Description

Chat view settings have a tick box for 'include read messages'. Having unticked that, I chat in #quassel. I observe the 'last read message' indicator is absent suggesting that all messages in the channel are considered 'read'. However they still show in the chat monitor. Perhaps this is not desired behaviour and the read messages need to be absent in the chat monitor instead.

History

#1 Updated by genius3000 almost 3 years ago

I believe this is intentional (even if not desired by some/many) for two reasons:
  1. The "Include read messages" option is a sub-option to "Show messages from backlog"
  2. Both options read "... from backlog on reconnect" in their tool tips

Meaning these options are only being used when reconnecting to the core; perhaps as a feature request (or along with the multiple chat monitors request), another option to "Show read messages" could be added for a live connection.
