Site Updates: Image Search Results, Loot Specialization Filters, and More
2013/08/01 at 11:12 AM
With all the recent 5.4 PTR coverage, it's a good time to step back and highlight some of the cool projects and database improvements our dev team has been working on. We've added image galleries to our search results, some new loot specialization tools, and more!
Image Gallery: Search Results and "Same Model As" Tab
We've added image search results, generated by our 3D Modelviewer, for all armor and weapons! To view the image results, simply click on the
tab next to the default
option. Clicking on an image will open up our 3D modelviewer, and clicking on the name will take you to the item's page.
We've also turned the
Same Model As
tab on all armor and weapon pages into an image gallery as well. With images for all items, players can easily spot what armor not only has a matching style, but also identical colors--a popular site request among our transmog users.
Wowhead Server Migration Complete
2013/06/18 at 6:06 PM
We had some site downtime today and we wanted to share with everyone why that was--and don't worry, it's good news!
In short, we have just completed migrating servers and getting Wowhead stabilized on its new home. This change will allow us to have better uptime, faster load times, and allow us to create more awesome features in the future.
It will also fix a couple of notorious issues people have been having with our site. Many of you probably remember an issue where pages were not loading correctly. While we fixed it for many people, it was a reoccurring problem for a few regions despite our best efforts. You'll be relieved to hear that this should be fixed by our server migration.
The next few hours are crucial for us so be sure to report any issues you find in the comments here so we can investigate them thoroughly. Moving a site as huge as Wowhead is not without its difficulties, but this will alleviate the server issues we've been having over the past month and bring greater stability to our users in the future. Thanks for your patience, you guys!

Moving in to the more Warcraft-focused news, Olivia brings us up to date on the WoW movie, with a short potted history, before wondering whether it will be a success, theorizing what route might work best for Blizzard's box office, and asking whethe
