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!

Simple request.

I would love it if you'd actually change the zip file to just include the "ChatLog" folder - just uniformity with most other addons. Minor convenience is all.

Thank you for this wonderful addon!

I will probably do it. The problem is that it is quite CPU-consuming to do it, especially in raid when a *lot* of events are displayed in the chat.

My idea is to limit the combat log to only the events that affect the player. Dunno though if people would prefer to log really everything in the log.

@ ReverenD & TazRulez: I am using an EditBox to display the logs in the Copy Window. The reason: you are able to copy the text only if it is in an EditBox. Note that the Blizzard's UI EditBox frame has some limitations on the number of characters it can contain. If this number goes over its limit, it will display "..." where the correct text should be displayed.

A workaround is to edit the "ChatLog.lua" file in Interface\AddOns\ChatLog and to set the ["copywindowmaxlines"] to a value under 200 (try 150). I will set this value to its new value in the next Release of ChatLog.

PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT be able to develop ChatLog during the two next weeks, I'm on vacations But there will be a new release when I will come back

Copy Window not Logging?

Not sure if anyone else has had this problem, it started to occur just before the WoW 2.0 patch as well.

When I open a log and click on Copy, it opens the new window normally. However, when I scroll down to where the newest content should be, it stops showing any text, but continues to scroll down for quite some ways. the last text viewable usually starts with a '[H Play' or ends with a '.......' in the middle of a word. Here are a couple screens to show what I mean. Oh, and it doesnt seem to matter weather or not that particular log has reached its limit of 1000 lines or not.

Now there is no issue showing up to date chat happening on the main Chatlog when you first open it up, only in the Copy window.

I will obviously be reading the posts here, but less often, so if you want a quick answer please go on Curse-Gaming. Thanks
