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).

Sort-of-ish-buggy, you have to hit enter then click on the link. I haven't quit figured out how to make it auto open a new text box

This is intended, you can change it back by going to lines 85-85 and removing
Code:
"HighlightLeft", "HighlightMiddle", 
    "HighlightRight"

Just go to lines 119-121 and remove this entire sections
Code:
for g = 1, #CHAT_FRAME_TEXTURES do
        _G["ChatFrame"..i..CHAT_FRAME_TEXTURES[g]]:SetTexture(nil)
    end
then on line 112 change
Code:
_G[cf]:SetFading(true)
to
Code:
_G[cf]:SetFading(false)

Thank you for adding the shift+scroll function! <3

I'll update it this week adding a few new features back. Like url copy, invite shortcuts etc. And fixing any outstanding bugs such as that chat background still appearing.
Thank you very much and go on like this!

That's weird... I think I'm just too stupid to find the right option.

I have a problem, but first of all a link to the picture: http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/1172/bchatprob1.jpg

I am not sure, but I think it's the background of the editbox. How can I turn that off?
