  • 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

(*) 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.

Version 3.3.5.94

Due to file changes, you should completely uninstall your existing copy of the addon before installing this version. Removing your old saved variables is recommended, but not required.

  • Added a Shorten Player Names feature, which shortens player names by removing realm names from cross-realm players and last names from Real ID players.

  • Removed the Auto Start Chat Log feature, because I never used it.

  • Removed the Color Player Names feature, because it was just too much code and performance overhead to color the very few types of messages that the default UI doesn't already color, and also confused all the people who never read patch notes or change logs.

  • Translations are needed for all locales.

  • All existing translations for the configuration UI have been discarded, since none of them had been updated since the transition from slash commands to a GUI over a year ago. If you can provide translations for any locale, please send me a PM.

  • Additionally, several chat channels are currently only shortened in English locales, because nobody has provided translations for them. If you see a channel name that isn't shortened, please post a bug report ticket with your locale (eg. "German" or "deDE"), the English name of the channel (eg. "General"), the localized name of the channel (eg. "Allgemein"), and an appropriate short form for your locale (eg. "A").

Version 3.3.5.72
  • Updated for patch 3.3.5. NOT BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE.
  • Added an “Enable resize edges” option to add resize controls along all edges of chat frames, and remove the bottom-left-corner resize arrow. This basically just restores pre-3.3.5 chat frame resizing functionality.
  • Added a “Hide extra textures” option to hide the extra textures on chat tabs and chat edit boxes added in patch 3.3.5.
  • Removed the “Enable mousewheel scrolling” option, since this functionality is now provided by the default UI.
  • Modified the default UI's mousewheel scrolling to scroll more lines at a time, page up/down on ctrl, and top/bottom on shift.
  • Fixed a bug preventing custom short channel name formats from using the channel name in addition to the channel number.
  • Translations are needed for the new options in all locales. Also, major revisions are needed for several locales. If you can assist with translations for any locale, please send me a PM.

To be honest, I have not had my chat windows stacked in a very long time and therefore did not need tabs. In fact, I kept chat windows locked from the Blizz Interface options, so that I would not see any indication of the window other than the chat text. I overhauled my interface last night (wow, I actually went three months without changing anything!), stacked three chat windows together and this all just coincided with installing PhanxChat.

After asking some guildies if they knew how to make the tabs always visible (I got the same "hmmm" response, heh), I decided to ask here as it seemed appropriate.

Perhaps, this could turn into a feature request? A toggle for always visible chat tabs?

Hmm. You know, I'm not sure. I remember my chat tabs always used to be visible, long ago. I don't remember when that changed, or what I did. Were your tabs always visible before you installed PhanxChat? If so, try leaving tab flashing enabled. The option wording may be slightly confusing... by default it's enabled, which is the same as the default UI, and lets tabs flash normally, and turning it off activates the addon's "stop flashing" feature. I've just logged off for the night and am on my way to sleep, but I'll play around with things tomorrow and see if I can't figure out what makes the tabs go into hiding.

Chat Tabs??

I just installed this today and it works great, exactly as advertised!
But this created a question for me... I noticed the chat tabs flash option, but I can never see my chat tabs unless I mouse over the chat window. Is there a setting somewhere in the default ui or PhanxChat that would cause them to be hidden? I searched and searched, changed the alpha of my chat frames, locked the windows, unlocked the windows and scoured every checkbox in Blizz's Interface options, but I could not find a way to make the tabs always visible.

What do you see on the minimap button menu? Are other features of the addon working?

It sounds like you're somehow not loading the main addon file. Try deleting the addon and re-downloading it. In the PhanxChat addon folder you should have:
Bindings.xml
Locale-enUS.lua
PhanxChat.lua
PhanxChat.toc
PhanxChatFu.lua
ReadMe.txt

Please read the "Have a feature request?" section in the addon description above.

Timestamps have already been requested many times, and I have declined to add them just as many times. My view on timestamps is that they are worthless clutter, and my entire motivation for writing this addon is to add functionality while reducing clutter in the chat frame. As such, I will never add timestamps to my addon. There is a link in the description above to a standalone timestamp addon that will run just fine alongside my addon, and I'm sure there are other timestamp addons available if you look for them.

Uploaded version 20100-r07. This version changes the method for getting player classes from short who query results, so you will now get class colors for shift-clicked Blood Elves and Night Elves. It should also fix the issues with names containing special characters. I've actually had this fixed for about a week, just hadn't gotten around to uploading it. >_>

Hmm. Well, "Night Elf" is the problem, since the pattern is searching for a number (the level) followed by a single word (race) followed by one more single word (class), and since "Elf" is not a class, it's not coloring that name. I don't play Alliance, but it's probably an issue with blood elves as well. I really haven't spent a lot of time testing everything, so it's quite possible I've never shift-clicked an elf. :P

The guy who's not a night elf, I have no idea. The special character shouldn't pose a problem, since other names with special characters are being colored fine... I'll try to find someone with an accented O in their name to test on.

Could you possibly provide some specifics on which names it isn't picking up? With guild name and zone if possible.
In-game right now as I type this, this all coming from trade chat in Shat, I found 5 so far that did not colour properly:

Cutthemdown: Level 70 Night Elf Priest - Ironforge
Celore: Level 70 Night Elf Hunter <I N A C T I V E> - Shattrath City
Victory: Level 39 Draenei Paladin <Carpe Noctum> - Ironforge (On his name the "O" had a symbol, as well as the "e" in Carpe)
Shadowslayer: Level 70 Night Elf Hunter <Dark Rebellions> - Darnassus
Slyvin: Level 56 Night Elf Hunter <Dark Hour> - Stormwind City

Btw sorry if my comment reporting what exactly I meant with the bug seemed a bit smart ass or ungrateful. I appreciate yer work and I now use Phanx Chat, it's the perfect mod for me.

HOWEVER

""Anyway, r06 changes the search pattern for short who queries to be less specific""

Any way you could make it even more specific?

I downloaded and tested revision 06. Seemed to work fine...almost. I discovered that some names did not colour themselves when shift click. I'd say this would occur 1 out of 10 names give or take.

Oops. Uploading a repack now with the lib entires in the TOC. I delete them in my personal working copy, since having nonexistent files in the TOC adds to load time and fills up the FrameXML error log, and put that in the zip instead of the public release copy.

Anyway, r06 changes the search pattern for short who queries to be less specific (this should fix your problem Jackalantern), and adds an extra check to prevent errors when validating items in AtlasLoot. I need to dig through the AL code and see why this is happening in the first place, but for now this will work.
