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.

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.

The 'new window/inline' option doesn't affect this directly because you can still choose to pop out a whisper into a seperate tab or window.

It happens with both classic and IM style, although with IM style, the regular editbox will show as well while with classic style it doesn't.

I'll be releasing a new (hopefully final) version of BCM soon, how about you PM me the translations.

I also noticed quite a while ago that your replacement strings for some channel names are off. You can see that in Haleth's screenshot, where General, Trade, GuildRecruitment and LocalDefense are not shortened. I fixed this locally by having the string set to "%[%d+%. General.-%]" so it catches the local area as well.
It would be awesome to have these localized as well, as these are not that many strings and it would really save (at least me) some time translating them on every update

Also, in case anyone wonders how to un-sticky the Battle.net whisper channel:
Code:
ChatTypeInfo.WHISPER.sticky = 0
ChatTypeInfo.BN_WHISPER.sticky = 0
in sticky.lua works like a charm

This is what a regular chat window looks like, as you can see it has no buttons to the side.



However in a seperate tab or window, it'll look like this:



As you can see the buttons aren't hidden.

Also, though while this is beyond what BasicChatMods does, when I hide the default transparent 'background' of the chat windows, it'll reappear in a special tab or window. It's the same principle I think.

Not sure what you mean, all buttons for every window should already be hidden. Are you sure you're using the latest BCM? Got a screenshot?

v3.70: NEW resize chatframe module. Allows you to resize chatframes to any Height/Width you like instead of those restricted by Blizz.
NEW now uses the Blizzard timestamp to also stamp any chat messages that Blizz misses, assuming you have it enabled.
ADDED some extra documentation to the buttons module explaining how to show certain buttons.

strange. if it wasn't in there before,. then i guess before this patch,. you could make the chat box. smaller

Honest, i want to show the arrows but don't know how.

I don't know if you're asking me to add '--' before some line or change f.Hide to f.Show or something.

So, at least to me, it's not very clear if you don't have any lua-knowledge.

Sounds like I edited my post too late.
Sorry funky! Been using your BCM for ages now. No matter what I try, I always come back on BCM

And I tried to configure yesterday night and couldn't sort anything out (guess I was too sleepy?), tried again this afternoon after posting and fixed everything the way I like it in like... 10 minutes?

Sorry again for my stupid post, dunno why I felt so lost yesterday night...

Most of them were changed to be sticky by default by Blizz, hence they were removed. But it should still be apparent what to do to turn Blizz stickies off... enter the same with the channel name = 0.

Eh, are you using the latest version..? It has documentation of what does what in it. Very obvious. As demonstrated below

Code:
--Hide the "Friends Online" count button
--Hide the chat shortcut button for emotes/languages/etc
Please don't tell me that's not obvious

That's Blizzard functionality. Interface>Social and change it from IM mode to Classic mode.

Like I've stated, you need to select the Blizzard time stamp, even if you already did. It will not take effect unless you re-select the timestamp from the config after *EVERY* time you modify it.
