First. While Norganna uses Wowhead to collect the node information, it isn't wowheads responsibility to make it work with Gatherer.
The problem that is occurring is the database file "DB_WowheadData.lua
" that comes with the current Gatherer build is damaged, its missing a lot of information. The file size is really small. I am sure this will be fixed next time Norganna updates its add-on.
For now, this post on Norgannas forums works perfectly.
I found the solution to the bug of no nodes showing. I didn't make it, but it's here on this link:http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info11707-GathererDBWoWHead.html#comments
Here's what I did:
1 - Downloaded (manually) the latest GatherDB_WowHead package from here, extracted it to my Addons folder.
2 - Renamed the DB_WowheadData.lua to .old (just so I could compare).
3 - Downloaded the DB_WowheadData.lua file from https://github.com/lloydpick/gathererdb_wowhead
(the link in several messages below). NOTE: I did NOT bother downloading any of the other files at that location, because they BREAK, repeat, BREAK the entire process. You end up with a GatherDB addon that doesn't have a "Download" button!
4 - Fire up WoW, ensure Gatherer and GatherDB are enabled for one of my characters, enter the game with that character.
5 - Enter at the chat line gatherer /config. At the gather screen, click on "Database". At the new window, click on "Import". That actually integrates all the data in the DB_WowheadData.lua file (in this case, the new one I downloaded) into the Gatherer display. You'll see the "Importing Wowhead database" percentage and bar display, and it will NOT stop at 90-some percent. Works perfectly. There's data for at least the new Cata Mount Hyjal area and many others (donno if ALL the new areas or not, but it looks like it).
So, to review: use the latest GatherDB package, but replace ONLY the DB_WowheadData.lua file with the lloydpick lua data file.
Once you've performed that import once (for one character), the data will show for ALL your characters. You can then turn off the GatherDB addon (since it'll no longer be needed) and free up some memory.
"Thought I'd add an extra step here, because I'm dumb and still had problems w/ these directions. I finally figured out what my problem was, and I thought anyone else as computer stupid as me might have the same issue. When you click on the DB_WowheadData.lua file on that lloyd site, and then click the Downloads button, it still downloads his whole package, not just that 1 file. So when you go to extract it....Dont. Instead, click on the 1 file, the DB_WowheadData.lua file, that you need, and simply move it to the GatherDB_WowHead inside your addons folder. "
