Known issues
FAQ:
Q) Will PlateBuffs work on mobs?
A) Yes. but since mobs can share the same name you'll need to target or mouseover the nameplate so PlateBuffs can determine which nameplate belongs to what mob. Once that nameplate disappears from the screen and reappears you'll need to mouseover/target again.
Q) What's the question mark for?
A) It can mean 2 things. 1) We don't know what mob that nameplate belongs to, 2) We don't know what spells are on that mob/player. In both cases you need to target/mouseover the nameplate.
Q) Will PB work with non default nameplates?
A) PB should work with Tidy Plates, Aloft, dNameplates and caelNameplates. PB may or may not work with other nameplate addons.
Q) Can I have specific buff options?
A) Yes. Open PlateBuff's options (/pb) and go to the Specific Spells menu. In there you can add spells and choose always/mine/never show, icon size and cooldown text size. Some spells are added by default to have large icons.
Q) Why do spells blink?
A) Spells will blink if there's less then 20% of the time remaining.
Q) Can you add a clockwise cooldown overlay to the spell icons?
A) Unfortunately the clock cooldown doesn't work well on frames that are constantly moving around the screen. It tends to disappear while the frame's moving and only appear when the icon's perfectly still. So as soon as you move, they move or your camera moves (including breathing up and down motion) the overlay disappears. Sorry.
Q) What do all these spells in the Specific Spells list do?
A) If you're unfamiliar on what spells do what effects, enable the Add Spell Description option on the main screen. That will add a spell icon and spell description to each of the spells. When enabled, PlateBuffs' memory usage will go up around 2MB (memory usage only impacts login/load time, not FPS).
Q) How do I turn off all buffs except those on my Specific Spells list?
A) In PlateBuffs' options, set both "Show Buffs" and "Show Debuffs" to none.

kind of.
when i say whitelist i mean: only show spells i want to see from other players/classes, and not all their spells.(like seeing trauma from a warrior but not Rend nor Corruption...)
I could then 'whitelist' all i need without beeing troubled by debuffs i dont need to know about.
simple concepts become un-understandable once i explain them ...

In the options window, go to the Specific Spells menu and add Trauma. You'll then see options specific to that spell to Always Show, Never Show, or Mine Only as well as icon/text size.

disable all debuffs, then add all debuff you do want to show by adding them to the specific spells list and select always show. This is a whitelist.
Set the Show Debuffs option to 'None'. Tada a white list.

Great addon !

Is it possible to have a pet nameplate with buff/debuffs ?
I'd like to watch "Mend Pet" on my pet, and also see if there is any debuff on it.

Try adding Mend Pet to the Specific Spells list. Also enable friendly pet nameplates. I forget where in Blizzard's options that is.

No window appears when you type /pb? What about if you go into the blizzard interface options?
[Esc] > Interface > Addons tab > PlateBuffs.

Love this addon

Unfortunately it seems to get very choppy/laggy in high volume areas as of late. Not sure reason and I know I don't speak just for myself. I've seen many similar issues from other players.

Cyprias,

I'd like to make an addon that does nothing but color the original nameplate based on the player class.

Can you help me or add this functionality to your addon?

Thanks very much.

I think the default nameplates can already do that for PvP flagged enemy players. I'm guessing you mean you want class colour shown for mobs too?
Unfortunately I haven't been playing WoW for the past 4 months and can't work on such a project.

The default nameplate is always red. There's no option to color it :/
I'd like it to be colored based on the player's class. No change on mobs.
By looking at some addons it seems pretty easy to do once you know the frame names, etc.

Unless Blizzard removed it in Cataclysm, there should be a option to enable class colours on PvP flagged enemy players. You need to be in a pvp flagged zone to see the colours.

It probably would be easy. Keep a list of names and their class. Then watch for nameplates and check if the nameplate's name is in your list, if so colour the bar. /shrug
