BasicChatMods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v7.48

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".

Yep. With an editbox open using the up/down arrows no longer scrolls through my list of recently typed messages. Holding Alt and using the arrow keys does scroll through them but this is the behaviour we are trying to avoid by using this mod.

Setting eb:AltArrowKeyMode to true in any of the files just makes the game ignore arrow presses while an editbox is open.

I tested earlier releases ( as far back to 7.2 ) and these old versions also do not work (they used to) which suggests a Blizzard change.

Could I allow it? Yes. Does it make sense? Not as far as I can see. You'd need to convince me of that.

A UI is meant to be consistent, I don't see why someone would want different fonts on different chat windows. Different alignments doesn't break consistency. For example, you might want a left, middle, and right alignment for placing your chat windows on the left, middle, and right hand side of the screen respectively.

Any chance you could add a module to strip/stop -RealmName displaying from same realm players?

The default UI already does that as of 5.4.7.

I noticed that you changed the chatcopy frame to readonly. While that sounds sensible, there is a huge issue with that: I can't copy text when I'm not allowed to use my keyboard to do so. (I'm on a Mac, if that makes a difference.) CMD+C is not accepted "input" so the whole feature is useless

Well, I wouldn't personally but I can imagine such a use case: One might be using a fancy font for chat (to make roleplaying more appealing or who knows) but the combat log should still be "readable" in a basic font.
