Cellular  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.001
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:
    ...\WTF\Account\<Account Name>\<Server Name>\<Character Name>\SavedVariables\Cellular.lua

I'd need more information to help track down the issue. So far I've been unable to reproduce it. Can you reproduce this error at will? What other addons (especially chat related addons) are you using? Does it only impact bnet whispers, or any form of replies? What settings are you using for cellular?

I'm not a very cool person though, so I don't have many friends to test replying to messages.

On another note; is anyone else still having issues? Mine has been working like a charm, but I do not use Prat.

I can definitely re-produce at will, it happens everytime I receive a whisper. And it's not just b.net friends, it happens with guildies and random people as well. Additionally, with R bound to chat reply, R never works and when it is bound to re-whisper, it won't work for responding to the first message received, but if I click the person's name and respond, pressing R on subsequent replies works. I'm sort of confusing myself here, so I apologize if I am not very clear.

I am using ElvUI which does modify chat, so it may very well be the issue. The author of that isn't super helpful if you're using an addon that isn't part of ElvUI though, so I'd like to confirm it's an Elv problem before going to him.

I'm not sure which settings are relevant, but I think the only changes I have made from the default settings are to enable "use tabs" and "editbox top anchor". If you need to know about anything else, let me know!

I don't have a ton of friends to test with either. Since you're so kindly willing to troubleshoot with me though, I could message you my battletag if you need assistance testing.

Okay, the reason pressing R does not work the first time when R is bound to re-whisper is because there is a fundamental difference between Chat Reply and Re-Whisper.

Chat Reply responds to the last person who messaged you.
Re-Whisper responds to the last person you messaged.

I'll have to look into the code more to try to isolate this, but unless someone else can confirm this bug as well, I'm thinking the recent update resolved the Prat/BNet issues, and your issue stems from something else.

Sure, feel free to PM me your battletag and we can try to isolate the problem.

Well, that makes sense why R is behaving that way! I'm pretty dense sometimes. Battletag sent in PM, thank you so much for all of your assistance!

Perhaps I am just missing it.... but is there a way to have Cellular stop putting whispers in the default chat frame as well? I have the addon to avoid this in the first place. If it's important to know I'm also using Prat 3.0 for my normal chat window.

You can do this as part of the default interface. Right click the tab on the top of the default chat frame and choose "Settings." Then uncheck the box next to "Whisper."

I've used this addon for over 4 years now & can't live without it while I play WoW. But the past year or so, I noticed you can't copy whispers from your RealID friends. Is it another addon blocking it or Cellular just doesn't do that?


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.

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

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.

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..
