  • 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.

Please DO NOT send me PMs asking for help, reporting bugs, or requesting features. To report a bug or suggest a feature, see the instructions below. To get help, post a comment. I read and respond to every ticket and comment!

Whispers? Loot messages? Are there specific player names or items that consistently exhibit this issue? Did you disable PhanxChat entirely and see if the issue persisted?
I'll try to do some tests and get a screenshot up today.

Yeah, it's PChat related. I disabled PChat and the bug went away, re-enabled it and the bug came back. It appears to only happen for characters that I know the class of (characters that PCchat has remembered class colors for, such as myself, guildys, and party members). Unknown classes, such as those in the trade channel do not display the link bugs.

Going by the change log I'm wondering if your url link fix is somehow getting applied to other links as well. Did you change anything involving class colors, as I could see that as causing the problem too.

A screenshot is displayed below. Tested on my level 1 test character, but I first noticed the bug on my level 80 druid. Notice how the trade channel link is fine, but the two links I created myself are not displaying correctly. I also hovered over the achievement link to show that the tooltips still display correctly.

Re: Links

Can you tell me which item you linked in that screenshot? I just deleted my saved variables for PhanxChat, created a new character, and logged on with only PhanxChat enabled. I linked a Hearthstone in say, yell, whisper, and general chat, without seeing the issue you're seeing.

Also, please try with only PhanxChat enabled. Your screenshot clearly has some addon skinning the tooltip, at least...

I disabled PhanxChat's class coloring and it went away. I was also using teknicolor along with PhanxChat cause it does a couple of other things PhanxChat does not. The two worked together just fine until 3.1.1.48-beta.

So I had to run just one or the other. Problem is fixed now.

Re: Re: Re: Links

Yeah, running two addons that are trying to do the same thing generally causes problems... that's why I ask people to reproduce problems with ONLY the addon they're blaming enabled.

I'm having a similar problem to GRiM, apparently all guild channel messages are NOT having the class colors shown for some reason, ALSO the names in guild messages are being put in brackets INSTEAD of my custom look which was working with the previous versions...

everything shows as green text in this format:
[G] [Name]: message here...

What I expected to happen is this:
[G] <Name>: Message here...

Not sure how to fix this, what I have tried ends up ALWAYS having the brackets ie. [G] <[Name]>

Also as far as I can tell all other channels are formatted properly...

I don't know if it is relevant to the problem I am having but I have 3 separate chat windows, left contains general/trade/says/etc... middle has party/raid chat, and right has only guild related chat...

Please advise

Re: Re: Re: Class colors are borken

*Update*

Ok apparently it does have something to do with the 3rd window, I just tested other channels in that window and they do the same thing, no colorization, and only bracketed names...

Please see the "Reporting Bugs" section in the addon description and follow the directions there. I am not experiencing this issue and will need more than a screenshot to figure out why you are experiencing it.

not seeing any difference between the previous version(3.1.1.49-beta) and this one(3.2.0.50)

The character names are still grey until I a shift click on them to find out what class they are.

In the previous version(3.1.1.49-beta) I could disable the name coloring and the names would be colored appropriately.

yes i submitted this as a bug..

Hmm... either I somehow committed 2 revisions without making any changes, or WoWI's packager screwed up. I'll repost the update shortly.

Okay, the update is correctly posted now.

Hopefully obvious, but if your locale hasn't patched to WoW 3.2 yet, don't update to the latest version of PhanxChat yet!

As I am not experiencing any such errors myself, I can only assume it is a problem caused by another addon. Please log in with only PhanxChat enabled and see if the problem persists. If it still occurs, please use the Bug Reports button underneath the big Download button and post a bug report. If it does not occur, start enabling your other addons until the problem comes back. Reading your error message, my best guess is that GuildGreet has not been properly updated to support the changes to the chat system in 3.2 with regard to player name coloring, and is incorrectly hooking chat functions.
