As you most likely have noticed, the forums look a bit different today: they have been redesigned a bit and moved into the brand new Villagers & Heroes website!

You can now go here for anything Villagers & Heroes related:

villagersandheroes.com
website.jpg
In fact, you're already there! Using the top menu you can now access anything related to V&H, including the forums. Note that as a result of this the address of the forums has changed to villagersandheroes.com/forums - so be sure to update your bookmarks. The old address will still redirect though, so don't worry about old links going dead. :)

Features of the new V&H website:
  • Anything V&H-related is now in a single place, on a single site, and can be accessed from the new top menu.
  • In-game news feed items are now shown directly on the website/forums, so you can always stay informed of what's new!
  • Everything* is now fully mobile-optimized and accessible.
  • The Ardent Ledger is back! Use the "Newsletter" menu button to access it, and check out the brand new ledger out today!
* Except for the Talent Builder - sorry, that one feature remains desktop-centric for now but will likely receive a redesign later on.

If you encounter any issues or bugs related to the new website/forums, post in this thread to let me know!

It's a video, so it's possible that your mobile browser is disabling it to save on data or performance. See if it shows up on a desktop computer :)

I really love how seamlessly it's all integrated! (And I think my fave new feature is the Announcements banner -- So cool to have that both on the character select screen AND on the website, too!) :D

I have a problem with the link in the end of this thread: https://villagersandheroes.com/forums/threads/what-is-a-royal-guardian.25/
(this link: https://forum.villagersandheroes.com/showthread.php?13793-Royal-Guardians-of-The-Realm-Complete-List)
Firefox is yelling at me when I try to open it - something about unsecured connection and security breach.

"forum.villagersandheroes.com" is a really old URL - it was used for our forums several years ago but hasn't been in use since. Since the old forums are no longer available, it leads to various issues when trying to access these old pages.

I changed the redirection to more specifically inform about why these links are inaccessible. Let me know if that makes things more clear!

Yes, it's better, thanks. The link to the 1st thread is in the ledger - that's how I found this.

The new website looks really good!

Ivar, you never do cease to impress. I've always enjoyed digging through websites that are rich with content, especially MMO websites. There is no comparison between the old school interface they employ and the fresh, interesting designs you come up with. Great job as always at creating a crisp and modern platform that stays true to the old school feel of a fantasy MMORPG

When I click on a thread to view the latest unread post, the top of the post is being cut off by the new header banner.

It doesn't happen on new threads... just threads where I have already viewed some of the posts.

Thank you, much appreciated! :)

*wipes tear* so proud of these guys - this is fantastic!! Watching this game continue to grow to new heights even as it's been established for some years now is so exciting. I just started playing this year, and it's incredible what they've been able to accomplish even in that small amount of time. Thank you Otters for all you do!!

Thanks for the new updated website and forum. I wonder if the player and guilds ranking table will be added back? Perhaps in a modified form.

I'm not noticing anything different initially other than my banner doesn't look like others. My banner is blank but has a box to click for a drop-down menu that covers my screen; cannot say it's convenient.

It's not planned in the short term but it's definitely something I'd like to add back in!

The appearance of the top menu depends on your screen size/resolution. On most PC screens it looks like the image posted in the first post in this thread, but if your screen resolution is very low, it switches to a smaller header since the large one would not fit. On (most) mobile devices, it also uses this smaller header for the same reason.

Your screen appears to use a width of 1280 pixels which just happens to be exactly on the threshold! Add in the scroll bar and you're a few pixels below, which results in the layout you're seeing.

I'll see if I can change the cutoff point just a little bit - there's only so much that can fit on the screen at smaller sizes, but indeed the full menu is more useful than the smaller one and since you're so close to it I think it would make things a bit more useful :)
