Here's the edit I've been using.

Added a pop-up window for URL copy (thanks zork!) and a couple gsub changes. It's probably very sloppy and there's probably a better way of implementing a couple gsubs but I'm bad as crap at lua.

URL copy

Hi,

how can I turn the URL copy option on? What do I have to do in the LUA file to copy URLs?

For font outline add this anywhere in the code

Code:
for i = 1, NUM_CHAT_WINDOWS do
     _G['ChatFrame'..i]:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.ttf", 12, "OUTLINE")
end
You can change the font or font size within that. The reason I took out the option was because this will override your size option as well as any custom fonts.


As far as text align to the right... well first, keep in mind that addon authors do work for free, and don't always check comments, don't get impatient. Anyways, I'm updating the addon right now, with a few bug fixes, code cleanup, and the ability to align the combat log to the right. If you'd like to do it with additional channels you can add this code anywhere.

Code:
_G['ChatFrame'..2]:SetJustifyH("Right")
where "2" is the number of the chat, 2 is the combat log. 1 for main etc.

Open bChat.lua in a text editor and go to line 58.

Replace
Code:
text = gsub(text, "^To", "T")
With
Code:
text = gsub(text, "^To ", "T ")
That way the string replacement will only fire on the actual case instead of everything that starts with "To". That should fix it

I'm noticing an odd issue. bChat turns "To" at the start of words in nonplayer chat into "T". For example, when Topper Mcnab talks, it becomes "Tpper Mcnab" in the window. Same with when I added someone to my list named Tomin; the system message said "Tmin has been added".

(Tested, issue goes away when bChat is disabled).
