Incorrect Values[edit]

The page is not updating the weekly cycles and only shows week 1's average profit --66.90.233.239 08:06, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

The page is appearing fine for me. You often need to purge the wiki cache when the timer flips over - you can do this most easily by clicking on the clock, which leads to the following URL: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/index.php?title=Map_bonus_reward/profit&action=purge -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:36, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Suggestion: I don't know if this is doable, but sort this page by max profit. Since people who come here are most likely looking for the most profitable maps, I would guess the first thing they look for is which map has the highest profit. NerdDefender (talk) 02:00, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

It's not as is, the javascript is parsed after any wikicode. Alex would need to push the vendor information out to javascript and use the query API. It would have saved him time over creating a convoluted solution he has right now too.--Relyk ~ talk < 02:23, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

The new format has taken away functionality[edit]

This page used to be useful in showing what the rewards were, not just what the value of the rewards are. Please revert to the prior format.

You can click the map tab and it'll collapse, showing the exact items awarded. —Ventriloquist 11:37, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

When I click on the link, I am shown the rewards for a second or less, then I am redirected to the general wiki page for the map in question. That is clearly not the purpose of this page, and it was usable in it's prior format. Now it has lost Important functionality Vogon Poet (talk) 11:46, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Don't click on the map's name, click on the empty space in between the total value and the name of the map, and it should collapse without redirecting you anywhere. —Ventriloquist 11:50, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
Click on anything that isn't a link. I guess I could remove the map link names. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 11:51, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, now it is useful. I did not think to click in the "empty" space (kinda not intuitive imo, but now I know). Vogon Poet (talk) 12:21, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Just to confuse you further, I've changed the double click thing to a single click. By the way, if you think of any improvements to the usage instructions at the top, feel free to edit them. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:46, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Links are very awkward[edit]

Every map mentioned has a short 5 item list which is great. However, the same click that opens the 5-item list, also activates a page link which is incredibly frustrating, because I can't read the list. Please either remove the links, or cause the link to open in a separate window, so people can read the item lists.

Click on the background, not the text or the icon. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:11, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit]

I hope someone can do this as I have NO clue how. It would be lovely to be able to put the gold values of the rewards each week in ascending and descending order (and maybe again in alphabetical order) as we can with certain other values elsewhere on the wiki. That way we can easily see the most and least profitable areas each week in order at a click of a mouse button. The reason is obvious, because people want to make profit. Manually calculating which ones are most profitible is not a hard task, but why not make it easier? — Mythical moa (talk) 04:46, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

It already is in descending order of profit --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 05:48, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi Mythical moa. As Gimmethegepgun says its already sorted by profit. I agree that we could add some code to sort it by zone name - then we'd need to also add a button to sort by price to restore the original sort order. I'd have to add a set of controls to do this.
    // Sort each element by the total value
    $('.weekcontainer').each(function() {
        jQuery('.moreinfo',this).sort(function (a, b) {
           return $(b).attr('data-sort-value') - $(a).attr('data-sort-value');
        }).appendTo(this);
    });
    // Sort each element by the zone name
    $('.weekcontainer').each(function() {
        jQuery('.moreinfo',this).sort(function (a, b) {
           return $(a).attr('data-zone') > $(b).attr('data-zone');
        }).appendTo(this);
    });
I can look into adding two buttons beneath the data later when I get back from work. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 06:40, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
How's that? -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:30, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Missing Highlighting and Click to Expand[edit]

Unless it's just something up with Chrome all of a sudden, the current week's header "Week #" is no longer being highlighted (highlighting used to be in yellow, IIRC) and it's the only Week header that can't be clicked on to expand all the zone info blocks below it. I have no expertise here, but as I can't imagine this is intended this should probably be corrected. Kruhljak (talk)

Thank you for the heads up on it not working anymore. I went ahead and fixed it, so it should work again now.
As far as i can tell there are some styling changes, which are probably trying to achieve some uncommunicated goal, going on at the moment. They happen to have affected this widget too. In this case instead of adding a class to another class already associated with the element representing the current week, it happened to replace the already existing class instead; preventing the element from being selected by it and hence not adding the expand/collapse functionallity to the current week. And you're recalling correctly. The hilighting was indeed yellow. With the restyling going on at the moment the new hilighting seems to be bold; that is the bold heading (currently Week 6) is currently the current/hilighted one.
