World of Warcraft Event Calendar
Mod Version: 1.2.7, by elricstorm (Member) elricstorm is offline

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (16 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 96
Released: 19 Apr 2007 Last Update: 07 Jul 2007 Downloads: 1424
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Is in Beta Stage  

What does this Mod do?



This is a calendar mod that supports events created for World of Warcraft that allows signups for mains and alternates. Data for mains and alternates are pulled from the world of warcraft armory automatically and listed/displayed in a table format based on the style of your current site.

Current Version



Current beta version = 1.2.7 (recommended)
Current stable version = 1.2.6

Whether you are upgrading or installing from new, you ALL need to download the instructions and read them. There is a section for New Installs and a section for Upgrading. Inside there is also a NEW .CHM file (help file) that will also make it easier to read. I kept the instructions file in there as well but it's renamed to wowcalendar.txt instead. Review wowcalendar.chm if you are able to. It works better.

What is required?



You will essentially need to perform:
  • One product XML import
  • Two PHP file uploads
  • One Profile addition for User Profiles
  • One Template Modification
  • Uploading image files to the specified path listed in the instructions
Review the "instructions" contained in the zip file before installing this product.

Creating a Calendar Entry



When you create a calendar entry, single, recurring, etc. - make sure you enable users to signup (located at the bottom of the new calendar event form) (see the screenshot listed in this post). By default, it should place an automatic signup checkmark in that box. Once you submit, users will be able to signup.

Alternates



If you have alternates on, alternates can be used to signup with (only if people have added additional characters to their user profile. At this time, the calendar only reads the top 3 lines in the profile box so any more characters listed will not be usable in the calendar.

(i.e. if you have 7 characters listed, only the first 3 will be usable.

Armory Data



Armory Data is pulled as soon as a "registered" user checks the calendar event. This data is then replaced into the armorydata table for use later on with the signups. Remember to set your server and your locale as well. If your server has two words (ex. Scarlet Crusade) you would input Scarlet+Crusade in the server box. If you play on a US server you would put US in the locale box. If you play on a European Server you would input EU in the locale box. Make sure you set all appropriate options.

Options for your Calendar System



Go into your vb options and you will find two separate sections for setting options - one is for settings and one is for styles. You can change any options in here. Future revisions will include more substitutions/changes in this area.

SPECIAL THANKS TO:


Farcaster:
For his initial MOD and ideas which got me started and into customizing the entire calendar. Farcaster's Event Attendance can be found at: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=129088

Gryphon:
For helping with the original wow parser code and for giving me some tips/advice for working to implement it with the calendar system. In addition, Gryphon, formerly Blackjack, worked with me deeply to allow both this calendar and his current gWoWCharacter mod to be cross-compatible. He also helped with localization. Many thanks!

No problems with recurring events on two test boards. Not sure exactly what you mean but most likely a vbulletin thing.

I'll add that to the next set of instructions. Yep, your hosting provider needs to install cURL library for your PHP compile. It's a very simple standard library that all hosting providers should include by default now anyways due to authetication.

Try placing an data insert in the armorydata table for your ID and see how the display works. You do not need to create more custom fields to get this to work with yours.

If you want, PM me and provide me a testuser account that has some admin privs to it and I'll look over your board and tell you what's going on. I won't be able to look over anything until tomorrow afternoon (sunday) but it's your call mate.

Take care.

Check your phpinfo and find out yourself if it's there. Look to see what you have.

You should see something like:
CURL support enabled
CURL Information libcurl/7.13.1 OpenSSL/0.9.7f zlib/1.2.2.2 libidn/0.5.15

Ive told them if they dont fix it i will move host... they are...

Avoid them, The technical support is very poor, and my website has been down for 4 days....

Any advise on decent European host?

Hrm, haven't looked deeply into hosting but you want to try to stay away from virtual hosting accounts if at all possible because you usually don't have any way to edit things yourself.

I would look for a hosting company that either provides "dedicated virtual hosting" with SSH capability and root access. If you can find that you should be fine. I use IPOWER which provides that capability and I'm able to load and install anything on my dedicated virtual server.

The error you had listed above is definitely an issue with curl not being installed/configured as a library. Let me know how it works out mate. In the interim, I'll see what I can do about providing a "non-curl" php file shortly. I moved the parser to a functions file so that I could eventually provide non-curl and curl support for people.

Hyrel, check your PMs mate and read my notes. I looked over your site and I'm 100% positive it's mysql related. Read notes, run tests per my notes, and let me know what you find out.

  • Download your site.
  • When you go to your new hosting provider you point your domain to the new DNS and 24 hours later or less it's in effect. (new hosting provider can help you with that)
  • Upload your site.

I would do it similarly to that because your old hosting provider probably doesn't do file transfers.

Hyrel, read your PMs mate. I found your issue and posted why it was happening. If you fix the two settings I gave you, it will work 100%. Thanks mate.

Hey elric,

first let me say that this hack is absolutely incredible! I'll consider to donate for this...

But i have a little issue with your Mod. Maybe it's only my fault, but if you have special chars in the charname (like or ), it seems not to load the informations from the database or from the armory.

How can you override this?

See an example here:
http://cm.digitalrose.de/forum/calen...y=2007-6-9&c=1

and meant is this character:
http://armory.wow-europe.com/#charac...n=Jah%C3%AAira

Greets,

Venom

Greets,

Venom
The simple answer is I will have to use urlencode on the name before it's passed to the URL. Otherwise the URL can't decode the special characters. I'll do a couple of tests on this. As long as there are no other special characters like apostrophes etc. in a wow name - this should not be an issue and should be a rather simple fix.
