  • 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

  • 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.

Oh thanks, I missed that one! Yes I admit, I didn't read through the front page before.

Re: Can't switch between tabs

Tried the front page advice? The new chat style can interfere with tab clicking.

...by setting the Chat Style option to “Classic” under Interface Options > Game > Social.

Can't switch between tabs

I have a problem with tab switching since the edit box will come up on top of the tabs so they're not clickable. I'm running a freshly installed WoW and downloaded PhanxChat and this problem happens. I've tried turning off every other addon but it doesn't make a difference.

How to reproduce the problem:

When you log in you're on the "General" tab.
Click the "Combat Log" tab.
Click back to the "General" tab.
Now if you try to click on another tab again, it won't let you, as the edit box comes up instead on top of the tabs, blocking you from clicking them.

This is fixable by putting the edit box in the bottom, but I don't want it in the bottom. It seems the only way to fix this is by logging in and out, but if you switch tabs back and forth again, it'll come back.

Hi Aliae,

I’m not sure if that’s something I want to add (or Phanx wants me to add ), but you should post a feature request ticket to help me keep track of it. I never scroll through old comments, so stuff posted in comments just gets lost. If it’s a ticket though then it stays there for future reference.

Nice that you added class-colored real player names. Not to stare a gift horse in the mouth, but could it possibly be a separate option? I don't want names shortened or substituted to current character name - I just want class-colored for readability.

Posting here since I didn't want to make an entirely new feature request ticket.

Do each of these things in this order, and report back with your results:

1) Log out, disable all addons except for PhanxChat, and log back in. Does the problem still occur? If not, then some other addon is causing it.

2) Log out, delete PhanxChat from your AddOns folder, download a new copy of PhanxChat and unzip it into your AddOns folder by hand, and log back in. Does the problem still occur?

3) Log out, delete the WoW client's chat window settings file, and log back in. This will reset your chat windows to WoW's default settings; if you have customized them heavily, you may wish to back up the file in another location before removing it. Does the problem still occur?

World of Warcraft > WTF > Account > *YOUR ACCOUNT* > *Your Server* > *Your Character* > chat-cache.txt

4) Install !BugGrabber and BugSack, and post the first error that mentions PhanxChat.

Works fine for me on all characters on all servers on all accounts, and for everyone else I know using the addon. Make sure you actually have those channels turned on for the chat window you're looking at.

Version 4.2.0.135
  • Fixed short chat channel names
  • Fixed class-colored character names for Real ID friends

I have not seen any problems with chat tabs. If you are, does it still happen when you disable PhanxChat? If it does, then it isn’t caused by PhanxChat, so there is probably not anything I can do about it, sorry! If it doesn’t, try the reverse and log in with only PhanxChat enabled, and then post a bug report ticket with a screenshot showing the problem. Thanks!

I'm finding that it will shorten the guild and party string but not global channels. It also won't shorten battlenet friends names or change their real name to whatever toon they happen to be playing at the time. Is there any way we can fix this?

Latest update isn't shortening channel names for me, tried to find a fix myself but I can't seem to make it work.

It seems like the code isn't working at all, channel names are displayed standard Blizzard style.

I reset my chat settings to see if that was part of the problem, but it persists

This bug persists for me in the current version, unfortunately.

I didn’t have time to test everything tonight, but there shouldn’t be any errors now at least. I’ll post another update over the weekend if any other fixes come up.
