Warcraft News

Description

Warcraft News provides a widget to display guild or character news from the new battle.net armory. You can add as many widgets as you want, e.g. one guild and three char news widgeds. It also can optionally include the wowhead javascript and replace the blizzard item links with links to wowhead with nice tooltips.

As a next step I plan to add a widget to show your current guild level and the newest guild perk.

This addon (currently) does not show a guild roster. There are other plugins around for that.

Restrictions

  • If you set the cache time to small, the armory might block you and the plugin won’t work anymore. This is a Blizzard restriction I cannot circumvent.
  • My guild uses a Umlaut in its name and I hope the plugin works well with all special chars around. If you have any problems, please send me a link to your guilds armory page and I try to work it out.

Screenshots

  • The news of my guild on the guild blog.
  • News about my character Baraan on a standard wordpress installation.

FAQ

How can I change how the addon looks?

ATM you’ll need to edit your blogs stylesheet to change the look of the widgets. A good starting point might be the css class li.widget_warcraft_news_guild ul, but you might want to be more specific to your theme.
In the future I might include some color themes to chose from.
