Commands start with the **/** character and can take a list of any number
of arguments, separated by spaces. If an argument should contain a space,
you can use the **"** character to surround this argument.

The commands described in this page are shown like this:

.. code-block::

    /command <mandatory argument> [optional argument]

You can get the same help as below from inside poezio with the **/help** command.

.. note:: Use command parameters like this:

    - Do not use quotes if they are unnecessary (words without special chars or spaces)
    - If the command takes several agrguments, you need to put quotes around arguments containing special chars such as backslashes or quotes
    - If the command always takes only one argument, then do not use quotes even for words containing special chars

Global commands

These commands work in *any* tab.

**/help [command]**
    If called without an argument, this command will list the
    available commands. If it has a valid command as an argument, this command
    will show the usage and the help for the given command.

**/join [room_name][@server][/nick] [password]**
    Join the specified room. You
    can specify a nickname after a slash (/). If no nickname is specified, you
    will use the default_nick in the configuration file. You can omit the room
    name: you will then join the room you're looking at (useful if you were
    kicked). You can also provide a room_name without specifying a server, the
    server of the room you're currently in will be used. You can also provide a
    password to join the room.


    - /join room@server.tld
    - /join room@server.tld/John
    - /join room2
    - /join /me_again
    - /join
    - /join room@server.tld/my_nick password
    - /join / password

**/exit and /quit**
    Just disconnect from the server and exit poezio.

.. _command-next:
    Go to the next room.

.. _command-prev:
    Go to the previous room.

.. _command-win:
**/win <number> or /w <number>**
    Go to the specified room.

.. _command-status:
**/status <availability> [status message]**
    Set your availability and
    (optionaly) your status message. The <availability> argument is one of
    "available, chat, away, afk, dnd, busy, xa" and the optional [status] argument
    will be your status message.'

.. _command-bookmark:
**/bookmark [roomname][/nick] [autojoin] [password]**
    Bookmark the specified
    room. This command uses  almost the same syntax as /join. Type /help join for
    syntax examples. Note that when typing /bookmark on its own, the room will be
    bookmarked with the nickname you're currently using in this room (instead of
    default_nick). You can specify an optional *autojoin* and *password* if you
    call it with the full line (/bookmark alone will put the room in autojoin
    without password). The bookmarks stored with this command are stored on your
    xmpp server.

.. _command-bookmark-local:
**/bookmark_local [roomname][/nick]**
    Bookmark the  specified room (you will
    then auto-join it on each poezio start). This commands uses almost the same
    syntax as /join. Type /help join for syntax examples. Note that when typing
    /bookmark on its own, the room will be bookmarked with the nickname you're
    currently using in this room (instead of default_nick). The bookmarks stored
    with this command will be stored locally. They have priority over the ones
    stored online.

.. _command-remove-bookmark:
**/remove_bookmark [room_jid]**
    Remove the bookmark on *room_jid* or the one on the current tab, if any.

.. _command-bookmarks:
    Show the current bookmarks.

.. _command-set:
**/set [plugin|][section] <option> <value>**
    Set the value to the option in
    your configuration file. You can, for example, change your default nickname
    by doing "/set default_nick toto" or your resource with "/set resource
    blabla".  Doing so will write in the main config file, and in the main
    section ([Poezio]). But you can also write to another section, with "/set
    bindings M-i ^i", to a plugin configuration with "/set mpd_client| host
    main" (notice the **|**, it is mandatory to write in a plugin), or even to
    another section in a plugin configuration "/set plugin|other_section option
    value".  **toggle** can be used as a special value for a boolean option. It
    just set the option to true if it’s currently false, and to false if it’s
    currently true.

.. _command-move-tab:
**/move_tab <source> <destination>**
    Move tab <source> to <destination>. If
    the create_gaps option is true, then it will leave a gap at the <source>
    position, leading to usual behaviour. If create_gaps is not enabled, then the
    tabs will number from 0 to your actual tab number, without gaps (which means
    their number will change if you close a tab on the left of the list).

.. _command-theme:
**/theme [theme_name]**
    Reload the theme defined in the config file. If
    _theme_name_ is given, this command will act like /set theme theme_name then
