Aggro Indicator & Buff/Debuff Windows

I'm really not digging the agrro indicator. It's a little distracting for me. How do I turn it off?

Same with the Buff/Debuff windows. I preferred the buffs and such being displayed off of the dashboard. How can I turn those off, or must I install the addon for them to disable them?

Wow well im retarded, should pay more attention to the forum the poster posted in, disregard my post :D

For the cooldown bar there are three slash commands of relevance...

/nui hud cooldowns -- turns the entire cooldown bar off
/nui hud cdalert -- turns off the text message alert when a spell is ready to cast
/nui hud cdsound -- turns off the audio alert when a spell is ready

As for the aura bars... as I have posted in a couple of other threads... I will be putting out a plugin for those who prefer the old style buttons. I also bring to your attention the '/nui maxauras {n}' option which can be used to limit how many auras are shown.

EDIT: You may also want to look at the slash commands section at

I tried /nui hud cooldown, but the aggro indicator remains. To be more descriptive, I'm referring to the red/green outline that shows in the cell with the player's animated portrait, health, and mana in the dashboard. That outline that appears when I'm in combat is what is distracting me.

AH... okay... I misunderstood which thing you were talking about.

You're talking about the red/green background color in the unit frames that shows when a unit is taking damage or receiving heals, yes? The command you want to toggle that one on and off is...

/nui showhits

I don't recall what it was that you posted, but all of nUI's users are always welcome to pitch in and comment on any of the forums... if I don't want you to post in a thread or a forum, I'll lock it so you can't ~smile~

I *always* value the community approach to this project.

Thank you very much, that disabled it! You were very helpful! Please be sure to let us all know when we can toggle the Buff/Debuff windows.

As noted in tonight's announcements... I released an optional plugin tonight that reverts your (de)buff displays to the nUI Beta 4 style aura buttons... you'll find them in the Unit Panels section at

Thanks a bunch for the quick turn around on the plugin. As I suspected my wife was reluctant to even try nUI 5 today because of this change. I will get her to try it tomorrow. She worries every day that WoW will get a patch and nUI will stop working. Your continued support is a big big plus for us.

As scott has noted in the latest updates nui is already compatiable with wow 3.1 whenever they finally decide to patch it. For the time i have been using nui he has always managed to keep ahead of the patches instead of waiting for it to break and then fixing it so you should be pretty safe there :D
