    Hey Bob,

    Quick suggestion to implement a text box in the backend for each pool so that we can put text / images / links / whatever for each pool that shows up in the front-end above everything else.

    Same suggestion to be applied to pick'em as well!

    Cheers,

    Regs.

    Why not just use the core XF Notices system?

    Home >> Notices >> Create New Notice

    Create the notice as normal, click on the Page Criteria Tab, Check "Selected Navigation Tab is:" survivor. Save notice, then that notice will display on all Survivor Pages. If you only want it to say display on the Leaderboard, you can use the Controller and Action options.

    That would only work at the "general" level though, correct?

    If I have an NFL pool and an NHL pool, how can I have different info at the top of each (with text/images/html)?

    Can't remember if you can use xen syntax or not, but if you can, you can use the default pool id to display different messages for different pools.

    That could be a work-around solution for sure though I suppose you would be stuck with have the 'notices styling' for pool headers/instructions/prizes/announcements/update-text

    The suggestion is really related to a pool set-up procedure and keeping everything neat and tidy in one spot without having to go into other 'systems' to put this kind of stuff in.

    I'm still 50/50 on this. Where exactly do you want it displayed? Doesn't make sense to me to display it on ALL pages. I can see it being useful on the PICKS page, but it would probably drive people nuts seeing it on the main page all the time without being able to dismiss it.

    meh... just tossed this in for those that want to use it. For those that don't want to use it, they can just ignore it.

    Its very BASIC (I don't plan on adding a bunch of functionality to it).

    There is an input box for each POOL that accepts HTML (not BBCODE).

    If there is Pool Content to display, then it will display on the frontend on the Manage Your Picks page (which IMO is the most obvious place to have it).

    note: if you want it else where, its an easy block of code to add to the Main Landing page or the Manage Your Pools page.
