#362 new Enhancement

Keep tab order of autojoined rooms matching connection order

Reported by: eevyl Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.1 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: grahamperrin


If I have server A first on the connection window, and then server B, I would like to have first in the tab bar the rooms I autojoin from server A and then the rooms autojoined from server B. Currently seems to put rooms from server B first always.

Supplement to this request:

It only doesn't follow the order in the connection window, it should also order the opened tabs by connection. (Auto)joined rooms for server A and server B mix in the tabbar, even when auto-joining. Sometimes the last room that's autojoined on the first server ends up at the last spot of the tabbar, with the rooms form server B between it and the rest of the rooms for server A. While there's no way of seeing what server a tab is connected to, it can be pretty hard to keep track of your tabs.

This is the reason why I switched back to the default behaviour, in the drawer, it tells you the servername below the name of the room. But I prefer tabs...

I too would like the tabs sorted somehow. I don't care how as long as the order of tabs is consistent for a given set of channels. The servers i join connect nearly simultaneously, so channels end up randomly ordered when i connect. Channels on a given server are always in the same order, but the servers are in a different order. When servers connect simultaneously, channels end up interleaved with each other. More commonly, channels on a given server are grouped together, and these groups are randomly ordered.

these all relate to sorting the sidebar:
a) #94 requests sorting according to auto join list (what about rooms joined through other means though?)
b) #362 requests sorting rooms according to connection
c) #456 suggests using a text file or a list in the app of some sort to define room sorting
d) #552 wants to sort panels according to type (consoles first, then rooms, then private chats)
c) #956 Make tabs (channels/messages) remember their position

Folks, I just started using this app to bring myself back into the IRC world. It's great, however I'm boggled why channels are unable to keep ordering/arrangement in the left pane. As the channel is the line of communication, it only seems natural to keep their order (which the user defines) in the left pane between application restarts. Currently, a user can order the channels, however the user has multiple IRC connections (as many of us do) everything gets unordered and messy when restarting the app. I know this is an open project, however really hope someone can clear this interface up because every other part of Colloquy's interface is perfect. Thanks
