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.


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.

Does the Grid project accept donations? I see you don't have a Donate button, unlike a number of the other addon projects. I'd like to be able offer some small token of support beyond a written thank you.

Grid is one of a handful of addons that, as far as I'm concerned, has perfectly nailed its niche. Between the no-bloat core and the almost "if you can imagine it, you can have it" extendability, I've never found myself wistfully wishing I could disable something I don't need, or wanting for a feature I do. Frankly it does its job so well that I'm just not sure if I'd be willing to continue healing if I were ever forced to fallback on the alternatives that manage to do too much and too little all at once. Bottom-line: Grid's minimalist core + plugins for key-but-situational features approach is just a superior design to the all-in-one feature rigidity of the other raid frame addons.

Well, I guess this morphed into a note anyway, so-- thank you!

And for the plugin authors who make all the extra features available-- thank you too!

OK I have a question. Now is there a way to keep the frame the same size no matter if your solo or in a 40man group and adjust the unit frames to fit that particular frame. Like if your in a 40 man raid the unit frames will adjust themselves to a smaller size in order to fit the assigned frame width and height, and will make the unit frames config if your in a solo, or in a 5 man party. I just want the frame size to be the same size for each different type of party/raid I encounter, so I am not spending 5 minutes adjusting everything before a raid or a battleground.

I think there's a plugin that does that, or you could set up different profiles for each group size and switch between them (either by hand through the menu, by hand with a macro, or automatically with a plugin). It's not something the core will do, though.

Not currently, no. Given the fact that I'm not the original author, and the number of people who contribute, or have contributed, to Grid's development and maintenance, I don't think it would be appropriate for me to take donations just for myself, and coming up with a fair way to split donations between everyone involved would just be too much work. We appreciate the thought, though.

That said, if you use the Curse Client to update Grid, all of the listed project members get author reward points, which we can redeem for Amazon.com gift cards.

1. It's "Grid", a word, not "GRID", an acronym/initialism.

2. I have no intention of bloating Grid's download size with a bunch of extra textures. If you want more, and don't want to depend on other addons, download and install SharedMedia. Its sole function is to contain additional textures (and fonts) and register them with LibSharedMedia-3.0, which makes them available to Grid and all other addons using the same library.

plz plz plz add group and subgroup options for the auras list (buffs/debuffs). I use Grid since BC and my buffs/debuffs list is getting bigger and bigger. It would be really helpful if I could add my own groups and subgroups into that list, for example I'd like to add a PvPdebuffs group and into that PvPdebuffs group I would add a subgroup for every Class and into those subgroups I could add the debuffs of those classes... and on top of that if I could also use the whole group or subgroup as a status that would be really awesome ^^

Diagonal groups?

I logged in after the 4.0.3 patch (which wasn't really changing anything). And grid is suddenly displaying groups on a diagonal. I had horizontal groups set originally, then I tried going back to vertical, and instead of group 1 being stacked, the first member woudl be in it's normal place, but the 2nd member would be down below under group 2.. It would look something like this (forgot to screenshot it, and am at work atm)

1 2 3 4 5
--1 2 3 4 5
-----1 2 3 4 5
--------1 2 3 4 5
----------1 2 3 4 5

So it was pretty near impossible to use due to this. Any tips?
Thanks
