View Full Version : New Feature * PERSONAL PAGE

Starting today members now have their very own little place on The Bench.

You can express whatever you want on it, be it a wantlist/tradelist. Treat it as a blog. It's in your hands!!!! Just keep in mind it must comply with the sites rules. No profanity or inappropriate images or you will lose your privileges.

This feature is open to all HOF members.

To view members pages

Nav bar -> User Pages

To start your page

Usercp -> Settings -> Created/Edit User Page


If anyone encounters a bug, please report it via the help desk.


UPDATE
You can go ahead and create your page. The link in the nav bar only shows the top 20 pages by pageview. My intention is to add a direct link in your profile (box to the left that has your join date, location etc.)

User Pages are working, and database will not need to be deleted again. So you can input whatever you wish.

And as I said above, It's now open to anyone that is beyond a "newbie avatar"


UPDATE #2
Links to user pages have been added to a members profile.

<a href="http://s71.photobucket.com/albums/i142/champs96ws/?action=view&amp;current=profile.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i142/champs96ws/profile.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

and in posts

<a href="http://s71.photobucket.com/albums/i142/champs96ws/?action=view&amp;current=post.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i142/champs96ws/post.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Only issue is that both show up even if the members doesn't have a page and I need to create a new button as I'm using the www button and now some people will show 2 like mine is.

Anyone good with photoshop :)


Thanks and enjoy.
Peter

Amazing! If you are active in this hobby, and aren't a member of The Bench, you NEED to be! There is not another site out there like this one!

Thanks

Nice addition champs!

Everyone please remember that information/text within the user pages needs to follow th base rules of The Bench as far as Staying family friendly and all ages appropriate.

However this is an area of The Bench where you would be allowed to use sports related banners, which we do not allow you to use in your signature ( see champs96ws user page for example)

Not seeing it on my "Settings" in my Nav bar. I logged off, and it still looks like it did yesterday.

Same here. Only see the "User Pages" link on the nav bar, but no edit link in the User CP settings.

Thanks for the new addition!

Thanks for doing this guys. I find it very useful to create a list of my non-autograph cards for trade. Should I be able to see my own page when I go to "User Pages" ? I just created my page but I don't see my name on the list when I go to User Pages. Just want to make sure that other people can see it. Thanks.

Are you able to see your own page when you go to "User Pages"?

I created my page earlier today, but don't see it when I go to User Pages.

Thanks Bubby.

Mods: Created my User Page earlier this morning, but it is not coming up. I can see it and modify it when I access it through my User CP. And yes, I do save it after all the editing.

Is there a certain amount of time it takes for the server to see your page? I looked and don't see yours. As a point of reference, I just created a user page now, so we will see how long it takes until mine shows up as well. I would suppose if it doesn't show within 24 hours a help desk ticket should be opened. Thanks for adding this feature to the site!

Thanks for your input. I'm in no rush to see it, but want to make sure I haven't done anything wrong while trying to publish it.

I created a page aswell, when I go to user pages I only see 5 members names, most if not all are MODS. Mine, nor anyone else who has mentioned issues in this threads pages show up.

Ok, I had to wipe out the database and start over. Please create a page but for now just keep it to a few lines of text, just for testing.

I don't want to waste people's time just in case I have to redo it all again.


And I opened it to all registered members that are past the "new member avatar"

Images are fine, they just have to be hosted somewhere else. Similar to the forum rules.

For people tired of freewebs etc, you can post your lists on your personal page and use it as your "webiste". That's one less site to have to log into to edit. Everything is right here.

Also for those that keep lists on a thread, your better off using this feature. If the thread goes inactive and is archived you could lose your info, with the personal page that will not happen (but always keep a backup).

How do you view other people's user pages? I can only get to the top 20 and I know there are more out there.

Pete,
Are the SA's included in this? I don't seem to have any access and when I try to pull up the User Pages in the Nav Bar above I get this:


lprimus, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Champs96ws
10-29-2011, 04:00 PM
I forgot to give the SA group access. I'll make that change when i get home.

Jason, you are all set.

I also gave guests/no members access to view. This way if you use the page as your website and share the link on another site non Bench members can still view it.

Is is possible, and if so how difficult would it be to create a search function within the pages?

I am recreating my lost autograph card trade list there and I have listed current teams, all teams played for, card make, brand and year. It would be nice that if we all started to build want and trade lists on these pages, that they'd have an easy search function within.

I know there is a function key way to search text lists, but don't know it off the top of my head, but something easier would make these pages all that more user friendly.

mrmopar - We've been doomed to use the crtl-F key for years now. Don't know if they can make it better.

champ - thanks for making the user pages more visible!

mrmopar
10-29-2011, 07:02 PM
The search in the main page blue bar seems to work for searching threads fine, but these pages are not threads. I moved all my buy/sell/trade threads into my page, so maybe I'll just note the need to use control F to search if nothing better comes along.

Some members pages might get long, but a search function within the page is not easily done. Your best bet and something I use all the time is CTRL-F as mentioned by Jason.

Hey David,

Do you have a photobucket? If not, you will need one (or a similar page such as Picasa) to host your images. After you get that done then you can post images on here or your personal page.

It hasn't required HOF status for quite a long time.

You can go to your USER CP and "edit your userpage" to modify it.

Regarding your HOF status, the computer will process it at some point in the next day or two.
