Status of site 13-Jan-2020

Post by bringoutyourdead »

Much improvement today after figuring out the road block.
Many if not most pages are working as before.

A few still do not.. as I haven't gotten to them.
I need to fix the site to extract the latest announcement headlines as before on the home page. That may take some doing.

Re: wow 8.3 .. the current beta should be able to handle the new races as it has been coded in for some time.
The site.. is not so ready.
Tuesday or Wednesday if the timing is bad for me.. I will re-test, verify and probably upload a new CensusPlus with just minor tweaks.

Armory links for your characters:
if your realm has an English spelling of only one word... the link should work for both NA and EU realms
if the realm has more then one word (i.e.) includes a white space (eg.) "Area 52" or has accent marks it probably will not work, I need to modify the naming of the realm to match Blizzards modifications.

However I probably won't have priority on that as Blizzard has already announce that the armory as is current is going away again as they move to their third or is it fourth iteration for presenting the data.

oh interesting about the Armory changes coming .. any more info about that? I did a quick search on Blizz forums, wowhead and google and couldn't find anything.

Re: the realm names .. my realm name is Lightbringer - and there are both NA and EU versions of realms with the same name, iirc .. will it cope with that?

I should learn to check first, THEN type :p I checked the link for my character and it doesn't work .. but it should work in theory.

The only thing different between the actual link when i load it direct, and via the link on the character page here, is that the link from here goes to:
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/chara ... Poisonenvy

The direct link goes to:
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/chara ... poisonenvy

- I'm assuming the capitalisation makes a difference?
