If your tooltips are not working or only show gibberish (raw HTML) then you are most likely missing the updated tooltip script. This code has been converted into a mod, add it by going to Control Panel > Site Mods & Get Site Mods > Look for "Modified Tooltips". This is basically what the mod adds:
<style type="text/css">
.tooltip, .preview, .screenshot { cursor:pointer; }
#tooltip, #tooltip2, #preview, #screenshot { color:#dddddd; background:#222222; border: 1px solid #333333; padding:5px; display:none; opacity: 0.9; filter: alpha(opacity=90); text-align:left; border-radius: 1em; -moz-border-radius: 1em; -webkit-border-radius: 1em; }
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
When adding code like HTML, CSS and/or a single <script> tag into a Free Form Text/HTML type widget, you only need switch the editor into [ HTML ] mode.

When adding multiple <script> tags in [ HTML ] mode, the editor consistently strips out the extra script tags. So, in this case you will need to place the editor in Raw/Script mode (link in the upper right corner).
When you add certain HTML tags to the forums like <html>, <head>, <body> or <script>, you need to modify the text inside the tag. you could change the color to match the text around it, but it might be easier to just italicize the words. Here is an example of the tags with the words colored orange:
<html>, <head>, <body> or <script>

Hello Guest & Welcome to my Help-Site (aka test-site).

Since it's difficult to find information on the admin boards, this site was made to help people more easily find and learn how to modify their own GuildPortal site. Hopefully the information provided here will make visiting your site more enjoyable and informative to both you and your users.


With the advent of the new mods system, I will slowly be converting code I have posted on this site into mods.

I don't plan on doing them all!

But, If you would like to see some code turned into a mod, please bump the post in these forums so I can keep track easier.

In each mod I make, I will try (to remember) to include a link back to the original post so you can get more information on now to modify the custom variables and/or css. Or how to better use a mod (like the shout box links). If you need more help, please feel free to post in these or the admin forums.

Please understand that the mods can't all get approved immediately, so please be patient! So far I have these qued up for approval:

  • None

Finding information:

There are three methods of finding information on this site:
  1. Use the "Instructions" box to the left of this welcome message. This "forum post menu" has links to the majority of the tutorials on this site. To reveal this list, click on a topic header like "Basics" to reveal a list of subtopics. By clicking on a subtopic link, the menu will replace this welcome message with the information from the original forum post. But please note that this method should be used as a quick reference only for this material as some of the tooltips and scripting do not work for this displayed information.

    If you find the post you are interested in viewing the original forum post, then click on the link with the MIDDLE mouse button to open it in a new browser tab. If you wish to restore this welcome message, just click on the "Welcome Message" link at the top of the window.
  2. At the bottom of almost every content box you will see a "How to Add this" button. If the content box does not allow adding a button, then a "How To..." content box will be added to that page. Clicking on the link will take you to the original forum post on this help site.
  3. Use the forum search. I have tried to make the title of each forum post as clear as possible. Although, this is not the best method you should be able to narrow down your search fairly easily.
If you have a problem with the script or it's not doing what you want it to do, be sure to click on the link in the forum post at the top named "GuildPortal admin site link to original post". It will take you to a duplicate post in the admin forums where others might have had the issue.

How the sites are arranged:

  • Help-Site (this site) - Hosts the forums, has the most modules and scripts, and has a different theme for each tab (theme selector now on this page)
  • Test-site 2 - Welcome page & theme selector... (I have plans on changing stuff around here, stay tuned!)
  • Test-stie 3 - Different style for each content box
  • Server Status site - These sites use php, so I can't host it here on GP. But currently it has a server status for Aion, LOTRO, Warhammer and World of Warcraft.

In Progress (last updated 8/28/2011)
  • Very slowly! migrating images from photobucket to my guild files
  • Adding code from these forums into the new mod system as I have time and if I see a request (it'll bump it up on my priority list).
  • Writing an ebook: Customizing GuildPortal - still so much to do! - but I haven't even looked at it now in ummm 6 months =(

All the code I have written on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. So basically, use it however you want.
