Community - The New AOU

Post by Khuri » Sun Jan 06, 2019 7:53 pm

Welcome in 2019 and to the new AO-Universe Website.

We've made some slight changes on the looks of the website as you might notice.
In the background we've replaced lots of old code, updated the forum software to the latest version and improved the general speed of the website.
The page also should work fine on tablets and smartphones and hopefully give you a better overall experience. The URLs of the normal site also should now be a lot more readable. But don't worry, all the old links to the guides are still valid and will correctly forward you to the new sites.

In the process we also removed some old pages which haven't seen much use in the past.
If you should come across something important missing, or if you spot any missing images or otherwise, please let us know :)

Gratz for all this Khuri !
The deployment occured way sooner than anyone could imagine.

AOU starts 2019 in the best possible way :)

Good work on the updated site. It looks good.
If you should come across something important missing, or if you spot any missing images or otherwise, please let us know :)
It appears the endpoint that bots were using to display guides in game is no longer working. Are you planning on bringing that back as well?

The endpoint was: https://www.ao-universe.com/mobile/parser.php

Right, it was still pointing to a previous DB I had on my test system but not live anymore.

Parser is now working again.

Thanks for testing and reporting! :)

I rummaged through the site today, everything's working great, I don't get any 404s or redirections, good work devs!
