EBB provides groups of statusbar style indicators to show (de)buffs currently affecting your char or some other units (currently focus, pet and target). For the player, it can also show indicators for temporary enchants place on it's weapons.

Due to changes Blizzard made with WoW 4.x it's no longer possible to cancel buffs without the use of secure frames. Currently EBB limits canceling of buffs to out-of-fight since using SecureAuraHeader would have required a major code restructuring. This will be coming in a later version.

Version 2.x is a total recode based on the Ace2 framework which became necessary in order to support some of the longtime wanted and suggested features.
It's now possible to show different groups of bars which can be configured in many ways. Each group can be assigned an individual look and filter settings.
EBB can be configured via a dropdown menu which is accessible via chat (/ebb config), FuBar plugin or (for the group settings) by right clicking the groups anchor.
After setting up a group, its anchor can be hidden by alt-left clicking a bar or the anchor itself in order to lock the group in place.

In order to get additional bar textures and fonts for EBB simply install SharedMedia which is available for download under http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/sharedmedia.aspx

There is no way to distinguish between buffs cast by yourself and those cast by others. The only thing you could do would be to create new groups and use white-/blacklist filters to only show or hide those buffs you can cast yourself.

WRT a menu for setting up all groups at once this is something that is planned but I'm still looking into how to do it in a good way.

Just switched to this after using Buffalo for some time, and I'm loving it. Much clearer, especially when playing a paladin or class with many buffs.

I have two suggestions:

1. Ability to filter buffs that I cast and ones which other players cast. Colour-coding these should help to categorize and ultimately present a layout easier on the eyes.
2. Ability to configure all groups' size, texture, etc. through one menu and not have to do it individually.

The buffs still showing up isn't EBB's bug but caused by another addon that forces them to be shown again. Sorry :/

@hett: I'll try to look into that. At least I have a small clue now

Hi here. First, thanks for this great mod. It is really excellent.

I have a quite annoying bug. The default blizzard buff frame still appear when using your mod. I'm also using x-perl in parallel, perhaps it's comming from this.

I'e seen already the same questions preciously but not the answer. Thanks in sdvance.

Elkano, I followed your advice and deleted my saved variables and such.

I've figured out the problem, however. It occurs whenever I hide the buff icons.

Saving Profiles Option?

I've noticed that all my characters share the same settings. Is there any way to save different settings for them?

I have a group for self buffs to make it easier to see what I need to refresh. On my mage I put in mage armor, AI, etc. I'd like to be able to have different buffs in that group depending on which character I'm on.

A single profile per character would work, but it would be awesome if you could save/load profiles on a group-by-group basis .

Buff Bars Above Self and target

Is there any way to disable (or just move) the bars that show above the character frame?

For example, when I cast barkskin on my Druid, a bar pops up but I cannot figure out how to move or disable it...

I have this exact same problem, and for now have been resorting to using the older version that displays the buff timers as %d in the meantime. I'd really like to know the fix for this as well - this is one of my favorite addons and the newer version is gorgeous - I just can't get it to stop bugging out and getting "stuck". If I enable/disable standby it tends to fix it temporarily, but only for a matter of minutes before it sticks again.

Cheers all the same Elkano, great mod.

I seem to be having an issue with this addon which is a shame because ever since I found this addon it has been a favorite of mine.

When ever my weapon gain a temporary buff such as a mana oil, Shaman totem weapon buff, poison, or the shaman weapon buffs such as windfury the timers on my addons and their bars bug out. The time no longer ticks away and the bars eventually all go empty even tho the buff bar remains. When ever I gain a new buff or debuff from anything be it a priest tossing me a fort or a trinket proc they are not displayed on my buff bar either. Once I remove the weapon from my character or the effect on the weapon fades all my buffs are displayed accurately until I apply another oil or re-equip the buffed weapon.

I've spoken with others who use this addon and they do not share my issues so if anyone knows of any addons that conflict with this addon or how I may be able to fix this any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've recently just joined the game again and remembered your addon would track curses I threw on monsters from my warlock and buffs on party/raid members when I were playing my paladin.

But to my dissapointment it isen't doing this anymore, have I configured it wrong or will it not do that anymore?

Filling the bar..

Hey. I've been using EBB for as long as I can remember, and only recently I've been having this problem.

I switched to Buffalo for a few weeks, and since switching back to EBB the other day, I've noticed that the buff bars don't quite fill up, even when at maximum duration.

Screenshot: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y16...ebbproblem.jpg

As you can see there, my MOTW and OoC are at full time, but the bars are not. I've tried three different versions of EBB and all were the same.

no, colors are defined per group so if you want a different color, you'll need to create a new group for this kind of buffs.

Changing Color of Timeless Buffs?

Elkano love the mod!

Could you please instruct me how to change the bar color for timeless buffs to something other then the standard blue for timed buffs? I like the auras or timeless buffs to be different.

Is there a way to do this without having to create a new group?

Thanks

No, I dropped them quite a while ago and I will also not allow them to host any updated stuff.
And latest happenings made me even more unwilling to change my mind.
