Adium Settings Export

Description

I would absolutely adore a feature that would allow me to export the entire settings set from adium.
Not only do I use Adium on multiple machines, but I also want the settings (which take time to get just the way i like them) to be backed up incase of a problem.

This feature would most likely either:

  1. only export plugins/skins that come with adium
  2. include any valid plugins/skins with the export for installation on a bare distribution of adium

i've wanted this for a while and i think it would really benefit everyone that uses your already great software
thanks!

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Back up ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0 and ~/Library/Preferences/com.adiumX.adiumX.plist and that's all you need to do to restore everything (except passwords, those are in keychain)

while i appreciate your solution and it's simplicity, other more 'common' users might not. little stupid features whose process might seem obvious to software's developers are what separate great software, from a great wide-spread replacement of a proprietary solution. based on this, i think that my original suggestion still merits some thought at a larger scale.
