Unchecking AB Consolidate Kills Meta Buddies

Reported by: zac Owned by: anybody
Milestone: Adium X 1.0 Component: Adium Core
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:
Patch Status:


In the "advanced" section for "address book", unchecking "consolidate contacts listed in the card" will unbind every metacontact on the contacts list.

This is correct behaviour, but perhaps a badly worded checkbox. Consolidate contacts means the same thing as create metabuddies. When you turn it off you are turning off metabuddies, so the fact that you then see them unbinding would indicate that the feature is working :-)

Suggest either closing as invalid or changing checkbox wording to be more descriptive.

May just slash the preference entirely.

What prefs for address book do we actually want in there?

Throwing this on .90, but seriously, shouldn't metas be either on or off, and if on, and Address Book is on, then metas get made, tough cookies? I'm with Evan, kill the pref.

Problem is that there's no "off" for metacontacts... you make them or you don't... the only thing done automatically with metacontacts is from the address book cards.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [13960]) Improved the wording of the automatically-created-metacontacts address book preference, and added a confirmation when turning it off explaining that all existing meta contacts will be unconsolidated. Closes #139
