DiabloHub Beta - Work in Progress

Welcome to the DiabloHub beta!

I had originally planned on spending the next month working on a new version of the website and releasing it before the launch of Reaper of souls. Unfortunately I have various time commitments that make this a rather difficult project and I will not be able to complete it in time. Instead I have chosen to release the website in a beta version and build it as we go with feedback from you guys.

Things have been broken the past few days as I got everything up and running again. The only thing that still does not work is user registration.

I have made a lot of changes across the website and would love some feedback. The biggest one is the fact that the website now automatically adjusts according to the size of the window or device you are using. Getting the website working well on mobile phones has been a huge priority. I have replaced the comment system with DISQUSS. It's a good looking system and allows people to post without creating a DiabloHub account. There has also been ton of small changes to almost every single page of the website.

Known bugs:
- Creating a new user account is broken and I have disabled it for the time being.
- Guides do not display with proper styling.

All feedback is appreciated! I will be rebuilding the website with the feedback you guys provide.

I think that the new site should have a more ROS color scheme and feel to it. Just my 2 cents.

Carry on the good work Anu!!

Design is my biggest weakness. But it's definitely something I will be looking to spruce up once I get all the features working. I need to finish the item database and add some other features still :)

Thanks Baldy!

The navigation bar now has the recent forum posts feature, it was previously located on the home page itself. I decided to move it to the navigation bar as I feel having a none cluttered home page is best. It also means you can check recent posts from anywhere on the website.

Fixed a bug - it now works on every page.

That thread in which I helped you collect RoS legendary information is missing, which is a shame because there were two posts full of legendaries that you still have not added to your list. :(

A couple things were lost in the database transfer but fear not I made sure to save your post :) I put it on a google doc to use as a reference.

Maybe the quotes don't need to be so big as they are marked with a bar to the left.
The answer to them is small in relationship so make the quotes the same.

I reduced the size and changed a couple other things.

I am considering giving certain users access to the item database. Opening it up to everyone would cause trolls to abuse it, however I could open it up to trusted individuals. This means you would be able to add and edit items in the item database section.

@mentok1982 - Looking at you if you are interested :)

I would love to help! I was actually going to submit test data to you for all the legendaries that I find once Loot 2.0 occurs.

I have website database experience. I almost single handedly entered all the video card data into the database for GPUReview.com.

I have stopped updating that site for now, but if my partners ever get things working again, I might start investing time in it again.

If anyone else is interested in being an editor for any part of the website just send me a message. I think it's about time I started opening things a bit more. News editor or even just a forum mod.

Looks much better now :)

Could you put some kind of Diablo-themed splash image in the background. I kind of feel like I'm posting in an old BBS from the 80s.

I changed a couple pages and put up a background image. It's not the best and I am sure I could find something that fits the current style better, but for now it's all I could find. If anyone else finds a better background image - please share!

User registration works once again! That took way longer to fix than I wanted.

Everything on the website should now be functional. Back to working on the item database!

Hey there, great site. In regards to this quote, I would gladly try to help out when I can in terms of adding information to certain legendary item effects. I actually just came to this thread to try and point out that I'd put up some information on some items but which hadn't yet been added (which I understand, as updating the site involves a lot of work), but then i noticed this quote of yours and if you give me access I'll gladly try and update the info myself. Alternatively, I'll just point out the info and you guys can update it when you get the time, I don't mind.

These are the particular pages:

https://www.diablohub.com/database/item/razor-strop/information/
https://www.diablohub.com/database/item/andariels-visage/information/


anyway, thanks guys, good site.

Thanks, @PrvtPiLe. I do read every comment left, and keep a list of things to do. I need to be quicker about updating items with information from comments for sure though.

I have updated those two items. I will also make a list of all items that benefit from +% elemental damage tonight. Since I get a lot of people asking what items do and what item's do not. Will also specify on the pages of items that do.

Alright I made the page.

Items that benefit from +% Elemental Damage.

If I missed any, please tell me!

Excellent! Thanks for updating those item pages, and for creating the +% element page, that is indeed very useful. Cheers!

Thanks for all your hard work on the database. It's really helpful for gearing decicions.

Suggestion @Anuiran
As long as there is no "Unread post" could you add a link to the different pages in the survey of "Recent Forum Posts"?
So I can jump to 2nd or 3rd page directly instead of always going to 1st page and then jump to the last one of the tread.

For sure, put it on my list of things to do.
