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.

    Hi, my Micro Meny isn't working correctly. When i press the Bartender icon on my mini map (the different bares turn green so I can move them) the Micro Menu is green. I've set it to the bottom right, but the buttons for the Micro Menu is on the bottom centre. You have any idea why it is like that? Could really need some help. I can't move the buttons or anything like that.

  • #4137

    As much as I love this addon, and as long as I've had it installed (a few years now), I am very disappointed with the lack of response to all the issues users have raised. The issues go beyond the pet bar and the unability to dismount from the Faire sandbox tigers.

    I understand the complexities of real life. I understand there is a lot to do and little time each day, but at least one response from the dev would have gone a long way with us. With that being said, I am downloading Dominos.  :(

    Take care,


  • #4135

    I like this addon. I prefer the features and functionality of bartender over similar addons, and after resisting customizing this portion of the default UI for five+ years, now I can't imagine playing without bartender. I'm not a clicker; I just like seeing everything there in front of me.

    I too am plagued with vehicle bar problems but I have been since my first install and have just been "living with it," since the friend who recommended the addon walked me through the install, I set it up the same way, and he doesn't have the issues I do. Go figure.

    I have problems notably with the Hyjal quest chains, where I just pretty much disable the addon from right before I do the cube quest until after I fight the big demon. I always squirmed out of jumping on the back of Magmaw because I was worried I would wipe the raid. I couldn't get out of Thanksgiving chairs. And every now and then I'll find something that kills me or fails a quest and I'll have to start over, where others don't have a problem.

    Due to the Ultraxion encounter I got a keen workaround, finally, even though it was apparently on wowhead for a year or so -- and this does work on the darkmoon faire dailies -- the /Click SpecialActionButton 1 will get you through most every daily, you can live without speed boost on tonks. I just put it where my 1 action button is and go on my merry way.

    But ideally I would like to get it so that it is working as intended through all the cata quests where it should be working and I can't help but wonder if I installed it or configured it incorrectly somehow, by using too many bars or doing something "special" to my first bar that I shouldn't have. Also, I used all 10 button bars on screen to see them all at once. I didn't use any macros or other advanced functionality.

    Whenever the game does successfully mount me into a vehicle, it always leaves my first action bar in place even though the buttons are really not 'usable.'

    Any ideas?

  • #4133

    for some reason my keybindings between 2 of my toons are the same.  whenever i change them on one, they change exactly the same on the other.  It wasn't like this like 2 weeks ago, and i can't make it stop.  Anyone know what I have to do to make it stop?  All the rest of my toons seem fine, it's just these 2. 

    In the settings it even says it's their own profile, but its the keybindings it guess that is the problem, not the setup of the bars, so i don't know if that is even a problem with this mod or not?

    forget the exact wording, but when you hit "key bindings" make sure on the window that pops up that "character only" (forget exact)  bindings are selected.

  • #4131

    My issue is I cant get out of a motorcycle if I'm in it or get off of the little rides by the sandbox in Darkmoon fair.  I've tried /leave vehicle and it doesn't work.  i have to log out and back in to get off the stupid thing or the driver of the cycle has to dismount to kick me out of the cycle.

  • #4136

    Same issue here. I've died by thirst and hunger while riding a sandbox tiger at the fair...

  • #4132

    I'm having same issue....getting on vehicles that require the dismount button to get off of them and not having the dismount button.  I actually used Addon Control Panel to disable bartender, reloaded UI, and dismounted, then re enabled bartender to get off of the sandbox tiger I was on when I first got the issue.

  • #4143

    Just make a "jump off" button macro, I use it all the time for for example bike rides:

    /script VehicleExit() 

  • #4134

    FYI I think you can press number 5 on your number pad (not above your keys) to dismount a vehicle - took me 20+ minutes to figure this out at the darkmoon faire zzz. Might not work for all if you have rebound, but I think that is the default binding. Hope it helps!

  • #4130

    I cant get my buttons to lock down.  I have the option checked in both BT and BlizzUI.  Am I missing something or is there a workaround for this?  If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!  Its a fresh install of everything on a new system.

    I am having a problem with my pet bar now. While growl and other pet skills seem to be operating as intended (little lights around the edges of the button to show its on), my pets stance buttons (defensive, passive, and assist) do not light up nor does the attack, follow, move or stay.

    I guess I should mention, the buttons are working as intended, there are just no indicators so that I can tell which is active.

    I too am experiencing vehicle bar problems and need to log out - disable Bartender - log back in and then log out - enable Bartender - and log back in.  Very frustrating. To add insult to injury I cannot use the number pad on Blizzards vehicle bar so it is very hard to use the mouse to move and then try to use the mouse to click on the trigger.

    I've tried the work around:

    -delete the Bartender folder from the Addons folder.
    -in the WTF/Account/<NAME>/SavedVariables folder, copy the Bartender4 and Bartender4.lua.bak files somewhere else (as a backup) and then delete them from the SavedVariables folder.
    -extract the Bartender4 download. copy paste it to the Addons folder.

    That did not solve the problem.

    I see others posting the same problem, but I don't see any solutions.  Please help!


  • #4127

    My problem is also with Vehicle bars, they don't work at all for darkmoon fair and I also nearly killed our raid last night running ICC when I got bitten on blood queen and couldn't bite anyone else.


    other than that I love this addon, it's just a pain to have to disable it everytime I go into anything that requires a vehicle bar.
