Question How To Get "ItemPreview" Addon Working?

Hi. I'm really interested in getting the discontinued addon "ItemPreview" working for myself and my S.O.

We'd really love an addon that would allow us to preview things the default game doesn't allow you to, especially from item links, etc. (My impression is that ItemPreview adds this functionality.)

...But, I can't figure it out. I don't know if the instructions on the comment page are just misleading, or if I'm totally missing something here. Please help.

While it would be wonderful if someone took over the addon and kept it in working order, I'm not going to hold my breath. I know everyone is super busy, and taking over someone else's work probably doesn't feel as rewarding as it all being purely your own work. I get it. Plus, I imagine someone would have done it already if anyone wanted to do it.
(What could potentially entice someone to take over the addon?)

Here's a snippet from the addon's comment page:

found this one here https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info....html#comments
I'm extremely confused. Whether I download this manually with my browser or use Minion to install it, I only end up with a "FurniturePreview" folder. That's all that's in the zip file. I don't have a "CraftingPreview" or "ItemPreview" folder.
But from what I've read, I should have all 3 folders.
Help? Please?

It would be great if someone would post a link to a fully working version, so we don't have to download multiple things and do the fixes ourselves. More likely to screw up doing it ourselves. Or just be totally confused, like I am.
Thank you in advance for any helpful responses. <3

Oh I just found out if you download "ItemPreview" you get the zip archive "Furniture Preview"!
So just take the fixed Furniture Preview from your link and you should be fine to go?

Additional you should go with Rhyono's furniture preview fix here https://gofile.io/?c=PlVwEo


Older post of mine - Irrelevant as it seems
The first link chinamicas workaround fix contains the CraftingPreview folder which you want to test.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/m6r991cn8p...round.rar?dl=0

Download this folder/file (and extract it to your AddOns folder).

But there is no ItemPreview folder in any of these files.
Only Furniture and Crafting Preview.

And there is also a comment von chinamicah about ItemPreview:

-Add the following line after line 296:
return nil
The resulting code should look something like this:
Code:
294 if IsOutfitStyleArmor(outfitStyleId) then
295 categoryIndex = 12
296 numSubCategories = 7 -- 7 armor types
297 return nil -- continuing crashes the addon
298 end
299 if not categoryIndex then return nil end

This should be added into the ItemPreview.lua I guess.

Unhappy It Isn't Doing Anything For Me

Okay, so I installed the file from "Rhyono's furniture preview fix" link.
The addon is enabled, and the settings for it appear properly in the Settings > Addons > ItemPreview page.

But... it's not allowing me to preview armor and weapons. No matter if they're in my inventory, my bank, or on a guild trader.
I've tried disabling "Preview on mouse click". That didn't do anything.
(How do you preview anything without a mouse click? What is that option even for? There doesn't seem to be any available keybinds to set for this addon.)

So I re-enabled "Preview on mouse click". No change. Still can't preview armor or weapons.

The only addons & libraries I have enabled are:
Addon Selector
ItemPreview (Furniture+Armor)
Votan's Keybinder
Votan's Settings Menu
LibAddonMenu-2.0
LibCustomMenu
LibDialog
LibMainMenu-2.0
LibPreview
LibStub

Any ideas?

Comment from ItemPreview comment section, dated month June 2019:

HOWEVER, if you use NoThankYou! or another addon that stops your character from spinning, inventory previews won't work at all. If you use Free Dialogue Camera, bank previews won't work.
Also, armor/weapon previews won't work no matter what you have installed due to game changes I have yet to find the time to determine if there is possibly a workaround for.

Question What Does It Do?

Ahhhh... Soooo... The addon doesn't do anything extra that the base game doesn't already handle?
Unless I'm mistaken, you can already preview furniture from a guild trader, your bank, or your inventory.

Does the addon still add any new functionality at all?

By using it in conjunction with CraftStore, most furniture can be viewed from anywhere.

Ahhhh. I see!! I disabled ItemPreview, and noticed if I tried to preview any furniture from CS's furniture list, I got a message in the chat that stated, "CraftStore: ItemPreview required!"
Cool. That's handy enough for me to have a reason to keep ItemPreview!

Thank you both for your responses!

If anyone finds a way to get the armor & weapon previews working again, please let us know.

Okay.
I updated my comment on the ItemPreview page. Hopefully it helps others in the future.
