Check out the newly redesigned front page of Wowhead.
Today the Wowhead team is proud to present our front-page design revamp! We've all wanted this for a while and we're thrilled to finally share it with you.
Each expansion, we evaluate how we present our site's content and if we can do anything better. For Mists of Pandaria, we refined the layout of Wowhead News to better serve our community—we streamlined the design, added some features to the sidebar and changed the domain.
For Warlords of Draenor, we want our community to be better informed about our frequent database updates as well as our in-depth content previews. Many users love our news coverage and blogs announcing new site tools, but we've also heard from other users that they aren't aware of these posts due to the front page layout.
The new front page will make it easier to follow all of our database developments, such as updated Warlords of Draenor data from alpha builds, our new Garrison Calculator, and Profiler updates letting you view your character with their Warlords of Draenor model. In addition, the front page layout highlights other popular content on Wowhead such as patch previews, news roundups, user guides, and important recent tweets from our unique Blue Tweet Tracker.
The search box on all pages is now bigger and easier to click, plus you can start typing anywhere on the page when not focused on a form element to start searching.
The rest of the site looks the same outside of some minor style changes and Class Guides now accessible from the top navigation menu.
Thanks again for your feedback on the revamp preview blog. If you find any layout issues, please report them on Wowhead in the comments or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
