|Description:||WoWLinks is a plugin that adds two new bbcodes that will create either an item link with a tooltip or insert a stat block for World of Warcraft items on your site or in forum posts.
The information for the Items is pulled from thottbot.
I created this plugin since I was unhappy with the only other solution out there for doing this in E107 (ItemStats http://itemstats.free.fr/news.php).
The problem with item stats is it requires you to modify core E107 files in order for it to work and does not make it easy for a site admin to upgrade E107 and keep the functionality intact.
The idea and much of the code for this plugin was taken from ItemStats, I just modified it heavily to make it behave like a good little plugin.
What’s different from ItemStats?
The good things:
WoWLinks is a pure E107 plugin, you do not need to modify any files for it to work and it is easy to install uninstall.
The not so good:
WoWLinks does not cache the item data, it will pull the information from thottbot every time a link is put in.
There is no support for other data sites (allakhazam, wowhead, etc.)
Right now the Item tooltips are purely done with css. A really long tooltip may flow off the bottom of the screen.
WoWLinks currently only supports usEN item names.
