An AddOn for World of Warcraft: Vanilla (1.12.1) and The Burning Crusade (2.4.3), which aims to be a full replacement for the original interface. The design is inspired by several screenshots I’ve seen from TukUI, ElvUI and others. This addon delivers modern features and a minimalistic style that’s easy to use right from the start. It is entirely written from scratch without any inclusion of third-party addons or libraries.

This is not an addon-pack like ShaguUI, however, there is support for external addons like MobHealth3, DPSMate and others, but they will never be shipped within the package.

Please do not re-upload or distribute outdated versions of this project. However, you are more than welcome to fork or link to the official github page.

What does “pfUI” stand for?
The term “pfui!” is german and simply stands for “pooh!”, because I’m not a big fan of creating configuration UI’s, especially not via the Wow-API (you might have noticed that in ShaguUI).

How do I report a Bug?
Please provide as much information as possible in the Bugtracker. If there is an error message, provide the full content of it. Just telling that “there is an error” won’t help any of us. Please consider adding additional information such as: since when did you got the error, does it still happen using a clean configuration, what other addons are loaded and which version you’re running. When playing with a non-english client, the language might be relevant too. If possible, explain how people can reproduce the issue.

How can I contribute? Report errors and issues in the Bugtracker. Please make sure to have the latest version installed and check for conflicting addons beforehand.

I have bad performance, what can I do?
There’s only one known performance issue: that is while using “Frame Shadows”. Make sure to disable those in the pfUI settings (Settings -> Appearance -> Enable Frame Shadows). If you still have a low performance, it’s most likely a combination with another addon. Disable all AddOns but pfUI and then enable one-by-one, till the performance problem occurs again. Make sure to report the identified AddOn and what you did to reproduce via the Bugtracker.

Where is the happiness indicator for pets?
The pet happiness is shown as the color of your pet’s frame. Depending on your skin, this can either be the text or the background color of your pet’s healthbar:

Since version 4.0.7 there is also an additional icon that can be enabled from the pet unit frame options.

Can I use Clique with pfUI?
This addon already includes support for clickcasting. If you still want to make use of clique, all pfUI’s unitframes are already compatible to Clique-TBC. For Vanilla, a pfUI compatible version can be found Here. If you want to keep your current version of Clique, you’ll have to apply this Patch.

Where is the Experience Bar?
The experience bar shows up on mouseover and whenever you gain experience, next to left chatframe by default. There’s also an option to make it stay visible all the time.

How do I show the Damage- and Threatmeter Dock?
If you enabled the “dock”-feature for your external (third-party) meters such as DPSMate or KTM, then you’ll be able to toggle between them and the Right Chat by clicking on the “>” symbol on the bottom-right panel.

Why is my chat always resetting to only 3 lines of text?
This happens if “Simple Chat” is enabled in blizzards interface settings (Advanced Options). Paste the following command into your chat to disable that option: /run SIMPLE_CHAT="0";; ReloadUI()

How can I enable mouseover cast?
On Vanilla, create a macro with “/pfcast SPELLNAME”. If you also want to see the cooldown, You might want to add “/run if nil then CastSpellByName(“SPELLNAME”) end” on top of the macro. For The Burning Crusade, just use the regular mouseover macros.

Will there be pfUI for Activision’s “Classic” remakes?
No, it would require an entire rewrite of the AddOn since the game is now a different one. The AddOn-API has evolved during the last 15 years and the new “Classic” versions are based on a current retail gameclient. I don’t plan to play any of those new versions, so I won’t be porting any of my addons to it.

Everything from scratch?! Are you insane?
Most probably, yes.
