Great feature! Been playing this game only 4 years but in this time I've found that this site has SOOO much information and ... it needed a nice navigation tool :D This one's the best choice (^_^) Good job to perculia and whoever else is involved in this site .. ( I don't know everybody :P )
Thanks for making this available. I am one of those who has missed the old front page.That said, is there a way we can get a /database-simple option that doesn't load any images or the sidebar thingies? :)
We are sticking with the front page for people that want to know what's going on in WoW (and site feature updates), and the database layout page for people that need to quickly find stuff, or aren't that familiar with databases. As the playerbase and content changes, the old layout just doesn't work as well for the information we want to feature. Ultimately the old front page buried too much information, including data updates, and this page should be a good compromise where there's an area devoted to database info.
Nice page Perc. I'm curious what DB powers everything on the backend? Specifically I was wondering about the search parameters. There are times when I can't remember the exact name of something and still try to find it.I'm wondeirng if you have any documentation related to types of search operators that can be used?
Awesome feature! It reminds me of the old portal page from earlier days. Kinda retro style. :)
Fabulous new feature! Love it!
is there a place to see how people have their action bars set up? i think you said we could share it but i dont know where to look for them.
It's simple. I like it well done. (:
What's up with all the russian links?
I'm impressed. I like the front-page design (after I got over the change itself, since I'm old and grumpy and hate having my cheese moved)... but I often thought doing DB searches should have been less fidgety and navigational. And now they can be. Excellent!
What Russian links to do you see? We've had a few bugs in the past where languages got mixed up on database pages like battle pets, is that what you're seeing? Can you send a screenshot to ? Thanks!
Looking nice thank you. Instances and Zones are two of the most frequent sections I use. So, as feedback, I will be happy to see that two sections having top menus like Items, Battle Pets, Garrisons...
Huh. Has it really been almost a year and a half since y'all traded the original portal for the news-splash-with-a-small-box-in-the-corner front page? Liking the new portal page though, so don't mind my snark too much. ;-) I'm just a heavy-duty RSS user who gets her WoW news thataway (including Wowhead's RSS feed) and comes here specifically to search, not to get the same news all over again.That being said (*cough*), one small tweak I'd love to see would be a return of the mini-news-blurb section the old portal had (http://web.archive.org/web/20140503024111/http://wowhead.com/). Completely retro version would probably require more effort than you guys would consider worthwhile (and that's not a dig, I swear), but even a scaled down version of the Latest News box I see just right of the comment entry box (*points*) would be awesome. Compact things down and drop the comment count icons and I'd think it could be shoehorned in fairly easily - maybe atop the infobox icons on the right? Dunno. Like I said, I get my news through RSS feeds but it was also kinda' neat being able to go "Oh hey, new announcement/thingy/Easter egg/whatnot!" when I went to look something up on Wowhead.The portal is dead, long live the portal! :-)
Thank you for making wowhead usable again, I didnt really enjoy being forced to use wowdb.com instead.
Awesome feature! Thank you! :)
