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!

    • 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.

    I also have a problem with bartender4 and other addons to.

    It worked fine untill yesterday. I needed to re-instal windows and when wow was done I downloaded the addons and now most of them are out of date.

    When loading them I can't do anything because of the lag and I get a message to turn the addons off because it's causing to much problems.

    Like Sknr I also miss the button Raid FInder. Just like it was missing right after raid finder came in the game.

    Bt4 and the rest of the addons work fine on my friends comp but he didn't re-instal the game.

    Any idea what this could be?

    I downloaded bartender yesterday and somehow theres 2 buttons missing in the micromenu one of them is Raid Finder. I used to have bartender along ago, but I stopped using it and it used to work fine but now in my micromenu I cant see the Raid Finder button and some other button. Please fix this.

    Hi love the addon, just a question, would it be possible for you to add to the Profile Saves to also save the Keybinds? Like I know you can save the positioning of all your bars, but I want to save the keybinds as well, for all my alts. If that is possible to do already, let me know how, and if not please please please try to add that option.

  • #4312

    Currently on Beta, the stance bar and the micro menu are inoperable.  I cannot get them to appear :/

  • #4311

    Hey guys. What about countdown on icons?  :) for spells like DK - Scent of Blood, or generally for spells which stacked. Like on original bars, but who wanna use blizzard bars :D

  • #4310

    Hi all

    Anyone else having BT4 NOT show the PlayerPowerBarAlt frame? This is the one that pops when you have to use the Hourglass in EndTime? Also it shows for Maw of Madness in Twilight Highlights for Digestive Juices?

    Missing bars

    Everytime I'm on my Rogue in stealth and attack, my first four spells on my first bar show but all others don't until I move a spell on the bar. Also, when I leave a BG, my micro bar always disappears. I've looked all over the Internet for a possible solution but could not find one. What could the problem be?

  • #4308

    Hi, why i can se the keybinding on my spell? Exemple I putt keybinding Shift-r to Evasion spell

    when i active bartender 4 the keybinding ON my spell is not there ... Thanks you!

    Esyer for druid shapsifting tip

    Hey just a question mate. is it posible to get a fu extra action bars. cos then it wil be easyer for druid shapeshifting tbh :D

  • #4306

    I have the same problem as Olvado:

    My keybind info is above the bars, with macro text and reagent numbers below. I'm using the NotCaith skin (from Degausser's pack, long time ago)... I'm not very addon-savvy, so I'm not sure if it's something you can fix from your end, or something that has to be fixed with skin. I don't even know how to go about fixing the skin, or if that skin is even still supported anywhere >>

    The other skins, Blizzard, Zoom, and Dream, are all fine.
