Note: Some experience in the PHP programming language - which this bot is written in - is recommended for using this bot. The documentation on this site assumes that you are familiar with at least the basics of PHP (such as declaring variables, how to quote strings, etc.). That said, this is only a recommendation - if you don't know PHP at all, you are welcome to try out LizardBot, and do ask for help on our IRC channel or elsewhere if you need it.


To run a command, simply say the command either in a channel the bot is in or as a PM to the bot. Commands are displayed in this format:

command [parameters] {optional parameters} (access level required by default to execute) description

NOTE: For the access level, s-trusted inherits *, trusted inherits s-trusted and *, v-trusted inherits trusted, s-trusted, and *, and root inherits v-trusted, trusted, s-trusted, and *. The special ignore group causes the bot to completely ignore messages from people in it.

NOTE: As of v5.3.2.0b, you may choose a custom command trigger. Being the default, @ is used below, but you may customize it for your bot. See Bot Setup for details on setting this.

NOTE: As of v5.4.0.2b, if you pass a : to the bot in a @eval or @exec command, you must replace it with $$ to avoid the bot from screwing up. For example, instead of @eval return self::$test, you should do @eval self$$$$$test.

  • @test (*) Tests the bot to see if it is running
  • @die (root) Orders the bot to disconnect from the current network
  • @say {target} [text] (s-trusted) Says text in the channel. Target necessary when command sent in PM. If sent in channel, sends text to that channel.

Reminder System

The @remind command (described above) is a part of the reminder system. When a reminder is entered into LizardBot using the @remind command, when it sees the specified "target" join a channel that LizardBot is in (if $setRemindOnJoin is enabled; see LizardBot/Setup), or talk in a channel that LizardBot is in, it will send that user all of the messages in its database that are marked as being destined for that user. It then automatically removes those reminders from its database. Disabling the system from the config file will disable the system entirely, while denying access in the config file will disallow adding from - but not sending to - the restricted users.

Reminders are sent to their "targets" like this: <target>: <original sender> asked me at
