I can't even load up the menu or anything, none of the options work for me. I disabled every other addon to see if it was another addon messing with this one and it still did not work.

Per Character Layouts

Since I'm sharing setup tips here is how to set up per character settings, from way back in the past of the comment pages.

Warning this requires some small modifications of the Ion.toc file. For reference when I refer to <wow directory>, I mean where ever you have installed wow. In my case it is c:\WOW, but it will vary depending on where you installed it.

Step 1: make a copy of the <wow directory>\WTF folders. This is if something goes wrong you can restore your previous settings.
Step 2: in a text editor open the <wow directory>\Interface\AddOns\Ion\Ion.toc file.
Step 3: change lines 7 & 8 from
## SavedVariables: IonGDB, IonItemCache
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: IonCDB, IonSpec
to be
## SavedVariables: IonGDB, IonItemCache
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: IonCDB, IonSpec, IonGDB,
and save the file.
Step 4: Start WOW and then log in to every character that you currently have bars set up for. This will save the current layout to that character and keep you from having to recreate the bars layouts from scratch for them.
Step 5: Quit WOW completely
Step 6: in a text editor open the <wow directory>\Interface\AddOns\Ion\Ion.toc file.
Step 7: change line 7 from
## SavedVariables: IonGDB, IonItemCache
to be
## SavedVariables: IonItemCache
Step 8: Restart Wow

Now any changes you make to layout & keybinds will only be for the character they were made on. If you did step 4 every character that you logged in should have the same layout as before, but any new character will be prompted to make new bars. If you want to use the same layout from another character for a new character just copy the Ion.lua file from the old characters' SavedVariables folder to the new characers' folder. You will have to redo the button's but the bar layout will be the same.

Going back I disabled the other files and relogged, and when I did the Extra Action button was gone.

It appears that you need to have the "Ion: Pet Bar" installed and active for the Extra Action button to display.

Try it installing the Pet Bar files and see if the bar appears.

My whole issue is to avoid having that big clunky bar enabled as it works fine when i have blizzard bar on but I am trying to avoid that.
Nope, no default bilzzard bar for me.
Here is my screen shot of the Klaxxi "Master of Puppets" special ability

The patch note are only refering to the default Extra Action button, not the Ion one.

Was using hydro 6 but pt it down to match yours

I am typing /ion create extrabar (Is that the exact correct format)

Edit # 1 - is there some form of additional ion plug in you are using ? I just added in the menu bar addon ant that updated it so now I can create and have a menubar... but no extra action bars, there is a pet one should I try that see if that has it on there ?

And I can confirm that in my version or whatever it seems like the extra action button with Ion is linked to the blizzard bar I even tried another addon but it only seems to show once i do an /ion blizzbar followed by a ui reload, after that if i turn off the blizzbar it goes away and have to do it all over again lol

Thanks for trying to help me!
The extrabar command is not listed a listed command, but it should still work. I assume that it was not ever added to the help text, like it is not added to the config window.

Also could you check and list which version you are using[/quote]

#1 edit - Tried downgrading to your version same thing. And when I type /ion bartypes or whatever doesn't list anything other than action bar...

Weird stuff I really am excited to get this working

Edit #1 - are you using a different verison than the one listed there I have latest seems like no option for extrabar


Edit #2 - yours looks different on the buttons etc, looks like it's an older one ?
I'm believe that I'm using the most latest version of Ion, I'll double check when I get home.. The screenshot I used was from the screen library from the main page and is an older version. I used it just to illustrate where the new bar name would show up.

There is no way to create the Extra Action Bar from the config window, only from the command prompt via the slash command given earlier.

I just looked at my backup folder on Dropbox and I'm using the Hydrogen-5 version. The screenshot I used was from the screen library from the main page and is an older version. I used it just to illustrate where the new bar name would show up.

The name if the bar is irrelevant but type of bar does. The command creates an the extra action bar which is a special type of bar that only has one button available to it. Double check that the Extra Action bar is not showing up in the list of bars. When you create it, is does not have any buttons, so it is hard to see , and can be easily missed.

Doing the steps on a standard action bar will not result in the extra action button appearing.


Shows list where the new bar would show up.

Edit #1 - I was not able to create using /ion create extrabar (no matter how hard i tried or what name i used seems like it just won't go)

I did everything you said on a bar I renamed extra mar (I created it from within the Ion UI) and the text showed up like you said after I highlight and type what you wrote (/ion vis extrabar 0 hide)

Added one button relogged / loaded and tried in strand not showing up... going to test some more anything you can see that I would be doing wrong ?

Thanks



Thanks

So it looks like you are missing the "Extra Button" bar. Here is what you do to get it back

1. Open the Ion Bar Config window: Left click on the ION icon, then right click on a bar.
2. Check to see if you have a "Extra Action Bar 1" listed if so skip to step 7
3. If you do not see that bar type this command: "/ion create extrabar"
4. A new bar should appear, right click on it while still in the Bar Config Mode
5. With the bar selected type this command: "/ion vis extrabar 0 hide"
6. The following should be printed in the chat window:
0: No Extra Bar - Hide
1: Extra Bar - Show
This sets the bar to only show if there is a ability associated with it.
7. With the Ion Bar Config open and the "Extra Action Bar" selected, click on the right arrow to set the button Count to 1.

This should allow you to now use the Extra Action options when available. If the Extra Bar does not hide after leaving the config mode, try reloading/relogging and it should be hidden until active.

I've deleted the Extra Bar that I had and followed the above step. The newly created bar showed up for the Klaxxi "Master of Puppets" ability and I was able to use it just fine. I'll queue up for SotA and see if it works for the bombs also. <Edit> The bombs showed up in the button just fine.

Hope this helps.

So it looks like you are missing the "Extra Button" bar. Here is what you do to get it back

First Make sure that you have the Ion:Pet Bar module installed and turned on. For some reason Ion thinks the Extra action bar is a pet bar and will not display it with out this installed.

1. Open the Ion Bar Config window: Left click on the ION icon, then right click on a bar.
2. Check to see if you have a "Extra Action Bar 1" listed if so skip to step 7
3. If you do not see that bar type this command: "/ion create extrabar"
4. A new bar should appear, right click on it while still in the Bar Config Mode
5. With the bar selected type this command: "/ion vis extrabar 0 hide"
6. The following should be printed in the chat window:
0: No Extra Bar - Hide
1: Extra Bar - Show
This sets the bar to only show if there is a ability associated with it.
7. With the Ion Bar Config open and the "Extra Action Bar" selected, click on the right arrow to set the button Count to 1.

This should allow you to now use the Extra Action options when available. If the Extra Bar does not hide after leaving the config mode, try reloading/relogging and it should be hidden until active.

I've deleted the Extra Bar that I had and followed the above step. The newly created bar showed up for the Klaxxi "Master of Puppets" ability and I was able to use it just fine. I'll queue up for SotA and see if it works for the bombs also. <Edit> The bombs showed up in the button just fine.

Hope this helps.
