I've added some more "trophies" to the list. There are now over 40 trophies to "earn"
I've made some visual changes to the forum view and thread view titles - they now correspond with their category colour and also show the category icon - purely eye-candy but it is something I wanted to try and achieve
Scroll about halfway down the settings until you see Profile Video. In the box paste in the end part of the Youtube URL (the sequence after watch?v=), select whether you want the video to autoplay or not and save your preferences.
I've been updating parts of the site over the past few days, this has included updating features, removing some features and replacing some with alternative versions.
One of the features that I've replaced is the ability to add covers to your member profile. It works in much the same way as the old one. Go to your profile page, click cover and upload an image. You can then reposition it - there are more features but I've not activated them all yet. One downside of swap add-ons is I lost some of the covers - so you may need to re-add yours or add a new one.
Another feature of this add-on is the ability to add covers to threads.
Click on the "Cover" link in the thread
Select "Modify cover image" and upload the image or copy an image URL into the "Download cover for URL" box. Then reposition it and save.
I've updated a ton of add-ons but none will look any different than before.
I'm "sharpening" up the site theme so hopefully, it looks a little more pleasing on the eye.
For a bit of fun we've installed Sportsbook and Credits add-ons.
The Sportsbook is like a virtual bookies so it will mainly cover sporting events although their will be "special" events and also some virtual events (if you were a member of General Chatter you'll know what to expect - more on that at a later date).
I've also gone ahead and added a "credits" system so you have a currency to spend in the Sportsbook.
You'll earn virtual credits for logging in, making posts, creating new threads, creating/voting in polls etc.
We decided to base the initial amount each member started with on their "trophy points" so the more active you've been in certain areas of the site the more credits you'll have available to begin with...and the more active you are, the more credits you will earn.
Credits won't be used anywhere else except the Sportsbook.
