[ABD] World of Warcraft Character List

Post by drumgirl67 »

Modification Name: World of Warcraft Character List
Author:drumgirl67

Modification Description:: This mod will allow users to add World of Warcraft characters to their forum account, displaying both as a list page and by their forum avatar on posts.
Modification Version:: 0.2.1

A WAR version can be found here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1159055
An Age of Conan version can be found here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1031855

Features: (hopefully) :mrgreen:
  • List page containing necessary character info done
  • Links from list page to forum profiles done
  • Ability for users to manually add characters done
  • Ability to differentiate between main and alt characters done
  • Main character information displayed near forum avatars done
Features that I will eventually get around to (no promises):
  • Data pulling from the armory done
  • Expansion to Warhammer Online character list
  • Expansion to Age of Conan character list done
  • Main character information shown in user profile
Demo URL: http://www.5thhorizon.com/char_test
Demo Username: test
Demo Password: test123

Modification Download: http://phpbbcharlist.googlecode.com/fil ... %20021.zip
(NOTE: don't forget to refresh both your template and theme after installing)

I've done some modifications on my guild's forums before, but this is the first mod I'm going to attempt to go "public" with so I apologize in advance for any taboos or common practices I might miss ;)

Note: This mod is based off of one I found for phpbb2 for my guild's forums. The mod was not listed here on this site, and I am not sure who the author was, but I would be more than willing to give credit where it's due if anyone happens to know.

Yes I plan on making a subsilver2 version eventually. I find it frustrating when mods only work with one or the other and I don't want to frustrate anyone 8-)

I was hoping to get a demo board up but the modx script creating website is down :|

But yeah things get done fast when you're a programming intern with zero things to do :D

I'm not currently playing AoC though I plan on making an AoC version. It would be a big help if someone were to make a list of what an AoC version would require as far as a list of races or classes (I'm really not familiar with the game at all).

I am nearly done with a test version of the mod, really just waiting for the modx generator to come back up to try a fresh install for a demo board.

Would it be possible to turn this into a full featured roster mod? What I'm looking for is an application form which would create a post in a private forum with an applicants information, and then automatically add their supplied character info to the character list that you've created under an applicant rank which could then be promoted to initiate or member by a guild officer.

At the moment I'm using a modified posting script which basically gives an applicant a form to fill out, then it submits the form as a post to a forum that they're not allowed to view, so it looks bad when they're greeted with a "you're not allowed to view this forum" message after submitting the app heh.

I have a mod that was written for phpbb2.x by a former guild officer which does everything I'd want but I have no idea how to update it for phpbb3. I could share it if it'd help.
