Hi,

I have been all over the site trying to get something set up so that our guild can track L&L's, HQ's, and such as people get them done, and as they need help so as to better schedual raids and other group events.

What I would like is much like the Keys & Flag setting they have for the roster. but I dont seem to have the ability to alter what is available, and it is an incomplete list [only abot 20 of the over 30 HQ's].
Further I
 would like to be able to click in the HQ name and have a drop down or some thing with all the steps so that our members could look and see who was working on an HQ and what step they were on.

Is there features like this and I am missing them or does anyone already have something like this implimented that I could copy? I hate to have to recreate the wheel as it were.

Thanks
DragonRyder <><

Fingers of Fury!

Well DragonRyder, I have to thank you, I am here today searching for the same thing.
Even a List of names, the Heroic Keys across the top and a symbol in there if you have it would satisfy me. The key thing we have now is useless.... and I can't edit it for them, so if they are LAZY .... like many are, it is not up to date anyway.....
frustrating!

As it stands now "Keys and Flags" appears to be basically useless for WoW Guilds.  Keys are listed several time (or not at all) for characters (i.e. Karazhan Key and Master Key or Scholomance Key and Skeleton Key) and they are only editable by the individual account holder.

Sadly, unless the GP staff fixes this "feature" to make it more usable, you need another way to display the keying information.

I think your three best options would be
  1. Create a freeform HTML content piece and make your own table to track it.
  2. Use the XML transform content to diddle the information provided by WoWArmory
  3. Script it somewhere else and link it to your GP site.

Getting Started!

I'm trying to do something similar, but I'm having trouble connecting the outside data with the current character reading the page.   How do I read the current viewer into a script to be able to use it?
