Minimap Button Frame and other similar addons

All Minimap based frames (such as nodes, dig sites and dig site boundaries) have been prefixed now with ArchyMinimap To stop these addons from taking these frames from the minimap, add the following item to their protected items list: ArchyMinimap

Mini-Guide to Fewer Digs

James D. Callahan III:
    - Ensure the digsite's map icon always has a tooltip.
    - Cleanup.
    - Always update the minimap icons for the nearest site, instead of attempting to cache whether or not they've been shown/hidden. Fixes ticket #557
    - If Archaeology is unknown, return 0, 0 instead of nil for GetArchaeologyRank()
    - Make sure currentDigsite isn't nil in ARCHAEOLOGY_FIND_COMPLETE before trying to manipulate it. Should only happen when digging immediately after a UI reload, but I keep getting reports... fixes ticket #554.
    - Make sure ArtifactFrame isn't nil before checking whether or not it has a skillBar. Fixes ticket #558.
    - If a match has already been found for spellID, don't look for another value.
    - Added artifact template field "usesItemForProjectName" to fix the remainder of ticket #549.

    I'm looking into this at the moment. Instead of resetting them to the top left, I will change them to reset to the center.

    Love the new changes. However, it said that I was working on the scarab necklace for Tol'Vir, but when I opened my book it said Canopic Jar (yay!).

    1.6.3 works :-)

    and nice updates^^ thanx
  • #183
    digsites are being added to minimapbuttonframe does anyone know how to make them exceptions?
  • #186
    I'd also love to hear if anyone knows how to do this. They don't really help me if they're collected into MBF. :)
  • #203
    I'll add it to the addon description soon but add the following two protected items:

  • #182
    I just updated to 1.6.3, and my Archy windows were only partially onscreen. I couldn't find a spot that would let me drag them, so I hit Reset Positions. Now they're even more off my screen. Any hints for me on this one please? Thanks in advance for any help.
  • #214
    did you
    "If you have an old version of Archy (a version prior to 1.6) please delete the addon from your Interface\AddOns folder first then install it"
  • #185
    Just an update: I reverted to 1.5.3, and one of them came back on screen, but the other one is still hosed.
  • #181
    I use TukUI, and with Archy I got a grey rectangle right in the middle of the screen that I can't move nor do I know the purpose of it.
  • #180
    With 1.6.3 I have two issues

    The Zone/Battlefield map is not movable anymore (it was in 1.5.3)
    The minimap indicators get picked up by the addon MinimapButtonFrame, which they weren't before
  • #191
    Deleting the addon and it's settings and reinstalling fixed issue 1, the right click menu wouldn't pop up otherwise
  • #179
    Wow, congartulations, this Update 1.6.3 is a major step and works like a charm.
    Keep up the good work. Is the distancemeter movable?
