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!

EDIT: If you are having problems to display the System Messages tab, please reset your settings. This should fix it ;-)

Here's Hoping...

ETA: ANSWERING MY OWN QUESTION: It's updated on Curse. (putting this in for anyone else who tends to check here first...)


Does this addon need anything to work with 5.0.4 / MoP ? other than 'load out of date addons' checked? I haven't had a chance to check Curse, my machine was down completely since before the patch...

I just updated it with the latest version, sorry for that!
Thank you! This website plays much nicer with my linux box than Curse does. Very much appreciated!

Hello, great addon.

I was not able to find this anywhere so I ask here.

is there a global command for this addon that will clear all the chat logged at once?

/elephant all clear etc....

It is a bit tedious manually clearing for each type, guild, raid, whisper etc/

Thank you.

Is this addon still maintained? If so, any chance of an update to support RealID conversations and their logging?

If not, which would be unfortunate, are there any other addons that are still maintained and provide the same or similar functionaliy? I couldn't find any when I looked. None.

Elephant v2.9.5-beta from here (and the latest v2.5.9.2-beta from WowAce at this link) has an old bug from over a year ago that has yet to be fixed still occurring regularly:

Code:
["message"] = "Elephant-2.9.5.2-beta\\Event-Handle.lua:24: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)\n\n  ---",
            ["type"] = "error",
            ["session"] = 593,
            ["counter"] = 1,
        }, -- [220]
Its happened three times in the past week. Latest occurrence in the middle of a ToTGC10 run. Previous errors right after zoning into the ToTC25 instance and another in the middle of a ToTC10 run.

Identical error each time and the counter stayed at "1". The Elephant frame was never opened when they happened; the errors just happened randomly. The same bug happened to other people way back after WotLK was released in late 2008 here and here as well as in posts below. As well as posts on the Curse thread.

Don't like my BugSack/BugGrabber filling up with repeating errors, so stopping using Elephant for now. Hope you can fix this old bug.

Update for 3.3 patch. Sorry for the delay!

Also, an option to put /rolls into the loot chat window would be excellent.
True.

Clickable tradeskill links would be nice too. Though I doubt it would be easy to code into the mod.
Dunno if it's easily doable. I'll check that!

Another suggestion;

It would be nice if the fubar interface had more features.

I really don't care which channels it's monitoring..
Some sort of drop-down menu showing recent chat would be nice.
