BasicChatMods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v7.41
by: funkydude [More]
Type /bcm to configure BasicChatMods, a basic and modular approach to chat customization.

By default BCM will allow you to drag your chat frames to the very edge of the screen, the remaining customization is done in BCM's modules which can be enabled or disabled at will.

A few of the current modules include:
  • Button Hiding
  • Channel Name Customization
  • Chat Copy
  • Font Customization
  • Chat Frame Justification
  • Player Name Customization
  • Real Id Class Coloring
  • Sticky Customization
  • Tell Target
  • Timestamp Customization
  • URL Copy

Class Colors: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click chat frame tab > Settings > Tick Boxes
Combat Log Timestamps: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click combat log tab > Settings > Formatting > Show Timestamp. Repeat this for every combat log, e.g. "Self", "Everything", "What happened to me?", "Kills".
v7.41: Remove LibChatAmbiguate, fix highlight module name trimming.

Re: Re: Pressing up arrow no longer supported?

I'm thinking it might have to do with '#' out the 'editbox.lau'? I don't like it at the top though

No longer supported?

nibHideBlackBar

Ey wonderfull chat addon you got here, but I have a little question. I usually use a addon called nibHideBlackBar but that isn't working with BasicChatMods. Is there anyway to remove the black bar a other way or to make this addon work with BCM?

Kudos to the creator.

This add-on reminds me of how much fun I have coding at work, and how much I do actually enjoy my job. :P

Why don't you just open your bags at the AH, click the search box, then shift-click the item in your bags? It will paste the name of the item into the search box.

Alternatively you can just copy it before you open the AH window.
yes I know that. but say you don't have the item in you bag. lets say the glyphs

so I type

frost armor icy veins slow fall

into the chat bar.

I then open the AH and in the search box I type out one thing off my list I put into my chat bar.

when I start to type into the AH search bar the chat bar with my info close's

but its strange that I uploaded your new version today. on curse. and this morning before I updated it. it worked fine

thanks for that.


OK next question. this one hits to the heart.

OK. so I want to buy something from the AH. lets say wool and cloth.
before the update and forever. I would add it into my chat bar. then open up the AH and copy what I put into the AH from my chat bar.

but now say you have wool and cloth in your chat bar. and open up the AH when you go to copy the words you added in the char bar so you don't forget. into the AH search the chat bar closes/.

I hope that makes sense,

Looks like BCM is getting the blame incorrectly.

SHIFT+Page Down over the chat frame.

It's not a real ID whisper, it simply happens when you right click a whisper and select 'Move to whisper' or whatever it's called. It doesn't happen automatically. It applies to Real ID whispers and Real ID conversations too, though.
Looks like you'll just have to live with it, or not move your whispers to a new chat frame. This action creates a new chat frame on demand, which is otherwise non-existent. The current max chat frames is 10, these start at 11 and beyond. The button hiding script does it for the first 10 which exist at login, unlike this one.

It's probably fixable with some delving around but I'm not interested in the amount of code I'd need to do add, for something I don't use.
