Does Adium support Parental Controls?

Postby mysteron » Tue Jun 23, 2009 8:25 am

Hi.

I'm thinking of getting a Macbook Pro for my family, but I need to know if Adium supports the built-in OSX Parental Controls feature.


Thx,

What do you mean by "support"? What would that comprise?

OS X's parental controls let you do things like limiting the contacts in iChat, as well as block urls in Safari etc.

Currently, Adium supports no such limiting. It doesn't even fully implement the "Privacy Settings".

Apple (unfortunately) provides no way of interacting with the system parental controls prefs that I'm aware of. We'd have to roll our own system.

There are some early plans on the drawing board for some Parental Controls including:

- Forced Privacy Settings
- Profanity Filter
- Control of Buddy Lists

I just need to get some time to get those completed. (Hopefully in the not-to-distant future)

I'm not a big fan of parental controls, but I can see where some grups would want 'em. Good to know you'all have something on the stove for this. Thx!
