  • 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!

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:

Chat tabs are showing for windows that are locked and non-interactive on mouseover. I don't think it used to be like this, but I've been on a WoW hiatus since February or so, so I'm not sure. Is this something that can (and if can, should) be included in PhanxChat? It's a trivial annoying thing.

I haven't seen anything like this, and can't see how anything in PhanxChat could move the chat tabs that way. Do you guys have any other addons that touch the chat frame, or any addons like Skinner that make broad changes to the UI?

Yeah. I vaguely remember noticing that a while back, but there is so rarely any communication at all in cross-server dungeon groups (and I don't PvP) that it wasn't irritating enough for me to remember. I'll look into it.

I noticed this when playing with PhanxChat for the first time last night. Unchecking and rechecking the option for class-colored names in the PhanxChat options panel fixed this problem for me.

Now, my issues:

I'd like to be able change the alpha of the chat window when I mouse over it. Coming from being a Prat 3.0 user, I'm very used to having a completely transparent chat window all the time, mouseover or not. I see this feature request is marked "won't add feature", which is a bit of a bummer for me. But that's ok if there's another way to accomplish it, another addon, whatever.

Also, I would like to change the font, just in the chat window(s) to game-included Fritz Quadrata.

Any pointers?

Thanks for a great addon!

Doubtful, as I think chat timestamps are totally worthless and have zero plans to ever enable them myself or add code relating to them in PhanxChat.

If you don't like the timestamp formats the default UI provides, any standalone timestamp addon that worked before 3.3.5 should still work just fine.

Are you sure that you didn't accidentally disable class coloring? I haven't seen any uncolored names, with the exception of guild achievement messages, which is an issue that's been around for a while that I've been too lazy to try to address.

I realize you're not a big fan of meddling with stuff that's already provided by Blizzard UI, but figured it'd be worth a shot. It's sort of a cosmetic thing for me (makes chat slightly easier to read ;x).

There a way to make PhanxChat noticeably separate the Blizzard timestamps to make it closer to the time stamps you'd be more used to in standard chatrooms other MMOs along with adding some sort of separator function for player names? (Yeah I read the declined features, i'm not asking for special time stamps, I just would like time stamp formatting ;x).

ie: [hh:mm:ss] [channel][name]: message

As it stands, Blizzard's default color by class doesn't seem to actually color anyone by class until you actually /who the person so everything comes out as just white text (or i'm doing it wrong, I have all of the checkboxes for Show Class Colors checked) and with nothing being noticeably differentiated besides the small colon, it's sort of difficult to read when stuff gets a little hectic.

Then is it possible to change the texture from Blizzard Dialog Border, to Blizzard Tooltip Border? My apologies for being a bother, and keep up the great work

If you're talking about the always-visible texture that appeared in patch 3.3.5, enable the "Hide extra textures" option.

If you're talking about the editbox object that appears when you are typing a message...

I've fixed the errors reported by Vranx and Twidget.

Holding off on posting a new release until I get clarification about the problem Kendian mentioned, and probably add some code to kill Blizzard's "click the tab to open the edit box" behavior when the edit box is at the top of the chat frame, so I can stop answering the same question over and over. >_<
