GuildBook
Version: 0.14-20003
by: JoshBorke [More]
WARNING: If upgrading from any version before 0.8-20003 there is the possibility to destroy data. Back up your saved variables if you don't want to lose data.
This is the first version of a mod written to provide an in-game knowledgebase for a guild. Currently it doesn't do any syncing but merely provides a flexible framework for storing information in game.

Now can do color! WOOHOO!
See the addon->GuildBook->Content help topic for more info.

Syncing: It does not synchronize yet, but it will. If you are in a guild you have the option to synchronize your information to everyone else.

Try it out.

Oh yea, ignore my crappy gimp skills. I hate drawing :P

Coming a long great - really enjoying learning to use this.

Now just need to get another guildie or two and then we can start synching when it gets implemented.

I did not test itbut it should work.

german translation

Code:
if( GetLocale() == "deDE" ) then
	if (not GuildBook) then GuildBook = {} end
	GuildBook.Buttons = {
		["GuildBookNew"] = {"neue Seite","Erstelle einen neuen Beitrag unter diesem hier."},
		["GuildBookDelete"] = {"L\195\182sche Seite","L\195\182scht diesen Beitrag permanent. Halte die Shift Taste gedr\195\188ckt um ihn ohne Best\195\164tigung zu l\195\182schen."},
		["GuildBookForwardButton"] = {"Weiter","Gehe eine Seite weiter."},
		["GuildBookUpButton"] = {"Hoch","Gehe eine Seite hoch."},
		["GuildBookBackButton"] = {"Zur\195\188ck","Gehe eine Seite zur\195\188ck."},
		["GuildBookClose"] = {"Schlie\195\159e GuildBook","Schlie\195\159t das Buch."},
		["GuildBookFramePin"] = {"Fixieren","Fixiert das Fenster oder l\195\182st die Fixierung an der momentanen Stelle."},
		["GuildBookEdit"] = {"Bearbeite Seite","Bearbeite diese Seite"},
		['GuildBookEditClose'] = {"Schlie\195\159en",'Schlie\195\159t das Bearbeiten Fenster'},
		['GuildBookUndo'] = {'R\195\188ckg\195\164ngig','Stellt den Original Inhalt wieder her'},
		['GuildBookSave'] = {'Speichern','Speichert den momentanen Inhalt.'},
	}

 GuildBook.localisation = {}
end
this is my German translation of your localisation.en.lua

for everybody else: just make a new file called localisation.de.lua
put in the code above and save it in GuildBook directory
After that you have to add the line localisation.de.lua in GuildBook.tac. for example under the line localisation.en.de

Started up the new version and got:

GuildBook\\GuildBook.lua:412: attempt to index field 'objects' (a nil value)\nGuildBook\\GuildBook.lua:395: in function `func'\nGuildBook\\GuildBook.lua:373: in function `OnEvent'\n<string>:\"GuildBookFrame:OnEvent\":2: in function <[string \"GuildBookFrame:OnEvent\"]:1>\n\n ---",


Also couldn't edit anything - those buttons didn't appear. Also the SV's in the account had none of the starter text/tags/etc. that the perchar did.

Also along that line, if you have multiple chars in multiple guilds, what way is there to keep data specific to one guild from syncing with another? I am guessing it may have soemthing to do with why I dont see the data available to all my chars, but just looking for more information.

So far I am enjoying this mod, as well as trying to get my guild to adopt it for basic forum and note use while in game.

One thing I would like to recomend is in the editing form, give us a little more room for dragging the window around. Since the entry fields at the top (Tagline & Title) resize to fit the top bar, that leaves little room to click and drag the window around the screen. It takes a little finagling to get in the right spot to move it. Also, when I tried using the Pin Down function, it did not lock the main window in place, I was able to move it regardless of what the Pin Down was set to.

Looking forward to more on this mod. Even if my guild does not decide to use it, I will continue to use it just for an in-game notepad since the formatting ability is available.
Yea, I checked coloring this morning and it doesn't work. I'll have to write a parser to make it work :-/. You're right about why you can't see local data across characters, it is stored per character, perhaps I'll see about changing it to be per character for the sync'd database and per account for the global database.

DOn't worry about getting your guild to use it for syncing stuff because that's broken atm. I'll figure out a drag spot for the edit frame...and I'll fix the Pin Down thing, just me being lazy.

Available now but slightly more complex.

See http://www.wowwiki.com/UI_Escape_Sequences for exact details but:

|cFFFF0000Red|r would give you red text. (Might not work, read the page for more details).

Thank you for all your hard work.
You can always get the latest unstable version from http://www.joshborke.is-a-geek.com/files/GuildBook

Report back any bugs you get. You might have to do /guildbook resetsync to get it started.

thanks to a Guildie, I've been able to start testing the synchronization portion. Currently modifying a topic works, but the initial synchronization is borked.

But before that, I neglected to mention something in my pictures. The light blue text at the bottom is a hyperlink which leads to a subcategory. Try clicking it
