Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.9
by: Seerah [More]
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.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
- updated libs

v.1.5.3
- watch frame now expands if you get an auto-quest popup when it's collapsed

v.1.5.2
- fixed expand/collapse button again - now it's not too high
- bumped TOC version cause I forgot to before

v.1.5.1
- raise strata of collapse button so that its usable even if header text overlaps it from a large font size

v.1.5
- added a keybind to toggle (min/max) the quest tracker. You can set it in the WFWW options

v.1.4
- support for wide quest tracker feature for 3.3.3
- support for rActionButtonStyler skins (well, sorta - it just looks to see if it's installed, and then uses the skin texture/color)
- 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
- fixed bug where your set height would not be reapplied when re-expanding the tracker

v. 1.1
- watch frame now remembers if it was collapsed before (saved per character)

v. 1.0
- initial release

Actually, the reason I wouldn't use rActionButtonStyler is because I can't get the same look with it as I can with ButtonFacade which is used in RealUI, and that's the UI I use.

Also, I haven't found another addon that does any of the other stuff that actually does it right either... I have a lot of free time on my hands and I have looked on every website I could think of, and did google searches.

Really nice addon, I like all that it does. But I have a question or request rather...

The little nodes (yellow ones that you click on and it brings up the main map to show you where the quest is generally completed at), don't fit with just any UI. I was wondering if you could add support for changing the color, maybe even add some support for semi-transparent support for UI's like RealUI, so it'll fit with it more.

Also, maybe add support for ButtonFacade, since most major UI overhauls use it?

And maybe create some skin options for the Arrows for TomTom so it can fit too? If not then, do you know of an addon that will do that for me?

See what I'm trying to do is, make everything fit with RealUI, which most authors of UI's never re-design the Questlog or add anything to help with it in anyway, so every time I use a full on UI experience, I have to do it myself, and I don't know how so I go about looking for addons that will.

Oh i know that, but moving it wasn't all i wanted. I love the minor options as well, like outlining the font. XD

Woot, I've figured it out! lol I actually had forgotten that Tuk has his own way to move the tracker (been out of the game for 6 months).

<3 Thanks!

I've fixed this up now. The default UI has the watch frame expand if you have it collapsed when an auto-quest popup appears. What you see in your screenshot is the watch frame attempting to do this, but the container frame still being collapsed (too small). Now, the container frame will open when you get a popup.

I've set the anchor to Top Right. Note that this on the screen edge. I noticed that whenever the Click to Complete Quest overlay pops up, it doesn't align accordingly. Only after I uncollapse and recollapse the tracker, then it will align properly.

Any ideas?

Are you sure? Disable all other addons and try again. It should work just fine.

1. I'll think about it. Why do you need to adjust the strata? (Also, if you would like me to remember this suggestion, please put it at my Portal.)

2. Interface Options > Objectives allows you to switch between two different widths.

Sorry, I guess I raised it too high in this change:
v.1.5.1
- raise strata of collapse button so that its usable even if header text overlaps it from a large font size

Thanks for the comments and glad you like it still.
