Not Planned User Interface Improvements

    When a user joins a pool they see this

    From there's it's not obvious that to actually do anything they need to click on the "manage my picks" in the menu bar. Having the name of the pool take you to the picks page would seem to make more sense I think?

    Also I'm not sure what DEFAULT VIEW is?

    Also on a fixed width I get this

    but only for "normal" pool type, not for draw which doesn't show anything.

    You only have 1 pool There are sites that have 100's of pools for users to join. Once you add more pools, you will see why its done that way.

    A Default Pool is what allows you to move around the Pickem area and see only that pool. If you are in Multiple pools, you need to change your default view to the pool you want to view. Again, when you add more pools, you will see how this works :)

    That looks like a custom sidebar on a custom style that is a different width and formatting from the default core xenforo CSS. There isn't much I can do to make things work with every custom style out there. The CSS is easy to tweak tho.

    also, I've mentioned this in multiple places around the pickem forums here. those side bar pick distributions are only available for NORMAL pools. They won't work for Draw and Spread. Each Pool Type will eventually have similar pick distributions, but for now, they are only available for normal pools.

    If you want me to, I can take a look at your style to see whats being thrown off kilter.

    You're right that our sidebar is narrower than the default. If that's all it is, I'll change the CSS for that bit.

    I think what I was suggesting was that the pool name should link to the latest picks for that pool. I'll play around with extra polls and see if that makes sense :)

    you might have to take out the %numbers and just have the bar graph (and then put the %number in an ALT tag so they can get a % on mouse over.

    that is an easy template edit that you can make on your own if you want to test it out and see if it works for you. The link is the same for all pools.. the route is pickem-picks with no params.

    I've joined by demo pools on here and I'm still a bit confused.

    If I click manage my picks, it takes me to the picks for whichever pool I have set as the default. How do I make my picks for the non-default pool?

    I must be missing a link somewhere?

    you go to the main pickem page and change your default pool to the pool you want to manage. Default Pool = the Pool that is currently being viewed.

    Ah ok. Maybe 'current pool' is more obvious than default but its not a big deal.

    Its a "Phrase".. just change the wording :D Thats the beauty of the Phrase system.

    One of the "functionalities" that is being worked on is switching between pools anywhere within the addon (simple drop down to select which pool to view).
