I use several chat rooms regularly with Pidgin. Every time I want to join them, I need to pop-up the "Join Chat" dialog, select the right account, and enter the chat room name. Sometimes, the some of the server information is not there so, I need to enter that in as well.

I was hoping there's a way to simply save a chat room in the contact list, so I can simply click it to rejoin the chat. Is there?

From Buddy List: Buddies → Add Chat

From a chat window: Conversation → Add...

You'll find an auto-join option there, too.
