PhanxChat  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.2.253
by: Phanx, Akkorian

  • 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.

Gmotd seems to work right now - great job.

I think i found a little bug in class coloring: It seems not to work for players with sepcial characters in their name, like "á" or something like that.

Oops. Uploading a fix now. Also fixed a bug with trying to disable tab locking.

Menu Button

After installing ver 2.0.1 i am getting an error message when trying to disable the menu button (/pchat menu).

Interface\AddOns\PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua: 381: attempt to index global 'm' (a nil value)

[Edit]

Work-Around / Debug:

AddOns\PhanxChat\PhanxChat.lua - line 381

Original
if self.db.profile.menu then m:Hide() else m:Show() end

Modified
if self.db.profile.menu then ChatFrameMenuButton:Hide() else ChatFrameMenuButton:Show() end

I am getting the same error.
Also, when it first loaded the options indicated that the edit window should be on top but it was on the bottom. I did /pchat edit which change it to Off and it stayed on the bottom, then did it again and it moved to the top. Meny was doing the samething so I thought I just needed to cycle it as well but as soon as I tried I got the same error as Mulesh.

I would really like to dump Prat as it's just too much for me.

One thing that I don't see in the features that I was using vChat for was up-arrow history or the last couple of commands in the edit box.

Am I missing something or does Phanx have that? Can we get it?

Re: error
My fault, as I didn't test the menu button toggle after I threw it in and moved some code around. Fixed in 2.0.2 which I just uploaded and should appear shortly.

Re: arrow history
It's not in right now. The game's default is for alt + up arrow to access previous commands. I could probably add an alt-free option.

Also, it amuses me how people simply refer to this as "Phanx" when I named it after myself. And by "myself" I mean my WoW main. :P

The chat strings isn't working for the GUILD chat.

Also the version here in wowinterface gives an error when loading got the one from ui.worldofwar.net (the 2.0.2).

Yes, that's because updates don't appear on WoWInterface immediately. Uploads have to be approved by an administrator after they're scanned for viruses and such, so it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour or so.

Just posting "it doesn't work" doesn't help me fix the problem. In this case someone on ui.wow posted the same issue with more information, and I was able to fix it. Uploaded 2.0.3, should be up soon.

hmmm... up arrow worked... I wonder if another mod is providing it.

As for getting the latest version, since it's an Ace mod can you get this into their SVN so I can auto update via WoWAceUpdater

Brado --
Not sure... it worked for me with ALT-R when I put the feature in, and I haven't changed any of the TellTarget stuff. I'll take a look at it again...

m0j0 --
I'll get it up there at some point, yeah... I've got access, I've just been lazy and haven't gotten around to figuring out how to work with it.

Kougar:

Go to this link - http://www.wowace.com/files/ and download Ace 2 with "r23407" next to it. Unzip and open each folder, copy each folders respective ".lua" file and copy it over into the PhanxChat folder.

You don't have to copy over the .toc file. It's kind of a long process, but it fixed the error for me. Hope it helps.
