    it does much more as well .. i normally include it into any addon compile i use for myself and my guildies

    would love to see even an underpowered version of this, with features to potentially come .. i use very few non-ace addons, but this has to be one of them

    about your first post, you could download the addon "NotePad", then copy the guide and paste it in the NotePad

    its what i do to see a guide that i use while playing ;)

    for sure, and i've been doing such .. but i'm really looking to expand on the idea. also, there are problems with a) larger guides, and b) when i want to include images for examples (maps, unit placement when taking on a boss, etc)

    not to mention keeping a dozen different topics in game, and using one at a time ..

    which is why i think it's the better path to create a new addon that could .. i suppose potentially, hold a book of static information

    Oh one more thing ..

    Are there any generic guides to building your addon? Whilst the scope of such a tutorial would be HUGE if it covered everything, it's the basics I'm interested in. How to build a form, populate it with text, multiple tabs, maybe add in other content like how to create a /command as a button or even effectively hypertext a section of text as a /command. How to save settings perhaps .. and use those settings to alter the form content. That sort of thing.

    I'm still searching, but the information I'm tending to find is either fragmented, too advanced, or well not there ..

    Howdy,

    I'm looking to make a few in-game guides for my guildies, with a focus on instance guides at first. What I'd like to do is fairly simple .. basically have a single Table of Contents type page which links to a larger form. This form would consist of the textual information as well as artwork (generic maps, player location guides, instance mob pics, etc).

    I'm more than happy to hardcode everything as there will be no need to change the content on the fly. All releases would be under the control of the specific instance master within the guild.

    Could also expand this to include other guides like, how to get your engineering up and the like.

    I've been wandering the wowace wiki, and basically got lost about five times. Searched via google and the usual sites for simular code that I could examine and get ideas from, but have had little success.

    Has anyone got any pointers for a programmer (who's not done LUA) to do such? Are there any ACE (even older ACE) projects that I could use as a basis?

    I'd be more than happy to provide the framework to the public, with perhaps some crafting guides in there to show how to make your own.

    Any advice is welcome :)

    Regards
