#6480 new enhancement

Reopen recently closed conversation

Reported by: Tythsai Owned by:
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.3 Keywords: Conversations, Middle button, History


I'm a middle click junky. It's an incredibly useful feature to be able to close a conversation just by middle clicking on a tab. But, sometimes it causes problems when i accidentally click out of a conversation that im in the middle of, or that has messages that i wanted to read and didnt get a chance to before i closed out of it.

on a few occassions i had decided not to have logging turned on when this happened and was pretty upset when i couldnt read what was said. when i have logging turned on, it does let me see what was said, but is kind of a hassle. if the conversations history plugin is activated, the hassle is less, but i still have to go to the buddy list and find the name of the person i was having a conversation with... if the person was offline, i need to go to buddies->show->offline buddies, or buddies-> new instant message... which is hard to use when everyone is aliased on your buddy list..

i was thinking that it could be a very small button, maybe on the left side of the conversation window (moving the tab for the first conversation over just slightly) that would auto-reopen whatever conversation you just closed out of. the amount of history to add to it i suppose can be up to the user, or the devs. but this would pretty much make my day.

For what it's worth, Adium supports this.
