****Important Notice****

 

Blizzard has announced an LFG tool due to this Bulletin Board will be discontinued. Thank you all for the support 

 

Known Issues:

 

BM aka Black Morass showing up under Ramparts

    Go to settings -> search patterns -> make sure that only 1 language is checked

 

LFG Bar is gone

   In the settings you have to find something called "Display LFG Bar" you have to checkmark it then reload UI.

 

Dungeons showing up in the wrong place ie Black Morass

    Go to settings -> search patterns -> make sure that only 1 language is checked

 

Custom Search Pattern issues

    There is a bit of confusion on how it works which leads people to believe there is a bug. It basically works like this:

         1.  Languages + custom selected: this will result in using all of the languages default values AND anything that has been entered manually

         2. Only custom selected: it will override with the values have been entered. If fields were left blank then the value is blank

         3. Only 1 language selected: it will use the languages default values and ignore anything that has been entered

 

New Feature: 

New feature introduces  that helps organize lfg chat spam.

/gbb chat organize/clean

It will create a new chat tab that has all the spammy lfg channels, it also removes those channels from your default chat tab and it will enable chat notification. This makes all the lfg spam be in a single chat tab that you yourself never have to open. The add-on will do the filtering and notify you on the default chat tab once a match has been found. Or you can just open the add on and see the organized requests. 

 

GBB provides an overview of the endless requests in the chat channels. It detects all requests to the classic dungeons, sorts them and presents them clearly way. Numerous filtering options reduce the gigantic number to exactly the dungeons that interest you. And if that's not enough, GBB will let you know about any new request via a sound or chat notification. 
Currently, English, German, French and Russian dungeons are recognized natively. But it is easily possible to adapt GBB to any language.

 English

 

TBC Filter Options

Usage

GBB searches the chat messages for dungeon requests in the background. To whisper a person, simply click on the entry with the left mouse button. For a "/who" a shift + left click is enough. The dungeon list can be filtered in the settings. You can also fold this by left-clicking on the dungeon name.
Old entries are filtered out after 150 seconds.

NOTE: If file doesn't download just go to the "File" tab and download from there

This is just an update adding TBC support to an abandoned add-on.

With the addition of support for TBC, probably introduced a ton of bugs.

Please provide feedback on having separate panels for classic and tbc dungeons. With the addition of support for TBC, probably introduced a ton of bugs so comment on that too (50/50 on falling on deaf ears)
