Grid  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.1.1628
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.

so I've this really annoying bug.

If I set <Solo> to "None" the grid wont show even when I'm grouped inna full raid group etc.
I've to set <Solo> to "Raid 40" everytime I'm inna group.
Kinda lame.

so far

Curse's manual update mirrors seem to have been disabled. The buttons aren't showing on any addon. Does anyone know when the wowinterface version will be updated?

Health Loss not showing up

Anyone else having issues where people's health, as they are damaged is not showing up in Grid? I see them, I see when they are in range, I see that they are aggrod but it is not showing their health drop down so I it is kind of worthless for using with Clique atm. Is it a setting that I just haven't been able to find? I checked the health % report, etc but so far no luck. Used to work great, now not so great.

Not showing raid

Hi everyone, I think i see some other posts here showing that Grid is not working with 3.2 raid configurations.

Is there:

1. A fix? (I went to wow ace but was not sure if it was safe to try out alphas)
2. an alternative other than healbot that will work till Grid comes back to us in full force?

Thank you

Hey there, really nice addon.

I do have the problem that I can not copy the profile I have on one character to another character. It just does not change anything.

Anyone getting "You aren't in a party" spammed?

EDIT: ok, this message happens on spell cast start and interrupt/end with Grid

This is supposedly due to addons writing to some hidden party channel but in 3.2 you're not in that "party" anymore?

Work around, set solo/5 man to what raid size you have. You may need to switch around or /reloadui a bit.
