Re: Selectively format messages from a user in IRC?

It isn't hard, but it requires a custom message style and knowledge of HMTL and CSS. Basically, you add a username keyword to a classCSS in the message style HTML template, and then style as desired in the CSS file(s).

Re: sendercolor in group chat

Yes, Adium it is set by username. Essentially, Adium takes a hash of the username and uses that to choose from its list of colors. There isn't currently any way to change colors on a per-user basis, but you could override Adium's default colors for everyone. After some experimentation, you could pro...

Re: Message style components missing

Could you post a screenshot? It will probably be fixed by manually downloading Adium and replacing the (apparently damaged) one you already have, but it would be nice to see exactly what you're seeing.

Re: Buddy icons replaced by a "?" with certain Message Style

I can totally reproduce this, and the problem is that while Adium is trying to access a locally cached version of the file, the file doesn't exist. I couldn't find a ticket for this specific issue, but the presence of http://trac.adium.im/ticket/12696 and http://trac.adium.im/ticket/12731 implies th...

Re: Message Styles „corrupted“ [10.8.2, Adium 1.54]

By any chance have you started using OS X with a case-sensitive filesystem? Here's how to see for sure. Open Terminal.app and type 'df ' and then drag Adium.app to the terminal. Press enter. The output will probably looks something like "/dev/disk0s2 154622272 144889320 9220952 95% 18175163 115...

Re: Order of messages

I think it should be possible to create a message style that orders the newest messages at the top. I once tried to create a style that did this, but it required hacking javascript, and I don't really know javascript.

Re: can not separate contact

I try to avoid combined contacts, but I have seen this before. I believe that you can resolve it by quitting adium, removing the relevant metacontact entries in ~/Library/Application\ Support/Adium\ 2.0/Users/Default/libpurple/blist.xml, and restarting. If that doesn't do the trick try removing ~/Li...

Re: minor bug in minimal mod

Ah, interesting problem. We want the first message to be tall enough for the whole icon *unless* it's followed by a consecutivized message. I don't think there's a way to do that in CSS, so we're stuck with: 1) a partial, shrunk, or different icon for cases where an action is the first message. 2) a...

Re: Adium Message Themes

That's a function that's built into Adium, not into message styles (usually). Are you trying to change the default behavior, or are you modifying an existing style that doesn't do the image-text toggling? Or something else?

Re: Message style feedback

Hm, yes, a dark received background does appear to be problematic, especially if the foreground text isn't high contrast. Which highlights one of the challenges. Some people will have issues if the contrast isn't always as high as they want (usually higher than established accessibility standards). ...

Re: Message style feedback

The "new unfocused message" highlighting is illegible [and not really a good default. I have no interest in it myself] in minimal_mod. Could you post a pic of what you see? It wrecks havoc with OSX's text smoothing especially in certain fonts. What fonts? Never mind on these two questions...
