Auctionator makes the auction house easier to use, by presenting auction house listings clearly and succinctly, and by eliminating the tedium involved in posting and managing auctions.

Auctionator is designed for casual everyday auction house users.

If you're already a user and have a question, you might find the answer in the Auctionator FAQ.

[REQ] Coalesced page of all items in a given saved searched
When I'm looking for herbs to mill or ore to prospect for my professions I tend to only want the cheapest unit per gold I can find out of a set of specific items. For example if I'm looking to make Ethereal Ink, I have a saved search of all the various Outland herbs. I then scan all of them to find the best prices and purchase those. What I'd like to see is a one-button search this list and display all results kind of page. That way I can see the best deals across a set of items that are equivalent for all intents and purposes.
• #2473
Thanks for all the good work on the addon.

I've got a bit of a feature request if you wouldn't mind considering. I like many have come from Auctioneer looking for something a little less over the top. The one thing that I dearly miss is the price level indicators and the compact auction house listings where you can shade the background (or text) of an item on the auction house based on the percentage of market value. This let's you easily determine at a glance if the current price is above or below the market value and fit more auctions on the screen at a time.

Here's a screenshot if you're not sure what I mean:

http://forums.norganna.org/extensions/InlineImages/image.php?AttachmentID=417

Anyhow, hopefully it's something you might consider for a future enchancement, as it really makes bargains stand out. Thanks for all your efforts.

Cheers.

I like the functionality of the addon, as other auction addons have a lot of bloat and are more complicated to use.

However, I'm running into an issue with selling. Right now, I have Auctionator set to undercut everything by 1 copper, which should place my auction at the top of the list. This occurs sometimes, however the issues I'm having is that at times, even though my Buyout price is the lowest, other sellers appear before me because their bid price is lower.

So is there a way in Auctionator to match or undercut the bid price?
• #2470
Ygrayne,

Version 2.7.2 fixes this.

Turns out that this was a problem with the way that configuration options are saved. This was probably the core of the problem all along. Auctionator settings were getting corrupted and in at least one case a setting was getting set to "nil", resulting in the error below.

Thanks again for the bug report.

A new message started appearing in my general chat when i cancel an auction:

Atr_CancelSelection_OnClick
Auction cancelled for [Flask of Pure Mojo]x5

How do I turn this off or move it to a custom tab?
• #2469

Oops. That's a debugging message I left in by mistake. It'll be fixed in the next version.
• #2463

Ygrayne ,

Thanks for helping with this.

I'm thinking you might have a corrupt database file. Go into:

World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\YOURACCOUNTHAME\SavedVariables and delete the auctionator.lua file. Then see if the problem still occurs.

Also no need to post the really long error messages.

Zirco, right, that did the trick, all seems up-and-running again. I guess I lost my shopping lists for good, though, huh? ^^ -- Thanks, Y.
• #2466

Actually there's an easier way. If you still have your old WTF file, shut down WoW, return it to the appropriate folder, start WoW and once you're in type:

/atr clear fullscandb

in the console. That should clear our the database without affecting any of your other configuration data. Sorry, forgot that was in there.

- Zirco
• #2465
If you're comfortable editing the file, you can copy you old shopping list data out of the old WTF file (assuming it's still in your Recycle Bin) and paste it into the appropriate place in the new WTF file. Make sure to exit WoW first though.
• #2467
Worked like a charm, ty! ^^
• #2462
Version 2.7.1 is now available.

Let me know if it does or doesn't address the issues folks have been running into. If you still have a problem, please let me know if the problem occurs when Auctionator is the only add-on enabled.
