EPGP is something we are hoping to add, and is an idea we are looking into as part of the next DKP update =)

We've recently moved to EPGP as well and would definitely enjoy it being integrated into our site.

My guild is using EPGP and im currently avaluating mmog as a provider for us. with support for epgp i think all our needs would be covered in one place. hope to see you add support for this :)

There is no built-in feature for epgp here I'm afraid. There are ways of doing, but it requires some knowledge of php/asp and offsite hosting.
You can see how I've done here: http://www.take10.eu/pages/epgp
But as I said, it's not really done at MMOGuildsites, instead I load an external page into that page.
If you do want to do that, there are some EPGP parsing scripts out there on the web, just google for it.

We have been using EPGP for over a year now in WoW and it would be very helpful to have this used as an option

Our guild switched to EPGP lootmaster - we do it the way Daniel had done it for now. We are using a separate external page

http://www.epgpweb.com/guild/us/Fizzc...

as you can see I have it linked to the main front page ...

www.thehaunted.org

Having more options would be neat. I dont upload the data - one of our raid leaders does but I think its all pretty straightforward.

Hi Cymre,

Our DKP update has been a little delayed, but we will be adding support for EPGP, Suicide Kings and Loot Council with the next DKP update; it's about 4 updates away still however, as we will be doing a few small updates over the next few weeks, then the calendar update, then the DKP....

It is coming, but still a little ways away.

I hope you're enjoying your summer,

Hi Wynlvr,

This is scheduled as part of the next DKP update; unfortunately that is still a little ways away as we have had a few other updates scheduled to go ahead of this still (the mobile version up next, along with some theming/forums updates coming); this will be part of the next DKP update tho, likely towards the end of the summer.

Cheers,

Hi Morten,

Unfortunately as I mentioned above, the DKP update keeps getting pushed back a little as we have a few other updates we are still trying to finish up; we will likely be aiming to get EPGP added around the launch of MoP tho, as we would like to be an option for guilds doing the new raids there...

Cheers,

Seriously? As a project manager I am dumbstruck how you can have the audacity to say "a few updates" keeps you from providing EPGP support, after the request has been brought up OVER TWO YEARS ago.

I'm glad I took my business elsewhere over a year ago and didn't hold my breath for the update.

Hi Lior,

Shivtr is continuously updated, and has received new updates nearly non-stop since we launched more than 5 years ago. We have devoted considerable time to the DKP section to try and make it fit many users needs, but we are not purely a DKP platform, we have many features which must receive updates, and so we aim to cycle through these as best we can.

We really do wish to create the best hosting platform out there, and as a small company of just two gamers we work hard to try and pull this off; but with hundreds of features we want to add queue'd up in our issue tracker, we have to prioritize and plan out our updates. This year, we have spent a good deal of time on the mobile version of Shivtr, a feature no other guild host has, as we feel this becomes more and more important as a growing number of our users access the site through smart phones and tablets.

I mention the mobile update as this is an example of prioritizing which features go live; working on the mobile version obviously delays other features we have in our queue, such as EPGP; if instead we added EPGP, we may not have the mobile version up yet; there is always such a trade off, and when we have a list of hundreds of features we would like to push live, some will end up fairly delayed.

Cheers,

Hey everyone,

Been using Shivtr recently for our World of Warcraft guild. And one thing which would be nice is support for EPGP.

It is completely understandable that certain updates should get priority to the system, but I am with others here.

It is a feature that has been requested two years ago, and the time to develop this would be negligible.

Have a look at http://panda-eu.host-ed.me/epgp_lookup.php?region=xx&realm=xx&guild=xx. (Replace the xx values with eu/us for regions, your realms name, ie: Lightbringer and your guild's name, ie: This is my guild, so final link would be:
http://panda-eu.host-ed.me/epgp_lookup.php?region=eu&realm=Lightbringer&guild=This is my guild)

Not by far the most superior script, but a mere 20-30 minutes of developing it.

Yes, there are ways to incorporate external pages with iframes, which is what I am going to do with this system, but lacking things like using javascript and/or php in the html frames creates limitations and as such a result you end up sitting with either an iframe which is way too large for the imported content or too small and you have to scroll inside it, especially with dynamic content as such.

If you guys are interested in the basis of the code which I used to pull the information feel free to let me know by dropping a comment here and I will send it on gladly.

In the in-term, people who could really not live without it, feel free to drop me a comment and I will write a front-end page for you to pull into your site via an iframe to list your information. ToC apply :D

Below is an example of how it can look :D (ps: not my guild, but one with some epgp data)

Any word on this yet?

Specifically, I'm looking to be able to import the data string from EPGP and have the site do the following things automatically.

1. Post a list of the updated standing, being able to sort by class, EP earned, GP Spent, and PR

2. Automatically calculate attendance based on EP earned for a new raid

3. Listing of drops earned from most recent raid and all past raids.

Thanks so much.

Hi Rich,

We're currently working on some major changes to our platform; but once we finish a few of those and go back to section updates, DKP will be among the top of that list, and with that update we plan to add EPGP support.

This is still a planned feature, tho many features are still above it in priority in our update queue, and realistically it is likely still a ways off.

Cheers,
