Broadcaster sends a specified message to all open chat windows.

Use is easy:

Very cool!

# by darmot7 on 09/19/04 at 12:17:14

cool! is there anyway to get the script to not have the /all{message(

# by Félix on 09/20/04 at 17:00:56

Very useful :)

This is handy for when I am doing an internet music broadcast, would be nice to be able to do it for all the users currently not set as away though.

Very useful, for saying BRB to everyone.

Definitely a keeper.

Ok... why can't i get this to work? Am I having a blonde moment? LOL!!

# by mandrake on 01/19/06 at 16:06:40

is there a way i can send a messsage to all online users without having to open their windows? thank you.

# by evands on 01/19/06 at 16:36:11

There is, but I don't want to post the script to because of the great potential for abuse. Take a look at the applescript within this xtra; most of the work is just chagning the word 'chat' to 'contact'.

# by mandrake on 01/31/06 at 00:35:09

mmm, very considerate. however, when you do this it send the message to the entire contact list. even the contacts that are offline. how can i only send it to the ones that are online?

# by evands on 02/02/06 at 19:12:41

Add a check in there of the form "if (online of contact is true)" or something similar.

Great job. I just used it for broadcasting a local band concert date to everyone on my list. Very fast and very useful. Thanks.

This script doesn't seem to work on the latest release of Adium 1.2

# by evands on 01/18/08 at 06:50:32

Now updated for 1.2+

# by zevlag on 01/18/08 at 10:58:17

Thank you, works great.

# by Xjs on 01/18/08 at 09:07:34

Cool idea, simple implementation.

I could have done it, too, iThink, but although thanks for creating the script.

Nice script. Wish I had installed it when I first started using Adium.

Since others have had issues in the past my experience is V1.1 of this script works exactly as stated using Adium 1.2.3 running on Leopard with the latest patches (as of 3/13/2008). Also, a previous comment mentioned it did not strip out "/all{" but I did not see this and the message test between {} was properly parsed and multicasted to each open chat session.

# by veads on 09/09/08 at 15:02:50

Hey, will this work with V1.3? If so I'm having a hard time getting it to work. Can you walk me through step by step?
I would love to use it in my school.

# by Leech on 09/17/08 at 00:22:49

Is there a way to send the message after the "/all" without enclosing message with { and } ?

# by dhjdhj on 10/24/08 at 10:35:10

This is (almost) what I have been looking for. I need something in between "broadcast to all open windows" and "broadcast to all contacts"

What I'd like to be able to do is select some subset of my contacts and be able to broadcast to that subset, without having to first open chat windows, etc

Thanks for making this plugin.

# by dhjdhj on 10/28/08 at 15:28:22

FYI I got bitten by broadcasting a message to all open windows because someone outside my working group happened to IM me to say hello but I didn't notice, so my broadcast went to the outside person as well.

Be careful!

# by RazFandango on 05/10/10 at 15:54:54

Almost 2 years later and this extension still works with the latest version of Adium. Personally I'd like to see the functionality that dhjdhj requested, but that's what Spark IM is for I suppose.
