#13547 new enhancement

set up new IRC account when clicking an irc:// URL

Reported by: chemistrydioxide Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: 2.7.11 Keywords:


When clicking an irc:// URL and there is no appropriate account for that network, Pidgin should suggest the user to set up an account for that IRC server.

Because the user might in fact be connected to the right IRC server but under a different host name (e.g. the user has to access IRC through port forwarding due to a misconfigured firewall so that localhost:12345 is, there should also be an option to direct Pidgin to an existing or new account with a different host name.

The use case with IRC urls and accounts that are already configured in Pidgin has already been solved as part of #3521.
