We are planning to add FFXIV features as the game nears release, though these tooltips provide no method to look up items by name [which means we cannot integrate them with our bank or dkp sections]

We will wait a little closer to release to see which other sites release tooltips and then plan to integrate with the best option; if there are no other options or these tooltips end up being the best option we will then enable them =)

I hope you had a good weekend,

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the link, we'll wait a little longer still to see if a better item database comes out, as yg unfortunately does not support searching by name so we cannot integrate it with our [item] tags, or with our dkp/bank sections; but when ffxiv goes live with no better databases we'll look into the ones linked here and decide which is best to add =)

ZAM is using tooltips just like everyone else does databases. This might be the way to go for MMOGuildsites?

The issue with zam's tooltips is there is no search by name, we need that to auto make tooltips for dkp and bank items, and to allow you to do [item] on your site; we've spoken with yg tho and they may have this soon for ffxiv =)

You cant put the code anywhere. We all have to wait till mmoguildsites implements it for us, then we will be able to use the [item] tag. Till then, we must wait!

That's great! They're the one I was hoping for. Hope this comes through soon, I use yellow gremlin on my blog and was really impressed with them.

How do we integrate that into our forums, or is that part of the "deeper integration?" Because forums do not support HTML very well, and there's nowhere to place the script code within the forums.

EDIT: It seems to have worked after a few minutes.

yellow gremlin's script does not currently update for content added with javascript; since most content on MMO Guildsites is added with javascript, the tooltips won't appear to work until after you refresh the page...

we'll be providing [item] tags soon (likely this monday), which if you use instead won't have this issue, along with integration for the dkp and bank sections.

[item] tag is a go! Thanks guys!

However, YG's Tool Tips go beyond just items. While they work absolutely great for items in game, YG's Tool Tips also extend to Guildleves, Quests, and Skills. Might I suggest a [skill], [leve], and [quest] tag as well so we can take full advantage of this wonderful tool YG has provided for us?

we're actually looking into this as part of our new editor, which is planned with the next update; in the meantime tho you can still link to that content on yg and it will work =)

How about a Server-Status & Server-Alerts box for ffxiv too?

If you can also add a box with a "database search" inside (ex. YG) it will be great :)

By the way good job with [item] tags ^^

The DB search box from YG will not work on our sites because MMOGuildsites doesn't like Javascript. I hope that changes because a lot of nifty things use Javascript.
