#1070 assigned Enhancement

add server "Description" field as an alias to long/similar addresses and ips

Reported by: ScottM Owned by: NoOneButMe
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.1 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords:


It would be handy if the Connection Panel could accept some sort of "alias" for a server rather than having to display the full server name. I am on loads of servers, some of which have long and annoying names, and simply being able to refer to it by a shorthand alias would be a nice visual enhancement.

For example:


And so on.

  • milestone set to Colloquy 3.0
  • Summary changed from Aliases for server names in the connection panel rather than full hostname/IP to add server "Description" field as an alias to long/similar addresses and ips

basically the same thing that mobile already has. irc networks offer a "NETWORK=QuakeNet?" in 005, maybe that could be used as a fallback
