    when trying to move any chat channel to it's own, new, window it errors (below). a new window will appear, with the name of the chat channel, but it will just be a duplicate of the general window, with all channels included.

    Message: Interface\FrameXML\FloatingChatFrame.lua:110: attempt to index local 'copyFrom' (a nil value)
    Time: 11/22/10 03:45:45

    will look into this
  • #20

    Fantastic addon, just wondering if it would be possible to create an option such that chat flows from top to bottom instead of bottom to top?

  • #19
    Okay, sadly I found a flaw one many would consider a deal-breaker I think.

    Thousands of players use the addons TomTom and Lightheaded. If you click world locs in Lightheaded wChat intercepts that click and thinks it's a url so it opens up the url copy/paste box and TomTom does not put the arrow on the screen because wChat interfered with it.

    Can you fix this please? Only let wChat do a url copy procedure if it is in fact an actual url, not a number like 61,45 or 61.345, 67.84 or 78:98
  • #17
    Hi, does this have the /tt command (Tell Target)?

  • #18
    Okay I see that it doesn't but could you please add it so I do not have to install another addon?
