  • 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

(*) 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.

I tried without modifying the substitutions from just copying the folder from the download. However, you have the default CHANNEL_STYLE as just "%d." so I have to add a %s. The channel name isn't showing up even then.

I'm having problems with shortened channel names.

For some reason the %s in the Channel Style is not getting substituted. I have it set as "[%d.%s" and I've tried changing it to just "%s" and other variations and nothing seems to work. Everything else works except %s. I've also tried a fresh install and only added %s to the CHANNEL_STYLE and still it didn't substitute.

What's wrong? I have no other AddoOns enabled.

local STRING_STYLE = "%s "

local CHANNEL_STYLE = "[%d.%s]"

local PLAYER_STYLE = "%s"
S.Conversation = ""
S.General = "Gen"
S.LocalDefense = "LDef"
S.LookingForGroup = "LFG"
S.Trade = "Trd"
S.WorldDefense = "WDef"

EnhancedColorPicker, ColorTools, etc. all add "copy" and "paste" buttons, as well as RGB and hex input, to the color picker. As far as I know they're all "out of date" but should work just fine, since the color picker hasn't been changed since the dawn of WoW.

Well, the really strange thing is that yesterday I seem to have solved it in an incomprehensible way. I've been wanting to change the instance chat/leader colours to the same colours used for party chat/leader, mostly because I'm a ismple creature of habit and can't get used to the raid colours in my dungeon group. Anywho, after some searching for a way to exactly copy the colours (instead of having to guess with the coloured circle) I dove into some chat file and manually altered the RGB coding.
Now here's the weird thing... ever since I edited that file and changed a few numbers, the class colours have been showing perfectly fine again. I've no idea what happened, perhaps editing that file reset something that had been a bit buggy, but I wanted to let you know nonetheless. And then I come here and see you wrote a whole post trying to help me, which I really appreciate but no longer seems to be necessary.

Thank you for your effort and the time you took, both with my issue as well as with the addon as a whole. It's still one of my favourites, and I already made sure to download the 5.2 version. ^^

Okay, I sort of see what's going on. When you check the box in PhanxChat's options, it checks and then disables all of the boxes in the Blizzard chat options. When you uncheck the PhanxChat box, it enables and unchecks all of the Blizzard boxes. When you log in, the function corresponding to the current state of the PhanxChat box gets called, so all of the Blizzard boxes get checked or unchecked depending on whether you have the PhanxChat box checked. If you uncheck the PhanxChat box, you can toggle individual channels in the Blizzard options, but your changes will be overridden next time you log in. This is slightly confusing, so I'm going to change it to be less confusing; the Blizzard boxes will always be disabled, with tooltips explaining that you should use the PhanxChat box instead, since I can't think of a reason why you'd want class colors in some channels but not others.

However, I'm not seeing that Instance Chat is treated any differently from any other chat type. When I check the box in PhanxChat, the Instance Chat box in the Blizzard options gets checked and disabled. When I uncheck the PhanxChat box, the Blizzard Instance Chat box gets enabled and unchecked. Player names in the Instance Chat channel seem to be colored or not colored as expected.

The only thing I can think of is that there is something wrong with one or more files on your hard disk that are storing settings for PhanxChat and/or WoW. You can either delete them all at once, or start at the top of the list and continue only if the problem continues:
  1. World of Warcraft > Cache
    Yes, the entire directory. This will not affect anything.
  2. World of Warcraft > WTF > Account > 123456#1 > SavedVariables > PhanxChat.lua
    This will reset your PhanxChat settings.
  3. World of Warcraft > WTF > Account > 123456#1 > RealmName > CharacterName > chat-cache.txt
    This will reset your Blizzard chat frame settings -- tabs, channel colors, etc.

Remember to completely exit WoW before deleting any of those files. If you've deleted them all and are still having a problem, let me know.

Are you talking about the box labeled "Show class colors" in the PhanxChat options window, or the box next to "Instance Chat" in the column labeled "Show class colors" in the game's chat options window?

Like I said, I have that box checked. It just doesn't seem to work properly with the new instance channel.

You need to use the "Show class colors" option in PhanxChat, as it overrides the individual checkboxes in the game's chat options window. I'll make that more clear by disabling the game's checkboxes in a future update.

Ever since they changed the party chat in a dungeon to instance chat, players I group with don't have their character name shown in their class colour anymore. I have the box checked, but it's not recognised. When I uncheck and recheck the box it starts working fine, but only for as long as I'm logged to that character. As soon as I log in again, or to another character, the names are uncoloured again. Note that this only goes for instance chat - all the other channels have no problem printing character names in their class colour. Is there something you can do to sort this out?

Well, you can try unchecking "Hide extra textures". If that doesn't work either, you're probably just out of luck. I think tab flashing is a completely useless and annoying feature, and don't really have any interest in trying to fix it. As far as I'm concerned, tabs not flashing is an awesome feature, not a bug.
