How do I set the timestamp to be colored every time?

As in, in mIRC Options under messages when I say timestamp events, it's colored every time I open mIRC.

I tried to put a color tag in front of the h:nn, and then close the color tag, but when I close IRC and reopen it, it's gone.

So, how do I make it permanent?

I just typed the timestamp in the editbox, copied it to the clipboard and pasted it in the timestamp section and it remained. I don't know why it wouldn't work for you.

04[HH:nn]

If you're using a script, the script may handle timestamps for you and changing it in mIRC's options won't keep it changed because the script reloads whatever is set up in the script.

It wont stick around after you restart mIRC iirc.

Currently mIRC doesn't store the control codes when saving mIRC's settings.

Put this in your Remotes (Alt+R) to set the format (with control codes) each time mIRC starts:
Code:
on *:start:timestamp -f YOUR-FORMAT-HERE


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

Ah I misread it, I thought he meant it doesn't stay after closing and reopening the options dialog. Sorry about that.
