This is still working in 3.0.2, however when I create a category, all of a sudden nothing is browseable. I can open /bw browse and select read/unread/all/uncategorized, but am not able to click into any books. As soon as I delete the categories I created, it's fine again.

3.0.2 Update?

While Bookworm (thankfully) still works with the 3.0.2 patch, will there be an update to make it fully compatible and fix the couple issues that may have arisen (such as the last comment about categories)?

I've been looking for a replacement for a mod called Librarian for a while (hasn't been updated in over a year), and I'm curious if this is the mod I'm looking for. I like the idea that Bookworm notes where you've seen certain books, but I'm wondering if it also "captures" the book, like Librarian did, so that I can look up and read certain books while say in flight between flight points for a while. Thanks.

Never mind, I downloaded it and tried it out and it does in fact do what I'm looking for.

A request though, is it possible to make it so that you don't have to type in "/bookworm browse" each time you want to look at something you've grabbed in the past? A command that opens up a GUI that allows you to go forward through grabbed books, and then back to the main index when you want to read something else, instead of having to close out what you've just read and and the type the browse command again. It get's a little monotonous.

Also, while working on the "Well Read" achievement, I had to go into Scholomance for three books, and when ever I opened a book, even though it was saved to the mod, it would give a "Bookworm: Unable to obtain Location" error.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

You should be able to click on the book icon in the top left corner to go 'back' a step.

Bookworm <catid>

A super addon I wish I had discovered earlier. I seem unabe to create more than one catagory. No matter what alpha numeric combination i use.. I always get invalid ' < catid > '. Is this a bug or is there a trick to creating additional catagories, or could it be that I have gone braindead..
Pls Help with maybe an example of a couple that would work.

no cats

Yep, categories are broken. When created, nothing is browsable until they are removed :/

That's too bad.....still a great addon. Hopefully, Iriel will fix it up for us.

For some reason, the books i got out of the Scarlet Monastery : Library instance, along with other books don't allow me to click on the number next to them. No errors, but I can't read them.

Hah! Nevermind, logged out then in and it works. Great addon.

I'm not sure if i'm being incredibly dense or lucky or have something wrong with my environment, but I'm not sure how to reproduce this issue. I created some categories and things seemed to behave.

Could you give me the specific commands you ran and a click-by-click description of the problem, and i'll get it resolved (somehow)

Well, i'm sure that i'm creating cats the same way anyone else does - how many ways to do that exist?

/bw addcat X1 catname

This started after the WOLK patch. Any books already in cats are unbrowsable (except via /bw all), and one can't add (or change for old books) new books to any cats (old cats or newly created). I am using the ruRU client, if that matters.

PS: also tried resetting the settings by removing the WTF files: everything works until one create a category - nothing can be added to it.

Nevermind, i'm a noob I went into the settings and manually told bookworm to store, and my problem was fixed.

I was wondering if this addon can capture letters written by other players or NPC's like father winter ETC? I may just be missing it but if not in the option now, I would love you to consider it a suggestion.

Love this addon
