    Once you're in a chat, save it to your contacts and then right click the contact entry to expose options. I believe autojoin should show up in there.

    This worked perfectly and now I can pass this over to the many other users in my company. I know this was the excuse they used for not moving to trillian.

    i am using trillian-v5.3.0.14
    i cannot connect to a jabber conference room.
    i add the room as a contact. the message it gives me is that the person seems to be offline.
    the message in the contacts list is that it is "Awaiting Authorization"
    there is no password to connect to this conference room.
    i can connect to the same conference room if i use Pandion
    i would like to use trillian because pandion crashes 3 times a day.

    please let me know if it is even possible to connect to a conference room.
    the jabber network i connect to is hosted by my companies corporate network.

    Sorry Matt,

    We have an internal user that I assumed was asking these questions. My posts were half answered due to the fact I was going to walk over and assist. That is not the case with you.

    I fought this for a while with my company

    Chat Room id should be , [confroomname]@conference.[fqdnjabberservername]

    This was one of the walls I hit.

    Hi John
    Thanks for the replies, I hope i can reply directly to this email (and it
    is not a redirect security thing)

    my conference name is [email blocked]

    the version of trillian is trillian-v5.3.0.14 (so to me that means it is
    as i say i can connect no prob with pandion, but pandion does tend to crash

    if this is the same type setup that you have then i guess the problem is
    with the jabber server config.

    Thanks anyways

    Not sure i follow completely what is going on. But when you add it to the contact list, do not add the JID of the chat room, but instead go into the chat room and click 'save to contacts'.

    How do I set up xmpp conferences in the web client?

    Unfortunately our web client does not support xmpp conferences yet. However it is something we plan on adding in the future.

    the problem I'm having is when people using XMPP invite me to a conference/chat room I don't get the invite and they get a message indicating that my group chatting doesn't work. I can start chats but people don't see the invites either.
    This does work fine for me with Cisco Jabber 9.1.2b12936 and Pidgin 2.10.6

    Trillian 5.3b15 Pro on Windows 7 x64bit.

    What am I doing wrong?

    As of, there's no support of conference rooms. Can't create and can't join, even by invite.

    Where support of conferences will be added? Windows and Android.

    I've looked all over, tried various different skins, and for the life of me I cannot find a "save to contacts" anywhere in, on or around the chat room window.

    I'm running 5.3 Build 14 Pro

    5.3 does support chat rooms and the ability to save. If you click on the jabber icon near the top of the contact list, you should be able to join a chat room or browse for conferences.

    While you are within that chat room, you can right click on it to 'save to contacts' or the top toolbar should have a button that says 'save to contacts'.

    Trillian Beta released in early September appears to have the ability to join XMPP conference rooms, but crashes the moment I click "join". Does it every time on Mavericks. Should be 100% reproducible, but let me know if you need a crash dump.

    Considering buying a copy if I can get everything working with Mac and Android clients.

    Give this version of Trillian a try on your Mac and see if it helps:

    Once I have a conference room saved to my contacts is there a way to have have the conference room window open when a new message is entered in the conference?

    I currently have the options Auto Join and Stay in Chat on Close selected for the conference room.

    Hi, I have the same question as Thomas Nelson above. I'm using Trillian on OSX, so is there a way to receive Messages for a XMPP conference room in my contact list, without a open chat window?

    With best regards,
    Simon J.
