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.

    updated to mists & updated bartender (need bartender, hate blizzard bars) but i keep getting lua errors. i've updated bartender 3 times now, nothing is working. the bars show up, but i dont have a micro menu, xp or reputation bar, and theyre all checked in the /bt place. really need help

  • #4444

    So.. How come Darkmoon Faire minigames hides my bars, but it hides when i enter a vehicle/horse at argent tournament?

    Though the Tonk darkmoon Faire minigame works like it should, but the rest dosn't.

    Clearly a bug if you ask me, even though it's the same bar it uses (OverrideActionBar)


  • #4449

    At least thats something i can go test, easier then doing some raid boss. :p

  • #4458

    I see that now. Cheers mate, keep up the good work. Just recently changed to Bartender from Dominos.. Best decision ever :P

  • #4456

    In 4.5.3 there is a new option in the "Visibility" tab of all bars to hide the bar when an override bar is active, "Hide with Override Bar", just tick that and it should hide the UI.

  • #4455

    I don't no much about coding LUA, but i think the issue is that: The Tonk quest is actually a vehicle, but the rest is just a buff.

    So maybe you are checking after the wrong thing, to hide the bartenders when wanting to hide when entering a vehicle.

    I can tell, that the one thing they all have in common is the actually override vehicle bar, which is called "OverrideActionBar" (I use that name, to check to hide my minimap, which works fine)

  • #4452

    Haha yea mate. I hope you will find out something for it, because i have an UI filled with kgPanels which i hide with bartender when i enter a vehicle.

    The UI comes up, but dosn't hide the bartender bars, which also hides my kgPanels AND minimap :P

  • #4448

    Totally agree with the Darkmoon Faire comment.  Keybinds do not work for any of the vehicle games except the tonk one.  Very strange... and annoying to have to click instead.

  • #4441

    So I'm having an issue and I think it might be from this addon. I cannot shift from one hotkey row to the next and I was wondering if someone could help.

  • #4440

    Can we have a stance bar for Incarnation: King of the Jungle (feral) aswell? Like Shadow Dance has. I have so many binds that it is very frustrating that I atm have to bind Pounce and Ravage to use out of stealth. Two extra binds which I only use for 30 sec.

  • #4453

    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.
