    [EDIT] Project shelved for the time being due to lack of community support/interest.





    I need some help!

    I've just started programming with Jiggy.

    I want to make an app that reads data from http://www.wowarmory.com/

    So, basically... you have 3 selection boxes and one switch:

    Box 1: Realm
    Box 2: Character
    Box 3: Guild
    Switch: US/EU

    Have made a start on the interface:

    Would appreciate some advice on how to continue.

    I can provide app if anyone would like to look at it.

    I had a look at the page and couldnt find a search box with the criteria you mentioned.
    If you need to register and log in to see that search box then thats gonna make things a little harder, youll need to deal with cookies then usually and I havent done that in jiggy yet.
    Ive got other things Im doing but if you want to send me your code and any more info (like where is the search box and do i have to register? altho I will anywayz later to have a look) Ill see what I can do for you....allways more willing to help someone thats allready done the interface (allways hate doing that bit).

    What will you do about the characters that have been offline for a long time, and do not show up on the website?

    Probably ignore them, just as the actual website does. The information won't be there to read and process.

    Sweet, thanks for putting some time into this project.

    I'm going to have trouble with the interface. Was going to go for a look similar to the actual Armory art, but maybe i should just put it all in tables?

    Do you know anyone who might lend a hand with the interface. i'm such a noob.


    {EDIT} Since people offer to help and then never do, I've shelved this project for now.
