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"

    Hmm, still seems to have issues with Errorfilter, I can set it to filter all errors. But as soon I relog, they return, even if hide all errors is still selected. I then have to uncheck it and check it again to hide all errors anew everytime i login.

    Errormonster is able to kill the error messages and keep them hidden without having to recheck them on every login.

    Any help with this? id rather prefer to block individual error messages, but with errorfilter not saving the settings..
  • #68
    You probably have another addon that interferes by changing the UIErrorsFrame behaviour. If you run only ErrorFilter does it work properly?
  • #70
    Think i found the problem, the addon Hideblizzard is conflicting with errorfilter. As soon the option enable special frames are turned on, then error filter ceases working, even if i never choose to suppress any of the the sub areas, which could be the error frame
  • #63
    Seems to be a general issue with the mod, it simply stops working rather fast. Unusable currently.
  • #64
    What do you mean? It work fine for me. Tested on 4.1 PTR also.
  • #61
    Actually the message is a result of trying to change equipsets in combat (forgot I had that on my fireball :P)

    Still not being blocked though and would be nice if it was :P
  • #60
    Doesn't seem to be blocking the "You can't do that right now." error that results from spamming a key while something else is casting.

    ie. Spamming the fireball key.
  • #62
    I see that by default that is not selected. Did you check "You can't do that right now." in the options?
  • #58
    Is this mod good for macros? I want to spam my hunter's macro and i keep getting the red error messages. it's annoying.
  • #59
    Yes it works for macros also.
  • #57
    Does this addon remove the error messages completely... i still want to know if im to far away but i don't want it to spam, for example show the same error only once every 8 seconds. If not can you direct to a mod similar to this one that does work with cata and doesnt remove them completely. Thanks ahead of time.

    Error messages still seem to come through even though custom is selected and e.g. "Ability is not ready yet" checked.
  • #54
    Also "Another action is in progress" and "Spell is not ready yet" does not seem to get filtered even though check in teh options.
  • #55
    I could not replicate your problem. Do you happen to use another localization than enUS or enGB?
