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.

    Been having a problem since the expansion launched that my spell cooldowns are not updating until i leave combat or press the spell again.  I'll use dash on my druid and it will show ready until i leave combat then the cooldown will show.  Anyone else having this problem?

  • #5399

    Is it possible to allow Bar 1 to be disabled while in Treant Form, but when you leave Treant Form, whatever bar you have it set to - is then disabled? I'm tying to make a bar for dungeons, and a bar for soloing. So far I have no avail on this and its getting very discouraging. :(

  • #5414

    You can create a bar for "caster" stance (when not in a form) and have it change to that. 

    The paging functions work very well with Druids, I use them all the time. As long as you have enough bars, you can have a separate one for each stance, just hide them or use the paging function to roll through them based on your stance.

    Good Luck.

  • #5398

    Great add-on thanks. I cant delete certain profiles, only 3/7 show up under Profiles>Delete a Profile.

    I have several profiles I use for pvp-pve w/diff toons so a fix would be great.


  • #5396

    The hotkey are not showing on any bar, beside bar 1. Even though the Hide Hotkey checkbox is unchecked. I have also tried checking it and unchecking it again, but hotkeys are still not visible. 

    Please, any fix for this?

  • #5395

    HI. i am fairly new to bartender, but i got everything setup the way i want to, but for some reason, every time i relog whenever i have a profile selected, the profile gets reset. Can some one help me?

  • #5393

    Hi so i've recently got Bartender and I cannot stand the empty space in the non-spell bars and I need to know how to have the bars displayed even without a spell placed in them. I have OCD so it is driving me crazy seeing the empty space. 

    -Also I need to know how to display the extra bar, because currently it is invisible. 

    -Picture of empty space where the bars with no spells are: Image Removed:

    Bars have a "padding" option. Reduce the padding and each button will get closer to eachother. 

    The option to show bars even when empty is called "Button Grid", it's a checkbox in the General Settings tab.


    You need to replicate the changes to all bars.

  • #5392

    has anyone found a fix to petbar buttongrid disapering ?

  • #5390


    Can't use quest tracker quest items after today's update (12/10/14).  More correctly, only the very left edge of a clickable quest item in the quest tracker will activate the item.  If you move your mouse very slowly, the item will 'highlight' (edge around the clickable item in quest tracker) when you hit the left edge, but any other spot on the quest item in the quest tracker has no effect.

    Disabling Bartender4 and reloadui fixes, turning Bartender4 back on duplicates issue.


  • #5400

    Now no longer certain it's Bartender4 doing it - reloadui fixes it most of the time, regardless.  

  • #5388

    I have an odd issue on my hunter. The 5th button slot on my pet bar is acting strangely. If I put an ability I have to click on there, it just doesn't work when I click it. Still makes the click sound. If I drag an ability from the 4th button slot to the 5th button slot, it duplicates it in both, so the same ability is in 4 and 5. No tooltip comes up from the 5th button slot either.

    Any ideas?

  • #5386

    i have several icons appearing on several bars. When i remove it from one of the bars I don't want it on, it gets removed from all the bars. Any idea how to fix it?

  • #5389

    Bars 7-10, by default (Blizz UI, in other words), are 'state' configured bars.  Some classes, when they change stances, have an entirely different set of skills (druid, for example).  

    Short version: go into bars 1-6 and make sure "state configuration" checkbox for "Enabled" isn't checked.  Keep in mind that this may affect your skills changing automatically when you change stances.

  • #5385

    Is there a way to have my keybinds change for my forms on a druid?  For instance, my hotbar 2 will still show the cat abilties if I go bear. The only thing I can see is to hid the bar, but I am still out the keybinds to use for bear form.
