  • 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.

@lostcup:
Haha, so I've had it backwards... forever. I'll fix that. >_<

@Nakawe:
PhanxChat isn't on WowAce (the only addons I maintain there are ones I actually picked up there). Changing text alignment for the combat log (or any other arbitrary chat frame) isn't something I'd ever use, as I only use one (tabbed) chat window, and isn't something I really view as either adding functionality or removing clutter; it's simply eye candy. For these reasons, it's not something I'll add to my addon. Let me know if the addon Slakah linked works; if so, I'll add a link to it in the "declined features" section of the description.

I tried it phanx, it doesnt work. What I ended up doing for a temp fix is strip basicchatmod, that rabbit and others wrote, from all it modules and edited the toc so it doest look for files I stripped out. I know its a wicked hack job but until I can find a replacement that works, it is all I have.

Maye you take a look at the one suggested? Pretty please :]

Love this mod, great job.

Any chance you can add the ability to suppress the new WOW 2.2 spam from the zepplin masters and the spam from the auction house (ie. "a buyer has been found...") this stuff is all unwanted clutter much like the rest of the unwanted clutter your mod already removes.

(if this is already in here and I missed it, just /slap me and tell me how)

@Nakawe:
I'm sorry, I simply don't have time right now to take on any more projects, no matter how small they are. If you've got something that's working for you, just stick with it.

@Tungsten Spleen:
I don't really want to get into the business of suppressing specific text strings; PhanxChat isn't an anti-spam addon. The existing suppressions are non-specific... they simply remove, for example, anything that's repeated within 10 lines of itself, regardless of what it is. Personally I haven't seen any of the messages you're describing, but it sounds like they would be a good addition to /dev/null, which is what I use to suppress capital city "spam".

Hi Phanx,

Finally I got time to try the new version^^ But a bunch of error message pops up @@ I checked and found out those are related to the zhCN locale file. enUS is using AceLocale but not zhCN. I corrected it and some other errors. Every works beautiful now. I've email the file to your hotmail box.

Also, I found the libs folder in this addon not include AceLocale lib, maybe it should be added?

enUS isn't using AceLocale either; the enUS file isn't even used. AceLocale is unnecessary bloat for simple translations. I switched PhanxChat over to using the same localization system I use in my other addons now.

Edit: uploading a fix for your issue now.

Everynow and then I'm seeing a weird linewrap issue, when a new line starts on the far right end of a previous line and then continues to wrap.

Noticed this in "1 General" viewing.

Some settings i have that may be relevant:
names brackets: none
scroll: on
channels short: off
channels shortnames: off

The only thing I can see in the text that sort of looks the same when it happens, is always when a certain person talks... and seems like if that persons name has Mac-Option-Chars in the name, like: Bøøty or José.

Sorry, I dont have more info on the glitch...

Could you get a screenshot?

Are you using any custom fonts? Does the problem still happen when you disable them?

Does the problem still happen if you resizes your chat frame?

If you can consistently reproduce the issue (i.e. it happens every time Bøøty says anything), disable PhanxChat entirely, and then get Bøøty to say something to you that would normally wrap to multiple lines. Does the problem still happen?

No custom fonts.

No other chat window mods (other than ChatSounds, which was off when this occurred).

I've only moved the chat frame closer to the left edge (since I disabled those scrollbuttons), not resized.

I will try, but the frequency of people talking in General with weird names isn't often... and all of the last couple days I didnt see any linewrap issues, but then I didn't see anyone with goofy names speaking. I will try to prod some more when I am on to see if I can get it going. Its one of ~those bugs~ that dont happen so often its easy to trace it down

Let me know if you encounter the issue again. If you do, try to get a screenshot, and then disable PhanxChat and try to get the same person to message you again. At this point my thought is that the bug isn't caused by my addon, since text wrapping is handled entirely by Blizzard's code and PhanxChat doesn't touch that.

I've been playing... and wouldn't you know it... hasn't happened again! When it did occur, it was always in [General 1]. Never a private message, never party, nor spatial. Im not sure what other mod could cause it, since no other mod I have enabled is for chat. I will keep an eye out though and do what you say. I just thought it may be this mod, as it never happened before I downloaded this mod and installed it. Then again... it never happened before 2.2.0 ... sooooo could be a blizzard thing. I will keep you posted!

Just wondering if there's any desire to add class colouring to the names of folks in BGs?

Nope. The battleground score frame is not the chat box, and unlike many other mods, PhanxChat will not fall victim to "feature creep" by expanding its scope to try to cover everything in the game. Many battleground mods I've seen add class coloring to the score frame.
