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!

    • Stance Bar
    • Pet Bar
    • Bag Bar
    • Micro Menu
    • XP/Reputation Bar

  • 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

  • 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.

    Re: Bartender4 lua

    In current version of Bartender - 4.5.4 received this lua when typing in chat " /bar " without quotes :)

    The lua prevents me from getting into Bartender options at all...

    Vanish pagination is still having problems. When you set the Shadowdance pagination, to a different bar than the stealth bar, if you use vanish you have to wait 3 secs aprox, until the pagination. It just happens when you modify the default pagination bars for stealth -  shadowdance stances. Please help us fixing it because is very anoying not to have a vanish pagination since it is a new stance. :(

  • #4530

    Sadly this is Blizzards limitations, unless they change it again, it just has to work like this :(

  • #4524

    Got this bug without bartender, too. 



    After Patch 5.0.4 I tend to get the bug where I could not use any spell, interact with NPC, swap a gear, not even could exit from the game with the ESC menu Exit button. Need to close the whole wow window with X on corner or kill the task.

    Deleted some really old addon, disabled out of dated ones, did a so-called reset settings with logged in without addons (renamed Interface directory), but nothing changed so far. With addons I got this bug, without any addons can change zones and use spells after. Currently testing it to zone to TB and back to SW. 

    Only one time got it working, after manually deleted the addon directory (not via Cure Client), but after a few zone change it bugged again:-(

    Would not like to delete WTF directory and build up the UI from the ground it will be a pain.

    Thank you so much,

    Looking forward to a soltuion

    I don't know anything about how addons work but.. When I try to change talents the game tells me bartender made an interface action fail and have to disable it to carry on, is there something I can do about it? or is this an issue with the addon?

  • #4522

    Is possible add the feature to blind key to special actions action bar?We miss the possibilite to create macros that can be used for activated the special abilities for ultra o fall of deathwing.

    I've run into an issue with the most recent update. When I uncheck the "Enable" box under pet bar, the option disappears, keeping me from being able to re-enable it. Is this a bug, or is there something I'm missing/can do to fix it?

    I have the same issue, the enable checkbox dissapears!

  • #4519

    This problem is fixed for the next version, sorry for the troubles. If you're desperate, you can download a Alpha version of WoWAce

  • #4515

    I'm having another problem.


    The red range color only seems to work on hotbar 1, but on hotbar 2 and up and via hotbar paging , the range red color does not work at all.


    spent a few minutes going through hotbar tabs to make sure all settings is the same as hotbar 1. Cannot see anything diffrent.

    Re: Bartender4 copy settings to another computer

    I have one machine with windows 7 32 bit and want to keep all my keybinds and bar setup to a laptop with w7 64 bit...  I copied over the wtf and interface into the x86 wow folder and removed the old wtf and interface on the 64 bit just to make sure but still not working?  Are the settings kept somewhere else?




  • #4513

    That is very strange but Bartender forces my client to disconnect constantly without any LUA error.

  • #4512

    When playing in Isle of Conquest the canons inside keep freezes, means they only point in one directions and its unpossible to shoot.

    I am using Bartender4 and Burlex: User Interface.

    I have changed to SpartanUI, but the same happend.

    Have also tried to change from Bartender4 Vehicle UI and Blizzard Vehicle UI.

    Any other settings I should try to use?

    This is a great addon indeed. I just have one little problem. I cannot find a way for the bar to hide if the [harm] target is dead and show if it is alive. I have all the below working nicely.



    I tried some varieties of the last line conditional in regards of target=alive etc without any luck.

    I'm sure bartender can do this and I'm missing something simple. 

  • #4510

    For some reason (since the most recent update) my Extra Action Button no longer shows up for the Ultraxion and DW fights. Luckily I am able to use a macro, so I am able to work around it.  It is enabled in Bartender and I checked to make sure it was in a clearly visible place (by unlocking the bars to move them).  When I did do that, I did notice that some (not all) of my bars had moved to a default location.  Any suggestions?
