I recommend you swap over to Prat, it has a ton of modules you can turn on/off so you don't have to worry about performance, hehe.

I sadly don't think it's much use to make EasyCopy with together with Alias.
Ok then I'll have to do that sadly. I didn't like how you copied in Prat but it'll have to do.

Maybe you need to pick up a new addons? /joke

I'll see if I can get in contact with the EasyCopy author. It works perfectly now on its own but yea as you said it's no point if it's going to break in a year and never be fixed. The copying is so superior to Prat and the way it doesn't interfere with addons like Chaticons, Skinner. Is why I'm trying not to move to another "mainstream" addon.

No sucess that made Easycopy throw out a bunch of .lua errors and when I tried to type something in chat it literally blew my game up. :P

Is it an Eascopy issue or a Friend List Color issue. Because I'm wondering if I should be looking for a new chat addon. Or if you will be fixing it when you have the time?

The Alias module has compatability issues with an addon called EasyCopy (best copying addon out there)

http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/easy-copy

It's basically a 50/50 chance on log in to remove the clickable timestamps that EasyCopy adds to click to copy.

No lua errors though and Friend list color addons seems to be working fine even though it broke EasyCopy.

That is correct, I uploaded 1.5.6.1 that fixed this and added the information in the slash command when the module has loaded, hehe. I was hoping no one would notice this mistake, kind of embarrassed.

It has it's own module, when enabled on the login screen addon list, you have this syntax, you put in the note of the person "^Name$" it can be anywhere, but the addon looks for the ^ and $ and uses what ever is in between as the alias for that person.

I'll add this information to the slash commands, so far only added it in the changelog, how silly of me.
I think you fucked up when you uploaded 1.5.6 look at the archived version of 1.5.6 it's missing the module all togheter.

RealID messages work, regular friend names are not yet properly swapped out in the chat when they login or out, but will be soon enough.

Hmm.. The alias feature seems to be working in the friends list, in the chat edit box but not in the chat itself for some reason.
