Have we not been in a state of soft launch for four years?

Sorry but cheers for this I have not. It is just another failure to deliver.

Haha! Beleive me, that is our wish. When we get the Content Market out, I may finally use some of my vacation time just to celebrate. XD

Still working on getting the fix in place, but we're moving forward despite the many issues we've had, even if we do feel like inch worms in this area.

Well, we now know what was holding up Paizo. They have redesigned their website and it looks fantastic. Hopefully now they get to working on the LWD issues.

Heh. I see your "fantastic" is my "fonts are unreadably small and navigation is broken in places". :(

I'm sure they'll fix things up eventually.

At least Paizo finally had some professionals do the site. The last site looked and functioned like it had been been done by an 8 year old.

Wow, the new site is so better than the old one. But I think it is the same developer, just grown up now as the store is having the same layout

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

In the meantime, we believe we have found a temporary solution that, while not perfect, may allow us to go ahead and launch the store. It will take our devs some time to implement but if it goes as planned we will have something for you next month. Please be aware, it will cause some hiccups during the purchase of Paizo items but you will still be able to purchase them with a few extra steps.

I know it's not the news everyone wants to hear, it isn't the news I want to share either, but it's what we have to work with at this time and I'm doing my best to see that we get this out despite limitations. At the very least, it gives us hope!
Guess not. Any news at all?

Paizo's redesign is up. Was that what was keeping their web guys from working on this with you?

Paizo are going g to remain busy for a while by the looks of the feedback the new site is getting.

Yeah, I'm not terribly impressed myself. Hopefully whatever they did will improve load times, but it looks like they broke all their forum links... Again.

Load times have been worse for me. Fonts are now too big in the forums, but my user style that previously made the fonts bigger now makes them smaller so it still works out. The Paizo folks did post that they plan to put in a proper redirect so old forum links should go to the right place, but I don't know if/when that will be implemented.

Paizo's website uses a self-built CMS on an underlying system that's been effectively dead for years. The HTML it generates is somewhat poorly structured (some of which you might expect, given its age) and the changes we've seen so far have been fairly superficial. Scraping the frosting off a cupcake and putting different frosting on it doesn't make the cupcake less stale. They've had turnover in their technical staff in the last year or so, which couldn't have helped. Hopefully, though, they're on a path they like and will keep making improvements.
