#7203 closed enhancement (fixed)

Set Contact as Always Visible

Reported by: Cowboy Owned by: zacw
Milestone: Adium 1.2.1 Component: None
Version: Severity: normal

Patch Status:

Description (last modified by Zachary West)

Edit the Contact Hiding plugin to allow a particular list object to be "always visible".

--

i have "show offline contacts" disabled, so my offline contacts are hidden by default.

one of my contacts always has himself set to be invisible when he's online, so the sketchy chat-hos he knew five years ago don't know he's online. but i know he's online from 9-5.. because he told me he would be.

thing is, i don't want to have to show offline contacts every time i want to chat with him.

so, if you could add add a menu option / flag for each contact to "always show this contact regardless of status," all those invisible people will still be there, ready to talk to, with nary a keypress, and the chat-hos would be none the wiser

Milestone: Good idea for "later"

Related to #1025. However I'm very against the idea presented in the other ticket. I do however like the idea of providing an option such as "Pin to Contact List" since buddies could be seen as "shortcuts" of sorts and I could see the situation where this would be useful.

I think it might be good to note that most people will only care to do this for contacts that are set to appear offline (at least it seems like the only way this feature would be useful). The 'normal' expectation for how offline contacts are handled is that those contacts set to 'appear offline' should then appear online only after they have sent you a message. I think we're waiting on Libpurple for that to work though...

(In [21810]) Allow a contact to be set as "always visible" in the contact info's "settings" tab. This exposes and fixes the (already implemented during SoC?) "always visibile" behavior. Fixes #7203.

this setting does not stick in 1.2b3

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by Zachary West

It's fixed for b4.

comment:8 Changed 12 years ago by CC

Is it fixed? I can't get it to stick in the 1.2 final release.

comment:9 Changed 12 years ago by Jordan

I believe that issue of it not sticking is fixed for 1.2.1 when it is released.

Precisely; the 1.2b4 fix was incomplete, but it definitely works now. :)
