Cellular  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.002
by: totalpackage [More]
Cellular is an instant messenger mod (for only whispers) based on the functionality of an old version of ForgottenChat.

YouTube Intro



Features:
  • Many appearance options
  • History log
  • A way to copy text
  • Reuse of the default chat editbox
  • Whispers shown in separate windows or a tab-based single window
  • Should work with most spam filter mods
  • ...and other basic IM features


How to Use:
  • "/cellular", check Interface Options->AddOns, or right-click a window for options
  • Left-click a window to toggle the editbox
  • Left-click a tab to activate it
  • Shift-left-click and drag a window to move
  • Shift-left-click and drag bottom-right corner to resize
  • Right-click a tab for show/close/options dropdown
  • Middle-click a tab to close
  • Hold ctrl and close any window/tab to quick remove from history
  • Several convenient buttons (some require shift clicking for confirmation reasons)


Warnings:
  • If you have history enabled and notice that Cellular is using a lot of memory, you should cleanup your history entries using Cellular's history options.
  • If you're experiencing crashing due to memory errors, disable and clear your history.
  • If you cherish your history, you can back up the saved variables file and then delete it. You can view it in any text editor later. The location of the saved variables file is here:

yea i've been using this mod religiously since wrath, i pretty much ignore all whispers out of spite if it isn't on. but i've noticed a few bugs, i didn't scroll down and read all the comments but i'll just mention them here:

it won't let me see my own text, when i respond to people, it won't even show me typing to them it's all invisible. they can read and receive my messages tho, it will show up on battlenet etc. sometimes when i message people it opens up a new window when they respond, which isn't really a big deal compared to the first problem. but also there has been a persistent problem since cata where it won't let me use the copy and paste tool if it's a conversation via real id, even though it's open in the cellular chat interface it just only works if it's a person messaging me ingame via their character not battlenet.

ty for reading my wall of text, honestly i just wanna see my text again i love this addon.

Re: Cellular Error

I am also having the same error as Korami. I cannot see the whispers I send to bnet friends, but they see mine and I can see theirs. I'm typing blind, here!

Cellular Error

Hey, first I wanted to thank you for this great addon. Since the last update something seems to throw an error.
As long as I write to "normal" friends, everything seems fine. RealID/BnetID friends can write to me anytime. But as soon as I want to write to a RealID/BnetID friend, or try to answer one of them, I get following error:

This could use an update for the mentioned nuisances..second window aside, would really like to see Bnet whispers save in the same window when I check logs...instead all I can see is what I said.

Came here to report this. It's getting really annoying. A guildie will whisper me, say his name is Taxi. I get a chat window from him:

Taxi: Hey

I respond back, and I get a new tabbed window:

Taxi-Realm: Hey what's up?

The rest of the conversation continues in the new window, most of the time.

RealID & BattleTag

Cellular is really great for common whispers and I appreciate all the maintenance you've done.
Though it still doesn't correctly log incoming R/B (RealID and/or BattleTag) whispers in a feasible way for me.

When I hide a relevant cellular frame and that same R/B account whispers me again, most of the times I only get to see my own outgoing messages in the displayed history (the one that gets loaded automatically).

Most of the incoming messages are being logged too but not annexed to the appropriate names (or the outgoing messages), instead they appear in the history as either "Unknown" or "Unknown (Cherrycola)" or, though only for the current session until the next relog/reload, even the actual "R/B (Charname)" combination, none of which get loaded into the cellular frame.

I understand that the R/B API as well as the data returned by it, have changed rather drastically when it was new and it's a bit uneasy to work around those changes.

Now that they've been relatively unchanged for a while, here's a thought:
  • Save the actual R/B account names instead of their temporary IDs (those like Kf42|k etc), preventing the "Unknown" confusion.
  • Save all whispers from the same R/B in a way that they appear as one single history item.
    Then either don't save the character names at all - or add an option to display the character names in the cellular frame, in addition to the R/B account names. (Personally, I would even like an option to display the character names only, and completely omit the display of R/B account names, except for the frame's or tab's title.)
Seeing that all the information needed is already being either displayed (R/B account names) or saved (character names), it should be possible to save the account names as well and add an option to display either one or the other or both.
The result of this could be a Cellular that's much more practical for RealID/BattleTag whispers.
Unless I'm essentially missing something..

Bumping this since it was never answered and still isn't working. Since Karnmak helped me edit the lua to make Cellular and ElvUI play nicely together, the only issue I have now is that I cannot click on links in whispers in order to cut and paste them. Doesn't work with RealID or non-RealID whispers.
I really hope this gets fixed sometimes ...

In the meantime I copy the URLs with Elephant which I'm using anyway.

Is there anyway to maybe add a sound that comes through the master channel for everytime I get a whisper?

Thank you & keep up the great work!
This was a known issue since RealID first came out. At the time, RealID kept changing and was not feasible to record in the history...where the copy and paste feature gets it data. I'll look at it again soon.
