This mod by TomWolf allows you to automate the sending of messages to different chat channels, including the trade chat.
* Added Fizzwidget's Linkerator to the mix
Welcome to AnnounceIt - Trade!
This addon lets you automate the sending of messages to different chat channels, including the trade chat. This can be very helpful when you often have a lot of things that you want to buy or sell.
You send your saved messages via a menu, either in Fubar or from a minimap button.
Each saved message can consist of up to 5 lines of text.
This edition also lets you easily link items, both in the saved chat messages and in normal chat, by simply typing the item name or id within [ and ] brackets.
Other ways to use this addon includes saved messages for guild recruitment or sending information to your raid/pvp members that you often repeat.
Much of this could be done by just using macros but that would quickly take up a lot of your macro slots and also it would clutter your screen with buttons.
1. First thing I did was fixing a bug in AnnounceIt that gave me and others an errormessage on startup.
2. Then I added support for Trade chat.
3. Thirdly I added the addon Linkerator to the mix to be able to easily add item links to messages.
This wonderful addon was created by velgiant early 2007. I havn't gotten word from him if he approves of my trade version or not so keep your fingers crossed. ;)
Gazmik Fizzwidget is one of my idols in addon creations and I suggest you check out his other little gadgets as well.
Linkerator is simply a marvelous addon that stores a database with item links for items you encounter wherever you go and let you type create item links simply by typing the item names within brackets [ like these ]
This works well for us since it means we can simply do that in our saved messages and as long as you've seen the item in question Linkerator will automaticly create the item link when you post to chat.
