Support

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.

Features

  • Allows your users to enter multiple servers and characters
  • Links to either US or EU WoW Armorys.
  • Templated so you can direct links somewhere other than the Armory if you wish.
  • Manually place menu in postbit with $wowchar_menu
  • Optionally automatically add to postbit*
  • Shows formatted links on user profile profile.
  • Unified profilefield compatible with gWoWEvents and gWoWRoster
*Automatic addition of menu may not work with all templates.

Make sure you upload the images to your styles misc directory. I can not assume what your directory would be named, so I have only included the default directory.

I got this installed but it's not showing on the posts display (postbit), only via Profile viewing.

I think I may have changed something in postbit and so it won't show (the option is selected).

Could you tell me what the code is to insert into postbit so I can do it manually where I want please?

Hopefully if you tell me that I will be able to learn more about deciphering xml files to do things like this on my own in future.

Cheers.

Got it, thanks.

I tried putting that into the showroster mod (elsewhere on this site) but nothing appears.

Are you able to offer any quick assistance to get this into there?

If not, nevermind.

Code in showroster_userbits is


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

if you're able to help.

Thanks for any given.

The code is only generated when the default posbit is displayed, trying to use it anywhere else will not work.

Ok thanks.

I have been busting my head with this... for a while today... No matter where I put it it wont show in Postbit. It works perfectly in Postbit legacy, but not in postbit.

I have made a test account for my site:

username: test
password: ecctest

www.excincin.com

Could you or anyone log in and tell me if it shows up for you? Its not showing and I have the Automatic thingy turned to No, and I have tried placing $wowchar_menu in different areas but it still doesnt work.

Any help will be appreciated.

Kildjean

PS. I have also not been able to make the images work either....

Looks like it is working, you need to upload the images to the misc folder specific to your style.

The user profile will display like that currently, I have not made updates to fix that for the changes that were made to latest versions of vBulletin. However, I do see that you got the postbit working.

I could be wrong in my assumption of what this hack would do, but I have the mod working on my profile but it seems only I can see it. Other members try to view it and the mouseover link at the bottom of my postbit doesnt appear for them.

Was this intended for the persons own personal use? If so I think thats kinda silly, I figured the point was to have easy access to your guilds character info with a simple click.

http://www.err32.com/forums and my user is "Fingersniffer" if anyone is interested in trying to help me out.

Most current version of vB 3.6.7 PL1

Ok, to clarify my problem some it might appear to be an issue with the users browser and or firewall settings.

At first I thought it might be a permissions error as it was only seeming to work for admins but then a few other members of the forums tried it in IE and it worked fine. Firefox seems to be the culprit however I use firefox and it works for me.

Could anyone possibly verify, confirm this and maybe let me know what I need to have them change or change or our site etc?
