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

That looks pretty dandy Seerah. I'll be posting my one up at some point but so far I think the few that are around are different enough to give people alternatives to use.

Looks pretty nice. And seem to work all nicely as well.

One question though, why is the Objectives-text and the collapse-button still visible when I'm not tracking anything? Default behaviour is that it disappears. Looks a bit silly to have it there when it's all empty.

Because I reparented them to the container frame so that when you collapsed the tracker, you could have it go to as small a size as possible without them hiding from you and you not being able to expand it again.

Seerah, you rock.

I'm not able to check at the moment (in the middle of a series of reformats due to some corrupted install media), but one thing that's always irritated me about the quest tracker is that it doesn't save its shown/collapsed state between logs and reloaduis. Would it be possible for your absolutely perfect-looking addon to do so?

I can add that into a future version. Be a dear and post this at my portal please, so that I remember?

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?)

Rofl, you too ?

I actually didn't see the re-parenting the Title and Button being the reason I couldn't shrink the window further rofl. *Notes to self to reference Seerah there*. Okay, note made in code at least

Mine's still a ways off as I have the nUI side to deal with but should be soon.

I'm having trouble logging in with the latest version enabled. The loading bar fills up like normal, but the game gets stuck at the loading screen. Doesn't freeze, as far as I can tell (alt+f4 was unusually responsive), just gets stuck at the loading screen.

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.

I haven't had any problems with the version. If you only have wfww enabled, can you log in?
