What now? =======
Enter '/cleanchat' or bind a key to show the configuration window. There you can enable/disable the addon functions.
If you choose to enable the option "Show level" and/or "Use class colors" there a few things to note: * The level and class of your party / raid / guild / friends is always known. * To show levels and apply class colors to random chat people, you have to allow the addon to use the /who command. If the random is first seen by the addon then it will initiate a /who query, so the second time the random types a message the information can be applied. If a lot of chitchat is going on, the addon can not keep up because a /who command is only allowed every three seconds. But sooner or later the information is gathered. Keep in mind that the level information afterwards will not be updated as long as the random is known by the addon. * If you save the collected information about randoms and you don't see a name for three days all information about the name will be deleted. The collected information are stored per character. * If you disable the save option, the name information will be lost after a hour or on logout.
Here is a list how the addon decides what color a name gets (read to fully understand colorize options, but not required): 1. If 'classcolors' enabled and the class is known then it uses the Blizzard class colors. 2. Otherwise, it uses the guild color if a guild member and guild color is set. 3. Otherwise, it uses the friend color if a friend and friend color is set. 3. Otherwise, it uses the party color if party member and party color is set. 4. Otherwise, it uses the the raid color if raid member and raid color is set. 5. Otherwise, it uses unknownclass color if 'classcolors' enabled, class is NOT known and unknownclass color is set. 6. Otherwise, it uses grey color if 'classcolors' enabled, class is NOT known and unknownclass color is NOT set. 7. Otherwise, it uses 'others' color if that color is set. 8. Otherwise, it generates a color for that name if enabled. 9. Otherwise, use Blizzard default color.
Notes / Tips / More details ================= * If you want just random colors, only enable 'Use colorize names...'. * If you want one color for all people then set only 'color for others'. * If a name needs a 'random' color, the addon generates a color based on the hashvalue of the name. This means that a name has always the same 'random' color. * To highlight custom text in chat messages open 'HighlightConfig.lua'. I prepared a few examples there to get you started.
