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.

    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!

    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.

  • #4125

    Jesus is it possible to get some news about the keyboard recognition ???? I start with compliments but now I just become angry like you don't give a shit with our problems 

    Yes I have a Mac should I just buy a new PC just for you or what ??

  • #4126

    Ungrateful much?

    This guy puts alot of effort into his addon, he does this in his free time.

    Hes got more important things to do then take care of your problems when all you do is be a little bitch about it.

    Complain about how you have to adjust for him, yet you demand things yourself.

    My addon data was wiped and I had to start over. Before, my skill icon/button would turn red if the target was out of range of that skill. Now, only the hotkey (the tiny number in the corner of the button) turns red. Much less visible.


    I can't find the option to make the whole button turn red again. Have I missed it somewhere?

  • #4121

    Ok this may be a bad question, but I cannot find my guild tab on the micro menu?  sure there is a simple fix or something im not seeing, ive already tried looking at posts, so any tips?

  • #4119

  • #4117

  • #4115

    Strangely enough, I don't have any issues at all, I mean bartender works as it should... only geting those errors spamms connected to combat lockdown.

    Vehicle Bar

    First and most imporantly, my Vehicle Bar has completely disappeared, so thanks for keeping me on a rocking tiger for 20 minutes... Secondly, @soultermination, the Reforge glitch seems to be a problem with everyone. It's fixed via relogging or reloading ui, so when you disabled the addon you probably needed to do one of those which would have fixed it. It happens at random, and I've seen it happen both with and without Bartender.

    Please fix the vehicle bar problem ASAP, because this addon is utterly shit if you can't exit your vehicles upon finishing the event that requires them.
