Default Another feature implemented... Player profile links

TJ Edit: Found a bug... No worries.. yet... read on...







Hey all...

What do Al Wilson, Chris Watton, and Josh Scobey have in common?

Beats me... But all of them have their profiles automatically linked when their full names are typed in here at the Mane...

I've spent the better part of the day working on adding this feature to the Mane, making it so that when players who are either on the Broncos roster, or are among the top in their conference in just about every measurable stat have their name typed in, it is automatically linked to the NFL.com player database, giving readers yet another frame of reference on who is being discussed...

While not every name is linked, a good number of them are...

It should be a great education tool that will come in handy for discussions around here... Just another way to make the Orange Mane posters the most knowledgable in the league...

Nice try...


There is a little bug that I just found out about that seems to affect the board... I am trying to figure out how to get it fixed, because it's a pretty serious bug...

Everyone has probably noticed that if you hold your mouse over a thread title, you get a quick summary of the thread... Apparently, this new feature affects that summary by completley screwing up the thread title on the threads screen. (don't know if that made any sense... It's late and I'm losing my bearing...

I'll figure out what to do later... In the mean time, mods, if you see a thread title jaked because of this, simply edit the post by dropping a "fixing this" at the top of the post, and then hit the enter button about 8 or so times...

Ugh...

Dammit dammit dammit...

This may not work at all... It turns out if you use the players full name in the thread title, it links to the NFL database, but not to the thread that the poster just submitted...

*augh!*

ok... I turned off the thread preview feature so the board isn't completely disrupted... At least until I figure out what to do...

Ugh... Damn I hate being the one to find the new bugs...

There's a problem though... If you use one of these names to start a thread (ie. Jake Plummer says to the media, blah blah blah), it doesn't link to the thread properly...

And if you use the name in the middle of the thread title, it links to the thread at the beginning of the line, but once it gets to the player's name in the middle of the thread, it links to the database, AND stops linking the rest of the thread...

Hopefully this is something that can be fixed...

This is another great addition to the board. I swear, Taco, you must have the strength of ten men.

No old timers in it... It's all stats leaders from this season...

I might scrap the system though, due to some unforseen incompatibilities...
