You could try using DataBroker addons. You will need a DataBroker "container" like Bazooka, NinjaPanel or ChocolateBar.

But - one must ask - why is the reason you are seeking a replacement? To my knowledge Fubar still works fine, and you can host DataBroker plugins just fine.

I use ChocolateBar and DataBroker plugins myself, because I like to make the bars smaller and float them on the screen.

I tried Bazooka and ended up not caring much for it. Chocolatebar seems to work really good for me. Give the ones Flarin suggested a try as I'm sure you'll like one of them.

Titanpanel already supports LDB addons for a very long time besides their own Titan specific plugins.

Does Titan predate Telo's Infobar?

Probably. Titan Panel was the second addon I ever installed (the first being some raid frame addon that predated CTRA).

Nope, Telo's was out first. But only by a matter of a couple days.

I miss http://www.wowinterface.com/download...InfoPanel.html - Aezay's addons were awesome - and his in game configurations were great.

I used this for the longest time until I needed more information and support for it started to die off.

Docking Station is still my favorite LDB display addon by a long shot. Supremely configurable and easy to setup you can fairly easily get all your LDB 'applets' setup where you want, and how you want anywhere in your UI.

But it hasn't been updated in a year though - is it throwing errors in 4.3?

Nope. I probably would have mentioned that in recommending it myself.

Well, Titan Panel is not a LDB display mod like the rest of the non-FuBar mods mentioned here. It does not support LDB mods natively. It just "converts" LDB plugins you install into a native format so it can display them similar to how the old Broker2FuBar did it for FuBar. It added this conversion ability when LDB plugins became ubiquitous.

With that comes overhead. More overhead when you include the native TitanPanel plugins (most all of which have LDB equivalents) that you personally may or may not want to use. Also, some LDB plugins may not display on it as well as you may get on a real LDB display mod. Like some people above, am not a fan of Titan sticking with their old display format and using a conversion process for LDB mods, instead of completely switching to LDB.

Recommendation for FuBar replacement: get a real LDB display mod and just the plugins you actually want to use with it. FuBar is totally obsolete & deprecated, won't be updated further & uses custom libraries that will never be updated (and use a fair bit of CPU time).

Some of the replacement suggestions above are great. For a bar-type display like FuBar was, Bazooka (my fav of this type), DockingStation or (if you want to go minimalistic) NinjaPanel are all good options.

For a "block" type LDB display mod (puts the mod feeds in their own resizable "blocks"), there is StatBlockCore (what I use), Fortress & Blockoland, among others.

And ButtonBin (sort of a customizable cross between a bar & block type display) and many others. So lots of choice for a real LDB display mod.

The next thing is the plugins. Best place to start is on WoWi here. Curse is another site for them. And finally WowAce is one of the "developer" sites of Curse, where you may find updated versions & unreleased plugins not on the main site yet.

If you have searched & searched and not found a replacement for one of your favorite old FuBar plugins yet that amazingly still works in WoW 4.3, ask here. If you stump the forum members here (highly unlikely), use FuBar2Broker to get that old plugin showing on a LDB display.
