Eve Killboard Plugin

Description

Do you play Eve Online? Do you or your Corporation have a WordPress blog? Do you have a killboard? Do you want to brag about your kills? If so, than this is the plugin for you!

It’s a WordPress Widget which can pull kills from an installation of the EDK Killboard, or pull them from an eve-kill.net XML feed.

For the feed, you’ll need to have your kills present in eve-kill.net. For the EDK access, you’ll need connection details for your EDK killboard database
