WoW Armory Character

Pulls character information from the WoW community API and displays it.

The plugin is displaying old information. How do I update it?

The plugin will cache the characters it retrieves from the community API for 12 hours. This ensures that your website will make no more then 2 requests per character in any 24 hour period. In order to force your character display to update you are able to clear the cache.

  1. Navigate to the Armory Character section within the Settings area of your wordpress admin area.
  2. Tick the checkbox next to the character you wish to refresh and click the Clear selected cache items button.

When you next look at your character fresh information will be pulled from the community API. It may be that the community API is returning old information, in this case you will need to wait until your armory page is updated.

How do I change the styling of the character display

There are two ways you can do this. You can use a pure CSS based approach or alter the html output using either of the two display filters that have been made available.

To use the filters please create the necessary function (perhaps in your template.php file) and alter the html as you see fit. You can either alter the html after it has been created or you can override the template that produces the output.

The CSS can be overridden by using the global setting 'Add plugin css to the page'. Unticking this box will allow you to provide your own CSS as part of your theme. NOTE This option is now deprecated. It will be replaced in a future release by the filter documented in the installation tab. For simple edits I suggest you add the necessary tweaks to your themes CSS and keep the basic styling the plugin provides.
