BasicChatMods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v7.47

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".
v7.47 - chatcopy: Revert disabling keyboard input.

v7.46 - another oqueue compatibility fix.

v7.45 - chatcopy: Disable keyboard input on the popup, scroll to the bottom of the popup automatically after opening.

Does BCM have the ability, or can it be added, to save ChatFrame position and sizing to the savedvariables file?

@Kabuto-eu, that's not an error, that's a taint. It may or may not be BCM, but rounding down the modules helps. Are you saying that this is guaranteed to happen? As I have nearly all modules active and have no such issue with joining raids.

If it is guaranteed to happen, can you start disabling more modules to get to the module causing the problem? Try with only the urlcopy module enabled and see if it happens. If it does, disable it too so that you have no modules active, and see if it still happens.

Modules active: Button Hide, Editbox, History, Scrolldown, Urlcopy.

The following bugs occur when joining a raid group and entering combat. This only seems to occur the first time the raid enters combat after creation. I executed a reload of the ui and was unable to repeat the error within that current raid.

One error of this type for each raid frame/member in raid:
Code:

Can you please do something about the way Blizzard changed the chat text?

If your in the BGs or a dungeon, it now says [Instance] or [Instance Leader] instead of [P], [PL], [BG] etc. and the color for all chat text in BGs and dungeons is the same as Raid.

v7 released:
  • Now supports on-demand chats frames (pet battle log, bnet popup whispers, etc)
  • Chatcopy functionality now coverts raid icons into {rt} symbols for easy copying
  • Timestamps are now clickable, clicking a timestamps shows a popup allowing you to copy a specific line of chat. Makes it easier to copy specific lines of chat than using the standard chatcopy functionality.

Although the new timestamp copychat functionality has been added, you can still copy multiple lines by shift-clicking a chat tab.

Re: Hmmm...?

Sounds like one of your addons is creating a frame at the bottom of the screen, something BCM doesn't do. I suggest you try with only BCM enabled.

Please note as of v6.9 copying chat is activated by shift-click, not double-click.

Yes that is the intended functionality, it is stated in the config panel.

If no one reports an issue, how will it get fixed? Unfortunately I've never had such an issue so I cannot comment personally other than tell you to "try and find out" :s
