Description

Since upgrading from 0.12 to 0.13, I've noticed some channels sending me highlight notifications without any actual highlight visible when I visited the channel, I then realized this was because these notifications were for messages that matched my ignore list. I'm assuming this is related to https://bugs.quassel-irc.org/issues/1122 so tentatively assigning to digitalcircuit.

History

#1 Updated by digitalcircuit 5 months ago

By "sending me highlight notifications", are you referring to the channel name changing color (orange by default) to show a highlight, or receiving a pop-up notification/sound/etc?

If the former (changes color of channel name)…

It's a known issue given how those colors are calculated. Quassel keeps track of what kinds of messages have been received (join, part, message, highlight) in an efficient way, asking the database to store it. This currently doesn't take into account Dynamic ignore rules.

Workaround: Switch the Dynamic ignore to Permanent. This will keep those messages from ever being saved to the database in the first place.

Ideally, Dynamic rules would work too; perhaps there's a different way to fix this.

If the latter (triggers a pop-up notification/etc)…

This is a new bug we haven't seen before.

It's the former indeed.

That worked, thanks!

#3 Updated by digitalcircuit 5 months ago

  • Subject changed from Regression in 0.13: ignored messages still produce highlight notifications to Regression in 0.13: dynamically ignored messages still produce highlight notifications (buffer activity)
  • Target version set to Some future release

Thank you for confirming! I'm glad the workaround functions for now.

This is still a valid issue, so I'm leaving it open with a slightly clarified name.
