You've finally got yourself a new template and are excited to show it off to the team but your counter isn't updating and you see how many people have been visiting your site! It's annoying...we know. Here's what you can do to ensure it tracks your visitors!
We believe the handy-dandy "pop-up blocker" is at fault for this. Simply disable this on your end and you'll find it's working again.
Another way to tell if this is the problem is if you can't see your "pop up announcement" displaying and you've enabled it in your "PLUS/preference" folder.
While we are in the process of resolving this for you, here is a tip to workaround it in the mean time. It’s easy and only takes a few clicks of the mouse.
From one of our new, customizable templates,
1) Go to the Customize section within your Site Appearance folder
2) Select the “Content” tab at the top of the page
3) Select any color for the Title Color other than white or black. This also changes your sponsor and location title colors to the selected color but it forces the calendar upcoming/past games and events on home page text back to white so that it remains viewable.
Who doesn't want the coolest website in town? Now you can with our custom border option on the customizable templates, allowing you to add a border around your main site content with either color or an image.
To do so, navigate to the Customize section of your Site Appearance folder in Admin.
1) Select the Border tab at the top of the page.
2) Select either an image and/or border color.
Why select an image?
Selecting an image gives you the option to choose where it displays on your page or as repeating. Checking the "repeat" option as "both" allows you to encompass the entire border with an image.
What if I want both - a color AND an image?
No problem! If you select both a color and add an image, be sure the image can be seen with your selected border color.
Here's a site that selected a border color to display with the same color as their background.

We know you don't have a lot of spare time as a coach, team parent or site admin so we've made it easy for you to access your current contacts AND add new contact email addresses from other sources to your SmartMessage Center.
Follow these simple steps to add email contacts to select which addresses you want to receive any of your messages:
1) Select the template you wish to use from the SmartMessage Composer or click on the "New SmartMessage" orange button
2) At the top in the "To" entry field, you can simply type or paste email addresses (which are automatically added to your contacts) or click on the "To" button to access your existing list or add new ones
3) Expand or contract any part of your contact groups by clicking on the "plus" or "minus" signs
4) Select an entire group by checking the box next to it or select individual addresses checking the box next to each address
5) Finish by clicking on "Save" and then "Ok" and your groups/addresses will display in the "To" address field portion of the template. You can mix and match any number of groups or manually entered addresses
To add new Circles/Groups to your contacts, follow these three steps after completing Step #4 above:
1) You can also add new contacts by clicking on "Add Contacts", then enter the email addresses in the text box or click on "Add contact from your address book" to dynamically pull them in from Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail or AOL
2) Once you've added them to the message, you can also select which "Group" or "Circle" within your address directory that you'd like the emails to belong to (or leave it blank).
3) Finally, you can easily link to all of your addresses in AOL, AIM or Yahoo! Instant Messenger by going within SmartMessage Center to "My Account" and then "Channels"
We wanted to let you know about a few changes regarding our partnership with Shutterfly. After a successful three years, our integrated partnership with Shutterfly has ended. We appreciate the quality service they have provided to eteamz customers and enjoyed having them as part of the team. Due to this change, you'll no longer be able to upload photos directly to your Shutterfly account from within eteamz. You can, however, continue to upload pictures directly onto eteamz through the Albumz folder in the site admin tool. There is no need to worry about your existing Shutterfly albumz; your photos will still be displayed on your eteamz site and still located on the Shutterfly service.
So how do you get started with the new eteamz Albumz when it launches? That's the best news yet! There's nothing special for you to do - we'll do all the work for you! All your eteamz Albumz will automatically be transferred to our new eteamz Albumz and links to your existing Shutterfly Albumz will still be available on your eteamz site for as long as you keep those photos on the Shutterfly service.
Please feel free to contact eteamz support if you have any questions and thank you for being an eteamz customer and allowing us to share in your active lifestyle.
