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:

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!

Not too sure about that yet Juum. Thanks to Blackjacks help, I am now working on implementing code features that will incorporate the armory into the my calendar mod. I'll look into the other code and think about it though.

I love this addon, it's made things much easier for me. Thank you so much for making it. I do have one question.

When people RSVP, it's currently placed in alphabetical order. Is it possible to have the RSVP listed by date? This would help me immensely. Is this a change I could make or it would it be something that would require a bit of work?

Thanks again for this great addition to my forum.

In the vboptions area for the calendar there is a sort feature. You can sort by class, date, or by name there.

This installed easy,

but mine doesn't look yours when they sign up (see screenie attached). Also it is not counting the number per class to sign up.


Thanks for such a great mod!

Also 2 things I'd love to see in the future... on the cal page under the event x/25 confirmed x/x on stand by

the other to set the first set amount per class as signed up the rest on standby. GEM and Guild Cal both do this. This will prevent 10 mages from signing up from Kara and 8 +++++ing they got put on standby *grin* when only 2 of them get to go. If the event allowed 3 mages and 2 signed up yet it would show mages 2/3 etc...

again great hack! hope we can work the bugs out to make it flawless... Now we just need a DKP system like this and guilds can be fully powered by vB!

Thanks for hack - it's very interesting

Have one small problem - this hack don't calculate Total Signed Up for each class (see an attachment for more information).

As you can see - we have 2 members, but we don't have digit 1 in column Priest and Shaman. How to fix this issue?

Issue with class counts is fixed. I changed

to..

..which corrected the problems for the class variables.

Upgrade and overwrite the product using the new one I uploaded version 1.1.1.

Stabatha, which sort is that on? Is that on time sort? I'll fix it if it is. I'll add that to the next revision.

Okay I have no problems with any tables on any of the sorts. Are you sure you followed all of the instructions I outlined? Also, if you did, what other "calendar" mods might you be using or any that utilize calendar functions? It might be that you have a conflicting mod. I have zero problems on any of the sorts.

More importantly, the table you are having trouble with is utilizing the calendar_signup_bit template if that helps you isolate this further. I spoke to several other people who use the calendar and they have no problems with the sorts and the table display. I also checked cross-compatibility with Firefox and IE. I have not tested with "other" browsers besides these two.

As for "class max" - definitely next on my plate. I'm also looking into armory data but that's further down the road. I'm able to utilize armory data but I don't want to have to do a full rewrite at this time. For now, I'd rather maximize functionality and get all the nice features such as alternates, and class max limits.

Updated to 1.1.2

See notes in section for what has been revised/updated. If you already have the calendar installed, all you need to do is import and choose "overwrite".

Thanks.

After reinstalling the problem I had before is fixed but now when I post an event I can't choose to allow signups on that event?
