Has anyone used this - GuildPortal Helper Add-On ?

Does it work as advertised?
Any issues with it? Confusion?
Thanks.

Yup, I just used it today.  It works for the Roster pretty well.  (Note that after using the command, you have to log out, otherwise the file doesn't get created.  This is pretty goofy in my opinion.) 

What interests me is that it indicates that it can also handle the bank and calendar data.  But there doesn't seem to be any information about how to do this yet.

In game, type "/gph help" and it will respond with this:

[GuildPortal Helper] GPH Commands:
/gph - show or hide player list
/gph clearloot - Clears the loot list
/gph roster - Updates roster data, for upload to site
/gph calendar - Updates calendar data, for upload to site
/gph clearroster - Clears the roster data
/gph clearbank - Clears the guild bank info
/gph update - Updates the player list

So...how can we get this thing to update our website calendars and banks?  Neither the calendar nor the bank has the ability to import data that I can find.  Adding the calendar entries or bank items one by one is nothing short of retarded, I must say.

I too just used it for the first time.

One problem I noticed:
It forces the Guild List (in game) to always show ALL guild members, including OFFLINE ones. Even if you check/uncheck "Show Offline Members", the entire list is always there.
Just a visual hassle.

OK, so it's not just me.  It did that to me too.  Kind of annoying, isn't it.

Is this the only means by which we can update rosters now?

Seems to be so.  Reading about the change, it seems that Blizzard told them to stop using the Armory.  So the old Armory Roster won't work anymore, leaving this GPH Roster as the only method.

I've been messing around with this addon, and I wanted to share a few things that need to be addressed.
  1. When you save the Roster info, it doesn't keep the guild name with the data. So you could potentially save a guild roster from an alt in a different guild to your site. I don't think the two or more guild rosters will mix, but it could be replaced. This is also true of the bank items.

  2. The Loot portion of the addon has an "ignore" section. Currently it is only set to ignore Large Prismatic Shards, Badge of Justice and Void Crystal. I added a few more (in blue). To modify this, look in the addon directory for "GPHelper.lua" and open it with a basic text editor. This section starts about 80 lines down.

    -- ==========================================================================
    -- ITEMS to Ignore
    -- These items will not be saved as loot
    -- Copy and paste last line to add more
    -- be sure to include trailing comma
    -- ==========================================================================
    GPH_Ignore = {
      "Large Prismatic Shard",
      "Badge of Justice",
      "Void Crystal",
      "Emblem of Heroism",
      "Emblem of Valor",
      "Small Dream Shard",
      "Dream Shard",
      "Abyss Crystal",

    }

I have yet to get it to work. If i run it, when I log on, it locks me up. I'm guessing that it's a compatability issue with another addon, so here's a list of what I'm running as well:

WonderBooze (disabled until I get more scotch)

I hate to resolve to the process of elimination, so I thought I would consult with you all first to see if anyone has had compatibility issues with any of these addons and GPHelper. I really want to get this active for our site.
Thanks in advance for any help!

I do not have any lockup problems with the GPH addon.  I use the following from your list:

!Swatter
AtlasLoot
Auc-Advanced
BonusScanner
DBM (Core + all modules)
Enchantrix
Enchantrix-Barker
GPHelper
Omen
QuestHelper (disabled on the character that I use GPHelper on)
Recount
Titan
TitanAmmo
TitanBag
TitanClock
TitanCoords
TitanCritLine
TitanGoldTracker
TitanGuild
TitanHealBot
TitanItemBonuses
TitanLootType
TitanMail
TitanPerformance
TitanRegen
TitanRepair
TitanVolume
TitanXP

I do not use the following from your list:

AckisRecipeList
AtlasLootFu
Bagnon
Bagnon_Forever
Bagnon_Options
Bagnon_Tooltips
BeanCounter
Bejeweled
Cartographer
Cartographer_Battlegrounds
Cartographer_Coordinates
Cartographer_Foglight
Cartographer_GroupColors
Cartographer_GuildPositions
Cartographer_InstanceLoot
Cartographer_InstanceMaps
Cartographer_InstanceNotes
Cartographer_LookNFeel
Cartographer_Notes
Cartographer_POI
Cartographer_Professions
Cartographer_Waypoints
Cartographer_ZoneInfo
CharacterProfiler
CrapAway
Cutup
Dominos
droodfocus
EnhTooltip
FishingBuddy
GEM3_Core
GEM3UI
GridLib
GuildCraft
GuildCraft_Browser
HealBot
Informant
RecipeBook
RoguePowerBars
SharedMedia
Stubby
WonderBooze

Not sure this will help at all though.  The last time I had a problem like the one you describe, I had to use the process of elimination and it took hours.  I eventually found that an addon that was out of date was the problem.  (I was forcing it to be run because the author stopped working on it and I really needed it.  This turned out to be a bad idea.)
