Before we start I want to express the importance of ALWAYS backing up your popups. Make a copy and save it on a floppy or another part of your hard drive.
Popups are commands triggered by your RIGHT mouse button by clicking in the nickname list or in the main window(largest screen)which in turn gives you a menu to choose items from. If you havent downloaded PIRCH98 yet, I recommend getting it. You will notice a few changes, but basically the easy to use and the interface hasn't changed.
One plus you have in PIRCH98 is an added popup window...which makes 5 now. In pirch32 you only had 4(server/status, Channel(main panel), Channel(name list), and msg/DCC. Now you have one called Main Menu. This tab allows you to add popups to your main window!! A very functional tool!! If you are a op then you can put controls on the main window like kick/ban or shun

To load a popup.irc file. Click on popups on the toolbar. Then click on the tab of the window that you want to load it into click load at the bottom of the window(for PIRCH98 click on the + sign) this will give you a list of files. Double click to load the file. Click on Save at the bottom of the window(check mark top left corner in PIRCH98) and you are ready to have fun!!

NOTE: all popups must be on one line in order to work correctly

Server Window Popups

Server popups are generally used to issue commands after connection. Some servers that have nick registration require a password and this protects your nick from others. You can also join rooms from this screen
Adding popups is fairly simple and is the same for all 5 windows
1) click on popups on the tool bar
2) click on tab named "Server Window"
3) type in a title(name) followed by a colon( : ) then your command(/join #30+toybox)
4) click SAVE
generally, this is where I store my extra/borrowed popups until I can edit them and use them.
*note: the pass is only needed if you are an op in a room and on some servers there are bots that do this for you*

Channel (Names List)

This section can be used for any type of command, but is mostly used for fun/colorful popups.
1) click on popups on the tool bar
2) click on tab named "Channel(names list)"
3) type in a title(name) followed by a colon( : ) then your popup
4) click SAVE
To use this popup, highlight a name in the list and right click. A menu will pop up and you should see your popups. Highlight one and click it to execute.
*note: when you first download pirch you get 2 samples of popups... a hug and a slam. You must acquire more popups once downloaded*

Main Menu

This section can be used for any type of command, but is mostly for commands for the ops of a room.
1) click on popups on the tool bar
2) click on tab named main menu
3) type in a title(name) followed by a colon( : ) then your popup it will look like this globops:/globops Reno 12 $?="message"
4) click SAVE
To use this popup, highlight a name in the list and then just click on the name on the top taskbar.

Private Message/DCC Popups

These are used in a DCC/priv msg chat(1-1). Most commonly used are fun/colorful popups in private messages.

1) click on popups on the tool bar
2) click on tab named Private Message/DCC
3) type in a title(name) followed by a colon( : ) then your popup
4) click SAVE
To use this popup just right click in the middle of your DCC or Private Msg window.


Channel Main Pane Popups

This tab can be used for any type of popup in the main menu from commands to run pils or fun/colorful popups

1) click on popups on the tool bar
2) click on tab named "Main Menu"
3) type in a title(name) followed by a colon( : ) then your popup
4) click SAVE
To use these popups is just like using a pull down menu item.

Using Multi lined Popups

You have already learned how to copy and paste popups now you will learn how to do the multi-lined popups.

Next click on popups at the top of your PIRCH window and then on which ever window you want to put it in (usually Channel Names List). Name the popup follow it with a colon ( : ) and then paste your popup in. Edit it by taking out any names or unwanted lines. If there is more than one line in the popup the lines must be separated by a | (shift \) and then put into one line. Click on Save at the bottom(checkmark in pirch98). For any extra help in stealing or editing come see the ops in #30+toybox at http://www.nevadagold.net

Nesting Popups

Nesting your popups is just like grouping similar things together. This is a MUST do if you have more than 28 lines of popups or your popups will cover your entire screen leaving you lost in chat :-)
To nest your popups type in a category (remember you are putting similar ones together) name. go to the next line, type a period( . ) followed by a sub category. go to the next line and type 2 periods( .. ) followed by the name of the popup then the popup itself. ex. below:
-
GREETS
.hugs
..hug1:/me hugs (((( $$1 )))
..allhearthug:/me hugs $1 with all her heart
.kisses
..mornkiss:/me gives $1 a good morning kiss *MWAH*
-
NOTE: you might want the hyphen to make a break between categories...it isn't neccessary but makes everything look neater.
