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.

Should now be fixed in v4.10

Thank you, it works well. One thing though, the only thing this mod doesn't do is give me font outlines for my chat box. Is that possible for you to implement?

Is it possible to hide the input window, so that it only appears if I make a entry?

Edit: Found it, option in the standard blizzard sociability window.

Game crash.

Hey Kicko, my game crashes when I click on the background of the copy frame.

Expr: (code == CODE_NEWLINE || code == CODE_PIPE || code == CODE_INVALIDCODE) || code == CODE_HYPERLINKSTOP || code == CODE_EMBEDDEDTEXTURESTOP

This is in the beta, have not tried live. It happens repeatedly every single time I try to copy chat.

Those 4 don't have brackets in them "[]". Check out globalstrings.lua in WoW's FrameXML.

Meh it's beta, if it's still an issue closer to release I'll look into it.

Thank you for this mod. The best of the bunch, imo.

I'm sorry if this has been asked already, but any way to remove the background blizz graphic on the editbox? Leave it just as thin outline?

edit: found a workaround

Suggestion =)

Hi =)

I have been using your chat mod for a long time now as I love that it is so lightweight and well.. basic =P So a very big thank you for a great mod!

I was wondering if you would consider including an option to add an outline to the main chat font. Every time I update, I have to add a few lines of code that I had to google for hours to find. I love messing about with lua but I can only just about change colors, position etc Since the patch there has been many updates and I have had to add this every time =P You would make me sooo happy if this was added permanently and I am sure many other ui designers would like this option.

This addon would be totally complete for me then and make an already fantastic addon even better!

Agreed. Outlined font would be very nice.

I started using this mod recently and I'm very happy with it.
There is only one function I'd like to see that it currently doesn't have.

Some time in may blizzard patch changed the way chat settings are saved, and now they're saved server side. Since I have two separate computers that I can play on (one is a laptop), the positioning of the window changes depending on which computer I'm on. This is as you can imagine extremely annoying cause i have to readjust it every single time i switch.

Someone on plusheal forums was kind enough to give me a script I can make into a mini addon to reapply my window position settings every time I log in/reload UI but I fear it might clash with BCM. Any advice you could give me? I could post the script if you're willing to just look it over and tell me if it will give me problems with bcm?

It's listed in this thread:

Also I dug up a mini addon someone made for it as well:

How would I go about to disable the flashing chat tabs, for instance when I'm getting a whisper?

I've been googling it and found this:

FCF_FlashTab

But I have no idea how to use it properly.
