  • 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.

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!

Thanks, that sorted it

No, and it probably won’t be added. I think Phanx has specifically declined that request several times in the past, and I don’t have any interest in it either. You could install CCopy, which is a small standalone addon that provides chat copying functionality. I haven’t tried it myself, but it should work just fine with PhanxChat. If you try it, and have any problems running both addons, let me know.

I sometimes can't click any of the chat tabs, as for some reason, the addon things I'm clicking the edit box (it's not open and it's set to "above" the chat frame).

I’ll be taking care of PhanxChat for a while, since Phanx is taking a break from addons. I wrote the Real ID-related parts of PhanxChat, so I’m fairly familiar with the code already. I just posted an update with a few minor fixes for Cataclysm. If you find any other issues, please post a bug report so I can look into it.

Version 4.0.3.118
  • Updated Real ID name replacement for WoW 4.0
  • Fixed the cursor when resizing the chat frame

Yup, confirmed while using Prat too.
Doesn't appear without chat addon.
Strange, I'll stay on PhanXchat so! :P

PhanxChat doesn't do anything with languages. The only thing it does that's marginally related to languages is hide the Chat Menu button (the one you click to get a dropdown menu of chat functions, including changing which language you're speaking). Simply disable PhanxChat's "Hide Buttons" option, click on the Chat Menu button and change your language to Common (or whatever you want), and then re-enable "Hide Buttons". This is not a bug, at least not in PhanxChat. It may be a bug on Blizzard's end with race changes; I've never race changed, so I wouldn't know.

Don't know why, I made a race change yesterday.
After this, when PhanXchat is activated, my languages auto is on Gnomish & not Common.
Can't fix this.

If no global channels appear in the Blizzard chat config window, that's because you're not actually in those channels. Open your Social window (the one with the Friends and Ignore panels) and click the "Chat" tab at the bottom. You'll see a list of channels you're currently in. I'm about 99% sure that you won't see any global channels (General, Trade, LocalDefense, GuildRecruitment, or LookingForGroup) there. To join them, simply type "/join general" or "/join trade".

not sure if it's something 4.0.3a broke, but I can't change the Global Channels to use class color. Global Channels don't even show up under that tab when I'm changing the chatbox settings. o_O I even reset to Defaults and still missing. Not major, just a nice thing to have. ^^ the regular channel options show up, like party and raid, etc.

I understand, just thought I'd ask. But tonight I noticed that it's no longer even necessary.. with 4.0.1 they removed my Dwarf's ability to speak Draconic. :'(

I remember using an addon that did just that, but I don't remember the name of it. It was 4+ years ago, but nothing has changed with slash command creation or the language API, so it should still work, if you can find it. It's not something I have the inclination to write, either as a standalone addon or as an addition to PhanxChat, sorry.

Thanks for the suggestions for a language addon. Unfortunately, SlashLanguage only switches back and forth to your second known language, which wouldn't work with the 3 languages my Dwarf knows. Babel sounded good, but is dependent on a Broker (an older version is dependent on Fu, but I use neither).

Phanx, do you think it'd be too much to include a simple command for this? Just something like "/lan [nameoflanguage]" to set it, nothing more.

(moments like this I wish I knew lua, so that I could make the simplest of addons that does only that - change your language through a slash command)
