Elephant  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.3.2
by: pb_ee1 [More]
"Shoot... what did he say again? I just got disconnected."
"Didn't that guy already loot that rare item 10 minutes ago?"
"I really wish I could remember the name of the item linked on the guild chat yesterday at 9:00 PM."
...

Already been in one of these situations? Don't be annoyed anymore, here is the solution!

Solution to chat loss annoyance

Elephant logs the chat for you in the background. It saves the WHISPER & BATTLE.NET, RAID & BATTLEGROUND, PARTY, GUILD, SAY, YELL and OFFICER chats separately, but also all general chats (General, Trade, LocalDefense, ...), custom chats you are currently on, achievements, loots and finally system messages (auctions, rolls, server going down, ...). You can easily go through all these logs, thanks to a straightforward interface displaying all the access buttons on the right side of the main window. You can access the options of the addon by typing /elephant and also bind a key to pop up the addon.

Elephant gives you the ability to copy logs to another application. A BBCode feature is even included, letting you copy/paste a chat with colors and links to an item database in a very quick and simple way to your favorite forum.

This is THE addon that you should install if you want to never forget what somebody told you in game. Be a pro of managing hell tells, go peacefully AFK for a few minutes, or be an awesome role player. Elephant is also perfectly designed for Guild Leaders, Officers and Raid Leaders particularly because it saves the chats even when you get disconnected.

Main features
* Logs the chats in the background, with a limit of 1000 lines for each chat (Blizzard's default is 161 lines for everything).
* Saves the logs when you log out or get disconnected.
* Display the chats with timestamps, or using your Prat settings if you have it installed.
* Copy the chat and paste it in other applications (BBCode supported!).
* Save the chat and combat log in two different files on your computer.

Other features
* Use filters to avoid logging some of the custom channels you join.
* Enable/disable logging for each chat separately.
* Item links in logs are displayed in their proper color and are clickable.
* Player names in the main window are clickable.
* ...and much more!

More configuration would be great. I'd love to be able to choose exactly what goes in what category.
Also, an option to put /rolls into the loot chat window would be excellent.
Clickable tradeskill links would be nice too. Though I doubt it would be easy to code into the mod.

Overall, a great addon.
Thank you very much for your hard work in the WoW addon community.



PS. Curse sucks, can't even post a comment. Tried in FF and IE.

The addon has been abandoned, or the author does not visit this place often ?

Code line:

Error popped while zoning from Dalaran to Darnassus, not reproducible on purpose. (Potentially it trips when city channels change at the wrong moment?)

Question: where do I turn off the timestamps? I don't care about them. I use Prat, and I don't have timestamps turned on in Prat either. I've looked in the options, but its prolly in the lua, if you could point me to the right place that would be great.

Also, even though I've never changed it, it only seems to copy 250 lines of any of the chats I'm logging. Is the option to change that in the lua too and if so, where? In the lua on line 72 is the section for log size, and the max log size is 1000 lines, but all my logs in Elephant in-game say "201/250" or "4/250" lines.

The addon is still using the FubarPlugin, I want to migrate it to Broker. But I can't say when it will be done. Be sure it's something I've noted and I wish to implement ASAP.

Thanks

@Snave & Nastarria: Thanks for the bug report. I note it. I'll look into it asap (I'm using Prat too).

@Snave: Simply right-click-and-drag the arrow and you should be able to move it.

@Nastarria: Try looking for a WoWChat.txt or a WoWChatLog.txt file (or something similar) in the Logs folder. The logging is made by WoW, cannot be controlled by Elephant (thus everything or nothing) and the format cannot be changed as well.

Really handy addon, thanks a lot for your time developing it.

I have the same problem when i enable the prat option, the only reason i want to use it really is to colour names by class but really that's not the end of the world.

One suggestion i have would be if you could make the button (from the show button option) moveable? At the moment i have the other chat buttons hidden and having a arrow in the right middle of my chat is a little out of place.

I lied when i said one suggestion, another one would to incorporate a "clear all" option when you right click the addon rather than having to clear each window one by one, if you could add right click functionality to the chat box button also that would be sexual.

Thanks again!

3: D'oh. Never happened. Maybe an interference of another addon. Did you try to reset all settings just to see if it fixes the problem?
hmmm... I mustn't have the option enabled then... nothing in wow/logs to do with elephant.

2: Ahh, Makes sence.

3: Well, it dosn't seem to do it now (odd)... One thing I do remember doing though, but It may have been something diffrent, is I turned on Prat Format (Or what ever the Prat option is) then the tripling effect happened, but I turned it off and hasn't happened... I'll try turning it back on and let you know if it happens again.

and thanks for the Mod, It's really handy...

Also, the Log that is saved to the computer, is it in BB code or is it like it is in game, minus colour?

EDIT:
It's the Prat option that make the text double/triple (It was just doubled today)

Re: The coloring of custom channels is wrong

Originally posted by Everdreamer

Here is my not-so-pretty fix (in Core-Interface.lua)
Code:
	else
		typeInfo = "CHANNEL1"
		
		local chlist = { GetChannelList() }
		local chindex,chname
		local t = {}
		for i,v in ipairs(chlist) do
			if math.fmod(i,2) == 1 then
				chindex = v
			else -- math.fmod(i,2) == 0
				chname = v
				t[chindex] = chname
			end
		end

		for k,v in pairs(t) do
			if string.lower(v) == string.lower(self.db.char.logs[self.db.char.currentlogindex].name) then
				typeInfo = "CHANNEL" .. k
				break
			end
		end
Fixed in next beta release (should be before end of week).

I really like this addon, but I seem to be having some issues.

1: dose this addon make a log readable outside of the game? if so, where can it be located? and dose it only log the channels You tell it to? (IE just guild and Officer channels.)

2: With the Copy, I couldn't copy the full days chat, even though it is under the line limit.

3: All the lines are done in 3 last time I looked... as in, everything would be tripled.
Bob look at that
Bob look at that
Bob look at that
... you get the idea...

I really love this addon, it helps... or would help me with being an officer in my guild...
Thanks.
