About Bartender4

Bartender4 is a full ActionBar replacement mod. It provides you with all the features needed to fully customization most aspects of your action and related bars.

WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor

The latest version of Bartender (4.6.0) is fully compatible with WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor!


  • Support for all Action Bars and all related bars
    • 10 Action Bars
    • Stance Bar
    • Pet Bar
    • Bag Bar
    • Micro Menu
    • XP/Reputation Bar
  • All Bars are fully customizable (Scale, Alpha, Fade-Out settings, ...)
  • Very flexible and customizable Show/Hide driver based on Macro Conditions
  • Additional Layout and Paging settings for Action Bars
    • Page all bars based on Stance or Modifier
    • Possess Bar support
    • Custom State driver support with Macro Conditions
  • Options to hide specific elements of the buttons (Macro Text, HotKey, more could be added on demand)
  • StickyFrames support
  • Masque/ButtonFacade support!
  • Easy Hotkey Binding using KeyBound
  • Options to control the hiding of the default blizzard artwork (you might still want that to be displayed..)


Q: How do i access the Configuration?
A: You can open the configuration with the Slash Commands (/bt or /bartender) or through the Bartender4 LDB plugin.

Q: Can Bartender4 import settings from Bartender3?
A: No. Those two mods are too different to be able to import settings.

Q: Where are my keybindings? And how do i bind new keys?
A: BT3 Keybindings will not be ported over either, you have to use the new KeyBound to re-bind your keys. You can access KeyBound by its slash command (/kb) or through the button in the BT4 config. Hover a button, press key → voila!

Q: CyCircled Support? I like my button skins? :(
A: No reason to cry! There is a sparkling new skinning addon/library out there! ButtonFacade is way easier to work with as a action-bar author, and its easier to write skins for it too! Alot of cyCircled Skins have already been ported to ButtonFacade, and more are on their way! After installing ButtonFacade just use its configuration to change the skin of the BT4 buttons (/bf)

Q: How do i disable the snapping of the bars?
A: Currently, you can temporarily override the snapping by holding down the Shift Key while moving your bars, or uncheck the option in the popup when your bars are unlocked.

    The server crashed and now all of my bartender profile settings are gone. 8|  Where could I find them?

  • #5589

    Maybe im missing it.........but is it possible to change the height and width (not scale) of the XP bar?

    If not, is there a good XP bar addon which allows that?

  • #5588

    THe vehicle exit button isnt working for me since the update. Is it bugged or am i doing something wrong

  • #5586

    disabling the Bartender skinning in ElvUI AddOn Skins did the trick ! ty ! :)

  • #5587

    tnx for the tip mate!

  • #5585

    I have been using this addon for some time now, and haven't had any trouble.   However, yesterday when I logged into the game, all my profiles were wiped out.   All of my toons were back to default settings.  I tried changing one toon's profile and then loading that profile on other toons, but it doesn't load the saved profile.  Has something changed?

  • #5584

    Just started using BT4 and I can't see how to populate the Extra Action Button. I can see the button in green and move it around but where do I go to fill it with an action? Thanks


  • #5583

    How can I see howmuch the recharge cooldown of my spells are? (For instance a Shamans Lava Lash with the Echo of the Elements talent) I see howmuch the cooldown is when I used all of my Lava Lashes, but not howmuch the recharge time is. It appears as if I just have 1 charge and nothing is recharging.

    I'm playing on a private server 5.4.2. patch, I cant seem to make it work. what version should i download, since I only see 5.4.0 versions for this bartender4


  • #5576

    Since patch 6.2 my character icon resets to it's standard position in the top left every single time I relog or login. So I have to unlock that frame and place it at the spot I want (i.e. a bit left and below of my char.) every single time.!

    The strange thing is, the target and focus frames don't reset. (they are placed right and a bit below of my char.)   They stay exactly at the spot where I have placed and locked them.!  

    We can rule several things out here.

    1. I am the system admin.

    2. I am the owner of the World of Warcraft dir. and subdirs.  (Also no  game errors. I checked everything to be sure.)

    3. Nothing in it is read only.

    4. Everything is up to date.


    Is someone else having the same problem? Or does anyone did have the same and has a solution? (It would be a shame if I had to delete bartender.)

    ¡The Devil may care, but I Bloody Don't.!

  • #5577

    got the same issues

  • #5575

    Having a similar issue as other people posting recently, I'm using both Elvui and Bartender (Elvui doesn't offer enough bars, go figure) and random Icons on my bars are dissappearing. The actual item/ability/macros are still there, just the icon textures are dissappearing and being replaced with black squares. Reloading sometimes works, but most of the time it will either cause more icons to dissappear or switch witch icons go away. Elvui's bars are unaffected, though. I've tried switching to earlier versions of Bartender/Elvui, but nothing seems to be fixing this issue...

  • #5580

    If you're having trouble using ElvUI and Bartender, disable the Bartender skinning in ElvUI AddOn Skins OR download the Alpha release of ElvUI AddOn Skins.  Fixed it right up for me.  It's not an issue with Bartender.

  • #5574

    I am having a very specific problem on bartender4. Here's the problem, the different profiles only change the look of each profile but do not allow you to change keybinding locations between profiles. If they do, PLEASE show me. 

    EX: I want to have an [Arena Hpal] Profile with bar 1 being keybound as such.

    1 2 3 4 5 6

    And on profile [Dungeon Hpal] i want bar 1 key bound as such.

    Q W E R T Y

    I cannot figure out how to make it change between toons and even in the same toon. Bar 1 is the same accross all profiles. I have tried changing the bartender keybind, character specific ETC. It's really hindering the functionability of the addon.
