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.

    I can recommend modifier macros, or just make use of (bar 10 fx.) to show when holding shift.

    Then you can just chose shift+1,2,3,4 (dunno of theres more special abilites for that upgrade cat).

    Maybe you can detect it by macro, try google it.

  • #4445

    I am very interested in this as well :(

  • #4442

    Sadly, thats not possible.
    I can only offer extra stance bars when the game allows me to, and there is no way to detect Incarnations in general, it only works for Tree of Life because its a completely new form, but the feral versions just "upgrade" your current form, so it can't detect it. 

  • #4467

    Incarnation for feral, guardian, moonkin is considered a buff if that helps anyone make something useful to get bars to change.

  • #4439

    Another Demo Lock here.  Can Dark Apotheosis be added to the "Stance Configuration" section of the "State Configuration" Tab?  Meta is already there, and works great.  This would be a great help to those who have taken the Glyph of Demon Hunting.


  • #4443

    I'll grab that glyph and see if its possible.

    I got the glyph, but for some reason the way it should work (the same way as with Meta), it just doesn't. Sounds like Blizzard forgot something, i'll try to bring it to their attention.

    Hi, im currently playing a Demo Warlock. 

    When im casting Hand of Gul'dan my game goes into a loop. I've tried multyple computers all had the same problem. After that i tried making a macro of the spell with a random icon, that neither fixed it.


    Is there anyone with the same (or similar) problem? and how did you fix / not fix it? 

  • #4437

    Hi there,

    I installed bartender the other day and the UI it presents to start with is not the same as Blizzards and as such the bags don't line up with the UI frames at all (and you have the one bag only feature enabled by default which looks odd.)


    On-top of this the arrows to change the bottom action bar are missing and so are the numbers plus the two right hand bars are reversed which shouldn't be the case!

    1 2   is now  2 1

    ||                  ||


    I think the UI should start off the same as Blizzards (or as close to as possible) when you first install the addon so that people don't end up confused.


    Just thought you might like to know. =)

  • #4436

    Even before patch I have this problem with bar 7 --- it's enable, always to show -- everytime I log out I need to /bt4 unenable/reable ---- I saved the profile with bar 7 present. Not sure what else to do! everything else is fine, thanks for the work into this!

  • #4433

    I find a temporary workaround to fix the XP bar. Simply use /reload ui once to reload the interface right after you log in game (for ease I made a macro so I can just press a button). Ofc if you change character you will have to do it again (and that's why I created the macro).

    Unfirotunately this doesn't work with the Reputation bar. I think there should be some conflict between the Rep and the Xp bars, cause if the XP bar is visible and I enable the Rep bar (from the Bartender Options) the XP bar is disappearing but the Rep bar is not shoing up either.

    Hope it helps. Smile

    Both the XP and the Reputation bar are working perfectly for me in version 4.5.2, maybe some other addons is hiding them out of Bartenders control?

    I suggest to try with all your other addons disabled, so you can check if its really Bartender causing the problems.

    The XP bar of course only works if you're not on max level (and have no turned off XP gain) 

  • #4435

    4.5.2 fixed the hiding XP bar for me, thanks so much!

  • #4431

    There's a bit of a bug for Rogue stealth/shadowdance bar scrolling. The shadowdance/vanish page scroll option is scrolling to stealth regardless which bar you set it to.

    You're right, its fixed for the next version. You can grab an alpha if you can't wait.

  • #4428

    Meh, downloading this latest update for bartender via the curse client actually uninstalled the entire addon. :(
