Gamer Launch V5 Feedback

How can we improve our V5 options?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Ability to import WoW ingame calendar events into the sites calendar

    It would be awesome if we could import the events created in the in-game calendar of WoW to the calendar of the guildsite. I believe this can be done, as calendar things are visible on the armory also, and actually believe that some of your rivals are already doing this.

    Currently the calendar funtion on the site is pretty much useless, since it's tedious having to manually create the same events both in-game and then again for the sites calendar.

    I'm not asking for a two way sync, as that's probably not possible. Only the ability to import data one…

    • More information on Colour Wheels

      Currently you just click on the colour wheels in a "pot luck" sort of way to find what looks good, and you just eventually work out which segment of the wheel represents which part of the site .. it would be nice to either be able to hover over a particular segment to see a tooltip explain which part of the site it represents, or hover over a particular segment and it highlights that part of the site to show what will change, or simply have an "example" colour wheel explaining the same? Or this could perhaps be incorporated into…

        Custom color themes are planned and will likely include a bit more documentation.

      • I cannot find out how to make drop down menus

        You've put on the "feature requests" item relating to this on V4 that this is now active on V5. I know there are some drop down menus on the main home page, but cannot find how to add to or alter them .. is that possible?

          Right now you can’t roll your own menu, that will come later. Right now the dropdowns represent existing navigation structure and will be created for custom sections that have sub page.

          Roll your own menus are coming later.

          • Newsletter Improvements

            I don't know if this is V5 Feedback or if this is carryover from a previous feature, but one problem that I am having is with Newsletters going to my guild's spam folders. Moreover, I have been told by many people that because the email address is "noreply@guildlaunch.com", many of them simply deleted the messages for weeks until they realized it was from their guild.

            Second, you cannot post multimedia links in the newsletter.

              • Spoiler button to show/hide large amounts of text

                Normally when working with source code you can create a link class and create a button that hides a large amount of text (like a proper spoiler, not black it out) so it doesn't have to take up so much space when skimming through the post (and it makes you able to hide large pictures unless people actually wants to view them).

                • Site Mode: Guest View

                  Site Modes are currently, "Live Site", "Edit Widgets", "Manage Styles". Since I can restrict some items/widgets to members/non-members, I have a need to see how my site looks to non-members.

                  This is currently only doable by logging out to view the page as a guest would, then logging back in if I want to make changes.

                  Solution:
                  + Site Mode; Guest View

                  While in Guest View the user will only see items/widgets that would be visible to non-members of their site.

                    • What is or isn't displayed on the Mobile site

                      Can we customize what Widgets are displayed on the mobile site, and what are not? If we can't its not easy to find..

                      Why when going to the mobile site, why do we get the "ad" for the mobile APP even if I we are a paying customer.. Maybe we don't want that to be showed?

                      Some widgets like the server status Widget, when you are linked to 5 realms and have to have 5 different widgets the pages get really long, especially on the mobile site..

                      Just some examples.

                        This is definitely an interesting idea. We’ll evaluate the options here and see what we can do.

                      • The text areas need to allow for various font sizes and fonts. A story widget would be great like the one used on guildportal.com.

                        Text areas to allow for various font sizes and fonts and more flexibility in editing html. A story widget that allows chapters linked by a index on the main page would be great like the one used on guildportal.com.

                                  I really liked the getting started guides, but it would be nice to have a way of returning to them at a later date. Also, it would be useful if the "help" link on the various pages went to guides/FAQ pages that were relevant to the page you were actually on at the time .. so if you were on the site style page for headers, the help link would take you to guides about headers ...

                                    When you're in forums, in an actual thread, at the top right corner of the first post are two buttons, one above the other, both saying "reply" with a drop down option, and both defaulting to "reply".

                                    I believe the top of the two (which relates to the full thread and not the first post) should say "topic" and default to "watch" .. it seems redundant to have that top button to also default to "reply" (and also looks a bit weird).

                                    • ipad issue

                                      when accessing the site using an ipad the menu bar at the top has the user/profile icon too far to the right, 50% off the screen, making using it rather tricky.
