    Hey, thanks for the 7.1 updates, copy chat also seems to be not working even on the alpha build, the textbox window it brings up is blank. Edit: Changing settings in Player Names also doesn't seem to do anything, since updating all names in chat have square brackets around them no matter how I change the options for brackets/separator.

    @Vampyrate , class colors are VERY LONG since a feature of default Blizzard chat settings. Enable them there.

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

    I'm having the exact same issue, also trying to just press 1, 2 or 3 etc brings up a .lua error.. when disabling chatter and reloading the interface the buttons return to normal - I''ll post the error next time I'm online :)

    I too seem to be unable to pet-battle or hide the "social" button in the current release. this is how the pet-battle frame looks at the moment:

    In the most recent update, all of my class colored people are gone. My entire guild is now back to the default color when they used to be class colored. Any ideas?

    It appears that the social button is now called the "quickjointoastbutton" probably re-named as a part of the new 7.1 feature Quick Join (allowing you to join the in-progress queues of friends). I assume that button re-name is what's preventing Chatter from hiding the button.

    @JustDanceDM: Go

    The same issue here. All buttons are disabled/hidden, except the social button. There is no way to hide this button.

    Having trouble with the disable button (social in particular) and Chatter is wreaking havoc on pet battles. I have to disable Chatter and only Chatter for pet battle UI to work.

    Love this addon and am hopeful for a fix.
