Trigger -> Response (creates a normal substitution)
Trigger ~> Response (creates an admin substitution)
Trigger (triggers the substitution)
List (displays a list of all substitutions)
Delete trigger (deletes the substitution - only admins can delete admin substitutions)
Delete all (deletes all normal substitutions - be careful!)
Delete all admin (deletes all admin substitutions - be careful!)
You can replace "trigger
" and "response
" with any text.
you can program Rage to give a text response to what you type by using an arrow.
There are two types of substitutions, and therefore two types of arrows.
Using a straight arrow (->) you create a normal substitution.
This means that anyone can create it, trigger it, overwrite it and delete it.
But the wavy arrow (~>) is an admin-only substitution.
This means only admins can create it, overwrite and/or delete it.
normal users can still trigger admin substitutions.
Note: the "Permissions" command will affect how users can interact with substitutions.
You set up a normal substitution by typing "Trigger -> Response" into the group chat.
So when someone in the group types "Trigger", Ragebot will respond with "Response".
This can be done with (almost) any word and/or sentences.
If you want to set it up as an admin substitution, you simply use ~> instead of ->.
Note: The only cases were you cannot set up a substitution is if the trigger part of the substitution exceeds 100 characters, or if its a word that's already used as a Ragebot command (or you're trying to set up an admin substitution whilst not being an admin...)
You also cannot create a normal substitution if there already exists an admin substitution by the same trigger.
Substitutions are not case-sensitive.
We will provide more examples below.
Here we are setting up multiple substitutions.
Here you see how they work in function.
With the "list" command, you can view the list of substitutions - although it will only list the first part (the trigger) and not the response.
The list will display both normal substitutions and admin substitutions.
If your list is too long to display all substitutions, you can type "list 2", "list 3" and so on to view the remaining ones.
If you want to delete a substitution, you will need to type "delete trigger", with "trigger" being whatever the substitution is called.
Normal substitutions (->) can be deleted by anyone, whereas admin substitutions (~>) can only be deleted by admins
If you decide you want to delete all normal substitutions, you will need to type "delete all".
If you want to delete all admin substitutions, type "delete all admin" instead.
Rage will list all of the substitutions it has deleted - for a very
limited time, you can type "undo" and it will undo the deletion.
The "delete all" and "delete all admin" are both admin-only commands - so you don't need to worry about non-admins doing this.
Only use this command if you're 100% sure you want to delete everything.
How to make a link clickable in substitutions:
In order for a link to be clickable, the substitution has to start with the link.
In the example above, we typed "Link -> Ragebot.net", so when someone types "link", Rage will respond with a clickable link card.
If you want it to be an admin substitution, you can use ~> instead.
If you want there to be some text in the link card, you will need to add the text after
The link should always be in first part of the substitution response - if you place a link in the middle or at end of a text, it will not be clickable.
Follow the example above and type "link -> Ragebot.net This is the link to our website", and it will display the text above the URL.
The text has to be a maximum of 56 characters for it to work - fortunately the link itself is excluded from the character limit.
You can use the same method to set up links in "set rules" and "set goodbye" (set goodbye is a Premium-only command).
both Ragebot and the person creating the substitution need to have been in the group for 24 hours or more in order for it to work.
If you or Rage is still in "Kik jail", the substitution won't be clickable and/or it won’t trigger the substitution at all.
