Hi!

I just started using irc/irssi, and I am creating a theme using the default one as base, but also grabbing something here and there.

As can be seen in the image, I manage to properly align the nicks but I am not being able to properly do the same with other messages like join/quit/etc and /me/etc.

I managed to align some of them but in a very *ugly* way (what I will not keep), and still I cannot get rid (or just modify) of the "line_start" setting in those messages specifically (the blue asterisk).

My intention is to archive that without using any script to modify the interface.

Screenshot

Code:
# default foreground color (%N) - -1 is the "default terminal color"
default_color = "-1";

# print timestamp/servertag at the end of line, not at beginning
info_eol = "false";

# these characters are automatically replaced with specified color
# (dark grey by default)
replaces = { "[]=" = "%w$*%n"; };

abstracts = {
  ##
  ## generic
  ##

  # text to insert at the beginning of each non-message line
  line_start = "%B*%n ";

  # timestamp styling, nothing by default
  timestamp = "%K$*";

  # any kind of text that needs hilighting, default is to bold
  hilight = "%_$*%_";

  # any kind of error message, default is bright red
  error = "%R$*%n";

  # channel name is printed
  channel = "%_$*%_";

  # nick is printed
  nick = "%_$*%_";

  # nick host is printed
  nickhost = "[$*]";

  server = "%_$*%_";

  # some kind of comment is printed
