Updates from Aaron Lewis, GuildPortal Code Monkey

Version 2.01 of the WoW GPHelper add-on is now available for download at http://www.guildportal.com/GPHelper. Aside from bringing up the UI version info up to date with the newest release of WoW, some bugs causing problems with bank item imports and raid resetting upon zone-in of a raid instance (say, after death), have also been addressed in this release.

We recommend you go with a clean set of data going in, so you will want to delete the [wow install folder]\WTF\Account\[account name]\SavedVariables\GPHelper.lua file (there might be two listed if WoW saved a backup copy).

Additional changes this week were made in response to support tickets.

  • New: GuildPortal is now able to import roster data for Rift using the in-game /dumpguild command. Further intructions are in the Control Panel, under Rift Integration.
  • New: Attendance for raids in Rift may now be easily updated using the in-game /dumpraid command. Click Event Follow-up while viewing an event on your calendar for more details.
  • New: A new widget, called "Rift Guild Perks" has been added. Track and display the perks your guild has earned!

Hello all! It's update time again, and this week we've got some fixes and an enhancement or two:
  • Fixed: In event follow-up > attendance, updating was only happening if you filled out the form in a specific order (ie, checking the box indicating the member attended before entering the amount of DKP awarded for attending).
  • New: Event admins may now update attendance directly from events. As was the case when setting attendance in follow-up, allied events put the responsibility for tracking attendance and awarding DKP on each guild the event is shared out, allowing for each guild in the alliance to have their own DKP point structure.
  • New: The process that checks for new one-on-one chat requests now updates more frequently.
  • Fixed: Clicking Return to Preview while in drag-and-drop page edit mode wasn't always clearing out the cache, and refreshing the page right away would not always reflect the changes made.

Many changes this week!
  • New: Rift tooltips for items, abilities, and just about everything are now live and fully integrated into the WYSIWYG editor! Many thanks to ZAM for providing this functionality!
  • New: System-wide achievements are now live. These are apart from the custom guild achievement system, and can be viewed by clicking any site member's link.
  • Fixed: Preference/setting changes were not always appearing to update immediately.
  • New: The bank admin UI (specifically in the areas of managing items and item requests) has been cleaned up.
  • Fixed: When an item request was approved for an item with a quantity greater than one, the system was not multiplying the number of DKP to deduct by the number of items in the stack.
  • New: The Rift Server Status widget now has a background image, which can be set to the Guardian or Defiant logo by clicking Edit under the widget.
  • New: A new widget called Rift Search has gone live, and integrates directly with ZAM for all your Rift-searching needs. There are three display modes for it, and you can choose the one you prefer by clicking Edit under the widget. By default, this will appear on all new Rift sites.
  • Fixed: The image selector used throughout the Control Panel was not opening the window to select images that were available in guild storage.

Sub-forum icons now display their read/unread status, just like regular forums.

The majority of the changes this week were made in response to support tickets. Some time was also spent on streamlining our support tools.
