House of Winters - Quest Journal  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.0

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- House of Winters - Quest Journal
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NB!!! The latest patch introduced a bug regarding the SavedVars file.
Read more about it here: http://www.esoui.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1843


The Quest Journal lets you keep track of your quests as you journey across
Tamriel.

Please note that the Quest Journal does not know about quests completed before
you installed this addon. You can however manually update which quests you have
completed or if you have previously installed the Esohead addon and kept it
running, you can import the quest data gathered by the Esohead addon to your
Quest Journal.

Instructions on how to perform the import can be found in the Change Log.

Suggestions and feedback are most welcome!

Best regards,
Kentarii

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Renamed zone "Stros M'kai" to "Stros M'Kai".
* Added import functionality to read data from Esohead.lua saved vars datafile.
IMPORT-HOW-TO:
1. This functionality requires that you installed the Esohead addon.
2. Verify the existence of Esohead.lua, usually in a folder similar to this:
C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\liveeu\SavedVariables\
3. CLOSE THE GAME AND MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR SAVEDVARIABLES DIRECTORY!!!
3a. Why do I need to close the game?
- Because I told you to!
Main reason is that SavedVariables are only persisted when you do a
logout, reloadui or exit the game.
3b. Why do I need to make a backup?
- Again.. because I told you to!
4. Did you really make a backup? Don't come crying to me if you didn't!
5. Start the game as usual, log in to your main character.
6. To parse the Esohead.lua file and get a preview, please run: /qj import
7. The Quest Journal window will now list all the quests it found in the
Esohead.lua file. Already tracked quests will be marked with their
respective colors and will NOT be imported again. Only quests in white
will be imported. The bottom line lists some numbers.
8. To perform the import, run: /qj import-esohead
9. To go back to the normal Quest Journal window, run: /qj show
Note 1! The quest "One of the Undaunted" will be falsely imported for all beginner
zones.
Note 2! Any quest you have done on an alt character will also be imported.
Esohead.lua does not distinguish between characters.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.0.1 (2014-05-12)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Commented out auto-switch to quest info on add/complete.
* Added various settings to the settings menu.
* Added Betnikh zone along with 9 quests.
* Added public/group dungeon quests for all zones.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.0.0 (2014-05-11)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Quest Journal was separated from the HoWUI addon to make it more obvious what
the addon is about and make it more visible when searching on esoui.com

Edit 3: Only way i could make it work again was deleting SavedVariables file, essentially losing all my quest progression.
I made a small fix that I think solves this problem and it should show up on the optional files page at some point when its approved for upload. It fixed my issue which was very similar to this one, because printquestinfo() can possibly try to use quest data for an invalid quest the way the checks are set up in the original.

It only shows undiscovered quests in the list, not on the map. You have to find them yourself.
It is not possible to add quest markers for undiscovered quests since I don't have the coordinates to them all and there is no public source of data for that.

This will be hard for me to reproduce unless I can see the contents of your SavedVariables file.
Regarding quest names, might be some upper/lower case issue as well. I got the quest names from Esohead website and sometimes the quest names ingame might change after a patch without me noticing.

I checked "Garments by Odei" and "The Jeweled Crown of Anton" and saw that I had both of them registered as completed in my Quest Journal at least.

This addon does not work as Skyshards/Lorebooks etc.
It will only show pins as you pick up new quests and complete them.

You haven't missed anything, it's not possible atm, I'll look into adding it to a future release.
Will probably do some work on the state filters as well to make it more obvious.

Open up your map. Click on filters. Untick the QJ pins.
