    Having a problem with Skillet and Glyphs/Enchanting.

    I cannot get the blue icon to display in my crafting prompt to show how many of each I have in the AH. This works fine in JC but not in Skillet. Anything that I am doing wrong?

    I have the following mods that handle the AH:

    Auctioneer Auctionator Skillet

    Various "trade skill" or "item info" addons have published interfaces which can be used to extract the information they collect. Skillet uses the "Plugins" button as one way to interact with these other addons. Currently, Skillet has code for AckisRecipeList, Auctioneer, and TradeSkillInfo. In addition, more integrated code for Lil Sparky's Workshop is still included even though LSW appears to be abandoned.

    If you install one (or all) of these addons, the "Plugins" button will do something.

    What is the 'Plugins" button in the top left corner for? Clicking it doesn't seem to do anything. Is this for possible plugins for Skillet in the future?

    Thanks :)

    My changes have been incorporated into the main branch. WoWInterface will follow Curse which will follow WoWAce.

  • Avatar of bsmorgan bsmorgan Feb 18, 2014 at 23:47 UTC - 0 likes

    I have been implementing my own enhancement tickets (259 and 276). I'd be happy to have my changes merged into the mainstream code. Send me a PM if you are interested so we can work out the details.

    In the meantime, I've posted my 2.45+ at WowInterface. The main Skillet version over there is way out of date but it was the easiest place for me to post my version.

    Item Difficulty bar is gone

    It is because of using an old version of LibPeriodicTable-3.1. Please update from r436 to r437 or later.

    The file "Interface\Addons\Skillet\Libs\LibPeriodicTable-3.1\LibPeriodicTable-3.1-TradeskillLevels\LibPeriodicTable-3.1-TradeskillLevels.lua" of r436 has no data in it.

    Blizzard does not separate engineering pets from other categories and there does not seem to be any way to filter on pets, so I would like to have a group that shows only pets that I can create. I can't figure out how to make a custom group that shows this. I can select the pets from the flat list and if I right click I can create a new group from selected, but nothing seems to happen at that point. No way to name a group, no way to choose it. I must be missing something but I can't figure this out.
