Frequently asked questions

Why it doesn't work?
Please check if you have HandyNotes installed. Also note HandyNotes_Trainers doesn't come with preconfigured database. You can help me create one by sending me your SavedVariables file to my email: zarevak [a] gmail [point] com
Will it work with my Map addon (Mapster, Cartographer, ...)
Yes, it will. HandyNotes are written independently on any Map addon and if your addon doesn't screw up, it will work.
Will it work with Cartographer?
Cartographer notes use Cartographer_Notes addon as base for its note system. HandyNotes are using their own system independently on Cartographer. HandyNotes icons will be shown on your Cartographer, but they won't be available to addons working with Cartographer notes.

Planned features

  • Filters to display only trainers you are interested in
  • Better support for Weapon Masters to remember which skills each one is teaching

    For those wanting to get this addon working without having to check "Load out-of-date addons", edit the HandyNotes_Trainers.toc file and change the very first line to read:

    ## Interface: 50300

    I can confirm this addon does work properly with WoW 5.3.0 using HandyNotes r230 (and also with Mapster 1.5.4).  The latest HandyNotes as of this writing is available here:

    last update of Handynotes broke this addon for good--I also noticed the problem reported by croana below--thinking that this addon has been abandoned. May have to delete it.
  • #34
    I've put this on the main handynotes page as well, but it occured to me that this is a problem specifically occuring with the trainers that I talk to. Handynotes has started placing the icon for the last trainer that I've talked directly on my character arrow on my minimap, stuck with me wherever I move. (I use chinchilla minimap.) Is there a fix for this incoming?
  • #33
    Is there any planned update for 4.0.1? I get the same error that weasoug reported on 20 October 2010 as soon as I talk to any trainer, which then seems to stop this from tracking new trainers!

    I just added this to my addons, and it's awesome. ^.^

    I just found one odd thing about it so far.

    I ran around Undercity, to mark every trainer, and one of them popped up on the map with the Hunter mark; it was Derek the Undying, he even has the title of .

    Coordinates for him: 52.6, 15.9 - in the War Quarter, closest to the War Quarter, near a claw-tank-thing.

    Vendors, Trainers, Mailboxes, etc, only show up after I've visited them... is there any way to get them to just show on the map? Or is there some kind of additional library/database of information that I can download? Or is it an option I haven't located?
  • #29
    Hi, Charlyne, currently these addons are only tracking places you visit and I don't know of any publicly available premade database of locations.

    In previous versions there was a plea to send me your SavedVariables for me to be able to create a premade database, but only one user sent me his database and it was not enough to include it into the addon. If users will sent me their databases, I will release the compiled database to the public :)
  • #36

    There has to be a database available somewhere. I refuse to beleive that, after all these years, nobody has mapped all the trainers, vendors and such.

  • #31
    Hey Zarevak, just wanted to say nice job with the HandyNotes series, I would definately recommend it as a replacement for Cartographer (I use it with Mapster). I'm currently working on building a database of trainers and vendors for both the alliance side and horde side (horde side will take some time as I don't have any high level horde toons). I was wondering if there was a minimum size you were looking and if I could send my database to the posted gmail address that you have for localization files as well.

    Nice :D Like it ;)

    Dear AddOn author,

    Recent Information from WowMatrix: These Addons (in bold) cannot be installed or updated at this time, because it is being hosted at either Curse or WoWInterface.
    Both of those websites do not wish to have updaters connect to their sites, and have deliberately blocked updaters from doing so, starting right on the day of the 3.1 patch.
    Although we do not agree with the actions of these sites, we respect their position in this matter, and are working on ways to bring you a quality selection of AddOns without connecting to these sites.
    If any of these AddOns (in bold) come with a free distribution license (such as GPL, BSD, public domain, etc.), let us know and we should be able to get it back online relatively quickly by hosting it on our servers.
    Otherwise, if you know the author(s) of these AddOns, you may wish to get in touch with them and see if they would like to host their
    AddOn(s) on our servers, and have them contact us if they do.
    In the meantime, thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Here's my list of WoW AddOns. The bold AddOns are currently unable to be installed or updated through WowMatrix and I would ask you to please contact WowMatrix at to host your AddOn(s) on the WowMatrix servers, as this is the easiest way to update multiple addons, as well as it is less risky than using Curse client. I personally refuse to use Curse client because I have heard too many horror stories of people's WoW accounts getting compromised as a direct result of using that service.

    Thank you in advance,
    Diana Peek

    Any chance of an update for 3.1? :-) Cheers!
  • #23
    Hooray! Thanks! :D

    In the Addon Cartographer_Vendors or also in Gathermate the Tooltips of the Map-Symbols, which are close to each other or which are overlapping, are summarized in one big Tooltip in which all the several Tooltips are included.
    So you can read all of them at once.
    Would it be possible to realise this feature in your Addon Handynotes_Vendors and Handynotes_Trainers,too? Or is this a problem of Handynotes itself?
    Thx and a happy New Year!
