About GridManaBars

Adds manabars to the sides of Grid frames.

Current News

Please note: Because of Pre-patch 6.0 there are currently some ongoing changes happening in Grid which affect GridManaBars (and a lot of other plugins for grid). While these changes should improve the stability of Grid and its plugins in the long run they currently cause some issues that I can't fix immediatly (although I will try). The last stable release combination is Grid and GridManaBars v1.04-toc5.4.


GridManaBars consist of two parts: a new bar indicator and a status which provides the power (mana, energy, rage, runepower) of an unit as a status. If you register the mana status with the bar indicator you get a mana bar (which should be set this way per default).

In case of Problems

Please use only the release versions of this addon! While I keep sure that every release version works with the latest Grid release I do not care if the latest alpha or beta versions do. I care even less if the latest alpha or beta of GridManaBars works with the latest alpha or beta of Grid. So if you encounter problems first make sure you are using the release version because if not it might happen I'll just ignore your ticket/question/whatever :-).

Note: GridManaBars has to hack itself somewhat into Grid in a way not supported by Grid. Most times this works well but it can cause trouble (especially after an update of Grid). So if you encounter any Problems with Grid and you have this addon installed try disabling GridManaBars before you create a ticket for Grid itself. If the problem disappears when you disable GridManaBars you can create a ticket for this addon instead for Grid itself. The authors of Grid have enough tickets to handle they don't need to handle tickets caused by this addon too.

    Could kiss ya, works like a charm!

  • #379

    I'll have a look into this tomorrow. Which indicator do you use for heal tracking? Text, Corner or Healing bar?

    It seems to work ok but the display level seems to have shifted, as in now my heal tracking appears underneath the mana bar instead of above.

    Please update this addon, really need this to work with the latest version of Grid. Thanks.

  • #372

    Update this pleaaaase!

  • #371

    I updated to the latest Grid and am now getting this Lua error:

    Message: Interface\AddOns\GridManaBars\GridManaBar.lua:16: bad argument #1 to 'insert' (table expected, got nil)
    Time: 10/16/14 18:02:17

    (*temporary) = <table> {
    order = 15
    type = "manabar"
    name = "Mana Bar"
    (*temporary) = "table expected, got nil"

  • #374

    Tried this ... Could not find the file ... and it had nothing in it that looked anything like this.

    Gave up.

    PLEASE PLEASE DEV. Update so that it works again with the latest Grid. Is a nightmare at present.


  • #369

    Please can you update this for the latest patch. Grid has been updated today (16/10/2014) and now I keep getting a irritating flashing error on my screen for no reason.

    SetIndicator: Manabar does not exist 

    It is driving me insane.

  • #368

    a bug:

    you can't really customize anything. if you set it to bottom, top = mana bar becomes black. if you set it to left or right =  mana bar stays right.

  • #366

    My previously post is actually.

    In catalog SavedVariables edit file Grid.lua

    replace string:

    ["manabar"] = {


    ["manabar"] = {
    ["unit_mana"] = true,

    WHERE do I find this "SavedVariables"???? I cannot find it.

  • #365

    any chance of an update to this? been quite a while.

  • #367

    Why do you need an update? Isn't it working?

    The only thing outdated is the toc version which causes the addon to be displayed as "outdated" in WoW (like most other that are practically finished and work fine and therefore aren't updated regularly anymore).

  • #364

    This addon causes Grid to have profile switching issues. If I am in a raid and I am out of combat and try to switch profiles then it causes a big lua error. I worked out that it was this addon causing it.

  • #363

    The addon still works for me.  It works in MoP 5.11a.  If it's not working, maybe you should disable a few addons to see if you can get it to work.
