Not sure what's going on right now, but I can't get anywhere near the new site. I've tried in Firefox and Chrome, tried clicking links and typing in the url, and it all redirects to www.wowhead.orgHaving the same issue. I would like to bookmark wowheadnews.com, but it seems pointless when it redirects back to main wowhead, which I already have bookmarked.
This is a bug that just happened, Koper is fixing it right now. Sorry =(
This was fixed; if this is not working for you you will have to clear your browser's cache. We are very sorry about this.
Absolutely love this.Best wishes from a former Insider writer. You guys have what it takes to make it.
On the topic of Themes, I don't think the dark header matches the light theme. I know it's iconic for Wowhead to have a dark background, but if you're going to offer a light them I'd make sure that the theme was a little more color coordinated, rather than having the current clash. I think using the same wrapper graphic that is present on the lower background sections on the top of the page in place of the dark color has some real promise for the light theme.Also, how are the guilds on the site picked from those on the forums list? From what I can see currently, only premium members or Wowhead staff are getting their guilds on the list.
It looks like the redirect bug was what my problem really was, it just didn't trigger until I allowed the script. Irony. Now I can use it on Firefox and... I give up. If you at least had preserved collapsed news articles, I definitely could live with what my personal preferences consider to be cluttered and ugly. However, as it is, now instead of clicking a bit, I get to scroll a lot.
I'm sorry to say but I really dislike this new version of the news/blog, it's extreamly cluttered looking.It isn't running with internet explorer correctly, whenever it loads you get a compatability View error, so the big square advert type things are all over the top of the site (including over the top of the first post). Theres no database dropdown list to quickly go to a section of the database and theres no database searchbox.The wowhead type icon in the topleft links to the page you are looking at (which IS kinda useless) and not the database main page.The blue writeing on the blue background is very difficult to make out. (I myself have dyslexia, so it's probably just me)The constant moving avatars in the blue tracker section are very distracting.Also there's an area at the bottom that says 'comments' but theres nothing there that you can type in. I had to go through the forums to find the thread :/I know people always want things shiny and new, but theres an old saying.If it aint broke, don't fix it. (Something Blizz needs to learn too xD )Is there any option that alows people to view it in the old format at all?
If it's not on the forums I'm not bothering with it...think the idea of making news on a seperate site from the database is moronic.
FWIW, I really wish that the feeds from the news/blog site would not be posted onto General or would do so less frequently. I enjoyed reading General, but it almost feels like the forum users are getting pushed out by blog posts. New forum posts are becoming far and few between, or at least it feels that way when the first page of General is mostly blog entries.Please decide what Wowhead is, and just take it in that direction. If you try to be all things to all people it will fail. Is this a Blog? A Database? A Forum? A News Site? A Players Guide? This place is feeling less of a community, and more corporate as the months go on, and that's a damn shame.
