ChannelLock

Version: v1.0-Beta12
by: PProvost [More]

About ChannelLock

Have you ever found that the channels you're joined to changes without any rhyme or reason? Or that you log over to another toon and don't have the channels you had on your main? Or maybe they change channel numbers and what used to be in /4 is now in /5?

ChannelLock was created to solve these problems. You simply provide the channel names and associated chat frames and it does the rest.

Slash Commands

Code:
/channellock or /cl
Opens the ChannelLock configuration screen

Trade and LookingForGroup Channels

One thing to note is that WoW treats some channels in a special way, which can create problems for ChannelLock. Special channels are those channels that can take up a slot in your channel list, but not actually be active channels.

The Trade channel, for example, is only active when you are in a trade zone (e.g. a city). The game APIs don't let me leave or join Trade, therefore, unless you are in a city. When ChannelLock runs into this issue, it will present a message telling you that it can't drop or replace Trade on that slot. To fix it, go to a trade zone and re-apply the ChannelLock settings in the configuration screen.

Another special channel is the LookingForGroup channel. This channel is only active when you are active in the in-game LFG system. When ChannelLock is asked to add or remove you from this channel, it will temporarily setup the in-game LFG system, make the channel change and then remove the change to LFG. This should work, but it may end up changing your LFG settings if you had something previously set up there.

v1.0-beta12
- Major re-write of the channel set/detect logic to avoid strange edge case failures.

Actually for me it is still operational and does not give a singe error message in Cataclysm.

Muted channels

Hi, this is great and what I've been looking for for some time.
Got it figured out with the GEM3 problem I had changing a line in their addon.

Now I see that any muted channel joined by CL is not keeping it's muted state.
Having RP addons like ImmersionRP that constantly sends coded messages makes a lot of spam, and to have to go into the chat setup after every relog to mute that channel is a bit tiresome.

Is there any way to make an automute-option? to make CL join a channel and then mute it by some command?

Sometimes this happens when you are in a channel that the addon has trouble dropping like Trade (if you aren't in a city) or Looking for Group.

I'm working on a fix for that. Try manually dropping those channels and reloading UI for now.

I tried the new version out on my healer, it's been working great. No problems at all, so far, been testing it for about a week.

Try reloading UI and see if it gets it right the second time. I know that means the algorithm is still not quite right, but it should at least get you working again.

Omg, great idea! Recently I've become a healer and I have to add like 4 channels to keep uptodate and each time I log on carbonite moves the channels differently almost each time lol. I'll test this addon in a few.
