Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.7.1653
by: Phanx, Greltok, Pastamancer
Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.

Please do not use the Bug/Feature buttons to the right, or send me PMs asking for help, reporting bugs, or requesting features. Use the links below instead!

The compact grid of units lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. It shows as much information as possible without overloading you. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how you see it. It works in both party and raid groups, and supports pets and vehicles.

Want more features? The Grid core tries to include only features which are generally useful for all classes and roles, but makes it easy to add new features with a simple plugin API for developers. Over 75 third-party plugins are already available!

Type “/grid” for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.


Need Help?

IMPORTANT: If you are using any version of Grid other than the one posted on this page — such as an alpha version from WowAce — please do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Alpha versions are development snapshots, are not officially supported, and may be buggy or broken, delete your settings, or crash your game. The release (and sometimes beta) versions posted to WoWInterface.com and Curse.com are actually tested.

✤ Found a bug?
Submit a bug report to let us know about the problem so we can fix it!

✤ Problem with a plugin?
Contact the plugin’s author for help. The Grid team cannot provide support for third-party plugins.

✤ Have a suggestion?
Feel free to tell us about your idea, but please make sure there isn’t already a plugin that adds the feature you’re looking for first!

✤ Questions? Comments?
Post a comment on this page, or post in our WowAce forum thread.


Language Support

Grid is compatible with English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文 game clients.

Grid is translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano (partial), Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any language, enter them on the WowAce project page. New and updated translations will be automatically included in the next version of Grid!

Hint: The WowAce interface for adding translations is rather cumbersome. To make the process easier, you can use the Export function on WowAce, copy the exported data into Notepad, fill in your translations, and then paste the new data back into the system using the Import function.

Grid was originally conceived and written by Maia and Pastamancer in late 2006. Phanx has been the primary developer since late 2009. Jerry wrote the original pet support code.

On the last version of grid, I had the foreground showing class colors and then the background was a black color (for every class). I don't know how to do it (I had originally used someone else's layout) but is there a way to get that same effect instead of having the background be a lighter/darker shade of the class color?

I'm also having this problem, and my install was a clean install as well. I checked the folders and I have the specific library you mentioned. I'm wondering what I might be doing wrong.

Hmm wieird...the library is there inside the grid folder and I had done a clean install of Grid since it was an re-write...well I'll try doing another clean install and see what happens.

Re: Re: Grid box cannot be modified


What region are you playing in? Grid 1.30300.1308 is not compatible with WoW 4.0.1, and as such is no longer supported. If your locale has not yet patched to 4.0.1, you'll just have to wait, as no further fixes or changes will be made for older versions of WoW.
Strange. I downloaded the one from this site on Wednesday which said it was compatible with 4.01. Maybe it didnt update on my system even though I rebooted WoW. Thanks for your swift reply

Not sure if you would call this a bug or not...personally just think its something to you probably are going to be ironing out.

The Texture Selection drop down is very small and is listing the entire path for all the textures making it very hard to select a texture. Just letting you know in case you didn't.

Thank you again for the great addon, and loving the rewrite to Ace3. Always glad to see less resource Usage.

Yes, as per the "Known Issues" list at the top of the addon description, most plugins are no longer compatible, as a consequence of transitioning away from the dead Ace2 framework.

Please only report issues here that exist when Grid itself is the only addon enabled; we don't provide support for plugins, and it's entirely the plugin author's responsibility to ensure that their code works with Grid. It takes less than 30 seconds of your time to log out, disable your plugins, and log back in to see if the problem goes away. Every time we have to respond to a bug report that involves a plugin, that's time that isn't being spent fixing real issues.

Finally, make sure when quoting other comments that you only include the relevant part, especially for large comments.

Yes, you are mistaken. Grid has never included any options to disable, hide, or otherwise modify any part of the Blizzard UI.



See the "Known Issues" section at the top of the addon description.



No options have been removed, or even moved. You're probably looking for Layout > Advanced > Layout Anchor or Group Anchor.

Implementing support for the new Clique design has been a huge headache. It doesn't help that there are a number of bugs in Blizzard's secure header system at the moment that we're dealing with at the same time. We're working on it.





Please follow the instructions in the addon description under "How to report a bug in Grid" to troubleshoot and properly report these problems so we can look into them.

Thank you for answering! I love your addon I'm playing in the Ru locale and I seem to have found out at least one of the reasons for the problem. When I disable GridRaidDebuff it seems okay, i can configure options and type /grid (i can press enter after typing this exact command which I couldn't). I'll test a bit more. For some reason I cannot register at wowace now to report it in a ticket - it keeps saying "bad request" Sorry...

Grid box cannot be modified

Hi,

Firstly, I LOVE grid so thank you for an amazing addon. I have downloaded the newest version and I can see the set up window for Grid but I can't change the size of the box itself. It is very tiny and I can move it around but can't configure it. Any ideas? I also have clique installed.

Thanks

Party frame

Am I mistaken in that the old grid had an option to disable the blizzard party frame? I could be wrong but I do know for a fact that while using grid I never had the blizz party/raid frames up. Can anyone help me please, thanks!
