Version: 6.0.3.87

  • Shortens chat channel names
  • Shortens cross-realm character names and Real ID player names
  • Replaces Real ID player names and BattleTags with WoW character names
  • Enables arrow keys without the Alt key (*)
  • Enables resizing chat frames by their edges
  • Makes all channels sticky (**)
  • Makes URLs clickable for easy copying
  • Moves the input box above the chat frame
  • Sets the delay time for chat text fading
  • Stops docked chat tabs from being dragged
  • Hides the scroll, menu, and social buttons
  • Hides extra textures on chat frames
  • Hides the flashing effect on chat tabs
  • Hides channel notification messages
  • Hides repeated messages in public channels
  • Enables class colored names in all channels with a single click
  • Changes the text size in all chat frames from a single control
(*) As of Patch 5.4 using Up/Down to access previously entered chat lines without the Alt key is limited to non-secure commands only. If you need to access previously entered secure commands (like /cast or /use) you will still need to hold the Alt key.

(**) If a channel is sticky, then after talking in that channel, the chat input box will open to the same chat type again, rather than making you type “/g” or “/ra” again.
Options & Commands
  • Type “/pchat” for options, or find them in the Interface Options.
  • Type “/pchat clear” to clear all chat windows.
  • Type “/tt" or “/wt” to send a whisper to your current target.
Some additional options, such as customizing which channels are made sticky and what abbreviations are used for channel names, are available by editing the Core.lua file in a plain-text editor such as Notepad. If you break something, download a fresh copy and try again.

Please DO NOT send me PMs asking for help, reporting bugs, or requesting features. To report a bug or suggest a feature, see the instructions below. To get help, post a comment. I read and respond to every ticket and comment!

Unfortunately I have no way to test, since I don't use RealID and don't know anyone who does who'd be able to run debugging procedures for me, and I have a long list of more urgent issues in other addons to deal with, as well as actually playing the game in what limited time I have, so I have no ETA on a fix for you, sorry.

I'm happy to accept a patch if you can provide one, though.

RealID. I don't have battletag friends to see if that works.

Not changing realid name to char name?

I have updated the addon to the latest and it isn't changing the RealID name to the Character name. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? All the appropriate checkbox appear to be set right.
Thanks.

Request

Not sure if this falls under the Custom Font but I have a couple requests:

1) Can there be a option to do [1] instead of 1| for channel numbers and names?

2) Can channel name be changed (lower case g| to me is not eye pleasing)

Other then that great addon.

It will be resolved when I get around to fixing all the issues that need fixing and posting a new release. If you want to pay my salary so I can stay home and write WoW addons instead of going to work, that's cool. Otherwise, you'll just have to wait. This is a very minor issue and not worth prioritizing over all the other things I need and want to do with my 24 hours a day.

I noticed this too today - it happened when a bnet friend logged off. I got no message in Chat about it, only the toast, and this error.

However, this fallback font doesn't adjust to match your selected chat font size, so in your case it's too big, and in my case it's much too small.

The simplest solutions are probably to install (a) TradeChatCleaner or some other anti-spam addon to block gold seller spam, and (b) BlockChinese to more generally block all chat messages containing East Asian characters.
Ah I see, thanks.
