(**) 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.

Updated for WoW 7.0.3
Added toggles for the game's "Enable Mouse Wheel Scrolling" and "Remove Chat Hover Delay" settings, which are no longer exposed in the default Chat options panel.
Fixed the term "battle.net" being turned into a clickable link.
Shift-clicking links into chat and cycling through previously entered chat lines will no longer insert an extra space.
The /pchat clear command is now just /clear and clears only visible chat frames by default. Use /clear all to clear all chat frames instead.
The /pchat command remains for opening the options window.
Fixed option to disable chat fading
Added an option to prevent the chat frame from opening a pet battle combat log window

Added a limited workaround for Blizzard's stupid auto-complete changes in 5.4 that broke the ability to cycle through your chat input history using the Up/Down arrows without holding the Alt key. However, this 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.

Updated for WoW 5.2
The "Shorten player names" option has been renamed to "Remove server names" and now only removes server names from cross-realm character names.
A new "Shorten real names" option has been added, with the choice of keeping full names, showing first names only, or replacing Real ID names with BattleTags.
The "Replace real names" option will continue to replace both Real ID names and BattleTags with character names.
The "Show class colors" option now always overrides the individual channel options in the Blizzard chat options window. To avoid confusion, the Blizzard check boxes are disabled.
Added LibChatAnims to work around public chat API functions tainting the talent frame due to Blizzard's stupidity
