nUI : InfoPanel [GuildChat]  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.4.2.17688
by: Xrystal [More]



This InfoPanel Plugin allows the user to have their guild related chat in a separate screen accessible as required. This one is using panel 15. Where identifiable it will use the last chat frame it used in an earlier game session otherwise it will use another window.

Tested Environments
nUI+ 5.07.42 with WOW 5.4.2

Slash Commands
Slash commands listed below will disable the plugin ready for removal of the addon. You can re-enable it again if you change your mind before logging out.

/nuigc enable - to enable it
/nuigc disable - to disable it

Localisations Available
enUS - US English
enGB - UK English
deDE - Deutsche ( German ) - Sanasi
esES - Espanol ( Spanish ) - jsr1976

If you wish to add your localization please post a copy of your translation with the localization code you use and I will endeavor to include it at the earliest convenience.

Known Caveats

You are limited to 10 chatframe windows ( including the combat log ) and thus it is suggested that when you first decide to use this addon that you see if there are some chat frames no longer required that can be removed.

Try adding the line
ChatFrame_AddChannel(gcframe, ""CHANNEL"");
in there as well as I think that handles any channel status messages too.

Adding this line above the ChatFrame_AddMessageGroup lines with your specific custom channel name it will automatically tick the channel box and will receive the messages from the moment you log in. I won't add it by default though as the Chat plugin works regardless as a second display of chat messages.

ChatFrame_AddChannel(gcframe, "nUI");

Just replace nUI with the name of your custom channel and repeat as needed for each channel you want to keep activated.

WoW, thanks for such a quick response, and your efforts in testing it too.

Yes, it lets you set them, but then forgets them as soon as you log out. I tried adding them into the lua file along with the "standard" channels, but that also didnt work.

I am going to try your idea when I get back home and see how that works.

One question, whether or not this is something for your addon or another on, this is great for adding "normal" channels, but is there something that can be done to include my own channels ie channels 4 - 9?
Hmm, not sure. Does it let you set the channels but just doesn't save them ? If so, try the [Chat] plugin which saves your channel changes.

I haven't played with custom channels myself so I am honestly not sure how they work. I will have to test it on the nUI guild server which has a chat channel and see what happens there.


Edit:
Okay, been testing this awhile and have finally figured out what you can do to get it to work rofl.

I won't add it by default though as the Chat plugin works regardless as a second display of chat messages.

You can change GuildChat's chat frame settings to include whispers for that play session. However, this addon was designed specifically so that people could keep all guild chat in an accessible window. I have whispers in another infopanel but if its just for fights like that just change the setting when you log in and it should work fine till you log out.

The other option is if you personally, want to permanently have whispers with guild chat, take a look at what I did for the whispers addon and add that change to the guild chat addon. The could should be almost identical and so easy to track the differences.

Is there anyway i could get tells put into this frame as well? When I'm downing Lady Deathwhisper and I get a tell it would be much easier to look to the right after the fight than scroll 20 pages up through DBM spam to find the tell.

Thanks.

That was actually mentioned in the nUI Forums a while back to institute a guild info frame to contain that sort of information. At the time I had no account active but now that I have I can look into what is involved and see if I could rig one up.

Oh wait. Rofl. It was one you posted a ways back.

GMOTD and Guild logo

Hi,

This isn't exactly what your info panel is designed for but I was wondering if perhaps you would be interested in looking into making one where there are only 2 items.

A logo background for the guild
Guild Message of the Day display - maybe a configurable text area as well?

Thanks.

After a clean install of wow ( well I cleared out WTF, WDB, Cache and Interface Folders ) then installing just the following addons :

Arcana_ExperienceBroker
ChocolateBar
Decursive
nUI
nUI_Config_LDB
nUI_InfoPanel_Decursive
nUI_InfoPanel_GuildChat
nUI_InfoPanel_MagePorts
Prat-3.0 and Related folders
Skada and Related folders
Volumizer

Very minimal and it works fine. The only problems you may have with multiple chat windows is if you set up multiple windows in nUI to anchor onto one or the other frames and then drop nUI. Once nUI is removed it cannot forsee this and remove anything that had been adjusted for it.

If your problem seems to be multiple windows just close all but General and CombatLog and let GuildChat create the window it wants.

Hmm, oh yeah, sorry, forgot it isn't as simple to add an image on these comment pages. Try using the image link. It might be big enough for me to see what you are talking about. If that doesn't work don't worry about it. I'll try and log in over the next few days and test it out myself.
