A addon guide to leveling all your professions from 1-450. (Beta Test at this time)

(NEW) Guide Frame appears to work now with my fixes. The Close button is also now showing.
* (UPDATE: As of version 1.0k, in order to see the guide for your profession please open the profession first then open professional and click the proper button to show the guide for your current skill level!)
Also I would like anyone who is an artist to submit images for a logo for professional and a minimap button design! Credit will be given to those who submit the works.

You can open/close with /pro or /professional or click the NEW minimap Button!


Additions for the future: a checklist of all items needed to craft from 1-450. Links inside guides like in chat window.

Bugs: Hyperlinks appear not to work, but should be accurate. Guide format issues (just me taking the LONG time to format a cleaner text)

Please report all bugs to my ticket system here: http://wow.curseforge.com/projects/p...create-ticket/
This way I can manage any error reports better.
In fact if you can answer step 1 in the defect ticket, it can solve 90% of all problems.

(NEW)f.a.q. located here: http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.php?id=562&a=faq

Any devs who know how to do future enhancements please contact me.

v.1.0i beta test Updated to a new engine for guides to match current skill in profession. Alchemy is the only guide at this time in the new format. Added a minimap icon below clock that is ? and will open Professional with out /pro or /professional (but these commands still work). Updated guide info screen to no longer use background strata.

v.1.0h beta test A "patch file" was given to me to fix the scrollframe text to stay in the frame by llothos on wowinterface. I fixed some minor typos, and fixed some functions. A First aid button and lib have been added.

v.1.0g beta test updated frame.lua for an error of " ..\AddOns\Professional\Frame.lua line 126: '<eof>' expected near 'end' ". I don't know if I fixed it or not. If you still get the error, contact me as I'm not getting the error. This is even more true if your locale is not English!

v.1.0f beta test updated frame.lua for locale support. In Lib folder all the lua files have been updated for locale support. Translations of buttons and guides required. So for now anything but English won't show. If you wish you may downgrade to v.1.0e during the process of translation.

v.1.0e beta test updated frame.lua in preparation for locale support. Locale support is not active at this time, until I can't work out any bugs. Updated alchemy, blacksmithing and enchanting guides for hyperlinks. Blacksmithing and enchanting items needed are prepped for checklist frame. Checklist is still in process of being developed. Any translations of the guides MUST contain the hyperlinks and not alter the original system in order to be official to Professional. I will include a readme for the guides for translations in the near future. Updated Lib/About.lua

v.1.0d beta test changed frame.xml to allow a more dynamic textstring scroll within a framescroll. Tested all guides for length not getting cutoff and appears to work.

v.1.0c beta test with improved Alchemy guide including partial hyperlinks (like in the chat channels). Addition of Cooking as per request. I don't have a guide written for it yet, so if anyone wishes to contribute a guide to speed up the process, please do. ScrollingFrame text does not scroll. (please help on this if you know the solution. preferably with out fuaxscrollframe. Mine is based from TradeTrax help window, which does not use such a method that I'm aware of.)

v.1.0b beta test with full data. known bug is scrolling does not seem to work.

v.1.0a alpha test to see if most functions work

Professional re-dux

I'm re-working the code to be Cata ready. Guide formats might change, we shall see. This is not dead, just taking a while since I suck at programming. And now with my new wicked sweet hardware I might be able to do things again ^.^ !

Stay tuned for updates when they become available.

errors in v.1.0j and v.1.0j.1

OK, I fixed the blacksmithing error. (mainly because of a minor typo). However I too get no guides and the close button for the main window. I have checked for bugs and I get no bug reports. I tried to modify the code and for whatever reason the guides will not show. In the mean time I will consider version 1.0j broken and that you should either use 1.0i or 1.0h for the time being.

Posted on 2 of my toons, out of 7... and neither of them has anything to do with Blacksmithing. One has no professions at all, the other has Tailoring/Skinning, both maxed.
Hmmm... I will have to look into that.

Adding that ability alone will make this the hottest profession addon out there due to the fact that some people want to see ahead of time exactly what it will take to level a profession before they actually make the decision to get that profession. Not having to drop the game to taskbar and open up your browser is always a plus.
I will consider this, however since I have one bug I have not been able to fix and had to do a work around, that method is impossible to do at the moment. It was like that in the beginning though, when everything would display. For now it will check if you have the profession and get it's level and display the correct guide for that level range.

I can however try to add some text about how difficult it can be if they do not have the profession. This is the best i can do atm.

Yes each guide would need to be reformatted into level groups and the frame.lua has the engine with easy reading programming (because then I won't even know what I'm doing then lol) However in the new version most of this work is now complete. (many days and nights slaving away at this) And I had to re-name certain functions and items to fix an open error for some users.

How do fix this please.

Thank you for an awesome addon.
I this time I can't figure out why everything doesn't display properly in the old engine. The guide window has an "infinite" scroll based on how long my fontstring is. What you can do is emulate what I did for the Alchemy guide an break up the guides by certain levels to avoid the cutoff.

I hope that helps you.
