First off I would like to say thanks to guild portal for this awesome sight. Our guild has been using this service for almost 2 years now, but just recently subscribed and started trying to use it to the max. I am quite ignorant when it comes to HTML and what not, but would really like to improve the design of our page. Looking over Motties help site, we see a few things we would like to incorporate, but Im clueless, and when I try to cut and paste and edit the given scripts nothing seems to work right. In addition, I cant see to get the guild chat or IM service to function properly.

We are interested in adding the 3d armory for our ranking officers, recent drops, guild progression, and maybe somehow sync the in-game WoW calendar to the sites calendar (if possible). I saw the scripts provided on Motties wonderful site, but Im not really sure exactly what I am inserting and where.

Here is a link to our site.

Can anyone help me?

Hi Ma'huatyl!

I'm glad you are finding my help site useful... but what exactly are you getting stuck on? I have tried to make all the instructions on my help site as clear as possible, but sometimes I get lazy and may not have explained everything in detail. So, if you could tell me where you are having problems it would help me improve my site and in turn help others as well

Just a few notes though:
  • The 3d arnory and guild progression posts should works "out of the box" for you, just add a free form text/HTML type widget and paste the code in them while in <> HTML mode (or maybe Raw/Script mode if you have to). The only other thing I can think of that might not appear to work would be the tooltips, so make sure you add the tooltips from the help site too.
  • Don't use the recent loot script on my help site... Guild Portal has implemented a new built in one that works with the GuildHelper addon.
  • Syncing the in game calendar with the Guild Portal calendar isn't possible (as far as I know) at this time. I don't think that functionality has been added to the helper addon yet.
