    I get that. But doesn't vbul have an option to list total count/quantity (like Envision) of likes, instead of just the bar.

      That I'll have to look into.

        I googled. Maybe vbul is simply limited. I saw a lot of complaints around the like/reps. Seems they diminish the need.

        • Just a heads up but ads are being implemented. It might take a bit to iron out the types of ads we are receiving.

          However, I would ask that all of you who have supported the new site continue to do so and consider whitelisting us with your adblocker!

          • Something I've noticed is that on the old platform if I signed in and let's say there were 10 threads with new activity since my last sign in. I only read 6 that were of interest to me and leave the site. If I came back later that night, all 10 would be shown as read, i.e. no longer highlighted.

            Now I've realized those stay highlighted for eternity .

              Isn’t that a positive?

                Guess depends on ur preference. I don't need the everything soccer thread showing me I haven't read it from February when I never plan to.

                It was nice seeing something like that as read the next time I was on.

                • Did yall change the PM/mail limit?
                  Also, noticed that historical donations/gifts were all in my inbox

                  tip to anyone who has the same issue... use select all, and only one page at a time. if you try to select items on multiple pages, it will only delete the page you are on.

                      had some server errors but when the site is accessible it runs fine for me

                        Yeah it's been hit or miss for about a week. It seems to do with traffic levels which, when they get to a certain point, use up too much of the CPU of the server. So the database expert who got the site to stable initially is looking into different ways to fix this, including possibly upgrading the server.

                          I don't know if they changed anything, but it used to take 5-10 seconds for me to get to my notifications (Could be because I've got like 2000 subscriptions). I'm back on after being offline a few weeks from a move and the Notifications page seem to be coming up quickly.

                          • One of the most recent changes people might notice is a shortened front page list and that the "home page" is the forums page. Clash made these moves after discovering that the large search done by the front page particularly in peak traffic hours was sometimes putting an unnecessary strain on the servers cpu. The issue is seemingly just because vbulletin's built in search feature is...not great. We'll look into adding and using a different search engine, but for the time being this seems to have helped some.

                            We also have been slowly pruning and getting rid of old files and data on the server and it seems that may be helping as well.

                            If anyone notices any issues, again, just let us know and we will always try to improve the site or fix the issue.

                                No changes that I've made, I got a text about 15 minutes ago that it was down, when I saw that and logged on it was back up. I will look at logs and see if there was anything going on.

                                      I personally haven't been using it since the move. Clash uploaded the site to it again, I believe.

                                        • Hey everyone, I added a few more options that will make sharing/posting a little easier, most notably for recruiting profiles. There are now easy ways to embed a player's 247 profile as well as embed hudl videos. Below are some basic instructions that will hopefully explain how these work. There are also Twitter (which has been up for a while) and Instagram embedding options as well as a spoiler tag that SPOILERBeauBenken added today. If you have any questions on how these work, please don't hesitate to ask.

                                          • 247 Profile embedding

                                            Simply click the 247 Sports icon in the Advanced Editor tool bar () and paste the full link to the profile in between the brackets. Be sure there are no extra spaces on either side of the url.

                                              Click the Hudl icon in the Advanced Editor tool bar () and paste only the video ID from the url, so everything after the "video/", between the brackets. Be sure there are no extra spaces on either side of the ID.

                                                It's easier to cut/paste the link first, then left click - highlight the link, then hit the corresponding button in the tool bar which perfectly wraps the link.

                                                So when do we find out what the red eye reduction / spoiler button's for??????

                                                  Yes, good point. That method works as well and is probably a more sure fire way to not get the extra spaces. Hopefully everyone can figure that out without further instruction.

                                                      Ha, Rivals may be a few days, I have golf leagues the next 2 nights and then an outing this weekend. Youtube links work with the general "Insert Video" option. I'll have to see if ISD's are an option so we can continue throwing clicks Freeman's way.

Holy shit the site is almost fully back to normal lol... we should trash all the other ones (except dark mode) or find a way to make this the default because the other theme doesn't work for the commit section on the right side.

Speaking of which, is.there gonna be a new Varsity/VIP for those that donate? I donated to the new fund a few months back and gladly will again to avoid ads.
