Item Link Guide

DKPSystem.com supports item links for a number of games:

World of Warcraft: Staff of Immaculate RecoveryRefresh This Item (from http://www.wowhead.com )
Everquest: Silver Plated War SwordRefresh This Item (from http://everquest.allakhazam.com )
Everquest 2: Raiment of Maligned IntentionsRefresh This Item (from http://eq2.allakhazam.com )
Lord of the Rings Online: Mace of the EldarRefresh This Item (from http://lotro.mmodb.com )
Vanguard: Saga of Heroes: Malore, Helm of TyrannyRefresh This Item (from http://vanguard.mmodb.com )
Final Fantasy XI: ManeaterRefresh This Item (from http://ffxi.allakhazam.com )

If you are an MMO guild you will undoubtedly want your site to have the capability to link items such as Azuresong MagebladeRefresh This Item. Doing this is a simple task, and you can enter this into the Guides, Dynamic Pages (if you have HTML disabled), Forum posts, and News items. (Newsletters will not work for this). But DKPSystem.com's Item linking capabilities go way beyond the typical item linking powers found on other sites. But first, we'll start simply:

Basic Linking

To create a link to an item such as Bonereaver's EdgeRefresh This Item, simply type [item]Bonereaver's Edge[/item]. That's it.

Simple enough.

Partial Names

The system also attempts to be smart if you happen to make a mistake, or were just lazy in typing. Lets assume one of your hunters wants to link Ashjre'thul, Crossbow of SmitingRefresh This Item. How many people do you think will remember "Ashjre'thul" properly and type it accurately every time? Very few. However, to sooth this out, you can type a partial item name in the item link. For example, you could type [item]Crossbow of Smiting[/item] and it would render as Crossbow of SmitingRefresh This Item. Same for Zin'Rokh, Destroyer of WorldsRefresh This Item, in this case, you can just type [item]Zin[/item] and it'll make ZinRefresh This Item.

Class Searching (Only for WoW)

Sometimes you'll find an item that has the same name but is different for each class. You can advance the item search to make sure the item linked is the item you are intending on linking.

Consider the following.

There are 9 different Royal Seal of Eldre'ThalasRefresh This Item in WoW (one for each class). However, simply linking the name with [item]Royal Seal of Eldre'Thalas[/item] Will just randomly pick one for you.

If you need to specify a particular attribute to make the search more accurate, you can specify class by adding ";;classname" to the item name.

So, as an example, if you'd like to specify the Warlock specific item, you'd enter [item]Royal Seal of Eldre'Thalas;;Warlock[/item] and that'd produce Royal Seal of Eldre'ThalasRefresh This Item.

Level Searching (Only for WoW)

The same Technique can be done for Level specific items in the game: Consider the fact that there are 5 different versions of the Lorekeeper's RingRefresh This Item from Warsong Gulch. If you want to specify the one for Level 38, you can do [item]Lorekeeper's Ring;;Level 38[/item], which will produce Lorekeeper's RingRefresh This Item.

Overall Searching (Only for WoW)

Finally, there are some items, most notably the neckpieces from Zul'Gurub. Consider Kezan's TaintRefresh This Item. There are 3 different versions of Kezan's Taint (one each for friendly, honored, and revered). All three are "Classes: Warlock" and None of them have a level requirement. Using the above techniques will obviously not work. However, the criteria specified after the ";;" are not specific, and are instead general searching criteria. You simply need to enter something there that would be unique to that particular item. For example, a unique characteristic of the one you get from revered is "Increases Damage and Healing done by magical spells and effects by up to 14." The other two are only "up to 12", so we could specify the item as follows: [item]Kezan's Taint;;up to 14[/item], which would yield Kezan's TaintRefresh This Item.

Inter-game linking

While your site may be assigned to a single game, you can still link items from other games, if you like. The convention is to type [item=game]Item Name[/item].

Where "game" can be any of the following (they must match exactly):
wow
eq
eq2
ffxi
vanguard
lotro


For example, to link the "Patchwork Chitin Leggings" item in Vanguard, you would type:

[item=vanguard]Patchwork Chitin Leggings[/item]

which would yield Patchwork Chitin LeggingsRefresh This Item

You only need to specify the game if the item you are linking is from a game other than the main one associated with your site.
