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.

About patch 6.0.2

Blizzard has introduced a lot of new inventory features with the patch 6.0.2. I (Adirelle, AdiBags’ author) have absolutely no control over the way these built-in features work. It is all or nothing: either AdiBags uses a feature as is, either I have to code it myself. I had some of these features built into AdiBags in the past, but this was clumsy, using the API in a way that it was not meant to, and ultimately buggy for some users. So I decided to remove my code in favor of the built-in ones, even if it meant a minor degration of the original feature. If Blizzard improves some of these features in the future, AdiBags will automatically benefit from these improvements.

So, in short:

  • AdiBags now uses the built-in “new itemAPI, though it only detects looted/crafted/reward items. I added another module to highlight you what moves in bags to compensate for the loss of full item detection.
  • AdiBags now uses the built-in “sort bags“ feature. It may cause a spike of lag but works very quickly and does the job right.
  • AdiBags fully supports the reagent bank, including the built-in “deposit all reagents” feature. I know it moves enchanters’ velum to the reagent tab, but hopefully Blizzard will fix this.


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.

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),
    • 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 sorting: left-click on the [S] button; right-click toggles auto-sorting, which sorts the bag on close.
  • 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

  • New items detection does not work like it did before 1.8: Ihis is normal. I switched to the NewItems API that Blizzard has added in patch 6.0. This API does not work for bank nor items coming from the bank or the mailbox, but it does not having the timing issue my code had.
  • Opening the bank or closing my bag cause lag spike: this is an know issue with Blizzard bag sorting. For now, it is called every time you close your bag with auto-sorting enabled. I am working on a solution to sort bags only if their content actually changed.
  • 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.

    my problem is that i set the row with in my bagpack to 9 and it doesnt work. I want it the same as my bank window. How can i fix this? Thanks



    That option is the width of each "block" of items, not the entire width of the backpack. Just slide it to the left a little bit and will thin out.

    Is there a way to disable the right clicking on an empty space opening the options menu?

    Thank you very mutch guys for the update!! I can't play WoW without Adibags!!!! I love you Embarassed

  • #315

    I've been using t-bag for years, and this is the first addon to draw my attention. I like being able to quickly group things without having to micromanager every item and category (like ArkInventory would have you do). I like the gear set options also! Keep up the good work.

  • #312

    Why did the sorting layout change in adibags and is there anyway to revert said change? It seems like item categories are in blocks, rather than horizontal lines. I really can't stand this change.

    (Using Adibags 1.6)

    Picture for reference: change

  • #310

    I came to try AdiBags today as a temporary fix because ArkInventory was broken. I think I actually prefer AdiBags!  One thing that might make me go back to ArkInv, however, is the ability to see other characters' bags and, most importantly, gold! I liked being able to see how much gold I have on a server, not just on one character.

    Is this functionality already in AdiBags and I am just missing it?  Please tell me yes and I'll be a loyal AdiBags supporter. :D

  • #308

    Can't figure out how to hide curency, or at least currency I really don't care about... any tips or hints?

  • #309

    I just removed the CurrencyFrame.lua from the folder and all of them are gone.  I had so many currencies that it was diffucult to see how much gold I had.

  • #311

    Just configure the currency plugin to hide currencies you do not care about.

  • #307

    Thank you for this addon! It's amazing, and since baggins seems to be behind the times it's a lifesaver for me and it actually works better than baggins. 

    Now if only someone would make a text inventory add on my life would be complete. 

  • #306

    How do I prevent AdiBags from re-organizing its window when I'm disenchanting, etc?

    I had it working pretty good before the last set of updates.

  • #305

    When I visit my bank, the Adibags UI opens, but so does the standard Blizzard bag UI. Only for the bank bags though, not my equipped bags.

  • #304

    Thank you so this addon, I am one of those people who loot everything and ask questions later player but my inventory gotten so mixed up that I was afraid to throw out anything without reserving at least an hour to organzing what's what. Adibags takes the guesswork out of cleaning house and now I have more than 10 empty slots for the first time in weeks and made 100 spare gold!
