About LFG Forwarder

(Now there is a Trade Channel edition : Trade Forwarder)

Since wow 3.3, the LFG channel is no longer worldwide, it can only be joined while you are in cities. You can never get infos while out gathering or in dungeons. The serious inconvenience leads to the idea of this addon.

After installing LFG Forwarder, you will join a HIDDEN channel automatically. The addon communicates with others who has also installed it, to choose one in LFG channel, who will afterwards forward the message he saw in LFG to the HIDDEN channel. Therefore others can get LFG messages from the HIDDEN channel wherever they are.

This addon is published to Taiwan WoW players on 2010/1/26, and has been downloaded nearly 2000 times in just a few days. Hundreds of players helped me testing, to prove that it is a very useful addon.

You should know that LFGForwarder only works when at least two players of the same realm and same side installed it. You can't receive LFG messages if no one with this addon is in cities. Tell your friends to get and try this addon. The more players installed LFGForwarder, the more unlikely you will stop receiving LFG messages.

You can config the color and to which Chat Frame that the forwarded message will be shownm, by modifying the "LFGForwarderllll" channel setting in chat frames' settings page.

Some commands:

  • /lfw Temporarily stop showing the forwarded LFG messages. You can press a modified key and click the Look for Dungeon button on main action bar to switch show/hide state.
  • /lfw list A shortcut to see the player list who are in the hidden channel. ( who has installed LFGForwarder)
  • /lfw <message..> Send the message to players who installed LFGForwarder


Because one can easily mimic the message format that LFGForwarder uses, the forwarded messages you see in [LFW] channel may be "FAKE" ones. Always pay attension on the fowarder name whichi is shown at the head of [LFW] message. And I DO NOT take the responsiblity of the possiblity of cheats using LFGForwarder.

- the cycle breaks because of GetNumRaidMembers(), so I have to change the hidden channel name.
- version number is now 2300, but old versions can't see the update notice. Please tell your friends that there is a new version.
- not fully tested.

  • #31

    When there will be an updating?

  • #30

    It's Updated!

  • #29

    最近收到黄字提示说有其他人正在使用比我版本新的LFG Forwarder,让我去某地址更新。发现给的地址是curse改版前的下载地址,奇怪之余问那个黄字提示提到的使用者,他说是鱼鱼带的。

    WARBABY 大大好

    因為現在有跨伺服器的關係 很多積分戰場團都會在杜洛塔或艾爾文森林喊團


    或者另外再獨立一個UI 專門給積分戰場用呢?

    Great Addon! Thank you sooo much for this!

    Suggestion: would be great to merge two versions of this (LFG + Trade = one addon instead of two) and add an option to toggle each of the two channels forwarding. This will merge "/lfw list" and "/tfw list" participants who are now divided into two different groups and that in turn would increase efficiency of the addon.

    Great idea.

    更新 2.20_2 之後,原本SHIFT+組隊按鈕開關頻道訊息的功能似乎不能用了?

  • #19
    Really great. Not common on my server, but a few people use it.
  • #13
    I created a topic on the WIM forums.

    Would love to see these mods work together.
    The creator of WIM said they would support any and all mods that are still being updated.
