WoW Achievements Feeds for Blogger using Yahoo Pipes



ATTENTION: To all my readers who happen to stumble upon this post, unfortunately the yahoo pipes is having technical problems in their system. as much as I try fixing the widget and its yahoo pipe source code. It doesn't work at the moment. Right now, I apologized for the inconvenience for those who try to use this pipe. I will try my best to update it as soon yahoo fix this problem. Thank you and Have a nice Day!

Hi guys, I know I had been searching of trying to get a WoW Achievements widget for Blogger users. But I couldn't find one, there was some discussions from Blog Azeroth about it, So I tried to see if it will work for me but unfortunately it did not, the yahoo pipe module edited by Zigi was out dated, Almost Evil also discussed this widget long time ago. So I thought I can update this so I can use this widget to post in my sidebar so I found a few yahoo pipe modules similar to the source code of the other WoW Achievements feeds, thought I should give it a try to see if it works if I update them.

One of the source code I got is from Hauntshade but his source code was Europe feeds, so I checked his source code and I tried to update and edited the source link to fetch the WoW achievements for US players. and I tried it a couple of times to see if it's working, I'm glad it worked! you can easily get the RSS code if you only want the list of the recent achievements for your sidebar. Please Click here to go to my Yahoo Pipe to try the WoW Achievements feeds


Note: I'm not claiming that I created the whole source code for this pipe. I only updated and edited some to work for US players and Bloggers who wants to post the WoW Achievements feeds in there sidebar of there blogs as Widgets. You are free to use it for your convenience.

I also like to acknowledge Jinxed Thoughts for helping me get the link of my Wow Achievements rss feeds yesterday when I was trying to put one for my blog. But I changed it a little bit using the Yahoo Pipes I edited tonight, When you mouse over, the wowhead tooltip is now shown which is what I liked if you only use the list of the recent wow achievements. below are also images if how you want to your the yahoo pipe either Image view or List.

How to add the WoW Achievements Yahoo Pipe Widget in Blogger Sidebar?

  • Go to >My Yahoo Pipe and Enter your Character Name, Realm, & Run Pipe.
  • Get the Code to embed the script.
  • Go to your Dashboard-Design-Add Widget-Scroll to get HTML/JAVASCRIPT and SAVE. 
  • For RSS Feeds Achievement list like what I have in my sidebar. with wowhead mouse over tooltip its awesome! Click Get as RSS Dashboard-Design-Add Widget-Scroll down and find Feeds-Put the code and SAVE. 

CLICK THE IMAGE TO ENLARGE! THANKS!

Anyway, Share it to anyone, RT it in Twitter if you like to use this, I believe it will also work for Wordpress users but i think it only works for those who are self hosted services only, because they can edit the html widget. Anyway, Hope for all Bloggers out there this is a great tool to use for your WoW Achievements Feeds for your sidebar. Thanks for reading!
