Hi!
First of all, congratulations on releasing a new major version of this neat tool that is WowRoster :)
I just downloaded and installed it and after struggling to understand where the member list did go (missed the addon configuration menu at first :oops: ) I have a question : is the feature allowing to regroup characters in the member list according to their guild rank, in separate blocks, really gone??? because I thought it was a very clear way of displaying the roster. I'm not quite happy with just sorting according to rank within a single table :s
Any solutions?

Yes, it is gone

The sorting is done client side via javascript
Since we use that, we cannot divide the list into separate boxes

There is a server sorting option in memberslist, but it sorts the same way
If you can convince PleegWat, he might put in separate boxes again

There isn't really a simple way, which is one of the reasons I removed it in the first place.

Guess I could look at re-adding it in server sorting mode. It definitely can't be done in clientside sorting mode.

well if it's really too much work don't bother... guess client side sorting was introduced for better performance also?
anyways thanks for taking the time to respond ;)
(and thanks again for the new roster to all devs, good job on this one ;) )

clientside sorting improves server performance, at the cost of client performance. A more important reason is that client side sorting allows multiple sort conditions, and filtering.

Great job on the new roster!!

I want to put my hand up for people wanting this feature back in. I keep my roster set to server side sorting anyways. Our guild really liked the separation the blocks gave.

Again, great job and thank you very much for your time.

Can I 2nd that ?

I would deff keep it on server side sorting, but having the option to separate our guild ranks made it easy for us to distinguish our ranks and have quick overview. I'm happy we finally took that leap and upgraded our site / rosters to the latest.

Good news: I've removed client-side sorting for 2.1, since it was hard to maintain across browsers, and I got performance complaints.

Instead, I've implemented serverside multisort and filtering. I'll get separators back in when I've got time.

Don't go to fast, I just put the champagne in the fridge, it needs to get cold before you roll this one out.

And I throw in a new concept for this site : The Bounty :cheers:

Pleegwat, If you manage to keep the actual layout, and add the "separated grade layout" as i.e. a template (is this possible ?) then I'll run to Paypal for a $50 donation to WoWRoster.

It would be a real nice thing to have the 2.0.1 and 1.7.3 member list look at user's choice.

(My reason - I've got the best position in a Guild right now, the second one on the member list - only fools want to be a GM :rofl: )

My Is this ok with the site-politics over here ?

Well, between planning and feasibility there's a shitload of space. It's gonna be a real jewel, if I ever find the time to finish it.

Guess that makes me what ? The Fool ? * Grin *
I've done the sorting by guildrank and made me the same rank as the officers. Looking forward to having that sorting back. Thnx again.
