WoW Roster Module?

Postby Dgurion » Wed Aug 09, 2006 3:49 am

Is there any way to make the WoW Roster a module for Joomla? Because using the "wrapper" link method is somewhat ugly and it doesnt look consistent between Firefox and Internet Explorer.. ..

Does anyone know how to make a module of it, or at least can provide some link on how to make modules for Joomla?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Wow Roster as a complete module?

That would have to be made a component then.. instead of a module.. and it would be nearly impossible.. or.. impossible in the way that the dev team would need to maintain two versions.. (and when other users saw this.. they'd want it aswell for their cms... so it would be XX versions eventually)

Wrapping, and making it look good in joomla is two different things..

Check my site out..

Joomla wrapped in IE:

Joomla wrapped in FF:

What i've done.. is to take out the bits and pieces we need..(see pic below) instead of just wrapping the entire roster into the site..


This works great for us.. and there's no visible change from IE to FF..

Common problems could be..

Not changing the default options on a wrapped link, as in not changing the size of the page etc..
try fiddling with the settings like shown below

CSS leaks from roster into joomla's templates..
This can be caused by a number of things.. but usually.. you've chosen a poorly written joomla template.. :)
Try with another.. or write your own template! :-O

I hope it helps a bit..

Also, i guess you've looked through the joomla guide i've written (can be found in this forum)

Yeah, I assumed it would be a huge undertaking... I thought for some reason it could be done easily.. But wrapping isnt too horrible, I have done the same thing by taking out things I dont need and making it fit, It doesnt look too bad... But it would be nice if it was a bit more integrated.. .... Ive read your integration guide (awesome work btw) and that did help me out quite a bit.. I guess wrapping will have to do... =D
