  • 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 (**)

(**) 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.

officer chat

I just cleared all my addons, plus all my wtf and cache folders. Put in just phanxchat. I still cant get the officer sticky to work. Any thoughts?

Oo, edit, the sticky feature works. My mistake, I was wondering about something else. Your mod use to separate guild and officer chat as well. I was capable of put officer chat in a separate window as the guild chat. I was wondering if this feature is still in? or it is not possible anymore?

Also customtimestamp hasnt been updated, do u have another recommendation?

While I enjoyed the fact that PhanxChat did exactly what I wanted, I've switched to using Prat. Prat may take slightly more time to configure, but it does everything PhanxChat does and more. Extra features can be disabled.

Yep. I'm not going to fix it, because it's not game-breaking, and it won't be a problem in the rewritten version I'm working on. You'll just have to live with it until next week.

Brenell May 25 9:22PM
I'm having the same problem as Ultroman. In addition, something similar happens when I shift click on a players name for more info. It will display something like this:

[PlayerName] <Guild> [Zone]: <Guild> [Zone]

[A] Phanx May 24 11:09PM
Okay, I've uploaded a preliminary fix for the visible chat line counter issue. Not sure why Blizz put the counter in there, but should be gone now. Please note that I didn't actually test in this version. I am working on a total rewrite with some new features, and just backported the counter fix from that version, which barring any further issues should be released this weekend.

[A] Phanx May 24 12:58AM
Stza:
Read my response to Vampira below, and Menelvalar's comment. If you turn off name coloring and name bracket removal, the numbers will go away. I have not had time to fix the problem in the last 24 hours or whatever since the patch came out. I will hopefully have time and have a fix by the end of the week.

Yep, I tried to post it yesterday but I was short on time and WoWI was being really, really slow.

The number you were seeing is the line ID, and is used by the new spam reporting functions. Although the fix I've just uploaded will allow player name class coloring and bracket removal to work, if you have these features enabled, you will not be able to report spam through the new API. I'm working on a better fix, which should be ready to go by next maintenance, but in the meantime you'll have to either disable the name features or live without spam reporting.

And for some reason WoWI isn't sending me email notifications for new comments anymore... I'll try to remember to check for them more frequently.

Explanation for names that can't be clicked

Whenever you see someone who is being obnoxious/rude/trolling/spamming and yet you click on their name and don't see any menu pop up, it's because they didn't send the message.

Instead, the person on the line above them did. And then they padded their message with spaces to make it wrap to the next line and then type [FakeName]: @#^@ n00b! or something like that.

For example, I could make everyone think PhanxChat is a jerk by saying something like this in /1 (general)

Code:
> everyone having fun today? no stupid barrens chat?                   [PhanxChat]: stfu nub ur mom gav m3 a fr33bee l4st nite
Since it's not really from him, there's no playermenu when people click his name. A /who would only work if i was faking it from someone that is real and online. Also, if you've adjusted your font size or frame width, it easily breaks the illusion as you'll get the [PhanxChat] in the wrong place. It's a crappy trick, but it was popular way back in EQ 1.

Personally, I consider it harassment to spoof someone and should result in a warning or something.... but whatever. Now you know, try the name above the obnoxious message.

Fix for numbers next to names

Ok, I've patched this on my system. If you'd like to fix your own copy while waiting on the author to update this officially, read on. This fix enables the name coloring in chat. Siz' version just skips coloring the names.

Step 1) Open up PhanxChat.toc and change Interface from 20000 to 20100. This will make it no longer say it's out of date.

Step 2) Now open up PhanxChat.lua (if you have a different version of phanx than I do, you may need to open core.lua instead to find the lines I list below).

Step 2a) Go to line 38, which starts with
Code:
self:RegisterEvent("CHAT_MSG_SYSTEM"
Somewhere in the middle of that line, you should see
Code:
string.find(arg1, "^|Hplayer:%w+|h%[(%w+)%]|h:
Change that to
Code:
string.find(arg1, "^|Hplayer:%w+:%d+|h%[(%w+)%]|h:
(note that I added the ":%d+")

Step 2b) Go to line 100, which starts with
Code:
local n = string.gsub(
Find
Code:
|Hplayer:(.-)|h
in the middle of the line and change it to
Code:
|Hplayer:(.-):%d+|h
(again, I added the ":%d+")

Step 2c) Go to line 113, which starts with
Code:
msg = string.gsub(msg,
Find
Code:
 |Hplayer:(.-)|h
on that line and change it to
Code:
 |Hplayer:(.-):%d+|h
Step 3) Restart WoW or reload your UI.

Done!

If your line numbers don't match mine exactly, don't worry. Version differences may cause that and its no reason to worry or think the fix won't work - just find the line that matches

And finally.. this is a temporary fix. It throws away the "lineID" which is the number you are seeing, but that number is needed for some spam reporting. However, this shouldn't pose a problem since PhanxChat won't throw away the lineID unless it already knows the person, and spammers don't usually hang around...

READ the replies and do as Siz suggested. That is your best bet. The mod works fine for me after doing that.

Any chance of this getting updated? I prefer this chat mod above all others and right now its bugged out and showing numbers behind every line of chat. Like:

[Guild]Me:1: Blah Blah Blah
[Guild]You:2: Blah BLah blah
[Trade]Me:3: BLah blah blah

Nothing I can do will get it to fix, can someone please either update this mod, or hotfix it so it will stop with the numbers?

I see it too. The number seems to be the unique ID assigned to every character that is encountered. This ID would help keep track of the person's class so that the name could be colored.

I just commented out the offending section of code in the PhanxChat:AddMessage function.
Code:
function PhanxChat:AddMessage(f, msg, r, g, b, id)
	if msg and msg ~= "" then

		if self.db.profile.strings == "Short" then
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-General%]", "[%1/GEN]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-Trade%]", "[%1/TRD]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-LocalDefense%]", "[%1/LD]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-WorldDefense%]", "[%1/WD]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-GuildRecruitment%]", "[%1/GR]")
		elseif self.db.profile.strings == "None" then
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-General%]", "[%1]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-Trade%]", "[%1]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-LocalDefense%]", "[%1]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-WorldDefense%]", "[%1]")
			msg = string.gsub(msg, "%[(%d)%..-GuildRecruitment%]", "[%1]")
		end
--[[
		local n = string.gsub(msg, ".*|Hplayer:(.-)|h.*", "%1")
		local b

		if self.db.profile.names.color then
			n = self:GetColoredName(n)
		end

		if self.db.profile.names.brackets then
			b = "|Hplayer:%1|h"..n.."|h"
		else
			b = "[|Hplayer:%1|h"..n.."|h]"
		end

		msg = string.gsub(msg, "|Hplayer:(.-)|h%[.-%]|h(.-:-)", b.."%2")
]]--
		msg = self:MarkURL(msg)
	end
	self.hooks[f]["AddMessage"](f, msg, r, g, b, id)
end

Having a little issue with chat lines.

Have I missed something on these forums that I should know about? It's quite annoying.

Everything else, though, works wonderfully.
Great addon.

Well Phanx I do not think it is a waste for it to save across sessions at all. Mainly because colouring of player names give this mod and many others similar to it a real aesthetic value, not to mention it makes the chat box a lot easier to read, for me anyways.

The fact that it does not save in between sessions is nothing more than a minor annoyance at best yes but it does get old after awhile having to check off-line members and scroll through.

And about the off-line members and scrolling through part. I mention that because anytime a new guildie comes on-line their name won't be coloured because simply clicking the guild tab wont work, you have to check "show off-line" members and see them that way. So if I want all of the guild members names coloured throughout my entire session (which is up to 4-5 hours at a time sometimes) I'd rather just scroll through all the off-line members as well when I first log in and get it all done at once.

Also I notice that shift-clicking a person in general chat so it shows that players info displayed in the chat box that will not make their names colour, you have to open the actual /who window and do it that way, I believe this is a bug? Because the "ChatBox" mod does not require you to open the /who window, shift clicking their name and the info showing up in the chat window is fine.

All in all it is a great mod and I've been using it for awhile but the not saving character names across sessions has always annoyed me to some extent. If you could add the support so that it will I would love you for it more than I already do for this great chat box mod
