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.

    Can anyone tell me how id go about moving the chat box so its not above where all my action bars are if you understand?
  • #1634
    The one bug that is really annoying, i don't know how to replicate it, but it also existed with Bartender 3, and well... now as well in bartender 4.
    Bar 1 disappears and shows up as bar 2 in the middle of a battle. All the spells in bar 1 are exactly identical as in bar 2. In order to restore bar 1 you have to log out, disable bartender, log in, then logout again enable bartender then log back in.
  • #1638
    i have the same problem, it's really annoying. anyone knows a solution to this?
  • #1652
    Bar 1 will become bar 2 if you are holding down shift and scroll up. You can fix this by just holding shift and scrolling back down.
  • #1629
    feature request:
    Could you please make it so that some bars can be set to "Same bar regardless of dual-spec."?

    e.g. I have a mage with a portal/utility bar that changes often; I would like to make that bar the same between specs.

    sidenote: One must implement a spell-rank check to make sure to not override higher spell ranks with lower ones.
  • #1628
    I got a question about profiles.
    My 80 hunter on one server is using the profile "Myname1 - Doomhammer".
    On another server I would like my other level 80 hunter to use the same profile.
    But when I select "Myname1 - Doomhammer" profile on hunter #2, I just get some default actionbar setup.

    How can the same profile look completely different on 2 different chars?
  • #1624
    Ok, I'm having a problem with bartender. When I shadowdance (sub spec rogue) it changes to my stealth bar, instead of my Shadowdace bar, if there a way to fix this?
  • #1623
    I'm really just looking for some way to hide the crappy endcap art on the vehicle menu bars. is this possible with this mod, or else how to do it?
  • #1622
    Try fixing your problems by downgrading to 4.4.0 I don't have any problems with it.
  • #1619
    Why original totem bar dont disapears when i turn on bartender totem bar ?
  • #1649
    I have the exact same problem! Quite annoying =/
  • #1617
    Is Dominoes better? It seems to be updated more often. Thanks
  • #1616
    I've come across an error since 3.2.2, where I all my macros disappear (except for character specific ones) and all my keybinds disappear as well. If I reload the ui a few times, it generally clears up, but today it isn't working. The error I get from swatter is as follows.
