It is now possible to set max hotlist level for some nicks, per buffer, or per group of buffers (like IRC servers).

A new buffer property "hotlist_max_level_nicks" has been added. It can be set easily with script buffer_autoset.py, see /help autosetbuffer for example.

Possible levels are (default is -1):

  • -1: no hotlist changes for nick
  • 0: low priority (like join/part messages)
  • 1: message
  • 2: private
  • 3: highlight (in fact useless, since it's default max for all messages)

If you have already opened buffer, then script option will not apply immediately to buffers. Then you can use /buffer command to manually set this property on a buffer, for example, to disable highlights from "joe" and "mike" on current buffer:

/buffer set hotlist_max_level_nicks_add joe:2,mike:2
