  • 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
  • Hides channel notification messages
  • Hides repeated messages in public channels
  • Enables class colored names in all channels with a single click
  • Changes the text size in all chat frames from a single control
(*) 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 “/clear” or “/clearchat” to clear all visible chat windows.
  • Type “/clear all” or “/clearchat all” 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.

Please DO NOT send me PMs asking for help, reporting bugs, or requesting features. To report a bug or suggest a feature, see the instructions below. To get help, post a comment. I read and respond to every ticket and comment!
Language Support
Works in all languages. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 (partial). Add or update translations for any locale on CurseForge!
Feedback
Post a ticket or comment. If you are reporting a bug, please include directions I can follow to reproduce the bug, whether it still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the related error message (if any) from Bugger.

The following features will never be added to PhanxChat, and requests for them will be deleted, so please just don't bother posting such requests:

Thumbs up Scroll issue

I had the same scroll issue listed below. Upgraded to 3.0.2.20 and I'm no longer getting errors.

Thanks Phanx

It is simply not possible that error to occur with version 2.4.3.19, unless you have another addon which is interfering with the 3.0 client detection. I've just posted version 3.0.2.20, which completely removes compatibility with WoW 2.4.3. Please completely delete the addon files and saved variables for PhanxChat and install version 3.0.2.20. Log in with PhanxChat enabled and ALL OTHER ADDONS DISABLED.

Also, if you use Windows Vista and have WoW installed in the Program Files directory, check your "virtual store" to make sure there isn't an outdated version of PhanxChat in there; I don't use Vista and cannot provide specific instructions on how to do this, but I'm sure Google can help if needed.

If the error still occurs with a clean install of 3.0.2.20, I'm sorry, but there's simply nothing more I can do. If you like, you can try reverting to 2.4.3.17, which is the last version without compatibility for WoW 3.0.x.

Finally, you can verify which version of the addon is running in-game by typing:

/run ChatFrame1:AddMessage(GetAddOnMetadata("PhanxChat", "Version"))

Re: Re: updated one still errors

Hmm I am using the latest version and getting this same error?

I don't know what to tell you, then. I was indeed getting that error with r18 on live servers, as r18 contained a fix for the scroll-to-bottom button on beta servers. I added code to only apply the fix on 3.0.x clients in r19, and have been using it on both live and beta servers without error.

I'm getting the same errors as the previous poster below - I'm using TekErr and it just keeps scrolling forever, unable to stop it.

Does this new version work on the live servers, or only WOTLK?

I've got a lua error on my game. It just happened recently. It says, and I quote

"Interface\Addons\Phanxchat\core.lua:327;attempt to index local 'frame' (a number value)"

The error does not go away unless I disable display lua errorws. I'm playing on a Mac, Tiger OSX if it makes a difference. It's the most recent version I believe. 2.4.3.18.

Great addon, love it very much! Thanks a lot Phanx!

EDIT: This post was being rude in terms of stating the obvious. Changed to show that I'm not a bad person...

Yes, I have on occasion had to report compilations that included my addons. As for every author having the freedom to set his or her own license terms, yes, that's a freedom guaranteed under copyright. Some authors are okay with their work being passed around. I am not. People who don't understand English well enough to read license terms in English should either stick to redistributing addons with license terms written in a language they do understand, or learn English better. Ignorance is not an excuse to violate law.

Thanks for this information about copyrights. i take care about it! I w'll read your readme. It's not my opinion to make money, my compilation should be free for everyone. I leave all addons in original state. Forbidden "redistrubution" in any way makes not easy. In this case im remove it from my ui and the "users" must download phanxchat manualy from this site.
Yes, that's the idea... if you like my addon, and want to share it with others, you're welcome to give them the link to my download page, and say "click this link and download this addon!" This way I maintain control over where the addon is available, and can guarantee that users are always getting the most recent version without any modifications.
