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!

The coloring of custom channels is wrong

The coloring of custom channels is wrong, for more information please check the documentation of API GetChannelList on WoWWiki

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

I was wondering if there was a way to access the combat log. I like to look it every now and then. I can't tell if I'm just missing it or if it might be a feature you could add.

Any plan to include a text search feature? It'd be nice to be able to search your own logs for a string.

Great addon!

Thanks for your suggestions, Khurzog, you gave me at least one idea for the next release (I'll put one on Wowinterface today but not containing the idea I just got).

I'm not pretty sure however i'll make Elephant resizable: the aim of this addon isn't to replace the chatframe but to be an useful addition to it.

@ Auraka: You are not the first person to ask for this. I'll see if I'll implement this in Elephant. It's not as simple as it seems.

this post is quite an abundant feature request, but i figure i might as well throw in my ideas. i just discovered elephant, like 30 minutes ago... and its amazing! i like it so much that i wish i could customize it down to be my chat frame. you see i like my chats tabbed out, and every time i make my own custom chat, things get extremely buggy. one of the things i hate the most is that when i lock my chat i completely lose my tabs :-X ive tried customchat, trinity chat, phanx, prat, chatter and more and have not been happy. something else im looking for is tab flashing so when
im looking at my party chat, and someone says something guild id be alerted. so what id like to see is a way to resize elephant and streamline the look so it can serve as a chat frame, then the icons would function as tabs (with hopefully some sort of flashing) i know this basically changes the entire mod and its unlikely you want to do that, but from what ive seen from elephant, i would be amazing to use it in that capacity

thanx again for this, of course ill use it however it comes

Would there be a way to toggle it to save across all my toons?

See the thing is, I have many alts, and sometimes need to switch mid conversation. So... yeah. That'd help a ton!

2.5 will be last release under the name of "ChatLog". Next releases (including combat log) will be released under "Elephant". Don't forget to look for this new title when you come back to get the new release! ;-)

There is a bug in the last release, you cannot click user names anymore in the log. It should be corrected quite soon

Update: it seems there is no bug at all, something was going wrong in my UI.
