About Cooldowns

A World of Warcraft add-on that displays numeric cooldown counters on buttons and other icons with cooldowns.

*** Having Problems? ***

Before posting a problem report, please make sure you are using the most recent release and try resetting all Cooldowns settings using the Defaults button in the Interface Configuration window. If your settings got messed up somehow during the recent updates, setting them to defaults may solve the problem. If that doesn't help, and you still don't see cooldown text, try adjusting the pixel width setting to a smaller number (default should be 27). If that doesn't help, post a problem report and make sure to include which other addons you run and any special configuration changes you make so I can try to replicate the problem. Also, if you run an older version because newer ones are not working for you, let me know. Otherwise, until scientists invent the teleporter and I can port to your computer, there isn't much else I can do for you.


Users can set the minimum pixel width for cooldown text display. Cooldown counters will not appear on buttons or other cooldown icons that have a width smaller than the number chosen (except for the quest watch buttons which always show cooldown text). The default is 27 which is between the size of the standard player buff icon and the standard unit frame debuff icon. The standard action button width is 36 pixels. Scaling a cooldown icon using another addon until it is smaller than the selected minimum width will cause the cooldown text to stop displaying on that icon.


Too many cooldown texts all over the place? I made Cooldowns work with any visible cooldown in any addon (bigger than the default width of 27 pixels). To control where cooldown text appears in your UI, check out the Filtering tab in the Cooldowns configuration panel. You will see a list of all the UI frames (frames hold sets of cooldowns) that Cooldowns is aware of and you can uncheck the ones that you don’t want to see cooldown text on. Don’t want to see cooldown text on Bartender4 bar 6? Uncheck BT4Bar6. Don’t want to see text on WeakAuras icons? Uncheck WeakAurasFrame.

Deleting entries from the filter list will NOT block cooldowns on those frames. That will make Cooldowns forget about that frame, but the next time a cooldown is activated on that frame, it will be added to the list again enabling cooldown text on that frame. Delete filter entries when you will not be using those frames anymore such as when abandoning or changing addons. (Leaving filter entries in the list for addons no longer in use isn't really a problem. Doing so will only reduce efficiency very, very slightly.)

Configure colors, fonts, and other options through the Cooldowns interface options panel.

Please see the readme.txt file for a tutorial on how to configure fonts in Cooldowns.

    I take it back, now it seems to be working. Maybe the problem was on Bartender's end and got fixed? In any case, thanks again for this super-handy addon!
  • #443
    Not working for me in 4.0.1., even with out-of-date addons enabled... I would love an update, this is a fantastic addon!
  • #438
    It does work with 4.0.1 but tends to show some random numbers randomly around the screen. Also you can't change fonts anymore...
  • #439
    so I am hoping for Update too as Im not happy with omni cc at all...
  • #440
    Veri pls update for patch 4.0.1
  • #436
    Current version on Cruse works over 4.0.1.

    Y need to make sure that 'load old addons' or "outdated" is enabled.

    Morgora, thank you very much for reporting these errors. I just now, about 5 minutes ago, got this very same error with NO add-ons loaded. I KNEW it was a blizzard bug. I will report it on the bug forums to let them know. Blizzard keeps telling people it's an add-on problem but is is most certainly not.
  • #441
    Glad I could help! My suspicion was the same as yours. But, you know how Blizzard is! Thank you! :)
