I've read over the manual at http://www.irssi.org/documentation/manual and tried googling directly but I cannot figure out how to send to a particular channel if I am connected to multiple channels.

A related question is, when I am in multiple channels, does irssi default to sending messages to one channel or only the most recently joined channel?


I was considering deleting this question since I just figured it out through experimentation, but I will leave it for the future in case anyone else looks for this.

The active channel appears to be the one most recently joined, and you have to reissue the /channel #new_active_channel command to talk in another channel.


You switch screens, I use Alt + # (# for channel number)
