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

Are you getting the same error with my hack? Server has gone away?
Yea, its the same error, lost connection to mysql server. I find this odd as each user is making 1 call. Is there a way you can set it to update just 1 user? Or break it down to that level for testing?

I've been hung up suddenly with a fatal error and no cron running since the 12th. Before that, character imports were doing fine. See above. Any thoughts?

I'm getting the same error. *shrugs* I'm not sure what's generating the error since nothing in cron.gwowevents.charinfo.php has changed.

I am getting the following error:


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

This seems to have started after PHP was upgraded to version 5.2.5.

Sorry about the code tag, I am new and did not know about them but I corrected my previous message. Anyway, I figure that the issue for this problem listed in my previous email was that the REALM name in the user added field CAN NOT have a plus (+) sign in it:

If you are receiving the following error:

PHP Fatal error:

Cannot use string offset as an array in /XXX/XXX/XXX/forum/includes/cron/cron.gwowevents.charinfo.php on line 50

I have rewritten the CRON process and it is working fine for me now.

Try replacing ALL of the code in your cron.gwowevents.charinfo.php file with the following:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

If found by grouping by character name you put a lot less stress on the armory. The current SQL Call to get the array of characters that needs to be updated will put the same character in multiple times.

By changing:

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

to:

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

It will only put each character to be updated once, but it will update the info for all events the character is signed up for.

@stevewwm You need to update the field id in the options.

@LostPhoenix, @Eviserator I will look in these changes.

Getting "server has gone away messages", manual update does not work either, and my characters aren't updating in the event page.

Find the following code in cron.gwowevents.charinfo.php

and change it to:

Obviously you have to add your database info. Until I take the time to learn vbulletin and fix it properly lol.

This will put more stress on your SQL server as it opens and closes a connection each time it updates the user.
This fixed my armory updating problem (I also setup that other hack someone posted about grouping characters or something)
