Becoming Adept!

I'm about to break my head over my keyboard after trying to get this to work for hours, so I really hope someone might be able to help me.

I'm not a coder, and I'm just trying to follow the instructions here:

When I go to "Custom HTML & Script" > "Boxes, Left Side" as it says I should and try to copy & paste the text, I cannot save it because it tells me "Required Elements:$block[title], $block[content]"

What exactly am I doing wrong?

Hi Ashbringah!

It appears you are trying to add the code in the wrong place. The Boxes, Left Side is for the Content Box/Widget overall styling. If you want to add a Progression Box, you'll need to add a "Free Form Text/HTML" type widget, then add the code to that specific widget.

Also, I've updated the Icecrown Citadel progression box on my Help site, I just haven't gotten around to updating it on the admin site yet.

Here is how it is done step-by-step:
  • If you haven't already done so, you'll need to add the tooltip script I made to work with the progression box. Get the code here, then add it to your Footer Area (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Footer Area).

  • Now go to the Control Panel > Pages & Content > Pick a page under "Page Contents" for your progression box
  • In the right panel you'll see 3 tabs, click the far right one "Add Widget"
  • Enter

    Title: Progression (or whatever you want)
    Type of Widget: Free Form Text/HTML
    Location on Page: Left

  • Click [Add thie Widget]
  • Now you should be back on the Widgets/Content tab. Move your Progression widget (drag and drop) to the desired location.
  • Now click the "Edit" button inside the widget
  • A new window will open with an editor. Click the <> HTML button at the bottom
  • Copy the code (Ctrl-C) from the progression box post then paste it into the editor (Ctrl-V)
  • Click the [Save] button
  • Now go to your site page where you just added this progression box and reload that page.
  • Make sure everything is working. Click the expansion buttons, check that the tooltips work when hovering over the instance name.
  • Once you know it's working, go back to the editor and make any changes to the instance/boss status - the editor should still be in <> HTML mode

Words cannot express enough how much I am grateful for your help, mate!
That did the trick, and it seems to be working now.
I still have alot more to figure out and get working, but this is  huge help!

Thanks again!
