Using WoWDigger Tooltips

GuildPortal admin site link to original post

GuildPortal has added tooltips from WoWDigger.com, but only on the Calendar page.These tooltips are used in the loot drops section of the eventcalendar. But you can also use it in the forums, if you add the script below into your header area or a free form text/HTML box on your Forum's page:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.guildportal.com/Cms/wowDiggerTips.js"></script>
All your members haveto do is type in the name of the item, as follows:

[item type="preload"]Cloak of darkening[/item]
[item type="preload"]Dragon Hide Bag[/item]
[item type="preload"]Satchel of Spoils[/item]
[item type="preload"]Cloak of darkening[/item]
[item type="preload"]Dragon Hide Bag[/item]
[item type="preload"]Satchel of Spoils[/item]

Advantages:
  1. Your members can use an [item] tag to link to the tooltip, so there's no need to go into HTML mode to add the quality class that the WoWHead.com tooltips require.
  2. If you add type="preload" it will automatically change the item quality color on page load. Otherwise, it won't change until you hover over the link, then the link automatically changes from a link to search for an item to a direct link with item quality color.
Disadvantages:
  1. You have to hover over the link to get the color change.
  2. WoWDigger sucks - it currently doesn't have any comments about items nor the location from where the item drops.
  3. WoWDigger also has a list of who is wearing the item... I don't know how this information is beneficial (but that's a personal opinion)
Edit (2/24/09): Adding info about using type="preload"
This topic was moved from forum Instructions to forum Archive by Mottie - WowDigger no longer exists.
