Show only selected offline contacts.

Post by drylight »

I was wondering... I normally hide all offline contacts, but is it possible to show only selected offline contacts while hiding the rest? In other words, always show a contact no matter whether I hide or show all offline contacts?

Cheers,
Diego

This is a bit of stretch and I'm not at home to test this.

Couldnt you show offline contacts and move the one contact that you always want to see in its own group? That way all the offline contacts are in their own group and you can just minimize that group?

Just so you know, Twitter IM (AIM) is down at the moment. That's probably why you're not seeing it online.

Zeremus: As per your suggestion I set it to who offline contacts. Also turned on the offline contacts group. But when doing this you can't move an offline contact in to another gourp. For example move it in to the Buddies group. It stays in the Offline Contacts group.

aptenergy: Even though Twitter contact is showing offline the messages sent to it still post through to Twitter.

I'm pretty sure you can have a contact in more than one group. Just manually add them to another group and it should put the contact in two groups.
