BlizzBugsSuck

After every patch there are often a variety of bugs that crop up in the WoW UI. Many of them go largely unnoticed by users. AddOn authors have often made small addons to fix these problems. This addon intends to create a single installation for users that include whatever fixes the community can come up with for UI problems. As new issues and workarounds are discovered they will be added. As old issues get fixed they will be removed. Users benefit by having a single addon they can just keep updated to get the fixes. Blizzard benefits by having a single addon to look for our workarounds to their problems and hopefully things get fixed sooner.

Current fixes include:

  • Fix a lua error when scrolling the in-game Addon list
  • Fix the addon list sometimes incorrectly toggling the enable state of addons for other characters
  • Fix the missing bonus area effects on the garrison shipyard map in non-English locales.
  • Fix the pet journal team buttons not being clickable to link a pet into chat.
  • Fix the Interface Options window not always opening to the requested addon's options panel.
  • Fix taint caused by the Chat Frames use of UIFrameFlash (LibChatAnims).
  • Fix the German localization using a whole word for the one-letter "day" abbreviation.

Previous fixes have included:

  • Fix category labels in the Interface Options and other windows wrapping and overlapping. (Fixed in 6.2.2)
  • Fix the German localization using the same word for the "Uncommon" and "Rare" item qualities. (Fixed in 6.1)
  • Fix the error in Traditonal Chinese clients that occurs inwhen the guild UI is first loaded. (Fixed in 6.1)
  • Fix the DEATH popup showing when reloading the UI even if you aren't dead. (Fixed in 5.4)
  • Fix reagent buttons in the TradeSkillUI not providing links when shift-clicked. (Fixed in 5.3)
  • Fix the PlayerTalentFame is nil error with the GlyphUI. (Fixed in 5.2)
  • Fix the poiButton error when opening the the Map. (Fixed in 5.0.4, possibly earlier)
  • Fix whisper menu options and chat links for cross-realm players in LFR and BGs. (Fixed in 5.0.4, possibly earlier)
  • Block the exploit that allows AddOns from getting your Real Name from the Real ID system. (Hotfixed on July 10th, 2010. BNSendWhisper now shows character name when whispering yourself.)
  • Fix the buttons for DropDown Menu items being behind the background, making it impossible to click them (only happens to submenus and usually only for ones with a large number of menu items). (Fixed by 4.0.1)
  • Fix for minimap ping not updating as you move making the ping appear to move locations as you move. (Fixed by 4.0.1)

Criteria for inclusion of a fix:

  • Be identifiable as a bug as opposed to an intentional design. We will use the FrameXML source code to help determine this and the behavior of the UI to help determine Blizzard's intentions.
  • Be transparent for users and not break any other UI element or addon (exception being malicious addons taking advantage of Blizzard UI bugs).
  • Not require configuration options. If it's something some people might not want, it's not a candidate for inclusion.

The purpose of these criteria is to limit the fixes to things that everyone universally will want.

    you should add the cogfix to this. it is after all the definition of a serious UI bug with 1 line tooltips inside instances. which is exacty what fix is, just check for isininstance and if true then disable 1 line tooltips.

    @Freydis88 I found I could get links working again when I made sure the ChatFrame was not set to "Noninteractive". Try that.

    @Freydis88, There's insufficient traceback in that for me to even begin trying to figure out what addon is causing that.

    @Shefki: Thanks... actually I hoped, there would be a fix, that helped me get rid of that bug without an addon update, since the author seems to have abandoned it. I keep on getting this message in BugSack: ["message"] = "Interface\\FrameXML\\UIParent.lua:2567: attempt to compare nil with number:\n\nLocals:|r\n\n ---", ["type"] = "error", ["time"] = "2010/07/14 00:26:46", ["session"] = 20, ["counter"] = 22438, }, -- [19] Do you know by any chance which addon may be causing this? Greetings and thanks, Freydis EDIT: Advanced Tradeskill Window has NOT been abandoned, as I found out...

    @Freydis88, the addon should be updated to fix that. It's not really a Blizzard bug that they changed the API when doing a massive overhaul of the chat system.

    Since the latest patch, it is not possible to link items or recipes to the chat anymore, when running certain addons, for example Advanced Tradeskill Window. http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/advanced-trade-skill-window/

    Is it possible to fix this with BlizzBugsSuck?

    @Citlalin, Messaged the author to ask for permission to merge his code.

    i did report it on bug report forums when i discovered it. maybe they took it serously even though they didn't reply? i'll disable addon on my end and see if i can reproduce it anymore.

    as for shadowed's fix. I agree that clearning it on zoning, or on combat end etc isn't good for users. he clears it pretty accessively wihch does clear it when you don't need to and has adverse effects. but if you ONLY clear it when it's simply not working after UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED from player, at this point i don't think anyone would be upset they cleared it if they want to recieve any future combat events. otherwise, what's the point of a combat filter or addon that uses cache like HitsMode5 if there will be no new items added to cache or combat log at all. It does seem like a moot point to try not to break addons or users settings if those settings/addons themselves are rendered useless by the bug (preserving the last fight by giving up any log on next one, an eye for an eye either way. Just picking your poisen, do you want the last fight, or the current/next one). I just suggest you don't go to extreme of clearing it for "good measure" approach like what shadow does on zone change etc.  But at same time i see your point too. If the issue is even debatable then it isn't 100% to liking of everyone, which is what you want. But if it was in blizzbugssuck, and addon gains more and more momentum, it would be more presssing for blizzard to fix such an old and crappy bug ;)
