    Just bought. Cant wait to get started. How can I change the name from 'Sportsbook' to 'Betting Zone'. I am a noob, so I will be very grateful if you can provide detailed instructions.

    Thanks a lot!

    I'm fairly sure that the name is a phrase somewhere. I don't have access to a Sportsbook test site at this moment to give you an exact name. However, searching for Sportsbook within phrases should be a great starting point.

    From the admin panel, I searched for phrases that contain the term 'sports' and 13 entries came up. I dont want to mess anything up. So will wait for someone to give something more specific.

    Phrases xi_sportsbook & xi_sportsbook_sportsbook

    The Term Sportsbook is also used in other phrases as well.

    Sportsbook is also used in mutliple routes (which you just can't "change"). You can probably use Jakes route changer with this, but its not been tested.

    Thanks Bob. I edited phrase text inside xi_sportsbook to "Betting Zone" and it now shows up as 'Betting Zone". However I dont see anything called xi_sportsbook_sportsbook. Pl advice.

    Edit - Found it and it worked

    Sorry Bob I have to bother you a bit more... Another related question. How do I change this message on the sidebar which currently reads -
  7. Bob

    Bob Developer Staff Member

    xi_sportsbook_welcome_header (It used to be the header of the page, but the beta testers convinced me to move it to the sidebar... just have not updated the name of the phase yet lol).

    Hey Bob

    Bunch of Q which could also go to the FAQ section perhaps:

    1. How to change url name from domain.com/sportsbook to domain.com/bettingzone
    2. How to change "Recent Sportsbook Events" on the homepage sidebar to "Recent Betting Events"
    3. I am using BD-Banking as the cash system for obvious reasons. How to make it such that any new user registration automatically gets $1000 BD-Banking cash.
    4. How to make it such that any one can grant $1000 BD-Banking cash to all registered users.

    I understand the last 2 questions are more BD-Banking questions, but anyway you can tie the 2 together?

    http://addons.nfljunkies.com/threads/tips-tricks.28/ is packed with info if you have not seen it yet.

    1. You don't (and this applies to all addons). You will need an addon if you want to change URLs. Jake released an addon called "Route Changer" that MIGHT work (don't know as I don't think routes should be changed so I've never used it). If not, you will have to spend a few days editing pretty much every template and every file changing route stuff (and you really need to know what you are doing or it will mess things up big time). You can change all the Phrases without issue, but when you start messing with ROUTES, thats a whole nother ball game.

    2. Edit the Phrase xi_sportsbook_recent_events

    3 & 4. No. Both of those functionalities would need to be built into BD Bank itself.

    url change is not critical I guess, so thats ok. Thanks for helping with no.2 :)

    I thought since you offered to help with trophy points in the xenForo forum, you could do the same with BD-Banking. Guess its not the same. No problem.

    3. If you already have both installed, simply go to Applications ---> Sportsbook -----> Cash Management Award users whatever you feel they deserve upon registering. Just make sure your [bd] Banking cash is being deposited into the table sportsbook_cash first.

    4. You would have to go into your database and change all to whatever amount you wanted.

    If you need help with integrating [bd] Banking with this, let me know. I have used it like this since I started BETA testing, so I know my way around this part pretty well.

    Hey Stewart. When you choose to use BD-Banking doesnt it automatically link the 2. I mean with the default(using BD Banking with Sportsbook)) the bets are getting settled correct because there is a link right?

    Yes, I would like to know more about how to award BD-Banking to all registered users via sportsbook. I am an utter noob and not comfortable with tables and SQL, so will need detailed instructions I suppose. Pl help me out.

    Things I feel Sportsbook lacks
    1. Can use BD-Banking system but no way to give registered users some default money with that option selected.
    2. There is no alert or leaderboard or even a message on the public board that says someone has won the bet. Would have been an added incentive for people to place bets.
    3. The BD Banking history doesn't show when a person uses cash to wager or even when a person wins, although the balance shows up right.
    4. No way in the interface to delete a settled event? I still have a settled testing event that I cant delete.

    1. BD Bank is a 3rd party Addon with its own cash administration. The administrative functionality you want is something that BD Bank lacks, not Sportsbook (as I have this feature built into Sportsbook for its own cash system administration). Why don't you set BD Bank to use the sportsbook_cash field and then use Sportsbook Cash for Sportsbook (which then allows you to use all the Tools I built in for Sportsbook Cash). Just work with Stewart on it.. he can square you away..

    2. Alerts and Newsfeeds for Payouts are in the works. As far as a "leaderboard", there is an entire STATs area that has that information and more.

    3. Again, BD Bank is a 3rd party addon. I am not building anything into Sportsbook to control things within BD Bank. All sportsbook does is share a common field in the xf_user table. It does not and will not interact with BD BANK. The way to look at this is that you are using CASH, not an ATM Card, so no, BD Bank will not have a history of what you spend your CASH on or how much CASH you receive. Sportsbook does not withdraw or deposit into your bank.... it deals strictly with cash.

    4. More Enhanced Event Administration on the backend is being worked on. There are A LOT of things to factor in on removing an event that has been settled. Its not as straight forward as you might think. That is why settled events are non removable right now.

    Thanks for the answers. Agree that BD-Banking is 3rd party and me saying 'lacks' was wrong.

    Whenever you have the time can you let me know how you are giving BD-Banking cash to newly registered members and how you give it to entire user groups. Thank you

    Follow this thread to integrate [bd] Banking with Sportsbook. http://addons.nfljunkies.com/posts/428/

    Once done, in the Sportsbook Options, you can set the amount to give to new members upon registration.

    Bought and installed this yesterday - very well written. CLearly a lot of thought has been put into the design and appearance also, which is much appreciated.

    Anxiously awaiting the next version with the alerts on bet settlement - very happy to use this in the meantime, though! Outstanding.

    Bob, I would like to change the name also. Can you point me to the correct phrases for the current version?

    The Navigation Tab uses the phrase: nflj_sportsbook That phrase is also used in several other places throughout the addon as well, however, there are several hundred sportsbook phrases. You can filter the phrase list with nflj_sportsbook so that it only displays phrases pertaining to Sportsbook. Also, you can use the search phrases functionality to find all phrase that have the term sportsbook in it.

    Another thing you might want to do is create a route filter to change the route: sportsbook (used in the URLs) to what ever you are wanting to rename it to ie route: bookie This is done with the route filters system that comes with XenForo.
