided as a CTime seconds value, so mIRC could display the year it was set. However as you said it's incredibly unlikely that a topic would ever be set that long, let alone that anyone would care which year it was set even if it were.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

More to the point, has there ever been a room where the topic was set a over a year before?

A long time ago, I did see a chatroom where the topic was set about 8 months prior to my visit. Does that count? LOL Don't ask me where I saw that one as I was browsing networks but that was probably over a year ago... smile

I set one last November which still exists. It's like that song - some things change and some stay the same.

I guess mIRC could display the year if it isn't the current year. Displaying it all the time would be pointless though because most channels change their topic at least once per week.

I use PnP 4.22 and it shows the topic date in the $fulldate format (Fri 7th May 2004 11:15)

Dont know how to do it, though :P

I think it will use a remote script like this to do so ...

Code:
raw 333:*: {
  if ($1 == $me) && ($2 ischan) && ($4 isnum 1-) {

    var %echo, %target = $gettok($readini($mircini,events,default),5,44)

    if     (%target == 1) { %echo = echo -cets "topic text" }
    elseif (%target == 2) { halt }
    else                  { %echo = echo -ct "topic text" $2 }

    %echo * Set by $3 on $asctime($4)
    halt
  }
}
