Okay, I checked and it turns out that the forum editor corrupts the code :(

I fixed it but you still have to remove the last space that editor adds after the string (it should finish with ==)

This is what you get after the Import:

Remove this line and you'll get this:

Hi Pandacho! Thank you for this guide, btw!
So I tried following it step by step but... yeah- there are a WHOLE lot more changes with a ton of options! For example, in the NamePlates that are specific boxes now. There arent any targetplayer nameplates?
I really like where you got to at the end with the boxes with life bars and the minimalist sort but I cant figure out how to get it to that?

Also, the Toggleanchors are way more involved with a lot more boxes. I know there is a lot to customize but I really want to figure out how to simplify it like yours for just healing? They all show or need to be there somehow, but your unitframes are a quarter of what mine are.

Hello!

1. Regarding targetplayer nameplates: you are mixing 2 different things. There is a NamePlates function that shows you some info near a name of a player/NPC (you can enable/disable it with Ctrl+V) and there are UnitFrames - Player Frame, Target Frame, Target of Target Frame are the parts of it.

To make it easier to understand, check the screenshot:

2. In Toggle Anchors you don't have to customize anything - it's just a field where you drag different parts of your ElvUI frames if you want them in some other places than the default. The Anchors only show your all the possible frames but it doesn't mean that you use all of them. 

What frames to use you choose with Enable/Disable button in the main Config window left menu.

This may sound weird, but I use 2 different profiles for when I play pve and pvp. I'm having a problem keeping my spells in the same spots after switching profiles. I will set up one profile, then switch to the other and the abilities have shifted and are not like I left them before switching. Is there anyway to fix this?

Hey Pandacho.

First of all i really appreciate your guide - amazing how easy i got to navigate though ElvUI after reading your guide, thanks alot.

Now, to my question - Well, i've been using the addon VuhDo alot (even before ElvUI) and i've grown quite attached to it. So i've been wondering about if the setup you use (the healer one you've exported) is compatible with this VuhDo (mostly about having the groups inbetween  the actionbars)?

And btw, is there a setup you can recommend while using ElvUI and VuhDo, or a fellew WoW profesional that is using those combined you can redirect me to? (because right now, my groups is just floating around the screen - haven't find the perfect spot yet, while using ElvUI).

Thanks alot ^^

It is VuhDo - the frames you see between the Action Bars :)

You can check my VuhDo setups in this guide and there's a video in the end how it looks in raid.

Hello! I really love ElvUI so thx alot for updating it!

I installed it like 20 min before raid and when the first boss was pulled the whole UI disapeared, like when you do Alt+z and when I pushed esc the UI came back for a millisec then disapeared again, I unchecked Elvui and it was back to normal, but I still wanna use Elvui, so how do I fix this?

That sounds very odd, I've never had this happen to me.  You might try re-installing ElvUI.  Is it only in combat that your UI disappears?  Only against bosses or in raids?

Did you download the latest version yet (10.28)?

Anyways, I will look into this in the evening because after the latest Blizz changes in 7.1 it may be necessary to upload new profiles.

I recently switched to Elvui and cannot for the life of me figure out how to disable the Elvui range check so I can use the DBM range check that has the nice visual of where people are in range of me. This is extra annoying for the Il'gynoth fight. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not sure what you are talking about, may you share a screenshot please?

All the addons visuals for the range check were disabled in 7.1.

How do you mean 'ingame'? You can't see ElvUI on the loading screen/addons list (before you choose a toon and enter the game)

or you can't see ElvUI line here:

1. You can't see it in the list and it doesn't work in game or you didn't check after loading?

2. Did you scrolled to the end - it's not after 'D' but after 'W'?

3. Did you download the last version (10.29)?

I'm having an issue with the raid debuff tooltips on the raid frames. It's a huge pain as you can't clique/mouseover heal over them. Is there any way to turn off these tooltips? Or do I have to go back to Grid? (I hate vuhdo sorry).

I have only 1 addon in my addon list. Its Bagnon and only Bagnon is in the list. Also I did download the latest version 10.29

Can you please post a screen of your Addon folder in the File Explorer because I can't imagine why wouldn't you see the addon if you unpacked it there?

UnitFrames->Raid Frames->untick 'Enable' in Debuffs in the dropdown menu on the right side.

Or, if you do want to see them, check 'Click Through' option (near 'Count Font Size').

Well, looks like a bug.

The only thing I can suggest here is to delete or move away WTF and Cache folders and ElvUI from the Addons folder, then download and reinstall it.

If it wouldn't help too, open a ticket at the project page

      We've heard several reports that alchemy experimentation has been re-enabled on live servers! Blizzard previously disabled basic and advanced experimentation back in Thursday's hotfixes due to a bug, and it seems the profession feature is back, according to the reddit post below, as well as other player reports. So go out there and see what you can do with all those flasks and potions!

      Many players seem to be having trouble getting their Feldrake mount Twitch rewards and are  asking for help and asking what to do. There doesn't seem to be a definitive answer or solution, unfortunately, but several players have offered a couple of potential workarounds that might work, so let's take a look.
      Again none of this is guaranteed, but considering responses to tickets are "we can't help you, but are looking into it", they may be worth a try. So first off, actually claiming the mount seems to be working, as in clicking the claim button on Twitch, however players aren't finding the mount in the game.
      First things first, make sure to check in the right place - the top of the mount journal where the mount will appear as a present box, similar to the Dragon Kite for pets.

      Source.
      The second thing you can try is re-syncing/reconnecting your battle.net with your Twitch account, waiting a few minutes, and hope that updates the process, as it did work for some players (source). You can go to your battle.net connections page and try reconnecting Twitch there.

      And lastly, if the above didn't work, you may be one of the unfortunate players affected by a known issue Blizzard are working on. This will get resolved eventually, so just be patient and wait for a fix, but know you're not alone with this issue.

      Hopefully some of this helps and you can get your Feldrake soon, or at least puts you at ease that Blizzard are working on it.

      Find out how to get a free 34-slot bag fast on live servers!
      Misty Satchel is looted from the Misty Treasure Chest object located behind the waterfall in Crumbling Life Archway (The Waking Shores).  If you're using TomTom, here are the exact coordinates:
      /way The Waking Shores 58.71 53.13 Free 34-Slot Bag Jump down from the top of the waterfall and you will find a secret cave behind it.


      Inside the cave, you will find a chest, which contains the Misty Satchel bag.
