WOW Recruitment Widget


A widget that helps to display recruitment message of a World of Warcraft guild.
It works just fine out of the box, but it is very customizable with some CSS techniques.
Customization tutorial can be found here

  • please save the widget once after upgrade from 1.0.x to make it work with new codes,
  • make sure you backup those color codes before upgrade if you have changed them before 1.2

New in 1.4.6:

  • added demon hunter class
  • this plugin now uses npm to build SCSS stylesheets, see source code for details, mixins will be useful if you’re building your own wordpress theme

** I will not be actively updating this plugin, but I’ll still do occasional update like this one when I’m bored,
please feel free to fork this project from github.

To use this widget, simply go to Appearance => Widget and drag it to a sidebar as similar to other widgets.

If you found bugs or want to correct some of my codes, please file issues in github 🙂

require npm to build stylesheets

npm run build to build stylesheets continuously to ./css/ until Ctrl+C to terminate, test page can be viewed at http://localhost:8001
