About NotesUNeed

NotesUNeed v6.82.50001

Please do not use the comments page for reporting bugs. To report a bug with NotesUNeed, use the following link to open a support ticket.



Overview

Compatible with patch 5.0.*
Feature-rich, searchable Notes database with many automated features, and additional NuN tooltips for viewing note details.

Make Contact Notes on other Players, or General Notes on anything else.

This AddOn is for making your own custom notes on players, and quests, and items, etc. and does not come with any pre-made notes. It does provide an Export and Import Feature for sharing of sets of notes, or publishing of note databases.

The default Modifier keys for creating notes from Container Items and Hyperlinks is now simply "<Alt>-Left Mouse Click". For anyone unhappy with this key-Combo, then they can now specify their own via the NotesUNeed Options frame.

Titan Integration: NotesUNeed now includes support for displaying a pin on the Titan toolbar. Originally, however, NotesUNeed could only be used in Titan by installing an additional addon. Though that's no longer the case, and NotesUNeed provides its own Titan plugin these days, I still endorse their efforts, and some users might find that they prefer the layout and style of the external plugin. It can be found here:
TitanNotesUNeed

Compatible with LibDataBroker AddOns via :
NuN-LDB


Below is a summary of NotesUNeed functionality, but you should read the Readme.txt file for much more detailed discussion on these subjects. I've been overhauling and updating code steadily for the past few months; if you find something in our documentation that is out of date, don't hesitate to bring it to my attention by creating a ticket for it. I'm usually pretty quick to respond to new tickets.

    Thanks for the temp fix, NotKnown007!
  • #652
    My first post here to say THANK YOU to Telic to one of the best addons and the most useful unique addon in WoW as a game. Another *huge* thank you to NotKnown007 for the correction .lua file.
  • #651
    VERY NICE NotKnown007!Thx.
    NuN is running here again. YAY!
  • #650
    I'm not sure if I should take over the project but for the moment I have updated the lua file so it works basically with 3.3. Download here: http://rapidshare.com/files/319407888/NotesUNeed.lua (it's just the lua file you have to replace within the addons folder; nothing more)

    - QuestsNotes are NOT working at the moment
    - Version number not changed
    - Author not changed

    I'm trying to look into NuN over the weekend and will decide next week if i'm taking it or not :-) So long you can download the "tempfixed" lua file :-)
  • #661
    Oh yeah, you should also remove all the LFM related lines from the NotesUNeed.xml file. These will be trying to inherit from UI elements which no longer exist in the 3.3 WoW UI.
  • #660
    NotKnown. I also have a fix, I'm not sure if it is the same as yours. I have an e-mail in to Telic asking about getting post access for the mod. I too have a limited amount of time for new development, but between the two of us, we might have better luck keeping it going if you are interested.
  • #659
    Thanks for the temporary fix. It's not a proper fix but it will work for now. I had a look at the differences you've made, and it mostly consisted of removing the broken features instead of fixing them. Just noting this so that nobody thinks they should continue from this "fixed" lua file, since it's not a proper fix. However, it's good enough until someone decides to take over the project or Telic comes back.

    Just note that whoever does that should start from the current OFFICIAL version, not this temp-"fix".
  • #664
    You're absolutely right with that. NOBODY should continue development based on my "fix" :-) -I just removed a few lines so it'll work temporaray (nothing to hide behind)
  • #655
    I really hope you do take this over. The coding to this is not at all ideal so I appreciate all the effort that you will put into this. Thank you for the quick fix!!
  • #653
    Thanking you NotKnown007, I appreciate having NuN working again. TBH I never used the questnotes, just the player notes.

    I have put a copy of the file, zipped on our guild website after battling for longer than I'd have liked for a rapidfail link:- http://www.vendetta-guild.net/NuN007Fix.zip

    Would appreciate this addon being picked up, it's so damn useful.
  • #657
    Thank you for putting it up on your guild site! I appreciate it! I just couldn't download it from rapdishare.com every time I tried it told me to try back in 2 minutes or that I should become some Premium user nonsense.

    Thanks again!
  • #649
    Thanks for the great addon, Telic. I used it for 4 years and it'll be greatly missed.
  • #648
    As it was already said, patch 3.3 broke this addon. It also causes you to no longer being able to split stacks in your bags/bank if you still have it enabled. Thought I'd add this in case someone else is looking for the cause of the stack/split issue since the patch.
  • #647
    Telic, best of luck, wish you well.

    Everyone else, crp, now what do we do. Is anyone interested in picking up where Telic left off?
  • #646
    Out of all the addons I've ever used this one will hurt the most if I have to stop using it. 4+ years of info!
