This renders an IRC channel name with a link to the webchat interface and takes the following parameters:

  • (unnamed): the name of the channel without the #. Default: archiveteam-bs
  • network: the IRC network this channel is/was located on. This can have the values hackint (default) or EFnet.
  • abandoned: the presence of a non-empty value for this parameter marks the channel as abandoned. This causes the main output of the template to instead point to the general discussion channel (#archiveteam-bs on hackint) while keeping a reference to the former channel.
  • abandoned_render_mode: how the abandoned channel should be rendered. Possible values are inline (default), br+small, oldtextonly. See below for examples.


  • {{IRC|archiveteam}} results in: #archiveteam (on hackint)
  • {{IRC}} results in: #archiveteam-bs (on hackint)
  • {{IRC|}} results in: #archiveteam-bs (on hackint)
  • {{IRC|channelname|network=EFnet}} results in: #channelname (on EFnet)
  • {{IRC|channelname|EFnet}} results in: #channelname (on EFnet)
  • {{IRC|foo|EFnet|abandoned}} results in (note the hover text): #archiveteam-bs (on hackint)
  • {{IRC|foo|EFnet|abandoned|oldtextonly}} results in: #foo (on EFnet) (abandoned)

The br+small render mode produces two lines of output: {{IRC|foo|EFnet|abandoned|br+small}} results in:

#archiveteam-bs (on hackint)
(formerly #foo (on EFnet))
