Fingers of Fury!

If this has been addressed, please point me to the topic, or if this is in the wrong forum feel free to move it to the correct one.

I'd like to add a customizable indicator to my WoW guild site that allows members to see easily if the game server is up or not, rather than navigating to WoW's Realm Status page.  I'm not even sure if this is even possible but I just like the idea of a "One-stop-shop" as it were for the site as it relates to the game.

Hi Rhynth!

Well you have ummm four options:
  1. WoW Realm Status image (therefore it's not customizable)
  2. RPG Outfitter script (customizable text and background image, more info here)
  3. XML/XSL WoW server status - This only works for subscribed sites, but highly customizable.
  4. WoW Server Status - A script I wrote, but it's on a free hosting site that may not be 100% reliable but is the most customizable of all of these.
