Review: WoW Insider
Filters the trade channel and /yells so that any individual message is only displayed ONCE every XX seconds, where XX is a user-settable number with a default of 600 seconds (10 minutes). Repeats are filtered out, as long as the text is similar and it's been less than XX seconds since the last identical message was shown.
TradeFilter does not only filter trade but has the ability to filter General, LookingforGroup, Say and Yell channels all which are configurable through the blizzard options panel. TradeFilter has a set of patterns for trade channel and separate set of patterns for all other channels, or "base" channels as we will call them. This allows the user to define what patterns may be good for trade but not other channels and vise versa. The user also has the ability to add patterns of their own to be matched against for both trade and "base" channel filters.
This addon allows you to right click a players name in chat to create an armory link which can be pasted into a browser window. Will create correct links for US and EU based players
including when the name contains special (accented ) characters.
TabAlerts shows activity for docked ChatFrames.
ChatFrame tabs can have specific message-type filters set on them from the default UI. TabAlerts gives you the option to listen for certain message types - when these message types are triggered, the appropriate tab will begin flashing to alert you to new activity.
Button Bar for opening chat messages of each type.
Adds icons to links in chat.
Plays sounds based on events in chat.
This addon shows you the name of the main character when one of your guildmates chats using a known alt. This is done by scanning the guild roster, looking for the name of a main in the player note of an alt. Many guilds already do this just as a matter of record keeping, so this addon works right out of the box. The names show up in parenthesis after their alts name like this:
[Bravehearth (Pitchifus)] whispers: Hey, is the download ready yet?
LinkWrangler will allow you to open multiple item link windows from text links in the chat window. Ever been asked to compare items from the chat window for someone? Sitting there clicking back and forth between the two links, trying to remember the statistics of each? Ever want to look at multiple items as they blaze by you in the chat frame only to find out that the other links have long since disappeared by the time you are done with the first? This is the addon for you!
Watches chat messages you type, highlighting misspellings. Misspelled words may be right clicked to obtain a list of replacement suggestions.
Colors the chat input and chat border to match the chat you are about to write.
Hides the "learned/unlearned" messages when switching dual specs or re-speccing yourself or your hunter pet. Although not respec related, SilentRespec also allows you to hide the earned/lost titles messages mainly because of the 'patron/matron' spam in certain areas and with certain trinket effects. The functionality of the addon should work for all locales but the options window currently has no translations.
Automatically scroll to the bottom the the chat frame after a specific amount of time.
Adds a slash command and key binding for whispering your current target as well as a slash command for whispering the last person you whispered.
Watches for the online/offline message seen in chat when RealID friends, regular friends and guild members logon/logoff and displays it in the UIErrorsFrame. The message will be the class color of the character coming online or going offline. RealID friends that logon will have their toon name (and realm name if different from the player's realm) displayed after their real name in the message. Plays a more distinguishable sound for RealID friends and regular friends. RealID friends in a client other than WoW will have their client shown in the logon message.
