ZAM's Final Fantasy XIV Site Gets a New Look

ZAM re-designs its Final Fantasy XIV site just in time for Standard Edition launch!

With Final Fantasy XIV’s standard edition set to be unleashed, ZAM is pleased to announce a Final Fantasy XIV site re-design that should make searching our expansive database and wiki easier than ever! With a cleaner, fresher front page, you'll find it easier to browse through our coverage of the game.

For a guided tour of our new features and functionality, continue reading after the break. We hope you enjoy this new look, and if you have any compliments, comments, or feedback, please let us know in the forums!

UPDATE: We've adjusted links back to their original blue color make forum viewing a more pleasant experience. We are working on an alternate, darker theme as well.

Below, you’ll notice that the front page of the site and the general menu have been altered to make navigating easier. The menu selections now dropdown, which will make finding what you need faster and simpler. News articles and stories should also be easier to read and more in line with the general style of FFXIV.

Our recipe list pages have been re-hauled to give you all the information you need with one quick glance. Gone are the cumbersome extra spots and now all you need to see for some basic information is right there. Go a level deeper and the recipe information page has all of the information that you could ever need right at a glance.

Our filtering system has also been moved and edited so that you no longer have to wade through stacks of filter options before you see the items that you need information on.

Again, please let us know your thoughts on the new design in our forums. Every piece of feedback will be read as we continue to do our best to make the FFXIV ZAM database the best place to find Eorzean information on the web.

Definately much better than the older version. I was having to continously link back and forth to get information on particular materials. Now it is not so tedious. Ty Zam!

I like the changes to the database. The icons make it much easier on the eyes in my opinion. Also the data entry looks much better.

Thanks and keep up the good work!
