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 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).
  • The translation for "Uncommon" as an item quality in the German locale is the same as the translation for "Rare". Fixed by setting it to use the same translation as the "Uncommon" battle pet quality.
  • The translation for the one-letter "day" abbreviation in the German locale is incorrectly using a whole word. Fixed by setting it back to a single letter.

Previous fixes have included:

  • 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.
