This addon provides the player with the ability to specify four extra pieces of name-related information about themselves, which will be shared with and displayed to other users of the addon. The extra bits of information are: "real" name, which will supplant your actual name; nickname, which will appear in quotation marks after your real / actual name; surname, which will appear at the end of your full name; and title, which will appear on the second line in the tooltip. All of these fields are optional. The configuration interface ("/cnames config") provides an intuitive method of changing this data, as well as several other options, including the ability to completely block the display of any of the extra data in your UI. There are also "fontstring override" fields on this screen, into which you can type the names of fontstring objects belonging to custom unit frames, to allow the extra data provided by this addon for each unit to be displayed there instead of in the default UI's unit frames. Also available is a player browser ("/cnames browse"), through the use of which you can view and, if necessary, block any other users of the addon with whom you've come into contact.
Feedback and Inquiries
I welcome feedback for any of my addons, including this one. However, if the feedback is a bug report or feature request, please use the methods on this page (the "Bugs" and "Features" buttons below the "Download" button in the top right) to alert me, instead of posting in the "Comments" section of this page, as it will take me longer to reply to you if you post there. For feedback or inquiries not related to bugs or features, such as information about translating this addon to another language or a request for a detailed explanation of a certain bit of code, please contact me directly via one of the methods listed in the "Preamble" section of my author portal's introduction text. Following these guidelines will ensure that I read and reply to your message.
History of Changes
See the readme file in this addon's folder, or my author portal, for an explanation of the versioning system.
- The character browser now properly updates its listed details when you select a different player on the dropdown menu.
- Party members's fontstrings will no longer have the nickname and surname erroneously added twice sometimes.
- Added a check to the function responsible for combining names to ensure that none of the names contain the delimiting character (tilde, ~), which would cause incorrect parsing.
- Initial release.
See the readme file in this addon's folder for earlier changes.
