What the heck happened to the Daily Prophet (MoTD)?

What you once knew as the Daily Prophet and before that the MoTD has now become the Hogwarts Live Blog.

Please note that the Hogwarts Live Blog is currently in Alpha (meaning it's missing a lot of features it should have) so please be sure to petition any bugs you may find.
Edit: We know that the blog keeps popping up, please stop with the petitions. UPDATE: This has been fixed.

If you have any other suggestions or comments please post them below. Yes, you can now comment on individual blog posts!

Here are some bugs you might notice right away:
1. If you click view more books/staff picks it takes you to the same page.
2. You can't change/edit our profile. The link goes nowhere or there's no link to do so.
3. The layout doesn't quite look right in Internet Explorer (MSIE).
4. The bold/highlighted link to the blog doesn't change after you've read it.

Anything that's not on this list please report right away. If you report something potentially hazardous to the site you'll be rewarded with donator points. And even if what you report is not such a big deal I'll probably choose to reward you anyway. The seriousness of the bug will determine the reward.

Please test away!

Is there a reason this pops up every time you go to a different page even if you've read it already?

Yeah, I'm having the same problem with the pop-up thing. It's kind of annoying.

Same as the above two xP

Just keep the page up and minimize it. It'll quit popping up, but as soon as you completely exit it it'll go back to popping up. X.X Hopefully they fix it soon.

We know about the pop up problem, please do not petition that anymore(like the edit says). You'll just have to deal with it until Danilo can fix it.

Also keep the posts relevant to the post topic.

aeschere • Thursday, November 26, 2009 - 8:23pm • #9

Looks good so far. This makes reading relevant posts much easier. Good choice!

LupinDance • Thursday, November 26, 2009 - 10:00pm • #10

well i guess the systems pretty interesting and greater but as the said they haven't completely checked it .

!Headmaster Danilo • Thursday, November 26, 2009 - 10:10pm • #11

It's already fixed. But this is a prime example why it's much better to use Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc. over Internet Explorer (they have better popup blockers). The issue only affected IE users or those with their popup blockers disabled.

I'm giving everyone who reported this some points! ^_^

PS: If you have'nt noticed colors work!

oh nos the blog just interfered with the site and i was not able to get on

!Headmaster Danilo • Friday, November 27, 2009 - 8:46pm • #25

@Forever AislingBlack
It's not a priority to fix that at the current time. I'm working on getting the profile editor up and running.

@Maestro HermioneLilyWeasley
In what way do you think the blog interfered with the site? Cause it probably didn't.
