  • 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
  • Sets the delay time for chat text fading
  • Stops docked chat tabs from being dragged
  • Hides the scroll, menu, and social buttons
  • Hides extra textures on chat frames
  • Hides the flashing effect on chat tabs

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

(*) As of Patch 5.4 using Up/Down to access previously entered chat lines without the Alt key is limited to non-secure commands only. If you need to access previously entered secure commands (like /cast or /use) you will still need to hold the Alt key.

(**) 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.

Hmm. Well, my primary goal was to restore the pre-3.3.5 appearance of the chat frames, with nothing showing while inactive. I don't really want to get into the business of reskinning things. You're probably out of luck for now.

Yes, that makes the tabs and typing box permanantly visible. However, it also leaves the horrendous new textures that Blizzard added which make the tabs and typing box EXTREMELY opaque, and on some surfaces in the game, almost invisible.

The new textures are a primary annoyance for me. Your mod rids the window of them, and that is what I want, but I also want the tabs and typing box to remain visible all the time. Just without those awful textures.

At work now. I'll look into the actual errors when I get home.

As I've already stated at least twice on this page in the last 24 hours, this is not a bug in PhanxChat. This is a new "feature" in the default UI. If you want the chat box at the top, you should change the Blizzard "Chat Style" setting to "Classic" so that you can still click on the chat tabs. You may also be able to get away with simply unchecking the "Click Anywhere" option, but I haven't tried that.

Won't happen. See the addon description under "Feature Requests", specifically the link to a list of previously requested features that I will never add to PhanxChat.

Got this when messing with button settings:

[15:13:50] Interface\AddOns\PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua:1053: attempt to index global 'button' (a nil value)
[C]: ?
Interface\AddOns\PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua:1053: in function `SetHideButtons'
Interface\AddOns\PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua:1594: in function `OnClick'
...s\Libs\PhanxConfig-Checkbox\PhanxConfig-Checkbox.lua:30: in function <...s\Libs\PhanxConfig-Checkbox\PhanxConfig-Checkbox.lua:26>

I also had a problem changing tabs, everytime I would click a tab the chat box would pop up over the top of them so I couldnt change. I ended up moving the chat box to the bottom.

Post Error

Hi,
Got the newest version. When I clicked the check box beside "Shorten channel names" to uncheck it I got the following error:

Date: 2010-06-23 14:23:24
ID: 3
Error occured in: Global
Count: 1
Message: ..\AddOns\PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua line 1429:
bad argument #1 to 'pairs' (table expected, got nil)
Debug:
[C]: ?
[C]: pairs()
PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua:1429: SetShortChannels()

...t\Libs\PhanxConfig-Checkbox\PhanxConfig-Checkbox.lua:30:
...t\Libs\PhanxConfig-Checkbox\PhanxConfig-Checkbox.lua:26

Though it did unshorten the names.

Thanks,
Twidget

It's really late, and I'm having trouble envisioning exactly what combination of things you do and do not want to see, so I'm going to hold off on trying to give you an answer until tomorrow.
lol, not a problem. I'll list them without all the excess.

1. I would like the tabs at the top of the window to be visible all the time.
2. I would like the typing/chat box at the bottom of the window to be visible all the time.

I know 99% of people want the tabs and typing box to disappear like your mod does currently, I'd just like an option/checkbox that lets them remain visible 100% of the time.

Just a quick note.

As of the latest update, I am unable to make the arrows in chatbox disappear. I turn it off in options, but it still shows up when I scroll through the frame.

Other than that, thank you for having a nice, working chatbox as of day 2 of patch!

Sticky chat

For some reason, and I don't know if this is just a problem on my end or not since no one else has mentioned it, but the whisper channel is still being automatically stickied no matter which setting I set the "sticky chat" to.

However, I did manage to find a way to fix it myself.

In the PhanxChat folder (in the interface/addons directory), open PhanxChat.lua in Notepad. Now, hit Ctrl+F and enter the phrase:

ChatTypeInfo.WHISPER.sticky = 1

Now, change the 1 to a 0 and save the document

Now, in-game, in the Phanx option menu (Interface > Addons > PhanxChat) set the "Sticky Chat" option to "All" (sounds counter-intuitive, I know; but it works).

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.
