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.

cant click on coordinate anymore

I used lightheaded for some time now with tomtom and i love it but these past days i cant seem to click on the coordinate anymore or anything in blue. I tried del LH and then loading wow then reinstall LH and that would work but only until i would until i logged off wow and once i logged back on, it again wouldnt let me click on the coordinates, BUT it would work fine on another toon i have so i find this a bit strange. I dont have many addon just LH, tomtom, and UI. Ill try and disable the UI and see if that helps but the servers are down now.
I also tried to read the older post see if anyone had this prob too but to many post to go threw them all. Any suggestions?

There are no known issues with this, other than the random spotty issues that the Blizzard widgets have where they're particular about where they are clicked. You should always disable all other addons to rule out any conflicts.

You would need to change the code.

They are both there. There is an issue with your web browser, or the connection between your client and the server. I assure you the files are not corrupt.

That depends on whether those quests are available on the live wowhead site, and if the page format hasnb't changed much. I'll look into it.

Hi,

Thank you much for the response!

EDIT: I just wanted to point you to a Wowhead WOTLK (wow 3.0) quest to provide as an example. Also note the site's url is a bit different than the live server (wow 2.4) url. Looks like you simply replace www in the url with wotlk. Not saying it's that easy for your mod to adapt, of course not, just as a reference for you.

Actually, I've had this issue for awhile, even when disabling every addon except Lightheaded, Doublewide, and TomTom. The only 'fix' I've ever known is to reload the ui and the arrow pops up in main screen and on the minimap where they should be *shrug*.

Troubleshooting Results:
As disabling all addons except the aforesaid 3 still results in no waypoint arrows AND the fact that with all my usual addons running I can get the arrows to show with a simple reloadui, disabling/changing nothing...shows that there is no addon conflict possible.

Perhaps this could stand to be fixed

You are describing something entirely different, so you'll need to start from scratch. I have absolutely NO reported issues with the minimap or world map icons. I don't understand what you're saying.

What was being reported was an issue CLICKING on the links in LightHeaded. Again, this is NOT a bug I can fix.. but a nuance with Blizzard's widget systems in various scales. I've experienced it myself, and there's little to nothing that I can do about it.

No, I can't click on coordinates or anything in blue until I reload the ui. Nothing happens, no arrows, no nothing. Sorry for the misunderstanding, I thought it was obvious =P

Can you reload the page when this happens, i.e. /lh page to fix it instead of a reload? This is actually an issue as I said that I'm aware of, but as far as I can tell I have no way to "Fix" it.

I think I am getting the same issue now, If I have TomTom and LH loaded I can click and get the TomTom arrow but not the LH arrow. With TomTom removed it appears as though when you click on the Coord links nothing happens. Re enabling TomTom places the arrows and MiniMap icons when clicking the link.

It seems to me the LH Waypoint function got suppressed somehow. I dont see a command line to re enable the arrows or anything.

I downloaded the latest versions of both and deleted out the saved variable files, but still seems to have the same issue regardless.

Any suggestions on what to try?
