I use Irssi's autolog feature, but I'm tired of filling up my logs on relatively quiet channels with joins and quits. I've read the documentation for autologging, and I suspect that there is already a configuration that would prevent these from being logged. Unfortunately I do not see it in the documentation. Is there a way to do this?

There is a autolog_level setting.

According to the documentation the default is:

autolog_level = all -crap -clientcrap -ctcps

Try adding "-joins -parts" (and/or "-quits"?!) to it.

N.B.: May have to force the log to reopen for new settings to take effect.

Thanks! Took a few months, but I still didn't have a solution :) – Matthew Talbert Nov 26 '10 at 10:06
