BasicChatMods  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v7.4
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".
v7.4: Fix a bug where only the first popup window would have your settings applied and all other windows were left default.
Enable playernames module by default.
Misc fixes.

Lol, sry bout that been using another Chat addon for a long time and hadn't realized that it was a part of the game.

Great addon btw. Gives me everything that I want out of a chat addon while still being extremely minimalistic.

Sry again bout the stupid question lol.

if its not something that you want to add in i can understand that just would kinda make it easier to read imho if the names we seperated by their class color....the lvl thing would just be a perk

Great addon though...definately love how light weight it is while still giving great functionality.

Patch 3.3.5 Release

v3.59: Chat Scroll & Timestamps disabled in 3.3.5, implemented into the game. All modules now have 3.3.5 forward compatibility. Few TLD additions to URLCopy. Fix PARTY_GUIDE. Chat Copy icon moved for 3.3.5, also only shows when mousing over the chat tab (buggy) on 3.3.5, for now. EditBox no longer moved in 3.3.5 due to permanent tabs, might change this by hiding tabs manually. Next update after EU gets the patch...

Open the file "channelnames.lue" and look for the line:

"-- text = "|cff"..COLOR..lbrack..date(tformat)..rbrack.."|r "..text -- Remove this line to stop timestamps"

It should be on line 33. Just comment it out by putting "--" in front.

That should do it.

Hey i would like to change the default font to Franklin Gothic Medium but i have no real idea how lua works. I managed to get the font outlined and change the size but other than that i have no idea what i am doing.

I went to wowwiki to see if i could find any kind of help there and i found this:

font
String - path to the font file, relative to the WoW base directory.

While i generally know what that means i do not know the means of how to make it work.

Help D:

Could you add a context (right click) menu "Copy this line" thingy like in Prat?

The only thing I lack for a perfect chat addon without a hundred useless options

Any ideas to solve this error ?

"Message: Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2594: bad argument #1 to 'format' (string expected, got nil)

Hello

I used prat and chatter, but finally found the best: Basic Chat Mods
For me it is the best because it uses almost no memory and CPU.

The only thing I miss, is an thin outline ... because the chat is hard to read if you set a transparent background.

What lines of code can I add somewhere? Or could I make a module for it?
Might be interrested in an addon called NeonChat, it builds off of this one and I think it does what you're describing above.

For anyone like me wanting the new Party Guide shrunk down in size. I worked around it by switching the Party Leader and PL on line 55 in channelnames.lua from :

Code:
CHAT_PARTY_LEADER_GET = "|Hchannel:party|h[PL]|h %s:\32";
to

Code:
CHAT_PARTY_GUIDE_GET = "|Hchannel:party|h[PG]|h %s:\32";
After quite a few heroics I still haen't gotten any errors.

Possibly a serious bug

Hey I just downloaded and installed the updated BasicChat, have used the older version for months now.

Today however when I needed to submit an in game petition Basic chat mod apparently blocked me from submitting the ticket. I got a pop up message that it had blocked it and the ticket was deleted as well. I wasn't able to submit the petition until I had disabled the mod.

I was a little upset as I had used the copy feature to copy a name with those funky characters out of chat into the ticket and lost the spelling since the error forced me to disable/reload ui.
Kept popping up over and over with that message Disable or ignore but when I ignored it would pop up again.
I didn't get any message regarding what kind of error it was besides the pop up saying it had accessed something available only to blizzard and the disable/ignore button.

Hope you can figure out what this is about, I've disabled the mod entirely for now until I get this petition thing settled and can't really try to duplicate it until then.
