ChainLink is a simple addon which adds URL and chat-channel hyper-linking to the chat frames. Nothing more, nothing less.


  • Converts URL links to colored (and optionally bracketed) hyper-links which, when clicked, are be added to the chat-frame's edit box for easy copying.
  • Converts channel names ('[Guild]', '[2. Trade]', etc) to hyper-links which can be clicked to open the chat-frame's edit box to that channel, much like Blizzard's name links for whispers.


ChainLink's options can be accessed through the command /chainlink (alias: /clink or /cl). You can change the link coloring, toggle link bracketing and reset the settings through this.
