About BankStack

BankStack is the leading cause of things moving in your bags and bank.


  • sorts your inventory, bank, or guild bank
  • fills incomplete stacks in your bank with items from your inventory
  • compresses your bags by filling incomplete stacks within them
  • puts a chicken in every pot, and pot in every chicken

Quick command reference:

/bankstack : show configuration
/sort : rearrange your bags
/sort bank : rearrange your bank
/stack : fills stacks in your bank from your bags
/stack bank bags : fills stacks in your bags from your bank
/stack {group1} {group2} : fills stacks in group2 from group1
/compress : merges stacks in your bags
/compress bank : merges stacks in your bank
/compress {group} : merges stacks in group
/fill : fill empty slots in your bank from your bags
/fill {group1} {group2} : fill empty slots in group2 from group1

In the /bankstack configuration you'll find sections for "ignore" and "groups". Here's a bit of elaboration on the syntax for those parts.

You need, regrettably, to hear about bag ids first. Each bag has a number which addons use to interact with it.

Your bags are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 Your bank is: -1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

To ignore slot 1 of bag 0, the first slot in your backpack, go to the "ignore" panel and put "0 1" into the textfield and click "okay".

Groups are similar. Let's say that you're a herbalist, and only want to do some things to your herb bags.

You could put this into the "groups" textbox: herbs 3,4 Or this: bankherbs 10,11

You now have two custom groups, herbs and bankherbs. Presumably you keep massive herb bags in slots 3 and 4, and are making lots of money from this because you have the two most expensive bank slots as well (10 and 11).

Having created these groups you could:

/stack herbs bankherbs

Which would fill up stacks in your bank herb bags from stacks in your personal herb bags.

Predefined groups are: bank, bags, guild, all, and a few more. Click the "list" button in the groups config to see these.

There's an experimental faster guild-bank mode which you can enable by typing:

/script BankStack.db.conservative_guild = false

(This mode may not work well yet. We'll see.)

    yes, i have cautious guild option set on and after looking back here I have also set all the timing options all the way up to 1. It still breaks on occaision with that, but if i reloadui it will sometimes fix it. It almost seems that we need to be able to make the advanced settings even slower than 1

    As of 5.2 I can no longer get this Addon to work for my guild bank. Last night (5.1) it worked fine, but today (5.2) it won't work for my guild. Still works great for my bank and for my bags.

    Issue: After I start sorting via /sort guild1 or whichever tab it may be, it prints to chat how many moves it has to make, and then it will start moving but after like 2 or 3, it stops and I have to leave my bank and come back to start again. When it stops it does so while an item is selected so if I click in a bank spot it will drop that item there, but I still have to leave and come back to continue sorting.

  • #217

    Do you have the "cautious guild" option in BankStack's advanced settings turned on or off?

  • #210

    I'm having the same issue even after the update to BankStack.   :(

  • #211

    just wanting to confirm same issue here, I really hope it gets fixed <3 this addon.


    DERP: just saw it's been updated

    Update: even after updating sorting no longer works and does Alaghoth says, starts sorting and then suddenly stops and shows you have an item selected on your cursor, trying to sort again repsonds with process already running.

    Just wondering if this is getting an update with 5.2, as it seems to not be working for me anymore and I use this addon religiously.  Please please please update this, thank you!

  • #207

    Seeing as how this addon hasn't been updated, I'm not sure I'll get any help with my problem (but someone else might have an answer!). The addon is sorting fine in that everything is in order the way it should be (except for two low level crafting materials that are ahead of mop mats only because they're blue >: | ). My problem is that it sorts high mats to low mats in my guild bank, from the left of the tab to the right. I want the low level mats to be on the left hand side, and I can get it to do this.... but the result is everything is on the right hand side of the tab, instead of the left.... if I am making any sense. I would upload a screen shot if i knew how :/

    Hey great mod! Just wondering if it's possible for it to ignore rarity and just sort by item type? For my guild bank I want all items of the same type grouped but it seems to be seperating them by rarity, eg: epic gems are mixed in with epic armor and then other gems aren't with them.

  • #206

    I like this suggestion aswell.

    Other thing I would like to, I saw that bacnkstack does alot unnessary moves while sorting. For example, when I got got 20 same kind of bags in my bags and everything is already sorted by addon. Then I move the first bag into embty area by one single move. Addond sorts that out with 19 moves instead the one I made.

    I'm loving this addon! My guildie found it a couple of weeks ago, after I mentioned "I wish there was a way to compress all the crap in my Bagnon bag and put the free space at the bottom."  I really should have thought to check here myself, lol.

    One question/request I might put in here; would it be at all possible to move the minimap button to the top of the bag itself?  My minimap is getting a bit cluttered, I can never seem to make slidebar work, and to me it makes a little more sense to have it there, or at least put in an option to put it there instead of on the minimap.

  • #203

    Bagnon has a space at the bottom of its frame, to the left of the gold display, which accumulates DataBroker plugins (which BankStack's minimap icon is an example of). Just click the left/right arrows until you see the BankStack one, and clicking on it there will behave exactly how it does on the minimap.

  • #204

    Ahh, there it is, thank you! :)

  • #200

    I used to be able to use the following command to sort a single tab of my guild bank:

    /sort guild 3

    Now when I use that command, it sorts like ... the first THREE bank tabs. It's really frustrating. I have my tabs sorted out by type, I deposit them manually, and then I used to just run the /sort command to organize each tab. I screwed up most of my tabs because I didn't catch that it changed how it sorts.

    Is the "/sort guild #" no longer available, or what's changed?

  • #201

    You just need to not include the space. `/sort guild3` works, `/sort guild 3` doesn't. (Actually, `/sort guild 3` *works*, it just doesn't do what you want; it sorts the entire guild bank, then your third equipped bag.)

  • #199

    This may be me missing something or just not understanding groups properly but here is what i want to do....

    I would like to sort the guild bank putting ore and herbs on the second tab.  cloth and leather on the third tab. etc...

    Can this be done?  

    I love the functionality of this addon and will continue to use it, just would like to get the described functionality when i do a /sort guild.
