    Default Addon positioning

    When I log out and back in, all my addons are in a big pile in the middle of the screen. Game does not remember where I left them. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Unfortunately, addons have to fix this themselves. I've got a LibDraggable that I embed in other addons to provide some positioning, but it's not very well considered right now.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Is this a new problem with 1.9? It sounds like something has gone wrong with your saved variables.

    There is a possibility there, as the addon system will now look in personal directories for addon stuff too.

    Does anyone know where the window positioning is stored? Is it a file that I can delete and allow the patcher to recreate it?

    Check your My Documents, with 1.9 Addon saved files should be stored in a folder there.

    This change should resolve your issues, unless it is something really wierd.

    Note that it won't move people's existing saved files, it'll just check in a new location for them. Chances are good most people's saved files are still in the old location.

    Does it copy everything to the new location? I've had a decent number of people in my guild have issues with updating their addons because everything was copied to the new location, but they were still updating the old location.

    Also what is the exact path that is created, and is there any checks that would prevent it from being created?

    It doesn't copy anything anywhere. I'm honestly not sure what's up with the people in your guild All it does is check in a new location first, then default to the new location if it can't find addons anywhere.

    It's possible that third-party addon updater programs are copying things around - that's the best guess I have.

    This is great discussion but can anyone tell me why the positioning of the addons is not saving? What file holds the screen coordinates and what can be done to get it to save the changes? It only became an issue last week.

    If nothing is saving, I'd possibly suggest removing the interface folder entirely (this is perfectly safe and will only effect addons and their saved data - nothing Rift related is held inside this folder). And start from fresh, which would default now to you "My Documents" location.

    This should help you more in the long run, at the cost of a small amount of one-time set-up.

    Ensure you are completely out of Rift when making any changes, and when starting the fresh installation of your addons, use the "Open Addon Directory" button on the Addon manager in Rift to pull up the correct location and allow Rift to create the default directories.
