    Pictures are not showing up in my unit frames. Any suggestions on how to fix?

  • #548

    Hey, huge fan of this UI. Does mostly everything I need. One bug and one suggestion. 

    1. Bag seems to be a bit buggy with garrison & garrison salvage yard. My garrison hearth has this "lock" on the top left corner, I am unable to select or move that object. Also, this bug seems to apply to salvage crates and items that I get from the crates. Auto sell gray will sell the gray items, and auto sort bag will move the items but I cannot interact (cannot move, select, DE, sell) with the items.

    2. Could you add a feature to repair using guild gold without holding a button? I always forget to hold alt..

    Edit: I forgot to include this. The bag issue is resolved when I disable CleanUI bag while leaving the rest of my addons on. Here's my list of addons, just incase:

    actionbarsaver ; auctionator; autoturnin ; cleanui ; guidelines ; macro toolkit; master plan ; postal ; prat (without high cpuusage) ; skada; dbm

    Thanks. That did the job. 

  • #542

    Just got this addon, really like it a lot! But I can't see party frames, when in a party it looks as if I'm alone. I can talk in party and all that, that's not effected, I just can't see the frames of people in my party. I've tried looking at the settings but I can't find anything that goes with my issue. What's up? Thanks for any help! I'd hate to have to remove it for something small like this, overall love it.

  • #543


    do you use Healbot? Healbot has an option to hide the party frames. CleanUI only 'redesigns' the Blizzard unit frames, but doesn't create new frames or hide them.

    CleanUI does not work properly when unitframes are set to look like raid frames (Blizzard config).

  • #547

    Just an update, it was not that random piece of addon. I'm not sure how to fix it. I'll have to remove it unless there is an addon that is compatable to show the party frames.

  • #546

    Oh I have. I've opened tickets, submited bug reports, been walked through the "troubleshooting" with Blizzard at least twice... still missing those options. I think I found the issue though after sifting through some addons. An old addon I had left something behind that was suppose to do something with the raid frames but it said it did nothing on its own. I disabled it and I'll see if that fixes it. If not then I guess I can either deal with it, I don't heal too much these days, or get an addon for party frames... 

  • #545

    standard blizzard answer: backup yout wtf folder then remove/rename it. Maybe this helps...

  • #544

    I don't use that addon and for whatever reason, I don't actually have the option in my interface to change my frames to look like raid frames, it's a bug I assume but it's been around for me for a while... guess that's probably the problem. *sigh* Thanks for the help.

  • #539

    Party frames keep on appearing during my dungeons when I have the default Blizzard Raid frames activated for 2-5 player parties, and then they overlap each other.  This is highly annoying, and is the only reason I am not enjoying using this UI as much as I want to.

  • #540

    simple workaround: deactivate raidframes for parties. CleanUI actually doesn't support party raidframes. i'll check it.

  • #541

    The reason I prefer using the raid frames over the party frames is that they are class coloured, which makes it easier to select the tank for targetting purposes, and they re also smaller, so take up less screen space.  If you could just add class colours to the party frames that are skinned, just like the health bar of your player character frame (this might be from another addon, I'm not sure), then there will be no need to use the blizz raid frames for parties of 5 people or less.  I've used another UI just a few days ago that actually colours the party names in the class colour, which would also be fine.  I prefer using your UI though over that one, however.  If there are any alternatives to what I have asked for, then please let me know.

    Edit - sorry, I typed all thsi while at work today, and jsut noticed now ingame that the party names are class colour coded :D
