  • 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 “/clear” or “/clearchat” to clear all visible chat windows.
  • Type “/clear all” or “/clearchat all” 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!
Language Support
Works in all languages. Translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 (partial). Add or update translations for any locale on CurseForge!
Feedback
Post a ticket or comment. If you are reporting a bug, please include directions I can follow to reproduce the bug, whether it still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the related error message (if any) from Bugger.

The following features will never be added to PhanxChat, and requests for them will be deleted, so please just don't bother posting such requests:
  • Reskinned or recolored edit box, chat tabs, or anything else

Do you get the same error when all addons except for PhanxChat are disabled?

I love PhanxChat for its simplicity, but there's one annoyance: it taints the objective tracker frame. When I try to use a quest item from the objective tracker I get the error "PhanxChat has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI."

Is this fixable?

I don't usually care about scrolling back to re-read past text in General, but Trade channel might be a different story.

Taking screenshots, mostly, so I can clear the General tab (or whatever active window is selected) without needing to clear all the other relevant chat windows that may have text I want to keep.

I understand the usefulness of having a "clear all" command in the event people have multiple chat windows pulled out and staged around the interface, and thus want to clear them all at once. However, if someone has all the chat windows grouped together (by default) with only the active chat window visible, the clear all option becomes less useful.

Example: If someone had a chat window specifically assigned for all whispers or guild chat, they may not want to have a clear all affect that window, but they still want to clear the General tab.

Okay, just checking. I wanted to see if there was an option to clear the currently active window, not all of them at once. I did find this addon, which appears to work just fine. I wanted to ask you first before resorting to using another addon to achieve my goal.

Options & Commands
  • Type “/pchat” for options, or find them in the Interface Options.
  • Type “/pchat clear” to clear all chat windows.

I couldn't reproduce this. I normally use 18pt (dear science, please hurry up and invent cybernetic eye replacements already, and also let them shoot lasers) but just tried setting it to several different sizes, and each time it was saved through a /reload or relog. Double-check that your version is up to date, and try resetting the addon's config:

Code:
/run PhanxChatDB = nil; ReloadUI()
If that doesn't work, check if it still happens when all other addons are disabled, and make sure you have some kind of error display turned on to catch any potential error message. I'll be away tomorrow for the holiday, but I'll investigate further on Friday if needed.

Thanks for the reply! I started by using the chat tabs, then thought about changing it in the PhanxChat config. So, changed it from 12pt to 14pt there, exited the game, and came back in - was back at 12pt.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the great addon Phanx!

One thing that I'm having an issue with - changing the font size for a tab - it doesn't save. I log out and back in it goes back to the default.

Any ideas?
