    Is there any option to unlock the position so I can place it where ever I want on the screen?

  • #68

    Type '/cdb' then go to Bar settings > Default (or what ever bar you want to move) and click 'Show Anchor' you now can drag and drop the anchor to its new position

    Hi there..

    I cant find any buttoms at minimap to move this addon around at my screen.
    Its making me crazy!

    Hello! I love your addons and I have a Suggestion. When cast 4 spells the cooldownbar goes like that "1 - 2 - 3 - 4 " When the 2º cooldown end the bar goes to " 1 - 3 - 4 " (the 3º spell take place over 2º on the cast bar... When this happen can you make the bar goes to " 1 - Empty Slot - 3 - 4"?
    And if a new spell comes it take place of a Empty Slot like this " 1 - 5 - 3 - 4 "?

    And another thing... You could put a Time before the Button desapears after the cooldown. Like (1 seg, 2 seg).

    And 1 last thing... When you press the hotkey and the cooldown isnt over the icon could blink like the original bar.

    Thanks! And Good Job!

    thanks for updating this, i used to use it years ago but had to stop because it stopped working for what i used it for after some patches

  • #63

    Love this addon, it does what I used to use DoTimer for!

    MY only pet peeve is the announcements bar, I read in the comments further down theres an option to disable it, but in the current build that option seems to be missing. Is there any way I can disable the announcements? Or am I jsut missing something?

    Hi, I wanna say i love this addon and keep up the good work.

    I just got back into wow after a few weeks off and it seem like the latest update removed the blackmail list of individual skill. Either that or i'm looking at the wrong place to find it. Oh yeah one more thing, is there a way to make the button inverted? like say i want the button to show up when ever my frost bomb or lava burst is off cooldown.

    Thanks and good work.

    Heya Net,

    Just went through and tried testing out the addon again and noticed a few things.  Was gonna say there wasnt a list for items but see you've already said that was coming soon.  Havent tested thoroughly across other specs but on my enhance, noticed that when I used stormstrike it displayed primal strike on cd as well, since they share a cd, but saw no option to deslect to not show primal strike. As well, when using the option to have cds grow from center there are times when it will bug out and show the icons up and to the right of the anchor. 

    Overall, very minor things and thanks again for working so hard on the addon, its appreciated. =)

    Is there a way to set it up so it doenst show useless cooldowns, for example an item that transforms me to an undead? not interested in tracking that

  • #58

    Hello Isish,

    there is a plan to add an option to hide item cooldowns as it is for spell cooldowns, but this feature is not yet done. I hope i'll get some time to work again on CDB next week, after i'm finally moved to my new home.

  • #60

    it took a bit longer but 3.0.15 supports item cooldown hide

  • #55

    Requested feature:

    Tracking the 4pc set bonus from the druid PvP gear. (Ravage!)

    (which is what I was originally looking for a tracker for)

    Other then that, a great addon. 

  • #56

    Sorry but currently there is no Plan for hidden Cooldowns.


  • #51

    First off, love your addon, its just what I've been looking for! 

    One thing though: The Colossus Smash Cooldown track doesn't work very well, because of Sudden Death (" Your melee hits have a 20% chance of resetting the cooldown on your colossus smash"). 

  • #52

    What exaclty do you mean with "doesn't work very well"? keeps the button counting down even if cd is ready due to sudden death proc?
