History plugin shows smileys in timestamp

Reported by: computergeoffrey@… Owned by:
Milestone: 2.10.12 Component: plugins
Version: 2.10.11 Keywords:
Cc: igor.g


The history plugin shows smileys in a timestamp when they match the smiley character sequence. For example, with the Facebook smileys installed (includes :3): 10:30:30 becomes 10 smiley 0 smiley 0 instead of 10:30:30

However, 3.0 uses WebKit/WebView? and apparently needs a more involved solution.

mmcco does that disable smileys for the whole message?

No. options is declared at the top:

GtkIMHtmlOptions options = GTK_IMHTML_NO_COLOURS;

Unless I'm missing something major, my diff pretty clearly only appends the header. The g_strdup_printf() call shows that it's just that line. The body is rendered afterward:

gtk_imhtml_append_text(GTK_IMHTML(gtkconv->imhtml), history, options);

gtk_imhtml_append_text(GTK_IMHTML(gtkconv->imhtml), "<hr>", options);

On a separate note, I don't actually think that this is a problem for Pidgin 3. I've never noticed it myself. That said, 3.0's History plugin has bigger issues at the moment...

I just tested this patch on 2.10.11 and it's working for me.

I'll ask if this should be committed. It should make it into 2.10.12.

mmcco, did you get my e-mail?

It would be nice to see this committed (and released). Thank you already.

Is there any roadmap or target date for the release of 2.10.12?
