This plugin allows you to add information from your Halo 3 Service Record to your WordPress blog.
The plugin displays your emblem, rank and grade, but with a little editing it could also display total the total number of games played, the date and time of the last game played, and any other information on the Halo 3 Service Record page at Bungie.net.
The download includes:
- ardamis-halo3.php (put this in your /plugins/ directory)
- halo3stats.css (copy and paste the contents into your theme’s style.css)
The plugin attempts to create a text file (halo3_cache_YOURTAG.txt) for use as a cache in your blog’s root folder automatically. Some server configurations may not permit the plugin to create this file and you’ll see resultant errors; in this case, you may have to manually create a file with that name and upload it to your blog’s root (and perhaps set permissions).
The plugin accepts one argument: your gamertag.
Insert the code:
<?php if (function_exists('ardamis_halo3')) ardamis_halo3('YOURTAG'); ?>
into a template file wherever you want the Service Record to appear, replacing YOURTAG with your actual Xbox Live gamertag, ex.:
<?php if (function_exists('ardamis_halo3')) ardamis_halo3('ardamis'); ?>
Get the files here: (Current version: 1.0 beta)
How can I add the Service Record to a post?
Thanks to a really neat plugin, The Execution of All Things, you can call functions from any activated plugin from within a post. Once you have both the Halo 3 Service Record plugin and the wp-exec plugin installed, you can include the sig in a post with the line:
<exec type="function" name="ardamis_halo3" params="YOURTAG" />
