Organization and Leagues – Team Enhancements

We recently completed a few enhancements for teams within a league or organization that should help improve the look of your site.

Player pictures default to the team logo if there isn’t one.

Now when players in your league or organization don’t have individual photos their profile will default to the team logo.  Same with stat and record book pages, all players without a photo will display the team logo instead.

Organization and League schedules in the admin now only show league-wide events by default

Some leagues and organizations had a lot of events on their schedule and loading all of those events on the schedule when in the admin took a long time.  We’ve made a change so that only league and organization wide events and games will display on the schedule by default.  This will allow the schedule page to load much more quickly.  To view games and events for individual teams just go to that team’s schedule.

Teams now have social media options

We’ve added social media to each team under leagues and organizations.  When adding information about a team you can specify their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram links.  The social media icons display on the team header for the team pages.

It also displays on the league/organization listing of all teams.

Twitter Widget Available Again

As of this morning, the Twitter widget should be working again.  We defaulted existing Twitter feeds to more or less match what you had before but you now have the ability through Twitter to customize your feed even further if you like.

To customize your feed in Twitter go to https://twitter.com/settings/widgets to create or modify a widget.  It is also under Settings -> Widgets in Twitter after logging in.

Please let us know if you are having an issue with your new Twitter widget or any questions on how to customize it further by submitting a support ticket or leaving a comment below.

Twitter Widget currently unavailable

The Twitter social media widget available to put on your team, league, or organization website is currently unavailable.  Twitter has retired their old API for displaying tweets on a website and we are working on integrating their new API into Atomic Leagues.  Hopefully this will be ready in the next few days, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Twitter Feed Widget now available!

We are happy to announce that there is a new Twitter Feed available to add to your home pages.  Special thanks to Matt from the St. Louis Park Town Team for suggesting it.

Adding the widget is easy, just go to Website Appearance -> Widgets after logging in.

Then click Add Home Page Widget and select Twitter Feed.

Enter the Twitter username you want to show a feed for, click Save, and you are done!

The Twitter feed for the username you entered now will display on your home page.

Hopefully this a widget that you can make use of.  If there are other widgets you would like to see added or if you have any suggestions or feedback, please leave a comment below or submit a support ticket.

Social Media Widget Available for Home Page

You can now add a social media widget to your home page to allow your fans to follow you on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

To add the widget just go to website appearance -> widgets, add a home page widget and select social media as the type of widget.

Enter the caption that you want to display, the url of the social media page, and icon of the social media provider.

That’s it, the widget will now display on your home page directing visitors to your site to the page you specified!

Right now you can pick from Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ but we can easily add other social media providers if there is another you would like to use.  Just let me know in the comments sections below or fill out a support request form.

Automatically Post News to Twitter

We are excited to announce that now whenever you write a news article you can have it automatically posted to your Twitter account as well.  In the first social media integration for Atomic Leagues (look for an announcement on Facebook in the coming weeks), this should make it even easier to communicate with your players, fans, and media.

Setting Twitter up within Atomic Leagues is easy and should only take a minute or two.  Just go to communication -> social media after logging in and then click on the link to enable Twitter.

This will take you to your Twitter account where you can authorize Atomic Leagues to post tweets on your behalf.

Now whenever you write a news article you will have the option of also posting it to Twitter in addition to your team website.  Just keep the box checked and you are ready to go!

Soon you will also be able to easily post game scores, schedule changes, and messages to Twitter as well.

If you have questions or comments about Atomic Leagues and Twitter, we would love to hear them! Please post a comment below or let us know through the support form.

Share, Print, and Email any Team Page!

Your fans and players can now share, print, or email any page on your team website.  Each page has been enhanced to include sharing buttons on the title line to easily allow visitors to share your site with others.  This means that your pages can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, through email, and many other websites with the click of a button.

This has the potential to vastly increase the number of visitors to your team site as your pages get shared with friends and family and they pass it on to others.
