Wildfire 2.5.1 (Broadcast 1.1.5) and Spark 1.1.2 on Windows 2000. Shared groups. Also Exodus 0.9.1.0, Psi 0.10. Everything on the same machine, for testing.
Broadcasting in Spark works strange for me.
How can i send a broadcast message to a desired group through Broadcast plugin without adding this group-broadcast-contact to a roster? I just want to specify JID and send message. Wondering, could this be possible sometime to add such broadcast contacts to a Shared groups through Admin Console? Because now every user has to add this contacts manually. Or maybe this could be stored in Private Storage, in same manner like: JM-351 ?
If i use Spark built in broadcast feature and send a broadcast to a group, such broadcast cames as offline message somehow, even if a user is online. E.g. Exodus, Spark and Psi users are online. I then send a broadcast to a group with Psi. Exodus gets normal broadcast window. If i send broadcast to group with Spark, Exodus gets Events window (like it should get if some messages came while it was offline), Psi is getting it as offline too. But these users were online! Maybe i missunderstand something but all this broadcast (built in and plugin) stuff looks so messy. Need to clarify a bit One more example. I send a message in Psi or in Exodus to a email@example.com and Psi and Exodus are getting it in a broadcast window, and Spark gets it as a simple message.
Seems like Spark is showing broadcast style window only if this message was sent from Spark to a group with group-broadcast contact in it.
I have mentioned this some time ago. Every time i upgrade Spark “Launch on Startup” is turned on, though i have disabled it.
Looks like i cant access Spark preferences until i login.
