LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70100-1.0.0-2016-10-26
by: Cladhaire [More]

The last date of comment parsing is now part of the addon's filename.

Includes over 166,198 comments for more than 15,560 quests


LightHeaded is a very simple addon that displays quest information and comments from http://www.wowhead.com in game, eliminating the need to Alt-Tab when you get stuck on quest. This addon was inspired by qcomments and wowhead_quests, which both serve a similar purpose. Data is only loaded when you first request it, so you can be sure you're not using more memory than you need to.

I HIGHLY suggest using this addon with TomTom, another one of my addons (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...32-TomTom.html ). This allows you to simply click any coordinate in LightHeaded to add it to your map as a waypoint.

The following slash commands are valid:
  • /lh attach - Attaches the frame to the quest log
  • /lh detach - Detaches the frame, allows you to resize and move it
  • /lh sound - Toggles the open/close sound
  • /lh page - Toggles showing all comments on one page, or with multiple pages
  • /lh bgalpha <0.0-1.0> - Changes the alpha of the LH window background textures, so you can see the world.
  • /lh debug - Enables or disabled debug messages when loading quest databases
  • /lh config - Opens the LightHeaded configuration window
  • /lh autodetails - Toggle automatic opening of the Lightheaded window when clicking a quest in the objective tracker

LightHeaded now includes the English descriptions and introductory text for most of the quests in the game. This is disabled by default, but can be enabled for those players that are not playing in their native locale.

LightHeaded supports sending coordinates to TomTom, MapNotes, Cartographer2 and Cartographer3.

IMPORTANT: Addon authors that wish to use this API and data should
include the wowhead logo in the frame that displays this information.
They are kind enough to let me continue parsing their database, and we
owe them at least that much. Thank you.

Thanks for using my addons!

Update for new parsing script

Thanks to lunarwtr we're able to parse again, since I didn't have time
to fix the previous parser. This required some changes to the addon, but
this should get things back up and working.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>
Date: Sat Jan 31 15:27:56 2015 +0100

Fix LH waypoint set integration

- We now are able to properly reverse WowHead mapFileIds to the in-game
areaIds, so waypoints should be set in the correct zone.
- We don't know how to set a waypoint in an instanced zone, so we just
put those in the current zone
- Integration with MapNotes, Cartographer and friends always set in the
current zone.

Nothing new, nothing different.
Although, that does explain why my Clique wasn't working properly...

Out of curiosity.. disable DHUD.. It conflicts with Clique in weird ways, maybe with LightHeaded too?

No, I can't.. that's not how addons work. If you don't need new comments, then there is no need to update. That being said, it was updated within the last week. What comments are you finding that are on wowhead that aren't on LightHeaded.

Its over 7000 pages to parse, not to mention the other stuff that goes into it. If you have specific examples, please make them known.

I've just run into this problem to, (spam clicking does work BTW) what ther add ons do you use, maybe we can see if theres something in comon

I had a problem getting lightheaded to work this morning, after some messing around with various mods it was uberquest preventing lightheaded from loading. I deleted uberquest and all is well. They both worked fine together before I updated, but uberquest really isnt needed with lightheaded and doublewide

Hope that little bit helps =)
I don't use it.. please let me know if you get any more info :P

I've been having this issue _intermittently_.. i.e. sometimes it takes a few clicks to make it work.. Try spam clicking, and let me know if that works for you. I'm going to look into it either way, so if you do find an addon that causes it, let me know.

Also, I personally like to use this mod when I'm absolutely stuck and save the trouble of Alt-Tabbing out to find it. In a nutshell, I don't like it popping up every time. Is there an option to disable the auto-show of the frame? If not, could one be added?
I do not provide compatibility with other addons. Paging has nothing to do with whether the window is detached or not. That being said, I'll add a close button to the detached frame in the next version.
