Forums: Village pump → Mission icons

One of the millions things I have on my to-do list is to nudge admins about missions, so here it goes. The idea is to add support for mission links purely for visual look. This means, adding icons next to mission names, like the quest and achievement links have them next to their names here. There are several types of icons; those that appear on the report button on the minimap (to denote the expansion), and then the "mission type" icon that wowhead has next to names here and here (to denote that type). Opinions? If agreed, then someone else would be needed to actually do it, tho :-D --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 19:00, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Maybe eithris of suraf can do it, they are good with code Xporc (talk) 08:03, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
I don't see why not. If no one is opposed, I can gather up the icons and upload them. "report button on the minimap", I assume you meant the Missions report, Garrison Report, and Class Hall Report.— SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 17:49, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Yep, those. Forgot to mention that in the original post, and likely you know about it, but I imagine they would function based on parameters like "|class=" for the Legion ones, "|faction=" for the BfA ones, and the mission type icons based on the "|type=" param on every mission.

the report buttons might not work very well for legion & BfA, since many missions are available to all classes/both factions. it may be easier to treat them similarly to quests, just with an additional icon for the type —Eithris (talk) 23:22, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Yep, sounds good. HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 07:56, 5 June 2020 (UTC)


Using {{MissionLegionbox}} as a testing ground (and because it has fewer icons to handle for the moment). See Instructor Tarahna, how's that? Additionally, should the level be included like the quests (e.g. "[100] MissionName") — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 19:17, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Looks good. Not sure about the level. Since the level and item level are different they could have some kind of informative value, so maybe yea. Now looking at the tooltip when mousing over it shows error. Didn't think of that originally, tbh. Should it have a tooltip of the infobox or it's not necessary?

Forgot about the tooltip. Added functionality. Any more information should be included for the tooltip? — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 21:16, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
Maybe cost too? HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 21:33, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
Added. — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 21:35, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Will look into the others ({{Missionbox}} and {{MissionBFAbox}}) next week (unless eithris wants to give this a shot or someone else). Already extracted the icons, just gonna take a bit to separate each image... the Garrison has too much so I'll likely skip some such as professions and classes. {{ProfIcon}} and {{ClassIcon}} should be fine for those. I will hold off on {{MissionSLbox}} until they add the icons for it (didn't find them in my last build dive). — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 19:19, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Kinda went over my head last week. Implemented for {{MissionBFAbox}} let me know if there is anything missing. Onward to the Garrison... — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 00:40, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Looks good! HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 08:00, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi, it's been a while. Implemented for Garrison missions and implemented some Garrison icons for some Legion missions. Feel free to ping me of any issues. Shadowlands is still a don't know situation. — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 03:21, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

Looks like it's okay. Good job! HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 10:07, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

Shadowlands missions don't have icons but it still could benefit with a tooltip, so it was added. Hover over this link for example: Wolfram Alpha. Anything else should be added? Surafbrov (talk) 21:43, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

No objection from me. Morderi (talk) 12:28, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
