Show a roster of your World of Warcraft guild’s members on any page.
I was building a website for a World of Warcraft guild on the WordPress platform. I needed to display a roster of all the guild’s members. Rather than have the guild leader manually enter new members in a unique database, I decided to create a plugin to handle the display of a roster automatically using WoW Armory data.
WoW Guild Retrieve asks for a realm name and guild name. Because it’s a shortcode, you can have multiple guild lists even on the same page!
To use the plugin in any page or post, just include the following text in that page:
[wgr guildname="" realmname=""]
Between the quotes, add the appropriate names, like so:
[wgr guildname="My Guild Name" realmname="My Realm Name"]
It defaults to US servers. For EU servers, just add this:
[wgr guildname="My Guild Name" realmname="My Realm Name" region="eu"]
If you’d like to change the sorting, just use the following options:
Also, there is this option:
The last option:
An example of a shortcode that uses all of the options is here:
[wgr guildname="My Guild" realmname="My Realm" region="eu" sorttype="1" sortorder="desc" restrict="true" tablesize="25"]
Also, you can change the names of the ranks displayed. This is done in the Options page, which also will explain the process. The Options page can be found under your Settings tab in WordPress.
At this time, custom names are universal, so if you have multiple guild rosters on one website they will all have the same rank names.
Note: if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 1.3.0, you will need to deactivate and then reactivate the plugin.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop by the plugin website here:
