3/11/10: Romance of the Three Kingdoms Encyclopedia

Unread postby James » Thu Mar 11, 2010 4:58 pm

Big update today for the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Officer Encyclopedia. It has been re-coded from the ground up to take advantage of all the new site advancements we’ve mentioned earlier. Numerous bugs have been fixed and ease-of-use and performance have both been drastically improved. Also new are a large collection of small features (e.g. Chinese language searching, clickable kingdom/category links, improved color coding, searching, relations).

To fully appreciate everything the new encyclopedia has to offer please enjoy it in a new browser aside from Internet Explorer, which does not support all of our features. Suggested web browsers include newer versions of Apple’s Safari, Google’s Chrome, and Mozilla’s Firefox. In fact, the whole internet looks better in these browsers.

Although numerous bugs have been squashed with this update I’ve surely introduced some new ones. I also have no way, at this moment, to test in Internet Explorer 7, so I’m not sure what sort of layout issues might exist in that browser. If you encounter any sort of problem please send me an email.

I'm happy to receive any feedback on the encyclopedia revision. It took a while, but I actually re-coded nearly the whole thing from the ground up. Lately I've been truly interested in getting this site updated with a new layout and content, but it sure is a pain to bring an eight-year-old website up to current web standards.

Does anyone have Internet Explorer 7? I'd love some screenshots. Perhaps one of the list on the Encyclopedia Home Page, one of entries in a smaller kingdom, say, Yuan Shao’s, and one of an officer entry, say, Diaochan’s.

The little Development Project boilerplate and credits are missing. I'm actually hoping to create a proper home page for the Development Project to inspire new interest in participation.

Update: I was finally able to recover the missing pronunciation files. :)
