PhanxChat  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.2.253
by: Phanx, Akkorian

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!

Ah, that would explain why I didn't see it. No, I don't plan to add any features relating to that or any other individual button.

Minimize Button

Would it be possible to make an option to move the minimize button for new chat frames over to the top left? Or could you tell me how to do that myself within your mod? Thanks in advance.

This is due to your recent update to PhanxBuffs. Your dropdown menu library in PhanxBuffs is a newer version than the one in PhanxChat and is overwriting it.

All other features remain functional. I only discovered this when I clicked on PhanxChat's options by mistake trying to access PhanxBuff's options.

Please don't hate me!
^This is still occurring. A fix would be lovely~

Thanks, Phanx! <3

Well, I've had someone report that popup Real ID conversations are working with 3.3.5.80, even though nothing I changed was really related to that. If you were having issues with previous versions, please let me know whether the issue is resolved for you too.

I'm still working on fixing the visual formatting of temporary windows (including those used for popup Real ID conversations), and will be adding "[NN. Conversation]" to the list of things shortened by the "Shorten channel names" option.

I also had someone request shortening Real ID names to show only the first name, and that sounds good, so I will probably add that as well, and lump it under "Shorten channel names". Anyone have any objections?

I see, I had the buttons dragged off screen because I keep my chat window on the left side.

Any chance of a "Move Buttons" command similar to the "Move Edit Box" one where the buttons would flip to the right side?

Version 3.3.5.80
  • Added message processing for Real ID whispers
  • Fixed tell-target functionality to work for cross-realm players
  • Fixed repeat-message filtering to actually respect the line threshold
  • Fixed visual handling of temporary frames
  • Fixed several typo-related errors
  • Updated configuration

Still looking into the Real ID conversation issue... I haven't had a whole lot of time this week, and it's difficult to fix an issue I can't personally replicate or test.

new friend tab

Any chance of making an option to enable a tab or put some type of floating display of the Social Friend Counter that WoW added in the 3.3.5 patch?

It is the little icon with the counter now in the top left of the default chat box. Tells you how many of your friends are online.

It isn't a "Critical" feature, but does has some functionality that could be nice as an option to enable/disable.

Why go over the river for water with the who and copy in the rightclick menu?

Shiftclick a name with chatprompt closed will do a /who on the name and do the same with the prompt open and it will input the name into chat.
