  • Chat menu button inside the chat frame, at the upright corner optional module
  • Enables chat scrolling
  • Relocates bottom button to be inside the chat frame, and it only appears when you are scrolling.
  • Shorten and removes channel names (the color should be enough)
  • Makes Yell, Whisper, Party, Raid, Guild and Officer channels sticky optional modules
  • Moves the editbox to the top of the frame optional module
  • Lets you choose between several editbox styles (see the second image)
  • Timestamps optional module
  • Disable Tab Flash optional module
  • Disable Text Fading optional module

Excellent addon. Thank you very much for creating it and maintaining it

One question:
Is there any way to make whispers sticky?

This addon does not shorten "general" channels, only the standard ones, like "Say", "Party", "Yell", "Raid",... etc

etc.

Thank you
I may add that feature in the future, but that's not one of my priorities.

Wonderful addon overall, though
This add-on does not change any text fonts. There are several stand alone add-ons which do just that. You can also create a "Fonts" folder in your World of Warcraft directory and place there your own fonts.
If you need more help, go to the WoWInterface forums.
