BankItems v6.1.0.0

Feb 25, 2015 (r226 on wowace)
For use with Live Servers v6.1.0.19678

An addon that remembers the contents of your bank, bags, mail, equipped, currency, auction house, void storage and display them anywhere in the world. Also able to remember/display the banks of any character on the same account on any server, as well as searching and exporting lists of bag/bank items out.

Type /bi or /bankitems to see what is currently in your bank. You must visit your bank once to initialize.
Type /bigb or /bankitemsgb to see what is currently in your bank. You must visit your guild bank once to initialize.

  • /bi clear : clear currently selected player's info
  • /bigb clear : clear currently selected guild's info

Read below for other commands.

BankItems will also remember the contents of Guild Banks if you are able to view them. Use /bigb to see them. Note that Guild Banks are a shared repository and changes can occur to it by other members of your guild.

  • Curse:
  • Project site:


These plugins allow clicking on the panel/plugin icon to open BankItems, giving a summarized view of inventory slots and money of each character on the same realm, and deleting data with the menu quickly.


  • /bi : open BankItems
  • /bi all : open BankItems and all bags
  • /bi allbank: open BankItems and all bank bags only
  • /bi clear : clear currently selected player's info
  • /bi clearall : clear all players' info
  • /bi showbuttun : show the minimap button
  • /bi hidebutton : hide the minimap button
  • /bi open charname : open bank of charname on the same server
  • /bi charname : open bank of charname on the same server
  • /bi search itemname : search for items
  • /bis itemname : search for items
  • /bigb : open BankItems guild bank
  • /bigb clear : clear currently selected guild's info

Most options are found in the GUI options panel.

Not a bug

If you close your bank after retrieving/storing an item in it too quickly and the server hasn't updated your inventory, BankItems is unable to record the change to your bank when the item actually moves later. The WoW API does not give you any data about your bank once BANK_FRAME_CLOSED event has fired.

Tooltip information regarding items on the Auction House, Mailbox and Guild Bank(s) may be out of date and thus be inaccurate. They will only be updated on your next visit to the respective places.

    I have another change ready to show in bags and player bank the pet species textures instead of the generic caged texture

    The change works for the bank player items and items in bags, but the same code does not works with guild banks, i wont commit any change to guild banks for these, onlly to bags and player banke, the ones were the change work

    Also, the command /bi when using to close the bank item frame does not close guild bank frame, void frame and componente bank frame. It should close all frames or just bank item frame?

    I didnt see the coments before. I had made some fixed about the search and filters, if you dont have a problem i will continue making commits with things i see in Blizzard UI that does not exits in BankItems

    I have almost complete the adaption of the GuidBank frame to make it compatible with the filter option, like the normal bank and bags

    Regarding Public Domain, that is a no. This prevents anyone stealing the zip for re-hosting on another website for profit purposes (has happened before with the WoWMatrix debacle). Torhal is in the right of this. Most addon authors have converted their addons to ARR as a consequence of that drama. We want addons to be "open", but not at the expense of websites leeching off others work.

    I've added JackTripper as a Maintainer, if anyone else would like to contribute (and know how to use SVN/Git), please PM me. :)

    <<reply 2371431="">>

    At the very least if you could mark it is "Active" again:

    Project Management -> General -> Edit Project -> Development Stage -> Release

    That way it will flow back into Curse.

    And, yes, to help thwart it dying, name as many people as you can find as maintainers/moderators. I hate WoAce for not letting a project be truly open.

    Edit: Oh, and please change it to Public Domain:

    Project Management -> General -> Edit Project -> License -> Public Domain

    that was Torheel can't come in and complain about copyright. I cloned it on GubHib and called it Public Domain, even though strictly it is still officially called "All Rights Reserved". If you do the formality of marking it as public domain, we can tag all the files as public domain.

    @Pakka: Go

    There were also other people that made a lot. nbluewiz from curse made even more updates than me. I was maybe the one most shouting :)

    At curse comments there is again more recent version to download.

    BIG Thanks to Mornadan and jackTripper for fixing and updating - BankItems is really simple and useful! Didn't wanna miss it :-)

    Well this is a bit messy. I personally haven't played WoW for about 3-4 years, and now that BankItems has finally broken, a number of people have stepped up to fix the code!

    Anyone can commit to the BankItems repo, though only JackTripper has done so so far, perhaps it will be easiest if I add him as an addon maintainer so he can tag it as well?

  • Avatar of Mornadan Mornadan Oct 18, 2014 at 20:13 UTC - 0 likes

    Another update.


    - fixed Reagent Bank size
