  • 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.

Phanx, thanks for the update. I'll beat a drum in a GMs ear and see if we can't move closer to getting this dealt with in a patch.

Possible "bug"

Last night I encountered an unusual problem. There was an offensive troll in one of the channels, and I tried to ignore him, but I got the result "Player not found." Both right-clicking the name and selecting ignore and typing /ignore and then shift-clicking the guy's name resulted in the same "player not found" error. This guy's name was unusual in that it had a special character in it, an n with the ~ symbol over it. I don't know that Phanx is necessarily the problem, I also use Spam Guard Plus which could also easily be between me and the /ignore attempt. I'm wondering if any other Phanx users have encountered this sort of problem.

rayyna:
You can have any window not rejoin channels. Just change "ChatFrame1" to the name of whichever window you don't want the channels in. Combat log is ChatFrame2, and anything else you create goes from 3 on up to 7. If you don't have them docked, an easy way to tell which window is which is to do:
Code:
/script for i=3,NUM_CHAT_WINDOWS do f="ChatFrame"..i; f:AddMessage("I am ChatFrame"..i.."!") end
Should print a message in each of your custom chat windows telling you which number it is.


As for the edit box, I have no plans to add in code to anchor it to custom chat windows. If you'd like to anchor yours to another window, run the script provided above to get the ID of the frame you want it attached to, and then open PhanxChat.lua and find
Code:
function PhanxChat:SetEditOptions()
It's around line 410; I don't have an exact number as I'm working on some additions in my local copy. In that function, change the four instances of "ChatFrame1" to the ID of the frame you want the edit box anchored to. Then the in-game top/bottom placement toggle will allow you to put it on whichever end of your frame you'd like.

Is there any way to write in an option to move the edit box to a different window or customize placement? And would that work?
Meaning, that we can make a new window move the edit box there and not have that particular window auto-rejoin channels.....

That's the "reappearing channels" bug mentioned in the addon description and in my previous comments. It is a Blizzard bug; any channels which were hidden in the first chat frame will reappear there after you log out and back in (sometimes it takes two logout/login). Use the workaround mentioned in the addon description, substituting "LookingForGroup" for the "General" channel name used in the example. If you like, after you've read the description, you can follow the directions posted by RedFiery a few comments down for a more "invisible" fix.

Love the addon, but how can I stop from entering the lookingforgroup channel? It's really annoying to type /leave 4 every time i log in with one of my characters.

No, that's fine. I had it in there, but it only seemed to work if I logged in a major city. If I didn't, it would seem fine when I logged in, but all my channels would reappear when I entered one. So, I figured it'd be easier just to tell people to use a macro, so they can re-run it whenever they need to.

If it works consistently for you, you can feel free to put it in there.

Edited Chat mod

I don't know where you put your code to remove the general/trade/localdefense channels at, but i put them under the PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD function, only tested it with about 7 characters but it seems to work, i don't have any errors pop up or anything. Hopes this information helps.

Here is what i have for the code snippet

function PhanxChat:PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD()
FCF_SelectDockFrame(ChatFrame1)
ChatFrame_RemoveChannel(ChatFrame1, "General")
ChatFrame_RemoveChannel(ChatFrame1, "Trade")
ChatFrame_RemoveChannel(ChatFrame1, "LocalDefense")
end

Just trying to be helpful, if you'd rather me not post or edit this, by all means let me know.

I've noticed the same thing happening since the last Blizzard patch. I hadn't realized it was my addon, but I'll look into it now. I'd just assumed it was a Blizzard problem, but apparently not.

Edit: After some investigation, I've discovered that this problem is not specific to PhanxChat. It's happening to people using other chat mods, and people using no chat mods, and appears to be random. (Rayyna, from what I've read on the WoW forums, probably if you'd logged out and back in a few times without PhanxChat you'd have encountered the same thing.) So my initial assumption that it was a Blizzard problem was correct. There is a workaround for now, which I'll be posting in the addon description as soon as I post this comment. It requires a tiny bit of work on your part, but isn't something I can fix for everyone, as everyone's channel setup is different.
