ChatPlus is a plugin designed to improve all areas of chat in LoTRO.
If you are a raider, it lets you display flashing notifications, so you don't miss a message from someone in your raid, or more importantly miss some loot in your pending list
. If you are a RPer, it allows you to automatically rename characters that it detects do not fit with lore, and click on names when they are mentioned in chat.
If you like emphasis, ChatPlus lets you send messages that are different colours and underlined, as well as providing the ability to remove this formatting from incoming messages.

Places LFF and Trade messages in the correct channels when people put them in world
1.1(23/9/19) - Improved speed, now should work fine when items are linked in chat. If it is still a bit laggy, you may have to disable loot channels in the plugin settings and reenable them in the chat window settings. Now sorts LFF and Trade messages in to the correct channels. Now you have to put @<playername> followed by a space to tag them. When first loaded, the window now displays in the middle of the screen.
1.0.2(16/8/19) - Quick fix to reduce lag issues when displaying items. This means no processing is done on text with items in as well, working on a better, long term solution.
1.0.1(4/8/19) - Removed issue where cursor jumps to end
1.0(1/8/19) - Initial Release
