My collection doesn't get updated properly. Here it says I have 539 pets at max level, and 25 uncommon pets, while when checking my collection on warcraftpets website it tells me I have 555 at max level and 18 uncommon pets. Any idea why it's like this? I use the same char for updating both profiles.
EDIT: Am leveling battle pets atm, so the numbers mentioned above are no longer correct. There does remain a difference of 16 pets at max level between both sites, as well as a difference of 7 uncommon pets. (edited)
Any link from the widget sends me to what appears to be a 404 page in German. Would also like to mention that last night, the widget's date was off as well for me. It was showing the date as the 17th when it was still the 16th here in the US. As Grainne said, it probably has problems between EU/US.
love the site and want to submit my bug report. I am not sure where to post this bug report so this post might need to be moved or removed. Here is my problem: When I am looking at a strategy on my touch screen device, in Google Chrome for Android 80.0.3987.162 and click on the alternatives. A menu comes up, but if there are too many alternatives on the menu I cannot scroll down the list. If I try to scroll down it reacts to the first touch and immediately closes the menu even if I press directly on the scroll bar. It does the same thing even if I request the desktop site version in my browser.Very annoying because I cannot see all the alternatives. Thank you. (edited)
Hey! Absolutely the right place for this type of feedback :)
The sad but simple answer, though, is: There is no mobile version of the page. It was never designed to support mobile :/ I try to make tweaks here and there but lack the knowledge (and time) to make it really mobile friendly.
I'll log a bug ticket for me to look into the alternatives tab a bit more, maybe I can come up with a solution. Thanks for reporting it and sorry I don't have a better answer for you!
Some people also don't like to alt + tab if they only have one monitor. I know for me, half the time I don't remember what I was looking at when I move to a different screen. Imagine trying to do some of the strats on here, and alt-tabbing for each step.
I don't have to imagine; that's what I do when I'm checking a strat out. (I really should bring down my second monitor and find the adaptor and set it up again.) What I can't imagine is the awkwardness of trying to use a phone screen instead. But OK, if people do that, then they do, I guess.
when i'm not at home during the week (which is usually the case if not for the current quarantine stuff) and not always have access to a pc or tablet i'm sometimes forced to do strategy reworking on my phone... and that really isn't pleasant at all
Hi, are you aware of a bug that is effecting the site's Export Team feature? The error message below seems to be injecting itself into the export, also every line now includes a BR HTML tag in addition to newline markup tag.
This error message: "Use of undefined constant language - assumed 'language' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /kunden/426045_85652/webseiten/Petguide/classes/ajax/bt_rmsteps.php on line 152

I don't know if something like this is possible, but a suggestion -
For the pet dungeons, instead of just spitting out the optimal strategy for each encounter based on our pet list, make a dungeon optimal strategy list all at once? What I mean is I look up, let's say, Gnomeregon, and it tells me for optimal strategies to use the same pet in 5 fights. Maybe something where it starts at the last fight and works backwards, so your best pets are used for the last fight (let's say it's fight #10), then it goes back to fight 9 and looks for an optimal strategy that doesn't use the 3 pets you'll be using in the final fight unless you have 2+ of one of them. This way you don't get to fight 8 and it says to use Ikky, but all 3 are either dead or too wounded from fights 2, 4 and 5 to be used again. (edited)
That's definitely planned :) It's currenty listed as "Upcoming Project: New Dungeon Tool" and what you are suggesting is *exactly* what I'm planning to do ^^
Hope I'll be through this current database rework soon so I can jump on cooler stuff like this one.
Thanks for the suggestion! If you have any other ideas, always happy to hear them
I would suggest GitHub or GitLab for maintaining and developing this project. These 2 tools are no overkil for this "small project" as you called it in the beginning. Both offer free code versioning for private repositories, Issue Tracking and more. Personally I prefer GitLab as it has more features.
I know about both and what they do, but have never used them to work on a software product. I'm very much a novice in this field and in the creation of this page I made many mistakes that make it very hard to move it to a repository, mostly security details (hardcoded passwords yay!). The effort to make everything ready for such a move is probably quite high, and a big unknown to me. So it's part not wanting to invest the time and part not wanting people to see the code behind this page that keeps me from doing it ^^'
I'm a professional software developer and I work with GitHub everyday. So in case you are interested in learnig how to get to a "new Level" I could give you some tips. With private repositories your code is not public and not visible to others. In case of hard-coded passwords and stuff there are simple methods how to handle it, e.g. using .env files or simple array files. But I also understand that it's a bit of work to migrate this project to GitLab etc
I’d like to report a bug, hope this is the right place. A linked group of similar crabs, starting with Kelp Scuttler, does not have their abilities aligned. For example, if the Kelp Scuttler is listed with the skills 1 1 2, when you scroll through the rest of the group, they are all listed as skills 2 2 2, while they should be the same as the first one. You can see it in this strategy:
Wondering - now that they changed the way pet battles work, would it be doable to add the pet trainer names in brackets beside the quest name? Not everyone knows the WQ name if it isnt up, but the trainer name is easy to reference.
Not too soon: To avoid duplicates, any achievement-specific (Plushie, Family and as it was suggested The Longest Day) strategy could be automatically linked in the "global" encounter list (still redirecting to family section after clicking). To prevent clutter, they could be displayed only via user input to show more. If this is not worth it, just expand the duplicate warning to all sections of the page… though it could be problem when someone decides to apply a strat the other way i.e. from globals to specific ones :P
Implementing a mention feature like I've seen you talk about sounds fantastic.
Another thing I've thought would be great would be adding a "date posted" and/or "date updated" to strategy pages. That way if/when Blizzard nerfs and makes changes to battle pets again, we'll be able to see when the strategy was posted, and whether or not it's been updated since the changes Blizzard made, so we know to alert others in the comments about it or to just look into finding a more recent strategy.
