===CP, GP, and WoW===

This is a quick guide on how to gather data in WoW<br>
 +
There is more detailed info on the use of WoWRoster-Profiler and WoWRoster-GuildProfiler to gather data in WoW on the [[Roster:Updating|Updating Character and Guild Data to Roster]] page.
 +
* Install the necessary Addons (WoWRoster-Profiler & WoWRoster-GuildProfiler)
 +
* Start WoW, log into your account, and check whether the above AddOns were correctly installed (Addons Button in the character select screen)
 +
* Log in into a character for your guild, this can be any character but it is preferred that the character can read all the guild data, such as notes, ranks, guild info, guild motd, etc...
 +
* Open the Guild window, near the top left, there should be a Save button. If you press this, you will get a message in the chat window of when the guild was created and how many members are in the guild.
 +
* Open the character window. There is also a save button here near the top left corner. Clicking this button also displays a message in the chat window about what has been and has not been scanned.
 +
* Log out, or exit WoW
 +
 +
 +
 +
===Upload To Roster===

* In the Roster menu, click the Update Profile button
 +
* Click the browse button next to wowroster.lua, browse for your wowroster.lua data file

 +
** This file '''IS NOT''' at (*WoWDir*/WTF/Account/*''ACCOUNTNAME''*/*''REALMNAME''*/*''CHARNAME''*/wowroster.lua)
 +
*** There should be no file here
 +
** This file '''IS NOT''' at (*WoWDir*/Interface/AddOns/wowroster/wowroster.lua)
 +
*** This is the addon code, not the data
 +
* Enter Roster Admin password in the "WoWRoster-GuildProfiler User Only" box, next to "Roster Update Password"
 +
* Click on the Upload button
 +
* A window should come up afer a while (it depends on how big your CP.lua file is)
 +
* This window give an overview of members added, updated, and removed. It also gives an update summary of each character as well.
 +
 +
 +
