Wowhead tooltips
« on: 02, April, 2011, 20:05:03 »
Just installed a mod for the forums that will allow you to link items on wowhead in your posts.

Just use:

Code: [Select]
[wow]Item name[/wow] or [wow]Item id[/wow]
Examples:

Code: [Select]
[wow]Weeds[/wow]Will give:
[wow]Weeds[/wow]

And:

Code: [Select]
[wow]100[/wow]Will give:
[wow]100[/wow]


As you can see, the background color is currently a bit messed up. I'll see if this can be fixed soonish.
There we go, all better.

I gave Gyrm a new signature. Let's see if he notices.

Apparently, regular links to Wowhead pages will automatically show tooltips as well.

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.wowhead.com/item=56550]Dragonscale Leg Armor[/url]
becomes

Dragonscale Leg Armor

Note that the link is unchanged; the mod just adds a mouseover tooltip.

Apparently this sometimes slows down loading times here quite a bit. At least it does for Firefox users when wowhead is slow to respond. I should look into just placing the required scripts locally and see if we can get a crontab script to update them regularly, should there be an actual need for updating them.

Both Wowhead and the forum have been very slow lately, yes.

It mostly seems to get stuck on trying to read stuff from wowhead.com, tho'. So I think the problem is there and not here.
