Hi,

While searching for a way to integrate all the different systems we use on our website, I've created a "Forum" addon for WoWRoster.

It simply adds a "Forum" button in the WoWRoster Addon menu that redirects you to the main page of your forum.

In the conf.php file you can enter the path to your forum, this path may be relative or absolute. The addon could redirect you to any page on the Internet, but as it was my intention to redirect to our forum, the addon is called "Forum" not "Redirector". :P

To see it at work, try our roster page.

I may be making a real addon out of this with last posts and top poster type of views, but it will depend on demand on the forum, both here and on my guildsite.

EDIT: Updated the link to the demo page

Nice handy thing indeed :thumright:

Altought,
From menu.php wrote:$config['menu_index_file'][0][1] = $wordings[$roster_conf['roster_lang']]['forum']; //menu link text

isn't defined no-where in a French Roster (is it in usUS ?) - so an empty button will show up (but it works).
I just parched it up like :
$config['menu_index_file'][0][1] = 'Go Home'; //menu link text
And all was ok.

Thanks !!

Hi,

If you got your roster configured for french, you only need to add the appropriate line in the localization.php file:
Code: Select all
$wordings['frFR']['forum'] = 'Forum';


Hope it helps,

Teta

nice. thanks. I may just add this if I can't figure out how to get the header to the top of the page.

BTW what addon are you using to get the Priest Class Leader on the profiles?

If you mean "<class> Class Leader" on the forum, that's just using the Ranks section of the forum. Just create some special ranks and add them to the user. I do it manually because it is not changing a lot.

Hi,

Thanks for this Addon.

How would I change the code to be able to open the link in a new web page/tab. For example using target="_blank"

Many thanks

André

I'll see if I can make this a configurable option.
