Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0
by: Seerah [More]
Note: This addon has been rewritten because of the changes to the quest tracker in WoD. Most everything has been re-implemented so far. (Button skinning has not been added yet, for example.)

This addon will add many improvements to the new quest tracker frame. The slash command is /wfww. You may also alt-click the tracker's collapse button to access the options.

Features:
  • allows the quest tracker to be moved wherever you please
  • quest tracker will collapse in whichever direction it's anchored to (ex. collapse down)
  • quest tracker remembers collapsed state
  • adjust the scale of the quest tracker
  • adjust the font, font size, font flag (outline, etc.), or remove shadow
  • adjust the spacing between lines
  • give the quest tracker a background and/or border (border can be class-colored)
  • optional support for rActionButtonStyler to skin quest item buttons
  • adds a tooltip for quests to display their objective text
  • allows you to minimize/maximize (toggle) the tracker via keybind
  • option to automatically collapse the tracker when entering an instance or during pet battles
  • shortcuts added to the collapse button (toggle Quest Log, Achievement Frame, addon's options)
  • global or character specific profiles


History:
With the new quest tracker losing its ability to be moved freely, I set about adding support for it back into my minimap addon, PocketPlot. But it just wasn't as simple anymore with the way it was coded. So, I set out to create a standalone addon (or at least a module for PocketPlot). Originally named Movable WatchFrame, I started adding other features to the addon. Then I had to change its name, because it did much more than just moved the tracker. Thanks to Recompense for suggesting "Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?"


Looking for more?
These are other addons to enhance your questing experience which are tried and tested with WFWW. If you know of any more, let me know via PM and I can add them to this list.
  • Quelevel: Adds quest levels to the tracker, quest log, and gossip frames
  • Jobs'a'goodn: Plays sounds upon completion of quests and their objectives
  • QuestRouterLite: Adds the game's quest POIs to the minimap and works with TomTom to create waypoints for them automagically
  • TomTom: Allows you to set waypoints to destinations including a new feature to automatically show the way for quests
  • LightHeaded: Shows comments from the Wowhead website's quest database in a window attached to your quest log frame.



Known Issue:
If you alter the font size too much, you may have to reload your UI in order to have the quest tracker redrawn. Some text may also overlap if it flows onto a second line. In this case, consider adjusting the whole frame's scale instead.
v.2.0
- rewritten for WoD
- most features have been re-implemented
- please file a bug report at my portal if you find any issues

v.1.9
- updated TOC for 5.2
- updated libraries

v.1.8.1
- should always be able to collapse/expand the watch frame now, even when the default UI doesn't think so
- will no longer show you as tracking 1 objective when really tracking nothing

v.1.8
- updated TOC for 5.1
- option to collapse watch frame during pet battles

v.1.7.4
- updated TOC for MoP
- updated libs
- removed "Monochrome" font flag because it crashes the client currently
- changed "Thick Outline" to "Monochrome Outline"

v.1.7.1
- updated libs
- updated TOC number
- tweaked options layout to fit larger window

v.1.7
- new: option to color border by class
- changed: border alpha now has it's own option (instead of being set with border color)

v.1.6
- updated TOC to 40100
- updated libs
- added option to automagically collapse tracker when entering an instance

v.1.5.4

- new options to change line spacing (thanks, seebs)
- random bug fixes and code cleanup for 3.3.3 and above changes

v.1.3.1
- fixed bug when mousing over achievements. Now you'll see the tooltip for the achievement instead!

v.1.3
- added tooltip for quests in the tracker, displaying their objective text
- added support for nUI (to keep it from hogging the watch frame) - thanks, Xrystal! (I did not add nUI to the OptionalDeps line in the .toc, figuring that since WFWW starts with a W, it would load close to the end. PLEASE let me know if I need to fix anything!)
- added option to remove the font shadow
- organized options a bit better

v.1.2
- added option to hide the watch frame when no quests or achievements are being tracked

v. 1.1.1

- initial release

It should work with nUI, but if you mean make it fit into the info panel, then no. Here: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...atchFrame.html

Is it skinner? Or some other great addon I missed?

For future reference, feature requests and bug reports belong at my portal (there are links for each underneath the "Download" button).

This has been implemented, however, and will be uploaded sometime today.


@GummiBen: Yes, that is my current interface, and it is not available for download.

Just tested it now, and I can. I'll try to figure out what the conflicting addon(s) are.

Yeah, I think you guys have cheated though (since you're reparenting to a new frame and setting a fixed height). :P

Then again, I've kinda cheated by just ignoring the second point and letting it pretend to size itself arbitrarily. Codemonkey slop FTW. I'll get around to fixing it eventually I suppose.

What I do like about Seerah's watcher is the simple yet nice customization features (font, bg, etc). The only thing I don't like (and this is admittedly a bit OCD) is that the frame is just a wee bit small width-wise...only a couple pixels between the buttons and the border.

That said it's (as I predicted) a much more elegant addon than aTRACKt, and I put a link on the aTRACKt page linking to this one so that those who want more know where to find it.

Seerah I added a bug report for you (I always feel terrible doing that ) and before I overload you with feature requests can I just ask, are you planning on making this a robust quest mod (on the level of the old nQuestLog), or are you planning to keep this a super simple one? (ie would feature requests such as objective announcing or sounds be unwelcome?)
