WIM (WoW Instant Messenger)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.6.18 (420)
by: sylvanaar [More]

WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) is a World of Warcraft addon which helps you to manage your whispers by making them into a classic instant messenger interface such as AIM, Yahoo and MSN.

With game play in mind, WIM has a large array of options where you can customize how WIM interacts during different situations, such as while you are in combat or in town talking to friends or selling your crafts.

Some of WIM's major features are:
-Tabbed or windowed messages
-History
-Filtering
-Fully customizable
-and more...

To keep up to date with WIM and its developement, be sure to visit http://www.wimaddon.com. WIMAddon.com is a great place to converse with the developers and users of WIM.

Workaround to bring back the Checkbox "Enable window fading effects." (and 2 more) in the WIM Options -> Display Settings:

Change CoreOptions.lua at line 360 from:
Lua Code:
  1. frame.menu.sub = frame.menu:CreateSection();
  2. options.AddFramedBackdrop(frame.menu.sub);
  3. frame.menu.sub:CreateCheckButton(L["Enable window fading effects."], db, "winFade");
  4. frame.menu.sub:CreateCheckButton(L["Enable window animation effects."], db, "winAnimation");
  5. frame.menu.sub:CreateCheckButton(L["Display item links when hovering over them."], db, "hoverLinks");

to this one:
Lua Code:
  1. frame.menu:CreateCheckButton(L["Enable window fading effects."], db, "winFade");
  2. frame.menu:CreateCheckButton(L["Enable window animation effects."], db, "winAnimation");
  3. frame.menu:CreateCheckButton(L["Display item links when hovering over them."], db, "hoverLinks");

Looks like there is an error with your Sub-Menu creation, maybe you can take a look on it.

greetings, fuba

Pressing shift and clicking on a character name is opening up the /who results window instead of displaying in the general chat window - this behaviour stops when WIM is disabled. Any ideas how to fix? Cheers

ignore arrow keys in message box option GONE

this used to be an option in previous versions of wim. i'm not sure if this is a limitation that blizzard has enforced but it sure would be nice to go left and right through typed text with the arrow keys without using the ALT key.

thanks!

I'm having a weird issue where whenever I shift+click someone's name in chat, it opens up the Who List in the Social window instead of just displaying the info in the chat log. Anyone know what's going on?

Wanted to say/Bug reports/missing functions

Thank you very much for this addon. It is one of my favorite and it is a tool that I absolutely love. Unfortunately, the new patch accidentally deleted mine the moment I walked through the dark Portal, and with it a few options seemed to have vanished or have been bugged.

I can no longer make the windows Opaque one hundred percent of the time, which I did because I often level, and have my mouse elsewhere instead of on the chat window. Now, if I'm not hovering over it with the mouse, they turn transparent.

Secondly, new chats or responses to chats do not seem to make the windows pop up. I'm not sure if this was an option, but if it was it's gone now. I remember it happening not an hour before (when it got deleted. T.T).

Thank you again for the addon, and I hope I didn't just add to your plate!

Linking to wrong armory

Hello, when I try to copy a characters armory profile link it sends me to the EU armory. It's a minor inconvenience, but I can't seem to find any related options in WIM's settings. Is this a bug or working as intended?

This has nothing to do with WIM. Another addon is whispering you that you dispelled a buff, if it seems to go away when you disable WIM it may be because you're not noticing the whispers in your chat frame, or maybe you have whispers disabled in your chat frame.

Hi! I was wondering if there's a way to suppress BNet's Real ID's whispers/conversations from popping up? I like the IM window system for normal in-game whispers (since I don't actually get a lot of them) but prefer the Launcher's IM system for when I'm talking to BNet friends during the game (since I can just minimize the IM (I play windowed) to the task bar until I'm ready to reply), since my friends tend to get chatty, but I don't like that it pops up in game, too. I've tried going through all the options and ticking off to not pop up but it still does it. I love this addon for normal in game whispers but not for BNet/Real ID friends. Is there a sure fire way to fix it so the BNet windows won't pop up?
