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.

so basically add the edit to the product which in turn makes it in the templates instead of having it for people to manually edit

Nothing really requires the itemstats code. ItemStats was written because wowhead.com didnt exist. Intergration into any code base that said it needs ItemStats can be fixed by creating a function called ItemStats() that accepts a single input (the item string including the [item] bbcode) and returns a wowhead URL or whatever. (hey.. that gives me an idea )

WowRoster is obsoleted with the Warcraft Armory and gryphons gWowRoster product and it is almost always in best practices to use one, centralized source for data than copying it all over, even if it is a cache (how do you update the cache?)


Not trying to say no no no ! to you about what your trying to do, only that before you go and do it, save yourself the time and energy and see if these things already exist first so you don't repeat the work over and over.

Before i put together the wowhead item code product, i had written an entirely new ItemStats type product that worked with vBulletin used wowhead's XML files and everything. Then someone in the original gItemStats plugin posted a link to wowhead's powered.js information and i was like " whats the point? this single javascript file did the work of a dozen or so php functions and several hundred lines of code".

The only thing i need to do to my product now is to add wowheads new multilingual support

WoWRoster has alot more features than gryphon's mod and alot of addons for it and whatever your idea is i hope it works out well for ya and if i can help let me know. You can update WoWRoster's Cache of characters with a plugin called armorysync but you have to manually do it i am working on an offshoot of that plugin for WoWRoster that automatically does that using CRON and i want to get a working vbulletin WoWRoster product that fully integrates it and it uses all vb funtions and the admincp control. Also, yes the wowhead js file does do the work of all that stuff but what happens if i have stuff already parsed and wowhead's site is down (GOD FORBID THAT HAPPEN LOL) The wowhead js file will be unaccessable and my items on my site will not show up. I like the itemstats code and i was just trying to find an easy way to learn some coding for vb so i can make more mods for my guild. I think your mod is awesome but i prefer my mod and i do want to find out more info about the coding and eliminating the need for vb code changes. I would like to know what kind of code i would place in the product xml that fixes the editor error. If you can help please do so i am new to vb coding and would like all the help i can get

I fixed the need for adding the class_bbcode_alt.php file in the mod so it is all internally done.

I've tried emptying the table.
I've also tried http://www.mmohawk.com/forums/itemstats/view_cache.php which shows a french character I can't read.
I've set the "wowhead_icons" folder to 777

What's the problem here? Please help me get this work, Thank you.

Ren

1) The way that the tooltips are displayed are different. I use wowheads tooltip library exclusivly.
2) this mod uses the ItemStats from http://itemstats.free.fr/ to do the brunt of its work. I wrote my own retrieval, cache and http processing code. because of this my entire mod takes up less than 30k of code. the mod in this thread is a 1.5 meg download i believe?
3) This mod may be (for the moment) better suited for those people who run things such as EqDKP
4) This mod caches everything locally. Good if Wowhead ever goes down, this is good becuase you've cached any of your existing items and icons. It does use your own bandwidth/server resources to serve data that wowhead.com is allowing anyone to stream from their web services for no cost at all.

The images are not displaying in the tooltip for me. I see people have mentioned this, but there have been no responses on how to fix this. They are downloading to that icon directory though. Just not displaying on the tooltip.
