WOW Guild Widget

The widget pulls guild roster data from wow servers, links each member to their own wow armoury and displays them in sidebar.  It doesn’t have to be your guild. It can be any guild  but you need your own free BattleNet APP Key. See below.

The Guild Members Widget has been updated to support Legion Demon Hunters, Pandaren race and works with WOD.

WoW Guild WidgetThis guide has changed from previous ones and is for new battle net  API SERVICE “Mashery” AND SERVERS.

Blizzard has moved to a new Public API system.

Old, anonymous API calls no longer work from Feb 16 2016. This affects everything that retrieves WOW data.

This new API requires that every website that attempts to retrieve and display wow data registers with Mashery and gets own APP key. (This is very similar to Twitter key that is needed for displaying its feed on personal website.)

 

The widgets require app key for your website. (it’s FREE and easy to get app key)

So to get the App Key register Here: https://dev.battle.net/

Create an “app”, name it whatever you want, put your website in the provided field and click create.

It’ll give you Secret Key and App Key. (They aren’t the same thing.) DO NOT share Secret Key with anyone.

You’ll need App key to enter in Guild widget.
