Adds a nice link about patch and hotfix changes. The template code contains a list of dates for patches that must be updated manually.




The note=, bluenote= and comments= are all optional, but at least one must be included.

  • patchlogo = optional patch logo abbreviation code (default: WoW Icon 16x16)
    • bc or tbcBc icon, wrath or wotlkWrath-Logo-Small, cat or catCataclysm-Logo-Small, mop or mistsMists-Logo-Small
  • patch = x.y.z
  • date = DD-MMM-YYYY
  • note = quoted text from patch notes (paraphrase if needed)
  • bluenote = quote from a forum thread, usually for hotfixes
  • link = optional should link to forum threads about hotfixes
  • hotfixlink = optional will make a link out of the date and should link to WoWWiki Hotfixes page or Hotfixes archive page
  • comment = optional un-official notes, undocumented changes or additional info
    Comments are recommended when an item only gives specifics about the new change. For example "foo was increased to 120%" could have the comment "Previously 90%"


   |note="Gift of the Wild", ranks 1 and 2, are now available on trainers.

   |note=Something was changed}}

Problem / Solutions with the template

We define the patch numbers as #.# in the definitions table, you do not need to add the 3rd number if it is .0.

Problem: In math 1.1 and 1.10 are the same number and will link to the same date in the definitions table.
Solution: In the definitions table mark 1.1 as you normaly would but 1.10 should be marked as 1.10. <<<----- Notice the period or dot at the end of the number. Without this period the template will incorrectly link to 1 date not both.
