  • 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

(*) 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.

Class Colors

Hi,

Is there anyway to change the class colors? Some of the class colors seem a little bit off, I would like to make them more like the default colors used in the guild window.

The only thing I could fine was on line 177, but I'm not quite sure what to make of that.

I tried searching around to see if anyone had already asked this but was unable to find anything.

Thanks.

Well, considering that PhanxChat gets its colors from Blizzard's global RAID_CLASS_COLORS table, I'm not sure how they could be different at all, unless you have another addon that's changing RAID_CLASS_COLORS after PhanxChat reads it, or another addon that colors the guild window from a hardcoded list that doesn't match RAID_CLASS_COLORS.

That said, if you want to change the colors in PhanxChat, you'll need to find where it's reading out of RAID_CLASS_COLORS and give it your own table instead, or modify specific values in the local table created.

Thanks for the reply, and nevermind, I seem to be color blind...

I just updated my version of PhanxChat tonight, I could have ~sworn~ the colors used to be a bit softer and lighter toned, but they seem to match up now.

Suppress Problem

I can't seem to get the "suppress repeats" or "suppress channels" to function. This is going to sound crazy ... but when I type /pchat suppress channels ... it won't even allow me to press enter. I can delete any one letter or change any one letter and it will simply bring up the /pchat menu.

Strange.

As stated in the addon description:

WotLK Note: PhanxChat is essentially functional in WotLK, and I will post an official "WotLK-compatible" version soon.
I do have a beta key, but my time is extremely limited right now, so I haven't been able to do proper testing to make sure everything is fully functional and not causing problems with other addons. In the brief time I have been able to play in the beta, I haven't seen any problems, though. If you are playing in the beta and encounter any issues, please report them.

I spend a lot of time in my custom ui, when ists finishd i w'll upload it here. phanx is just the right addon i looked for. Back to topic;

i've a problem that makes Phanx unusable for me. It is hidden by textures i made (from kgpanels), shown on this screenshot:
http://www.abload.de/image.php?img=phanxdaw.jpg

Ok, maybe this changing "layer" thing is editable in the lua, but where? As a noncoder like me it's not easy to find the right value or implement this feature.

for any help, im deeply grateful.

PhanxChat doesn't modify the strata or level of the chat frame in any way; the problem likely lies with your kgPanels frame/texture being on too high a frame strata or frame level. If you can't figure it out, you should find the kgPanels thread on forums.wowace.com and ask for help there.

Before you release that UI, you may want to check the licenses of the addons you plan to include. The license of PhanxChat, as found in the README.TXT file that's included in the addon download, specifically forbids the addon from being redistributed in any way, including as part of a compilation:

You MAY NOT include this addon in compilations or otherwise redistribute it without the express prior consent of its author.
Other addons may have similar or other restrictions on redistribution. However, if an addon doesn't spell out any license terms, under US copyright law it defaults to being copyrighted to its author with all rights reserved, which means you can't include it in your compilation without obtaining permission from its author. This makes the above quoted clause in my license not specifically necessary, but unfortunately the majority of people who release compilations have no awareness of copyright law and assume that no explicit license terms mean "you can do anything you want with this", which is not the case.

I have found a way without touching your code. Kgpanels has settings for stratas. I used two panels at the same place one for the wood textures and one for border. For my ui it's just necessary to put it all in one panel and set it to background strata.

This is a generell problem in many postet compilations, i think. Every addon has his own author license rights. This makes not easy to keep conditions. In addition some people don't understand all written text in english (my english isn't the best too.)

Thanks for this information about copyrights. i take care about it! I w'll read your readme. It's not my opinion to make money, my compilation should be free for everyone. I leave all addons in original state. Forbidden "redistrubution" in any way makes not easy. In this case im remove it from my ui and the "users" must download phanxchat manualy from this site.

Yes, I have on occasion had to report compilations that included my addons. As for every author having the freedom to set his or her own license terms, yes, that's a freedom guaranteed under copyright. Some authors are okay with their work being passed around. I am not. People who don't understand English well enough to read license terms in English should either stick to redistributing addons with license terms written in a language they do understand, or learn English better. Ignorance is not an excuse to violate law.

Yes, that's the idea... if you like my addon, and want to share it with others, you're welcome to give them the link to my download page, and say "click this link and download this addon!" This way I maintain control over where the addon is available, and can guarantee that users are always getting the most recent version without any modifications.

Great addon, love it very much! Thanks a lot Phanx!

EDIT: This post was being rude in terms of stating the obvious. Changed to show that I'm not a bad person...

I've got a lua error on my game. It just happened recently. It says, and I quote

"Interface\Addons\Phanxchat\core.lua:327;attempt to index local 'frame' (a number value)"

The error does not go away unless I disable display lua errorws. I'm playing on a Mac, Tiger OSX if it makes a difference. It's the most recent version I believe. 2.4.3.18.
