  1. I am using the [ ] tags and the [/]
    But when I post all I get is the text only part and no hover images of card names. I installed directly through WordPress and wondering if you have to edit any of the files to include the links that were given under installation tab on WordPress for the utility?

  2. Hi, I want to use your plugin and I would like to get my card info query url and card image query urls to pull from gatherer.wizards.com. How do if figure out what urls to use?

    1. gatherer has obtuse, unfriendly, unintuitive query format not suitable for third party (or even second party) usage. so can’t help you there and why i do not use them.

      their image URL format is also shown in my installation instructions, as follows:
      http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?type=card&name=

    1. Hi,

      First off, thanks for all of your work on this plugin. The features and flexibility are fantastic!

      However, I’m having some difficulty getting all of the functionality to work. I installed your plugin via the plugin management page on my WordPress Admin.

      First, I had to copy the default decklist parser regex into the decklist regex field in order to get my decklists to render properly.

      Second, the mouse over card image popups aren’t working. I’m confident that I’ve configured the image URL correctly, as the card image will be rendered if I use the image=1 attribute. The anchor link gets generated just fine, but no pop up.

      I would greatly appreciate your assistance on these issues, and I would like to say thanks again for your work on the plugin. Even with the bugs, it is an invaluable tool for my new blog.

      Thanks!

      1. card popup requires javascript.

        1. check that this file “autocard_mtg.user.js” is in plugins/mtgutil/ folder (not subfolder).
        2. check your browser allows scripts to run on your site. (i.e. let noscript allow scripts to run on your site)
        3. test on various browsers. which ones work or don’t work.
  3. v1.4
    added colorless mana: c
    added energy counter (mana): e
    changed old chaos symbol to ‘h’
    added ‘image’ toggle option to card tag : [ card image=1]

    v1.3
    autocard_mtg.js updated to 1.58

  4. v1.2.1
    fixed decklists in comments have bad card links
    added mana symbols: i(nfinite), c(haos), p(laneswalk), y, z

    1. AFAIK the plugin is completed. click on the Download plugin link. click on the “MTG utilities” tag to see other posts about the plugin. I will update this post and put in direct links to the other posts.

      Are you asking about extra features? If so, what exactly do you have in mind?
