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.

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.

It overlaps!

It might have been posted before, but I was too lazy to go through all the comments. Forgive me!
Anyway, I'm using LightHeaded together with DoubleWide. The problem is, when clicking that nifty button that shoots LightHeaded out of the questlog, the LH frame will overlap the action bar buttons in the action bars on the right side of the screen. I know I can detach the LH frame, but I would rather not. Any other solution maybe?

Comments are sorted by rating which should give you the most applicable comments first, if not you can always help rate the comments to improve the accuracy of the ratings. I can look into how much more it would take to provide sorting by date, but that will mean a certain hit at runtime (which may be worth it, I suppose).

Update comments

I was wondering if you were planning to release an updated comments soon as the last release has comments over a month old now.

Great addon!

*edit* cheers

For those of you having issues with Doublewide, I've just verified that it works just fine with the current client. Go back to the addon selection screen and make sure you have "Load out of date addons" checked. I suspect Iriel will update the .toc version at some point, but nothing has changed that would make this addon stop working.

Something else to try

I had a similar problem and played Musical Add-Ons until I fixed it by disabling/removing the QuestLog Level Patch and Party Quests add-ons. Both were pretty much made obsolete by LightHeaded and built-in interface upgrades anyway.

You could try....

In the past I used Bayi's Extended Questlog with Lightheaded...

http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...-questlog.aspx

That has the doublewide style questlog.

LightHeaded is a completely separate addon that does something unrelated to LightHeaded. I have no plans in any sort of future to add that sort of functionality into LightHeaded. Not exercising restraint in that regard would just end up adding lots of bloat to a reasonable simple addon.

Doublewide not working

Cindy, I have the same problem. For some reason i can't decipher; the doublewide frame is not working. I did a reinstall of ALL UI mods, step by step login check for each of them independently, and the sidebar isn't working. I will delete all my WTF files next, but was wondering if you or anyone else has had any luck getting the doublewide frame to work yet?

Yes, currently they are sorted by rating but not threaded.

Just disable it in the options panel under Coordinate Block.
