I'm not updating Outfitter for now
I've suspended my WoW subscription and will probably not be playing again until the next expansion. If you come up with code changes to fix problems introduced by content patches in the meantime, please post your fixes in the comments section and I'll work on getting them integrated and posted.
Lots of things can go wrong, but one of the most common is people having problems with Outfitter not working at all. Crazy stuff like tons of errors (if errors are enabled), or it won't change outfits, or the UI is a train wreck. This happens pretty much for one reason: Outfitter was updated while WoW was still running. Just restart WoW all the way from the desktop (not just from login) and it'll be happy again.
Why? Addons have a file called the Table of Contents which describes how WoW should load and start the addon. The problem is that WoW copies the ToC file into memory at startup and will never update it again as long as WoW is still running. If an addon update has changes to the ToC then WoW won't see those changes if it's still running while you update. Those changes to the ToC may include critical things like new files to be loaded. Without those files the addon likely can't even initialize itself correctly resulting in all those errors, mangled UI, etc.
Feel free to report bugs in the comments section at the bottom of this page, but please don't paste in your bug/crash logs. Those logs are very large since they usually include the list of every addon you're running and that makes the post take a huge amount of screen space in the comments section. That, in turn, makes it very difficult for me to find previous questions and bug reports. Crash dumps are great and extremely useful, but please post them into a CurseForge ticket and then refer to that ticket in your comment so I know where to find it. Thanks!
