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!

Yes Wayne - that is correct. This calendar and farcaster's will not work side by side but this calendar really only applies to those who play world of warcraft and maybe Farcaster can figure out a way to incorporate some of the features into his calendar. Anyhoo, just a point of thought.

Nice, problem with field id however. I am up to field115, field8 and the like have been passed up a while ago.

You will need cp options for people to file in their id's, it is unlikely they will have the same id's available.

ok installed but can not figure out where to have users signup? I did modify the fields to match mine.

Also your mod seems to use phrases that dont exist?

Alright, installed just fine. Created all of the fields to match up with yours.

However, the table does not create when the event is created. Also, there is no rsvp options like you show in your picture.

What am I missing here?

Also, does Farcaster's Event Attendance have to be installed for this to work, or does this do the job itself?

Because, from what it looks like, the product was either created incorrectly, or Farcaster's addon is required to make this work.

Sorry about that everyone. I forgot to include one important set of instructions. I added that to the top. It was late in the day for me and my brain was a little over-saturated. I added the template step above. Make sure you perform the calendar_showeventsbit step above.

That's next on my list of things to do. In the meantime you can do one of two different things to get around this:

1. edit your profile fields and swap four of them out and you can order the display in whatever way you want.

OR

2. uninstall the addon and edit the .xml file directly and search for field5, field6, field7, field8 and change those field numbers to match the new fields you create. Then, reinstall.

Thanks for the suggestion. It's definitely next on my list.

Farcaster's addon is not compatible with this addon. I corrected the instructions to include the template modifications which I forgot to include. You cannot use both.
