LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70200-1.0.0-2017-07-31
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!

Thanks to lunarwtr we're able to parse again, since I didn't have time

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>

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.

Ok, sorry didn't think about explaining that last night.

I can't recall exactly which quest but it did occur within Dragonblight. I'll keep an eye open to see if it happens again today.

But um, question.. what is a stack trace?

But there is one thing, i think the problem could be exclusive to the Deathknight starting area. I can not add TomTom waypoints with Ctrl+Right Click on the Worldmap of this zone either. So maybe its a TomTom + DK start area problem, i don't know for sure tho.
TomTom does not work in the Death Knight starting area. It's considered a battleground, and coordinates are not supported in battlegrounds by Astrolabe at the moment.

Sounds like you are getting an error you cannot see. To be clear, I always test the addon before I send it out, and that includes clicking all these types of links.
And now it works again - only thing I've done is to remove the previous version and put r277 back on again in pretty much the same way it was originally update. Tried re-creating the bug to no avail - which is really really annoying.

Sorry for the false report.

Well, I also found a problem with clicking on the names in the start/end details of a quest - clicking anywhere would result in nothing.

Going back to r275 removed the problem.

We've had a problem for a while now with the way hyperlinks in the SimpleHTML frame are rendered when inside a scrollframe. That's a likely candidate.

If I manually type in /way the waypoint will appear - just the linkage for the questlog to TomTom is broken.
