2020/2021 reports

Heya, again small things, not really in hurry to have them, but nice to see them at some point.

  1. Noticed that this produces "| affiliation = [[Guardians of Hyjal|Guardians of Hyjal]]", it should do just "| affiliation = [[Guardians of Hyjal]]". May be more cases like this.
  2. This produces "| affiliation = [[Bilgewater Cartel|Bilgewater Cartel]]", it should do "[[Bilgewater Cartel (faction)|Bilgewater Cartel]]"
  3. Quest pages should generate [[Bilgewater Cartel (faction)|Bilgewater Cartel]] in the questinfobox and the rewards section. Probably needs those "(faction)" exceptions double-checked for NPC and quest pages.
  4. Mobs have zone categories on the bottom of pages, creating "Category:<zone name> NPCs". On mob pages - when the aggro is generated to Alliance Horde - could it do "Category:<zone name> mobs" instead (changing the "NPCs" to "mobs" when the aggro is all red)?
  5. It has been decided to no longer use the money line for NPCbox, so it no longer needs to load "| money = 48s 42c" for NPCbox.
  6. Health and mana parameters were also deprecated here, so it should no longer load "| health = X" and "| mana = X". However, if wowhead NPC page has mana data present, let it load "| resource = Mana" right under the level param.
  7. There are changes to the level parameter, so instead of listing numbers from wowhead, have it load "| level = <zone name> (based on their location listed on wowhead, eg: | level = Stormheim). There are some exceptions but, I guess, those will be handled by editors.
  8. Wowhead added "Faction = None" to their quest pages, and the WET also loads it, but it is not supported on wowpedia. Have the kit ignore "None".
  9. It no longer loads races and gender.
  10. It no longer loads objectives for quests, here and the objective items here

For future reference, I'll update the following when we know more, but Template:MissionSLbox is for new Shadowlands missions. For now, we need to wait for the currency and abilities in order to make the template compatible with the wowhead Shadowlands mission pages. --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 23:15, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, will check these out. - Linneris (talk) 06:47, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Pushed 2.0.11, implementing all these fixes and suggestions. As usual, the Firefox version is already available while the Chrome version is pending review now published too. - Linneris (talk) 16:07, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Nice! PeterWind (talk) 16:10, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you very much! --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 16:41, 16 April 2021 (UTC)


WET doesn't seem to work, it opens a blank window. --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 09:12, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

This was caused by Wowhead removing mission threat localization from their localization file. Fixed in 2.0.10. Published for Firefox, the Chrome version is taking its sweet time in review, as always. - Linneris (talk) 10:20, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Fix now published for both Firefox and Chrome. - Linneris (talk) 12:10, 20 October 2020 (UTC)


Would it be possible to include a {{Repair}} in the ==Sells== section before the available goods for NPCs that offer that service? An example would be Kris Legace who is seen here with the "Can repair" tag. PeterWind (talk) 15:16, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Quest objectives and faction replacements

Thanks as always for such an incredible tool. One thing I've noticed of late is that the bulleted quest objectives are not getting parsed properly. For instance, on N [60 Daily] Assail Mail, the objectives section should contain this content:

Retrieve 6 Stolen Messages from the Scholar's Den.
* [[Stolen Message]] (6)

Additionally, could the following factions be replaced?

Thanks again! --Kaydeethree (talk) 18:00, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Moreover, Wowhead recently added new links to quest texts. For example, [1], there's a link in the first sentence in Objective "Slay [Old Frostclaw]." and in the Description "[Old Frostclaw] has once again...". The toolkit now doesn't load the words that have links in Wowhead.

So what should the toolkit do is ignore the new links (in the description and the first objective sentence), but load the words, and offer the link for the mob/item in the bulleted points (as kaydee listed above in the *[[Stolen Message]] (6) example)

And possibly, if the objective is only one sentence, has a link, but has no bullet points like here, could the toolkit take advantage of the Wowhead link and produce:

<nowiki>Speak with Alanna Holton.</<nowiki>>

The link in the description would have to be ignored and have it load only the words.

Thanks!--HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 09:48, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Cosmetic items

Right now, cosmetic items are tagged with "type=Cosmetic". Could those instead be tagged as "cosmetic=1"? PeterWind (talk) 15:04, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Items are not part of this toolkit. That functionality is something else. --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 15:11, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah I went here to revert that note as soon as I was awake enough to remember that hehe. PeterWind (talk) 16:15, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
I could always rectify that, though, and make the toolkit parse item pages if there is demand for it. - Linneris (talk) 06:48, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
I think adding items functionality to this tool would be a great idea. — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 01:02, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
