    Hey there,

    I was wondering if there was a Bukkit method to remove console messages sent my the original Minecraft Server. (Eg: opping player44)
    It would then not appear in the console or in the log.

    Please ask any question because it sounded a bit vague to myself.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Or to somehow read and catch (stop) the output.

    Why you need it? I don't know why any plugin must hide log information from admins... if it's not a trojan...

    Haha, no Trojan, it's for my server's use. I'll be sending logged items to a program and I need to remove certain logged things so that's why I was asking. Any suggestions?
  4. Hm. This is something I threw up and it is not complete, but that should work.

    Create a new class or make this a nested class and use this:

    1. public class MyFilter implements Filter {
    2. @Override
    3. public void isLoggable(LogRecord record) {
    4. String message = record.getMessage();
    5. if (message.contains(<certainStringsYouDoNotWant>)) {
    6. return false;
    7. }
    8. return true;
    9. }
    10. }

    Make a plugin and put this in your onEnable():

    1. public void onEnable() {
    2. Bukkit.getLogger().setFilter(new MyFilter());
    3. }

    You can also play around with the LogRecord object, just look at its JavaDoc.

    You, are a legend! Thank-you so much!
  6. It doesn't work when plugins use System.out.println() though.
