Trade Chat Selling Addon?

I'm not sure if this is even possible for addons, but is there such an addon that would allow me to create a sentence and then have it auto say it in Trade chat like every minute or two? For example:

WTS [Item Link] (Price), Please whisper!

And it would send this to Trade Chat on a timer every couple of minutes.

Thank you!

*Edit* Also wanted to just add to this so I didn't have to make multiple posts. Is it possible to have the Preview Window from MogIt placed in a static position instead of on the tooltip? I use Auctioneer and it overlaps that tooltip. =[

Why not make a macro and click it every couple of minutes?

It takes less than 30 seconds to find 100 posts on how to put an item link into a macro.

There definitely is, and it was one of the first options I changed after installing MogIt, but as I'm not at home and can't find its exact location and wording for you, you'll have to look around in the options and find it yourself.

There are already numerous addons that do that. I don't know what any of them are called offhand, and am not going to spend any time finding them for you because I find that kind of automated spam unnecessary and obnoxious -- if you really care about selling your item in Trade chat, you can expend the 0.000000001 calories of energy it costs you to press a macro every few minutes, and it's really annoying to reply to someone's trade ad and get no reply but the default AFK message because they decided to go to the store and leave their addon logged in spamming -- but if you really want one, I'm sure it would not be hard to find.

Thanks for the replies guys, I wasn't able to make a macro yesterday as an addon I had was blocking the macro window from showing up. I ended up just deleting all of my addons and created the macro which is working fine.

About the MogIt, are you meaning I should look in the LUA files settings? I'm not seeing an option in game for it.

No, there is an in-game option. I clearly remember setting it, beacuse the tooltip-attached preview was obnoxious, though I do not recall what the actual text of the option is.
