Release notes for install 22nd November

The following detail the changes made to all LeagueRepublic sites Tuesday 24th November 2009. The changes apply to all FREE sites and to sites where advertising has been removed.

The new header contains drop downs for the different seasons / divisions and competitions so that they can be accessed from any page.

The header can be made up of an uploaded logo and a choice of background images on the right hand side or from flash overlaying your text onto the background images.

To change your header go to [Site Builder --> Look and Feel]

You can also add a slogan within the dynamic header where you could add a sponsor message or your latest news.

To change the site colour and background visit [Site Builder --> Look and Feel]. There are 16 colours to choose from.

Both the site builder menu and the league menu are shown on every page, the site builder menu in the header and the league menu in the right hand sidebar.

The site builder menu is shown only when you have created your home page in site builder.

To make a site builder page your home page then go to [Site Builder --> Site Settings]

You can upload their own sponsor adverts and they will be shown on every page in the right hand sidebar. The images will click through to the sponsor websites.

To load your own sponsors then go to [Site Builder --> Sponsor Adverts]

A new code snippet is available for the league pages to be framed within external sites. Any of the standard league pages can be included within your own websites, you won't be able to include site builder pages.

To get the new code snippets click on the code snippets link on your site's home page.

All pages have been improved. Worth mentioning are
- Fixture Grid having vertical text for the team names
- New look display competition page
- Result Results / Fixtures and Postponed tabs on division home
- Page displaying all division tables/standings
- new layout for photo albums
- display team page had been broken down into three pages.

All site builder pages must now only have two columns. In addition we have changes the editor to not allow you to select Font sizes and Fonts. Use the predefined styles e.g. H1, H2, H3 etc. This changes were required to make sites more attractive to advertisers.

For those leagues recording game type stats i.e. wins / losses: you will now be able to rank your players on wins rather than on winning percentage. To make this change visit [Admin Home --> League Setup Wizard --> Stat Setup]

The player registration option will now automatically appear in the right hand side sidebar if you have player registration enabled for the public in [Admin Home --> League Setup Wizard --> League Options]

You now have the option to decide whether to show the email subscription option in the right hand side league menu. Enable it within [Admin Home --> League Setup Wizard --> League Options]

If you need to change any of the words on your home pages then visit [Site Builder --> Terminology]. Many have the words on the pages have been changed.
