Description

Please create a way to manage channels as other IRC clients have.

I normally keep about 50 IRC channels organized in different folders that I can easily(one-click) join at any time. I don't go into all channels every day so auto joining them is not an option.

I do see that I can Right click on the 'Channel List' button in the menu bar, but that seems to have the following drawbacks:
1. It only shows channels defined for the current server
2. If a channel is set to auto join, it does not show up in this list so rejoining if it was closed is a pain

Overall, I'd like to see a 'Favorites' menu item at the top where:
- I'd be able to create my own folders in it
- Place channels of my choice into each folder (regardless of which network they are on)
- Be able to click on a channel name and have Adi log me into the appropriate server and join the channel accordingly

This way, I can easily get to whatever channels are important to me at any time.

Thanks

I have this on TODO already and it will be added, but probably not any time soon.

For now you could create a simple Menubar script like this:

on *:START:{
  menubar -a fav @fav Favorites
}

menu @fav {
  Folder1
    .#chan1:join #chan1
    .#chan2:join #chan2
    .#chan3:join #chan3
    .#chan4:join #chan4
  Folder2
    .#chan1:join #chan1
    .#chan2:join #chan2
    .#chan3:join #chan3
    .#chan4:join #chan4
}

You can add as many channels and folders as you want, the changes to the "menu @fav" is updated in real time when saving the script.
