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.

Its not a bug, its intended to be there. I don't know why you're unzipping things directly to your addons folder.. that's just asking for trouble. You should delete the folders that already exist, unzip the zip and then copy the files to the right place.

You have your readme.txt located at the root of your zip file, which makes it end up in the ...\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns folder instead of ...\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\LightHeaded.

No big deal, just a heads-up.

Pushed a new version for a fix for that issue, which would only occur if the ItemRefTooltip was opened before LightHeaded had created its frames.

I've just posted a new version that includes primitive search functionality. Right now you can search by name or qid in order to display a quest you don't currently have. You can also click a quest link when your cursor is in the search box and the QID will be extracted and the search will be done, making it easy to pull up the information for a quest someone else has.

Let me know if you run into any issues with it, and thanks to havoc for poking me enough to make me write it!

I wouldn't expect an addon author to do something for just 1 person, but what would work would be to upload each version twice or something (so there is an up-to-date version in the archived files page) It kinda sucks because Lightheaded is definately in my "Top 5 addons I can't play without" . Again, thanks for any info about what I can do to fix this or where I could ask about how to fix this. (made a profile just to post this, I dont have a clue how to make a forums post or anything right now )

Thanks - Darkstalker22

Edit: P.S. Sorry for the incredibly long and most likely annoying post.
Unfortunately I can't post the addon twice (and that wouldn't make sense in any way). I suggest you try another web browser, as it sounds like yours is having a problem with the script that serves the file to your browser. Other than that you should be able to sign up for email notifications which contains what might be a more direct link to the file. I'm not terribly sure what more I can do to help you out, but I've reported your issue to the site developer.

PS: LOVE THESE 2 ADD ONS!!
I suspect you are getting an error or something out, but you need to report it to me so I can fix it. You also never need to log out/back in, you can simply type /console reloadui to reload the user interface. Please ensure you have "Display Lua Errors" enabled under Interface Options -> Help and report any errors or more information.

Not terribly likely, considering the amount of time and work that has to go into writing the page parser so I have a copy of the data locally. It's a really neat idea, but I probably don't have to time to expand out to that :P

Nothing changed in this code that can easily explain the behavior change you are seeing. TomTom and LightHeaded continue to work just fine together, you could potentially have another addon conflicting or you may be experiencing the occasional issue with the way blizzard renders the widget. You should try disabling all other addons except those two and doing some testing. Alternatively, you can try clicking slightly higher than the actual coordinate link and some have reported success doing that.. when this occurs.
