The GPHelper add-on for World of Warcraft (Control Panel -> WoW Integration) has been updated to the latest WoW patch.

The Raid Point Standings widget, when in the center pane on one of your pages, will now display a list of characters belonging to each member. Also, if they have set a forum handle, it will display that instead of their account name.

Finally, there was an issue with more than one RSS feed on a page. This has been fixed.

Users are now able to manage their tradeskill information directly from within the Members - Trade skills widget, no longer needing to hunt anything down in their Characters/Settings. The link appears at the top.

There is now a "FFXIV YellowGremlin Search" widget available for Final Fantasy XIV guilds/linkshells. It's provided by the folks over at

Also thanks to them, the WYSIWYG editor now supports the adding of game-related tooltips to posts -- or any other content -- by clicking on the "FFXIV YG" button along the bottom. You can search for and insert items, recipes, skills, NPCs, quests, and guildleves.

System updates (like this one) are now showing up in web-based mail, as well. By default, most items will only show for those who have any administrative rights in the guild, so we don't be spamming your members with info that isn't relevant to them.

This was done to improve communications between us and guild admins, making it easier for you to keep notified on updates to the service.

A new widget is available for Warhammer guilds called "Warhammer Server Status." It lists the Warhammer game servers and shows whether they're offline or online.

Also, shouts will now display forum handles in place of user account names, where available.
