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

Hey there,

When creating an event (using the latest version, 1.0.8), I get a "Signup for this event is no longer available." if the event lands on the same day that a user tries to sign up. This seems to be regardless of when the signup allowance has been set in the gWoWEvents Configuration. Any thoughts?

Discovered the same problem today.

Event is scheduled for tomorrow night, it disabled signups for the event, even though I have the options set to never disabled signups.

**Edit**

Seems to only affect one event now, the rest appear fine thus far. I will look into how my user created the event and see if maybe something was done differently. I'll post again if I continue to see this happen on more events.

Seems the problem came back. I removed and re-installed again and same problem. All of our events are locking down signups about a day and a half before the event starts, regardless of any settings.

Currently our guild hasn't been utilizing the signup so I have not been able to tweak that feature correctly. I have also been busy with work and other projects.

I will look into this when I have available time.

Anyone come to any solutions for implementing this? Thanks in advance!

Also, after an Armory update on an event in my Calendar, why are my First Aid, Cooking, Fishing and Riding skills all set to 0?

The Armory does not have the secondary Skills info anymore.

It's not possible to retrieve them from the Skills page? I assume they were being pulled from the Character Sheet if that's the case. Ionno, just a thought?

What skills page? the US Armory does not have a skills page anymore, at least not that I can find... I wish it owuld. I would love to add those skills into my Roster.


EDIT: I found them. They are in the Stats. For example - http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...sh&n=Dragonsys (under Skills -> Secondary Skills)
Just need to get the data pulled and added my DB...

just started getting this error
gWoWEvents Armory Import


Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in D:\Hosting\4072979\html\includes\cron\cron.gwowevents.charinfo.php on line 53
Any resolve to this issue ?

Update: I ended up doing this to resolve my issue and all seems to work.

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

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

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.

Error?

When I try to edit the setting for this mod, it won't accept the custom profile field I have set-up from gWowChar. I hit save and it resets the field I enter to 0.

Just enter the field number, enter "12" not "field12".

Aye, was just coming back to say I figured it out =P Thanks!

Great add on... the only change I'd love to see is when signing-up a character, have 3 checkboxes of tank, heal, dps (kinda like the new LFG does it in game) so people could check off which role(s) they would be willing to perform for different events.

Sounds like a nice idea. I am not sure when I would be able to do such a thing. Sadly, we are using the in-game guild calendar more and this mod isn't getting much use anymore by my guild so less motivation for me to work on it.

Nice mod, have it installed as will be doing with your other 2 as well .

Coupla small problems with it, firstly all secondary skills (cooking, first aid, fishing and riding) are showing as zero even though I've been assured by a coupla members they have those skills (I dunno I don't play the game) all the other stats have updated fine from the armoury.

Secondly, and this 'aint a biggy, layout is slight borked for the classes and the warrior at the end is 'scrunched' up with the icon above the name. Am using fluid width boards so it should all set automatically as far as I'm aware??.
