First some big news for the network, we will be adding a full staff to our LSU site this week. I cannot mention names, but it's an experienced staff that will instantly give us a legitimate site in the market. We couldn't be happier and have been waiting for this for a long time. The new staff will begin at 12:00 AM on June 1st.
Second, we're getting close to getting a fix in for the green envelopes. Along with that fix is going to be a ton of other user-facing and behind the scenes fixes/additions. We're hoping to get all this out during this week.
The biggest challenge was we simplified routes from the hundreds to 10s. This will help us gear up our performance, coding efficiency and site speed a little now (and a lot more in the Winter when we take time to prep for Signing Day).
We're also making some changes to images. Allowing upload from a url now that will not force you to upload from your computer to show an animated gif. It's not the end product and by no means the finished product, but it does give us three improvements: 1. upload animated gifs from a url and they work 2. the upload from a url animated gif file size is much larger than our current 1MB from a computer 3. The image thumbnails are slightly bigger & we're putting a little PLAY icon over animated gifs to help them stand out more (eventually, they will just play without clicking, but right now this is the next step).
Coaching pages will go live. You'll be able to see videos, photos, timeline events, articles, career and who the coach is recruiting. Basically a player page for the coaches.
Our admins will get some of their tools fixed too. There are more than 35 individual fixes going into this push and none of them are tiny. We'll do the push in the midnight/early morning and then work through the push and early hours to get everything running smoothly by the time more users join us in the morning.
User rewrite is still going well and should be getting close to push in a few weeks. Thanks for your patience and support.
