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.

    To disable the lame red bar loss of control stuff edit the following file "Bartender4/libs/LibActionButton-1.0/LibActionButton-1.0.lua".

    Remove the following two lines, line 720 and 721.

    elseif event == "LOSS_OF_CONTROL_UPDATE" then
        ForAllButtons(UpdateLossOfControlCooldown, true)

    bartender doesnt page when u use  [Incarnation: King of the Jungle] as a druid. whats up with that?

    edit: i noticed that it says  [Incarnation: Tree of life] even if you're feral but its actually the "normal form" if that makes sense?

    i put some abilities in page 9 and i put it under [Incarnation: Tree of life] but whenever i go into my normal form, it would page to page 9. note that this is while being farm and there is no  [Incarnation: King of the Jungle]

    is there any way to prevent bars going red while being CCd?


  • #4727

    I keep getting 'script ran too long' errors now when using bartender (specifically from libactionbutton), i know its because blizzard greatly reduced the amount of cpu addons can use, but has anyone found a workaround for this with bartender specifically?

  • #4726

  • #4723

    Seems like after updating to the latest bartender4 version today, it has started giving me the error where it would not allow you to respec/reglyph which was not happening a day ago when I was using the old version in 5.1

    Any ways to fix this?

  • #4724

    I have had this problem as well, but in addition I some times cannot join battle ground queues without having to disable Bartender 4.

    This is just a mild annoyance that I haven't found a way to change, but is there any chance of making the map icon around the mini-map movable so it's not covering the level of my target??

    Also, half the time when I have a pandaren (and only a pandaren) targeted, it shows their health as being 0.

  • #4720

    I've notice that even when I have my bartender on lock to prevent any of my hotkey action being remove when I mouse over it or click on it.  My pet's action bar still remain removable when i mouse click and release over its ability onto the next ability that's next to it.  Please fix this so when I click and release. It doesn't get drag over to the next ability like I was doing the action swap order.

    Bartender Bug


    I choose to only show the first 6 buttons of the main Actionbar (1,2,3.....0,-,=)

    I have keys bound on the hidden buttons, when i /reload or relog, the hidden buttons arent usable (pressing 7,8,9 etc does not perform the action).

    To get these to work i have to /bt go into the bar, drag buttons shown to 12, then back to 6, as if to remind BT that the buttons still exist.

    Considering that u cant /bt in combat, i start a fight and cant use some of my most important buttons, basically have to force a wipe and fix the issue by doing what i stated above.


    Its Bar 1, i have keybound  ` to replace 9, everything else is the default bindings, i have the bar set as click through, buttons 7 through to = are hidden.

  • #4715

    I'm having an issue with bartender where it won't show any of my bars. I can't find a place to even edit them anymore. I have the latest version installed.  Is there something i'm missing?
