FAQ
- General
Q:Is this addon complete ?
A:No this addon still in a beta like state, most things work and it should be usable for now, but dont except a fully functioning addon before rc1.0. This addon is here now for testing and developing it, so please download it and test it and if u find bugs post it here

Q:How can i submit a bug report
A:Much things are needed for a bug report. First if u discover a bug check the comments or the bug reporting tool on this site to see was it already reported by somebody. In the bug report please submit the following data:
- Description of the bug
- Client Locale
- How do u reproduce the bug?
- Are other addons loaded ? (see below)
- Is the bug without addons ?
- Which addon is loaded when the bug appeared (see below)

If the bug isnt there with default UI, but is there with all the addons loaded do the following to find out which addon is causing it:
1 Disable all addons
2 Check if the bug is there
3 Enable one of ur addons
4 Do 2,3 until u have all the addons loaded

- Features
Q:My 'Lock Tracker' function is grayed out and i cant move the tracker
A:CT_Core and other frame mover addons are hooking the QuestWatchFrame:SetPoint() function which makes beql unable to position the tracker where it like it to be. So if CT_Core is loaded the addons quest tracker mover functions are disabled, u cant enable them with theese addons loaded. To move the tracker u must use the other mover addon (CT_Core, MoveAnything etc.)

Q:bEQL's tracker is gone and the tracker options are grayed out.
A:If Fubar_QuestsFU the addon disables his tracker use QuestsFU's tracker.

Q:Adding new quests doesnt work
A:The 'Add new quests' function requires a perfect translation into your locale to work, without this it cant find the line 'Quest Accepted: '.. to pick up the quest name to add it to the tracker. Currently only enUS and enGB are 100% supported. The localization will be complete when the addon will be released (1.0).
Some locales for some languages are still missing, if u fell that is not good so u could write theese files yourself :). Use the localization.lua and localization-de.lua as templates. localization.lua will hold all the strings im using, and localization-de is now the best (not compelete) file written.
Keep in mind that there is no if GetLocale() == .. line in the default (localization.lua) file but in the others (see localization-de.lua) u MUST include them.

    Is it possible to stop the quest log from opening EVERY TIME you turn in the first/last quest? It doesn't automatically open any other times.

    I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame you.

    It would seem Angelike has gone missing again. That is why I took over "managing" this project last time. If anyone wants to help maintain it just send me a PM.

    Just wanted to let you know that I've been using BEQL and AAT in Cata Beta and both have been working fairly well. Some error messages on occasion but the functionality is there.

    I was so excited to see this addon updated, so I installed it today in hopes of getting rid of QuestGuru finally. Unfortunately, I was soon disappointed when I could not adjust the size of the text in the quest tracker. I moved the slider all the way to font size 18 and nothing happened. The default font size is way too small for me to read with a slight visual impairment, so sadly, I had to go back to using QuestGuru.

    I downloaded version 328r and was glad to see all of the required quest items were showing in the Tracker. Then I started noticing that I keep getting BEQL steps in my general chat box. I disabled line 61 in beql.lua: DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("bEQL: " .. tostring(text)). Disabling this line help remove all of the beql chat spam, but it also turned off the tracker. I opened a ticket for BEQL Chat spam. I think there is a line that is used for testing that should be disabled when testing is complete. I tried the work around posted below, but it only disabled BEQL. At the moment I have system messages turned off.

    about the noisy debug message

    i've solved the problem with the following steps:
    1. open interface/addons/beql/beql.lua with a editting tool (better ultraedit, but notepad not recommended), comment the following line with "--":
    DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("bEQL: " .. tostring(text))
    2. in interface/addons/beql/beql.lua change
    debug = true
    to
    debug = false
    3. open WTF\account\XXXXX\SavedVariables\beql.lua change
    debug = true
    to
    debug = false

    now, enjoy the clear world :)

    Downloaded and installed r237 and it seems to be working - both the tracker and quest log - other than the debug spam I get when I click on anything in the tracker. It's looking pretty good so far, Angelike!
