What's happening with my addons?
Return to board index
I'm puzzled as to where I'm going wrong with my addons. I've installed Auctioneer from the Curse client and made sure it's up to date but my addons screen at the character select screen in WoW says it's out of date. In-game I get no funky auctioneer options at the AH so I've selected "load out of date addons" in the addon list. This still has no effect. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Auctioneer from Curse Client but it's still the same problem.
The same thing is happening for Omen Threat Meter - I can't get it to show in-game and the addon list is telling me it's out of date.
Also - I've been into WoW>Interface>Addons and deleted all Auctioneers folders then re installed from scratch but still no joy I'm afraid. WoW still says the addon is out of date and wont enable it in-game.
Do you have it enabled for the character(s) you are trying it on?
"Load out of date addons"
load it... in the addons screen, does it have a yellow check mark or a grey one? If it's grey, this means it's not enabled for all characters on the current server, select your character in the upper left to make sure it is enabled for that character, or uncheck and recheck it under "All" to enable it for all characters (on that server, this setting is not global)
I'm not using Auctioneer, so no guarantee, but when ingame, you should have the command /auctioneer when it's loaded. Enter this command, and if WoW doesn't complain that there is no such command, but there is no reaction at all, it is probably a problem of the addon itself, and you should contact the author. Which, in general, is the best way to receive feedback on problems that only happen for a few addons, or even just one.
Cheers for the help. I've ensured that it's enabled for all characters but it's still listing all it's components as out of date (yellow ticks against red addon components).
/auctioneer in-game just returns the "type /help for a list of a few commands" dialog.
I think that the most current version of Auctioneer was last put out for 5.0.4, and has yet to be updated for 5.1. However, unlike with other patches, it hasn't messed up the ability to use Auctioneer. This is probably why it's showing as out-of-date. Not that big of a deal, since it still works, but still a little annoying if you have OCD and don't like seeing 'out-of-date' on your addons list.
Maybe try an alternate auction mod till it is updated? I've tried several and one that has a few nice features but not all is
Hi! I'm new here. My name is Lilly. I've just starting playing wow and i'm thinking what addons should i use? Which one would you recommended?
I also have Auctioneer downloaded
and as long as you've got checked the box to load out of date addons it wont cause you any issues. From what I have seen and read the problem is that part of the code for the addon includes the current patch number, so if there are no changes required to the current addon and the author doesn't get around to changing that one line then it will show as out of date even if it still functions perfectly well.
