What is Grid?
Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.
The compact grid of units lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. It shows as much information as possible without overloading you. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how you see it. It works in both party and raid groups, and supports pets and vehicles.
Want more features? The Grid core tries to include only features which are generally useful for all classes and roles, but makes it easy to add new features with a simple plugin API for developers. Many plugins are already available!
How to use Grid
To open the options window, type “
/grid”, right-click the tab on the Grid layout frame, or right-click the Grid icon on your minimap or DataBroker display.
Because Grid is so configurable, its options can be confusing at first. We recommend taking a few minutes to look through all of the options before asking for help. There is a small in-game Help section in the options panel, and also a small User’s Guide that may be helpful in explaining some of the terms used in Grid, like status, indicator, and priority.
Problem with a plugin?
Contact the plugin’s author for help. The Grid team cannot provide support for third-party plugins.

Grid was originally conceived and written by Maia and Pastamancer in late 2006. Phanx has been the primary developer since late 2009. Jerry wrote the original pet support code. Mikk designed the icon. jlam added some advanced options for auras. Greltok and Stassart have helped a lot with bugfixing. Finally, lots of people have contributed translations!
- Fixed ticket 834 Show offline option broken. Thanks Samuelreus.
- Fixed ticket 833 Layout none in non-English locale. Thanks Elnarfim.
- Package with libraries should include new LibResInfo for ticket 828.
- Mark code for splitGroups as debug in Layouts because the option is marked
as debug. Should fix odd behavior for people who had option enabled before
the option was disabled.
- Updated for WoW 7.0 (Legion)
- Added options for offline and wrong zone groups
- Updated ToC for 6.2
- Fixed autolayout by group: it now shows as many groups as needed to show the highest group with an online player in it when in group mode. (ticket #795)
- Another fix for pets not being displayed (ticket #798)
- Fix for right-click menu enabled on startup despite setting (ticket #807)
- Fix for layout when in a party (not raid) in the world
- Layout size is now based on the maximum group size for the current instance, rather than the actual group size, to resolve several issues (ticket #795)
- Fixed pets not being displayed when using the By Group layout (ticket #798)
- Fixed the Low Mana Warning status not activating (ticket #780)
Known issues in this version
- The background frame does not always resize itself correctly when the group size changes in combat.
- Some group members may still be hidden if your raid is full (20 players in a mythic raid, 30 players in other difficulties) but you have arranged your raid groups so that not all groups are full (eg. only 2 players in group 1). If you use this kind of group arrangement, please post a ticket or in the forum thread to let me know.
- Fixed a number of layout-related issues
- Fixed an error when switching profiles (ticket #783)
- Fixed an issue with the Center Icon size (ticket #785)
- Fixed an issue with the Mouseover status sticking or activating randomly (ticket #791)
- Added a status to display Stagger on monks (thanks Greltok!)
- There is now only one "Raid" layout selection, and the built-in layouts will automatically adjust to match your current instance type and group size.
- There is now a "By Role" layout that will group players by their assigned tank/healer/damager roles.
- There are no longer separate "w/ Pets" layouts; use the "Show Pets" option on the Layout tab to add pets to any of the built-in layouts.
- Temporary fix for raid difficulty detection: LFR, Normal, and Heroic will use your chosen "Flexible Raid" layout, and Mythic will use your "25 Player Raid" layout. In the near future, all built-in layouts will automatically adjust their size for your current raid, and there will only be one "Raid" layout setting.
- Fixed an issue with right-click bindings in Clique (ticket #747)
- Fixed the Mouseover status not triggering when "Show Tooltip" was set to "Never" (ticket #770)
- Fixed another issue with status counts (eg. aura stacks) (ticket #768)
- Fixed the Resurrection status (ticket #745)
Known issues in this version:
- WoW is currently reporting incoming heal and absorb amounts that are much too small, so Grid will also show incoming heal and absorb amounts that are much too small. There is nothing I can do about this other than wait for Blizzard to fix the problem on their end.
