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.


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.

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.

Hi, i have an issue with the german language version of grid. I use the 5.2.0.1600 version and if I want to add the Buff "Geisthülle" (Spirit Shell), which is the Absorbshield a Discipline Priest can stack, it only shows the Buff which allows you to cast the Shells in the Dropdown-Menu. In other Words: please could you add the Spell-Id 114908 to the known Buffs, or is there any way to add a Aura by typing in the Spell-Id instead of the Name?

Cheers

The health bar is, well, the health bar -- it's the bar that fills the entire frame and depletes as the unit loses health. The healing bar is the semi-transparent bar that appears overlaid on the health bar when the unit has healing being cast on them.

Hey, thank you very much for your reply!

Think it was an issue with the anchoring. I think I solved it by resetting anchor and position. Seems to work just fine for now. Thanks again, much appreciated!

Grid moving when I don't want it to.

Hi!

I've set Grid to use the same layout for all group types (that is, 40 man group). Yet, when I move from doing 25 man raids to going solo or doing BGs, my grid will move out of place. What do I do to make it stop?

Thank you!

You'd need to set up a separate profile for each type of group, and then switch between them. There may be a plugin that will automatically switch the profiles for you.

Offhand I'd say it sounds like you have an ancient plugin that's not compatible with current versions of Grid and/or WoW, but without more information there's not much I can do for you. Please read the bug report instructions for some troubleshooting steps to follow to narrow down the cause of the problem.

If that doesn't resolve the issue (eg. if you find the problem is an outdated plugin, then updating or removing the plugin will fix the problem) then please open a bug ticket with the info requested on that page so I can look into it. If you don't have a WowAce/Curse account and really don't want to create one, you can post a follow-up here with the info, but it's much easier for me to keep track of issues if you can submit an actual ticket.
