About CleanUI

Ready for WoD

Feel free to report any issues in the comments.

  • Please do not report LUA errors from other add ons
  • Please do not report curse-client errors
  • Please do not report any WoD Patch problems. I can not help you with these problems. I do not work for Blizzard.
  • If you use this Addon with a 5.4 client version you'll have a lot of problems

Manual Install

If the curse client does not do its job:

  • download and unzip the latest version

    Is there a way to just get the unit frames to replace X/Z-Perl?

  • #532

    no, sorry.

    Re: CleanUI and Masque

    I have the latest "graphics fix" update, and downloaded Masque manually instead of using the Curse client. It still seems like they're not playing well together. Masque seems has no effect over action bars and buffs. 

    Interestingly Masque DOES seem to work with other add-ons. The problem seems to involve CleanUI registering itself with Masque. There is no listing for CleanUI in the Masque addon list. 

    Keep up the good work :-) This is the basis of my user Interface and, by far, my favorite addon!

  • #533

    hi, i'll check this issue.

  • #527


    I feel that the autosell grey items system is not functional when I use the Addon Bagnon.

    Best regards,

  • #534

    auto sell is fixed.

  • #526

    So I've noticed whenever I enter into combat, chat is disabled. Is there anyway I can turn this feature off?

    Re: CleanUI and masque

    I have manually installed both CleanUI and Masque yet the buttons aren't changing.  Probably something simple but I can't figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

  • #522


    i don't know why, but i had to install ButtonFacade, too, to get it work.

  • #525

    Hi. Did you choose some borders in the masque settings? There is another addon called with a special CleanUI layout. My favorite is the grey border...

  • #524

    No still not working even after getting Buttonfacade.  

  • #523

    Ok will try that...thanks for the fast response.
