About Prat 3.0

Prat-3.0 is a chat enhancement addon for world of warcraft 3.0.

It is made up of 30+ smaller "modules" which each provide additional functionality, and can be enabled or disabled individually.

In game, type /prat for a menu.

Bug reports:

Forum thread:

Prat has just about every feature you can think of, and then some. Really. When I get some more time, I'll try and put together a full list (Even I have lost count)

(Thanks to Dreamsight for this partial list)

  • Change arrows, buttons, mouse scroll for chat scroll, scroll speed
  • you can add color per channel, color per lvl, color per class
  • timestamps
  • timestamp color
  • whether to show timestamp (what format the timestamp should be in)
  • whether to show players lvl
  • you can select the option for channel "stickys" (last channel you used you auto use when hitting enter, that sort of thing – or last thing someone said)
  • change the looks of the chat's editbox - as well as where it appears (you can even undock it and move it to where you'd like it to be)
  • chat fading, fading delay
  • You can change the font to a list of fonts, add an outline to it, monochrome it (if you don’t mind messing with files a bit you could prolly even add other fonts to that list)
  • change the chat frame/chat box appearance
  • set Chat history
  • set channel abbreviations
  • set brackets and color(or something instead of brackets)round player/lvl
  • alt invite option (press keyboard “alt” button and click on the player’s name to auto inv them)
  • raid icon
  • invite links
  • info keeping
  • url copying
  • full chat copying + options (html,bbcode, plain, forum) + copy button
  • allows pop-up msgs
  • enables tell target /tt
  • Alias options
  • altnames options
  • you can enable/disable all prat modules - dont have to have the ones you dont use running
  • change chat sounds (incoming and outgoing as well as per channel)

Its predecessor, Prat-2.0 has been around since the TBC release in 2006. This new version seeks to improve upon some aspects such as memory use, but still do so without creating 30+ small folders in your addon directory that you have to manage.

While trying to reduce resource utilization, it is also important to note that some people prefer the features, and don't care that an addon uses 500k more. I have been trying to isolate the most resource intensive functionality into the Prat_HighCPUUSageModules folder. You can enable or disable it per your preference.

    Prat has been fixed. It is another one of your addons.

    Prat is up to date and disabling Prat immedaitely returns twitter icon functionality, I tried it on an alt with Prat as my only addon and the button doesn't work while Prat is enabled and works fine when that only addon is disabled.

    Hello there,

    Is it possible to block sentences in trade chat? For example, these spamming gold sellers are using marks (circle, skull, cross, triangle etc) in their advertisements and I would like to block every sentence that has those in it. Like (CIRCLE) cheapest gold on

    3.5.15, whispers to linked realms do not seem to work when right-clicking over toon name (with abbreviated realm) in chat.

    Def an issue with /target

    Only happens at certain times, I'm not sure what the cause is at all because it seems to be related to re targetting?

    Hey, Can I use this addon to see the combat log further back?
  • #3782

    I love the addon but recently i started having iue where teh sticky chat is not working. I have it all checked but nne of my channels hold what i was typing in. They all go back to /say

  • #3780

    Alt-Click to invite is back. Enjoy!

  • #3777

    Is the alt+click invite feature coming back any time soon? It's one of the main reasons I use this AddOn. Using it since 2006 :)

  • #3779

    It is in the latest alpha build. Once I test it against the twitter stuff I'll make a new release. You can get the alpha if you want it now.

  • #3778

    It was broken by the new Twitter integration that blizzard added. It might be worth releasing as a separate addon, but it will break the Twitter feature and cause errors. If I can find a way to make it work without causing errors for the Twitter feature I'll certainly add it back in. I love it too. For now you can tell people to say "invite" or "inv" and then click on those links.

    Hello! I'm having a problem where I have server names enabled, but they don't display on cross-server peoples' names in guild chat. This makes it more time consuming to do commands that require the full name/server combo, like party invites or manual whois, as you have to type the command manually, begin typing their name, and use the (very handy!) autocomplete feature. I did a couple tests and the cross-server players showed the full name/server in whispers and trade chat. Thank you!

    Hi :).I found that Overachiever addon may interfere with Prat. If I disable it Prat works perfectly. There is a comment on Overachiever curse page i write next: "In OverAchiever.lua on line 541 you hook the ChatFrame_OnHyperlinkShow function. This is not allowed any longer and you must use the hooksecurefunc to hook into this event. This, like many allready mentioned, blocks twitter integration". Maybe is it this?

    PS Sorry for my english
