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been overhauling and updating code steadily for the past few months; if you find something in our documentation that is out of date, don't hesitate to bring it to my attention by creating a ticket for it.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.

3. NuN has a MicroButtons panel with 4 buttons for quick access to features. This frame can be moved by dragging the small border surrounding the buttons, and can be hidden if not needed (see slash commands). From left to right the buttons are :

  • Options : toggle the NuN Options frame
  • Note Browser : toggle the NuN Note Browser frame <Alt> Left Click to browse General notes only Right Click to browse Quest History
  • Contact Note : create a note for the current target will create a General note if current target is an NPC <Alt> Click to re-open the last opened Contact Note

    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!
  • #645
    Nooooooo!!! Don't stop this add. Have used it many years.
    Can't someone take over?
    Really sad if I have to leave this addon.
    You have made a very nice addon Telic. Haven't seen any other addon that can give me the same flexibility. But respect to you Telic and thx for the addon all these years.
    If you can point at another similar addon I would be happy.

    Regards
  • #642
    Try a mod called Player Notes (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/player-notes-netherby.aspx) its updated for 3.3 as 3.3 completely broke NotesUNeed =( Its too bad as I have used this mod now going on 4 years or more I think. I wish someone would take up this great mod.
  • #644
    yea, i usedthis addon for aprox 3 years, too.

  • #641
    For anyone who has lost vital information they really need (like I did) you can find your information in the LUA file. I'm no computer tech, but I know enough to poke around my computer and find things I need. If you're not sure where to go...

    -Open My Computer and navigate to your World of Warcraft folder. Usually found under C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft, maybe Blizzard\World of Warcraft. (I don't recall, because I installed mine to a custom folder.)

    SavedVariables.

    -Search through the list for NotesUNeed.lua. Right click on the file and click on Open. A message will probably open saying "Windows cannot open this file."

    -Click Select the Program from a List, and hit OK.

    -Now UNCHECK THE BOX that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". (If you do not uncheck that box, then it will transform all of the icons for your LUA files. At least it does in my personal experience.)

    -Select Notepad from the list, if it isn't selected already, and hit OK.

    When the file opens it's going to be very long with a lot of coding. However you can hit Ctrl+F to open a search box and type in what you're searching for. (Player name, name of item, etc.) In my file the custom text I had entered is easy to spot amongst the coding.

    I hope this helps others retrieve their lost information. Methinks I shall resort to pen and paper from now on. Not as convenient, but not much choice now as far as I can tell.
  • #640
    Does anyone know of a good replacement for this Mod? I only used it for taking notes, saving me the hassle of keeping a binder full of notes. I relied on this mod SO much, and I'm upset that it is gone forever. (Although I am not upset at the Author for taking his leave, and I wish him the best of luck!)

    Now I have to see if I can dig through the files and find a way to retrieve information from this. I had some vital information recorded, particularly on people, that I need badly.
  • #638
    I'm in the same boat. I really loved this mod.

    I've spent an hour today reading about how to make mods.
  • #639
    I need a better knowledge of XML and LUA before I even try and figure out any of this.
  • #637
    This addon has been retired...which is quite sad since I depended on this addon for my guild management needs...it was buggy but workable so much that it has stores notes for recruitment dates, black lists, boss encounters, and loot rule spam without the need for macros.

    What's worse...is that it is not functioning at all now...
  • #636
    Please fix this for the 3.3.1 Update.
    Thank you very much for the addon
  • #635

    Sorry peeps, but I'm effectively retired.

    I have removed the PayPal buttons from WoWInterface, which makes it easy to do - and I am TRYING to remove them from Curse & WoWUI also, which seems to be a lot trickier.

    I may come back to WoW some time next year - but probably not...

    If anyone wants to take over development then you can e-mail me at the contact e-mail below, and I will cooperate as needed.

    Sorry, and thanks for all your support over the years.

    Sorry to see you go Telic, thanks for all the work over the years!
  • #632
    Hey guys,

    I have been getting the same issues with errors on login as well as when opening the quest log. I've made some changes to the code locally which seems to have fixed the issue and re-enabled support for quest log note buttons.

    I could post my changes if there's interest and the author doesn't mind.
  • #633
    I'm interested.
  • #634
    Here ya go:
    http://www.organized-evolution.com/NotesUNeedv6.58.30200_Patch.zip

    Just unzip directly into the Interface\AddOns\NotesUNeed directory. It will overwrite the existing versions of the 2 files contained in that .zip. Hope that fixes the issues for you - I've only tested it on my machine.
