Using WOWROSTER as a RAIDROSTER

Postby GuaRRand » Wed Oct 11, 2006 6:40 pm

I just started a Raiding community and i want to use wowroster as a base for the raidinmember info, just like it does now for my guild.

I was thinking about setting up a second roster installation in a subdiretcory or something, but i soon realised that it probably wont work becuase wowroster looks at your GUILDinfo, and since my raidingcommunity will be made up of alot of members from different guilds, this wouldnt work.

But i was thinkgin (again) that it might be possible to "filter" people according to a note in user/officer notes (like you do with the guildaddon).
SO i would put "Member of raiding community" in the usernotes of a player and that would tag it so that member will also be uploaded...??

So in short:
Is there a way that i can use wowroster as a RAIDroster instead of a guildroster?.
Is there maybe an addon i issed? :P

Using WOWROSTER as a RAIDROSTER

Interesting idea. There are a few ways you can go with this, but in all factors, you will need a public roster to do it. Out of curiousity, what kind of functionality would you be looking for? This could probably be wrapped up into an Addon for a public roster. You might not want to rely on using player/officer notes as an indicator, as how do you handle players that are guildless and/or have a GM that doesn't upload the Guild Roster.

The best way (IMO) would be to write the Addon to include some sort of "Raid Party Manager" in which you manage the "Raid Roster" through the web interface. This would also of course require some database work to map a player to a raid party name.

Those are just some ideas :) . If you have trouble with the 3rd party "Public Roster" that is available here, let me know and I can get you a copy of my own public roster that I've been working on (though I can't support it due to time constraints, so that is one reason I don't make it publically available).

Using WOWROSTER as a RAIDROSTER

Postby GuaRRand » Wed Oct 11, 2006 9:19 pm

the functionality i am looking for is rather basic.
Get an overview of the raid community members and their character sheets (the same as in the usual guildroster)
As secundary functionality it would be awsome if it "somehow" als showed their DKP.
I am using EQDKP atm, so maybe it could hook into that?

thnx for thinking with me on this guys/gals :)

Using WOWROSTER as a RAIDROSTER

Postby GuaRRand » Thu Oct 12, 2006 6:54 pm

K, uploaded the public roster to a different directory...
But that was as far as i got.

When i tried to install it, it said that roster was already installed.
I take it that it somehow sees the other roster SQL tables or something...
Anyway, it said to remove install directory etc.. but when i do that, i get a bunch of errors.
Not strange imho..

Anyway, how do i get it installed when another roster is already installed (but in a different directory)

Also what i dont get is... how does it populate the roster?
GUILDroster looks at ... well... your guildroster :)
How does teh public roster know which people to populate the roster with???

And can i use the same characterprofile.lua as i use for my normal guildroster?
If not, i dont see how i am gonna be able to use it...

Help? :)

The first part is right, different directory, the second part is to put it into a separate database. (table prefix would work too, but diff database is cleaner)
The sql create script is erroring because it cant make another set of tables with the same names in the same database.
Treat the installation as if it was on a different server and you'll be fine.

After that, just upload your characterprofiler.lua twice, once to your guild roster and again to the public roster. If you use UniUploader then you wont even think of it anymore once the second URL is set.

Also note, that with a fresh install of *any* roster (not an upgrade), if there is a conf.php file in the base directory, roster will think it's installed. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the Public roster may require an alteration to the DB structure, so it's would be wise to install it to a different roster_prefix (or a different DB as stated above)

Yeah ok.. i got it installed ok now.
But i still have a problem with the guilduploading.

let me explain my situation better...

1. my character is already in a guild and is uploaded to my first roster.
2. the raiding community is using the second roster
3. my character is ALSO a member of this raiding community.
how will the characterprofile.lua handle this?
how does it see that i am in this raiding community also?
Doesnt it work with the guildprofile addon?
so, anyone who uploads is in the raiding community?

Using WOWROSTER as a RAIDROSTER

Any progress in getting this to work as raidroster? :)
I hate to ask my members to upload all their stuff themselves each time...and to delete all their other charaters that have nothing to do with the Raiding community
