About Whisp

Whisp by Anea

Makes chatting fun again!

  • Ever lost track of the dozen conversations you were having simultaniously?
  • Ever found out you missed important tells that you got mid fight?
  • Ever wanted to know what person X was saying to you an hour ago?

Then Whisp is just the thing for you!

Whisp keeps track of your recent conversations and displays them in a pane above the chatbox when you reply. Whisp also comes with a LibDataBroker (LDB) plugin or Mini-map button that allows you to quickly review all conversations.

Broker or Mini-map commands:

  • Left-click icon - whisper last sender
  • Right-click icon - open configuration options
  • Click name - whisper that person
  • Shift-click name - delete that person and their history
  • Ctrl-click name - open chat history frame


  • Unzip the file into your 'Interface/Addons' folder.


  • Automatic popup pane that shows your current conversation
  • LDB and Mini-map plugin to quickly review all recent conversations
  • One-click system to reply to recent conversations
  • Full history of each conversation can be reviewed / copied in a separate log window
  • Full customization of Whisp user interface
  • Chatter support for appearance settings and some formatting
  • Remembers # of whispers recieved per person


  • The conversation pane will automatically show when you reply to someone
  • You can set the options of the pane and the addon by rightclicking the pane or the Broker/Minimap icon
  • Alternatively use "/whisp" to open the options screen
  • If you have alot of whispers you can set a max height for the tooltip in the options and then it will be scrollable.

Special thanks:

  • To Aery for unlimited testing-support
  • To NightOwl for his translation to zhTW
  • To Morgalm for his initial work on the LDB plugin.

Most people did not like the direction I was taking Whisp in. It is understandable. Reverting back and just going to share my addon with Guild mates. Have a good day

    Check out SoDWhisper as an alternative, friends. It caries on the spirit of the original Whisp and includes some fantastic new featuers!

    first at all,it's a good add-on.
    but Color Names by class is doesn't work for me..i'm a  chinese user... 

    (i'm not good at english,)

    Please don't just share the add-on with guildies. I loved the direction you were taking the add-on. I was using it heaps more. You'll find the silent majority liked it. It's only the 'majority' of whingers and complainers that didn't like it (which will only be a small amount of people). But they will usually complain about anything that changes. Don't take it to heart. This is YOUR add-on. You do what you want with it. I appreciate the development that goes into an add-on and that you have been willing to share the add-on with us.

    This is an awesome addon. One of my must-haves.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    If you liked the updates to whisp go to SoDWhisper on curse.  Will be updated there for his guild and anyone who liked it.

  • #174

    Thanks! SoDWhisper installed :)

    I noticed in the change log you are just going to share the add-on with Guildies from now on because people were/are complaining about the direction the add-on was going in.  I hope that doesn't mean no more Whisp updates?  It is your add-on and you should do what you want with it and if people don't like it they don't have to use the add-on.  Their problem not yours.  Please clarify if it actually does mean no more updates please as it will be very disappointing if this add-on doesn't get updated/maintained anymore.  Thanks for an awesome add-on and I hope you keep up the good work and I hope I just misunderstood what you said?

    Thanks in advance

    I hope you did not take the feedback of the few that were making noise as "most".  Typically only the most displeased will take the time to share their feelings.  Most of us out here were happy to see updates to Whisp, and it seemed to be going in a positive direction.  I was quite happy with the way the addon was working currently.

    Please tell us where to find the new addon.  Having an updated addon with Whisp type functionality would be great.

    Good luck to you.

    Morglam doesnt have an account , and has no plans of updating the addon. When I asked him if it was going to be a dead addon at your leaving he responded with this

    Mostly dead I guess as I have no account anymore at all.  Don't play thus I can't test:(  Sorry to hear it didn't work out.

    Love this addon so much! Thank you for keeping it running :)

    I have noticed as of late that the memory usage for Whisp is pretty bonkers. Right now I'm in a low populated area, no combat, etc, and Whisp is using 39.2mb of memory. I do not have any conversations/whispers running either. Any thoughts on this? The next highest addon I have is Gatherer which uses 9mb. Thank you for your thoughts and hard work!

  • #144

    It is possible that it is the first addon loading the ace3 libraries needed to run many addons and that is why the usage is high.

    this is associated with oQ , I just cut off all the oQ spam

    Your addon is very good, but there is a small problem, when BNET option is enabled, an error message appears often, can not find XXX online players (English may not be the same but the meaning is the same), and I have a small suggestion.can you add audio?When someone gives you a private message with audio prompts, thanks!

    (Sorry my English is not good, I hope you can understand)

  • #140

    I need the full error message please.

  • #138

    Hi! Could you please add LibQTip-1.0 as an optionaldep in the .toc file? Otherwise it won't load that library before.

  • #135

    Your welcome I also added a toggle to use BNET names under the history section:)
