pError  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 40100.5-Release
by: p3lim [More]
This addon is discontinued.


Description:
pError is a simple addon to filter out spam in the UIErrorsFrame.
Its designed to be robust and easy to use.
If you're not exactly sure about what it does, take a look at the screenshot to the right.


FAQ:
How do I filter more errors?
Simple, just use the '/perror' slash command to add error strings.
Example: '/perror spell is not ready yet'

This takes a long time! Can't I do this faster?
You can make pError listen to the UIErrorsFrame and put anything that shows into the database.
Usage: '/perror listen'

How do I remove error filters?
Just use the '/perror' slash command like you added it.

How can I see what errors I filter out?
Use '/perror list' and the saved list will be printed out.

How can I reset the whole list?
Use '/perror reset' to reset the database.

How can I remove all errors at once?
This addon does not do this, look for a different one.

i don't know why, but this just wont work for me anymore. i did a fresh install with 30100.17, deleting my old config and everything. i type "/perror error message" and it says it's added to to the list, but i still get the errors =(


EDIT: looks like the same problem ChaoisInc is having.

Did you try running this add-on alone?

RE: Spam not filtering

Found the addon conflicting with this. Oddly enough, it's _Corpse. Posting on their page as well.

Hello,

Is it possible to redirect the messages to say the chat frame, or just relocate the area that Blizzard decided to put the messages in?

Thanks!

There are other addons that does that job.
pError will filter out selected messages, and nothing else.

This is true, but they either have lacking features, are buggy, or flat out don't work. ErrorMonster no longer allows you to filter out errors (its all or nothing) and things like BigRed don't filter them, but put them in another frame entirely (and also is buggy, at least for me). Prat and Chatter's filtering options don't seem to hook into the UIErrorsFrame. If you know of any others that are working as intended, that would be great, otherwise, it looks like you're the only one out there interested in the UIErrorsFrame. XD

IMPORTANT:
Update to rev 19 before 3.2, if not you will lose your blacklist database!

pError...errors out on load.

v30100.19 (first time have tried the mod), USEnglish client/server, WoW 3.1.3 live. Log on and:

pError-30100.19\pError.lua:63: attempt to index global 'pErrorDB' (a nil value)

ErrorMonster actually does allow "filters", but they are limited. Can (in the Interface-Addons option section) choose to see or not see (or redirect to a Sink output) "error messages", "information messages" & "system messages". As well, can hide the messages from the three choices in combat or not.

Not the most detailed filtering, but it works.

Thanks for reporting, fixed in r20.
But please report bugs in the right place

From the ErrorMonster description on the site (and in-game): "Not only does it come with a significant set of default filters, you can of course add and remove filters at will." Which makes it sound like you can add your own filters, although nowhere in the options is this apparent, nor any clear place in the lua. There is also supposed to be a "berserk" option but I can't find that either. Its cool, I'm working on figuring it out myself, its a nice little challenge!

The only thing to figure out is that...the mod description hasn't changed since it first came out, but the mod itself has.

In the old pre-WoW 3.0, pre-Lich King days, you could set your own filters via slash commands in ErrorMonster. But in the current revision, there are *three* filters you can select in total (again, "Error messages", "Information messages" & "System messages"). Those three choices cannot be further altered other than choosing to see them in or out of combat and what Sink output to send them to.

Thus, pError here offers more flexibility (with more work) as you can specify any of your own text strings to filter. But pError filtered messages are no longer seen, they can't be redirected to a Sink output as ErrorMonster provides.

Different strokes, different folks.

As opposed to...the left place?

Normally do, did not have time yesterday. Thanks for the quick fix; pError works fine now.

Don't think there was ever a /perror all option.

Why was the "all" feature removed? I can't keep track of all the annoying red errors to write down to add. /sigh
