PhanxChat  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.2.250
by: Phanx, Akkorian
Removes chat frame clutter and adds some functionality.
Entfernt das Durcheinander des Chat-Fensters und fügt einige Funktionen hinzu.
Eliminar desorden de la ventana de chat y añadir algunas funciones.
Remover a desordem da janela de bate-papo e adicionar algumas funcionalidades.
Удаляет беспорядок в окне чата и добавляет новые возможности.
移除聊天框的杂物并加入一些功能。
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!
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:
  • Reskinned or recolored edit box, chat tabs, or anything else
  • Custom fonts, outlines, shadows, or text alignments
  • Freely movable/draggable edit box
  • Extra entries in the player name right-click menu
  • Extra click actions on player names (eg. alt-click to invite)
  • Alerts for specific words or message types seen in chat
  • Mouseover tooltips on item or other links
  • Keybindings to open specific chat channels
  • Nicknames, main/alt aliases, group numbers, levels, or any other extra text
  • Anything related to timestamps
Language Support

Compatible with all locales. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 (partial).

To add or update translations for any locale, enter them on the CurseForge project page, and then send me a PM here or on CurseForge to let me know that you’ve made changes. If you don’t have a Curse account and don’t want to create one, you can PM me your translations instead. Thanks!

  • 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.

Please use the bug tracker to report bugs. Also, please don't post all of the extra crap that your in-game error tool gives you along with the error message.

Ok, I deleted the saved variables file and also the phaxchat addon folder. I reinstalled the newest version of PhanxChat. The "about" tab in-game shows version 3.3.3.66-Beta.

I also disabled all other addons and my tab still flashes when I receive a whisper. Here are the contents of my phaxchat.lua saved variables file:


PhanxChatDB = {
["hideButtons"] = true,
["enableArrowKeys"] = true,
["disableTabFlash"] = true,
["fadeTime"] = 5,
["moveEditBox"] = true,
["lockDockedTabs"] = true,
["linkURLs"] = true,
["autoStartChatLog"] = false,
["filterNotices"] = true,
["shortChannels"] = true,
["stickyChannels"] = "ALL",
["enableMousewheel"] = true,
["filterRepeats"] = true,
["colorPlayerNames"] = true,
}

Thanks!

Flashing Tabs - Disable Flashing no longer works

I have a chat tab that shows only whispers. Since the new release of PhanxChat, my "whisper" tab continues to flash when I receive a whisper even though I have the option to disable flashing turned on.

I have no plans to add abbreviation editing to the in-game options panel. What part of the extra info page needs to be updated?

There was a dilbert strip. Something about the company giving a bonus for each bug found.

Hi Phanx,

Downloaded the latest beta. Getting basically the same LUA errors as listed already, so I went back to my previous version which was working fine, other than Party leader which I can live with for now. But that's not what I'm here for. I noticed in the new version core.lua was gone . Popped open phanx.lua and there were my channel name options (I tweak them to my liking).

Just wondering if your going to update the extra info page...or perhaps add some functionality to edit the "Short names" via the Interface>Addon>PhanxChat control panel?

Thanks again for a great little addon.

Version 3.3.3.66-beta
  • Fixed an error caused by a misnamed variable
  • Added missing config library

Really not sure how I wasn't getting that error... the option it's related to is enabled by default, and I definitely have it enabled, and haven't touched that part of the code in weeks.

Also forgot to add the config library for the dropdown... both fixed in r66.
