    Getting this error on characters without Archaeology:

    Professor\Professor-0.5.0.lua:837: attempt to index field "UIFrame" (a nil value)
    Professor\Professor-0.5.0.lua:837: in function "SetHide"
    Professor\Professor-0.5.0.lua:32: in function <Professor\Professor.lua:17>
    (tail call): ? 

    And indeed, in OnEnable() you're only creating the UIFrame for characters who have the profession, but you're always attempting to hide it.

    I've experienced this as well. Here is the LUA error I get

    This is one sweet addon!

    I currently have v0.5.0beta installed.

    With this version the only chat window command that is working is /prof, no form of the /prof detailed X command works.

    The way it's working right now it's almost pointless having it installed...

    The chat window commands don't work right, the GUI screen window can only be turned off/off via the options panel, and if there's any way to have the GUI window switch to a 'details' view I can't find it

    The on-screen display is a nice idea, much prefer that over the info being shown in the chat panel, but it's really a pain that you can only turn it on/off via the options panel.  So, at a minimum, Is there any way to toggle the Professor's on-screen window on/off from the keyboard instead of aways having to go info the options panel so I can at least efficiently use the window??

    Download the zip file from Copy everything from the zips CallbackHandler-1.0 folder to Professor\libs folder. It fixed Professor for me.

    I just tried the beta, it only puts a tiny black bar in the middle of my screen and /prof says 0 solves.

    Looks like the libraries were a bit messed up. I've fixed those now.
  • #17

    Didn't work for me either.


  • #16

    4.3.2 works just fine. Previous post is incorrect.

  • #15

    Looks like this addon has been abandoned. Even loading out-of-date addons, now all "/prof" does is tell you there is no such command, and I did check that it's listed with a checkmark in my addons list. Oh, well. Goodbye.

    A suggestion:
    Since it is known how many fragments are required for each project, and how many times we've completed them, it could be possible to get a total fragment count (estimate obviously, since using keystones would inflate the number) per race, and overall in the output normal output. Would be entertaining to compare to other people.

    API changes in 4.0.6 caused that, fixed.
