#2 More options for notifying (Pidgin)


At the moment you can choose either to notify for all IM messages and/or messages on active window.

I'd like to see functionality similar to MSN Messenger, so that only new conversations (those that do not have a window/tab open) will show the notification. Also clicking on the notification could open the conversation window it's notifying.

    Also there's one really annoying bug/feature. When you get disconnected and Pidgin automatically reconnects, you'll see notifications for every single contact that is online.

    The second request will be part of the next release ;)

    @: sallezzz fixed your added second comment (reregistering floods with notifications) and it will be changed in the next release (on reregistering PidginSnarl will behave like as one the startup)

    oh no, got it wrong - have to see if I can react on disconnected accounts - fixed it for Snarl restart until now...
