Irssi: JOINS PARTS QUITS in a new window


Ever wanted all JOINS, QUITS and PARTS in another window? Here's how

This post will explain how you can redirect all the joins parts and quits to another window (channel) so you can focus on the actual messages in a channel.

  1. Create a new hidden window in irssi
    /window new hidden

  2. Give the newly created window a name and stick it
    /window name @chancon
    /window stick

In my case I named the window "@chancon" You can move the channel to a disered place if you like.
I have mine on id 10 so I do this:
/window move 10

  1. Set the desired window levels for recieving and redirecting messages
    /set window_default_level MSGS PUBLICS NOTICES CTCPS ACTIONS KICKS MODES TOPICS NICKS CLIENTCRAP
    /foreach window /window level MSGS PUBLICS NOTICES CTCPS ACTIONS KICKS MODES TOPICS NICKS CLIENTCRAP

  2. Now set the incoming level for messages for your channel to JOINS, PARTS and QUITS
    /window level -ALL JOINS PARTS QUITS

  3. Last but not least go to your status window and remove the JOINS, PARTS and QUITS from there:
    /window level ALL -JOINS -PARTS -QUITS

  4. When thats done we should save our layout and config so we have that configuration and window also on our next irssi restart /save
    /layout save

    Thats it!
