    Is there a way to easily change the size of blizzards own buffs (the ones next to the minimap) or do I need a good addon, and a bunch of setting up? If that is the case, what addon do i need?

    Quick question (will take to a full thread if I have to but hopefully not) any "known issue" addons after the landfall patch?

    Mostly the issue I'm having is the client not responding after a boss dies and I am awarded loot. It will hang really badly right after I get my loot windows (sometimes I am mousing over the corpse, sometimes not) and then go non-responsive, necessitating a force close. Sometimes this will continue for one or two more logon attempts (load into the world and immediately non-responsive), sometimes not.

    I'm sure it's an addon issue (brand new computer that runs amazingly elsewhere, all temps good, no virus/malware/etc, other player on the same internet in the same raids not having the issue) but I'd like to narrow my field of what to test, because going addon by addon for an issue only consistently applicable with a boss kill is going to be a pita!!!

    Or if someone else has just had/heard of the same issue, that would be beyond lovely too.

    I did recently update all my addons, but there were several that were still not 5.1 flagged.

    Is there any way to get more border presets for an addon like Sexymap, while it has only the classics ( blizzard dialog, square, party bubbles etc). Any media packages for example? I am pretty much interested in 1 pixel border if that helps at all.

    Once upon a time, I had an addon that, when viewing the character panel, colored the border of my equipment according to the item's rarity (and did the same for the inspect panel). However, I've completely forgotten the name. Anyone remember it?

    I'm using Stuf to handle my unit frames addon. I have a specific character name text cutoff (186 width, which comes out to about 12 characters using the size of my current font). Whenever a name is longer than those specific characters, the text moves to a new line underneath which cuts off what is under it. How can I make it use dots to finish the name, meaning when the name is longer than 12 characters it finishes it off with ... (Raider's Traini..., for example)

    Anyone have any other suggestions? Here's a pic since my explanation is kind of complicated and probably poorly worded.

    Need help of the following Code:

    The following code is what i use to indicate buffs, same effect as Power Aura. However i find it isn't like WOW built-in feature that shows only left effect when buff stacks 1 time and shows both left & right effects when buff stacks more than 1 time. Is there any way to make it work like built-in feature, and even add timer to indicate buff's left time? Thanks a lot

    PSF=CreateFrame("FRAME")
    PSF:RegisterEvent("UNIT_AURA");
    PSF:SetScript('OnEvent',function()

    o=0
    for i=1,40 do
    _,_,_,_,_,_,_,_,_,_,id=UnitAura("Player",i)
    if id==117828 then SpellActivationOverlay_ShowOverlay

    (SpellActivationOverlayFrame,117828,"TEXTURES\\SPELLACTIVATIONOVERLAYS\\molten_core.

    BLP","LEFT",1,255,255,255,false,false)
    o=1
    end
    end
    if o==0 then SpellActivationOverlay_HideOverlays(SpellActivationOverlayFrame,117828)
    end
    end)

    What addons will I need...

    Evening guys.

    Im interested in designing my own interface and what to be able to customize the following as simply as possible....

    Name Plates (the default ones at top left) including the skin
    Bar positions (including different skins)
    Move the map
    Some kind of map addon that shows zone levels (like titan used to)

    Could anyone suggest reliable addons that would allow me to do the following as Ive done this in the past with lesser known ones and theyve been discontinued!

    Thanks a ton,

    Reduce the height of the text field.

    ** Just seen sticky at front - could a lovely mod move this for me - Sorry! **
    For name plates, I'd suggest Tidy Plates - you can use one of the premade skins for it, or make your own skins (done in lua, outside of wow).

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it do that by default now?

    If by Bar positions you mean the ActionBars then Dominos or Bartender are the two most popular ones. Masque to skin their icons. As for moving the map, two options.
    1: get the addon MoveAnything, you'll be able to move the default map with that and literally everything else if need be.
    2: get the addon SexyMap(or any other map addon, but this is the more commonly used one i believe). This can skin the map in various ways and even make it square, plus it's movable as well.

    I think he actually means the unit frames. "the default ones at top left"

    Stuf unit frames or Shadowed unit frames are the two most used ones. I personally prefer Stuf unit frames as I find it has WAY more customizing.

    Looks to me like xperl (unit frames [hp/mp/portraits]), recount (dps), bartender (hotkeys/game menu/etc), satrina buff frames (buff timers), deadly boss mods (boss alerts), and some sort of generic minimap addon.

    Hey guys I have a quick question: I recently got into high rated rbgs, and as a priest it is crucial to mass dispell certain debuffs (ring of frost freeze, poly, etc). But in such a big group, it's kinda hard to see and I need to notice those debuffs on the raid frames. But the icons are too small, is there any way to increase the size of the icons? I didn't want to get an addon for it since my wow already has some "slowing" problems.

    I used to have a line displaying my cooldowns (with icons moving from right to left as time passed) as shown in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYkPI3V1t2s
    Does anyone happen to know what it is called? any help would be greatly appreciated! <333
