About Professional

An addon guide to leveling all your professions from 1-525. (Beta Test at this time)

You can open/close with /pro or /professional or click the NEW minimap Button!

Additions for the future: Open to suggestions.

Bugs: Guide format issues (just me taking the LONG time to format a cleaner text)

Please report all bugs to my ticket system here:
This way I can manage any error reports better.
In fact if you can answer step 1 in the defect ticket, it can solve 90% of all problems.

(NEW)f.a.q. located here:

Any devs who know how to do future enhancements please contact me.

v1.0k beta test Fixed naming and showing of guides. Fixed close button from not showing.

v1.0j.1 beta test Fixes the blacksmith error, however this version does not fix the guide display, so no game guide will popup for you.

v.1.0j beta test Contains more guides converted to the new engine format. There are some that need to be worked on yet and will be released at the next update. This should fix any problems with Professional not opening for some users as well. I have left the support ticket open for others to use if they still encounter the problem.

v.1.0i beta test Updated to a new engine for guides to match current skill in profession. Alchemy is the only guide at this time in the new format. Added a minimap icon below clock that is ? and will open Professional with out /pro or /professional (but these commands still work). Updated guide info screen to no longer use background strata.

v.1.0h beta test A "patch file" was given to me to fix the scrollframe text to stay in the frame by llothos on wowinterface. I fixed some minor typos, and fixed some functions. A First aid button and lib have been added.

v.1.0g beta test updated frame.lua for an error of " ..\AddOns\Professional\Frame.lua line 126: '<eof>' expected near 'end' ". I don't know if I fixed it or not. If you still get the error, contact me as I'm not getting the error. This is even more true if your locale is not English!

v.1.0f beta test updated frame.lua for locale support. In Lib folder all the lua files have been updated for locale support. Translations of buttons and guides required. So for now anything but English won't show. If you wish you may downgrade to v.1.0e during the process of translation.

v.1.0e beta test updated frame.lua in preparation for locale support. Locale support is not active at this time, until I can't work out any bugs. Updated alchemy, blacksmithing and enchanting guides for hyperlinks. Blacksmithing and enchanting items needed are prepped for checklist frame. Checklist is still in process of being developed. Any translations of the guides MUST contain the hyperlinks and not alter the original system in order to be official to Professional. I will include a readme for the guides for translations in the near future. Updated Lib/About.lua

v.1.0d beta test changed frame.xml to allow a more dynamic textstring scroll within a framescroll. Tested all guides for length not getting cutoff and appears to work.

v.1.0c beta test with improved Alchemy guide including partial hyperlinks (like in the chat channels). Addition of Cooking as per request. I don't have a guide written for it yet, so if anyone wishes to contribute a guide to speed up the process, please do. ScrollingFrame text does not scroll. (please help on this if you know the solution. preferably with out fuaxscrollframe. Mine is based from TradeTrax help window, which does not use such a method that I'm aware of.)

v.1.0b beta test with full data. known bug is scrolling does not seem to work.

v.1.0a alpha test to see if most functions work

    my thoughts are dead.. :/    if not.. then... are you not able to lvl up from above 1? can it not recognize your lvl being 300 then work from there?

  • #83

    Are you still working on this? tried to use it to level up enchanting, but it says it can't load guide because i dont have the enchanting profession.

  • #80

    I'm playing in a private WoTLK server, so I thought you addon would be perfect, but it always says that's not loading because I don't have the profession... Did it work for 3.3.5 in the first place?

  • #82

    If possible please fill out a support ticket. lepaperwan is correct in neededing that info, but I would also like to know which version you used as well. I don't foresee issues with using my addon on a private server as it is hard coded data and not pulling from a wow server. Also did you have a profession yet? If so which ones?

  • #81

    It did work back then only maybe not on all locales, so if you could just post your WoW Build and locale, I'll have a look at the code to see what might be creating errors :)

  • #78

    ???? dead or not ????

    not laoding a guide as i do not have the proffesion, well i do.

  • #79

    Not dead yet, just not working right. I'm trying to get a new interface to work for MoP. Once I have a semi working addon I will upload it as an Alpha test.

  • #76

    I would love to see this addon reworked for MoP, with possibly a submission for 4.3 if you have time, on the way to MoP.

  • #77

    I will see what I can do, but the interface and engine have been giving me trouble. Wish me luck!

  • #75

    I guess nobody submitted anything. I'm going to be re-build this from the ground up to hopefully have ready for Mists of Pandaria.

  • #74

    I would also like to hear some feature you would like to see for the addon. Please reply to this posting or submit tickets. I will compile a list by the end of april and have a vote on what everyone wants most.

  • #73

    I haven't given up on this project. I would like to ask anyone who is good with lua to help guide me to get a stable version setup. I will admit SW:ToR is taking me away from WoW. But I want this to be the best addon it can be.

  • #72
    As I've not heard anything from megamanzteam, I'm currently working on a major update. It will be based off of the 1.0h coding that many have liked as it gives you the freedom to view whatever profession guide you wish. At this time however, I will only be focusing on the primary professions. Archaeology will not be added to the guides as it's a bit dummy proof and there are already several addons to help with it such as Archy. Expect word on the update in roughly a week.
  • #71
    To let those who are still following this, it is NOT dead. RL issues have developed for myself and have caused a delay. We are still working on this so not to worry lol
  • #70
    Well the new code is giving me troubles and may delay my planned launch of the alpha. Right now it is the guide frame display logic. If I can condense the engine more the load and memory usage should be better (I hope).

    As always I will gladly accept any help programming this since I'm a beginner with lua for WoW.
