    @kagaro I keep checking and rechecking the disable buttons module, but my chat frames keep resetting anyway. Anything I should look at?

    v1.2-2-g8bd5086 When someone comes online or wins an achievement, the name cuts off the last letter. So it says [Johndo] and not [Johndoe] has come online. [Johndo] has earned the achievement and it should be [Johndoe] has earned the achievement. Thanks for a very nice mod

    A suggestion for future versions:

    Now that the chat frame buttons may be more useful in the future, how about an option to scale those buttons (or create a smaller, minimalist option for the button set). My current UI hides them, but since the social button may become useful, it would be cool to have a smaller version of it that fits better into a minimalist UI.

    Thank you for the great addon.

    i figured out that if i unchecked and rechecked the "enable disable buttons" option under "disable buttons" that the chat frame does not readjust itself when you reloadui, i reloaded my ui like 2x to be sure it would stay but its seems to be working so far.

    The addon is still moving to the right and moving up from the bottom of the screen like its making room for the blizzard chat box and the blizzard chat arrows.

    Found 2 odd bugs/issues:

    Issue 1: The Real ID popup window is interfering with the chat window placement and saved positions. The Real ID window is offset a bit to the left of the main chat window, so if you like to have your chat window all the way to the left, at the very least, the chat window is moved over far enough when you log back in to allow the complete Real ID popup to show. (I can provide SS's if needed).

    For those of you having issues with all your chat windows completely resetting, double check and make sure that your chat-cache.txt file in your character's named folder (
    World of Warcraft\WTF\ACCOUNT NAME\Server Name\Character Name\) is not set to read-only or locked. Mine was, and aside from the previously mentioned issue with the Real ID moving my main chat window,one I unlocked it, the rest of my chat windows positions were saved properly.

    Finally, an odd bug. I had my text input box location set to Top. Once I had typed in some text, and sent it out, I was unable to click on anything the chat input box had been over, such as the chat window tabs. When I tried, the chat input box would open instead.

    P.S. Anyone remember how to make the chat tabs fade completely out except when you mouse over them ? I had set up my UI to do that, and now its not. For the life of me, I can't remember how to do it again.

    Not sure this is an issue with chatter but i figured i'd toss it out there just in case.

    Basically after a reload or log out and back the chat frame is not saving position below a certain point. After testing with the default frame there appears to be a threshold that the frame can not be lowered past. This is the same in both classic and IM style.

    With the addon enabled you can place the frame as desired but after reload or log in its bumped up above the threshold.
