    AddOns/Settings on 2 dif accounts

    Okay, I'm kind of a rookie here, but I need some help.
    I downloaded Caithe's Ui yesterday and set it all up on my mage.
    Today I logged on to my warrior, who is on a different account, and cant load the Caithe profiles in certain add ons.
    I like the settings used on my mage, and just want to, copy them.. per say. on my warrior's account.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    modders correct me if im wrong but i believe you just copy the mod files inside the WTF -> account -> savedvariables into the other account

    i guess make sure once you login on that account that all your addons are enabled and loading out of date if needed

    Go to your WTF folder from your realm, then:
    1. delete the "warrior" map
    2. Copy the "mage" map
    3. Rename "Copy of Mage" to "Warrior"

    Note: Warrior and Mage are your char names...

    edit: I just noticed you said 2 ACCOUNTS, and if u mean rly 2 accounts, and not chars... its like this:

    WTF/ACCOUNT1/REALMNAME1/MAGE <--- copy the MAGE map.
    to
    WTF/ACCOUNT2/REALMNAME2/ <------ Here, and rename MAGE to WARRIOR

    Edit: I forgot about the realm saved viables indeed, so poster under me is better, appart from the import ingame, you can just Rename the mage to warrior also

    Re: AddOns/Settings on 2 dif accounts

    Explanation:

    Your WTF folder is divided into accounts first, characters seconds. Settings from one character/account are not available to the other.

    How to fix:

    1) Set up one character on <Account1> exactly how you want it.
    2) Note that you will lose all settings on <Account2> when you do this.
    3) Exit WoW. Failing to do this will restore a lot of settings to default.
    4) Go to your WTF folder, you will see two account names: <Account1> and <Account2>
    5) Delete <Account2> - this will remove all addon preferences, visual settings, etc for this account.
    6) Copy <Account1> and paste it into the same folder. This will create a folder named "Copy of <Account1>".
    7) Rename this folder to the exact same name as <Account2>
    8) Log into wow, and import settings/profiles from your set-up character


    Edit: Flowsz works as well, but sometimes addons are stored in the Realm-based "Saved Variables" folder, so this may not cover everything.

    Thanks for helping me out here guys but either Im doing something wrong, or something just isnt working.
    We will name account1 (which has my mage) Sakue (mage's name)
    We will name account2 (which has my warrior) Mythh (Warrior's name)

    WTF->Account-> 2 folders.. Sakue and Mythh.

    Basically im supposed to delete Mythh, copy/paste into Account and rename it Mythh.

    Then do I go in and rename Realm, Character Name? Or just log on and look for profiles?

    Thanks alot.

    PS - I like basic Caithe Ui - just for some r eason when I go to choose Caithe profiles, they arent there.


    Thanks so much!

    here is how it should look:

    account1: Snyggve
    Realm: Kul Tiras
    char on that account: Trollias
    account2: Tryggve
    Realm: Karazhan
    char on that account: Seglias

    WTF/Account/Snyggve/Kul Tiras/Trollias

    WTF/Account/Tryggve/Karazhan/Seglias

    under Snyggve and Trollias you will also have SavedVariables
    and under Tryggve and Seglias you also have SavedVariables

    what you basically do is make a copy of the Snyggve folder
    and then rename
    Snyggve -> Tryggve
    Kul Tiras -> Karazhan
    Tryggve -> Seglias

    that would make it so you have the same profiles on both of them...
