by: Jzar, twobits
QuestIon (pronounced Quest - I - On) is a very customizable and configurable window for tracking quests and objectives.

Note: Until and unless I can figure out how to give the new adopter access to QIO on WoWInterface, it will be more regularly updated and maintained on Curse. See here.

Recent Changes:

1.8.1
-------
* fix display of some dailies
* stop hooking GetQuestLogTitle

Features:

- Each quest can be configured individually
- Sort quests by level, location, or by title
- Filter quests by current location and/or level
- Collapsable location headers
- Auto-Fade and Auto-Minimize window options
- Auto-Show quests on objective pickup
- Configurable font sizes
- Configurable defaults for new quests
- Global commands to change an option on all quests
- Set which corner the window grows/expands from
- Quest titles are displayed with the quest level and quest difficulty color

I downloaded QuestIon, but it says "Incompatible".

I am assuming this is because it has a dependency that I don't currently have installed?

Incompatability Issues

Hmmm... I could SWEAR when I updated the file, I actually uploaded the new version too. Apparently, that's not the case. It's not a dependency issue, it's the build number I had in the TOC file. Which I don't understand, because even the old build number I had doesn't show as incompatible with my WoW client... Oh well, I've uploaded the REAL 1.7.2 now, try it again, please.

Works like a charm, thanks a lot.

Looks like a nice add-on, I kept looking for something similar to what I had about a year ago.

bugs, bugs, bugs

I like this mod, but everytime I start up WOW, this mod wants to put its self anywhere it wants. When you lock it down, it moves to the corners, you should beable to lock it down anywhere you want on the screen. Most corners already have something in them, by default.

Re: bugs, bugs, bugs

Yup. It was like that when I inherited this mod from Jefftyjeff. I'm still working on finishing out some feature requests for 1.7.3, and I'll probably try to isolate and lock down the issue with it never remembering where you stuck it for 1.7.4. Stay posted, and watch for updates!

This mod has a lot of good stuff going on! It's my new favorite quest mod!

Feature request: (in your own time, of course)

Would you consider adding Fubar support and/or a minimap button? I'd like to be able to hide everything including the Question title bar on some occasions. The Fubar button or map button gives it a one click for that.

thanks for a great mod!

Fubar / Titan / Minimap Extensions

I will certainly add those to the list. I'll probably get to them in v1.7.5 (i.e., when the semester ends, if homework keeps going the way it has been...).

On a side note, I've got mine with Auto-minimize and Auto-fadeout enabled, and the fade-out alpha set to 0. This means that you choose the corner to lock to, you stick it so that the window doesn't expand on top of too much stuff. Then when you mouse-over just that little tiny title bar, it come back from being invisible, and expands to show you the whole log. Because of that, I haven't really felt a need to include options for hiding the whole shebang. It already hides itself quite effectively.

I'm getting the same thing as well - each and every time I load up.

Awesome addon! I used to use Fubar_Quests but it had some issues. Yours is great...clean...very easy to use.

The only thing I wish it did was give you a sound when you finished PART of the quest...i.e. if you have to collect 20 thingys and 15 qumquats it would beep or something when you got the 15 qumquats collected...and then when the 20 thingys are done it would do another sound so you know the whole quest is done.

Maybe it does this already but I couldn't figure it out.

Keep it up.

Thanks!

Can't get the quests to show

So I just downloaded this mod and I must be a total noob but I can't get the quests to show up in the QuestIon display box...It just says "No Quests Shown" I tried to go and turn them on under show/hide quests and it checks them but they still don't show...then i went into global commands to Display: Show Quests and that didnt do anything.. ..I know the mod is working because it shows the level of the quests in my log I just cant get them to appear in the Quest-I-on box...Am I a total noob or what?

PS I am running on a Mac if that has anything to do with it....it usually does

Quests not showing up

rotflol I'm not aware of any issues with Question that are affected by the client's operating system. My first best guess is the filtering. I changed the defaults when I adopted this mod, so that it always shows only quests that are not red and not gray for you, and that are within your current Zone. Try unchecking one or both of those options in the Sorting / Filtering menu. If it still doesn't show any quests, give me another ding.

Hey Jzar, first of all, thanks for maintaining this mod. It's one of my favorite.

Right now, QuestIon is having compatibility issues with other Quest related addons, in particular TourGuide and QuestAnnouncer. The reason for this is that QuestIon replace GetQuestLogTitle() with its own version and that affect every other addons that call the same fonction. It leads to cosmetic error (Quest Announcer display the [level] twice in chat) to more drastic ones (TourGuide need the quest titles to be intact so that it can parse and recognize them).

I would suggest renaming the QuestIon's GetQuestLogTitle() to QuestIon_GetQuestLogTitle() and to have all QuestIon functions call that. I did it with on my local copy with a simple search and replace. Took me 5 minutes and everything works fine afterward.

While I was looking at QuestIon version of GetQuestLogTitle(), I found a little bug. Line 4360 is
Code:
if (questTag and QuestIon_MasterOptionPlayer["enhancedLevelTag"]) then
but should be
Code:
if ((questTag or isDaily) and QuestIon_MasterOptionPlayer["enhancedLevelTag"]) then
otherwise, the # for the daily quests is not displayed most of the time since most dailies are neither Group, Elite, Dungeon, Raid or PvP quests.

Thanks again for taking care of this little gem of an addon.

About the daily quests: It's fixed in my version. I thought that was also in the last release I uploaded. I'm very chagrined to find that that's not the case. My next release will certainly see that fixed. (Not quite the same patch you suggested, but you'll see)

As for modifying the GetQuestLogTitle(), here's the story: When I picked this mod up from Jefftyjeff, it worked as you suggest it should. QI had its own name function and didn't hook the official function. However, that meant that with CT_Core installed, it displayed dual levels, just as you're experiencing. So I got rid of CT, but then the levels didn't show up in the quest log anymore. Then I basically learned how to hook from CT's code (that was my first foray into LUA and wow addons), and made it so I didn't need CT at all anymore.

I however, have also had compatability problems with it, when I finally got QuestGuru. The author there was very cooperative and made his code do a search compare instead of a straight compare, and it worked great. But I'm getting this more and more, and I think I'll add an option to the next version for a local or global replace of the name strings. Meaning, when it hooks the function, do a test for whether the modification should be done there or in a lcoal function only.

Thanks much for your interest in QI.
