What is it?

gWoWEvents is a modification for vBulletin which allows you to add World of Warcraft event sign ups to your forum calendar.

If you use this mod, please Mark as Installed, and if you really enjoy this mod, please Nominate for MOTM, and if you really really enjoy this mod, feel free to Support Developer! Thank you!


I use my released mods daily, if I find an issue with them or add features for myself I will release updates. If there are significant bugs or simple feature requests I will do my best to release fixes. Some of my mods rely on fetching data from 3rd party websites, due to the unreliable results, my mods will require users to troubleshoot for themselves if they find the addon is not working for them specifically. I am offering my personal mods that work ok for me for you to use, I am sorry I do not have time to troubleshoot many user specific issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Notes: This mod does not convert or use data from erlicstorms event mod, uses the same Userfield however. Should work ok on earlier version boards.

Options not implemented:
  • Disable Signup Time

MrShides 15 Feb 2008 21:59

you and http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=182986 need to hook up.

Caerydd 15 Feb 2008 22:20

Two Questions

1) Is it compatible with Event Forums?
2) Is it possible to run this on calendar A and Farcaster's Event Attendance on Calendar B ?

Cheers (and glad to see the mod picked up again)

Gryphon 15 Feb 2008 22:22

1) It does not interact with event forums. I may look into that, I dont use the mod.
2) Possibly, I don't use farcasters, however you can limit this mod to specific calendars.

I'll give it a go, I have a bunch of wow players on my site. Right now I just made a bunch of forums for them.
- I never got into the game, but always looking for toys.

Allowed Servers Field: Elune

- Anything else ? (like I have a clue on the game) :D
- I have no clue what a visiting user may use.
- Select "D" yes to all ?

Gryphon 16 Feb 2008 05:09

Should be good to go :)

This is great, thank you for finally releasing this as you know I been bugging you for it :D

One thing I would love to see would a way to list those drafted, those on stand-by and those declined by the raid leader for the upcoming event.

- Perhaps make the user that is raid leader the Mod of the calendar.
- Option per usergroup "Can Modify Sign-Ups"
- calendar.php?do=manage&e=xxx add a plugin to list current users signed up with options to stand-by / declined per record in a table layout

- then there would need to be code option to allow Mod edit the sign-ups for the event
-- declined (delete ?) and option to send e-mail or PM with message
-- stand-by (list their name in a another <div> bellow the current players) and option to send e-mail or PM with message

Thanks for looking into 1, Gryphon :) My guild currently uses threads for signups, so the cross over to a calendar/raid system it would be nice so they can 'discuss' the event while sign ups are listed separately.

I've not upgraded to 3.7 though, and won't be like to until 3.7 goes gold.

however, donations coming yours and Sweede's way at some point, as I really appreciate the work you've both done.

Gryphon 16 Feb 2008 20:25

This should work fine on 3.6

sweede 16 Feb 2008 21:40

I've always wondered, why not have the user profile fields created during the installation of the product?

While it doesnt appear to be any easy APIs that you can use to create the fields, it is rather easy to facilitate this using some of the admin hooks.

I have a plugin that i use on my guild site that adds profile fields automaticly though the admincp and even sets the proper option fields for use across vbulletin.

I'll clean it up slightly and post it as its own plugin with instructions on how to get and use the variables.

I am currently using Elricstorm's mod but found your mod here when I went to go complain about there being no upgrade instructions as promised with the newer version of the product...

Some things I'd like to see, then I'd be all over using your whole WoW package as having integrated mods is hot:

(Please note that I haven't downloaded this yet because a functional calendar is important to my guild)

1) It is important to me to have compatibility with Event Forums. The associated threads being made with calendar events are very useful to us for numerous reasons, so please consider making this happen.

2) I don't see any mention of the stuff that was in the latest version of Elricstorm's which would be nice and helpful, such as formation time, zone, etc.

3) I haven't found a mod that does this, but "<< Previous Event | Next Event >>" buttons would be swell. This may be more of a general calendar thing but if it came with your mod it would be :awesome:

4) An optional place to post WWS report links after the event is done. I know this can just be posted in the body text but a field for it would be dandy, especially if you made an addon that allowed you to list WWS reports by some of the associated calendar info (date, zone).

That's the stuff off the top of my head. I'm looking forward to installing this as soon as I know we won't lose Event Forums compatibility ^_^

Caerydd 17 Feb 2008 00:08

I think WWS links could be added through extra custom fields you make yourself, most likely :) With Farcaster's original addon, I'm using custom fields to enable highlighting of event details and things - lays out stuff nicer than the raid leader having to cut and paste. I assume this would also work with this addon too.

Shall test this out tomorrow, and verily my fellow officers will be blown away.

Edit: regarding event forums, it might be worth contacting thincom2000 (I think that was how it was spelled) as he was the one I know looking at cleaning up and updating event forums.
