** Discontinued thread http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=183035 for current thread in 3.8 modification areas.

Since Wowhead (and thottbot) have both released an easy method of adding item tips to your website.

http://www.wowhead.com/?forums&topic=3464&p=35822

I then created this mod to be able to easily add this functionality to any vbulletin installation without uploading external files.

The inspiration for this mod comes from http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=141177 , Gryphon gItemStats mod.

Instead of spamming his thread with xml files of this hack, i decided to post here so that people can take full advantage of it, get notices of updates, etc.


Changelog
  • 0.7.5
    • Removed old vbulletin option
    • Updated URL
  • 0.7.4
    • When Item ID is used without a piped option (i.e. [item=12345|lang]Item Name[/item] ) , the default language was never set and rendered all item tags after invalid
  • 0.7.3
    • Added changes provided by sub_ubi, thanks

To Do
  • Export functions from the init_startup hook so that it may be used in other scripts like EqDKP by including the global.php vbulletin file

Not to steal his thunder but my script Wowhead Tooltips support vBulletin 4.0+, my support script runs it on version 4.0.3. Apologies if this is inappropriate. Wowhead Tooltips support every tooltip type currently supported by Wowhead itself, and it also generates its own tooltips from the Armory (US or EU) and other sources.

Uninstalled because you are not responding to questions.

Supported

You should really change that.

Installed wowheadtooltips's Modification and it works as it should and I can get support for it, unlike this Mod.

After struggling with this plugin, then the installation of Wowhead tooltips (BCMath was showing up as disabled even though it's enabled on my server), I decided to poke around at other options and found a surprisingly simple solution that requires no plugins or files to upload:

Grab the code to run the Wowhead's own script from here: http://www.wowhead.com/tooltips. Paste it into your header includes file.
Then create a new BBCode item like this: <a href="http://www.wowhead.com/item={option}">{param}</a>

I hope someone else can put this to use and save themselves the time it took me to figure this all out.

I laughed at wowhead tooltip. Sure it can do a lot more than what wowhead.com provides us, but we don't have to pay for wowhead.com

After long delays I've finally added vbb4 to my guild site, so these mods will get updated again.

I would like to make it clear that the ONLY thing this mod is going to provide is the automatic include of the wowhead power.js script that lets you put mouse overs on wowhead URLs and the ability to turn [item]Item Name[/item] into a tooltip style link, but most importantly NO additional files to upload and manage.

Since wowhead doesnt offer any direct way to distinguish between heroic and non-heroic items through XML (i.e. wowhead.com/item=Boots&xml ), I will have to re-design the method that i use to look up item names.

The problem with searching is with item names that may not be complete or item names that are partial names to acheivements, spells, gear, etc. Without adding a multitude of files to manage each type of search & sort (wowhead tooltips has over 230 files to upload in 29 folders), I won't be adding a huge, massive amount of features.

Still unable to change the color, white links on a white background are annoying.

It looks like wowhead's javascript is pulling a "basic.css" file which overwrites our local color changes with the !important tag. What can we do?

EDIT: Fixed. I edited the xml file and implemented my own colors

Item links are no longer working. I even tested it on your own forums Sweede Old links work, but trying to create a new link of a non-cached item does not.
