API : Forums : Tickets

Guilder is an addon written to attempt to make everyday guild life simpler and more enjoyable. The addon contains modules for guild admin as well as party/raid utilities (This addon uses Ace3 and libdatabroker)

Guilder has been rewritten and now uses a new API. If you have version 1, please delete it and its saved variables before installing this version!

Note Version numbering will be x.y.z, where x is a major rewrite of the framework, y is added functionality and z is bug fixes.

Text and Tooltip

Note Text will only be visible if you are using a "bar" addon like ChocolateBar or FuBar (with Broker2FuBar).


Shows one of the following options:

  • Guilder - default option
  • 2 online - only number of officers online
  • 2/3 online - online / total
  • 3 officers - only total



Note offline members can be hidden

  • Joe - in green for online
  • Mary (Martha) - in yellow, Officer's Name (Alt Name)
  • Sam - in red for offline

Modules (Optional)

  • Name of module - Enabled or Disabled

Hint (Optional)

  • A reminder of the Click combinations and what they do

Main Window

  • Here you can specify how ranks are set up (for the tooltip window) as well as specify what should be shown:


The following module(s) are currently working

Busy Responder

  • Responds to selected members when they send you a whisper.
  • You can choose to also respond to anyone in these categories: Officers, Guild, Raid, Party and Friends.
  • Note The responder will not respond to any of the above categories if it isn't selected.

Crowd Control

  • Enables you to assign people/tasks to the raid icons and then announce it.
  • You can announce it on the SAY channel
  • If you are the party leader, you can also announce it on the PARTY channel
  • If you are the raid leader, or a raid assistant, you can also announce it on the RAID channel
  • If you are a GM or an officer, you can also announce it on the GUILD or OFFICER channel


  • Can query anyone in the group with Guilder installed and show you their consumables status.
  • This is useful, since range isn't an issue like with other consumables checking addons.

Quick Share

  • Allows you to share notes with other players with Guilder installed.
  • If the note contains a macro, you can also save it to your own macros from here.

Roster Dumper

  • Allows you to dump the entire guild roster into a comma or tab delimited list for you to copy and paste from.
  • Note Tab delimited lists are useful to paste the roster into a spreadsheet.

Version Checker

  • Checks the versions of addons for anyone using Guilder.

Development Status

In Development

  • Remote Control - allows you to enable/disable selected Guilder modules for other players if you are a guild officer. It also allows you to request the raid leader to do a ready check if you are a raid assistant.

Being Considered

Mass Inviter

Tool to allow you to mass invite by level, rank, etc.

Mass Mailer

Tool to allow you to send a in-game mail to selected members of the guild.


Display information when entering a zone, specifically for dungeons/raids.

Still To Do

  • Make WIM behave by not showing guilder messages
  • Continue module development
  • Allow user to specify click combos

    hi, for some strange reason I am unable to see the mod ingame. On the loading screen it shows it is selected and installed. but there is noting on my "chocolate bar-mod" nor anywhere in Ace3 a trace of the addon. When I type /guilder all I get the standard Blizzard help bla bla bla. is there a slash command for the mod configuration?

  • Avatar of onaforeignshore onaforeignshore Dec 17, 2009 at 07:02 UTC - 0 likes

    I've reclassified it under Miscellaneous, since there isn't a specific category for raiding.

    It is more a raid addon than a "Guild" addon. A rename would be good. Cause it is kind of irritating.

    Tha base is guild, but all modules are more like raiding.

    Maybe "raid-guilder" would be appropriate.
