1. 3.3.5 RaidBrowser Using Global Channel

    After spending a fair amount of time looking for pug raids in the global channel, I attempted to make a raid browser addon similar to the (broken) one provided in game. Instead of having to frantically search through /global for raids, this addon displays all the LFM messages in a nice list frame. Here is an example of how it looks ingame:



    I found it immensely useful myself, and I figured others might find it useful as well.

    There's a more complete readme on the github page that describes features and lists more explicit instructions for installing/using.

    I work on the addon whenever I get have some extra time, but if you have any suggestions or ideas just send me a pm or open up an issue on the github page.
    https://github.com/Ostoic/RaidBrowser

    To download the latest version go to https://github.com/Ostoic/RaidBrowse...ses/tag/v1.2.1 and click on RaidBrowser.zip. Then just extract the folder to your addons folder like any other addon.

    To use it ingame, just type /rb or go to social frame -> raid -> raid browser and it will pop up from there.

    I wish more people used the raid browser vs spamming global chat. I appreciate this addon!

    Are you in the global channel? If not just type /join global and it should work. The addon parses text from channels you're in, so it can only display raids that you see.

    Of course I joined global, the instructions weren't exactly hard to follow. It just doens't work, I don't know what else to tell you. Do you know if there is a conflict with other addons? I'll try disabling every addon except this one to see if it works.

    EDIT: I found out what the issue was. When you unzip the zip-file inside the addons folder, it doesn't create it's own "RaidBrowser" folder which contains all the smaller .toc and .lua files, those files are just unloaded into the general addons folder. I had to create the "RaidBrowser" folder manually and unzip it inside there. If you get that worked out nobody else will have this issue, and now the addon works fine. Great job!

    EDIT 2: Seriously this addon is pure genius, holy **** it's useful. Gonna recommend it to everyone

    Thanks for telling me what the problem was. I recall one of my friends having the same issue, so I made a note of it in the readme.

    I'm glad you found it useful!

    Looks like it can't find my gearscore or something like that.
