  • 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 “/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.

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!
Language Support
Works in all languages. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 (partial). Add or update translations for any locale on CurseForge!
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:

Might want to readd the Ace2 libraries to the .toc file -- this is the only Ace addon I use and the libs never get loaded. Just a note The .toc file from the last RC works beautifully.

Keep up the great work! This addon is everything I need for my chat window.

I can confirm this does not work. But maybe you misunderstood me or maybe you just don't know, so I will try to make it more clear.

Example:

Step 1. Jackalantern types a sentence in Trade Chat to sell something.

Step 2. Random "Phanx Chat" user wants to know what class Jackalantern is and have his name coloured and stored in the database, this user shift-clicks Jackalantern's name in his chat window to do that.

Step 3. Random "Phanx Chat" user notices that a couple seconds after he shift clicks Jackalantern's name that his name is not coloured at all when Jackalantern types his second sentence in trade chat.

- Conclusion: It does not work, I am using the English Client, and it is in the format you posted. Why it does not work I do not know, I am not a coder. However I do know that other chat mods such as "Prat" does work in this manor. Also, even if you go into the actual "Who" tab and click on Jackalantern's name it will still not be coloured the next time he makes a message, for anything to be coloured with this mod you either have to A) Directly click on them B) Have them on your friends or guild list. - that means if I want a strangers name who is a world away to be coloured I have to /who them and add them to my friends list, then remove for it to be coloured.

I completely understand that you wouldn't want to update to too many places, was just curious, an I certainly use addons that are not Aced and take full advantage of the email notify of this site. For me, the more addons I can update through WAU the better, but just because an addon doesn't use that, wont stop me from enjoying it

It's not available from files.wowace.com because it isn't hosted on the Wowace SVN. I have several reasons for choosing not to host it on Wowace.

First, I already have three places to upload it any time I make a change or fix a bug, and I'd rather not add a fourth, especially since posting it on Wowace would require me to download, install, and learn to use SVN client software, rather than simply filling in a form in my web browser. Far more work than I want to do just to make it more work to release updates!

Second, I don't want other people making changes or additions to my code, and if it's on the SVN, other addon authors or maintainers have open access to do whatever they want to the code, while that code stays part of my addon, with my name on it, even though I may not approve of or even know about what they've done to it. Sure, I could ask the SVN administrators to lock it so that I only I can make changes, but again, it's a lot more effort than should be needed, and more than I'm willing to expend just to making releasing updates more work.

Third, I like the fact that people can't update my addon through WAU. WAU is great and wonderful, yes, and I use it myself, but it has the unfortunate effect of being so easy to use that it ends up reinforcing the "Ace is better" misconception. The more people who use only addons they can update through WAU, the more people who are using only Ace addons, and the more people who are missing out on all the other great addons out there. I've seen many, many forum threads -- on this site, on Wowace, and on other sites -- where people have listed a bunch of addons and said "I want to get rid of these, what are Ace alternatives?". These kinds of posts are extremely ignorant, and many times the lists include addons that already use Ace libraries (including PhanxChat) simply because the poster assumes that all Ace addons are on Wowace, and that all addons not on Wowace don't use Ace. Not only is this assumption wrong, it's also wrong to think that simply because an addon uses Ace, it's automatically better than an addon that doesn't use Ace. The purpose of Ace is to make it easier, faster, and more efficient for authors to develop addons. The inclusion of exclusion of Ace -- or any other library -- in an addon shouldn't even be a consideration for users. If it works for you, use it, if it doesn't, use something else. The building blocks of an addon are not nearly as important as the construction -- i.e. how well the author coded it. You can have poorly written addons using Ace libraries, and well written addons not using Ace libraries.

In closing, turn on email notification for favorites updates, and it's less work for you to download it from WoWInterface than it would be for me to keep it updated on Wowace. Also, PhanxChat may not use Ace libraries forever, and most of the other addons I maintain don't use Ace libraries. It's also about 1000x easier to keep track of comments, bug reports, and feature requests on a site like WoWInterface than it is to track those things in a forum thread on Wowace, which is where they'd all go if it was available for download there.

Thanks for a great mod

I just had one question, when you ask it to log the chat, where does it put the file?

Uploaded version 20100-r05. This version fixes the FuBar plugin / minimap icon error, and changes the plugin/icon menu so that the options related to the plugin/icon are in a submenu, and it should be more clear which "Disable" option applies to PhanxChat and which applies to the plugin/icon.

SWATTER USERS:
Please don't post the full list of addons you're using. 99% of the time, it's not relevant, because the error message you're posting isn't caused by another addon. Before you report a problem, see if it still happens when all your other addons are disabled. If it does, it's not related to other addons. The other 1% of the time when it is an addon conflict, because I'm not going to spend hours downloading them and enabling them one at a time to find out if they conflict with my addon. If you have some idea which addon may be conflicting (i.e. something it's supposed to do isn't working), post its name. If you're using other addons that do stuff with chat, post their names. Otherwise, don't post a bunch of irrelevant addon names, please.

Vayder:
The minimap button can be disabled by either deleting the "PhanxChatFu.lua" file (it's actually a FuBar plugin, but if you don't run FuBar, plugins display around the minimap instead), or by unchecking the last "Enabled" in the right-click menu (the first Enabled/About/Close group is for PhanxChat, the second is for the FuBar plugin), or by typing "/script PhanxChatFu:ToggleActive(false)".

eliminate2:
In the very near future, no. In the less-near future, possibly. Please submit a feature request using the "Feature Request" button up near the "Download" button, or the "Feature Request" link at the bottom of the addon description, so it's not forgotten if at some point I do decide to add features.

Disable Mini Map button

Is there anyway to disable the minimap button? if not any chance you could implement that in the next release?

Uploaded v20100-r04. This version fixes the duplicate FuBar plugin / minimap icon. I moved the FuBar plugin to its own file, so you can delete it if you don't want it, and apparently forgot to save after deleting that code from the main file.

Bug

with r03:
I see 2 phanxchat minbuttons around the minimap. Right clicking either one pulls up a big box that says Phanxchat at the top and nothing else inside it.

Uploaded v20100-r03. This version fixes the toggles for sticky channels and channel color memory.

Jackalantern:
If you are using an English client, or another language client which displays printed who query results in the format "Name: Level X Race Class - Zone", then shift-clicking will properly add the name and class to the color database. If you are using a language client that does not display printed who query results in that format, please provide the correct format for your language, and I will add it.
