Hello everyone,

Some new features have recently been implemented:

-Twitter feed on your profile
-Tapatalk
-User of the Month
-Top posters of the Month
-Auto-Youtube Embed
-Thanks Button


Allow me to explain how you can use these features...

For the Twitter Feed, simply click the "User CP" link on the navigation bar at the top of the forums, and select "Edit your details" on the left-side menu once you're in the CP. This places a twitter feed on your profile.

For the Tapatalk, simply visit our forums on your phones web-browser, and the forum should point you to the Tapatalk application. Our forum will be listed in the directory under "Sports" just as soon as Tapatalk management finds the time to list us.

The "User of the Month" feature will display a member either selected by the Staff, or voted upon (undecided), to be featured on our forum homepage in all of his or her's glory and triumph, so post frequently and be creative, this feature will be enabled on the first of November!

The Top posters of the Month feature has been added to the "Quick Links" link on the navigation bar. This allows you to go all the way back as far as 2005 to see who was the top poster of every month.



The Auto-Embed Youtube player automatically embeds ANY youtube link you post. No need to use the youtube button and enter the link anymore, just paste the link into the reply box, and you're set!

The Thanks Button is a new featured added that you can locate near the "Edit" and "Quote" buttons in the bottom-right hand corner of a post. By clicking it, you simply say Thank You to the person who posted. This is great for articles, or posts that you simply appreciated.

We'll keep these features rolling in, and thanks to all who have donated, exclusive contests and prizes are soon too come. :drink:

Also, another small update has been made:

Under "Quick Links" on the navigation bar at the top of the forum, you'll see a new "Top posters of the Month" link. This lists the months top posters, going all the way back to 2005.

See that? That's the Auto-Embed Youtube player. Just type the link of the video, and the video will automatically embed without needed to type it into the Youtube code box. Enjoy!

Thanks, Ricardo!

Additionally, I've added a "Thanks" button as well, just to the right of the quote and edit buttons, however, i'm experiencing some init.php errors, so I may have to remove it for time being. Can anyone test it themselves and confirm it's bringing up init.php errors?

Yep, that's it. However, did it vanish upon refresh?

So, if we're feeling good about the YouTube drag-n-drop functionality, should we get rid of the YouTube button? Maybe put the "Thanks" in its place once it is working?

I have heard that the new auto-embed mod sometimes comes up with errors, so I was sort of planning on testing multiple videos before confirming it's the new standard. I do LOVE it though.

I'm still not seeing anywhere near enough pictures of Salma Hayek on this forum, so I'm withholding judgment for now.

By the way, in case no one's figured it out (and at least one person hadn't) Nate has been the one using the SteelersFever account of late, not me. So no, I'm not losing my mind and talking to myself. :chuckle:

One must first have a mind in order to lose it. I've simply burned a hole in my skull performing all of these updates and tweaking server settings. :chuckle:
