Hello! I need some help with the Game Quest Widget. I would like to learn how to Customize it for FFXI. It's pretty generic and the name of categories could be more organized. Also, is there a way, without clicking the actual quest to see if you have completed it? For example: They have Quests in Bastok for a category. It should say: Bastok, click, Missions or Quests (listed) then click one of those and then the others can be listed. If you have completed all the Bastok Nation Missions, it could say 9/10 completed without going all the way into each one.   Sorry about this post.. I hope you understand what Im saying.

This is a GREAT widget for FFXI! I would just like to help make it easier to use.

Hi Donikkaa!

You're talking like this game quest widget already exists? If so, do you have a link to it?

If it doesn't exist, then I can say, just off the top of my head, that in order to keep it updated, you'll need to do a lot of manual updating as GuildPortal doesn't have a way for us to store and maintain our own database online. Sadly, I don't know enough about php, mySQL or other server side languages to set up a database on another site. But, if something already exists, I'm sure I could figure out how to install it and then help you do something similar.

Hi Mottie!
Please look at my site..  connection.guildportal.com    The quest widget was an option when I was building the site. It already had pre loaded subjects... you will see them when you pull up the Resourse page.
Thanks!

Hi Donikkaa!

Oh, the built in widget! Umm, I've never really messed around with that widget before but from looking at the one on your site it seems that the character completion link is the only way to see who has completed the quest.

I could add an indicator on that same page that shows if you have completed or not completed a quest without clicking on the "character completion" link. But if you want it on the main quest page or the quest category page it'll have to access each page and would cause a lot of lag.

I think the best solution would be to submit a feature request to get this added to the main and category page, but maybe just your own status? I'll also submit a feature request to see if I could get it as a feed, that way I could just grab all of the information directly.

Hi I am looking at using this same widget, but I cannot seem to find a way to edit the "Game Quest Category" section. My only option is "Misc. Quests" and I don't seem to have an option to expand that. Any idea as to what I am doing wrong?

Hi Eberak!

I looked and it doesn't appear to have a method to add categories, as far as I can tell. Please submit a support ticket with GuildPortal.
