Edit MOTD

I want to edit the code of the MOTD to make it open it after a set time on a loop. I’ve tried adding a “for do” and “simple timer” but none of these worked. Here’s the unedited version of the MOTD. Thanks!


ulx.motdmenu_exists = true

local mode
local url

function ulx.showMotdMenu( steamid )
	if mode == nil then
		return -- No data provided
	end

	local window = vgui.Create( "DFrame" )
	if ScrW() > 640 then -- Make it larger if we can.
		window:SetSize( ScrW()*0.9, ScrH()*0.9 )
	else
		window:SetSize( 640, 480 )
	end
	window:Center()
	window:SetTitle( "ULX MOTD" )
	window:SetVisible( true )
	window:MakePopup()

	local html = vgui.Create( "DHTML", window )
	--html:SetAllowLua( true ) -- Too much of a security risk for us to enable. Feel free to uncomment if you know what you're doing.

	local button = vgui.Create( "DButton", window )
	button:SetText( "Close" )
	button.DoClick = function() window:Close() end
	button:SetSize( 100, 40 )
	button:SetPos( (window:GetWide() - button:GetWide()) / 2, window:GetTall() - button:GetTall() - 10 )

	html:SetSize( window:GetWide() - 20, window:GetTall() - button:GetTall() - 50 )
	html:SetPos( 10, 30 )
	if mode == "1" then -- file
		html:SetHTML( ULib.fileRead( "data/ulx_motd.txt" ) or "" )
	elseif mode == "2" then -- generator
		html:SetHTML( ulx.generateMotdHTML() or "" )
	else -- URL
		url = string.gsub( url, "%%curmap%%", game.GetMap() )
		url = string.gsub( url, "%%steamid%%", steamid )
		html:OpenURL( url )
		url = "http://" .. data
		--coroutine.wait( 10 )
		--window:Close()
	
	--for i = 1, 5 do
		--	html:OpenURL( url )            -- Does this
			--window:SetVisible( true )
		--	timer.Simple( 10 + i, function() window:Close() end	) --repeats this
		--end
	end
end

function ulx.rcvMotd( mode_, data )
	mode = mode_
	if mode == "1" then -- file
		ULib.fileWrite( "data/ulx_motd.txt", data )
	elseif mode == "2" then -- generator
		ulx.motdSettings = data
	else -- URL
		if data:find( "://", 1, true ) then
			url = data
		else
			url = "http://" .. data
		end
	end
end
