chat history not saved


Open Spark, double click on a random user, send a message to the user and close Spark (I'm using the tray icon, right-click and select "Close" there).
Open Spark again and check the history, there is a 50:50 chance that data is missing. It could be a timing issue (it three a timer to save the chat history?).

Stan, history fix is already applied to the Spark codebase. Next release will have history saving fixed.

Excellent, thanks a ton for the info, a seperate chat history fix sounds great as well, thanks again!

spark.jar is located in C:\Program Files\Spark\lib\ (Windows). It's the main program file. To use that patch you need to replace original spark.jar with the patched one. So, yes, it will take replacing it on every user station. BUT. It has issues (mainly with presence not updating dinamicly in the chat window titlebar (i mean presence icons)). And also there is some issue with MUC, it doesnt show message popups in the group chat and message counting is messed. So, be warned. I think i'm going to chat to the guy who is doing a lots of patches lately, maybe he can split this patch to make separate history fix. I will comment here if something will come up.

Sorry for such a basic question but im new to this side of things. I know its probably somewhere but I couldn't find it when searching.. How do I add the patch from the jar file? is it on each user stations or on my openfire server?

this is probably fixed in this patch (27-29 messages), anyone can try spark.jar uploaded there. it is saving history even on Spark crash. also this is in some kind a duplicate of
