Bartender4  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 4.6.5
by: Nevcairiel [More]

Bartender4 is a full ActionBar replacement mod. It provides you with all the features needed to fully customization most aspects of your action and related bars.

WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor
The latest version of Bartender (4.6.0) is fully compatible with WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor!


  • Support for all Action Bars and all related bars

    - 10 Action Bars
    - Stance Bar
    - Pet Bar
    - Bag Bar
    - Micro Menu
    - XP/Reputation Bar
  • All Bars are fully customizable (Scale, Alpha, Fade-Out settings, ...)
  • Very flexible and customizable Show/Hide driver based on Macro Conditions
  • Additional Layout and Paging settings for Action Bars

    - Page all bars based on Stance or Modifier
    - Possess Bar support
    - Custom State driver support with Macro Conditions
  • Options to hide specific elements of the buttons (Macro Text, HotKey, more could be added on demand)
  • StickyFrames support
  • Masque/ButtonFacade support!
  • Easy Hotkey Binding using KeyBound
  • Options to control the hiding of the default blizzard artwork (you might still want that to be displayed..)

Q: How do i access the Configuration?
A: You can open the configuration with the Slash Commands (/bt or /bartender) or through the Bartender4 LDB plugin.

Q: Can Bartender4 import settings from Bartender3?
A: No. Those two mods are too different to be able to import settings.

Q: Where are my keybindings? And how do i bind new keys?
A: BT3 Keybindings will not be ported over either, you have to use the new KeyBound to re-bind your keys. You can access KeyBound by its slash command (/kb) or through the button in the BT4 config. Hover a button, press key → voila!

Q: CyCircled Support? I like my button skins?
A: No reason to cry! There is a sparkling new skinning addon/library out there! ButtonFacade is way easier to work with as a action-bar author, and its easier to write skins for it too! Alot of cyCircled Skins have already been ported to ButtonFacade, and more are on their way! After installing ButtonFacade just use its configuration to change the skin of the BT4 buttons (/bf)

Q: How do i disable the snapping of the bars?
A: Currently, you can temporarily override the snapping by holding down the Shift Key while moving your bars, or uncheck the option in the popup when your bars are unlocked.

More Bars!!!

Please Make more bars...I have tried every bar mod out there and bartender is by far the most stable but doesn't offer enough bars. 5 extra would be awesome. I like having everything at a click ....I know 50 people that are mad at Trinitys designer and you would make them very happy and myself.

please please please more bars!!!!!!

Please add xpbar and repbar to default reset code

Nice job on Bartender 4, I'm enjoying your work immensely.

I was jostled while moving the xp bar, and as a result the xp bar was pushed out of the viewable area. Resetting the profile resulted in all of the bars moving back to the starting position except for the xp and rep bars. I browsed through the lua's and found the problem, but I wasn't able to modify your code satisfactorily.

The code that resets the positions of the action bars to default simply does not mention the rep and xp bars.

Please add the xp and rep bars to the reset code.

Thank you for considering my request. And again, thank you for the solid coding and good workmanship that you put into Bartender 4.

Warmest regards,
Dolf, GM of Super Ninja Death Squad on Arygos

I have a question: is it possible to fade out the action bars (ex: 50% alpha), but then have the action bars change back to 100% when you enter combat / use a spell on the corresponding set?

Thank you.

Only trouble I occasionally have run into on this addon is that when I move around the configuration menu, it occasionally moves higher than I intended, making it hard to drag it back down from the top of my screen.

Until now, I've always been able to get it back down... now I'm stuck with the config menu at the top of the screen, making it very hard to customize the screen itself. Perhaps you could include a /barreset command that would put the config menu back to centered in the screen?

Or possibly even make the config menu movable from anywhere, as opposed to just the very top of the menu?

Button goes black on mouseover

When playing my warrior and I mouse over buttons on Bar 1 the icon goes black and obscures the button tooltip. Have tried changing a few settings but can't seem to work it out, doesn't happen on my druid or hunter tho.

Very nice action bar mod. If I may make a suggestion, and option to combine the XP/Rep bar into one would be nice with the ability to toggle the XP or Rep.

I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to get bar paging working on my shadow priest. It worked by default on my warrior and her stances but I really need help on why it's not working for my priest! thank you

That too! Being able to use DreamLayout in Bartender is TOTALLY different to the DreamLayout in ButtonFacade. I used to use DreamLayour in Bartender3, with cyCircled skinning in LiteStep.

Now if I skin with DreamLayout, it looks crap. So I skin with LiteStep. But yes, having DreamLayout in Bartender4 would be amazing ^^

There is only one problem I have with this over Bartender3. Actually, make that two.

1) The snapping bars is really annoying me. Is relative and absolute bar positioning going to be implemented like it was in Bartender3?

That really was a great help. Currently, I have some bars snapping into each other, when I don't want them to!

2) I miss Cooldowncount. Been using OmniCC since the patch, and I really don't like it as much as Cooldowncount. The icons are only ever one size so on a big button they are perfect, but on a small one they are too big!

Any chance of having Cooldowncount support added to this? =D

Other than those two things, its great.

I've posted this on the WoW UI & Macros forum and my realm forum but I rarely if ever get any answers to my addon questions on the main forums so I figued I would try here as well.

I need to set up button paging. On my old hunter I had it set up in such a way that there was a toggle key to switch one of my action bars from my ranged stings to melee. BT4 has a custom paging conditionals option and I was wondering if it's possible to set paging on toggle instead of holding down a specific key the entire time as this keeps one hand more or less busier than I'd like.

Is this possible? If so, what do I need to put into my conditional box to get this set up?

No, FuBar has been replaced, and FuBar plugins are getting old. We switched to LibDataBroker now, which is a generic display framework. Common display addons include Fortress and ButtonBin, i think you can find some of those here on WoWI too

So 3.0 forced me to update from 3 to 4..alls well except for 1 cosmetic issue I don't much care for..

All my action bar buttons have a silver border..even when I lock bars & buttons..

I've never used ButtonFascade or whatever or anything to skin anything..I've just never encountered the silver border before & would like it I missing some toggle option within BT4?

When I leave stealth, bar 7 appears for a moment and then bar 1 appears.
It does that by default, from what I can tell. Try resetting your settings.
