    Until a further update is released, if you're having a problem with Real ID messages being displayed, go into Chatter settings and disable the Player Names module.

    Hello everyone.. I'm not sure if this would be considered broken or just the way it should work now.. but since Chatter's update after Blizz changes to chat frames, I can't move the Chat Tabs up or down anymore, through the Button Height in chat tabs module. It works only for General, but any other tab gets cut off if moved past the original button height.

    It has been quite an issue for me, without that option my chat tabs are behind other pieces of my UI.

    Regards, WoLf

    Hey there, I was wondering if there is a way to disable highlights in specific channels. I love the highlight feature, but I don't want it popping up at me in a channel i don't care about because my keyword is part of a word someone said.

    Since tickets are not currently being looked at, will point out ticket 220 here ("wrong hooking of ChatFrame_MessageEventHandler") (I assume that 4.0.6 has changed things a bit).

    And a different problem in WoW 4.0.6 (only) I have experienced here: Chatter's ChatScroll.lua module is tainting.

    Chatter v1.2.9-3-6-g77a2a26, the following shows up in taint.log:

    2/14 20:15:23.406 Global variable InterfaceOptionsSocialPanelChatMouseScroll_SetScrolling tainted by Ace3 - Interface\AddOns\Ace3\AceHook-3.0\AceHook-3.0.lua:245 hook() 2/14 20:15:23.406 Interface\AddOns\Ace3\AceHook-3.0\AceHook-3.0.lua:325 RawHook() 2/14 20:15:23.406 Interface\AddOns\Chatter\Modules\ChatScroll.lua:53 2/14 20:15:23.406 xpcall() 2/14 20:15:23.406 safecall Dispatcher[1]:9 2/14 20:15:23.406 Interface\AddOns\Ace3\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:514 InitializeAddon() 2/14 20:15:23.406 Interface\AddOns\Ace3\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:628

    Variations on the last two errors above repeat many (many) times all at the same time, creating a taint.log 62kb in size.

    Sorry to see this addon dying. Like it much better than Prat.

    @creepy_inc: I hardly can imagine such issue.

    • Chat* logging done on the game level, addon only control if the game would log it or not.

    The *combat* logging *potentially* could affect your game performance, if you're playing on seriously dated hardware. But that's out of this addon's discussion scope, as it does not control THAT setting.

    This is my signature. There's many like it, but this one is mine.

    Would chat logging have any impact on my game performance?

    How do you increase the font size of the chat edit box text? It's too small for me as default. Can Chatter do this?
