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 5.0 and Mist of Pandaria

Since version 4.5.0, Bartender4 is fully compatible with WoW 5.0 and Mists of Pandaria. Note however that this version is no longer compatible with WoW 4.3/Cataclysm.


  • 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 /bar) 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.

    I'm tired of this fucking addon not locking my keybinds when I have the "lock keys button" checked. I've lost so much fucking games from my keys not locking because of this shitty addon, i'm through with it.

  • #5118

    Will this AddOn be updated for Warlords of Draenor? If yes, will it be updated for the Warlords of Draenor Beta? If yes, is there a build currently working on the Warlords of Draenor Beta? Thanks.

  • #5117

    First of all, I love this Addon.

    But I have 1 Problem.

    Does anyone know why bartender changes my key binds when i change specc?  I use dual profile.

    whenever I change specc all my keybinds are different.

    Any advise or help?

  • #5116

    Loving it. REALLY good mod. Made my UI so much nicer =D

  • #5113

    This thing totally messes up my interface. My backpacks are all jacked up, the up and down arrows to select which action bar i want to use are gone. Idk why they thought this addon should screw up things that didn't need to be messed with but they did. After trying to figure it out for some time I simply uninstalled. I'd rather just keybind the old the way than have to deal with this mess.

  • #5112

    Is it possible to make action bars like FF XIV? If these are already made by someone, could you please send it to me? I'd appreciate it, because last time I tried to use bartender, all my bars were at one place hidden under each other.

  • #5111

    If it possiple for more configable the XP/Reputation Bar in the hight and width, can be useful to create an much better UI. 


  • #5109

    I'm having a couple of issues here. Bartender is changing my pvp que sound to the ridiculously loud pve que sound.. It's also displaying my currently equipped gear when I mouseover gear. Incredibly annoying. Please help.

  • #5108

    I'm having a problem with Bartender4. So I have a few bars that only have 3 buttons active and visible, but I have binds on all 12 of the buttons on the bar. Whenever I log in or relog to another character, the binds on the 9 buttons that aren't shown do not work. However, when I go into the settings and enable all 12 bars, then take it back down to 3, the keybinds on the 9 invisible buttons work fine. Does anybody know how to fix the problem so that I won't have to do this every time I log in or onto a new character?

  • #5107

    Requesting to add a confirmation to copying the settings from one profile to the current.  Accidently clicked one while reading the list and undid about 20 minutes of bar set up in a second.  Much QQ-ing!

  • #5106

    I have upgraded to Warlords of Draenor with a Apple OS X 10.9.3

    When my toon gets on a vehicle, none of the vehicle options show up.  I have tried numerous different combinations with the vehicle bar, and nothing works.  I have to leave the vehicle and skip the quest.  I am thinking the same thing will happen with Dark Moon Fairie.  

    What should I be doing differently so I am able to use the vehicle keys?  Or is this an issue with WoD?


  • #5105

    Can you please make/include the unit frame alterations in bartender? Every other unit frame addon is terrible and uses so much memory. Bartender would be the absolute best addon with this addition.

  • #5102

    When I use Bartender4, I want to have backwards compatability with the default action bars (so that I can play on a computer without the AddOn). It seems that Keybindings for the basic Action Bar maps to 'Bar 1' as you would expect and the keybinds for 'BottomLeft Action Bar' seem to map to 'Bar 6' (I would have thought this was Bar 2 but oh well). The problem is that my keybinds for 'BottomLeft Action Bar' cast the spells correctly but they keybinds do not show up.

  • #5101

    A couple of my bars seem to mirror the actions of one bar (EX: Bar 7 mirrrors the action icons of Bar 1). How do I stop that from happening?

  • #5100

    Hey, I have been trying to get snowfallkeypress "shine" effect on keypress to show up on my icons, but I can only get it to work when I use the default actionbars. Is there a way to get the same effect in bartender or fix the snowfallkeypress addon (only the shine-part) to work with bartender?

    This is the .lua file.
