Wowhead Quests  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: beta 1.1
by: sid67 [More]

UPDATE: I am no longer supporting this mod. I've started use Cladhaire's Lightheaded and I am really enjoying it. I don't make addons for glory, I simply make them for my own benefit so that the game is more enjoyable. If someone else wants to create a more improved version of what I am already doing, more power to them. And if it's better (like in thise case), then I'll adopt it myself. I hope that's a big enough endorsement of Lightheaded.

Personally, I recommend using Lightheaded with Mobmap. The combination of the two addons together makes alt-tabbing to look something up on the web a thing of the past.

-----
What is Wowhead Quests?
Wowhead Quests is a UI interface that hooks into the default QuestLog and displays the quest comments from the Wowhead website for any quest that you ALT-CLICK. The comments are stored locally in two "load-on-demand" databases (one for Horde, one for Alliance). Each database is approximately 1.7 megs and only one is loaded at a time.

Why is this useful?
Wowhead is a website similar to Thotbot where users can share comments about specific quests. This typically offer suggestions for completing it and often xx,yy coordinates for where you need to complete the quest objective.

Credits: This is a modification of ostap's addon called qcomment located on Curse. Qcomment is a plugin for nQuestLog and requires it to function. This addon will operate as a stand-alone because it hooks the default QuestLog. It also offers the seperate load-on-demand databases to keep memory usage to a minimum. Also, comment frames will stay open until you close them and you can have several of them open at the same time.

Compatibility Question

This looks like a good idea. I haven't tried it yet, but does it work with MonkeyQuest and MonkeyQuestLog. Thanks.

How do you turn it off?

ok I can get this mod to work just fineand it looks great. The one problem I have is when the screen comes up I can't find a way to close it. I do the right click and get the menu but when I click on close it just closes the menu not the window.

Thank you for the help

UberQuest

Is there any way to make this compatible with UberQuest? It would be great if you could do that. Thanks.

EQL users: I think I have narrowed down the problem to a compatibility issue between EQL3 and a library I am using called Quixote. From what I understand, EQL3 basically doesn't let any addon that uses Quixote work. I'll take a look into it soon, but it may be a few days. I only use Quixote for handling the lookup of the quest title, so I should be able to remove it entirely by creating my own functions for handling it.

Also, I hope you can implement a faster, more convenient way to close the comment-window.
(((confirmed)))

When were you getting that error? I tested the EQL3 located here with this addon and it worked fine. They were the only two things loaded at the time. Is it possible you were running EQL3 and QuestsFu at the same time? They might not like each other.
When? yesterday and today, i cant get it to work with eql3
right now im using doublewide, questsfu and wowhead... talk about having to do some work arounds to get'er working semi decent

I'm sticking with it though... persistance might pay off.
I like what QuestsFu tried to do, and if used all on it's own it's a good mod, but it aint into grouping, loves to solo My hopes are that EQL3 and Wowhead get tested together in every possible way till all things worked out.
