Upcoming Front Page Improvements and Survey Giveaway
World of Warcraft is constantly changing, and as part of that process, the Wowhead team evaluates our own site content to see if we can do anything better. We have been hard at work revamping the front page and have a preview to share with our users today.
Back in Warlords of Draenor, we revamped Wowhead's front page to include news articles, which in turn allowed us to share our PTR database updates, new features, and guide sections with a wider audience than before. Since that initial front-page revamp, we further improved the front page with updates such as the popular "Today in Draenor / Broken Isles" daily status updates and expanded navigation bar for Legion guides.
With the non-stop pace of PTRs and weekly in-game events in Legion, we've found ourselves evaluating Wowhead's front page again. Here's what we aim to improve:
Easier News Navigation:
In Legion, Blizzard increased the pace of PTRs and in-game events, while the Wowhead team expanded the news team for more frequent coverage. With only six articles highlighted on the front page, news tends to fall off faster than before. To make news easier to navigate, we're creating more compact and polished previews, adding colorful banners to differentiate between types of news coverage, and expanding the amount of articles on the front page. We've also added a "Latest News" section to the top right of the front page so you can browse the headlines easily.
Better Visibility for Today in Broken Isles:
Today in Broken Isles highlights everything to do in WoW on a particular day. It's currently a bit low on the page, so we're moving it up to where the current featurebox images are. The featurebox images are being removed because they mainly link to content already covered Today in Broken Isles, which feels redundant.
Easier-to-find Blue Posts:
Our reblogs of important Blizzard posts are quite popular, but many players do not know about the
, which powers all of our hotfix and Blizzard Roundup posts. We're now highlighting it a bit better by listing top news from the tracker at the top left of the page. If you want to skip Wowhead's PTR, merchandise, or community posts and just navigate to the Blizzard responses, it should be more convenient to do so.
Below you'll find some screenshots of the upcoming front page layout, with and without advertisements. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
