Customizable Roster (Member List)
[How to] get a working Guild/Clan Roster

Note: This modification is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, support will no longer be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. Please see the 3.7 release of this modification for future updates here.


This Mod started off as a [How to] template modification. I have since added in permission control and an installer. Those that install this Mod will need to make adjustments to two templates and one phrase depending on what you want displayed. I'll include instructions for each step as well as optional changes you can make at your decretion.

Click the following link for a Guild Roster preview:

You'll notice that I use the "Extra Profile Fields Page" by Wired1. It isn't needed for the Roster, but I think it makes the field updates look nicer for the users.


Step 0: If you are upgrading from a previous version, save a copy of your old showroster.php and rename your showroster templates (I recommend giving them an underscore prefix; Example: _SHOWROSTER).

Step 1: Download the attached file.

Step 2: Upload the files to their correct directories.
Upload the showroster.php to the /forum/ directory.
Upload the bitfield_showroster.xml to the /forum/includes/xml/ directory.
Upload the spacer.gif to the /forum/images directory if you plan to use avatars.
Step 3: Admincp > Plugin & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product
Import the product-showroster.xml file.
Step 4: Admincp > Languages & Phrases > Phrase Manager > Phrase Type: ShowRoster > showroster_title --> Edit
Change this to whatever you want as the title of your roster.
Step 5: Admincp > User Profile Fields > Add New/Update User Profile Field
Add all the Profile Fields you plan to use and keep track of their number(s) (i.e. field6, field7, etc.).
Step 6: Admincp > Styles & Templates > Expand > ShowRoster Templates > showroster_header
This template contains the headers for each of your columns. Add/Edit/Remove columns to your preference. Be sure to update the colspan to the number of columns you have.
Step 7: Admincp > Styles & Templates > Expand > ShowRoster Templates > showroster_userbits
This template gets the data from each of the fields you want to have viewed on your roster. Add/Edit/Remove columns and/or the nowrap="nowrap" to your preference. Be sure to update each of the field#'s to match the fields from Step 5.
Step 8: Admincp > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager > Edit Usergroup
  • Set "Access - Should this usergroup have access to the Showroster page?" to Yes for whatever groups you want to have permissions to access the showroster page.
  • Set "Viewable - Should this usergroup be viewable on the Showroster page?" to Yes for the groups you want to have appear on the showroster page.
All instructions are included in the instructions.txt and optional.txt.



v1.1.3 - April 22, 2007
  • Added 'Who's Online' plugin to the installer (Thanks m002.p).
  • Made an update to the optional.txt file for changing the default sort.

v1.1.2 - April 20, 2007
  • Added sorting to the roster. This is optional and will work without adding the sorting features.

v1.1.1 - April 19, 2007
  • Small update. Just added total member count.

v1.1 - April 5, 2007 (Mod Revamp)
  • Revamped everything. There is now an installer to do most of the work for you.
  • The installer adds two new fields to your usergroup table. This allows you to set permissions for the showroster rather than using the showgroups permissions.
  • Removed a few options from the optional.txt file since they are now a part of the mod.

v1.03 - April 2, 2007
  • Added some code back to the showroster.php so join date, last activity, and usernames HTML markups could be used.
  • Changed $user[username] to $user[musername] in the showroster_userbits template. This will allow HTML markups to the usernames again.
  • Added instructions on how to change which usergroups appear on the Roster.
  • Added optional.txt to the zip for optional changes.

v1.01 - March 27, 2007
  • Changed a few variable names.
  • Changed template names.
  • Removed a lot of unneeded code from the showroster.php.
  • Added the ability to include user avatars.
  • Added a counter to keep track of how many users in each usergroup.

v1.01 - March 9, 2007
  • Removed a lot of unneeded code from the SHOWROSTER template.
  • Fixed a couple code problems.

v1.0 - March 6, 2007 (Initial Release)

Love this hack. Thanks heaps - just what I was looking for.

Is there anyway to fix column widths? My different groups have different alignments which looks a little wacky.

Sarcoth, would you be willing to expand this mod for some money? I lead a multi-gaming guild and this roster, although nice, is single-game with no historical info. What I need is to define games, game servers, and their characteristics (races, classes, sub-classes, levels, etc.), let every board user enter their historical character data for every game and server I've defined, and then show a roster for the usergroups I select with the ability to narrow down by game and/or server. If you do this, it'll be THE definitive mod for gaming guilds.

How would I go about setting this mod up for people who wish to add their alt characters to the roster?

Any help would be appreciated.

I am willing to pay as well.

Sorry if this has already been asked. I was looking through and found a post about LOTRO, which is what I'd like to use this for. It gave me the impression that there is only 1 line, and therefore character, per forum account. That being said, you can't add alternates?

In LOTRO you can have up to 7 characters per user account so that you can play around with different classes, etc. There isn't a way to have multiple characters per account?
