#1211 closed Defect (Won't Fix)

Incorporate Adium-style transcripts for useability. Would be awesome!

Severity: Normal Keywords: transcripts, adium, transcript browser

Description

The current Colloquy transcript format is so slow and unwieldy, we use outside utilities (thanks Bogo!) to convert them to copy/pasteable text format. Adium has a fast, intuitive transcript browser built in, and I think its format would work perfectly in Colloquy as well. I also think the community would be thrilled to have transcripts they can work with finally!

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

I agree. The current transcript browser is so buggy and slow it's borderline unusable... I even started to look for alternative IRC clients just because the transcript browser sucks so much. :(

I switch this to defect, because the current transcript browser IS defect - it mixes together different transcripts, it's very slow and unreliable, search doesn't really work (because it will mix together different transcripts that are found in the same window )...

Workaround

I tend to:

  1. command-click the proxy icon (in window title bar) of the channel that I wish to search.
  2. from the menu, select Colloquy Transcripts
  3. in the resulting Finder window, use Spotlight.

That's not a panacea. YMMV :)

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

It's not appropriate to take an IM-style Transcript Browser and use it for an IRC-style Transcript Browser.

The Transcript Browser has been disabled in [3940]. It will not be turned back on, but eventually re-written.
