QuestMover  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.3b
by: Mordread [More]
With the release of patch 3.3, Blizzard removed the ability to move/resize the quest/objectives tracker.

QuestMover is a small addon that attempts to restore the old functionality without adding a lot of extra bloat. It detaches the quest tracker from the minimap and allows you to move and resize it (vertically).

v1.3b Update:
Added resizing grips on the bottom right and left corners. You can only resize the tracker vertically at this time. If you'd like to make it wider, go into WoW's options under Objectives and check Wider Objectives Tracker.

Shift-clicking the collapse/expand button opens the Achievement frame. Right-clicking opens the Quest Log.

There may be some bugs in this release. If you have any errors please report them in the comments section and I'll try to work on it when I can.
v1.1: Incorporated suggestions from the comments. Now draggable --(thanks to Redwood Elf). Resize by editing QuestMover.lua and changing WatchFrame:SetScale(1.0) --(thanks to Vranx)

No longer works in 4.0.1?

Seems that QuestMover no longer works in 4.0.1 and later? Did Blizzard change the frame ID of the quest frame to allow for the new way of getting quests "in the field"?

Hi, i love this addon, but a little problem is there. When no quests will show, then you can't click anyone where the quest tracker will be.

Sorry for my bad english.

Manually Locking the Tracker

There's a trick you can do to manually lock the tracker in place once you get it where you want it. (I'm using the non-optional version right now) Once you get the tracker where you want it, open up QuestMover.lua in the interface folder and comment out lines 104-110 by adding 2 hypens (-) at the beginning of each line.
This:
Code:
WatchFrame:SetScript("OnMouseDown", function()
   WatchFrame:StartMoving()
       WatchFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\Tooltips\\UI-Tooltip-Background",
    	edgeFile = "Interface\\Tooltips\\UI-Tooltip-Border", edgeSize = 16,
		insets = {left=0, right=0, top=0, bottom=0}, tile = true, tileSize = 16})
    WatchFrame:SetBackdropColor(0.1, 0.1, 0.1, 0.2)
   end)
then becomes:
Code:
--WatchFrame:SetScript("OnMouseDown", function()
--   WatchFrame:StartMoving()
--       WatchFrame:SetBackdrop({bgFile = "Interface\\Tooltips\\UI-Tooltip-Background",
--    	edgeFile = "Interface\\Tooltips\\UI-Tooltip-Border", edgeSize = 16,
--		insets = {left=0, right=0, top=0, bottom=0}, tile = true, tileSize = 16})
--    WatchFrame:SetBackdropColor(0.1, 0.1, 0.1, 0.2)
--   end)
Once you do that, it will be locked in that position until you uncomment those lines and change the position, regardless of if you relog or exit or what have you.
Hope this helps someone out!

QuestMoverPoint["rp"],QuestMoverPoint["xof"],QuestMoverPoint["yof"])

end
WatchFrame:SetHeight(600) -- Edit this to change the height
WatchFrame:SetScale(.8) -- Edit this to scale it up or down
WatchFrame.ClearAllPoints = function() end
WatchFrame.SetPoint = function() end
WatchFrame.SetAllPoints = function() end
WatchFrame:SetMovable(1)
WatchFrame:EnableMouse()
WatchFrame:SetScript("OnMouseDown", function()
WatchFrame:StartMoving()
end)
WatchFrame:SetScript("OnMouseUp", function()
WatchFrame:StopMovingOrSizing()
local p,rt,rp,xof,yof = WatchFrame:GetPoint()
QuestMoverPoint = {["p"] = p,["rt"] = rt,["rp"] = rp,["xof"] = xof,["yof"] = yof}
end)


So, to move the frame in game, just click and drag on the word "Objectives" at the top - the addon stores the new location when you log out of the game, and will put it there when you log back on.
Ok I'm confused! What line(s) do I mod in the QuestMover.lua??

Thanks in advance for doing something Blizz should have done in the first place.
Uploaded a lockable version in the Optional Files section. Alt-clicking the collapse button will lock it but it's buggy, it resets to the default position when you reloadui or relog. Needs to be reworked when I have time to figure it out.

Cool addon

Hi,

it still would be nice to have a function with which one could move back up the moved window against unintentional.

Otherwise this is a cool addon, so I could clean out two more that I needed to move just for the little quest window.

thanks a LOT for this addon, blame on blizz to remove this functionality in the firrst place.
it would be absolutely perfect if you could make it so we can resize (and scale?) ingame. is there any chance you can do that?

I'm not seeing this problem on my end. Can you verify the problem exists with no other addons enabled? Maybe post a screenshot.

open QuestMover.lua and comment line 15 to 24 out after you've moved the frame to your liking:

WatchFrame:ClearAllPoints()
if QuestMoverPoint then
WatchFrame:SetPoint(QuestMoverPoint["p"],QuestMoverPoint["rt"],
QuestMoverPoint["rp"],QuestMoverPoint["xof"],QuestMoverPoint["yof"])
else
WatchFrame:SetPoint("TOPRIGHT", "UIParent", "TOPRIGHT", -15,-300)
local p,rt,rp,xof,yof = WatchFrame:GetPoint()
QuestMoverPoint = {["p"] = p,["rt"] = rt,["rp"] = rp,["xof"] = xof,["yof"] = yof}
end
WatchFrame:SetHeight(600) -- Edit this to change the height
WatchFrame:SetScale(1.0) -- Edit this to scale it up or down
WatchFrame.ClearAllPoints = function() end
WatchFrame.SetPoint = function() end
WatchFrame.SetAllPoints = function() end
--[[WatchFrame:SetMovable(1)
WatchFrame:EnableMouse()
WatchFrame:SetScript("OnMouseDown", function()
WatchFrame:StartMoving()
end)
WatchFrame:SetScript("OnMouseUp", function()
WatchFrame:StopMovingOrSizing()
local p,rt,rp,xof,yof = WatchFrame:GetPoint()
QuestMoverPoint = {["p"] = p,["rt"] = rt,["rp"] = rp,["xof"] = xof,["yof"] = yof}
end)]]
if you want to move it again, just delete --[[ and ]].

Okay, I see what has gone wrong here.

Create a folder in your Interface/AddOns folder called QuestMover. Extract the zip file into that folder and you should now see 2 files. QuestMover.toc and QuestMover.lua. And it should then appear in your addon list at your character selection screen the next time you log into the game. Remember to log all the way out to get your changes to have effect.

If you have already extracted into another folder just move the files into the QuestMover folder you created or already have.

when you just unzip it into your addon folder, you could be missing the folder "/Interface/AddOns/QuestMover". this is where QuestMover.lua and QuestMover.toc should be.
