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.

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. Alpha versions from WowAce are development snapshots, are not officially supported, and may be buggy or broken, delete your settings, or crash your game. Copies of Grid obtained from anywhere other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and WowAce/Curse 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!

Textures are provided by third-party addons like SharedMedia. Some other addons (*cough*Skada*cough*) waste disk space and bandwidth by including 10 MB of texture files; Grid does not do this, and only provides the Gradient texture. If you had some other textures available before, and they're gone, it's probably because you removed whichever addon was providing them. Re-enable or re-install any addons you recently disabled or uninstalled, or install a dedicated texture package like SharedMedia.

Hi,

For some reason my frame textures are limited to Blizzard's textures only, textures like Armory, etc is lost.

I've been inside a raid instance maybe 10 times since WotLK, so I can't speak from experience on that, but if the three shield levels are shown as buffs or debuffs, and have unique names, then you can just type them in as new aura statuses in Grid. If they aren't shown as (de)buffs, or they don't have unique names, or you prefer a more detailed view, you can use the GridStatusAncientBarrier plugin.

One question I forgot to ask - does Grid handle the Malkorok fight for healers? I'm talking about the three shield levels that show up on the standard frames. Do I add those myself or is there a plugin that works for it?

I'd suggest just using Grid for a while, and only add more plugins for specific things you noticed were missing for your playstyle. I never needed any other plugins during my ~6 years healing on my shaman, though I did write a plugin back in TBC to combine all of the healing reduction debuffs into one status so I could save time on typing them all in.

Also, if you use click-casting (eg. shift-click on a player's frame to cast Flash of Light on them) you'll want to install Clique. It's not specifically a Grid plugin, but will add click-casting to all the unit frames in your UI, including Grid.
I love clique, right now I use it to utilize my mouse and more keybinds. I actually heal with mouseover macros, but I've considered click casting. Might have to try it soon!

Anyway. Thank you so much for the reply as always Phanx, I appreciate it. While looking for options, yours was the most helpful. I will be installin Grid today along with that plugin for role icons. I look forward to using it!

Again thank you so much!

Hello again Phanx! I keep forgetting you're the author of Grid along with all of your other awesome addons!

I have never used Grid for healing... I've used Vuhdo and Grid 2, so I am wondering if I would need many plugins to go with Grid? I play an hpal, I'd like to watch the typical pally buffs (hands, EF, beacon) and forbearance on my frames, and I also want to see debuffs I can cure and role icons. Does this all come standard with Grid? Are there any plugins I'd need to grab?

I'm just a little worn out by searching for healing addons... needing some help and advice!

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?

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

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.
