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!

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.
  • Links icons to wiki.
  • Choose calendar to use
  • Limit use by usergroup
  • Multiple server support
  • Shows extended character data, skills, talents.
  • Some features translated for French and German
  • Character data is fetched by cron so calendar doesn't suffer slowdown
  • Templated so you can direct links somewhere other than the Armory if you wish.
  • Unified profilefield compatible with gWoWRoster and gWoWChar

@soothius, just create an event and make sure to check the box to enable signup.

If I run the same SQL call from phpmyadmin it goes fine. I think vBulletin is closing the connection to the database while the cron is running.

How long should it take to import armory data after submitting an event? I created an event and it's just sitting there saying Awaiting armory data import....

Jim,

Looks like you have the same issue as me. Login to your admin and check your scheduled tasks. Select gWoWEvents and select run now. If you get an error then we are in the same boat.

Note: still haven't installed, so take it for what it's worth:

The feature with the by-event stat pulling sounds cool, and having a "history" of stats is a neat idea, but I'm going to say that I personally would probably disable this as it's a feature that doesn't concern me personally and seems bound to have performance issues, especially with Armory's unreliable nature. Perhaps this could be a main-switch option, or perhaps it could be by-event.

I personally would vastly prefer that it pull from the same table as the roster.

Still waiting to hear that it will work with event forums :P

paging across multiple events

Ok, so I posted a little earlier about how sign ups span across multiple events. My original thought was it did the to ranged events because essentially they were all the same event as the sign up mod saw it.
So as much of a pain in the..... as it is We corrected it by posting indivdual events on each day. The issue however still persists when you have more than one event on the same day. The sign up for one event will span over to the next.

www.shadowwalkersguild.com Wed 2-27 would be a good example of this.

I got this problem because of a timeout limit I think. Try increasing the timeout value for MySQL queries (or ask your host to).

I have the same issue with the armory imports just going and going and going. I ran the job manually from the admin panel, got no error, it said it completed the job and showed the characters it imported. Back to calendar and still acting like its hung on importing, no info is shown at all.

I would love to see perhaps icons, say if an event has a trigger word in the title such as "Black Temple", "BT", "Temple", etc.) it would show the BT icon on the calendar. It would also be very cool to be able to set the number of signups or the classes necessary, etcetera, though that becomes massively complicated, I know.

Finally, it would be neat to see it perhaps even tied in with a bit of a revamped "Upcoming Events Module" for vBadvanced to also show the corresponding icon (BT, TK, MH, etc.), perhaps even number of attendees (20/25, etc...) and the like.

This is a far superior mod to the previous, I really enjoy seeing you and Sweede compete for most WoW mods, it makes for a some great Guild Forums.

Hopefully it eventually went through? This is common when the Armory is unreachable.

Thanks, some of these suggestions have also been requested by my guild and are on my see-if-I-can-do list.
