IntricateChatMods
Version: 1.21
by: ichik [More]
Basically, it's fork of Funkydude's BasicChatMods with some tweaks by ALZA and some stolen code from Low Memory Chat by Jaliborc.

Features:
  • completely transparent and stripped input box at the top of chat frame
  • all buttons removed, except the scroll back, which is shown only when chat is scrolled up
  • no need to hold alt for moving cursor in input box
  • removed hover for chat background
  • chat fading disabled
  • channel names are shortened ([Raid] becomes r, [Raid Leader] - R etc.)
  • button for copying chat text and ability to copy urls from chat
  • sticky channels
  • tell target (/tt) function
  • alt-click inviting from chat

To-do in future:
  • fix bugs if any

Please, note, this addon perfectly suites my personal needs and there won't be adding any features by request likely, only fixing bugs.

Latest alpha can be found at http://github.com/ichik/IntricateChatMods.

Please, submit bugs at http://github.com/ichik/IntricateChatMods/issues

Suggestion/Request/Question:

Is it possible to re-skin the edit box with the tooltip background? Tried to find something on the LUA but I'm not a programmer, just a hackjob coder.

And a request to remove the chat tab borders, as you have with the editbox and chatframe.

Love the addon btw, switched from the mem-hog Chatter. Wanderlust is amazing as well.

I have some problem with chatbox copy.
A row of text does not correspond to selected row, and copy the text above on the line.

I use the same position for the chat and have no problems with it. Just a matter of taste and clean corner.

Edit:
Had a look at your picture ... it's not there (v1.15).

Fyi I deactivated:
## channelnames.lua
## editbox.lua
## sticky.lua
That's weird. Buttons works for me… It's buttons.lua module and i don't really see how this could interfere with locale or smth (i'm playing with ruRU). Maybe some other addon blocks it, that's the only idea i have now.

Alt-click inviting is GREAT! No problem anymore with all those Déàthknîghts. Thanks for coding it.

Thanks for coding your addon in a modular way too. I deactivated some of the other stuff by adding ## in the toc-file ;-)

2 problems though:

1. The + for chat copying is sitting in a very uncomfortable position. I want to place my chat box at the very left and bottom edge and the + is in the way. Upper right corner would be a good position.
Edit (if anyone's interested):
I replaced line 1 of chatcopy.lua with
Code:
local ButtonPoint = { "TOPRIGHT" , DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME, "TOPRIGHT", 6, 30 }
Now the button sits at the top right corner and moves with it if you drag the chatscreen.

2. The scroll-back-button is not shown, even if chat is scrolled up (and with every module enabled). Where is it supposed to be? Other chat mods use the lower right corner which is a good idea.
Edit:

Fyi I deactivated:
## channelnames.lua
## editbox.lua
## sticky.lua

@Politig: It's eiter an old version you are using or something else is causing this. I get no error messages at all.

This addon seems to hide all of my chat. I can't see any of it and the channels are enabled

EDIT: I also receive 38 error messages x_x

Yep, you can turn them on and off and select different formats via ingame settings for chat and communication.

Well, you moved it to the right-bottom of the screen. For making it not to block smth. just move the chat window itself little bit more to the top.

The chatcopy button was blocking player's name at bottom left so I wanted to move it to bottom right by editing the lua but it just ended up disappearing. This is what I changed:

local ButtonPoint = { "BOTTOMRIGHT" , UIParent, "BOTTOMRIGHT", 0, 0 }

Look for the plus-like small button in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
