This is an official WoWWiki editing and policy guide.

Formatting Macros

Note: Commands for some of the older macros have been modified significantly. Where possible, please validate and mark with last working patch or version number.

When editing a macro on the Wiki please:

  • name it, describe what it does, and use a 'space' before each command for the 'code box'
  • note the version of WoW that you tested it in
  • if moving from another page, remove it from the old page
  • follow this Macro formatting example:
==== Macro Name ====
 /y Hooray, I made a macro!
* Use: This yells, "Hooray, I made a macro!"
* Works in 5.4.2
which creates:

Macro Name

/y Hooray, I made a macro!
  • Use: This yells, "Hooray, I made a macro!"
  • Works in 5.4.2

More Examples

Other useful examples of formatted Macros.

/cast [nocombat,Vashj'ir,swimming]Abyssal Seahorse
  • Use: To Fish or Mount up.
  • Notes: A one button macro for flying, swimming, or running mount. If equipped with a fishing pole, the same bound button will fish for you.
  • Please write in whatever mounts you prefer to ride upon.
  • Works in 4.0.6

Fish with Specific Pole

/equip Big Iron Fishing Pole
/use 4 4
  • Use: equip fishing pole, then with second click it will attach a lure that you have in your 5th bag top right corner.
  • Notes: If you have a 22 slot bag: /use 4 2. You can also write in the name of your favorite lure in place of 4 2, and place the lure anywhere, or use a fishing trinket.
  • Works great in 5.4.2
