Ok, I have an add-on WoWScribe, that logs chat in the channels you prefer. My default (for guild meetings) is say, emotes (both regular & text) and guild. Now, this worked pre-1.7 -- saving the chat into the SavedVariables file. For 1.7, I started using the commands to put it into the WoWChatLog.txt file... but there's a couple of problems (which I've proven is a problem w/o my addon, using /chatlog).
Regular (non-text) emotes (i.e. CHAT_MSG_EMOTE & not CHAT_MSG_TEXT_EMOTE) are missing from the WoWChatLog.txt ... but we have crafting creation & spell casting/fading that show up.
The following was recorded (as Gwylonna) using /chatlog... I started it, did /cheer, then the /em checks her mail... then turned it off & logged.
Q u o t e:
10/4 17:39:17.593 [2. Trade] Blackswan: LTB Damage enchant for one handed weapon
10/4 17:39:17.796 [2. Trade] Hando: *Now opening Lockboxes at AH bridge *TIPS Appreciated!!
10/4 17:39:18.000 Daelen falls and loses 128 health.
10/4 17:39:19.203 Arondar creates Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:19.765 Arondar begins to cast Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:21.828 Arcane Brilliance fades from Sinnedra.
10/4 17:39:22.718 Arondar creates Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:23.250 Arondar begins to cast Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:26.171 Arondar creates Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:26.375 Arondar begins to cast Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:29.484 Arondar creates Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:29.968 Arondar begins to cast Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:31.390 Finady begins to cast Conjure Water.
10/4 17:39:33.015 Arondar creates Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:33.296 Arondar begins to cast Major Mana Potion.
10/4 17:39:33.500 Gwylonna checks her mail
Now.. I was wondering why casting is in Chat & not Combat... and same with creation. In fact, when I do the same with my add-on, I get a similar result (just nothing from general/trade) -- using just 4 channels to log: CHAT_MSG_EMOTE, CHAT_MSG_TEXT_EMOTE, CHAT_MSG_GUILD, and CHAT_MSG_SAY.
Please, some blue check your code... this is not really logging if +you're+ skipping (or mis-labelling) chat channels.
