Yeah, the addon needs to be updated for the latest patch, as there are some changes in the chat system.

Bad timing . I'll be out of town and unable to develop for the patch for the next 9 days. If anyone would like to troubleshoot and upload a optional patch/file, I will be able to approve it at my location. For now, I believe enabling "Old Chat" or something like that in interface options will allow the previous version to function correctly.

What I believe is happening is the local "m" is now trying to reference a frame that was removed or replaced in this patch.

Timestamps no longer needs to be included in the addon, neither does Sticky Channels since the default blizz options can do these now.

The addon can edit what is sticky. Whisper sticky is incredibly annoying >.<

Just uploaded a long overdue fix. I'm still tweaking the channel name modifications and such, but the chat should function the same as it used to now.

Love the addon but is it my imagination or is there some kind of lag/delay when typing in the chat box?

No, there shouldn't be. You should check "Reduce Input Lag" In the WoW video options and see if that helps.

*Edit* Noticed you updated...

Nice addon

Was wondering how one would go about removing the brackets around player names when they type / speak in a channel. (Providing this is not beyond the addons limits )

Thanks for the updates Just a couple things:

1) In your latest (8/3 11AMish) update, the chat tab texture hiding is somehow broken, the Blizzard texture pops up on mouseover. I looked at the LUA and couldn't see any changes. I'm not using any other chat mods so I don't think anything else is interfering but you never know. Also, the Bliizzard texture hiding isn't working on chat frames other than the main chat frame. Rolling back to the 3AMish version makes everything work again.

2) Is there any way to make the edit box appear smaller, as in less padding around the text? The only thing I could see having to do with the edit box is where you defined the background and outline textures, the color and alpha, and the positioning.

I had the same issue until I changed showresize from true to false in .lua
works like a charm after that
keep up the good job!
