Right click the contact list and click Contact List.

If that doesnt work, quit and reopen.

Could you possible attach a screen shot of the problem you're describing?

Thanks,

I have no idea how to show the screen capture. basically, the status window is show and present, but other than that, there is nothing other than the basic menu up top.

If your porblem is just the contact list just isn't visible, try going to the Window menu and click Contact List.

So it's just an empty contact list... are there blue and white rows underneath the status button?

I meant to say, if you want to put an image in a message, you'll have to go to a place like ImageShack, upload the picture and copy and paste the url into your message here.

there's the screen shot. i wish it was something as simple as going to the window menu and selecting contact list, unfortunately that does not work. There is no contact list at all, only the away message. and taking down the away message still leaves me with non contact list.

I honestly have no idea what the problem is.

All I can suggest you do is force Adium to show/redraw the Contact List. Try going to the Preferences for Adium, click the Appearance toolbar item and change the color theme, list layout, window style, etc of the Contact List - see whether it appears or not.

Other than that, I've not nothing.

How ironic is it that he has a disappearing contact list and the Invisible Woman dock icon?

I think it's a subliminal message from the dev.

The contact list window disappearing is pretty much isolated to non-standard contact lists. So switch your contact list to a "Regular Window" in the preferences and it should reappear.
