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

The name of the button is WatchFrameCollapseExpandButton. It may be as easy as calling :SetTexture on it (though the texture changes depending on collapse-state, so you may need to do it each time it's clicked). Or you can manually replace the texture in your Interface folder.

Ah, I see. It has multiple textures (normal, pushed, highlight, disabled). You'll have to change all of those via Lua or replace the textures.

If you don't find a solution, there's still PocketPlot.

I was also wondering if the Armor Guy is moved with your quest tracker or not? Just kinda wondering.
A reason for the collapse button not moving is that you have a different addon trying to control the placement of the tracker. Thus, it has too many :SetPoint() calls and is getting confused. If you disable all addons but WFWW, you'll see that it works fine by itself.

As for the durability man, no. That is out of scope of this addon's purposes (which is just to skin/move the quest tracker). There are many addons that you can use to move it or replace it, or my PocketPlot minimap addon has a mover for that element.
TY i'll figure it out
FYI my conflict is between Chinchilla and WFWW. Even with the Quest Tracker Module off Chinchilla seems to not play nice with WFWW, but Chinchilla doesn't let me move things around.

I'll share if I find a solution for this!

WFWW does not touch that in any regard. It may be a Blizzard bug. To test, disable WFWW (everything, really) and see if the behavior repeats itself.

Since today's patch I noticed a... funny behaviour, subtle enough that I initially mistook it for a new feature of the default quest tracker or some such.

Long story short, whenever I click on a quest in the tracker and the quest tap opens, the flavor text will show as slowly fading. The first few words will show, then characters will grow more and mroe transparent until the text vanishes completely.

Opening the quest tab independently and browsing through it manually will not produce this "error" and text will be shown as usual. Apart from this most peculiar behavious, no feature appears broken nor any error is firing.

Thought fair to warn you about it, just in case it happened to anyone else out there

Thanks for your quick respond. The problem must be with dMinimap then.
You don't happen to know how to turn the questtrackermoving from dMinimap of? I know it has to be done in the LUA coding and I tried a few things but they didnt work.
Thanks

Edit: Nevermind. Found it! And again: thanks
