Steam Widget code outdated


#1

So in the first iteration of this post I seem to have found why the widget doesn’t work: Valve recently made Steam Store links more readable by putting the name of the game behing the AppID which turns

http://store.steampowered.com/app/394690/

into

http://store.steampowered.com/app/394690/Tower_Unite/

In the preview at least the text works, made posting Free Game Threads just a little bit more annoying than it needed to be.

The code/RegEx seems outdated in the way that the old URLs still work, the added game name screws it up though.

With game name:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/394690/Tower_Unite/

Old URL syntax:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/394690/

TL;DR: Until the code is updated, remove game name from URL to make Steam Widget work.

Thanks, this is good to know!
I still don’t know why it breaks, especially as it displays fine in the preview.
Besides, the fix is so simple it’s silly…
