Not sure how to get rid of that negative comment on your Message Board? Or maybe you just want to clean out all the postings and start fresh this season. As a site administrator, you have the ability to monitor or remove any offensive or questionable post or thread from your site's message board or guestbook postings. Here's how:
Removing Message Board Postings:
Click on the unwanted thread or message from your Message Board (in the upper left, you’ll notice a delete icon). Use this to delete the message.
Removing Guestbook Postings:
Go to the Guestbook folder within Admin. You should be able to see the posters nickname along with the date and time of the post.
Check the box next to the entry you wish to remove and click the "Delete Checked Entries" button at the bottom of the page.
Please remember you need to be logged in to perform any of the above mentioned functions.
Stats are important to any team. It helps with recruiting opportunities, scouting of other teams, and it’s always helpful when choosing what player will receive an award at the end of the season. Here are some easy how-to steps on showing/hiding stats on your websites.
On your PLUS site, you have the option to show or hide statistics. Sport examples include: Baseball, Softball, Basketball, Hockey, Soccer and Netball. Follow these steps when editing or adding a schedule within your Games section:
Go to your Schedules >> Games folder
Choose add/edit schedules in the upper right (for League sites only, be sure to choose this from Division)
Use the pencil icon on each schedule to show/hide different stat categories

You are getting your site ready for the season and you have misspelled a member name. Now what should you do? Not to worry, we can show you how to change it without losing all of their stats abd contact information.
First, DO NOTdelete the member otherwise you will lose all their information.
So, what should you do?
Have the member login and update their account information by clicking view/edit profile.
Here they can change their name themselves and it will immediately update on your site.
In the meantime, be sure to enter the correct spelling for the member in the Site Display Name field (when you assign them to the Roster for example or edit their account you will see this field).
It is a new year and a new sport season and we know how excited you must be to get your eteamz site in perfect working condition before you hit the field. Here are 6 helpful tips to help you add a new season in a cinch.
To add a new season (PLUS sites only):
1) Go to your Season folder
2) Click the icon for add a new season
3) Choose the season of your choice from the drop down box.
4) There is no need to delete all your previous season information. This information will remain in the pool box. If you do not see them in the pool box, simply check all the boxes next to the box and hit the search button which will automatically put them into the pool.
5) Check the name of the division, team, board member, or player and click assign. Note: You should only have to add new teams, divisions, players, etc. if they were not used anywhere last season.
6) Be sure to make your web page open to the new season by clicking on the pencil icon behind the new season, then check the box labeled to make this the current season. Other seasons will still be available from the drop down box within the admin panel and on the site.
We recommend naming your teams to help identify what division they are associated with in future seasons. For example, if you have major teams in each division, add the division name to the team name. Majors Team A for example. Then if the team moves up a division, you can reassign to the higher division and then rename the team by editing it in the Teams folder.

This is the file name you will now use when referencing images using HTML. Each image has its own link.
To view an example of how you would enter HTML, click here (posting it on the blog wasn't working).
You now have a "view full size" option on your Albums page which gives site visitors the ability to see your images larger. Go to the Albums page on your main site, select an album then an image. Here you will see "view full size" in the upper left side of the page.
You and your site visitors can now purchase photos and gifts on your Albums page. Here, you will see "photo gifts" and "buy prints" options.
In case I don't have anymore posts this year, have a fun and safe holiday!
Hi - we have a few changes going live today. Sites on customizable templates now have the ability to change Link Colors. You can do this in the Site Appearance --> Customize folder. Here, select the "General" tab. In the same area, you can now re-set your Hit Counter.
The 2010 holidays have been added. You may add to your site in the Calendar folder then selecting "add shared events."
Sites on classic templates can now add new banner, logo and background images (bug that popped up a couple weeks ago).
And last but not least, we've made it easier to assign a new head webmaster and change billing!
Next to all members in your Access --> Members folder, there is a "make head webmaster" link (when the head webmaster logs in). Previously you would only see this link next to registered admins.
Another admin can now take over billing WITHOUT the subscription expiring first. In the PLUS --> Account --> Full Details, there is a "Take over billing" link. Using this option will charge the new person upon renewal (if it's set to renew of course).
We have another release coming soon to address Albums/Images suggestions and bugs.
