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
Jul 12 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.Unkle346 Jul 12
Sep 3 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. Iriel16 Sep 3
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.

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.Adreaver265 Sep 1

35m Need some help with my personal add on I created this simple add on with lots of outside help. It plays a single mp3 track whenever I enter combat. It currently works as expected. However right now it only works when I have in-game music option toggled on. What I want to do is have it work when the in-game music is toggled off. The reason why is because I hate the in-game music that plays outside of combat. Can someone look at my code and tell me how to do this? Remember I have basically zero knowledge of coding. I was basically told what to type to create this add on in the first place.

3h Map View Randomly Resetting When I bring up the in-game map and navigate anywhere other than my current location, something's happening that makes the map reset to bring the view back to my current location. This has been happening for quite some time now. The timing seems completely random. Sometimes I can navigate around to different zones for dozens of seconds, and other times, every time I navigate out of my current location it resets back almost instantly. What I'm hoping to learn here is either: 1) If someone else has experienced and solved this issue already, what's the fix? 2) Is there a reasonable way I can troubleshoot what's resetting the map view, preferably without disabling all my addons one by one?Tallywix2 3h
5h GuildUninvite() disabled Any workaround for this? It would be unfortunate that Guild Masters or Officers would have to manually right click and remove people from their guild. There are a lot of us that simply want to purge inactive players from their guilds as we don't want a guild graveyard. It seems with 7.3 they removed this functionality. Now when you attempt to run GuildUninvite(name), you get: "A macro script has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI." I'm fairly certain they removed this functionality because of the WeakAura exploit but disabling this for the entire community isn't really acceptable. I'm hoping there's a workaround, if anyone has any ideas let me know!Swampage13 5h
12h Bartender copying buttons between bars I use the same bar setup on all my alts. Right now, however, my monk, and only my monk, is having an issue where if I switch a button on one bar, it copies to the other bar. More in depth, what I mean is: I have bar 1 which is my main bar, and bar 7 which is a small bar I put my mounts on. I logged in on my monk today and the buttons from bar 7 were now magically showing up on bar 1...so, for example, the mount I had on button 1 of bar 7 was now button 1 of bar 1. If I make any change to bar 1, it copies to bar 7 and vice versa. I don't have them set to page or possess each other. And it's only happening with these two bars, and only on my monk. I...what's going on why is it doing the thingRaisheal7 12h
15h I want role icons for Vuhdo Originally my role icons only appeared on this toon's vuhdo. I wanted them on all my healers but in the process I managed to make them disappear altogether. I've read the posts and I have role icons clicked (under advanced --> indicators --> special dots) for all my toons but they don't appear on any of them. I've tried it in all settings (alone, party, and raid) but they're just gone. I would prefer to see it on my vuhdo no matter what setting I'm in. Any one have any suggestions as to why they won't show? Thanks for your help.Kowpow17 15h

16h hunter pet easy macros? Hi All, I'm trying to make pet macros for my hunter pets and I was wondering, is there a macro available for pet abilities or do I have to create a macro for each individual pet ability vs just the ability slot? I'm trying to make a macro that shows the tooltip and uses the item in the pet ability slot similar to how you make trinket/engineering item slot macros.

19h WA/tellmewhen for ability CD Hey everyone, I was wondering if there are any WeakAura/TellMeWhen guru's out there that could tell me if something is possible, and if so help me create one. Basically, all i want is for a certain sound to play (maybe a light ding or horn) whenever my holy paladin's judgement is off cooldown. All this is for is to remind me to cast it again as im still trying to learn how to play the spec for that alt. If someone could clarify or even just post an import string that would be amazing!

20h How do I make a weak aura for this? My guild mate tells me there is a way to make it so weak auras will detect when you enter combat and have it play a music file. Basically all I want to do is have a weak aura that will play a final fantasy battle theme whenever the game detects me entering combat and then have it fade when I leave combat. How do I do this if it's possible?Kalorea2 20h
22h Add on for music and this? I would like an add on that does one simple thing. Whenever I enter combat I want it to play a soundtrack of my choice. For example I would like it to play some kind of final fantasy battle theme song. Is there an add on like this?Kalorea1 22h
1d Treasures in Highmountain I'm currently stuck at 39/40. I've been running around with the Treasure Map: Highmountain Item but can't seem to located the last one I need. Just wondering if the Achievement is bugged? A question from this is why were the Treasure Maps changed to just display on the Mini-Map? By the time you have the Reputation to purchase them you've cleared a good portion of the map. I feel like the intention of putting it on the Mini-Map is you see them as your out doing Quests instead of on the Map where you could just go get them. If that is the reason it doesn't make sense when you only have 1 left, a lot of running around.Treggy54 1d
1d Inaccurate multiline editbox cursor placement Hey. I've noticed an issue with the default UI text editors. Since 7.3, when I try to edit text in a multiline editbox, the edit cursor ends up in the wrong place relative to where the text is actually being edited. The cursor appears several pixels ( as many as two lines' worth ) above or below where it should be. It's like the editbox cursor is using a different UI scale or scroll value than the actual text displayed in the box. This happens with both default UI editboxes such as the Guild Information editbox, and any editboxes created by AddOns that inherit the same class. The Macro pane editbox does not suffer this issue, even with long multiline macros. This happens independent of any AddOns being loaded.Derrek7 1d
1d TomTom Alternative I refuse to use the TomTom addon until there's a 7.3 update and I'm looking for a replacement. Preferably an add-on that will let me input coordinates and give me an arrow that will show me the way to go (just like TomTom). If the compass arrow thingy is exclusive to TomTom I'm still curious as to what other map/navigation add-ons you highly knowledgeable people are using.Drewsquared7 1d
1d Spartanui error solution desired I have started this new addon and i think i like it alot and i think i got it under control. However...

1d SUF hide and show buffs at diff. spots Hey, I was just wondering if it is possible in SUF to hide certain buffs on my character health buff, but still have those buffs be displayed in the default blizzard buffs thing that sits up in the top of your screen. For example, I don't really want to have "Demonsteel Stirrups" taking up room around my character's health bar, but I would still like to have it tracked somewhere, so I can tel when it needs to be refreshed. Any advice appreciated.Spankanstein1 1d
1d Characters with transparent backgrounds. So, while I don't really do much in terms of actual UI addons, I do have a habit of making the addon system do stupid pet tricks for my own amusement. Anything from wowhead/armory links in QR format from item links/targets... http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/wowqr To a rudimentary raycaster engine - because, why not? http://i.imgur.com/Gv339aQ.png The latest challenge was to find a way to easily get character models (or other NPCs) with a transparent background, from within the game itself. Now, in theory - this seems pretty straightforward. Simply use the DressUpModel frame, with a green background, and "greenscreen" it, right? Well, the trouble pops up when it comes to the one advantage that in-game models, have over their third-party Model Viewer counterparts - enchants and visual effects. Semi-transparent visual effects have the nasty habit of blending with said green background, which not only makes it impossible to separate the character/model from the background properly, but also tends to mess up the colors. So, another solution was required: http://i.imgur.com/UQWxCRs.png Syncing two models, one with a green background, and the other with a blue background, makes it possible to both correct the color (by taking the green channel from the blue side, and applying it to the green side), and get proper transparency, by combining the two green channels. After all, any green levels that exist on the green side, that don't exist on the blue, must be the strength of the transparency. So, with a simple external program/script, the two sides can be automatically used to create one image, with a transparent background. How well does it work? Well, pretty well actually. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dQ8bvk-Uc0Downlo2 1d
1d Weakauras - Two Forms Hey! I'm looking for a weakaura that detects if I'm in worgen form and fully automates the transform into human form out of combat. I know that's not possible, so I'm wondering if there's a way for weakauras to detect if I'm not in human form, and pop up an alert if the conditions are: I'm not in combat, I'm not in human form. Does anyone know if anything remotely like this is possible? I know of a weakaura that removes a click from entering the rogue class order hall, so is there any sort of automation that can do this via weakauras? Thanks.Vixanis0 1d
1d -=DOMINOS=- Until recently, i've had no issues with this addon but now every time i log on all my bars (1-10) are all stacked in the middle of my screen and i have to sort them and put them all back in their place.

2d TidyPlates Lua \AddOns\TidyPlates\TidyPlatesUtility.lua line 632: Usage: PlaySound(soundKitID, optional["SFX","Music","Ambience", "Dialog" or "Master"], [forceNoDuplicates, runFinishCallback] anybody know why this error keeps popping up any time I try to change any settings in TidyPlates?

2d Looking for Auto Loot/Greed addons I'm looking for an addon that will just do away with Need/Greed/whatever loot prompts that are part older dungeons. I don't want to see them leveling an alt or doing timewalking or whatever. Ideally an addon that I can configure to Need on specific types of items (pets), greed on anything I could in theory use (cloth armor for example) in case I want it for a transmog and just pass on everything else. But I would just settle for an addon that hits greed on everything too. It would be really nice if it would also work in BG's and Ashran for those idiot items (like ears or adventurer journals) that popup and then prompt for bind. I've tried Auto Confirm SP but it doesn't work for these.Tinkerizmo0 2d
2d ElvUI- How to hide names during Raid Basically Im trying to reduce as much clutter as I can when raiding, since its hard for me to click on enemies. I figured it might be nice to be able to hide all the nameplates that appear over my fellow raiders heads during the raid. I know how to remove the nameplates in general, but I specifically only want them off during a raid, and possibly during a party as well. ThanksScottxx1 2d
2d inactive action bar settings so i have elvui set up and i want to make one of my action bars inactive so that it is just there for reference of spells. is there a way to do this?Gwowns5 2d
2d Elvui issue (actionbar visibility / combat) I had some bars set to mouseover visible only for a long time but decided recently I wanted them visible all the time, but everytime I enter combat the mouse over option is re-enabled and I would have to go back in the options to unclick it again. Why would this be happening?Grafty0 2d
2d LF M-KJ mods, healing frames + portal click Looking for the mod Nova uses at 9:27 of their kill where the guy clicks a button (that normally doesn't exist, it's from a mod) and it must count as clicking the lock gate because he starts flying through the air. Also looking for raid frames for the healing adds. And while I'm here, any idea why friendly nameplates aren't working at all for me? I run a ton of addons, including Vuhdo.Twilightcult0 2d
2d Spartan UI issue Having an issue with the XP bar. Its tracking right to left. Where i believe it should be tracking left to right. Anyone else have this issue and found a fix? Running latest version 4.4.5 https://i.imgur.com/vTtLUFh.jpgFinoz0 2d
2d Math Macros Hello all. I've been working with macros for a while in wow and i just wanted to see if there was a way to make a macro that calculates the cost of an item by the amount of the item in bag. any suggestions?Felontis2 2d
2d Request: Blizzard raid frames customization I have no idea if Blizzard read this part of the forums, although, in hopes that they do i'd like to make a suggestion. I would love if they added more customization for the default raid frames in the next expansion. I've spent countless hours trying 3rd party healing addons, but i keep coming back to the default frames (skinned and font changed to match UI), especially if you pvp and pve. Some minor, quality of life changes such as: Test frames for sizing correctly Displaying groups horizontally Easily changing the texture / font of frames Able to resize and increase the limit on buffs/debuffsI believe just these few changes would make the frames a lot more customizable. ThanksHapp3 2d
2d 7.3 Druid Spec Macro Just like the title, I'm looking to see if there's a macro that will let me swap between Feral and Guardian. I want to use the same macro regardless of which spec I'm in, so I guess it would look something like the following: set spec = CurrentSpec; if CurrentSpec == "Feral" SetSpec("Guardian"); else SetSpec("Feral"); end; Obviously, I understand how it should work, just not sure of the keywords to useEyeroar1 2d
2d Mouse button Macros? I use the WoW Legendary Mouse and have most of my utility bound to the mouse buttons, I recently made a shaman to level in my downtime, and I am trying to put @mouseover macros on the mouse keybinds, but they're not working correctly. The mouseover macro works if I mouseover an actual players character, but it does NOT work on my party/raid frames. Does anyone have a solution to this?Tignyte3 2d
2d Intercept Macro Help I currently have an intercept macro like this: #showtooltip Intercept /cast [@mouseover, help, nodead][@target]Intercept Where I have it set to intercept anything that is over my mouse. I want to extend this macro so that it will do this, or if I use a modifier(ctrl), will intercept my focus instead. Can anyone help?Arondighte3 2d
2d Adding a text to my chat name?? I want to add my main's name to my alt's names in the chat bar... like [Dejë]:[Jaenelle's alt]: I looked through addons via curse/twitch.. I've searched here and looked in google. I'm either using the wrong search words or it isn't an issue for people? idk. I've seen things like (officer) after peoples names.. but I don't even know how to add that in. thanks in advance.Dejë2 2d
2d Bartender not reflecting spell CD's Experiencing some weird issues since yesterday: Bartender randomly stops reflecting cooldowns. It doesn't happen upon login, but after a while of playing random buttons just begin to shutdown and no longer display any CD. I'm under the impression this is a Bartender issue since I've used process of elimination and it's the only mod I haven't disabled now. But is anyone else experiencing this?Werdna1 2d
3d Black/Whitelist Nameplate Debuffs? Is there a way to add debuffs to Blizzard's default nameplates? I'd like to know a script or addon that can do this without replacing Blizzard's debuff frame (simply add and remove debuffs from Blizzard's default filter).Shiezko3 3d

3d Find Missing Equipment Set Items? One of my equipment sets says the neck and wrist items are missing. When I print the output of GetEquipmentSetItemIDs("Name of Set"), it lists the item IDs for all slots except for neck and wrist. For neck and wrist, it lists -1. Why does it list -1 for those instead of the actual item? Is there a way to somehow figure out what those two items were? If I sold those items, did it just delete them from the list at that time, replacing the item IDs with -1 such that there is no way to recover the data? It seems like WoW knows there were items in those slots at one time, but has no record of what they were. If that is the case, why does it work that way? This is very frustrating.Lolli2 3d
3d modifier target macro hey guys i'm trying to make a penance macro on my priest that will do the following: - cast penance at any target with no modifier - cast penance on myself with shift modifier - cast penance on the target of my target (targeting friendly target, but casts penance at their hostile target) with ctrl modifier i've tried ... the first two parts work (on target and on self) but not the last part (target of target) what am i doing wrong?Majaku2 3d
