Ok now that I got this puppy working, I think its awesome!

However, is there  a way to extract other information from the game to the .lua, such as the Last Time the character was online? I figured if its available in game, it may be able to be saved to the .lua like the notes are?

Also - is it possible to set a default sort order? Like the sort order always sorts By-Class, but it would be way cool to have it default to sorting by Rank instead, so leader and officer always appear at top instead of those pesky Druids!

how did you get this to work?

I have installed the addon to my "world of warcraft/interface/addons" directory and ran the game...it said it updated the info but the file doesn't exist in my "wtf/[account name]/saved variables" folder

if i can just get it to save to that folder it should work...any suggestions?

You need to logout and it will save there. My showed up after I logged out the first time.

Yeah the way WoW works is it dumps all saved variables from all add-ons only after you log out.

It seems to overright info inself, It isn't showing the offline players (do I have to set guild to show offline).  It loses info on those not online!

Is the trouble I need to show offline members to not lose members info and get all members?

Thanks.

You need to show offline members and make sure it recognizes the characters (will show # of members in text chat). If it does NOT do this, force it with /gpupdate

Here's something I'm wondering, on the far right of the roster list there is a section for DKP.  My guild hasnt implemented DKP but will be doing so in the future.  So my question is... where does the guildportal roster mod get it's information to tally the DKP?  Will I need a DKP mod? If so is there a specific one that I need to use?  Also, will guild mods for WoW cuase any conficts that anyone knows of for the auto roster?

We actually took it a step further and use the actual rpgo setup.   You imbedd just the roster, and then won't have to manually upload it to guild portal.  The uni-uploader uploads automatically. 

as for the the 'extra' information that the players have, it will only show it for those who have the rpgo addon..  look here.- > Pif Roster   My co-gm introduced us to it, and we love it.  Just hope more guildies will begin to use it.  My favorite is being able to see everyone's quests!
