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.

    How do i set what rep i want to show on my rep bar?


    - while in game open your Reputation list ( Default hot key U ) click the faction you want to watch. A menu will pop out- check "show as experience bar" then if you have bartenders rep bar active it will reflect the faction you chose.

    Thank you very much.

    I'm having an issue where Im unable to click on my buttons. The tool tip is showing that it acknowledges that im hovering over the button, but when I go to click- nothing.. It will either click through the button to whats behind it or not respond at all. This is happening on all my characters, priest, rogue, death knight... not sure if it follows any others.

    I've tried differnt computer mice just incase it was a hardware issue on my end.

    -running Windows 7 64 bit if it matters

    For some reason, my XP bar does not work on startup, i have to go, set a reputation to be tracked, then turn off that same reputation before it will show up, after this, it works fine until i logout, i can track reputations normally, etc.

    Error occured in: AddOn: Bartender4
    Count: 1
    Message: Note: AddOn Bartender4 attempted to call a protected function (MultiBarBottomRightButton9:Hide()) during combat lockdown.
    [C]: Hide()
    ..\FrameXML\ActionButton.lua:259: ActionButton_Update()
    ..\FrameXML\ActionButton.lua:484: ActionButton_OnEvent()


    Have had this error with a few other addons. Skill Helper was one of them. Turns out that the addon is trying to remake the bars during combat which is an illegal action. IDK what was done to fix it on the addon i mentioned, but he did a little searching and had a fix in less then 5 mins lol.


    Just giving you an FYI. I pops up about once every time i enter combat lol


  • #4239

    Today, as I leveled, I redid my bars for some added actions.  I went to eat dinner and came back and everything that I had set up is now gone. Its as if Bartender keeps losing its settings. Any fixes coming anytime soon.

    This is not the first time its happened.


  • #4238

    I have an odd problem. Last night (10 hours ago) Bartender4 worken perfectly fine. However this morning, there aren't any Bartender bars present anymore. It's just the regular Blizzard bars that show. I didn't change anything to Bartender or other addons and I know Bartender is loaded since I'm able to do /bartender and enter the menu. I've tried everything: load out of date addons, disabling/enabling Bartender bars, disabling/enabling Blizzard bars etc.

    Does anyone know what's going on? I'm reluctant to do a Bartender reinstall since I lose all my settings than.


    I just went into the Bartender4.lua file and found it was stripped of almost all it's data. I had te restore it with an old backup version I had on another computer. If you have the time, can you please investigate why this happens? Thanks.

  • #4231

    What's up with bartender and warriors? I have a whole row of professions and when I look at the tooltips, they don't have any. Same is true of certain macros and abilities such as Inner Rage, Berserker Rage and the like. I've created bartender setup for 5 classes so far with no problem and this is the first class I've had problem with.

  • #4232

    Ok clicking on ehhanced tooltips in the interface menu fixed the issues. Odd.

  • #4230


    There is an option for hiding when out of combat. There is one fade out option.

    How can I mix both? I mean, I want my bars to fade out, but only when out of combat: during combat, they will show.
