About Elephant

"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!

    I've been using the 2.5.9 beta since it was released, but Elephant still doesn't log the new Party Leader chat. This has been bugging me a bit, as I sometimes RP in party chat, and like to keep a log of it, but one person's messages are always left out. I've converted the party to a raid as a temporary work-around, but that wouldn't help much if we were trying to level at the time.
  • #376
    I love this addon. Thank you heaps for your great work.

    Although, I too am getting the %s in place of the player's name for achievements. Considering the achievements now have their own section, I guess it's not a known bug on the todo list, but rather another addon clashing perhaps? My first guess would be Prat. I don't have any other chat modifying addons.. that come to mind :)
  • #375
    anyway to increase the size of the text?

  • #373
    Is it possible to filter certain things that are said in trade chan? For example i am an enchanter and i like to watch trade channel for people that need enchants.
  • #372
    I'm not sure when this started happening, but in my achievement log, Elephant is showing %s for the name of the person. So I can't actually see who got the achievement, just which achievements were earned.
  • #370
    Is there a way to change the log time to be the same as my Server time? It is currently displaying my local time which is 2 hours behind Server Time.

    Thanks
  • #369
    I get this error when zoning into new places. I think this particular one was when i joined Isle of Conquest - but it pretty much can happen when zoning into anywhere - stormwind, ulduar, dalaran, etc

    Hi,
    Is there an offline viewer for elephant logs? I just installed it on Monday night, and here it is Tuesday morning with no way to log on and export the elephant logs. I'll go have a look at WoWChatLog.txt and WoWCombatLog.txt, but i was wondering if there'd be an offline viewer with a pretty presentation like the one I see in the screenshots of the online viewer.
    Peace.

  • #365
    Hi there,

    I've installed Elephant and it's great, but I can't seem to locate the chat log at all. I've checked for the WoWChatLog.txt file throughout my computer and I am set up for logging in the interface in the game. It just doesn't appear.

    Is there a problem if I'm on Vista 64? Could another addon interfere with logging? I'm very anxious to fix this.

    Thanks so much.

    Greetings,

    how di I set Elephant to show the chat of all my characters in all my other characters? I've created a twink - my first one, that is - and I've been trying to find out how to get my main's chat to show while I'm logged in with my twink and vice versa. How do I do that?

    All the best
