PhanxChat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3.87
by: Phanx, Akkorian

Removes chat frame clutter and adds some functionality.
Entfernt das Durcheinander des Chat-Fensters und fügt einige Funktionen hinzu.

移除聊天框架的雜亂並新增一些功能。

  • 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 “/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.

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!

Odd. After the latest update, the chat tab resizing issue is gone, but the chat tab labels are all shifted to the right. That means your first tab has no label, "General" flows onto the second tab, bumping "Combat Log" off further to the right...

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

Hi linguini,

You can turn off some things in the options panel (type “/pchat”), but it might still conflict with Prat. I probably won’t ever write separate addons for any parts of PhanxChat, though, so you might have to look for another addon that replaces Real ID names. Good luck!

Hi iradex,

PhanxChat doesn’t modify the font. You could add code to do it, but there isn’t anything in there already that you can just edit, so you’d be better off just putting it in a custom addon, or even in a macro. See the SetFont API page on Wowpedia for details.

Hi Led ++,

If you open the “HideTextures.lua” file inside the “Modules” folder, and look for this line:

if editBox then

Right after that (line 31), you’ll see three lines with SetAlpha(0), and then three lines with SetTexture([[path\to\file]]). In the SetTexture lines, delete the square brackets and everything in between, so they look like SetTexture() instead.

You’ll see another set of similar lines further down in the file (line 81). There, do the same thing, and also change the SetAlpha(0) lines to all say SetAlpha(1) instead.

That should hide all of the edit box textures no matter what your PhanxChat settings are.

Any chance you might give us the code to do so tho? I don't want it to be in every future release, however I would really like the code (and I'll save it somewhere for future reference). I'd love to make a kgPanel for it instead.

Feel free to PM me.

Any chance for an option to remove all graphics for the edit box and have just the text show up?

Thanks, that sorted it

blizzart:
No, and it probably won’t be added. I think Phanx has specifically declined that request several times in the past, and I don’t have any interest in it either. You could install CCopy, which is a small standalone addon that provides chat copying functionality. I haven’t tried it myself, but it should work just fine with PhanxChat. If you try it, and have any problems running both addons, let me know.
