The trade channel version of LFGForwarder, which will let you see trade channel wherever you are.
The command is /tfw instead of /lfw
The LFGForwarder is here : LFGForwarder@Curse
Addon still don't working on EU-Burning Legion realm. ;(((((((
So what's the deal with this addon vs. "AllTradeForwarder"? ATF is sending a message through TFW that says it's "no longer being updated" and to swap to ATF, but it looks like TFW is recieving updates. It's going to be highly inconvenient to have people split between addons.
im glad to see that the changes i suggested were made to this addon to get it working again, but I will still point out as an author of a similar addon that this addon still suiffers from some big errors that have not been corrected. Main issue is that the addon will not show the correct realm of the sending party on connected realms. just to name one. but yah, glad to see you fixed it so it appears to work :)
I think that as long as trade messages are being forwarded, people are happy since this is supposed to be a pretty bare-bones addon. If you'd like to collaborate to make it more compatible with your addon, I'd be willing.
Can you please remove the message you're sending through the old TFW channel saying it's not being updated?
Stop spamming about your addon please !!!
He has now taken to posting in trade chat that your addon is broken.... which it's not b/c I saw that he posted in trade chat when while I was in raid :)
BTW - Thx for the update... much appreciated.
UPDATE: LOL... he is now spamming TFW with a pretty sketchy message as well:
"[TFW] [Volhard]: A New TradeForwarder has been released on Curse. AllTradeForwarder! Same great forwarding you come to expect but with extra options to additionally see other realms and more! this message was addon generated, please do not reply..."
Tradeforwader 2.21 not working for me
big thx here from ravencrest-eu aswell :D
Thank you so much for this wonderful addon!
big thx here from blackrock-EU. just told everyone to update. finally its working :D
I have committed a fix to this add-on. Unfortunately, it's not compatible with the old version, so everyone must update to see and forward trade messages. So make sure you tell everyone on your realm to update!
Made my day, thanks a lot !!!
Attempted the edits below but not clear from each post what *exactly* needs to be changed. Only getting an error msg from ppl saying to download that other forwarding addon, ATF (which I didn't care for at all). Can someone post explicit instructions on how to edit the code?
You may just paste this onto lua file (replacing what exists):
PS: I messed a bit with this code and might have forgotten something, if I it's not working let me know and ill edit this post.
is now working perfectly, thank you.
Please can you post that part of the code that you edited. I changed mine just like suggested:
elseif(event=="CHAT_MSG_CHANNEL") then local message, sender, language, channelString, target, flags, _, channelNumber, channelName, _, counter, guid = ...; if strfind(sender, GetRealmName()) then sender = strsplit("-", sender, 2) end if(ChatLink_Decompose) then message = ChatLink_Decompose(message) end if(strfind(channelName, "^"..L["LFG Channel"].." -")) then local color = GetClassColorByGUID(guid)
and not working. What do you mean by change the channel? thanks in advance
This is my change --> the difference with you is the ;
elseif(event=="CHAT_MSG_CHANNEL") then local message, sender, language, channelString, target, flags, _, channelNumber, channelName, _, counter, guid = ...; if strfind(sender, GetRealmName()) then sender = strsplit("-", sender, 2); end
if(ChatLink_Decompose) then message = ChatLink_Decompose(message) end if(strfind(channelName, "^"..L["LFG Channel"].." -")) then local color = GetClassColorByGUID(guid)
This addon communicate via an hidden channel and so if you don't change it and use the old one and somebody on your sever have tradeforwarder without the fix it doesn't work.
So for testing the fix I change this line TFW_CHANNEL_NAME="TCForwarder5IIll"; (I change the 2 by 5 xd). But now with this it only works for me xd
So the only solution I think is that the author change the code or another person make a fork and so change the communication channel like I've done.
ah... okay. Thanks so much for the help. I hope someone revives this addon, it is extremely useful :PThat AllTradeForwarder thing didnt work for me, its too complicated etc
Same for me AllTradeForwarder is too complicated and have lot of functionnality that I don't need...
I don't know if I can upload the file and so other people can download it ...
Try to get in contact wiht the author and ask for permissioin to keep it updated. Its so boring now when im out of town farmin or doing other stuff :(
