I have exactly the same problem. I haven't tested if it actually records new books yet, but I assume it does. And if it does, that means that we will have a new and old database that needs merging if this problem persists for a significant time :x .

If I knew what the problem was I'd be glad to write a converter or something?

Problem with Datafile

I have a datafile for Bookworm with books, notes, and letters that I have collected over the last 2 years playing WoW. This new version of Bookworm doesn't seem to like the old file - I am continually getting "..\SavedVariables\Bookworm.lua:XX: unfinished line near 'Quoted text'...(where XX is a random page number)" errors, and then the datafile is wiped (I have to reinstall from backup again). I have tried deleting offending books from within the datafile, but the error never advances through the file as I progress.

Is there any way to save the old datafile - clean it up or fix the formatting for the new version?

Thank you for fixing bookworm :-)

you are soooo friggen awesome, thank you for picking this up and making it work again, this is by far the best addon ever for recording books. there were others that tried to fill the void, when this stoped working but now if this works with the next patch I will be very very happy :-)


as always keep up the great work, and I hope this stays around for as long as WOW exists.

Another great mod, Iriel, thanks

One thing about this addon though, is that when you open a mobile document, like an Arcanum or one of the Quest letters, you know from, say the magistrate in Redridge asking for help from Westfall, Darkshire or whatever.. the location is updated in Bookworm. It doesn't bother me much, it's just a niggle.

Fixed scrolling issues!

Many apologies that it took me so long, but the scrollbar issues are fixed in the 1.11 build. (It also does font swapping in a cleaner way internally, not that you'll notice)

Just a note that the absence of a 1.10 update isn't a sign i've forgotten about Bookworm, just that it needs more work than I have time to do tonight.

This is a great idea. There are some interesting books in the game world, coming from the perspective of a new player.
