  • Shortens chat channel names
  • Shortens cross-realm character names and Real ID player names
  • Replaces Real ID player names and BattleTags with WoW character names
  • Enables arrow keys without the Alt key (*)
  • Enables resizing chat frames by their edges
  • Makes all channels sticky (**)
  • Makes URLs clickable for easy copying
  • Moves the input box above the chat frame

  • Stops docked chat tabs from being dragged
  • Hides the scroll, menu, and social buttons

  • Enables class colored names in all channels with a single click

(**) If a channel is sticky, then after talking in that channel, the chat input box will open to the same chat type again, rather than making you type “/g” or “/ra” again.
Options & Commands
  • Type “/pchat” for options, or find them in the Interface Options.
  • Type “/pchat clear” to clear all chat windows.
  • Type “/tt" or “/wt” to send a whisper to your current target.
Some additional options, such as customizing which channels are made sticky and what abbreviations are used for channel names, are available by editing the Core.lua file in a plain-text editor such as Notepad. If you break something, download a fresh copy and try again.

Show all the time - tabs and typing box - request

I love that this mod returns the look of the chat window to pre 3.3.5 and removes the awful tab textures, however, I have a slightly different issue than everyone else. I do NOT want the edit/typing box, window tabs OR the buttons to disappear at all. Pre 3.3.5, ALL of those, except the buttons to the left of the box were all displayed and they never faded/disappeared.

Default UI in 3.3.5 I can only change the background of the main box, not tabs or typing box. Your mod returns the color/texture to the original, but fades them all away. Is there a way you could either add an option so those items, tabs and typing box will NOT disappear and remain as they look when they appear? or possibly tell me how and where in the file, if possible, I can edit to remove the disappearing function?

I know I may be the only one that actually likes the tabs and typing box visible at all times, but I would appreciate any assistance you can give.

PhanxChat only hides the social button. Anchoring a frame to another frame that's hidden does not trigger an error.

The error is actually caused by killing a totally unrelated function (the one that changes which side of the chat frame the scroll buttons are on if you move it to the other side of the screen). However, I actually don't remember why I had to kill that function in the past, and leaving it alone now doesn't seem to have any adverse effects. I'll post an update in a bit.

If you notice any other Battle.net or Real ID related issues, please let me know. I have no plans to ever use the Real ID system, so I won't know about any problems unless someone tells me about them.

Edit:

JLB, I didn't see your comment until after I posted this... anyway, since I won't be using Real ID, it's extremely unlikely that I will ever add any features to PhanxChat related to it, sorry.

I would love to see a feature to set the location for the toast anchor, which i assume would also fix this bug.

Seems that PChat doesn't play nice with the new battle.net toast system. The addon removes the new battle.net social button that's part of the main chat frame by default. All those toasts are anchored to that button. Without an anchor they just pop up with this LUA error every time a toast is supposed to fire.

Code:

Version 3.3.5.72
  • Updated for patch 3.3.5. Not backwards compatible!
  • Added an “Enable resize edges” option to add resize controls along all edges of chat frames, and remove the bottom-left-corner resize arrow. This basically just restores pre-3.3.5 chat frame resizing functionality.
  • Added a “Hide extra textures” option to hide the extra textures on chat tabs and chat edit boxes added in patch 3.3.5.
  • Removed the “Enable mousewheel scrolling” option, since this functionality is now provided by the default UI.
  • Modified the default UI's mousewheel scrolling to scroll more lines at a time, page up/down on ctrl, and top/bottom on shift.
  • Fixed a bug preventing custom short channel name formats from using the channel name in addition to the channel number.
  • Translations are needed for the new options in all locales. Also, major revisions are needed for several locales. If you can assist with translations for any locale, please send me a PM.

Yes, those are just the change notes from the PTR beta version. However, several minor bugs (such as the chat frame's size/position not saving correctly when resize edges are enabled) have been corrected for this release.

Please do not continue to report the following issues, as I am already aware of them and do not need more information about them:

When the chat input box is moved to the top of the chat frame, the chat tabs cannot be clicked for menus.

You can "fix" this by switching the "Chat Style" option in the Blizzard Interface Options to "Classic" instead of the new "IM" style. I will probably add code to PhanxChat to forcibly override the default UI's behavior when using "IM" style chat at some point, but it is a low priority.

Chat frames cannot be moved flush against the edges of then screen.

This has nothing to do with PhanxChat, and was a change made in the default UI. I may or may not add code to PhanxChat to override this behavior, but again, it is a low priority.

One issue with the beta and 3.3.5 is the "move edit box" option. If you select this the chat window becomes uncontrollable. You cannot right click on the chat tabs. It just opens the chat entry line there instead of pulling up the control menu.

When the option is unchecked, the chat entry line keeps popping up blocking window resizing from the bottom too.


No lua errors though:P

Chat Box

Not to raise problems, more of a notice if you happen not to know. My UI, I have setup with "Hide Buttons" and "Move Edit Box". But I have noticed using the Beta version so far that the chat boxes do not go all the way to the edge or bottom of screen. Also the Chat box being ontop makes it impossible to move the chat windows around. Just a few things I've noticed.. but excellent addon on.. been using it since release

I'm sure this isn't news to anyone, but many chat mods were broken with 3.3.5.

PhanxChat among them

I have no idea, actually. I've never wanted to make chat tabs always visible, so I've never looked into it. Your best bet would probably be to ask someone who posted such a screenshot how they did it.

I love this chat mod. Small and simple.

I am wondering however one thing. I see alot of different screenshots/ui's where the tabs are always shown. General/combat/wispers...whatnot.

Is this done via lua? Or some config in a chat mod? Sorry for asking you this, but I like this mod and am hoping I can accomplish this using phanxchat.

**I no nothing about lua, so if it is done there please tell me where=)

Yep; that was my motivation for the PTR version which kills the new "ghost" editbox that shows up even when the editbox isn't open. There wasn't enough of a visible difference between "editbox is open" and "editbox isn't open".
