XMPP: Invisible list/selective visibility
« on: 23 06 2014, 02:49:45 »
Hi,

Is it possible (in the worst case using raw XMPP commands to the server) to set the visibility for one contact individually?
(Many years ago with ICQ I used the "Invisible List")

I have my own XMPP server (prosody), should this feature require changes on the server too.

Thanks

Yes, you can use privacy lists (XEP-0016) in Jabber, from the jabber protocol menu (if your server supports that). Block all presences there.

That looks cool, thank you.

So there is "Message", "Presence (in)", "Presence (out)" and "Query" I can tick for each of my contacts.
But there is no "Insivible" ...
What do the types above mean precicely?

Presence means status sending/receiving. So if you block sending presences to a contact, you appear offline to him.

Thank you. So "Presence (out)" is the correct one (="Invisible")?
What is "Presence (in)" then? That I do not receive presence notifications of the contact?
