how do u add ignore

Asked by madksman on 2007-01-05

on my older version of xchat i was able to rhgt clk in the msg box and choose ignore
 which would then go add the spammer to my ignore list

here is the scene

ur minding ur own bussiness and boom u get a msg box from someone you dont know

i was able b4 [not now] to rhgt clk the screen and pick ignore and bingo the nick would go away

the current xchat v2.6.6 edgy kubuntu lacks this needed fix!

you are so right!

except you did not read my request fully

ok if you re read that line it goes to the heart of my request.....

how do i change the right clk menu to include ignore like the older ver of xhat had inside a message box.

thanks for the input

I read you request, but I can't help you on that.

If you want to change XChat, download the source, change it and compile it.

Well, I did some research and I think I may have found a solution to your problem. Get a hold of xchat 2.4.3 (use google for that) and copy popup.conf content. Now edit your current release of xchat's popup.conf and paste the content of the old file.

I hope I made myself clear.

I don't use xchat, but locate popup.conf should give you a location of where to find it (don't forget to: sudo updatedb)

on main screen clk settings advanced

change name of the new button to "Ignore"
move cursor to the right and change the box to read this "ignore %s!*@* ALL"
so u have main box "ignore" and commands = ignore %s!*@* ALL
