facebook chat friends not showing
I am back testing Astra after abandoning the pro version last year for pidgin and then digsby. I have a facebook connection and can see friends status updates listed.

But my friends logged into facebook do not show in chat. Is this a missing feature of Trillian or do I need to set something else up.

Thanks, Tom.

If your able to receive new feeds then obviously you enabled the facebook plugin. Go to preferences/Identities and Connections then select facebook, click the settings tab then Miscellaneous. Scroll down that page a bit to the "Experimental Chat Support" and fill in your info.
Note that people will not show up in your contact list untill the next time they sign on to facebook chat.

Superb! Thanks for letting me know.

It appears that a similar feature has not been added for Skype yet - I'm not seeing my online Skype contacts anyway.

A nice feature would be the ability to mass move members between groups - I would prefer to not have a facebook chat group. but have them in friends and be able to merge contacts there.

Update, from http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/forum...+chat%22+group:

Quote:
What you need to do is create a MetaContact for the person in question. Add their Facebook chat to the MetaContact list for them and Astra will permanently show that person (on- or off- line).
You can then drag the MetaContact to any group you want and it will stay there, even if their ONLY contact method is FB chat.

You must have skype running while astra is running due to restrictions set by skype.
