Site changes

Hi everyone!

Thank you for being so patient in the past few days, it took quite some time to update the site and address a few important issues but overall the following things were implemented and should now work:

    • Google Site Search
    • WYSIWYG editor for guides and comments
    • Chat
  • More Karma and Private Message functionality
  • An app bar (at the bottom) which will show you immediately who’s online as well as all active chats and system messages
  • A new theme
  • A second hamster was added to the server-wheel, so the site will run faster
  • Random bugs were fixed

Things that unfortunately don’t work yet and that couldn’t be ported into the new version:

  • The biggest thing that got lost with the upgrade unfortunatey is the guide categorization and sadly – as it looks – we won’t be able to restore it. Guides are usually “outlined” in guide books and everyone (from Trusted Member upwards) can help to reorganize guides and put them back together by “outlining” pages. Generally there always is a main page like “Leveling Guides”. Attached to it are all its child pages like “Jame’s Horde Leveling Guide” – which itself has child pages as well (all the chapters Jame wrote). It basically works like a big book with chapters and sub-chapters. All the main “books” with their sub-chapters and child pages will then be visible here: https://www.wow-pro.com/book
  • The display on profile pages is somwhat broken for now and all the content a user has contributed isn’t shown on their profile page anymore. We’re working on it though.
  • Stars and user roles/ranks will soon be visible below profile pictures again.

Features incoming in the next days  (feel free to add suggestions):

  • Facebook connect
  • Facebook like and fan page integration
  • Simplification of navigation (we’ll trim everything down to the primary links on top with a drop-down menu if possible)
  • Display of most popular content on the front page

Cheers,

Snowflake

    “Mark Comment as Read” Option?Sorry to ressurect thread, been busy with school stuff, and saw sooooo many unread messages to look over when browsing, trying to catch up. =)I’m curious, are there “Mark comment as read” and “Mark all as read” options? For both content and forums?I can’t seem to find any such options.Also, there seems to be a thread in the forum that’s buggy. I can’t read it, as the link points to “https://wow-pro.com/http%3A/%252Fwww.filefront.com/17581398/45_48_Crackerhead22_Badlands.lua/” which won’t work, and so it keeps registering as a new thread in the forum even though there’s no new thread (it’s also what brought up the question of such options). Specifically, the thread is in the second page of the cata guide writing subforum, “Addon – Badlands (Alliance)” by Crackerhead. It’s not really bothersome, just an odd bug.Also, chat page has a spam comment you guys missed during your spam purge some time ago (and why are there -two- addon questions chat rooms?).

    I dont mind!Me either, But rather than set mine to zero, can I have atleast 1 point, so I look better than Testing does? 😀 Also snowflake, I love the status window, but I agree the status publishing widget on the front page could do with being relocated

    Small suggestionI kinda like the way the front page layout is, except for one tiny thing. Where the status update currently is, it knocks down any front page news fairly far. Maybe move the status updates under (or over), the “Your Bookmarks” section?

    “Testing” is deleted, don’t“Testing” is deleted, don’t even know what that account was for – thought you guys did ;)About removing admins/mods from top contributors: Unfortunately the only way to accomplish this is to set karma balances to 0 (what Jame and I have). Up to you guys.

    Tiny, Low priority requestI thought of this while chatting with Jame about the Top Contributors box. Since moderators/administrators stop gaining karma, our totals in that box are kinda going to stagnate. I’m wondering if maybe we want to not show mods and admins in that box? Dunno if that’s even possible or something people want to do.Also, is the “Testing” account needed anymore or can we delete it so it’s not hogging the top contributor slot? 😉

    Layout error or…?Is the newest layout change (all boxes on the right, content on the left) intended? I’m not really a fan of it, it seems rather unbalanced to me. Also there seems to be a lot more green around than there was at the top and the bottom borders of the page, though I don’t really have a big issue with this.EDIT: I thin this is mostly me just getting used to the new layout, so don’t read too much into it 😛 I do feel it might feel less weird with only one column of boxes on the right rather than two. But again, that’s just an opinion, it’s all just a matter of opinion at this point 😉

    Well, I still can’t find theWell, I still can’t find the place in the profile to disable it by default, if that’s still an intended feature.

    That said, the new editor is, IMO, MUCH better than the other one.

    It also doesn’t seem to load on guides where I don’t want it to (guides where I didn’t use it before) so as far as I’m concerned, I’m satisfied with it! Thanks a ton Snowflake!

    Doh, that was my mistake, IDoh, that was my mistake, I wasn’t clear enough, sorry. What I meant when highlighting and copying, is before you switch to editing. So you would have to highlight it on the view page.

    As a temporary solutionBefore you go to edit, highlight all the code then copy it. That way when you disable rich text, you can highlight it all and paste over it so it will be formatted right.

    Concerning the rich-textConcerning the rich-text formatter, one problem I have noticed is that it does not read pressing the “enter” or “return” keys as a line break, but rather as a space. For example this sentence was entered as a separate paragraph in the rich text editor, but shows up as simply another paragraph in the preview.   This one was about 4 line breaks down, but appears as 4 spaces.

    Thanks for both of these,Thanks for both of these, Snowflake! You rock!

    I did notice one thing though – there used to be a newsletter box in the lower left corner. I don’t really mind if we see a return of it exactly, but some link somewhere for people to follow to sign up for the newsletter would be excellent 🙂

    WoW-Pro Category UpdateIn the coming days we will be working to re-categorize the guides here on WoW-Pro, as the Shattering has thrown more than just Azeroth into chaos. Many guides now belong in the archive, their content no longer part of Azeroth. Examples include:
    [list]
    [*]Old 1-60 leveling guides (Blood Elf and Draenei guides are still applicable though!)
    [*]Removed World Bosses (nightmare dragons, etc.)
    [*]Removed quest chains (Scepter of Shifting Sands)
    [*]Removed items
    [*]Removed Raids (Zul’Gurub)
    [*]Removed Achievements
    [/list]

    WoW-Pro members of trusted rank or higher should be able to help re-organize these guides. Simply click the “Outline” tab at the top of a guide to change it’s category. We’d really love some assistance in moving these guides to their correct locations. Thanks!

    As for roles – I didn’t THINK I could before, but I can now. So, problem apparently solved, lol.

    I know, wrote about thatI know, wrote about that though a few days ago – unfortunately there isn’t an easy solution for this. For now please just add the Karma you think is missing and as soon as we can see other people’s Karma pages again (I can’t either btw) then we can substract stuff that’s been awarded twice.

    About the roles issue: I haven’t changed any permissions here. You can’t see the different checkboxes in user profiles anymore?

    Hey Snowflake! Sorry to bugHey Snowflake! Sorry to bug you again, but I still seem unable to view other people’s Karma transactions. When I click “view” from someone else’s user page, it brings me to my own Karma page instead. So I can’t look back and see what I’ve awarded karma for and what I still need to do.
