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.

Grid does not include any code that hides, modifies, or otherwise affects any default UI elements. You should be able to hide the default UI's raid frames by opening the raid manager window and unchecking all of the groups. If you do not want to see either the raid frames or the raid manager, you can use an addon like HideRaidFrames or RaidHide to permanently hide all of the default UI's raid-related elements.

If you think an addon is interfering with the ability to hide any default UI elements, it isn't Grid, and you should be able to confirm that by disabling all addons other than Grid, and then reenabling your other addons one by one (or in small batches if you have a lot) until the problem reappears.

You may also wish to try resetting your default UI settings. You can do this by logging out and deleting the following file:

World of Warcraft > WTF > Account > [Your Account Name] > Config.WTF

Note that this will also reset your game's sound and video settings.

Am I the only one who's not able to hide Bliz's raid frame while using Grid? For some reason they're always there.

If you still can't get it to work after double-checking those specific settings, just reset to the default settings for the whole addon and start over.

FYI, the Border Color option on the Layout tab controls the color of the border for Grid's background frame, not individual unit frames. Nothing on the Layout tab affects the appearance of the individual unit frames.



did /grid > Status > Your Target > Enable then discovered that my priority is set to 0.

thanks Mr Phalanx for your help

i even Grid > Layout and change the border colour, but still no colours when i click on my target box,

am i missing out on something?

Since neither of those things stack, I would argue that knowing exactly when they are going to expire is not nearly important enough to add the UI clutter required to convey that information. Every priest I've ever talked to in any of my raiding guilds over the years has agreed with this position.

If you really think you need to know when your non-stacking buffs are expiring, there are a large number of HoT-specific plugins that can be configured to change color or do something else when a buff is about to expire.

Assign the statuses for your HoTs to the center icon indicator, and check that the center icon cooldown and stack text options are enabled (they are enabled by default). Or, look at any of the dozen or so plugins that either add more icon indicators, or add special statuses that track your HoTs in different ways.

I'm a priest, can you suggest a better way to notify that Renew, or Weakened Soul is about to fade from a target? I don't want icons covering up the whole middle for something like that...A progress bar like X-Perl, or blinking indicators would be perfect.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to using Grid, but have heard great things about it and want to give it a try. Is there a Grid module that will allow me to have Druid HoT icons rather than colored dots/text? If I want to visually see HoT icons (stacks and countdown), are my other main options limited to VuhDo and Healbot? Thanks for your help.

No. Blinking is one of the most annoying UI behaviors imaginable. Whatever you're trying to do is either unnecessary, or can be better accomplished through some other means.

Your post is pretty much useless as it stands. Which indicator(s) have you assigned the Out Of Range status to? Are any other statuses exhibiting similar behavior? If so, which ones, and which indicator(s) are they assigned to? Does the problem occur when all other addons are disabled? Does the problem occur after you've switched to a new Grid profile with default settings? Since the problem is visible, screenshots would also be useful.

Re: grid role

Re: groups by role

Sort of. You can't filter layout groups by role (see SecureGroupHeaders.lua for a full list of allowed filtering/sorting options), but you can:

a) Mark tanks using the Main Tank status in the raid panel, and use one of the layouts that shows tanks separately. Doesn't help with healers, though.

b) Show everyone in a single layout group, and sort it first by role, then by name. This would require editing an existing layout's code, or writing a new one.

c) Filter layout groups by name, and have another addon update the name lists as roles change. This would require editing an existing plugin, or writing a new one.

One of the existing layout plugins may be relevant, but if not, you could post a request on the forums here or on the WowAce forums. I don't have time to write any code for you.

Re: Tranquility

Assigning the buff to the Center Icon indicator on the Status options tab, and enabling the Icon Stack Count on the Frame options tab, should work. If not, make sure you typed the buff name exactly as it appears in the tooltip. If you've double-checked all of those things and it still isn't working, follow the instructions on the main page for reporting a bug, and attach your Grid saved variables file to your ticket.
