vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 92
Released: 02 Feb 2008 Last Update: 25 Nov 2008 Downloads: 1055
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations External Content Is in Beta Stage  

This is a continuation of the project, . I have made several modifications to the original authors code and several have asked for my modifications.

Because of this and the original authors lack of updating the original modification, I have decided to upload this package for all to use.

All credit goes to the original author(s) of the utility as i have only cleaned up the code and packaged it for easy usage.

This is very beta at this time. I have added the product now to force myself to update and maintain the plugin and to share it with the rest of my fellow World of Warcraft webmasters

  1. Uninstall your existing WoW Char Code installation. I have changed the product ID itself and it may not update everything correctly.
  2. Remove the clientscript/ajax_tooltip and clientscript/phparmory folders if they exist
  3. Upload the contents of the "Upload" Folder to the ROOT directory of your forums (for example, if you have your forums installed in /home/mydir/public_html/forums , you would unzip into that folder.)
  4. Import the product/product-WoWCharBBCode-?.??.xml file

  • 0.4.9b
    • Added basic Death Knight support
    • Fixed problem with characters with no professions (common with Death Knights)
  • 0.4.9a
    • Fixed a minor issue with realms in spaces in the name
  • 0.4.9
    • Added wysiwyg support
  • 0.4.8a
    • Fixed a php parse error in functions_wowcharcode.php. you do not need to download the entire zip file, just replace your existing functions_wowcharcode.php file with the attached .php file
  • 0.4.8
  • 0.4.7a
    • Removed some left over debugging statements and info in the product and php file.
  • 0.4.7
    • Changed the backend armory code.
    • Updated caching to not cache Armory results that end up as errors
    • Added character class, race and professions as vbphrases.
    • Added KR and TW Armory locales. (, etc)
    • Some minor fixes.
  • 0.4.4
    • Added Icon caching to help with slow armory. Images are cached by default in the armory folder. chmod this folder to 777 and icons will be automaticly cached to this folder.
    • You can now use the variable $wowchar_code in the postbit (or postbit_legacy) to display the character tooltip in a post.
  • 0.4.3 Fixed issue with rebuilding post cache.
  • 0.4.2 Added option to show/hide realm if a default realm is set.
  • 0.4.1 Fixed an issue if the character doesnt have armory data, Only change is in functions_wowcharcode.php file.
  • 0.4
    • All Character stat text are now phrases. you will find a new Phrase Type in the Phrase Manager ( WoW BBCode Phrases )
    • Added default realm option so one does not need to use the [char=server] option when specifying characters on own realm.
    • Customized the stat display per class and on some specs (such as feral v.s. resto druids). see an example at
  • 0.3
    • Armory Caching works for both US and EU armorys.
    • Removed un-used files.
    • Put the majority of the codes HTML creation as templates and use vbulletins ajax.php and hooks.
    • Added options for default locale (armory) to use (currently EU and US armories).
    • Added option to disable caching of the Armory (i use it to test armory retrieval)
    • Added ability to specify what armory the character / realm you would like, see usage notes below.
  • 0.2
    • Armory Caching never actually worked properly, this should now be fixed.
    • Remove the includes/functions_wow3bbcode.php file. This has been replaced by a plugin.
    • Remove the clientscript/phparmory/config.php file. This isnt needed.
    • Major updates to phparmory.php
    • Minor Plugin changes + code cleanup.
  • New tooltip javascript
  • New character sheet.
  • Create easy to modify interface for character stats to be displayed in tooltip.

Using the character code is easy enough,
[char]CHARACTER[/char] if default realm option is set and character links is on same realm.
For characters not on the same realm as the default,
For example,
Or, if you want to link a character profile from another locale (i.e. EU realms) , you simply add EU- before the server name.

The same thing applies to linking US realm characters from a EU default forum.

See a working example at (This is a vbadvanced custom page using the BBCode page type).

Added German translation for what i currently have localized. Provided by jluerken

Currently seems to be semi working with 3.8.0

One thing I've noticed is that level 80 character avatars don't seem to work. It just shows the standard low level avatar.

Edit: Fixed this myself, edited functions_wowcharcode where it retrieves the avatar to include a elseif statement for level 80s so it retrieves that avatar rather than the default avatar because the level is unknown.

To the last 3 posters (Multiquoting seems to be broken).

I am currently working on a utility that will allow people to import their current profession recepies and skills and allow you to search it. once that is complete i will go back and fix these issues and a couple others

Mat64, Thanks for the update, i'll diff your changes and add them into the current zip.

I tried using this and it didn't seem to of fix the lvl 80 issue. I'll mess around with it more over the next few days.

I'm also getting some odd results. I have this mod installed on two boards that are both the same version using the same style. One works flawlessly while the other works in FF and I receive a Permission Denied error in IE for line 88 character 6. I'm just getting back into code and all, going to investigate further soon. - Lame, I feel like a retard heh... My site linked to my forums without the www. Once I manually entered the www. and changed the link it worked with no issue.

There's an error I believe if the character name includes accents it'll display an error on the tooltip.

I tried with Xn from EU-Wildhammer.

Firstly, thanks for this mod - it looks great and its been very well received.

However it appears that the parsing of the talents (and consequently spec) is a little out, as we notice a number are saying different but also the talent points aren't showing beside the spec, just two /'s .

If this is something I can fix or you can look at, it'd be very much appreciated.

This may sound like a stupid question but can anyone explain how this works exactly? Does it pull info straight from the WoW servers somehow or is it user input information? I'm working on getting a user input based LOTRO mod similar to this but I'd obviously rather have it automated. I'd love to know!

It pulls the data from the xml in

Also swede baby, we are eagerly waiting an update (and hopefully one with native support for the postbit hack you gave me earlier, my users love it!)

Hi there,

Installed this mod, works fine on 3.8.3 and looks great. I just have one small issue whereby the talents do not seem to be displaying correctly. The screenshot is what is currently display (Balance) but the character is actually Feral ( )

Cheers for any help you can offer.

Just recently after changing themes on my Forums I am noticing an error at the top -

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_wowcharcode.php on line 930

Searched around a little but can't seem to locate the resolution or figure out where the error is coming from. This is only happening on profile pages for users and it's VB 3.8.1

Any chance that this will ever be updated to work with (at least) 3.8 without the current issues?

Thanks in advance!
