Welcome to Phanx’s WoWInterface Portal.
Here you’ll find my published WoW addons
(of course). My addons are also available on Curse
, but I use WoWInterface as my main base of operations, so if you have a problem, suggestion, question, or comment, you’ll get a quicker response if you post here.
✻ Need help with one of my addons?
- For problems or suggestions related to Grid, use the WowAce ticket tracker.
- For problems or suggestions related to my other addons, use the Bug Report and Feature Request links on the addon’s download page.
- For general questions or comments about my addons, post a comment on the addon’s download page.
I can answer questions in English, Español, and (ein bisschen) Deutsch. If you post in another language, I'll do my best with Google Translate.
✻ Need help with someone else’s addon?
In addition to posting on the addon’s download page and/or ticket tracker, the following resources may help you:
✻ Need help writing or modifying an addon?
I do not provide any private support or tutoring, and I am not for hire. If you are looking for someone to help you debug code, write code, or teach you how to write addons for WoW, post in one of these forums:
I read all of these forums, and respond to many posts there, as do many other addon authors and community members.
The following resources may also be helpful:
And here are some resources related to localizing addons:
Finally, you should review the following pages to make sure your addon idea is actually possible:
✻ Need to contact me privately?

Any such messages will be replied by a form letter with the same instructions and links that are on this page, or simply ignored.

I'm still not raiding, or even playing on a regular basis, but my account is active, and I'll be resuming maintenance on all of my addons. Most addon work will occur on Saturdays and/or Sundays, so don't assume I'm dead if you post a comment or ticket early in the week and don't get an immediate response.

As many of you may already know if you've read many of my recent forum posts or addon comments, I've been pretty busy lately, and haven't had much time to spend working on my addons. I've also been spending a smaller percentage of my spare time playing WoW. I quit raiding months ago, and though I did level up to 85 in Cataclysm, the expansion has thus far failed to rekindle the enthusiasm I've felt for the game over most of the last six years. So, I've decided to officially take a break.
My game subscription will (probably) stay active, and I'll still check the forums and my addon comments fairly regularly. My good friend Akkorian will be taking over primary maintenance on most of my addons for a while.
I'm also looking for qualified people to permanently take over a few of my addons. I haven't used OnScreenHealth myself in over a year, and I no longer play the hunter for which I wrote Creature Comforts. If you have experience developing and maintaining WoW addons, actively use Creature Comforts and/or OnScreenHealth, and are interested in adopting it/them, send me a PM.
