About AdiBags

AdiBags displays the content of your bags in one view, distributed into several sections using smart filters.

It is heavily inspired by Nargiddley’s Baggins.

Configuration is available through Blizzard addon panel, /adibags chat command or right-clicking on the LDB plugin.

Important note about localized filters: some filters rely on translations from LibBabble-Inventory-3.0 so if some of them behave strangely in your locale, please take a look at the library translation status.


Important notice: since v1.6.12-beta-1, AdiBags embeds BugGrabber, an error catching addon. Please check the error is really about AdiBags before reporting them here. I suggest installing BugSack to catch the errors.

Please report any bug or error using the wowace bug tracker (your Curse account works there). The comments section below is not meant to report and track bugs. I won’t reply to bug reports in the comment section anymore.

Some words about submitting bug reports:

  • I do not care about “it doesn’t work, fix it!” messages. I need to know how it failed and a way to reproduce the bug so I can test it and make sure I fix it.
  • Bug reports are not in the “fire and forget” kind of things. I may have to ask you some details.
  • Please check all existing tickets and the “known issues” section below before submitting new ones. Duplicate reports will be rejected on sight.

WoWace forum thread


Most of these features may be configured. Check out the configuration panel ! (using the /adibags chat command or clicking on the bag icon, you have any LDB display)

  • Smart filters are used to distribute items into several sections, including:
    • Item sets of the Blizzard’s gear manager (one section per set),
    • Junk items (whitelist and blacklist available),
    • Quest items,
    • Equipment (items your character can wear),
    • Sections based on item category: trade goods, consumables, recipes, ...
    • Manual filtering (drag and drop items on section header, or add new section from the configuration panel),
    • Ammunition and warlocks’ soul shards,
    • Free space.
  • Smart item sorting inside each section.
  • Smart section layout ; change the setting “Automatic layout update” to control the frequency of updates.
  • Track new items ; use the [N] button resets the “new” flag.
  • Display slot type.
  • Bag tidy ; click on the [T] button.
  • Hide some sections, using the [V] button.
  • Name-based search.
  • Equipped bags (click on the bag icon in the top left corner),
  • Display character money in the backpack.
  • Display character tokens in the backpack.
  • LDB data source, displaying free space.
  • Two bag placement modes (choose one in the configuration panel):
    • Anchored: the bags expand from an anchor towards the center of the screen. The anchor can be unlocked and moved.
    • Manual: move the bags by dragging their title.

Separate modules

I have written two separate modules for AdiBags:

Tips & tricks

  • you can create your own sections using the “manual filter” in filter configuration. You can then drag and drop items on section titles to reassign them ; this works for any section.
  • if you want to highlight new items without putting them into a specific section, edit the “new items” filter priority to put it at the end of the filter list.

Known issues

  • All items are always news / new items are not detected / item sets are not working: AdiBags is (ab)using the game API to emulate some features that is was not meant to do. It relies on some timings that depend on your computer speed, your realm server and/or your network connection (because the game is inherently asynchronous). In some cases, it just does not work and there is almost nothing I can do because I cannot reproduce the bug to diagnose it and to try to fix it. So basically, if the new item or item set filters are not working for you, there is little chance I can fix it.
  • Protected action/addon blocked error: they sometimes happen with AdiBags. Even though my effort, I can not reproduce these. Blizzard taint reports are very buggy, often blaming the wrong addon. As such they are pretty much useless.
  • Please note that prospecting, disenchanting or milling can create new items (e.g. that were not in your inventory yet). This can cause the whole bag to be updated. In this case, the items that were under your mouse cursor may move around. There is no easy solution for this so be cautious.

Things that likely will not be implemented

Anything else than the existing “all-in-one” views

AdiBags has been built around, and optimized for, the idea of the “all-in-one” view. Doing anything would require to redesign big parts of the addons, especially the layout code that is quite complex at the first place.

Anything that requires to scan item tooltips

Tooltip scanning is quite CPU-consuming and above all requires asynchronous programming, since item tooltips would not always be available at the time AdiBags should use them. This would raise the complexity of bag filtering be an order of magnitude and turn AdiBags into a CPU hog.

Some examples what requires to scan the item tooltips:

  • detecting the kind and state of binding: unbound, soulbound, bind-on-pickup, bind-on-equip…
  • detecting already known spells/pets/recipes or faction/race/level/skill/class restrictions ; basically any “red text” in the tooltip.

Guild bank

AdiBags presents you a nice view of your bags but actually they are in a complete mess. With AdiBags, there is no need and no way to tidy up the items in the actual bags. Guilds usually try to keep their bank tidy. What would happen if some people in a guild used AdiBags for the guild bank ? Well, they would mess up the guild bank content and people NOT using AdiBags would have to deal with that mess. I can hear the screams from there. So that is why I will not implement guild bank.

Alt bags and bank

AdiBags is not an alt bags/bank viewer. If you want to keep track of what your alt owns, I suggest using an addon like BagSync.

Full bag skinning

Basic skinning is available using LibSharedMedia-1.0: you can choose the bag font, background and border, as well as the color.

Comprehensive in-game filter/section editor

According to my experience with Baggins, comprehensive editor is awful to write as an author and awful to use as an user. Hence I focus on creating filters that have a smart built-in behavior and only a few options. I try to avoid the 20% of features that would require 80% of development effort.

    can i somehow tell the addon to put all soulbound in one category with mini categories like armour and that stuff and other category with every item that is not soulbound in another category with mini categories?

  • #518

    Oh I just noticed in his Feedback section, he is no longer responding to bug reports here. Need to go to the bug tracker site.

    going there now.

  • #517

    In the past couple weeks anything 'new' i add to my bag doesnt have the 'new' sparlke or even show up until i close and re-open my bags. Any ideas out there? i have not changed any of my addons and are all up todate so i cant see a conflict happening all of a sudden there.

  • #516

    Hello and thank you for this awesome mod!

    As far as I am concerned it is the absolute best bag mod out there....sadly it seems to bunk up the reforge display on my set up, not sure if this is an issue for all users or just with my paticular setup.

    In any case looking for feedback on the issue and a fix if there is one, thanks again for this great mod I do not know how I have gone without it for so long. :)



  • #515

    Does anyone know of any mods that conflict with Adibags and cause it to display the bug grabber error message over and over? Adibags is one of my favorite mods if not THEE favorite so be willing to get rid of almost any other mod that is causing the problem. Seems to happen most often in raids. Not trying to pester the creator just if any other users found out the conflicting mod and could share the info. Thanks.

    I don't know what causes it, but I get this all the time. In fact, my adibags winds up disabled during raids because I can't place raid markers with it enabled.  It's very frustrating. 

  • #514

    Is it possible to set your own categories?  That would be awesome!

  • #513

    can this addon delete the junk

  • #512

  • #508

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put in a NOT Bound/BoE section!!  BoA section would be helpful too!!  Keep having all my gear, in its groups of course, with my BoP and BoE all mixed up! PLEASE make it so they're separate or tell me how I can filter it! THNX!

  • #507

    Do you think it would be terrible hard to add colorization to the section names? That would help a lot visualizing stuff.

  • #506

    I love AdiBags; thanks for writing and maintaining it!

    Here's a weird bug I found: If I put an "Ornate Weapon" ( in my bags, it's always in the "New" section.  I can click the "N" button as many times as I like, but Ornate Weapons are always new.

    Nothing major, easily ignorable, but I thought I'd let you know.

    Thanks again!
