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.

    All my bars are deleted too--for all toons on 2 different PCs. Sad times.

  • #4635

    Love this addon and WoW wouldn't be the same without it, but there is a major problem right now.

    The pet bar is missing a button, and I can't find any way to add one.

    I cannot add a row beyond the 10 that it has and there is no way to add my pet's taunt spell to it.

    If anyone know how to get around this or if I am doing something wrong, pls let me know.


  • #4640

    I'm not 100% sure but this is probably cause of how blizzard lets their pet bars work and there's nothing you can do about it. The taunt button thing is a bug though, I hope blizzard fixes it soon.

    yeah. addon seems to be bugging often during talent/glyph change, sometimes i'm unable to do it even after /reload command

    also if i try to change anything during arena i will end up with no bars and keybindings. this one has to be fixed asap!


    is there any alternative for bartender which is free of those issues? i've been using it for like forever.

  • #4632
    Hey, any chance you could add stance state configuration for Druid's Feral Incarnation form? Its identical in use to rogue shadow dance, the cat bar needs to swap to the cat stealth bar. At the moment bartender only supports the resto druid incarnation bar swap.
    Thanks for the mod
  • #4630

    how do i change bars from horizontal to verticle etc?

  • #4631

    Change the "Rows" from 1 to 12.

    Talents/Glyph changing

    Still looking for a fix for bartender4 blocking talent/glyph changes. Yes, you can reload UI and it will temporarily fix that issue.

    The main problem with this is that if you /reload in an arena match, it removes ALL keybindings and ALL bars from the screen. This is a big issue right now, and several of my friends are having same issue. Need to be able to change talents and glyphs based off the composition of the team you are facing. On a side note to this issue, when you leave the arena (after losing because you have no buttons) everything goes back to where it was before you accepted the queue.

    If there is a hotfix, scripting fix, or anything I can do to fix this issue or help in any way, please let me know. Thank you again for your otherwise amazing addon.


  • #4628

    /reload is not always helping with that issue.

    And if there will be no fix, I think, I have to change my favorite action bars addon (that I have been using for about 3 years now) to something different. There is not much time in arena or RBG to do something about it. But I want to be able to change some talents without any pressure in given preparation time if I need to play good.

    This is a blizzard problem not a bartender one, I don't have any issues with bartender for this but basicchatmods is the culprit for me, I have to reload. Author confirmed it's a blizzard issue, nothing an addon author can do about it.

  • #4629

    I tried to find a debug for it, but alas no success. If I could stand how the original layout of blizzards interface looked this wouldnt be driving me so nuts.

  • #4626

    I have keybound the "extra action bar button 1" with WoW regular keybindings, now the key appears constantly on the extra button.

    Could you add a "hide hotkey" option for this bar please ?


  • #4625

    Please make vanish bar seperate from dance bar every rogue will love you if can choose witch one u want to use Vanish/dance/stealth makin the rogue chooose witch bar they want to use for each stance 

  • #4623

    I got a trouble with the reputation bar, when I enable it, it gets frozen and dosent move even if I get reputation of that faction, to see my current status with that reputation I must disable it and then re-enable it (but it gets frozen again); I want to know if its something I did or something else

  • #4621

    Thnx for this great addon. 

    is it possible to save key bindings when we use Dual profile? Because everytime i change the spec i have to re-bind the keys. ty
