Fortress  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.1.5
by: Borlox [More]

Fortress is a display addon for LDB data feeds. It shows each plugin as a block, which is freely movable and can stick to other blocks. Blocks can be unstuck by holding the ctrl-key while dragging them.

Commands:
Use /fortress or /ft to open the configuration (also accessible via Main Menu -> Interface -> Addons -> Fortress).

Configuration:
The configuration has two parts: The master settings and the individual plugin settings. At first each option is controlled by the master settings and therefore it has the same effect for each plugin. Once you change something individually for one plugin, this setting is no longer controlled by the master mode (for this plugin).
You can select the mode for each option at the "Select master" tab in each plugin's config screen.

Bug Reports:
To report a bug, please open a ticket here.

The naming sheeme is a bit confusing. I think it's due to the creation of LDB right after StatBlocks, so Funkydude didn't want to get a new name.
LOL, thanks for the clarification. I'll find my equivalent addons in the Statblock format. I live the way fortress is set up.

It was good of Fred to check in with both ends of the report like that, I appreciate it. The error was totally my fault, though. I hadn't counted on LibTourist returning a string instead of a table if the player wasn't in an instance, or a battleground, or an arena. I used IsInInstance() to perform the check, when really I should've just used if type(zones_table) == "table" then -- stuff -- end around each block of code that used that table.

The error was totally my fault though, so it's only right that I should own up to it.

On mouse over of a mod using Fortress, not sure if it is yours....so I'll post error over to Curse with the mod in question.

Thank you for Fortress! It is working great for what I needed. I wsa getting frustrated with StatBlockCore.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this but holding down control to detach blocks is very handy! Thanks!

No, that screen is from the live realms.

Edit: I installed The Traveller's Reference from Curse. It's stuck in the middle of the screen..I looked through the options,couldn't find an option. The tooltip is so big that it covers it in the middle of the screen. I left a message over there asking too.

Edit 2: Was able to use another mod to glue it, move it
Sometimes large tooltips cover their block, so one could not drag it. I'm already thinking about a method to stop this.

To unstick two blocks hold the CTRL key while dragging one of them.
