The /statusbar documentation is bad #758
The whole thing is just not great at explaining how statusbars and statusbar items work, it's not helpful if you don't already know how to manipulate them.
The existing text has some conceptual errors too. Most glaring mistake is that
There's more text here https://irssi.org/documentation/startup/#statusbar - certainly better than the /help text.
A quadpoint-style illustrated explanation in a separate page of the website would definitely be cool.
Also the process of writing these docs will highlight what parts of statusbars themselves are bad.
