The PTR Fix worked for me. TYVM for fixing this ''dewin'' I have a Profile for all of my chars because it's handy when i change my bars and something goes wrong. I just load the Profile and can start over without having to remake all my bars.

What i did exactly (this was before the Patch for the PTR was up):

I downloaded the new Patch and logged into WoW when i saw ... no buttons After reading the new posts here...

i went to: C:\Programs\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Macaroon

looked for the file: Macaroon_Bars LUA file and opend it with Notepad

in the Notepadfile i clicked on: Edit (at the top, i think it's Edit with the English version, i have the German one so i am not sure) and then on Search

i copied the text: local handler = CreateFrame
from the post and pasted it into the searchfield

when it found the text, i made sure i had the right textline and then just deleted this: ,SecureHandlerShowHideTemplate

don't forget the '' , ''

I saved the file, started WoW and everything was working fine.

Thanks again for taking the time to fix this '' dewin''

greets chesnoeky

I don't know what happens if you don't have a profile, but if you aren't getting an error and just have a blank screen with no bars, you can try here... http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.php?id=221&a=faq
Also you should still have a minimap button or if you have fubar it will be up there--to create bars.

Edit: The only thing I can think of, if it should start with a main bar and bag bar or what (I can't remember anymore), is that your bars have flown offscreen. However, the keybindings I had do not work (it is using blizzard's bar settings, so I'm assuming that there just aren't any bars anywhere)

If you create a bar it should act as your main bar. FAQ has something about a bags/menu bar (I don't use those). Depending on your class you will have to right click the new bar and check 'stance', and start from scratch.

From what I remember though, macaroon doesn't start with a 'main bar', it starts empty. It won't even look like you have it. You have to create your main bar and disable blizzard's bars in the main menu; and adjust accordingly (stance,page, etc. depending on class)

This does work, I just fixed the problem in 1 min. If you are having problems:

0. Make sure you have this current version installed that isn't working with 3.0.8 (meaning, if you tried doing some 'fixes' to it and it still isn't working, start fresh)
1. Download the zip in the quote above. Do not replace your Macaroon folder with it, just download it.
2. Open that file, then extract the macaroon_bars.lua file into your Interface/Addons/Macaroon folder. Replace the already existing one.
3. Open WoW, make sure relative addons are enabled, log in (if you have bugsack or swatter you should notice there is no error sound) then type /mac menu, go to your saved profiles and load it up.

If this doesn't work for you you probably don't have a saved profile, or did something wrong. It's really easy..

Yep me too, I have done all the fixes below but still do not get the main bar or bag bar. I didn't have backup of my WTF or a profile to reload, if that makes any difference. I'm willing to start from scratch.
I am able to add bars after the steps below, but my main bar and bag bar are missing.

You guys who say its "fixed" are you getting all the bars back?
Even the main bar and bag bar? Is that something you have to add manually?

I have been looking but can't find options to create a bag bar or the main bar.

I can confirm that this does, indeed, work great.

Just install the new mod (here) and then, before going into the game, drop the single file in that "fix mod's" Macaroon folder into yours, overwriting the bad one that this posting has.

That's it.

If you saved your profile before (I do, so I can copy changes to other characters), they will still be there and you can re-load it to any affected characters.

Thank you very much for the fix! I would have hated to have to use something else in the meantime.

ACK!

ok.... I have tried the afore mentioned "fixes" 3 times, each time i would totally clean and reinstall from the previous version, and mine will not work at all. Still only getting 1 bag in the corner of the screen.

GO GO GADGET MAUL!!!!

P.S.--Just tried with this new version 3 times and nothing is changing.

Download the version from this page, and then manually make the change that was made in the "bugfix" version; the version on this page here includes other fixes for 3.0.8 that are not present in the "bugfix" version. Open Macaroon_Bars.lua in Notepad or another plain-text editor, and search for (quotes included):

"SecureHandlerStateTemplate,SecureHandlerShowHideTemplate"

It's around line 1601, if your editor shows line numbers. If not, it's the only instance of that in the file, so searching is fine. Replace it with (quotes included):

"SecureHandlerStateTemplate"

You may occasionally get an error message, but all functionality will be present, including stances and other state paging. This is working 100% for me on shaman, druid, hunter, priest, paladin, mage, and warrior.

Maybe I'll PM Cairenn and see if I can't get a fixed version uploaded to this page.

However, it seems that the "Combat" option no longer functions. I had a driver bar setup originally, so that my main bars would be stance'd. I did try creating a new bar that just reacted to combat, but that also fails to appear when fighting.
Combat paging works for me, at least with custom states. I don't use the checkboxes for "Combat", "Stance", etc, so they may indeed be broken. Try checking the "Custom" checkbox and then entering something like:

[nocombat]
[combat]

I did an analysis of my requirements which you may find interesting. I use Dominos for my combat actions and (taking off my druid stances) I have six 12 button bars available. I looked in the guide and found that (surprisingly) my hunter had the most spells, around 56 in total. Now my available bars give me 72 buttons - more than enough for all the hunter spells. If you include modifiers you could have 288 actions/macros!
Except that Dominos doesn't come close to Macaroon in terms of flexibility and customization for bar layout and paging. And, 255 characters is nowhere near long enough for me to multiply one button into four for much of my setup. Consider this example from my druid:

If in Cat Form and Alt key is down, cast Ferocious Bite; otherwise...
if in Cat Form and Ctrl key is down, cast Savage Roar; otherwise...
if in Cat Form and Shift key is down, cast Main; otherwise...
if in Cat Form, cast Rip; otherwise...
if in Dire Bear Form and Alt key is down, cast Challenging Roar, otherwise...
if in Dire Bear Form, cast Growl, otherwise...
if Alt key is down, cast Starfire, otherwise...
cast Moonfire.

I also did not back up my WTF folder. Thankfully I have a second machine that had not even gotten the WoW patch yet. Using previous comments I was able to restore most functionality by re-installing the .28 version and modifying the .lua file.

However, it seems that the "Combat" option no longer functions. I had a driver bar setup originally, so that my main bars would be stance'd. I did try creating a new bar that just reacted to combat, but that also fails to appear when fighting.

The ability to have bars only show up in combat was my favorite feature, as I have several bars show up near the center of my screen for combat, as I am a "clicker" vs a keybind user. Has anyone managed to get this functionality working? Note - I am completely NOT a programmer >.<

I hope this is updated. I effed up and didn't back up my WoW folder.

This is seriously the best bar mod out there, I feel lost without it. Even the keybind functions were seriously awesome!

In the meantime, can anyone recommend a replacement?

I went back to the addons I had previously - Dominos & Autobar. I did an analysis of my requirements which you may find interesting. I use Dominos for my combat actions and (taking off my druid stances) I have six 12 button bars available. I looked in the guide and found that (surprisingly) my hunter had the most spells, around 56 in total. Now my available bars give me 72 buttons - more than enough for all the hunter spells. If you include modifiers you could have 288 actions/macros!

I use Autobar for non-direct combat actions - bandages, food, drink, professions etc. as I like the fact that it automatically gathers items and grades them for you, e.g. bandages.

I don't think memory is a big problem - Autobar and Dominos take up about 3.5 Mb as opposed to Macaroon's 1.5 Mb (my total addon usage is about 50 Mb.)

So the main thing I might miss about Macaroon is number and size of macros, although you can write macros for Autobar that are not included in the Blizz total. Having said that I currently have 8 general macros and a max of 6 char specific ones, most of whom are less than 100 chars. My chars are lvl 30-35 so that might change.

I was hoping Macaroon would replace Dominos and Autobar but perhaps it was 'a bridge too far'! Cheers!

This fix ist old and do not work in every case. All in all, it is great, that the author has bring this out, but it do not help everyone.

I try out Bartender, and I need two hours to learn, that this addon needs three of the ten bars to hold the buttons for my warrior-stance-bar. So I have now 6 bars with 12 buttons for my one - MAUL WHERE ARE YOU!!!!
