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.

When the job is ran to get character day from the army, it only gets 1 person at a time. Is this normal? This is what I see when I run it manually.

I am having this same issue.

It said that it installed correctly, but for the life of me I cannot find where in the forum I or any other user can set up an event for signing up.

I am wondering if by chance it did not install correctly.

Event Signup Problem

I got this installed without incident, but when I add an event and check to allow for sign-ups, I get a message that sign-up is not available for this event.

I had this installed before and it worked perfect. I don't know of anything that I have done differently, except installed a template mod for the calendar. I reverted those templates back and re-installed the mod with the same result. I have also checked permissions and set them appropriately.

Anybody have an idea what might be wrong. This is an awesome mod and I want to continue using it. I would appreciate any help I can get!

I added a feature that prevents people from signing up more than a week in advance to prevent people from just registering for every event on the calendar and then never visit the forum again.

There is no option to configure it...that I can remember, I will see about making it configurable in a future version.

Event Signup

I have set up multiple events to make sure I was not running into the built in limitation for event signup. When I set it up for 5 days from today, I get a message that the signup for the event is no longer available. When I exceed the 7 day window, then I get dual messages... the event is no longer available for signup AND the event is not yet available for signup due to the 7 day limitation.

I have checked and re-checked everything, but nothing seems to give me a different result. And... yes, with each test, I checked the box to allow event signup.

This looks to be a problem in the new version. I reverted everything back to the previous version and it worked without a problem, so I guess until the problems is resolved, I'll just use the pre-WoTLK version. This is too cool a mod not to have even if it's a bit out of date.

When I attempt to add this I get the following error

Has anyone encountered this?
If I continue, configure all the settings, then create an event. I get a VBDatabase error.

I love this mod, but ended up not using it. If you added a way to draft people on the sign up, then I would use it. As it stands, I use phpraider to do my current sign ups because I can easily draft and people can check it to see if they are going to a raid or not. I would much rather use your mod, so if you ever feel like expanding the functionality of this, that is where I would go next.

Can anybody who has this successfully working please link to your Forum Hosting Privder?

I want to switch hosts since mine has some stupid blocks in preventing this from working.

I think I got this thing installed, but when I go post an Event on the Calendar, it doesn't ask me for a gWOWEvent, thus it isn't being used...

Any ideas?
