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.

  • #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

  • #4620

    Can you please fix the problem with glyphs and talents.  This add on is blocking the change and needs to be turned off when u want to change them

  • #4622

    does not reload ui works?

  • #4619

    I'd really love an option for 'Show/Hide all bars'.  I disable visibility on all my bars, but when I want to rearrange spells or keybinds I need to go to each one and enable visibility for all 6 bars, then do the reverse when I'm done.  

    Having that option would turn ~25 clicks into 2.

    i play molten wow cataclyism and everytime i try and use bartender i get about 30 errors

  • #4616

    this addon blocks glyph&talent changing (asks to disable bartender4 and then try again)

    can u fix it finally ? thx

  • #4614

    One minor flaw I do see with Bartender. Is its alignment code for druids. In that it assumes especially for me (because I have the tree glyph) .. that I have 6 stances in total. Which I do in Resto. Though only 5 in Guardian. However, the centering code offsets the stance bar when swapping to Guardian. Would love a fix that would not assume Guardian has 6 stances. So that the bar centers properly. Thank you.

  • #4612


    Used to use Dominos up until a few days ago. Biggest reason for the swap. Is that Bartender plays nicer with other add-ons (ex. LunarSphere). Dominos current code forcibly blocks LS from its functions (ex bars). While Bartender does not. I am a huge believer that a add-on should not interfer with other add-ons. And the way Dominos is currently coded it plays very aggressive in how it hides stuff. So its nice to have an add-on that does what it needs to. While not interfering with the functionality of another add-on.

    Some questions though:

    * Dominos had a cast bar frame, does Bartender?

    * Right click cast set to "none" in Dominos did just that. Right click cast set to "none" in Bartender, seems to still heal the target and not self. I do use Clique. Though, Dominos and Clique seemed to never clash in this way. Is this possibly whats happening with Bartender, a clash? (will have to check as well)

    * A silly cosmetic thought. Dominos allowed gloss to be applied to empty buttons. Seems Bartender does not gloss over empty buttons. Can it be made to do so? Not a huge deal just sort of like the glossy look.

    I love this add on, but the amount of bars a person can put on there screen is overwhelming. What I would love too see is a tabbed bar, like the stance bar  so you can switch your action bars too food, mounts, spells etc type thing lol so instead on 6 bars all over the screen, I can have them all layered in one spot and tabbed.

  • #4613

    Use LunarSphere along with Bartender for all of that. I have used LS for the longest as my "everything else thats needed, but doesn't need to be all over" add-on.

    I use 6 LS pop-out action bars.

    1 - professions/skills

    2 - food/drink/bandage

    3 - buffs

    4 - character pets (mostly for demo lock and shammy)

    5 - pots/flasks

    6 - mounts/hearth

    Hello there!

    I have some questions about using and understanding this addon...

    What is Extra Action Bar and Vechicle Bar bars? I mean... I didnt saw any bars in that places by Blizzard default interface like Bartender draws without changing settings... If I'll turn it off will I turn off something useful?

  • #4602

    Is it possible to fix Bartender so it doesn't try to prevent you from changing talents and glyphs pretty much all the time?

  • #4609

    That's not actually a Bartender bug at all, it's a bug with Blizzard's UI. Many times, when you try to change glyphs (and talents now) since they changed the glyph frame at like... the beginning of Cata or something... you'll instead get an error blaming a random addon tainting the frame (which almost nothing does). I believe I've read the problem even happens with no addons, but presumably it doesn't blame an addon in that case. Just do /reloadui and you'll be able to change whatever you need.
