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.

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!

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.

On my priest, I wanted to use an indicator to show if everyone in the group has my Fort and Shadow Protection buffs. I was using an icon indicator as the center icon, but the issue is that I also have pets turned on, and since pets don't get buffed, the center icon always remains on their frames. Is there anyway to exclude pets from a "missing x" indicator?

No. Blizzard's secure group header system does not support that. Ask some guild members to group with you for 5 minutes, or join AV and stand in the spawn cave.

Use Clique.

Find someone to update GridStatusHealthPercent, or accept that health percentages are completely worthless for healing and just use the deficit that's actually useful for choosing the correct heal. If you're not healing, then health numbers really don't matter at all.

Is it posible to make preview of grid raid frames? For example I am not in group and want to see how i looked like in raid. I want to put in my circle action bars like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-QpdFH7Xr8 but I dont know what size should I make. Also does grid have option so I could remove unwanted effects like with Decursive addon?

Hello guys, I have a problem with my Grid frames, when ever I enter a battleground or a raid the fames resets to the middle of the screen. Can I somehow change this so it always stay in the same position?

Grid has nothing to do with casting spells, or the "action in progress" error. Grid also has absolutely no control over whether or not the WoW game client gives it accurate information about incoming healing. Try adjusting the lag tolerance setting in the WoW game client's options menu.

Grid contains no code which changes settings without user action. Either you have some other addon (probably some crappy premade UI package) forcibly overwriting your settings, or there is something wrong with your hard drive and/or operating system and/or WoW installation that is preventing WoW from correctly saving your addon settings between login sessions.

I recently returned to wow so I'm not sure when this was changed but when using Grid and "spamming" heals so that I click the heal before i can actually queue it and getting he "another action is in progress" error the incoming heal (both the text and the bar) will stop displaying. If i just cast a spell and let it finish, or even just wait between spells enough so that i don't get the error I'll have no problems with the inc heals, but if i try to cast it too soon the inc heals indicators just disappear. I'm guessing it has something to do with grid now using the built in blizzard inc heals function, as in previous version i did not have this issue. Is there an option to disable this ?

It's in the same place it's always been: Grid > Frame > Center Text Length

You are running an outdated plugin that tries to add options to the Frame section, but has still not been updated for the changes to Grid's configuration window. Update or replace your Grid plugins.

Can't for the life of me find where to change the name length for the center text object to more than 4 characters in this new version, any help? ;D

Also the bottom of my "Frame" window looks like its overlapping (fresh install of wow with just Grid 4.1.0.1441) so maybe that option is down there somewhere, I just can't get to it.

Screenshot here of how it looks for me:

There isn't one. If the timer spiral makes the icon too hard to see, don't turn it on. I have no plans to add options to micromanage the timer spiral's opacity, etc.

Never really noticed it before, my eye sight may really be getting worse from all the games I play.

If anyone knows how to make this happen post here, I'll be checking back, thanks!
