    XenForo is the software the forums are now running on.

    As you discover things, use this thread to share with everyone.

    I'll start:
    1. You can login using your Facebook account. To set it up, go to your profile page (click your name in the menu bar in the upper right), select Facebook Integration. There you will find a way to associate this account with Facebook.

    2. Click What's New? in the top navigation menu.

    3. You can follow certain members. In your profile page, there is a People You Follow link. You can add users to follow there. Why would you do that? Add someone, then go back to your profile page and click Your News Feed. You get a Twitter-like stream of content from only the people you select.

    Here's a cool one I just found...

    Under members, click 'Recent Activity'. It basically shows all the latest posts on the site with a one-line preview of what the post says. Similar to 'What's New', but gives a little more information.

    Also, from the 'Forums' view, you can click on the little arrow after Sub-Forums to go directly to a folder of the main forum. In other words, I can go straight to the Game Scheduling sub-forum of the OMFL from the main forum listing. Very cool.

    What I found I like is you can update your status(Kinda like on XBOX Live). Just go to your name in the top right corner & its on the bottom. Now in case you have user game or if some 1 is looking for you or you are looking for some1, they can post what they are doing.

    I'll show you one even better which will take you to any forum or sub-forum without having to be back at the main forum view. On the top and bottom menu bars you click on the little down arrow - Open Quick Navigation. This gives you a pop-up from which you can choose to go anywhere on the site.

    Are the tables not working, or should we be using some different tags?

    Here's a cool thing...

    When you read a new message in any subforum, then go back to the main forum, it actually recognizes that there are no new messages in that specific subforum. With the older platform it was so hit or miss, more often the latter. The only safe bet was to mark all forums read.

    pretty nifty. I like how the quick reply works and also how you can hover over a post and it'll pull in a formated preview.

    one quick question ... is it possible to make the different sections collapsible? stinks having to wade through all the NCAA league to get to the FIFA forum :thumbsup:

    Is there a way to change the default size? It's fine on my cpu but when I log in from my iPhone it's tiny and I can't read it without expanding the screen. Also, Shaun is the only poster whose avatar is showing up for me. Everybody else just has a black box.

    1) Let me look into it.
    2) I had to delete everyone's avatar. The import added them all, but didn't update the indexer for renaming new avatars. So, when someone tried to set an avatar, it wouldn't allow it to be renamed and failed. You'll just have to set a new one.

    Great thanks.

    Also, and this is a very minor thing, when a thread gets to multiple pages, the little page # icons are really difficult to read.

    I know...all of the red on the site is linked together...I had it brighter but it looked a little out of sorts. I'll get those individually a little later today.

    can you make it so that the members online is in alphabetical order? makes it easier to stalk.

    What's up with the text balloons next to everything? I can't tell if there are unread posts and stuff in the threads...?
