UI and Macro

Jan 20 Welcome! Please read! Welcome to the UI and Macro forum! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss user interface customizations for World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy, so we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en/community/conduct) and guidelines (https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20752671773) before posting. Important Reminders: Search The search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely effective and robust. Before you create a new forum topic, please be use it to search for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer for which you are looking. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming. Rating The forum rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, demote unhelpful comments, and even report posts that violate the forum Code of Conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with several options, including a "thumbs up" (Like) and a "thumbs down" (Dislike) icon. Clicking the "thumbs up" icon will rate the post up. If enough people like a post, it will gain a Highly Rated status and appear at the top of related search results. Highly Rated posts will also have a highlighted background. Clicking the "thumbs down" icon will expand a drop-down menu which will include "Dislike," "Trolling, "Spam" and "Report" options. "Dislike" will rate the post down. If enough people dislike a post, it will be darkened, and with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden completely. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of a violation. Please note that you can only rate each post once. Use your power wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Have fun posting on these forums, and good luck with your adventures in Azeroth! Guidelines In addition to the forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en-us/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft. The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net, or Blizzard Entertainment are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words "Blizzard," "Blue," or any community team members' names in a thread topic is frowned upon. Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that; however, use of such words in the subject line does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Posting "First" or IBTL ("in before lock") constitutes as spamming. You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL ("in before the lock") is not helpful, and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Do not "bump" posts. The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called "necro bumping" or "necroing"). Petition posts are frowned upon. These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Do not post about locked or deleted threads. Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum Code of Conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules. There is also cool down period we institute during times of high forum traffic. If you are violating policy during one of these times due to frustration, you will be given a three-hour cool down suspension. This does not get logged on your record and is simply in place to keep the forums readable and civil. Serious violations will still have the appropriate action taken against them as documented in the Code of Conduct, and we do keep track of these cool down periods separately—if one is found to be repeatedly violating policy, appropriate action will be taken.Kaivax0 Jan 20
Feb 17 FAQ: Installing & Troubleshooting AddOns How to Install AddOns for World of Warcraft - By Unkle of Grounding Totem, US Kirin Tor - With a tip of the hat to Lopeppeppy for her original guide. When AddOns are properly installed, a new button appears in the lower left corner of the character selection screen of World of Warcaft, labeled AddOns. If you do not see this button, your AddOn is not properly installed or no AddOns are installed at all. - Where to Get AddOns Always download your AddOns from a reputable source. The author of this guide recommends you use the following sites for most of your AddOn needs. ● WoWInterface.com - http://wowinterface.com/ ● Curse.com - http://curse.com/ - Extracting your AddOns AddOns are delivered in compressed files to save space on hosting sites servers and to reduce the amount of time it takes you to download them. They are commonly in .zip format with some .rar format files. Windows and Macintosh computers have native support for .zip files. If your AddOn is compressed in .rar format, you will need another program to open them. Your web browser may also be able to open compressed files for you automatically after they are downloaded. For Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 users I suggest 7-Zip. ● http://www.7-zip.org/ For Mac OSX users I suggest The Unarchiver. ● http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/apps/unarchiver.html When the AddOn is extracted, you should have a folder that is named the AddOn’s name. ... Some AddOns have sub-folders inside their main folder. This is fine, and you should leave them there. Some AddOns are called one name, but are really multiple AddOns delivered together. When this happens, you download a compressed file that has several folders in it. ... - Where to Put AddOns Once You’ve Extracted Them AddOns belong in the following folder: World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns ... Put the folder you extracted into the correct folder for your operating system. Correctly installed, my example AddOn, Fane, looks like this: ● Windows XP C: \Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Fane [C:] (or which ever drive you have the game installed on) |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane ● Windows Vista or Windows 7 C:\Users\Public\Games\ World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Fane Windows Vista or Windows 7 [C:] |----Users |----Public |----Games |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane ● Mac OSX [Macintosh Hard Drive]../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/Fane [Macintosh Hard Drive] |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane The most common issue with why your AddOn won't load. If you have an extra folder layer in the mix, your AddOn won't load. [C:] |----World of Warcraft |----Interface |----AddOns |----Fane1234567 <-- Extra Folder. Bad folder. No biscuit. |----Fane More Installing Resources: ● WoWInteface.com’s Instatll FAQ: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/faq.php?faq=install#faq_howto_install ● WoWInteface.com’s Image of Correctly installed AddOns: http://www.wowinterface.com/storage/faq/correct.gif ● Seerah’s excellent YouTube video for installing AddOns (using WinZip on Windows XP). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dylXGXET8OA - What to Do When Something Goes Wrong ● Make sure AddOns are in the correct directory. - Do you have more than one copy of WoW installed? If so, did you put the AddOns in the right copy’s folder? This is especially important if you install multiple copies of the game, or you’re installing the game from DVD after a major expansion such as Wrath of the Lich King or Cataclysm. You can right-click on the icon you use to launch WoW (Windows) or use "CMD+I" (Mac OSX) to get the properties for the short cut. The properties will tell you the "Target" of the shortcut (or alias) which is where your copy of WoW is installed. - Did you extract the AddOn correctly? Make sure you are unzipping/uncompressing your addons. WinZip, WinRar, 7zip, The Unarchiver and StuffIt (for Mac) are common unzipping programs. See the section above on Extracting Your AddOns. WinZIP users: You must make sure the option to "Use Folder Names" is checked or WinZIP will just extract the files and not make the proper sub-folders. - Did you accidentally get an extra folder layer? If you have a folder called something like AddOnName6.01.01 with folders under that named like the examples above, you’ve copied the wrong things to your AddOns folder. See the section above on Extracting Your AddOns. ● I used the Repair Tool and now my AddOns are gone! When the repair tool is run the Interface and WTF folders get renamed with the date added to the file name. This means those AddOns won't get loaded. You can simply rename the folders without the date. If the problem that caused you to run the Repair Tool was being caused by a rogue AddOn you’ll have the problem again if you do this. ● Don’t install AddOns while WoW is running. WoW doesn't register addon changes until you exit the game and restart it. Save yourself some frustration and install only when you’ve completely exited the game. Log in to check them, log back out as necessary to fix things. ● My AddOns didn’t load after a patch! From the character select screen, click the AddOns button. In the upper right corner of the AddOns screen, check the "Load Out of Date Addons" box.Unkle344 Feb 17
Nov 4, 2014 AddOn Development Reference (PLEASE DO NOT POST QUESTIONS IN THIS THREAD, USE THE FORUM FOR QUESTIONS) While there are numerous sites available with WoW UI API Documentation, there are a number of useful features that aren't exactly API calls, but are really useful to AddOn developers. Extracting UI Files (coming shortly given cataclysm changes) Lua File Arguments Whenever WoW loads and runs an AddOn's .lua file (not including saved variables), it passes in two parameters which can be accessed via the ... token: local addonName, addonTable = ...; The addonName is the name by which WoW is referring to the AddOn, based on the capitalization of the AddOn's .toc file. The addonTable is a private table which is sent to every file in a particular AddOn (but is distinct from the table sent to other AddOns). The game maintains no global registry of these tables, so it's garbage collected if not used, and an AddOn must grab its own reference to use it later. Iriel14 Nov 4, 2014
Nov 16, 2010 UI Add-On Development Policy 7/15/2009 Music Distribution through UI Add-Ons We have recently seen a number of User Interface Add-Ons that are making modifications to the World of Warcraft in-game music files and wanted to take a moment to go over some important points with the community in connection with this. While we are currently allowing Add-Ons that remove or replace existing sound files, keep in mind that it is illegal to distribute copyrighted materials, in this case in-game music and audio files, without authorization. One of the primary goals of the user interface is to allow players to customize their game experience and we hope to avoid making any modifications in the future that will prevent this. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4/13/2009 UI Add-On Development Policy Update On March 20, we released the new add-on development policy to the public as an ongoing effort to help ensure add-on integrity, safety, and quality for the community. Since that time we have been in touch with many UI development communities on what the policy means to them and the continuing development of these add-ons. We would like to announce further that we are providing a sixty-day grace period beginning at the time of the initial release of the policy for UI developers to comply with the new policy. After May 19th, Blizzard Entertainment will begin to enforce the Add-on Development policy, and developers found to be in violation of this policy will be contacted directly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- World of Warcraft User Interface Add-On Development Policy With the continuing popularity of World of Warcraft user interface add-ons (referred to hereafter as "add-ons") created by the community of players, Blizzard Entertainment has formalized design and distribution guidelines for add-ons. These guidelines have been put in place to ensure the integrity of World of Warcraft and to help promote an enjoyable gaming environment for all of our players - failure to abide by them may result in measures up to and including taking formal legal action. 1) Add-ons must be free of charge. All add-ons must be distributed free of charge. Developers may not create "premium" versions of add-ons with additional for-pay features, charge money to download an add-on, charge for services related to the add-on, or otherwise require some form of monetary compensation to download or access an add-on. 2) Add-on code must be completely visible. The programming code of an add-on must in no way be hidden or obfuscated, and must be freely accessible to and viewable by the general public. 3) Add-ons must not negatively impact World of Warcraft realms or other players. Add-ons will perform no function which, in Blizzard Entertainment's sole discretion, negatively impacts the performance of the World of Warcraft realms or otherwise negatively affects the game for other players. For example, this includes but is not limited to excessive use of the chat system, unnecessary loading from the hard disk, and slow frame rates. 4) Add-ons may not include advertisements. Add-ons may not be used to advertise any goods or services. 5) Add-ons may not solicit donations. Add-ons may not include requests for donations. We recognize the immense amount of effort and resources that go into developing an add-on; however, such requests should be limited to the add-on website or distribution site and should not appear in the game. 6) Add-ons must not contain offensive or objectionable material. World of Warcraft has been given a "T" by the ESRB, and similar ratings from other ratings boards around the world. Blizzard Entertainment requires that add-ons not include any material that would not be allowed under these ratings. 7) Add-ons must abide by World of Warcraft ToU and EULA. All add-ons must follow the World of Warcraft Terms of Use and the World of Warcraft End User License Agreement. 8) Blizzard Entertainment has the right to disable add-on functionality as it sees fit. To maintain the integrity World of Warcraft and ensure the best possible gaming experience for our players, Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to disable any add-on functionality within World of Warcraft at its sole discretion. For more information... If you are an add-on developer and have any questions about and this User Interface Add-On Development Policy and how it pertains to the add-on that you've developed, please don't hesitate to email us at WoWUI@blizzard.com.

3d Macros - What Every Player Needs to Know Table of Contents: ------------------------------- 1. Intro - Macro Basics 2. Macros - What can they do? 3. Macros - What can they NOT do? 4. Conditionals - How do they work? 5. Scripting - What is possible in a macro? 6. Macros - Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts 7. Off-GCD Abilities List 8. More to Come 9. FAQ 10. Reserved 1. Intro - Macro Basics Macros are a very useful tool within the World of Warcraft client. They allow you to combine multiple actions onto a single button. While the entire macro will run every time, actions which trigger the Global Cooldown will stop later GCD actions from functioning. You can make a macro to take almost any action you can click or keybind, with certain restrictions. Macro commands can be made more useful with [conditionals], snippets that check on various things to allow a small degree of decision making. While macros stop at the first valid item from the top down, individual commands stop at the first valid conditional, from left to right. Macros can be used to execute scripts, small snippets of Lua code, from within WoW without the use of an external addon. This is done by using the /run command. Scripting is an advanced feature and is explained more in detail in post 5. There are a number of tips, tricks, and shortcuts to help you get the most out of your macros. Most of the ones listed have come from this very forum, and I have consolidated them here to make it easier. My intention is to continue to expand this post with more useful information over time, so feel free to add a post with any questions or useful information you think I should add.Adreaver233 3d
Feb 11 UI Changes coming in 7.2 From our latest PTR Patch Notes: User Interface You can now assign a specialization to an equipment set in the Equipment Manager. An “Open All” button has been added to the mailbox. You can now preview an ensemble set by CTRL-clicking it. Spellbook Spells that haven’t been moved to an action bar are highlighted in the spellbook. Mousing over a spell highlights it on your action bar, making it easier to locate. Pet spells can now be dragged onto the player action bar. Quick Join Auto Accept: A setting has been added to allow friends and guild members to instantly join your queues without a confirmation. This setting is located in Interface Options -> Social. Group tooltips now show the available roles and if auto accept is enabled. Right click a Quick Join group to whisper a member of that group. Please note that if you find a bug, it's best that you report it in our 7.2 PTR Bug Report Forum. Thanks!Kaivax13 Feb 11

23m Some help understanding some macros 1. Is it possible to swap from one class spec to another? I'm using the in-game Equipment Manager regarding gear. 2. Is it possible to use a macro that forces a stance/shapeshift and then, if that stance/form is active, casts a spell or uses an ability afterwards? For example, you enter moonkin form by pressing the corresponding macro, but if you are in moonkin form it will cast the Flap spell. 3. Is it possible to get multiple windows, like the character panel and all bags/backpack, to operate with a single macro?Natharia4 23m
28m G15 chat... bug thing It took me this long (sadly) to figure out decent ways to use my very old G15. I just figured out I didn't *have* to have delays in my multi-key macros. Yeah, I'm kinda slow that way. Anyway... Using my first key's macro as an example, /cast Dalaran Hearthstone, I'm having an issue with its interaction with the chat input field. After I hit the key, the command goes through and works. The chat input field appears inactive (ie, not actively being typed in). However, it also displays a leftover / symbol, and the macro won't work any more. I have to manually open and clear the chat input field. I've tried adding the keystrokes to do that, to no avail. Any tips?Solithä4 28m
30m Macro: Offer gear drop to party members I always like to offer any unwanted gear drops to my party members when in dungeons. Problem is people are in such a hurry to run to the next boss I often don't have time to link it in chat before everyone has run off and left me. Okay I admit it, I am not that good at running, fighting and typing all at once. So I'd like to make a macro that I can just mouseover the item in my bag and it will link it in my party chat and offer it up for anyone who wants it. Is it possible?Ravenborn0 30m
32m Macro: stop spell cancellation on double tap Hey all, It seems like I used to have a macro that would prevent a spell from being cancelled accidentally from double tapping, but can't find it. Anyone know how to do this? I have Breath of Sindragosa in mind, but I'm sure there are a lot of spells with this issue. Tried a few versions of [nochanneling], but it doesn't seem to be working. Is there a command to prevent casting if BoS is toggled on?Ðoctorknotty1 32m
1h Vrykul Drinking Horn cancel macro help! Hello! I am looking to make a macro that does the following with the Vrykul Drinking Horn. I don't know if it's possible, but here goes: Looking for a macro that when I press the Button once it uses the toy and doest the cast time for the effect. Then, when I press it again, it will cancel the Vrykul Drinking Horn aura, instead of just applying it again. Is this possible to do? Thanks in advance.Thorawitz1 1h
1h Talent Tree line names? Pre-legion the talent tree for specific lines where you had things you could use had names, so in a macro if you wrote /use LINENAME1 it would use Talent1, Talent2, or Talent3, whichever you were specced into. As a warrior, I would love to have this back for at least specifically my first line because it has Shockwave and Storm Bolt, and rather than having to jump back and forth between macros when I change my talents around, I'd like to just create one macro and call it good. Currently, my macro is: #showtooltip /use [mod:shift] WAR STOMP; Shockwave (when I have Shockwave) and a second macro written as: #showtooltip /use [mod:shift] WAR STOMP; Storm Bolt I'm open to thinking outside of the box in terms of a solution, but a talent tree line name as in days of yore would solve all issues. Thank you!Daddie1 1h
2h Time Dilation / Gul'dan macro? Is there a way to create a hot key for Time Dilation for Gul'dan? I have tried a macro with /cast Time Dilation and /use Time Dilation but it does nothing. Also tried dragging the button to my bar like garrison abilities but It can not be dragged. Anyone mind helping me get this as a hotkey? I lose my cursor a lot during large raids so it would really help. Thanks!Makieve4 2h
3h Raise ally macro with yell target name Basically what I want is to yell the name of the target I am rezzing with the Ingvar speech. Target name your pathetic failure will serve as a warning to all! You! Are! Damned! Now rise and carry out your master's will! Any help will be greatly appreciated.Sscavenger5 3h
3h Addon for secondary stats % display Hi guys, I'm awful at wording things how I want to so my google searches for addons are basically junk in, junk out messes at the moment. Is anyone aware of an addon which shows a tooltip or some sort of information window for individual gear pieces which shows the % amount being added by the secondary stat on it I.e if a piece of gear has 400 critical strike, it would show it is giving you 1% critical strike etc ThanksSoldravyn1 3h
5h BM Pet Call/Revive Macro? I'm trying to make a macro that has all this baked into it. /cast [@pet,dead] Revive Pet /cast [nopet,nodead] Call Pet 1; [@pet,dead] Heart of the Phoenix Sometimes it works, sometimes it freaks out and just keeps trying to call a pet even though the pet is dead. If I changed it to this; /cast [@pet,dead] Revive Pet; [nopet,nodead] Call Pet 1; [@pet,dead] Heart of the Phoenix would it work right?Sybrant5 5h
5h Addon to track multiple alts auctions? So I'm starting to get active in AH's for different characters on different realms at the same time. This can end up being kind of complicated when you know you listed a BOE, but can't remember which realm it was on for example. It is also hard to check when you have been undercut if it means you need to switch characters completely just to see (and if you werent undercut, switching chars might have been wasted time.) So I was just wondering: Is there an addon that can track all your active auctions accross multiple characters, and show you which character auctioned what, and show if you were undercut on an alt you're not actively logged into? Thanks for any replies.Cyy0 5h
6h Macro I used for basilisk eye farming I created a macro to make farming Dampscale Basilisk Eyes slightly easier: #showtooltip Dampscale Basilisk Eye /script SetRaidTargetIcon("target", 8) /cast Arcane Shot /cleartarget /target Dampscale /stopmacro [@target,exists,nodead] /target Ironspine /stopmacro [@target,exists,nodead] /target none The way it functions is not typical: the first use of it fails to cast anything and only selects a target; the NEXT use of it triggers a successful cast. It's like a function with return()s in it. I wanted to have a single macro to target all four potential basilisk types that can drop the Eyes, and this was the only way I could conceive to do it; I tried without success to create one that could first conditionally target any of them and then cast in just one use. Is a further optimization for convenience possible?Vulcanturist1 6h
6h Scrambled Bars Randomly, my action bars come up scrambled - Spells in weird places. I've been trying to figure this out for a long time with no success.

Input appreicated.Taksama2 6h

13h Touch of Karma Symbol Missing? In PVP, I've recently noticed that I am not seeing the Touch of Karma symbol appear above the head of monks when I fight them. I know that they have it up because GladiatorlosSA is saying, "Karma", and because they take no damage when I attack them... yet, no symbol is over their character's head. I have Elvui and KuiNameplates installed. Could either of these add-ons be causing an issue? Is this a simple config issue I'm missing? Any help is appreciated.Dakhari0 13h
14h Random BG (queue) Macro Is there a way to macro BG random queue? With the Random queue being "broken" I've found that I have to queue requeue every 5 minutes in order to get my BGs to pop. It is getting tiresome Leaving Queue (on the map button) and then rejoining ("H" key). Any ideas or is this even possible?Gobolin30 14h
16h Desperately desire a Stat Squish addon This guy started making one a few months ago but claims he needs help with coding. This addon would have exactly what me and several of my friends are looking for: remove integers from the crazy stat bloat. Characters in Legion now have millions of HP and we are hitting for 100,000-500,000 damage. This is a reason they squished stats in WoD from MoP, and Legion is pretty much reverting a lot of those stat squish changes unfortunately. We need to get this guy some help! His addon allows you to visually scale HP, mana, and damage by a percent from 0.01 to 1000+. Theoretically it lets you overbloat your stats if you really want to do that. I would love to see our HP return to less than 10k and our damage less than 1k like Vanilla days. It was much easier to add up the numbers in your head during combat. Some people even prefer smaller numbers. This addon can do it if he gets help! Here is his MMO Champion post: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1983616-StatSquish-Addon-need-help-from-an-experienced-addon-creator Here is his Reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comments/4frr5x/statsquish_addon_testing_try_out_my_addon/Gimork3 16h

1d Simplest possible addon to track hots I hate addons passionately. I love the default UI, and using macros and the full set of UI keybinds accomplishes the majority of the same things people do with addons. The only addon I like is recount.... But I want to be able to see my hots while playing a druid. I want the unit frames to look normal. I dont want some ridiculous clunky popup frame that wants me to set people as main tanks, and alert me if people have low health. Anybody with a pulse can tell if somebody is at low health.....its shown right there in the unit frames.... Is there anything I can get that ONLY shows hot durations? Or one of the big clunky addons that I can disable 99% of it and get what I want??? A row of my hots under each persons health bar as if I am targeting them (or the same way a debuffs show up on people I am not targeting) would be a dream come true.Adiabatics9 1d
1d Mouse bindings while cursor over raid frame My problem is that when I am hovered over or selected a raid frame, I can't use my mouse bindings to heal. I have to select the frame then move the mouse off of the frames entirely, to the middle of the screen, then press my mouse binding, to complete the heal. This causes wrist strain quickly. I downloaded Clique and set to heal with left click on the frame, but sometimes I want to use other spells and I don't want to set many keyboard bindings because I have trouble with those. Also I have a limited number of mouse buttons. Are there replacement raid frames that allow me to cast spells while hovered over the raid frames, or can I do it with the Blizz frames. I like them a lot because they scale very well. (I need large frames because my vision is not that great) I tried elvui but I couldn't get it to scale as big and as clearly as Blizz frames even using the built-in scaling options. Thank you!Kalphredd2 1d
1d Reskin personal resource? (Video) https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=0aXze_IcgG4 He says he would link the ui pack it was from but didn't so I'm left trying to track it down myself. I'm specifically trying to figure out how to skin the personal resource bars and resize them.Kerromar3 1d
1d [Help] Hiding weak auras, no target selected I have a text weak aura that shows the number of Anticipation stacks (a buff) on my rogue. It's just a single number between 1-3 (white text) and 4-5 (red text), currently made using two different auras with two different triggers (based on stack count). I would like it, however, to hide the stack counts when I have no current target, but I can't find out how to do this on my own. I currently have it set to hide out of combat, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. Any help is appreciated, thank you.Rectangle4 1d
1d "If, then" macros Used to do some basic and pascal programming, and I remember using these things called "If, then" statements, basically telling the program to run a function based on a condition. There are several things I would love to use an "If, then" statement for, for example "If target has hunters mark on him, cast arcane shot. If not, cast hunters mark." Anyone know if something like this is possible?Macstab6 1d
1d Battleground Targets Addon Fix - Post 7.1.5 Battleground Targets Addon Fix - Post 7.1.5 I've tested this and it works until the developer provides an update from the 08/2016 latest build - (credit to Krampus-Velen) for sharing. It fixes the character class (showing up as a ?) and /bgt also works again. NOTE: Blizz does not support addons - i'm just sharing the info so you can fix your BG targets addon if it's broken. I have emailed the developer as well. Steps to fix BG Targets: 1) Open up battlegroundtargets.lua with notepad in the following directory C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\interface\addons\BattlegroundTargets 2) After opening battlegroundtargets.lua with notepad - save it to battlegroundtargets.old (so you can replace back if you mess up) 3) Close the file 4) Open up the original battlegroundtargets.lua with notepad (you won't see the lua extension this time) in the following directory C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\interface\addons\BattlegroundTargets 5) Once open in notepad - open EDIT then Find search on local id (this will bring you to the section you need to edit) 6) Replace old line with new and save and exit / then restart wow. OLD: local id, name, _, icon, _, role = GetSpecializationInfoForClassID(classID, i) NEW: local id, name, _, icon, role = GetSpecializationInfoForClassID(classID, i)Kiesel16 1d
2d Zone Ability Button is missing I just switched from elvui to z perl and bartender. (there were some things I didnt like about elvui). Now my zone ability button is missing. I used my Emerald Winds toy and ended up falling to my death. In bartender I can position the button but it doesnt show when I use something. I went to my garrison and it shows up there. Any thoughts as to what is hiding it? In bartender the bar is enabled and in the visibility tab none of the boxes are checked.Pasco1 2d
2d Curse.com VS Deadlybossmods.com I don't know if this is a common question, has been answered before, or what - I have searched the forums and not found this topic. I don't frequent the forums, so forgive me if this is one of "those" topics. Deadly Boss Mods, the addon (DBM), is available both from curse.com and deadlybossmods.com (some parts are are available on curseforge.com, let's just consider that part of curse.com). For a while deadlybossmods.com was kind of defunct or something, so I started downloading DBM from curse.com. I use curse.com for all other mods. Today a new DBM came out. However, I noticed something when I went to download from curse.com - I already had some releases that were "more recent". That got me to wondering. First, the trivial: DBM Core from curse.com is titled "DBM-Core-7.1.15.zip". DBM Core from deadlybossmods.com is "DBM-7.1.15-r15924-Core-and-Legion-Mods.zip". That's not a problem, it's just a title, and the byte size is *almost* the same. Now for the rest... I found that curse.com was offering "older" releases than what I already had installed for some elements. That was certainly odd. I went to deadlybossmods.com and found that they are offering "newer" releases. Curseforge.com is offering "DBM-PvP-r59.zip". Deadlybossmods.com is offering "DBM-PvP-r62.zip". (I had r61 installed already) Curseforge.com is offering "DBM-WoD-Mods-r10.zip". Deadlybossmods.com is offering "DBM-WoD-Mods-r12.zip". (I had r11 already) OK, I wouldn't care - one site has older releases, no big, right? Except that I was certain I had downloaded the entire suite from curse.com, except for the Proving Grounds and PVP mod. Maybe I am just thinking about curseforge.com...I can't recall. In any case, that doesn't explain the WoD unit being old. What happened? More importantly, are there any substantive differences? This kind of thing has been going on for *years*. I keep bouncing back and forth between deadlybossmods and curse.com. Who is the real deal? Are they the same? Why isn't curse offering the latest? And I could understand them being one iteration behind, but two? Also, why does curse.com deliver some addons through curseforge.com? What's the deal there? Please advise. This is driving me nuts. (FWIW I decided to install the deadlybossmods.com releases...but the uncertainty is annoying me.)Xoebe1 2d
2d If @mouseover == me ?? Is it possible for mouseover to differentiate between myself/player and everyone else?

2d Logon to Character Creation Screen I have 6 characters on the same server. More than half of the time I logon to play, the Blizzard launcher takes me straight to the character creation screen instead of my server which lists my characters. This started about a month ago.

2d Can you hide the 'Omnibar' text/box? I know you can hide the icons of spells, but there's still a bar that remains saying "omnibar". Is there a way to completely hide this addon? I know an alternative add on interrupt bar can be completely hidden from the screen, but It doesn't have the function to add or remove spells like omnibar does.Serenitty1 2d

3d Enabling numeric value on XP bar?! I know this sounds like a dumb question, but I am having trouble getting the numbers on my xp bar to permanently show, artifact power, reputation, etc. I have went to the interface menu > Display > Status Text and enabled "Numeric Value". I get the numbers on my health and mana bars but for some reason my xp bar does not change or show text (except on mouse hover). I know at one point in time the text was always visible regardless of mouse position. Is there something I am missing or maybe an extra option that I am passing over? I have went through the in-game menu a couple times trying to find a "show experience bar text" as I seem to recall there used to be an option for just that. It has been a while since I have played and I know things have changed/moved around. If anyone has any tips on how to fix this issue please do tell!Eyesickle3 3d

3d Keep map focus on zone when moving Now for all I know this is not standard WoW behaviour, and I have an addon that's doing it, but.. Is there an addon that will keep the map open to the subzone I change to when changing subzones and/or zones while moving? I frequently auto-fly forward while opening my map and changing zones to set a tomtom waypoint, but when I change subzones while moving, and you get the popup at the top of your screen with the name of the subzone, the map will switch to the current zone I'm in. For instance: I'm at the dark portal, I start flying north and open my map. I right click to zoom out to the continent of Eastern Kingdoms, I left click on Burning Steppes to set my waypoint to Blackrock Mountain. As soon as I fly forward into another subzone of Blasted Lands, the map automatically reverts back to Blasted Lands from Burning Steppes. Any way to change this behavior? Thanks for the help. Edit: The map does this regardless if the map is full screen and blown up, or shrunk down using the little southwest facing arrow next to the X.Dirgon8 3d

3d Aggro percentages/Losing Threat warning I'm sorry if this is a really stupid question, but how do you toggle the aggro percentages shown on the tooltips, and the floating text threat warnings (Losing Threat etc)?
