PS. I've been applying some tweaks here and there to the layout. If you notice any layout glitches (or ugly formatting), try refreshing the page which should refresh your browser with the stylesheet that I've been updating.

Some new members (mainly gmail users) told me that they did not receive an activation email when they created their account. I have found the problem, corrected it and manually activated all recently created accounts and contacted the respective members.

I'm not certain how long the problem has existed so if it has affected you and you still cannot log in please send me a message.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused,
Sigmar

Note that I have moved the email server to gmail so activation emails and forgotten password emails will now come from "wfbattles" at gmail (not "noreply" at wfbattles.com)

Hi folks, I'm finally back in development mode :-)

I'm working on a forum/website signature that you can use to link to your battles archive on WFBattles.com (I should complete development by the end of next week). It will be added as a new page in your "Profile".

It will be highly customisable so that you can choose the fore colour and background (or have it as transparent), or a background cover (I'll create a few alternatives to the one below) with any of the army images from the "Add Battle" page dropdowns. You will also be able to change the font size, font type and which text to include in the signature (the WDL, win% and rank which are all automatically generated). Some forums restrict signature graphic sizes so you will also be able to change the size of the image.

The signature will link to your battles page or your profile page (your choice - see below for examples of Swordmaster's pages) and you can generate a new signature image whenever you like (eg. after adding a new battle), which will update your wins, draws, losses, win% and rank on the image or you can leave the database to generate the image for you once a day (every 24 hours) according to the custom image settings you chose.

The html (website) or BBcode (forum) script you will need to insert the signature into a forum and/or website will be shown at the foot of the page.

Here are some examples, from the very plain with only text to a bit more elaborate with an image...

[PS. many thanks to Ratlizardelfguy for coming up with the forum signature idea]

Is it possible to add the name of an opponent in the recording battle battle screen? A guy I have played before is now on here, Galafreed, and I will in the not too distant future be playing Noble Korhedron. As I'm a keen batrep writer it might be interesting to do this. I was also thinking for the purposes of leagues, if I record battles against players in the league who are registered on here as opposed to those who aren't, it might make the forum more active? Just a thought.

Hi RLEG,

I'll message you for some more details of what you had in mind.
