Pottermore reveals more about the Story Navigator feature

The Pottermore Insider revealed more information about the new Story Navigator that was announced a few weeks ago.

The Story Navigator is a new feature that will enable users to more easily explore the available moments on Pottermore.com. This new feature and (at least) two others will debut in the coming weeks when the final chapters of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban chapters are released.

Today Pottermore announced that the Story Navigator will also feature a “Discovery Bar” and “Moment Markers”. The Discovery Bar, the Insider post reads, will be “displayed along the bottom of each Moment thumbnail on the Story Navigator,” and will show the progress you’ve made through the Moment.

From the post:

If you’re ever worried that you have overlooked a hidden Galleon or Potions ingredient, or even that you’ve missed one of the exclusive entries by J.K. Rowling, you will now be sure whether you’ve explored each Moment in full, or whether you still have more to discover. There will be a new Discovery Bar displayed along the bottom of each Moment thumbnail on the Story Navigator, so those of you who like to leave no stone unturned will know whether you have discovered everything within that Moment or not.

As we said above, there will also be “Moment Markers”, which will be placed against the thumbnail images of the Moments to indicate where new information from J.K. Rowling can be discovered, where to listen to snippets from the digital audio books, and where a challenge awaits.

The Red Quill marker will appear on the thumbnail of each Moment that contains exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling, so you’ll never miss discovering these informative entries.

The Challenge marker lets you know that the Moment contains a challenge, such as ‘de-gnoming the garden’ or ‘recapturing the Cornish pixies’.

Make sure you have your sound turned on when you see this Speaker marker – it means a snippet from the digital audio books will be played within the Moment.

We have all this and more to look forward to in the coming weeks. You can read about the other upcoming site features by tracking our “Features and Capabilitiescategory right here. The new features will be available once the final installment of Prisoner of Azkaban is available in the coming weeks.
