      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Pidgin and Yahoo!

Thanks, I noticed this had failed again today. I think I'm going to hold out for the time being until it stabilises :)

There is a new pidgin version that's fixed. You have to download it from pidgin though.

Thank you Jeanette & welcome to the board. I made the effort and compiled from sources and it works. Hopefully for longer than the other fixes.

Be warned anybody who wishes to compile you will need a few deps installing, but it's worth it.

I had a few issues with pidgin 2.5.7 and Yahoo- although it does connect (vanilla pidgin, not carrier or whatever hack of it).

Kopete from kde 4.3 svn does not connect-yet.
