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.

    I know. But there isn't much I can do about that right now since the fix needs some changes in Grid itself. Which are scheduled by Phanx but not yet done. Until then it actually would be easiest for the other Gridaddon to solve this by re-parenting itself to the manabar instead of the healthbar if GridManaBars is present. But I doubt that the author would want to take care of that (I wouldn't :-)

    Im using r119 and mana bar covers indicators. Not the Grid default ones.

    Its acting kinda weird. 1-2 indicators are shown infront of the mana bar, while the other one is hidden. I do a reload and then all indicators are hidden.

    I really like this addon but it doesn't seem to be working with the latest version of Grid. It's not showing up at all. Will there be an update?

    To those who have stated mana bars are not showing up, go to "indicators", in the mana bar section under this heading, find and check "mana". The bars will show up. I consider it a nearly criminal flaw not to have this turned on by default with an option to turn it off, but it's not a bug.
