    Just wanted to give you guys a heads up on a couple of new features that we got installed on the forums yesterday.

    To begin, you can now sign into CF using your Facebook or Twitter account. We are fully integrated with those social media platforms. If you go to your profile, it should be fairly self explanatory from There. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Also, we added a featured yesterday that now enables you to cleanly embed other media into your forum posts. How? In your forum toolbar, click "media," and add an embed code for a tweet, YouTube video, or pretty much anything you want in there. Here's an example ... it looks great.



    And another.



    YouTube is real simple. Just grab the page URL and paste it into the media section of the tool bar.

    Enjoy.

    Nice.

    Also, you may have announced this, but any idea or update on the time frame with Bookie?

    Will have that up by the time the season starts. Hoping for the last couple of NFL preseason games. Going to need some bookie volunteers and will be posting about that in the coming weeks.

    Same goes with Social Groups.

    Is there an option for it to cache things locally for things like twitter or facebook? For those of us behind a great wall of work productivity we'll end up just seeing this apparently:

    I am especially thankful for the new feature that allows you to see a larger version of mtowncyclone13's avatars.

    Even a year later I still can't not watch this 10 straight times when it's posted.
