[CDB] Game Tooltips

Post by PayBas » Thu Aug 14, 2014 1:48 pm

Game Tooltips

This extension allows you to enable tooltip scripts for various games. They generally work by looking for links on the page currently being displayed to the user, and add a JavaScript mouse-over effect with context specific to the page the link refers to.

Spanish translation here.

Note about translation
The translation of the word "Tooltip" -> Is "Ventana de ayuda contextual" or "Consejo emergente" or "Ayuda emergente"... :? :roll:
But I think that all users know what a "Tooltip"

For this reason, the word "Tooltip" or "Tooltips" is not translated.

Best regards. ;)

This is perfect for a LoL forum I am working on! Thanks for this extension. Will be testing and will get back with any bugs for you. :)

EDIT: Call me slow, but I can't figure out how to get this to work properly. Can you give an example of how to get the tooltip to pop up. Is there a BBCode that I need to add or something?

I included a link in the ACP module which links to the website of the tooltips script provider. Click on that for more information.

Usually, its enough to simply copy-paste the URL from your address bar (when visiting the item database) into a post.

Great! :)

But, I need something for boardgames, to takes informations from boardgamegeek.com boardagame's database.

Only if they provide an API with an existing JS script to hook into it. I looked around on the website you referred to, but I don't see any "tooltips" script whatsoever.

BGG maybe doesn't provide, but there is AJAX ready BGG API. Maybe this can be useful?
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1139853 ... -out-there

Code: Select all

$.ajax({
      method: "GET",
      dataType : "json",
      url: "http://bgg-api.herokuapp.com/api/v1/search",
      data:{
          query:"Dominion"
      },
      success: function(oResult)
      {
          console.log(oResult);
          // Do Some Stuff
      },
      error : function(oResult)
      {
          console.log("Error" + oResult);
      }
});
And there is XML API:

First thank you for this.

Secondly I am operating a forum for FFXIV and i saw that you had a setting for FFXIV but it references zam. However on zams website it seems that the database for FFXIV is now at http://xivdb.com/ they do provide a tooltip http://xivdb.com/?tooltip would it be possible for you to include this option in your extension please?

Hey thank you for your amazing work Paybas.

I installed this extension all ok with phpbb 3.1 and pbwow 3.0.

It seems to be all well and running. However, using a wowhead link (for instance http://www.wowhead.com/item=34113 ) there aren't any tooltip showing up, whether I use a [url] or not, once I posted it.

Any other script needed ? Any other guidance ? (sorry, not a massive phpbb expert)

Again, thank you !
