Cellular is an instant messenger mod based on the functionality of an old version of ForgottenChat. Like many of the mods I wrote, Cellular removes a lot of features and bulk to make it simple and robust.


Basic window with the default chat editbox.


Personalized appearance with tabs enabled.


  • Many appearance options
  • Simple incoming spam protection (for boss mods)
  • History log
  • A way to copy text
  • Reuse of the default chat editbox to avoid having to support every damn frame/addon dealing with links
  • SpamSentry support for spam protection
  • Tabs (as of 2.4)
  • ...and other basic IM features

How to use:

  • "/cellular" or right-click a window for options
  • left-click a window to toggle the editbox
  • shift-left-click and drag a window to move
  • left-click and drag bottom-right corner to resize
  • right-click a tab for show/close/options
  • middle-click a tab to close
  • hold ctrl and close any window/tab to quick remove from history
  • several convenient buttons (some require shift clicking for confirmation reasons)

Development note: Because there can be a lot of features relating to an IM mod, I'm not accepting features requests. I suggest either checking out similar mods. I am, however, open for bug reports and maybe options requests here.
