SLDataText - Guild List

UI and Macro
Just prior to MoP dropping, the addon started acting weird, specifically the guild list part. Sometimes, it's non existent, sometimes it's on screen, but says "Guild - 0" implying no one is on when there are people on, sometimes it says the correct number of people, but hovering over it only lists a few in the dropdown tootlip, and lastly sometimes it works perfectly fine. All other features work 100% fine.

From what I gather, it's entirely random. Is anyone else experiencing issues with this addon, have experience with the issue, or assuming the problem can't be fixed seeing as support for it is non-existent, a suitable replacement that carries most of the same functionality?

No, as it removes the features I like most about SLDT, the Guild/Friends dropdown menus.
Perhaps it's time to move from SLDataText to something like a DataBroker addon?

You need a Data Broker display addon to use this.

Taffu separated some of SLDT's parts into modules again, and one of them is the Guild section.
Search WoWI for "SLDataText" and you can find all of the new modules.

One thing to remember, though, is that Taffu has gone to a tool tip system, instead of using drop-down menu's. My guess about the reason would be the large amounts of errors caused, apparently, by addons that use the default drop-down menu system.

I had used one in the past and wasn't very fond of it. Thank you for the suggestion however.

I'll give them a shot, thanks.
