Bongos2  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.10.1
by: Tuller [More]
I have written a new action bar addon, called Dominos, and am no longer supporting this one. Please feel free to try it out, along with Trinity Bars, and Bartender 3


Bongos is an action bar replacement designed to be both low memory, and easy to setup. It is not as feature rich as other bar mods, but should include the features most commonly used.

Version History
A Brief Guide

Included Addons
  • Bongos2: The core addon.
  • Bongos2 ActionBar: Breaks up the main action bar into movable parts
  • Bongos2 Stats: A display for latency, framerate, and memory usage
  • Bongos2 RollBar: Makes the frame for rolling on items movable
  • Bongos2 CastBar: A movable casting bar, with the ability to show cast time
  • Bongos2 XP: A movable experience bar
  • Bongos2 MapBar: A movable mapbar
  • Bongos2 Options: A dynamically loaded options menu for Bongos

Features
  • Every Bongos bar can be moved, hidden, and have its scale and opacity altered
  • Sticky bars - Each bar can be anchored to any other bar
  • 120 action buttons, which can be setup in any number of bars
  • Both macro and key binding text on action buttons can be hidden
  • Customizable stance transitions for each bar

General Settings
  • To bring up the options menu: type /bongos menu
  • To unlock bars: uncheck the lock bars option in the main options menu
  • To hide or show a bar: unlock bars, then middle click or shift right click it
  • To move a bar: unlock bars, and then click and drag it with the left mouse button
  • To bring up a bar's configuration menu, right click it

Key Bindings
  • Bindings for the Bongos action bar should only be done via the bindings menu in Bongos
  • To bind keys, open the main options panel, and select the bindings option. Hover over a button, then press a key to bind it to that button

Action Bar Settings
  • Accessing general action bar options: open up the main options window (/bongos menu) and select the action bars panel
  • Adjusting the layout of a given bar: unlock bars and right click the bar you want to adjust to bring up its configuration menu
  • Moving buttons: Hold down the key for moving buttons (shift by default), and drag a button. Alternatively, unlock button positions by shift right clicking the mini map button, or unchecking the option in the main options menu
  • Making a bar bigger: You can increase the maximum size of a given bar by reducing the number of action bars. To do so, adjust the action bars slider on the action bar panel of the main options menu. This option will reset the settings of your action bars

Stances and Paging
  • Stances and paging are configured via a bar's right click menu. With bars unlocked, right click the bar you want to change,

Slash Commands
  • All commands start with either /bongos, /bob, or /bgs
  • <barList> can have a possible value of an actionbar number, menu, bags, pet. class, or all
  • You can also specify a group or range of bars, the command /bo scale 1-3 class 1.2 will scale action bars 1 2 3, and the class bar to 120% of their normal size.
  • /bongos - Shows the options menu, if present
  • /bongos lock - Toggles locking bars positions
  • /bongos show <barList> - Shows <barList>
  • /bongos hide <barList> - Hides <barList>
  • /bongos toggle <barList> - Toggles <barList>
  • /bongos scale <barList> <scale> - Sets the scale of <barList> to <scale>
  • /bongos setalpha <barList> <opacity> - Sets the opacity of <barList> to <opacity>
  • /bongos set <profile> - Sets the current character to use <profile>
  • /bongos copy <profile> - Copies all settings from <profile>
  • /bongos delete <profile> - Deletes <profile>
  • /bongos reset - Loads default settings
  • /bongos version - Displays what version of bongos you're running
  • /keybound - Toggles keybinding mode

WoW has the standard keybindings Ctrl-F1 through to Ctrl-FWhatever for stances/forms. You can clear them in the WoW standard keybindings bit, or using Bongos keybindings stuff. Just as an FYI

I am having a similar issue. I manually re-enabled the "CTRL" self-cast option that Blizzard removed, and I have bars one and two stacked (with bar 1 on top), and set to page with a seperation of "1" (this causes both bars to flip through "pages" of 24 buttons per "page"). Page 1 (on top) is bound to "alt+(1-0,-,=)" and Page 2 (on bottom) is bound to "1-0,-,=". "CTRL"-self-casting works properly for the buttons on pag on buttons now works only for items on the very first "page" of my action buttons. For pages 2 and 3, instead of self-casting the buff, it now activates one of the buttons above the button I attempted to self cast.

its a paging issue, bar 7 better be on the current page , or you wont be able to click your buttons. i turned all my pages off, and all my bars work now, even stance based switching works.

ok, i think the problem i was having was either caused by what i stated earlier, or it happened because i tried to change the page of my first bar even though i had paging disabled for all bars.

So, how do you get this to work with shadowform? I can't dock another bar to another one, I want a bar that keybinds from 1 to = that switches buttons when I'm in and out of shadowform.


When I try to dock a bar on top of it I get this error: interface\framxml\uiparent.lua:1546: attempt to index local 'frame' (a number value)

7111 keybindings are wonky

i can't narrow it down either but my keybindings are wonky. here's what i did:

bar 8 has my mount on it, bound to the ` key. hidden bar.

bar 7 has some talents and macros and trinket buttons on it. not hidden.

i do a /rl to reload ui

bar 7 is not hidden - i try any keybindings on it and they do NOT work. strange.

bar 8 IS HIDDEN - i try the keybind for my mount, and IT WORKS!

then i try the keybinds on bar 7 again, and NOW THEY WORK.

very weird. hope this helps narrow down teh problems!

i'm having a problem with the latest bongos. i'm not 100% sure what causes it, but it might be when i have a target selected other than myself and i then try to cast a self buff on myself with a bongos keybinding. for example, i had a banker selected and tested out my bongos keybinding for life tap.

afterwards, keybindings no longer work. it also breaks many of my buttons completely and mixes other ones up (i clicked on will of the forsaken and it tried to cast summon imp). this is a really weird problem that i'm having only after updating to 7.1.11.

reloading the ui does not fix the problem. only re-logging will fix it. i also updated omnicc today, but i don't see how that could caue this problem.

anyone else experiencing this?

Is there still no way to get to action bars 7-10 without stances? I'd just like to be able to page directly to them (shift+7 for example).

There's a bug in 2.0.3 preventing them from working properly.
