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 Vehicle bar doesn't show up at all for me, 'm in the outlands trying to do the quest where you ride the gryphon and drop booms trouble is the bar doesn't show up so i can click the button that actually drops the bombs, I've tried pressing keys 1-0 just to see if its activating but not showing and it doesn't do anything also if i get in a vehicle there's no exit button to get out. other than that I'm not have any of the microbar issues other people are talking about. any chance of a fix as i like bt4 and don't want to have to switch to a different addon.
  • #3637
    The first issue is because there are no vehicles in Outland. That quest sticks you on a flight path and gives you an inventory item that you have to use to drop the bombs.

    No idea on the second one.
  • #3628
    can't get it to work.

    I've been using Bartender for years and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately I'm not sure if I'll be able to continue using it which I regret to say. The pet bar seems to be broken in that it doesn't show all of my minion's skills. It appears that the skills that are not shown are the new minion skills that were introduced with cataclysm. They are:

    Imp: Single Magic and Flee
    Succubus: Whiplash
    Fel Guard: Axe Toss, Felstorm, Legion Strike and Pursuit

    Is there a hotfix that can be applied to this with spell IDs or anything? I really do not want to have to switch addons. Bartender is the shit!
  • #3621
    How do you get the VehicleBar to work? I have the Blizzard VehicleUI hidden and Bartender VehicleBar enabled and when i jump in a vehicle i get no bars at all.
  • #3622
    Note: With the Blizzard VehicleUI set to hidden and Bartender VehicleBar set to enabled, the only time i see the vehicle bar is for a split second after i exit a vehicle.
  • #3620
  • #3624
    still not working for me :(

    only on my warrior.
  • #3619
    Micromenu issue, clarification: The micromenu disappears when a vehicle UI becomes active.

    Note: I have bartender's vehicle UI disabled.
    Class: Mage.

    A reload UI fixes it, but it's a hassle.
  • #3618
    My micromenu does not have a guild button on it. How can i fix this?
  • #3616
    Same here. Did not work for me!
  • #3615
    The micro menu disappears for me too I tried the fix but it didn't work =//
