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

Also, I can not find a Calander Select option... where is that supposed to be because I do not have it in the gWoWRoster settings area...

Thanks.

Problems... STILL

Still having problems with ver 1.07 of this mod. Can sign up for events if they are either ranged or recurring, but not single. Could part of the problem be the apparent 4 or 5 typos in the code, as they read singup instead of signup.

I'd like to see this problem worked out. I love this mod and went back to the 1.05 version for a bit because it worked, but it is out of date and my users know it. At this point, I'm ready to uninstall it and go with something else since the author's only responses to several of us (if we were lucky enough to receive one) seem to insist that we are either installing or using the mod incorrectly and that is the cause of the problem when this thing obviously has problems.

Please take a look into this and see if you can get it resolved. I really enjoy this mod and want to keep using it. I have other options here, but none of them are as nice as this one when it works!

I just looked and changed the xml file find & replace all singup / signup and single event still says i cannot sign up, only the other events allow signup.

Also Armoury update does not work, it just goes straight to done on a manual update, while i was testing a ranged event and it was fetching armoury info i ran a update task and it imported events, well it said it did but they do not show up on the calender.

Yeah... I was kind of excited when I found the typos because I thought that would fix the problem, but there is something else wrong besides. I hope this gets resolved soon... if you've ever seen this mod in action, you know why I'm holding out as long as I can before moving to something else. If you haven't... it's VERY nice!

If you get the problem figured out, lemme know 'cause I'm anxious to get this thing re-installed and put into use!

Thanks for this mod(and the other gWOW mods!).
ive had this mod working in the past, but recently updated to 1.0.7.

After the update, the calendar had the link "Add characters to your profile to singup for this event." and no place to sign up. Im sure the Profile Field ID is correct... have i missed something?

update- got it. had to type in the server name. now have the same failing cron jobs people have already posted. im trying to get it set up in my server cron now.

Request:

Configurable fields to query and/or put into the skills listed on the events.

If I had to pick a couple right this second, I'd add spell damage bonus/healing bonus and attack power/ranged attack power. But fully configurable would be nice.

Hmm. Restrict levels for an event?

Require approvals? Sort of a queue for Signed up, which is then either Approved/Standby/Denied. The event creator (or better yet, a particular usergroup) can do the queue moderation.

Finally: require a particular usergroup to create an event? I suppose I can do that with the calendar permissions though.

Just thinking out loud here, I guess. None of this is terribly easy, I suspect.

Thanks for great mod. *checks Installed*

Signup Problem Resolved

I think I figured out what was going on. In addition to the typos on the signup variables, there were two items that were flip-flopped. Once I traded places with these two buggers... everything seemed to work.

You are looking for DATELINE_TO_USER and DATELINE_FROM_USER... they only appear once in the XML... just flip-flop them and you should be good. At least everything started working for me. Once the change was made, single-event signup started working and I was unable to sign up for events that had already passed.

If you already have 1.07 installed, but not working correctly, simply make the changes to the XML and re-import it (I did it with overwrite enabled). If you're not comfortable with editing the XML file... I've attached mine. Just be aware that this may not have solved ALL problems, but it did resolve mine as far as I can tell thus far.

I'm just stoked 'cause I get to start using this mod again!

Can I make a feature request to add moderation for raids? IE

Mage1 signs up and is placed into the queue with a comment of Yes On Time

Officer1 then has to go into the event and moderate Mage1 as an Active member of the raid.

Thanks for the feature suggestion. It certainly is possible, I just don't see myself having time to develop that relatively soon.

I would love to see these above, if I had to pick any of them it would be configurable stats shown from armory and Approved/Standby/Denied option.

Signup for this event is no longer available.

Hi to all, i really like this mod, but i have a small problem.
i use vbulletin 3.8 and gwowevents 1.0.8.
even when i use in options "Choose when signups should be disabled for an event." "Never". it is not possible to signup on any event on the actual date.
example: Event is on 26. January, signup is only possible till 25. January. on 26 January i get the message: Signup for this event is no longer available.

for me this function is very important for maby-people, to change the status.

further one more question:
somebody know a way to use "Forum Events" or is there any other mod to start a forum thread for each "Raid"

Thank you very much for your Help.

PS, next problem, sorry.
not possible to ad a member with the function "yes, Late"
