Trade Secretary: Privy Cork
Version: 30400--0.1.04
by: Mike-N-Go [More]
Trade Secretary: Privy Cork
A light, automatic spam blocker for the trade channel


As of May 20, 2009: This addon is unsupported for the time being. AddOn authoring was only a hobby of mine. Mike-N-Go is not currently playing WoW, thus not creating or maintaining mods for WoW. If someone wishes to submit a patch for one of my mods to WoWInterface, you may within the bounds of the license bundled with the mod.



Recent Changes and Important Information:
Version: 30400-0.1.04
Last update: 03-29-09
Requesting user feedback, and suggestions; do check if your suggestion is under "Future expansion, additions, planed features, etc " before you type it out, because it might already be in the works, unless you wish to expand on something listed there.
If you find a bug, please make sure it is not listed under "Caveats, Known Bugs, etc." before submitting a report
If anyone has any suggestions on how to make the code or documentation better, or would like to help develop the project, please contact me, email or IRC preferred.
Additional and more extensive instructions are provided in the documentation or the included ReadMe.
Updates: Point your browser to http://www.wowinterface.com under "Trade Secretary: Privy Cork"
Note: This addon is based off of Funkydude's BadBoy. This addon is not meant as a replacement, merely a complement. Unlike BadBoy, the MO is not to stop gold spam, it is to stop spam that does not have a thing to do with trading.

Brief Description:
Are you tired of the trade channel being used as the privy (toilet) of your realm? Well, look no further! The purpose of this mod is to block as much of the irrelevant trade chat as possible. For example, if a trade message 'WTS', 'WTB', an item link, or any of the other 'allowtriggers' (in PrivyCork.lua), it will not be hidden.


About the Name:
Why is this called "Trade Secretary: Privy Cork" you ask? Well, this version of "Trade Secretary" is to make it easier to keep track of who can craft what, and would be the next installment of a future suite that gives one a secretary for their trading, and other secretary-like activities whenever I happen to make them.

Use:
This mod currently has no way to set settings in-game. It is either enabled, or disabled. For the settings there are, you open PrivyCork.lua to set them.

Tracking:
The mod has tracking of how many times someone sends a message that fails or passes, yet the display mechanism for this is under construction

Feedback requested, but not limited to:
Any errors in the mod
Ease of use

Installation:
After you decompress the file, copy the Trade Secretary: Privy Halt folder into your Interface/AddOns folder under your World of Warcraft Installation Directory.

Upgrading:
Simply overwrite the old file with the new one! Make note of any changes you made to your allowtriggers, as you will need to add them again. Make sure to read the updated version for any other upgrade problems.

A note to my fellow authors:
If anyone wishes to use more then a few lines of my code, I request you credit me by saying, "This product includes software developed by MikeNGo and Funkydude" somewhere as a comment, or in your documentation. Also, you must follow Funkydude's requirement's for using BadBoy. I also hope that anyone who would take the time to read my code, would take the time to send me an e-mail of what you think, or what can otherwise be improved.

Caveats, Known Bugs, etc.:
The blocker of reppeate messages implemented in v30400-0.1.02 is not working, I will be looking into this

Future expansion, additions, planed features, etc:
Sister addon for BG chat
An in-game toggle for the mod/settings
Tracking GUI

About the Version Numbers:
Version: xxxxx-x.x.xx ([interface number]-[major version].[sub version].[current release])
Interface number: Version of the interface the addon was most recently updated for, this number and the version number have no linear relationship with the latter clauses.
Major version: When the mod evolves to a state that is vastly different from the first distribution of the prior major version, this will be updated.
Sub version: Whenever the mod has new features added, or many minor tweaks, this number might advance.
Current release: The current reversion of the sub version, changed every time a new version of the mod is submitted to WoWInterface.com

Thanks for the update!
I think I ought to put in a LDB feed to toggle it.. I concur; it is hard sometimes to know if Privy Cork is on =D.

Re: Tooltips Changing

Originally posted by TazRulez
If I mouse over an ability, recipe, mailbox, etc and it brings up any form of a tooltip and someone links an item in trade chat, the tooltip changes to the linked item. I like this addon for the fact that it gets rid of the junk talk in trade and only shows what it was meant for, but with the tooltips changing the way it does, I have to have it disabled. If needed I can take 2 screenshots to show what I mean.
Fixed in r0.1.04, thanks for bringing this to my attention, TazRulez!

I have noticed the mouse-over tooltip on my client randomly fluctuate between what I moused over to something else, and it did not bother me too much, so I did not attempt to debug in the past. I think r0.1.03 and before are doing tooltip scanning incorrectly; I think the issue is how mouse-over tooltips are handled, and it would update the tooltip to the item my addon scans when seen in chat; look for an update in the upcoming days, I have put this on my todo list.

You really don't need descriptions like "(A spam blocker for the Trade channel)" in the title. There's a HUGE description field for that.
