I’m using Pidgin Portable inside of DropBox. Which works great.... except for the proliferation of conflicted copy files inside the
.purple folder. bleaugh.
Pidgin stores the buddy list, pounces, preferences, and other data as XML files in a “hidden” directory in Windows. This data can be useful for transferring data between Pidgin clients without reentering your data each time.
To copy/backup your data, head over to
C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\.purple\ and copy the XML files.
To transfer them to a Pidgin Portable installation, paste the files in
\PidginPortable\Data\settings\.purple\ overwriting any existing files.

It’s [shift + enter] which should have been obvious, only it wasn’t. In my previously heavily used work-client (Lotus), good ol’ enter worked... just like an enter key! Imagine!
