Grid  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.2.1699
by: Phanx, Greltok, Pastamancer
Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.
The compact grid of unit frames 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.

Please do not use the Bug/Feature buttons to the right, or send me PMs to ask for help, report problems, or request features. Use the links below instead!

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 did not download Grid from this page, do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Copies of Grid obtained from anywhere other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and WowAce/Curse, or through the Curse Client or Minion, may be outdated or modified, and are not supported at all.
Found a bug?
Please 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 all World of Warcraft localizations. It is currently translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, 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 quite cumbersome. To make the process easier, you can use the Export function on WowAce, copy the exported data into your text editor, fill in your translations, and then paste them back into WowAce using the Import function.
Credits
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. Mikk designed the icon. jlam added some advanced options for auras. Greltok has helped a lot with bugfixing. Finally, lots of people have contributed translations!

Can you provide a screenshot? I'm not really sure what you mean by this.

Also not sure what you mean by "cluster system". Can you be more specific?

Hey - long time grid lover, 5.4 update gave me a bit of extra background outside of the frame with seemingly no way to remove it, had to revert to previous.
Also wondering if possible for a built-in cluster system? Can't manage to get any of the cluster plugins working, looks like they've all been abandoned.

No, the way Grid is written does not support having multiple, separate layout frames.

[Question/Request] Modules for Grid

Hi everybody... ty again for this addon... I'm using with all my chars...

Idk if exists or not, but my question is: any way or posibility to put Grid layout with separate modules, I means, a different frame for each one (by class, pets, helaers/tanks)...

if that exists I really appreciate it.

i apologize if you already answered this, i did not see a search function for the comment section.

i know i can track my renews on people via icon but can i add a countdown timer on top of this icon via grid without adding another addon?

i know i can track earth shield charges this way but was unsure if the same can be done with timers and hots.

thank you for your time.

Remember, guys, the bug tracker is the appropriate place to report bugs -- not comments, which I may not see immediately, but will immediately forget and never read again when I do see them.

Version 5.3.0.1606
  • Fixed errors caused by missing files

After updating my frames are entirely black and under "status" options I have almost nothing to choose from anymore. No auras, health bars, Raid Debuffs, etc. Just about 4 things remain there. I have to revert back to the previous version to fix it.

Grid can only track buffs by their name. It doesn't support spell IDs. For spells that have the same name as another spell, the auto-complete dropdown will only show one, but it doesn't actually matter which one. If you type "Geisthülle" then Grid will activate the status for any buff named "Geisthülle".

It sounds like you can just type "Geisthülle" and not worry about the spellIDs being different for the casting spell and the buff, since Grid only cares about the name, not the spellID.

If there are actually two (or more) buffs with the name "Geisthülle" but you only want to see one of them, then you will need to use a plugin that can track buffs by their spellID, such as GridStatusAurasExt.

Edit: Also, the list of spells shown in the auto-complete dropdown isn't hardcoded, so there is no list I can add anything to. The first time you show the dropdown (per login session) it just asks the server for the names of all spells by their spellID. First it asks about spellID 1, then spellID 2, and keeps going until 5000 spellIDs in a row failed to return a name. Since the dropdown is designed to help users type the names of spells, not spellIDs, any duplicate names are collapsed to a single copy of the name.
