One last patch before we switch gears and focus more on site content.

Minor changes:

  • Added breadcrumb navigation to header.
  • Added "Report an Error" form on page footer.
  • Increased visibility for average user ratings.
  • Increased visibility for admin comments.
  • Comments can now be linked to via #x method (by clicking on the comment number).
  • Added reviewer info.
  • Added support for review titles (stay tuned).
  • Added support for multiple polls at once (stay tuned).
  • Removed StumbleUpon, Tumblr and E-mail from social sharing options.
  • Added SSL certificate (The site will always be in "https://" from now on).
  • Added a cookie notice when a new session starts.
  • Expanded FAQ to include privacy policy and terms of use.
  • Added privacy policy checkbox to all forms.
  • Updated sitemap format.
  • Updated schemA rg compatibility.
  • An undefined country will now appear as "Unknown" instead of being hidden.
  • Secondary order will now be band name instead of year when applicable.
  • Expanded suggested search alternatives to include year, country and genre pages.
  • Considerable performance improvement on search by year / country / genre / band pages.
  • Site will show Winter theme by default during winter months.
  • Dozens of minor design adjustments and improvements.
  • Searching for "band name - album name" will now return matches, although this isn't how the search engine was designed and is therefore less flexible than searching one or the other.


Bug fixes:

  • The RSS Feed is back online.
  • Fixed issue where average user rating wasn't being calculated correctly.
  • Added workaround for unsupported biography gradients in Edge and Internet Explorer.
  • Fixed caching issue where random album wouldn't refresh in Internet Explorer.
  • Fixed several design issues with Edge, Internet Explorer and Firefox.
  • Side-art on album page will only appear if there is a review and/or awards.
  • Fixed ampersand bug in several links.
  • Fixed issue when searching for incomplete album titles.
  • Fixed bug where some bands with special characters weren't included in partial searches.
  • Fixed several issues when ordering search results.
  • Fixed issue with "Back to Search Results" for single-result searches.
  • Searching for genres using normal terms ("Death Metal", "Pagan Black Metal", ...) now returns correct results.
