Posted by SueTLC

Slight changes are afoot at, the official website of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. Thanks to longtime reader Bel, we know that the title of her diary has been changed to “Everything you might want to Know,” along with new books in the link section and a few changes of the links. As readers will recall, its been quite some time since the website has been update, so we do not know if more changes are planned, stay tuned!

Thanks Bel!

I must say...Jo has one of the best websites I have ever seen as far as author sites go.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: cool. its about time. i love her site but it got really boring because it stayed the same for so long.Avatar Imageshellscotie says: Scottish book!!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Yeah her site hasn't been touched in a LONG time... so I'm hoping that it gets update more often now. :)Avatar ImageFresca says: Oh, I hope this means that the Scottish Book is underway! Thanks for the info, Leaky.Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: I'm trying not to gat my hopes up for the Scottish Book, but something probably IS going to happen if the site is being updated. Perhaps a new piece, non-Potter related?Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I wonder if this means that updates will stop? I hope not. I love her site, and I visit every day waiting for changes. Avatar ImageBad-Muggle says: Good to know that they are doing something with the site. Hopefully we'll get more info and tidbits soon. Avatar ImageParthenonlover2757 says: I have to check it out!Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: oh cool i checked just the other day but everything was just the same.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: i hope she puts up new things Avatar ImageMikaMaxwell says: Yes, let's hope more substantial updates are next!Avatar Imageizziewitch says: (wierd, I keep getting logged out) What I had tried to post before was: Ooh, there's a largish book on the shelf (in Links) with no title but a question mark. Don't remember if it was there before.Avatar Imagecghambright says: Awesome! I love her site whether she updates it or not. I really hope this recent update means she's getting ready to release a new book. Probably wishful thinking.... :DAvatar Imagecghambright says: This is going to drive me crazy...I feel like she's added some kind of hint or clue or something! *pulls hair out!*Avatar Imagenewwmoon says: Feels like first time in years now ^^Avatar Imagecghambright says: There are TWO books in the links section called "The Wizards book" by JK Rowling. Have those always been there?!!? Avatar Imageroonwit says: cghambright: No, I am pretty sure those books are new. Perhaps they are a reference to the Scottish Book.Avatar Imagecghambright says: OMG!! If you click on the eraser and use the time turner to go to TODAY's date the DO NOT DISTURB SIGN IS ON THE DOOR!!! I have a feeling I'm just freaking out over nothing but still!Avatar Imageroonwit says: cghambright: Actually, now I check, those book have been there for a while so they aren't new..Avatar ImageLP Dantas says: This excites me a bit. Hopefully this means she'll need to use the site in a few months - to announce her new book, maybe? I don't think Jo is the kind of person that would have a blog or even a Twitter. But I do miss hearing from her.Avatar Imageroonwit says: cghambright: I think you have been able to get the Do Not Disturb sign in that way for quite some time.Avatar Imagecghambright says: Okay. lol. Let me calm down....Avatar Imagecghambright says: I think the new book that Sue mentioned is the link to her trust website. Volant. Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I hope that she updates her website with something more substantial in the near future. It has been ages since she last updated it.Avatar Imagecghambright says: Okay someone tell me if it always does this: If you stay in the links section for a long time a piece of parchment with a lightening bolt pops up on the left side of the screen where that picture with birds is? Has always done that?!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: Great, I love it! I wish we'd get some updates though... I miss them =( Avatar Imageroonwit says: cghambright: The Volant book has been there a while as well. The new books are Classics like Robinson Crusoe. Also the lightning bolt relates to some hidden content, obtainable via actions elsewhere on the site.Avatar Imagehrslvr529 says: SWEET!Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: What did the title of the diary say before this change? It's been a while since I visited the site and it seems to have slipped my mind.. * embarrassed *Avatar Imageroonwit says: The Diary title was "Diary". It was from December 2007 talking about the (then) 4 months since DH came out.Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Yay! I love JKR's site, and I'm so excited there is fresh content!!! WOOT.Avatar Imagecghambright says: I just want her to write a new book! I don't care if it's The Scottish Book or something entirely new. :(Avatar Imagethundermountain7 says: in you turn the time thing at the bottom right of the ? page to 19/08/09 the do not disturb sig. is on. how do you get through ?Avatar Imagetinagin says: I'm intrigued by a notable deletion from her links page. The link to the Children's High Level Group is gone. This is the charity she chose for the proceeds from Beetle to go to. Avatar Imageroonwit says: thundermountain7*Roar*: You can't get past the do not disturb sign. That has always been the indication that the door was locked. tinagin [ROAR]!: But it is now in the "Everything you might want to know" section, so I think she just decided that the charity links worked better there.Avatar Imagetinagin says: Ahhh, now I see. Thanks!Avatar Imagetinagin says: con't, I did not realize there were multiple pages there.Avatar ImageLinnyish says: I would love to hear from Jo. About anything really, what colour shoes she's wearing today, what she had for lunch, her favourite kind of weather.. I miss the days when she used to have little secrets to tell us about the next book. Really hope she updates her site!Avatar ImageDawna says: Nice! I love playing around on her site, but there hasnt been anything new in a while. I'll check it out tonight!Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: I will have to check that out!Avatar ImageBlatcher914 says: I am so glad there are updates as I am assuming that means she is still on the site every so often and it hasn't been forgoten, I really hope this means more updates in all areas.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: yay, i'll have to check it out! :)Avatar ImageC_B_Mia says: finnaly... its been a while but thanks!Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: cool :]Avatar ImageWitch Princess says: Regarding the DO NOT DISTURB sign: If you make the time turner go to the date you are there the sign is always there. I discovered it about six months ago. Also what is with the book with the question mark? I really hope the changes mean something new is going to happen!!!!!!!Avatar Imagecghambright says: The book with the QUESTION MARK...if you slide it to the left...there's a key behind it. It's been there for awhile. Avatar ImageLunaLupinTonks says: is this a secret way of showing that the scottish book is close to coming out?Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: What's interesting is that there are 6 more tabs (total of 7, wink wink) that are unclickable...hmmm...Avatar ImageAlbus Marcos Dumbledore says: cool Avatar Imagegoodegogo says: she needs to update it more!Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: Will give her site a try again but use another site to get help on writting. She give's great advice. Thanks JOAvatar Imageethelnorthbrook says: I wonder though if the change means that there will be no more actual 'DIARY' updates on the website if it is in its place...I loved those Diary Updates...Avatar ImageTriantha says: Those tabs aren't clickable but you can still turn the pages. Just click the arrows on the bottom of the page to get to the tabs. I don't know if it's been this way for awhile now. But you can redraw the scar again on the paper.Avatar Imageweasleymyking says: oh I've never been on this website! what is it?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next...Avatar ImageKayJay123 says: Oooh I'll have to take look. Thanks!Avatar Imagebecmajec says: cool! it's always annoyed me though how i couldn't open the site in a new tab haha. Avatar Imagechaos35 says: I really, really, really hope that there will be more updates.. Say, like JK saying that her 'Scottish Book' is finished.. haha.. I'm dreaming.. I hope she adds more stuff in the Extra Stuff section though.. Or maybe the polls.. that would be great..Avatar Imagealegria35 says: About time. Thought she forgot that she has a website that needs to be updated.Avatar Imagealegria35 says: The information are all awesome. I can't get enough of all HP/JKR info. (I'm beginning to believe I'm a Imageevannaa says: Yay! :) I hope there will be more changes.. *goes to look at the changes*Avatar ImagePrincess Leia says: I like the new section on her site! Regarding a new release: I have figured that they'd want to release The Scottish Book around Christmas (like they did with Beedle), but I thought this Christmas would be too soon... Although, it would coincide with HP6 for DVD, and the themepark opening... I imagine all that extra press would be great for it... Well, regardless of what they are doing, I am hoping it's this year!Avatar ImageGanduean-Vampiress says: i have some checking to doAvatar Imagemjkalldaway says: JKR has a great site hope she makes more updatesAvatar ImageLumosSempra says: Well this is great news! I wonder if she's ever going to put up the answers for the W.O.M.B.A.T.s since the test is no longer available.Avatar ImageLumosSempra says: Princess Leia.. I highly doubt it will be any time soon. In her interview on PotterCast she said she was taking her time with the Scottish book.Avatar ImageAsta says: i love the changes!Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: Awesome! Can't wait to go see the updated site!Avatar ImageBritski says: I hope she updates a new book coming out soon! hahaAvatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Please don't shoot me for asking this...but what is the Scottish Book? Something Potter-related?Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: It's been a whiles since I last visited her website so it will be neat to go see the new changes and updates :)Avatar Imagebookgirl3000 says: wow, i love the sites new colors, it sems more like jk rowling than her previous one!Avatar Imageharrygetsme says: I'll have to take a look then :) I wish she would update more often!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: I've been waiting forever for her to update her website!! *off to check it out . . .Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: So, I went to the website and clicked on the pen in the rubbish bin. What does the message mean? And has it always been there?Avatar Imageroonwit says: LumosSempra: You can still do the WOMBATs via the time turner on the "?" page. -MischiefManaged-: See the FAQ entry jeannemclROAR: It hasn't always been there - I think the original version didn't have it - but it has been there a long time.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum :)Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: So glad it's been updated! I've been checking every so often... ErinAvatar ImagePhylis says: Great.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: i like that site, it's cute, especially after seeing "a year in the life" and saw that her desk really was all full of gum wrappers! lolAvatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: *@roonwit* Thanks for that :) I figured it might be the Encyclopedia but wasn't sure about it.Avatar ImageCatherine says: wow! awesome Jo! it has been FOREVER since there have been changes, and about 1 1/2 months since we've herd about Jo, yeah, now im confident she's still out there, relaxing (somehow) at home, typing away on her computer and making changes to her site!Avatar ImageCatherine says: hey roonwit how do you get to the WOMBATS? i hit the time turner but it just switched the scenery in the window!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Yay, it's been so long !

Each door opening is different and many of them require you to do something to get the door open or to get to whatever is concealed being it.Avatar ImageCatherine says: roonwit: yeah, i've figured that out. um, do you remeber what date the wombats were on? Avatar ImageCatherine says: the dates i'm having trouble with are 13/06/07, 21/12/06, the breaking of the mirror 31/3/06, 31/10/04, which is shamingly, like half of them!Avatar ImageCatherine says: roonwit! i so figured it all out!!! thanks for all your help!Avatar ImageKiralay says: At last! Wonderful...Avatar ImageMrs.Brisby says: I wish she would give us a proper update. :( I love her site. . . I miss the updates. Hopefully she's too busy writing to update. . . .

Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Oh cool! Here's hoping more updates are planned!! :DAvatar ImageNuttyAsSP says: A list of books published is on the text version of the site.
