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".

Is it possible to have incoming and outgoing whispers be different colors? If not, is that something you would consider adding in the future? Great addon, btw. I switched from Chatter and the memory difference alone is ridiculous.

Hello,

when I use double-click for new whisper/real-id tabs (Interface -> Social), the copy edit box doesn't appear. How to change that?

Keep up your good work!

If you're talking about the new windows that are created, they will not be supported, since they aren't created until they popup. Also because I don't use the Blizz popup feature.

If Blizz doesn't let you do it then no. I will not be adding a separate option for that.

Let me begin by thanking you for this mod. I was wondering if there was anyway to remove the edit box textures completely, so I can attach a KGPanel that is more in theme with my UI?

The posterior creation explains it. Thank you for enlightening me

This isn't something I encountered on the PTR and will have to wait until EU deployment for me to test.

Real-ID whispers, incoming or outgoing, do not show up anymore even with the current version.

Hmm didn't test the RealID stuff on PTR, try v6.62 and let me know if that fixes the error/missing chat.
