PhanxChat  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3.87
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.

whispers

Thanks for this great addon, but it dont have function, that Chatbox addon had. (editting whisper tags to:

From:[whisper Sender's name] Hello
To:[whisper Target's name] Hello

there is some code for that (i'm editing your Core.lua if i want it now)

Code:
CHAT_WHISPER_GET = "From %s:\32"
CHAT_WHISPER_INFORM_GET = "To %s:\32"
(i think u know what to do with this)

please add it

Just pointing out that the shaman class color has changed from cyan to dark blue in the last patch.

Other than that little inconsistency I really like your add on, thanks!

Feature Request

It would be really nice if there was a chat frame mod that would allow you to put the tabs on the bottom rather then the input box at the top.

I was thinking of doing a layout with my chat box at the top of the screen but having the tabs/chat input at the bottom becomes sensible

Just got back from a week in Anaheim at BlizzCon.

azorecek:
Whisper chat strings are already shortened, along with all other chat strings and server channel names. If you have this feature enabled, and whisper chat strings are not being shortened, try disabling and re-enabling short strings. If this doesn't work, try deleting your PhanxChat saved variables. If the problem still persists, try disabling all other addons. Whisper strings are shortened fine for me. Let me know if you still have the problem.

damodar:
I won't add them to the main addon, as I have no need for them and don't particularly want 20 more bindings cluttering up my binding interface, but if you want bindings for each chat type and numbered channel, replace the Bindings.xml file in the PhanxChat folder with this one:
http://phanx.net/addons/files/Bindings.xml

Fragglerock:
When you look at your chat logs, are there any specific circumstances under which chat stops being logged, or is it completely random? Do you have any other addons which control chat or combat logging?

Manticora:
The shaman class color being set to teal was intentional, as I find the new dark blue too difficult to read on backgrounds that make the other colors readable, and very clashing in raid frames. However, I've since simply replaced the shaman color in the global raid class colors table, so there's not really a need to hardcode it anymore. I'll change that in the next update.

nubjub:
Won't make it into the main addon, sorry. I can write a small addon to move them, though, sometime this week.

You should put your change log in your portal. I know there's people that are like:

"liek wur teh hel iz teh chge l0g!?!11!!"

My two cents.

For a complete version history, see the ReadMe.txt file included in the download.
I tried maintaining a changelog page for each addon on my portal, but I always forgot to update them, so I just removed them. If people are that interested they can download it and read the readme.

Just curious, but CPU usage jumped up a bit with r08 from r07; probably not a big deal, but wondering if the new changes account for this?

(Increase seen using Fubar_PerformanceFu, from .50-.75% in previous version to 1%-1.5% in r08)

Great mod btw, been using it for a long time .

Thanks! I'll add it in the next update.

Wllowy:
I just did a diff on r07 and r08, because I couldn't think of anything that should account for this, and indeed I don't see any changes that should increase CPU usage by that much. There's a tiny bit more work done at startup now, but that shouldn't cause an increase overall. Probably a long shot, but is PhanxChat the only Ace2 addon you use, or the first to load alphabetically?

Oh, pretty extensive list of Ace 2 addons; all the libraries are standalone, if that matters. It wouldn't be the first to load alphabetically, quite a things in front like AuldLangSyne, Bigwigs, Cartographer, etc. I'll play with it some more, and see if I can figure out where the difference is. Fwiw, the only parts of it I use are the hiding of chat buttons, the mousewheel scroll in window, and the shortening of channel names. As well as I can remember, most of the other features I disable.

Edit: Allright, got to tinker some after work, and this is what I've found. I've only got three addons/libraries that reguarly go above 1% usage when I'm at "idle", and these are Ace2, TabletLib, and PhanxChat. I did some flying from zone to zone, doing dailies, and watched both r07 and r08. With r07, Phanx sits at about .75%, and Ace2 sits at about 2.5%. With r08, Phanx sits closer to 2.1%; however, Ace2 sits at around 1.25%. I'm gonna chalk it up to one of those strange Ace2 things, though I don't know if the embed of Ace2 in r08 has anything to do with that. Seems to work fine, though .

Added option to include number with short channel names
Thanks for this! I have a non-standard chat channel that I hang out in, and it falls as different channel numbers on different characters. It's convenient to have the channel number so that I don't have to guess.

Is there any chance of an update to this marvelous addon, right now i am getting my edit box in the middle of my screen, all other mods are updated and it wasn't until this patch that there were any problems at all?

rayyna:
I'm not sure what could be causing the chat edit box to appear in the center of your screen... the section of code that moves it hasn't been touched since the first release, and anchors the edit box the the top of ChatFrame1. So unless ChatFrame1 is in the middle of your screen, the edit box shouldn't be there either. It's certainly not there for me. I do have a couple minor changes though that I've been meaning to upload (plus lostcup's zhCN translations), so let me know if you're still getting the errant edit box with the new version.

Phanx feature request

I tried to catch you at wow ace site other day. I used phanx chat for quite awhile. It lacks one feature I like. Align right on combat log. Would it be to hard to add this? or Do you know a standalone addon that does this?
