ChatLinkIcons

Install

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 icons if the addon has seen that player in the current session.
  • RealID/BNet communication doesn't supply sufficient information to display uniform data for player links.
  • Talent links are currently unsupported as there is no API to take a TalentID from a link and get an icon for it. (Classic only)

 

Known Issues:

  • Compatibility with other chat addons isn't guaranteed. While I try to write hooks in a generic fashion to support other addons, I can't account for everything they can do.
  • There's a bug with Blizzard's international fonts that causes misalignment of embedded textures.
