Suddenly the HTML Team Name (external link) is non-functional. Neither HTML link code or BBCode works for this function. Will this be temporary or is it a bug in the change over.

HTML Team Name-ext link non-functional

Actually it was considered a bug to allow html in team name.
Security issues I think.

Most of the teams simply wish

Most of the teams simply wish to display their logo instead of just a team name. That's not really much to ask for considering the voluntary effort on the part of the team members. The alternative could be local storage of the name with logo on the Einstein Server in a simular fasheon to loading your avator.

There were a few changes to

Message 18185 in response to message 18184

There were a few changes to the teampage code recently. One of them had to do with correcting the display of the title (and team name) on the teampages; and while correcting the title, the teamname was accidentally removed.

This has (hopefully) been fixed and the changes will be visible soon.

The plan is to change to BBCode at some point, however no exact changeover date has been determined yet. At that point the text will probably be automatically converted to the new format.

Thanks, Janus, I thought

Thanks, Janus, I thought something was in the works. I have BBCode sitting in the html title area and it works on some of the 3rd party sites.
