Waypoint to clipboard (links in guides)

Postby Bestbuy » Thu Sep 12, 2013 12:06 pm

I just found out you can mouse over the locations and then click the popup to get a waypoint into clipboard...

The lower part appears, and I always thought it silly to show that when the coords were always in the text anyways.

So today I did some experimenting, and the popup always disappears when I leave the mouse overable text, but if I moved my mouse just right, fast enough, and not too far it would stay, and I saw you could click them for /waypoint 1090 1145 4881, which, tbh, is friggin epic! since I can change that to !waypoint 1090 1145 4881 and make our bot get everyone a clickable link, so the entire team has it.

Erm, yeah, this was a PSA, plus a feature request: I don't know much about the htmls, phps or javascripts, but is it possible to make this thing easier to click on?

Either by the first mouseover area also being clickable to get the waypoint, or by the popup staying for 1s after leaving the area. (The browser thinks you left the area when you go to click the popup)

Oh, I tried with the old Opera and Chrome, same issue.

Thanks for all your hard work! :)

If you move your mouse very fast on the popup, but don't go past it, it works.

It gets better with some practice, I just noticed, but still kind of a shame ;).

Thanks a lot for the swift reply, and all the great work you do to keeping this game playable!

Hi Bestbuy, thanks for your report.

Depending on the browser there might be a gap between the text that makes the popup box appear and the box itself. If you go over that gap your focus is not on the text anymore and the popup disappears. I fixed it by moving the box closer to the text, so there should be no gap anymore independant of the browser.
There is also an info-text that tells you to click the coordinates, if you hover the mouse over the box (explaining the mystery of the copied coordinates :D). You should be able to see that now.
So much for the technical part.

tl;dr: fixed!
Enjoy! ;)
