Elkano's BuffBars  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

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

Is there any way to reset the position of the bars? I loaded into the game today after 2.4.1 installed and the bars are completely off my screen

Move the LUA files to the desktop, then see if new ones work. The only way to "save" your settings if that works, is to attempt to paste lines in from the old file. But thats a crap shoot as to how well that will work, and may cause other problems. I've tried that approach and just wasted more time in trying to avoid the inevitable restart from scratch.

Honestly, the least amount of time will be to just redo your settings, if the fresh new LUA files do resolve the issue. But definately just move them to a safe backup folder first and try that.

My WAU updater has been updating it, and my EBB .toc file says 20400, so I assume that the files.wowace.com version is updated for 2.4 as well. I don't know why Elkano hasn't updated it here, since his addon's info link from WAU points to his WoWI portal here.

I went back till November but could not find such type of bug report, though it seems to be a common one.... but if I missed it, please do not be too strict.

My Problem: Hovering over the Icons, the tool tip is not showing up. To be more precise, a grey empty square appears without text. I disabled all mods except Elkano, but this had no efffect. I installed "shared media" but no effect.

I am a bit reluctant to delete any "saved variables" or whatsoever, because I am afraid that my Elkano's settings will disappear ... and boy it really took me some time to set them. In case you propose to delete such stuff, any way to save my settings before ?

Thanx ...

As I have said before for whatever reason when my poison or WF runs out on my weapon the bar that has the buff extends off my screen and this is very annoying.

LibSharedMedia-3.0 doesn't fech the textures registered to older versions of the library by design.
You most likely run an outdated version of SharedMedia, use the one linked in the addon's description.

since patch 2.4, i am continually having to do

/reload ui

to get all the buff bars displaying on my screen, otherwise they dont refresh, and sometimes dont appear at all.

before patch 2.4 your mod worked perfectly, any suggestions?

maybe 2.4 affected something?

thanks, i love your mod please help.
