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

It would be cool if Bongos offered a movable frame for the buffs/debuffs.

If you'd read the posts below yours you would have seen that CyCircled is most likely causing that problem.

**Edit***
Yep it seemed to by Cycircled, btw to the poster above me I did read the posts below mine and for some reason, maybe I was temporarily blind but I did not see the mention of cycircled

Ah ok, in all honesty then profiles aren't all that useful. I really hate playing a class that respecs multiple times per week and has to change his button bars around each time to optimize tanking/dps (warrior) or healing/dps (shaman).

Oh well, I may explore other bar addons, but I've used Bongos for so long that I'm reluctant to do so...

I noticed that my bar modifiers aren't working. I have bar 4 set to switch to bar 9 on Alt keybind. Doesn't work anymore. Not sure how long this has been, but just noticed today.

Edit: As stated below, CyCircled is the culprit - I reverted back to a version from last week.

I'm having some slight trouble with bongos on my warrior. i hvae bar1 set up to switch when i switch stances and now it doesnt switch buttons so no matter what stance i always have my battle stance buttons on there. And shortly after that the icons disappered from my bars but the buttons are still there and only work with the keybinds i have for them. im getting a little frustrated figuring it out so any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: I disabled cycircled and now my stance dancing is fine.

Profiles?

Are profiles fully working?

I'd like to create two profiles, one for Healing and one for DPSing, and then depending on which spec I am on a given day, I could select it and click set to "turn it on".

If I toggle the apply options in cyCircled, the problem seems to be temporarily fixed. A reload later and again it needs this shaking to work.

Help please

First of all, I love your mod. Since I started playing WoW and discovered it, I can't play with anything else.

Now, I am on to my 1st alt, a Hunter. I am trying to make a macro that on one press will switch between Aspect of Hawk and Aspect of Monkey. I also want the macro to switch from a ranged attacks bar and a melee attacks bar. I can't figure out how to do this with Bongos2. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Invis/ Masked buttons?

I dont know if you already have a new version in the works for 2.3, but I have come across a problem on test.

As a Druid, changing forms makes some bars lose all the spells on it. Changing back to elf form, the buttons are still gone (they were there before changing forms).

Zoning fixes things. These are bars that are set to not change based on form that are losing their spells until zoning.
