Classic Guild Frame

Restores the look and functionality of the old GuildUI by changing the look of the new CommunitiesUI with the added bonus of the Chat.

  • Looks should be pretty close to the original GuildUI. Few minor changes and different element sizes here and there.
    • Currently Roster is the only tab that isn't styled like the GuildUI's, because that one would be hard to do. I might take a look at it someday later.
  • You can select which tabs you want to Enable/Disable, incase you don't ever want to go to some of the tabs and don't mind to see them gone.
  • You can select to which tab the addon opens instead of the game's default Chat
    • Addon will open to the Default-tab the first time of your game session when you open your CommunitiesUI. After that the addon opens to the last open tab.
    • If you enable Always open to Default Tab then the addon will open to your Default-tab every time you open the CommunitiesUI.
  • You can have the Chat-tab glow if you have unread messages in your communities.


Unlike the previous versions with either custom UI (v1.0) or replaced ShowUIPanel-function (v1.1), this new version (v1.2) is built completely by reusing Blizzard's own Blizzard_Communities elements and is mostly taint-free. So far there has been only one taint found on setting guild notes to players, but if you run into any errors, please let me know.


At the moment there isn't fix for this because I don't know what part of my addon causes this taint. So if you want to set/change guild notes, you have to disable this addon or ask someone else to change the notes. If you know what causes or how to fix this taint, please let me know.

In game version 8.2 taintlog level 2 gives following information:

9/10 17:36:44.562 Interface\FrameXML\StaticPopup.lua:5042 StaticPopup_OnClick() 9/10 17:36:44.562 An action was blocked because of taint from ClassicGuildFrame - SetNote() 9/10 17:36:44.562 Interface\FrameXML\StaticPopup.lua:2783 OnAccept() 9/10 17:36:44.562 Interface\FrameXML\StaticPopup.lua:5074 StaticPopup_OnClick() 9/10 17:36:44.562 StaticPopup1Button1:OnClick()


You can help translate the addon by heading to the Curseforge's Translation tool and PM me to let me know there are new translations (the new Curseforge-site makes it really hard to keep track of what has been done to the translations).

Known Bugs

Bugs listed here are known, but I don't have know-how on how to fix them. Please don't report these to the issue tracker, but if you know how to fix these, don't hesitate to contact me.

  • If you use ElvUI and use the default-setting of letting ElvUI skin CommunitiesUI, the News-tab won't have backdrop and the Info-tab will have the News-backdrop hovering on the side of the CommunitiesFrame. This is because the ElvUI skin's News-backdrop is attached to the Info-container of the CommunitiesUI instead of the News-container itself.
