That's right folks! We are now powered by Wowhead! After spending a few hours pulling out my hair because each time I would add the code it wouldn't work (cough phpftpsucks) I finally got it to work! I will have a post up in the General Section due to how often that is used for items and links explaining how to make the link. However here is an example!

[Amani Punisher]

Code:
[url=http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33283][Amani Punisher][/url]


You will need to get the item off wowhead and then give the name to it. Then ta da! All done!

I hope you all will enjoy this feature, especially since we are done moving we have alot of stuff to fix up on the site!

Just a quick note to the forum admin and/or Foofy.

Code:
<script src="http://www.wowhead.com/widgets/power.js"></script>


I highly suggest you download the .js file from wowhead and host it on your site rather than having each user pull it down from wowhead.com when the page loads in their browser.

I have been running my guild's website and forum forever, and we had numerous occasions where wowhead.com would be down or slow and because my users are pulling the .js from wowhead, their browser would stall or quit entirely before loading any of my site's content.

The down-side to this is that if wowhead changes anything, it might break and you need to refresh the .js file on your server. I've been running like this for at least six months now and haven't had any problems.

Oh, and mmo-champion now has their own item database and a .js file available so you can do the same thing with their items.

Some web hosts might allow you to create a script/task/whatever to automatically pull the latest power.js from wowhead on a given interval. That could potential be the "best of both worlds" situation if the web host offers that capability.

The problem with that is, it would require one of us to know what you are talking about..and if it will be warranted in the "future" or not of this site >_>
