About Marking Bar

MarkingBar is an addon to help players use raid markers in parties and raids. It is designed to be simple and easy to use, while offering a wide variety of options without taking up a lot of memory.


  • Quickly mark and unmark the current target by clicking the symbol you want to assign or remove.
  • Perform a party or raid Ready Check.
  • Perform a Role Check.
  • Announce your current marking system to party or raid chat. These messages can be customized through the gear icon or /mb options.
  • While in a party or raid, place the raid flare/world markers. Note: This cannot be done in combat, and the flares frame will automatically hide when you enter combat.
  • Each frame can be moved anywhere on screen and locked in place.
  • Frames can have the icon order reversed or be stacked vertically.
  • Frames can have the border and background completely hidden.
  • Tooltips can be turned on and off.
  • Tooltips can be turned on or off for announcement messages.
  • Show the frames all the time, or only while you have a target.
  • Show/hide the frames while alone, in a party, or in a raid group.
New BIG Features In Progress, Coming Soon:
  • New flare colors.
  • Keybinding options for all features.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and memory improvements.
  • Better options for turning on/off every aspect and fine-tuning when each part is shown.
  • Better options for changing the spacing and look of the frames.
  • (Optional) Data Broker integration.
  • User profile management between characters.
  • Ability to announce strategies to chat for Charms and Flares. (Current functionality is being totally revamped!)
  • Ability to link symbols for charms and flares to add directly to chat.
  • Ability to announce boss strategies and other custom messages to self/party/instance/raid group.

Slash Commands

  • positions stored in savedvars

Version 2.1.7

  • removed auto version check
  • code opt
  • tag 5.4.2

Version 2.1.2/3

  • removed clear all markers until a solution is found to have it working 100%
  • added Role Poll
  • updated for 5.0.4 recommend to run a /mb reset if you notice strange behavior.

Version 2.1.1

  • Fixed an issues that was causing the "Clear All Icons" feature to crash when clicked repeatedly. Clicking this icon repeatedly is probably still not a great idea, but will no longer cause any game-crashing world-breaking issues. =)

Version 2.1.0

  • Fixed numerous bugs and conflicts.
  • Options frame now properly hidden during cinematics and while pressing Alt+Z
  • Clicking the options gear icon will take you to the MarkingBar Options. Right-clicking the icon will take you directly to the announce options.
  • A button to clear all raid icons has been added.

Version 2.0.4

  • Options interface has been updated to include options for the control frame
  • Fixed announcements conflicting with other chat addons, like Prat
  • Fixed a bunch of bugs where options weren't sticking

Version 2.0.3

  • Fixed taint issues hopefully once and for all. Users will no longer see "Interface action blocked because of an Addon" anymore.
  • The options interface has been integrated into the default Blizzard UI. You can still access the options from /mb or from the gear icon, but you can now also access the options by pressing Esc to bring up the Game Menu>Interface>Addons>MarkingBar.
  • More room to edit announcement text
  • New announcement line to add at the end of the marks
  • New announcement option to add a raid warning message when announcing in a raid
  • New option to add announcement messages to the icon's tooltips. This is especially useful if you can never remember what text you set up and what those pesky icons mean. =)
  • Added option to separate the announcement frame from the raid icons frame
  • The announcement options are now always visible
  • The lock icon for the main Raid Icons has moved from the announcement frame to the raid icons frame
  • World Marker flares are now always hidden in combat, since the ability to set them is protected by Blizzard and you can't set them while in combat anyway.

Version 2.0.2

  • Corrected errors in the chat announcement not displaying icons correctly for non-English versions of WoW
  • Added more show/hide options for solo, party, and raid
  • Corrected taint issue that was affecting some people
  • Updated version number

Version 2.0.1

  • Corrected errors with variables not being saved or remembered correctly.
  • Corrected errors with hiding when not in a party or raid. It will now detect a party or raid correctly.
  • Updated version number

Version 2.0

  • MarkingBar Initial Release

    Can you please, please, please save the position in SavedVariables instead of relying on the UI


    find me on twitter @scotepi

  • #113

    I'll look into this.

  • #104
    having to reload ui every time i get assist
  • #106
    and the x butten is d/c me when i press it
  • #102
    I keep having the same problem as a few others have noted, where sometimes the flares cause an error and will no longer work, or sometimes cause the game to crash. I believe the error is because of some conflict with Xperl unit frames, but I forgot to copy the error message the last time it popped up. I'll post it the next time I see it.
  • #103
    It won't be specifically xperl, I don't use it (pitbull instead), and get the same.
  • #100
    Hey, I really like this addon but it keeps my game freezing when I use markings or flares. I disable the addon and all is working fin. Its been like 2 months since your last post on this panel. I'm not QQing but will you update the addon soon ?

  • #99
    This addon causes a very annoying problem where opening the interface panel causes all keys to become disabled (leaving only your mouse working)
  • #98
    I know that this addon still works in Patch 4.1 if you click on "Upload Out Dated Addons," but could we get an update. Also, every once in a while I will get an error that will not let me place raid markers. This is easily fixed with /reload ui. That is not a big deal since it only takes 1-2 seconds to reload.
  • #97
  • #96
    Any chance of an update for 4.1?
  • #93
    Cant download it. I click install via Curse Client but nothing's happening in the download interface in Cc.
  • #95
    That'd be a Curse Client issue, not his addon. Manually install it, or install it in the client itself, rather than clicking the 'Instal via' button.
  • #92
    Not so much a 'bug' - but annoying, never-the-less. When you disable the addon (I don't use it for raiding, along with a handful of others), it doesn't save the location. That is, when I re-enable it, it's at it's default position.
  • #90
    Working on all of these issues, expect a new version within the next 2 weeks! Sorry for the delay on updates, but Life has been getting in the way.
