Global + AddOn Errors.

Interface and Macros
Hi there,

Okay, so this is really beginning to aggravate me.

With any AddOn I install, there's always errors.

Such as, just now, I attempted to set a Focus target, I got these three:

Some days, I can't set focus, others I can't hit skills with or without keybindings, I can't use Pitbull anymore as when I do, the party frames wont work due to yet another error.

I used the repair utility, deleted my Cache and WTF files and reinstalled the game to no avail.

Could anyone suggest what to do?

Thanks.
There have been a lot of recent changes to WoW and addon authors are trying to keep up. Keep in mind they also pay for the game and want to play it, so they can't spend every waking hour fixing a broken addon.

When browsing addons, it's best to use only the addons that explicitly state that they work with 4.0 and higher on their information page. Or, I dare say, get used to using the default UI.

Also, there have been problems with setting a focus for a very long time now. You can keybind a button to focus your target, or you can also type /focus with someone targeted to set them as your focus. The method of right clicking on your target and choosing "Focus" typically won't work with unit frame addons.
Setting focus through the right click menu is impossible atm with third party unit frames. Other than that, if there are errors, the addons has bugs. Update the erroring addons first and foremost, then contact the author if that doesn't help.
Ohh, I see.

Thanks for clearing that up, I thought I had corrupt files in the WoW Database or something.

I'll just be patient and wait then.
