  • I stopped using HideRaidFrame, but the Raid Frames (and related Blizzard options panel) aren't coming back anymore!
/run for _, v in ipairs({"Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames", "Blizzard_CUFProfiles"}) do EnableAddOn(v) end ReloadUI()

  • Just give me a macro for toggling the Raid Frames, I don't want to use your addon.
/run local f = IsAddOnLoaded("Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames") and DisableAddOn or EnableAddOn for _, v in ipairs({"Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames", "Blizzard_CUFProfiles"}) do f(v) end ReloadUI()

Tagging as v1.3


    - Now only toggles the Raid Frames, instead of Raid Manager and Raid Container separately

    There should be zero chance of any taint now in v1.3 =)

    I deleted my WTF folder cause my auctioneer plugin broke the AH and I wasn't seeing it anymore. This plugin stopped working too. I really need this because the blizz default raid frames hurt my eyes. Any way to fix it?

    Sorry reaper666735, I was wrong.

    Ever since patch 4.2 the party frames seem to be anchored to the Raid Manager, and when that's disabled, nothing anchors the party frames anymore. This should be fixed now in the v1.2 update

    I'm not sure if this change will conflict with other Unit Frame addons though

  • #20

    i will ofc report any and all errors should it occur  , and you can then see if it is related to hide raid frame or not :)

  • #14

    since 1.1 and the standard Hard Disable option enabled , the Party frame's are also hidden randomly , could you please Fix this little bug ^^  (  if it is indeed a bug lol )  , i just want to keep seeing my party frame but when it goes raid to hide that Blizzard standard raid frame as i use Healing addons for that :)

  • #15

    Do you have the "Use Raid-Style Party Frames" option checked? As in, you're using the raid frames for your party frames too?

    • If you want to use the default party frames, then the "Use Raid-Style Party Frames" option should be unchecked.

      Note: The "Raid Profiles" options panel for said option gets removed with the "hard disable", so you'd have to either:
      A) Uncheck the "hard disable" option first before accessing the "Raid Profiles" options panel and then do a /reload

      B) Otherwise you can try this script:
      /console useCompactPartyFrames 0  
    • If you want to use the raid style party frames, then I don't know any real solution. Since it's essentially still the raid frames and you will still get the same kind of taint.

      If the "Use Raid-Style Party Frames" option was checked,  the raid style party frames will already be hidden ofcourse.

      A workaround might be to check the "hard disable" option everytime you are in a raid, and uncheck it everytime you are in a party.
    Sorry if I didn't understand what you meant and for the overly use of bolded text ...

    i mean the normal party frame on the left , under your character portrait is gone with the Hard Disable , and i have none of the options in addon checked ( well had to uncheck Hard Disable :p ) so i dunno if this makes more sense :)

  • #13
    • Since the v1.1 release, the Hard Disable option is now enabled by default

    This will remove any taint, but in turn there is a chance other addons that rely, modify, or also try to disable the Raid Frames will throw errors

    • Please use this script if you want to use the Raid Frames again, in case you removed HideRaidFrame:
    /run for _, v in ipairs({"Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames", "Blizzard_CUFProfiles"}) do EnableAddOn(v) end ReloadUI()

    OK, so.. to hide the Blizzard Raid Frames, do I need to check or uncheck those 2 boxes? It's really not that obvious if the checkboxes are to show or to hide the respective options..

    Oh, and, for me, checking them resulted in them frames showing up all over my Grid. -_-

  • #12

    To hide them you need to uncheck them. Sorry for not making it obvious in the options

    The idea behind this was to provide configuration options in case players wanted to hide either the "Raid Manager" or the "Raid Container", and that they otherwise wouldn't be bothered about using the options

    Sorry for the late reply, viper2042

    I suspect this is the InterfaceOptions_AddCategory taint, which addons use to add their options into the blizzard interface options

    I can't test to confirm this though, since I don't have an active subscription at the moment, and starter edition accounts are not eligible for Pet Battles ..

    I could maybe remove the blizzard options category, since HideRaidFrame uses its own Ace3 options window from the /hideraid slash command, and I could maybe "weak-embed" the Ace3 framework to single out taint from other addons that also utilize the Ace3 framework

    The only real cause of taint should be when you login/reload while you are already in a Raid group, which all addons with the same functionality sadly can not avoid

    As a last resort, there always is the Hard Disable option,  which completely disables the Blizzard_CompactRaidFrames addon, but it might "break" other addons which also disable or work on it
