Hello

I think I might be doing something wrong

For some reason I'm no longer able to link any item that as a '

I have tried :
{{RiftItem|Rare|Waykeeper’s-Fallen-Torch}} or
{{RiftItem|Rare|Waykeeper's-Fallen-Torch}} even
{{RiftItem|Rare|Waykeeper’s-Fallen-Torch}}

how should I link those items?

{{Rift Item|Waykeeper’s-Fallen-Torch}}


but replace the { } with [ ] in the wiki and it should work for you.

I have tried your way it work for some items
those that use quote(') in it

but it doesn't work if they have smartquote(’) instaed of quote the browser transform the smartquote into symbols and then can't find the item (maybe some UTF compatibility)

Yeah, smartquotes and suchlike would likely cause problems since they are a different character than a normal quote.

0x27 is a standard single quote/apostrophe. Smartquotes are 0xE28098 and 0xE28099 for open and close. That definitely confuses things.

I made myself a ticket to, once we get some more pressing stuff done, look at trying to turn smartquotes (single and double,) into their normal counterparts in links in the wiki and such at the very least.

is there a good place to report errors or remove an item from a sold list yet? I think this was asked already but not sure.

There's not a tool/report function yet. This thread is probably as good a place as any in the meantime.

Edit: apparently we're also setting it up so that a person can remove his/her own entries.

ok sounds good :) and thank you to all of you for all your hard work you are putting in for the functionality of this site!

Does this site have it's own SIMPLE url yet? I absolutely despise the url that I typically use to get here. Is zam first or rift .. do i leave out www ... where do i put the periods again?

I've been a lover of wowhead for years, but wowhead is friendly - you type www.wowhead.com and you are there. I can never remember and don't want to remember the convoluted url for this site. I'd love to support this site, but if it doesn't have it's own simple url in another week or so I'll just use the curse version with their VERY easy to remember riftdb ...

cheers! Lyphe

True, but I can still never remember it and I'm one of the many that doesn't want to have to think about it everytime. The url shows rift.zam.com ... but the site says zam rift ... and then if you imput http://rift.zam.com, it takes you someplace else ( or at least does for me ) ... or if you input a www it does something different yet again.

Choose a catchy and ez name to remember name like wowhead and then apply it. I'm only posting my issue because I WANT to use the site but find it annoyingly frustrating. I'm also completely confused by why a company would run a successful site like wowhead, and then change the name format to something that is so much more confusing. Why not stick with a formula that works - especially when it is your own formula?

Anyways, I digress. Hope the input is taken under advisement. cheers.

Game.zam.com will pretty much always get you there with the exception of older allakhazam sites. With the possible exception of our mobile site, you should be able to hover over the 'ZAM Network' dropdown and get to any other site in the network quickly.

Hello,

I'm currently working on the instance pages

Adding the loot for all the boss on the main page for easy access but as higher I get in dungeon lvl thee more and more loot there is.

I was wondering if there was a way to create some kind of tab menu for the loot to separate the normal and expert loot while keeping the page clean.

I want nothing more than to get loot off the zone pages and onto tabs. Or mob tabs, and folks can click through. It's on a list somewhere :)

If you can, add them to the mobs they drop from, and then we'll link those mobs to the instances/zones.

We're working on something, but it's not quite ready for public consumption yet. In the meantime, feel free to add the correct items where appropriate.

Dev versions of browsers frequently have very peculiar bugs that never make it to live. We don't support them as a general rule. It's been the cause of a lot of wasted manhours in the past when the bug we fixed was fixed in the browser itself before release.

Isn't the item "You mistake this for a weapon upgrade"? Looks like you're missing a word. (Pretty sure it's supposed to be plural on the items bit, too, but not 100% sure).

Any plans to do a character profiler section similar to the Wowhead character profiles? This would allow a person to review gear combinations off the database information and to figure out optimal set-ups for gear.

I believe the ability for users to add weightings to the gear in your database would set this guide above any others that have come before. Would be nice to be able to make a weighted list for whatever my characters particular needs are.

Unless the add to it, we can get drops and locations of mobs from the data. It should be ready when the update drops. The back-end stuff is 99% done. The UI is very plain presently and not very friendly (definitely not my area of expertise,) so that's getting spruced up.

Someone has posted a fake achievement on the character page, here is a link directly to the page but you can also get there by going to achievements and click on character. Hopefully an admin will clean this up.

It's all automatic and should happen within hours of the data being public.

What "counter of the first"?
