LUI v3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.8.3
by: loui, Siku

LUI v3.8.3 - Patch 5.4.8

If you are doing a new install and you see that the frames are overlapping, or unaligned, you need to move the frames yourself:
Chat (BottomLeft): Go over it and right click on "General" tab of the chat frame, click Unlock Window and drag the tab around until you have the frame in a position you like.
Omen (MiddleLeft): Type "/omen config" (without quotes) and uncheck Lock Omen, drag it around, once you're done, check Lock Omen again.
Recount (MiddleRight) Type "/recount config" (without quotes) and go to Window and uncheck Lock Window. Move it around, and lock it back up when you're done. You're free to re-enable the Report, File, Config icons if you want.
Raid (BottomRight): Type "/lui", go in Unitframes, and unlock them. Then move the lone raid frame with your name around.

- For technical support please go to the LUI Website
- Please Read the Latest Changelogs before asking questions.

Changelogs for Version 3.7 and up are viewable on the LUI Website

LUI v3.7
Work for 5.0.4
Updated to r507

LUI v3.6.8

LUI v3.6.6
- Fixed additional bugs from 3.6.5

LUI v3.6.5

LUI v3.6.4Beta

LUI v3.6.4

LUI v3.6.1
3.6 Announcement, Read it:

3.6.1 Changelog:

LUI v3.5.5

LUI v3.5.3

LUI v3.5.2

UI Elements:
- New texture for the infotext bar at the top. This one is much much larger. There should be no differences for people using small resolutions (up to 1680x1050) and should come as a nice feature for people using larger ones (1920x1020) or even have dual/triple monitor setups.
- You can now attach the Raid Texture Panel to Blizzard's default raid frames by using the dropdown menu.

- Vengeance has been updated again.
- Added Firelands Stuff to Raid Debuffs Icons, if you are using the LUI raid frames instead of Grid.
- Fixed a few issues with Health and Power Updates.
- If a boss has an Alternate Power, it will be displayed in place of the power bar. An example would be Onyxia and her Electrical Charge bar.
- Fixed some issues with the Reputation and Experience bars.
- Fixed issues when petframe was disabled.
- Added some more options concerning Party Frame Visibility

- Fixed the faction logo for BattleNet Friends. So now you can tell your friends are being traitors and will be marked with traitorous logos next to their opposite-faction characters.

- Fixed a few comat issues.

- Potentially fixed an error that would appear on extremely rare cases, and would end up disappearing after the ui is reloaded. Written as "potentially" due to the extremely rare and probably unreproducible nature of said error.

Extra Modules:
- There was a screw up in the 3.5.1 release that caused the Interrupt and Merchant module (after following instructions) to still not work. This has been fixed.
- Along the lines, the Merchant module has been rewritten to fixes any errors that caused its exclusion in the first place.
- Some options of the Merchant module (such as the Item Quality) may have been reset as a result of this.
- Meh

LUI v3.5.1

Addon Support:
- Added fix for Recount having huge font unless modified. You no longer need to modify Recount to have LUI's intended font size.
- You can now choose the font size you want for Recount under the options - General > Addons

- Fixed an issue with the unitframes when they were disabled.
- The Player XP and Rep Bar should now come in front of the Health/Mana Text when mouse is hovered.
- Fixed an issue with Unitframes Layouts causing havoc under certain situations
- The Swing Timer and Vengeance Bars have been updated.

- Fixed an issue related to fonts that appeared under certain situations.
- Updated to 4.2's Combat Log Event to fix lag during combat.
- Fixed an issue with the Friends infotext not displaying in 4.2.

- There is a new button on the micromenu for the Encounter Journal, you can find it marked with a skull, next to the dungeon finder button.
- Fixed an issue with the talent point reminder where it wasn't the intended color if you selected to use a white colored micromenu.

- Sorted the options menu so everything should be easier to find, including clicking on the white Module section to easily enable/disable certain modules within LUI

Extra Modules:
- Remove the Merchant extra module from the basic package because it is not handled by anyone on the dev team, and it is causing quite a few errors to many people.
- For LUI to load extra modules, you need to move the Extras.Xml file out of the modules folder (next to the LUI.xml), this was done to prevent your Extras.xml file from being overwritten if you were to update LUI.
- For those who had a working Merchant module and want to continue using them, just move the Extras.xml file out of the modules folder.

LUI v3.5

The LUI Unitframe is now embed with the LUI addon, no more troubles with oUF not being loaded on first install, bugging the whole process. (Somehow, i think someone will still manage it)
The Unitframes have been improved alot in terms of performance, and lots of bugs were fixed.
Options have been added to Import and Export new unitframes setups, as well as being able to switch between various setups without much hassle! Import a layout, or exporting one, may or may not cause severe lag.
Added an Alternative Power Bar, used by Blizzard for many raiding encounters.
Arena Frames were added, which include frames for your opponents, their pets and their targets.
Added Heal Predictions.
BossTarget Frames added, but disabled by default.
New Raid Frames have been added, in case you do not wish to use Grid or similar addons. Take note those are somewhat experimental for now.
Unitframes now uses the same raid icons textures as the nameplates, because those are 20% cooler.


DataText has been improved alot. Efficiency and performance went up to eleven.
Now have two more info text bars. Along with having things in the Top Left and Top Right, you can now have datatexts in the Bottom left and Bottom Right.
Removed most of the UI Reloads required when enabling / disabling things.
Most option changes are now instantaneous.
New entries: Currency, DualSpec and Instance Info datatexts.
Added option to choose if you want infotext to work during combat or not.
Added option to display Home or World Latency in the bar, or both.
Added option to display your combined gold on the server, or just the current toon's gold.
Left-Clicking on the Gold will now switch between server gold and toon gold. Instead of opening the bags.
Fixed the infamous INVITE PENDING issue with the calendar...again. Blame Blizzard for having buggy API, not us.


Fixed some other bugs that prevented the bags or bank from correctly updating.
Added the Sort Button fix.


Blizzard Errors not disabled by default anymore. This should reduce confusion by alot.
Updated the ColorPicker to Ace3, no more Ace2 libraries!
Updated and Improved the AutoAccept Invites function.
Added the Merchant and Hix_Interrupter into the main UI. Mostly because of the cooked version in fact. Their original authors will still have to update them.

Giving it a try

I just thought I would give this a try, but is it intended that the background texture for the raid frames is actually on top of the raid frames and not behind?

I made a video on how to install this and set your UI up completely fresh. Check it out and let me know what you guys think and I hope it helps when trying to install this awesome UI pack.

Wow I somehow missed that V4 is in the works! I'm totally excited now. ;-) Don't let naysayers get you down, there are a LOT of people out there that love and appreciate LUI. I've used it off and on (I have to switch to other UIs sometimes due to the class I play or just out of random ADD, lol) - and I personally LOVE FE. I used it for quiet a while outside of LUI too. Nothing really beats it.

Hang in there and keep up the awesome work!

For sha, it was just a little movable window that says corruption and it lists everyones corruption in taht window. It looks like a standard tooltip. Popped up just above my unit frames when i first went in after having LUI installed

I just have a quick question about the sidebars, they have options to move them vertically and Horizontally, but when I move those sliders, nothing happens, only the Scale slider seems to have any effect. I am trying to get the right side bars to not overlap the minimap and to come a bit lower on the screen...any reason for this? I have reinstalled multiple times with interface and wtf folder wipes.

More than one bars for Druid

I recently came across this add on and I love it. But it lack something I need. I play with two rows of seven buttons. But I noticed that I cannot set both rows to specific Druid form but only the main bar.

I'm requesting the ability an addition of form specific bars to the 2-6 action bars. Would be 6 out of 5 stars addon if this happened.

Many thanks!

EDIT: Do this addon disable the loss of control alert in middle of the screen? If so, how can I enable it again?

I decided to take another look at LUI (as I used to love it) thinking they'd have implemented their own buff bars or integrated an alternative by now but no. Meaning the only option is to use an alternative that just won't fit with the UI in the same way. That is such a damn shame.

Unless that is ever fixed (and if they haven't fixed it by now then they never will) then I guess LUI is an almost dead project, merely a shadow of what it used to be.
The funny thing is that ForteXorcist still works perfectly fine for me, using it as buff bars. Maybe something else is broken but i havent had issues with Forte yet, even a year after it's release.
Another thing to note is that i'm currently only maintaining V3 (along with the wonderful help of Mule/kitkeh) and any of the very few coding time i get is spent on V4 which is entirely rewritten from the grounds up because i feel the current code has been dragging on for so long, by so many different devs (Loui, Me, Hix, Zista, Thaly, Darkruler, Mule, Shandrela, and i'm probably missing a few). It's getting hard to maintain.
I'm also trying to be careful to include tools and a certain structure to faciliate the inclusion and support of new addons. Both from a dev standpoint and a user standpoint, such as the ability to have as many panels as you want or more control over colors so that they match the rest of the UI.
It's not actually an easy task, i said in the past i would deliver it for MoP, but then the death of my guild at the time caused me to burn out of WoW, followed by real life running over me like a truck, i wasn't able to achieve it but i will do my best this time around.
