Diablo® III

Is the Blue tracker a friend only secret

Hello,

I have asked on this site before as well as emailed a few people I know the addresses for at Blizzard and I do not get answer, Yes, No, We cant help you and why. Nothing, No replies at all.

I know half a dozen sites out there that have the Blue Tracker, some with Item Databases, some with skill Calculators. ETC.

I have scoured the Internet looking for an API, or a Script that pulls the data (Other than the ToolTip which I use on my site and is quite cool) for any of these things stated above and nothing. Only links to those sites that have the Scripts or API's installed.

As is I am pulling from the RSS feed of one of these sites just to get some blue posts on my site but I would really like to do it like they are doing, the right way in my eyes.

I am not a programmer in any sense of the word otherwise I would probably know how to do it myself.

So, since I cant seem to find it in the wild, and no-one will share the knowledge or point me in the right direction, is this a friend only kind of deal, or do you have to pay blizzard for the ability.

I came to this forum section to post the exact same question but here it is.

I agree fully with your OP and am looking for the same information.

Oh, a respon...nope, nothing, no sign of an answer yet.

Is it just an html page scrub?

It's a good possibility, at this point I wouldn't say no, but, I don't know how to do that either, so...

something interesting though, if you look at the one that diablofans has, it not only pulls the blue post but also the post the blue is replying to, which makes me think it is not just a scrub.

Thanks, I was unaware

So, I need a coder

It was offered to me once, someone to set it up, but he wanted $1,000.00

I said, umm, No, thanks anyway.

Sad

It took me 2 seconds to find this via a Google search, and less than that to add it to one of the homescreens on my Google Edition Galaxy S4. What ever type of place you decide to add the Blue Tracker info, you'll need news feed software to pull the information in a format where you or your visitors can see it properly.

Here's the address you add to the newsfeed software:
http://www.blizzposts.com/rss/d3/en

Here's what it looks like on my phone:

I don't require payment, but RoS would be nice. ;) (kidding)

This is someone else, Blizzposts.com's blue tracker, not Blizzards RSS feed that people like Blizzposts.com is pulling from.

I already use diablofans.com's rss feed to fill my site until I can find a correct solution

Thank you though

No, there is not different info between blizzposts and diablofans, i'd just like to use the original instead of snarfing off of others.

Also, having the original I could do more with it like formatting and what gets pulled, by using a 3rd party's you are limited

There is no API. All sites that do this program their own scrapper tools. If you do not want to use RSS feeds, you have to program your own tool.

I don't know why I can't quote anything anymore, however, looks like @molster provided the answer!

And to that, :(

Hmm, highlighting the text and hitting quote worked but not the "reply". Didn't the "reply" used to quote also? Oh man, I'm losing it.

Right after the reply button, there is a bubble button. That is the 'new' quote button. Just click there you are good to go! :)
