EnemyAbilityBar, Party Ability Bars, or Aesa

Read the sticky.
But no seriously, my [insert frame] isn't staying put!!
Read the whole sticky, specifically http://www.arenajunk...95 and slightly earlier posts.
8. How do I display dispel announcements?
9. UF/Bar Addons?
UF: Simplistic, Pitbull, oUF, XPerl, OR: Just use the DEFAULT frames with either MoveAnything! or FluidFrames
Bar: Bartender4, Dominos (or again, use default with MA!/FF)
10. I need to copy my settings.
Switching a char/computer?
You can copy all your settings this way:
0- Log in to the PTR with your copied character one time. Then log out and quit the game.
1- Copy everything in here to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder (ignore the 'PTR'):
World of Warcraft / Interface / AddOns
2- Copy this one file to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder:
World of Warcraft / WTF / Config.wtf
3- Copy all the files BUT NOT THE FOLDERS in here to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder:
World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName>
4- Copy all the files in here to the corresponding folder in your "Test" folder:
World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName> / SavedVariables
5- Look in this folder:
World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName> / <ServerName>
-Find a character which has everything set up the way you like.
-Copy everything in here to the <CharacterName> folder of whatever character you have on the PTR:
World of Warcraft / WTF / Account / <AccountName> / <ServerName> / <CharacterName>
Switching a UI? Try Reflux
11. What are the best addons to use for [insert class/spec]?
#1 Snowfall Keypress
#3 A UF & Bar addon or MoveAnything/Fluid Frames.
#4 Probably InterruptBar or Afflicted
12. I want to make my own short addon, how do I do that?
Put this stuff: http://my-svn.assemb...lmoy/addontest/ inside your Interface/AddOns/ folder. It should be Interface/AddOns/MyCoolAddon/...
Add in code to MyCoolAddon.lua as necessary.
NOTE: Make sure you're saving files as .lua, not .lua.txt - you should probably get a proper text editor like notepad++ http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
NOTE: Make sure that you don't use /run or /script inside of a .lua file, as it's only necessary to do that in-game.
Note: If you think this should be changed just let me know. This is off the top of my head thinking about what is asked most often. I'm trying to keep it down to 10 (#11 & 12 don't count).
