[Release] bbTips 1.0.3

Postby Sajaki » 26 Dec 2012, 21:02

Dear all,

I'm glad to announce bbTips 1.0.2 ;)

This release has a number of fixes and new features, as follows :

Changelog for 1.0.3 :
  • [SUPPORT] The documentation is now included as a pdf file.
  • [CHG] wowhead local.js power.js updated for local usage.
  • [FIX] achievement bbcode fixed, wowhead now uses htmlentities
  • [FIX] the Spell bbcode now support Glyphs, Recipes and Guild-perks
  • [FIX] SimplephpDom 1.5 updated to revision 202 of 10/10/2012. this class is used to parse html.
  • [FIX] css changes : quests, spells now appear in #FAB008 and in Verdana, to align it closer to the wowhead look.

Description :

bbTips is a WowHead bbCode Tooltips mod (Item, Craft, Spell, Quest, Achievements, npc, wowchar, itemset, item icon, item dkp), and bbDKP compatible.

How does it work ? New bbcodes are installed with the mod (umil) installer so you don't have to.
then file includes/functions_content.php is modded to insert a custom bbcode parser. the code then calls an xml-rpc service operated by, parses the received html with simplehtmldom and inserts a formatted string. a wowhead javascript is taking care of the tooltip part. You can select remote javascript or locally hosted javascript in ACP, and choose english, german, french, Spanish. (Russian was not tested).


Version: : [REL] 1.0.3

Requirements: :

  • phpBB 3.0.11
  • bbDKP, so your DKP listings are autolinked to wowhead (OPTIONAL. it also works without)
