InfoPanel is a lightweight information panel that will place itself in the edge of the screen, it slightly resembles other addons such as Titan Panel or FuBar, but I've tried to keep it simple. It supports plugins which each will add different kind of information to the bar for quick review during combat without having to bring up other kind of interface.
Notice: As this addon does not move the default vanilla Blizzard UI, it should be used in combination with another addon that handles that.
The slash command for this addon is "/ip".
Why Use InfoPanel?
With all the other major panel mods out there, you might wonder why even bother with this addon over the others which has more options and more plugins.
Well, this one was made with the thought of being lightweight in mind. If you only have the use for a few plugins for your panel, such as one showing time, durability and your money. This addon is ideal, and it hardly takes any resources.
User Friendliness & Settings
As this is an early release, I have not put in much time to improve the user friendliness, I run WoW with action bar and unit frame addons, so if you use the normal blizzard UI, there might be some problems with those frames overlapping InfoPanel. Let me know.
Setting up InfoPanel is quite limited in this early release, but to adjust the order in which the plugins appear, you have to edit the "InfoPanel.toc" file and adjust the order of the plugins as you prefer to have them show. If you wish to disable some of the plugins, simply just remove or comment out its entry in this file.
