ChatLinkIcons adds icons to links in chat similar to ChatIcons with all original code and support for all player links. Even players outside of your party/raid.

ChatLinkIcons also integrates with Pawn for more utility. Links for items that are upgrades will show with a green upgrade arrow next to the link. This can be turned on/off in the options and requires Pawn to be installed and loaded for this feature to be available.

 

The following limitations apply:

  • Player links from system messages such as notices of friends/guildmates logging in will only display links if the game client had received a chat event or a combat log event fires involving that player.
  • RealID communication doesn't supply sufficient information to display uniform data for player links.
  • Unit links in the combat log that point to an NPC or pet do not have icons associated with them.
  • Talent links are currently unsupported as there is no API to take a TalentID from a link and get an icon for it.

 

Known Issues:

  • To combat taint with the Blizzard Communities frame, this addon uses Blizzard's MessageEventFilter API. This is notorious for being broken in 3rd party chat replacement addons.
  • There's a bug with Blizzard's international fonts that causes misalignment of embedded textures.
