I've download this from a website (not sure if its the right one) and it loads ok. However there are various errors around variables not being defined and routines.

Where did you get the script from?

By: someone Sat, 19 May 2007 08:41:14 +0000 I figured it out.

It's the undocumented:

# background for active window
sb_window_bg = "%2%k";

stupid, huh?

By: someone Sat, 19 May 2007 08:30:39 +0000 why the hell does irssi make it so hard to color the active split window's statusbar?

i also want to know how you hacked it.

no one seems to have any information anywhere. piece of shit documentation

By: Irssi Wed, 20 Sep 2006 06:04:16 +0000 Agreed. Or, maybe more helpfully, if you could point out what you did to allow you to change the background of the active statusbar like that.

I've been digging around in the docs and various themes trying to figure out what you did to set the active statusbar to a different color and haven't come up with anything.

A pointer or two would certainly be appreciated.
