About ErrorFilter

About ErrorFilter

Are you fed up with the silly errors that spam your screen? Want to get rid of "Not enough rage" or "Not enough energy"? Then you have come to the right place. ErrorFilter manages the errors that are displayed in the blizzard UIErrorsFrame. It can be set to hide the ErrorFrame completely, drop all errors or filter the messages and discard those selected.

Slash Commands

Use "/erf" or "/ErrorFilter" to open the options menu.

Here you can select the operation mode and change the errors that are filtered.


Other addons can interfere with the game's error frame and mess up ErrorFilter's functionality.

Known problems:

  • ElvUI -> go to options, "General" section, and disable "Hide Error Text"

    Type /erf to bring up the options panel. Select "Filter all errors".

    I just tested in MOP beta and it works fine for me. I'm willing to investigate more so please send me a PM to tell me what ErrorFilter version you have. Also please paste the contents of you config file ErrorFilter.lua found in \World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<Account Name>>\SavedVariables\

    that works for half the gay red lines that show up :)

    like it still says not enough holy power or cannot attack that target or that thing is already dead ?


    hmmm maybe i am asking for to much .. idk :)

    I had this a while back and loved it. Recently started up wow again. Started fresh installing all addons from scratch, and this addon does not work at all. It is enabled and I can access the options, but everything that is enabled for filtering is still showing up.

    I am not getting any UI errors either, can't figure out what is wrong.

    EDIT: After a bit of looking around I found that another addon of mine was controlling the errors.

    Great addon, works just as intended!

    Noticed, purely by coincidence, that there is no way to turn off the error: "target is too low level" (saw it when I accidentally tried to cast Guardian Spirit on a low level NPC). Not that I need it at all, just thought I'd point that out :)

    I'm glad you like it!

    You can add any text you like to the list of filtered messages. Check the options menu '/erf', go to 'Filter only' submenu and add your text in the field at the top of the options menu, then press Enter.

    Its not working for me.

    Just tested on a live EU realm and it works as intended.

    You could try to delete the WTF file to reset the settings. Also you could have some other addon that modifies the game frame displaying the error messages. Try it with no other addon runningto test this posibility.

    Can you disable the spam sounds with this add on as well?
  • #75
    you can do that in the blizzard options
  • #77
    Indeed your only option is to disable sounds from the options menu. I did try to filter sounds as well by dynamically disabling and enabling sounds but it doesn't work well.
  • #73
    Cool add-on, works pretty well.

    Just on a side note, the categories for this download should probably be "Chat & Communication" (as is) and then "Miscellaneous" without the other 3 (Rogue, Death Knight, Warrior) or is there any particular reason you chose to include them (just wondering)? To me, the only next-viable category there is seems to be "Artwork" (although this doesn't really make sense either).

    Keep up the nice work though.
    Cheers. :)

    Those tags remained there from the beginning since it had only a few hardcoded strings like 'not enough energy' 'not enough rage' which were specific to those classes. I'll update it.
  • #72
    Any chance for a 4.2 update? hate getting spammed by the messages heh ;)
  • #69
    It will be included in the release for patch 4.2, most probably on July 21.
