How To “SHARE” S-R Stats

Posted by Neil on August 8, 2012

If you've spent any time at our sites, you've probably seen the "SHARE" command in red text above a table of stats... but maybe you didn't know what that did, or have forgotten how to use it. No worries -- here's a quick rundown of the features you can access by clicking "SHARE":

  • Customize rows & columns - Sharing lets you delete certain rows/columns that you don't want to include in your table. Just click the round 'x' button to delete a specific row/column, or the arrow 'x' to get rid of everything to the right (columns) or directly below (rows) the row/column in question.
  • Export as an HTML table - Clicking 'html
    ' gives you code to embed the table onto your site (you can even choose to keep S-R's inline style formatting).
  • Get a link - Choosing Link URL creates an SR tiny URL specifically for the table you created, which can easily be sent to others via twitter or directly linked at your blog.
  • Export as bbcode - This option lets you copy-and-paste the table into most bulletin board formats.
  • Export into a javascript widget - This will give you code to embed the static table on your site via a js widget. (Note: The 'Embed' option next to 'SHARE' allows you to do this as well, but as a constantly-updated table instead of a static one.)
  • Export as an iframe - For those who prefer to embed the table within an inline frame.
  • Export into preformatted text or CSV
  • Convert table to Wiki formatting - This will turn the table into a format suitable for sites like Wikipedia.

These features are currently active at all Sports-Reference sites except Hockey-Reference, which will be updated either this week or next. Happy sharing!

Attention readers in the Philly area -- we need users like you to come in and help us improve our sites!

Men’s Olympic Basketball Section

Posted by Justin Kubatko on July 2, 2012

This past Friday I gave our Twitter followers a sneak preview of our new Men's Olympic Basketball section on Basketball-Reference.com. Today I'd like to formally announce the launch of this new section of the site and describe some of its features:

  • The Athletes subsection contains a page for every athlete who participated in men's Olympic basketball, from Joe Fortenberry in 1936 to Dwight Howard in 2008. Each athlete's page contains biographical data, statistics game logs, and more.
  • The Teams subsection has a page for every men's Olympic basketball team. Each country has their own index with a summary of their Olympic results and links to more detailed pages for each team they fielded in the Olympics.
  • The Years subsection has a page for each Olympic year with the medal results, finals standings, schedule & results, and more.
  • Finally, the Games subsection has detailed results for each day of competition, plus box scores for every game.

Not coincidentally, the launch of this new section was timed to follow-up on the popularity of NBA TV's documentary "The Dream Team" and in anticipation of the 2012 Olympics in London. I hope you enjoy the Mens' Olympic Basketball section, and as always please let us know if you have find any bugs or have any suggestions for ways that we can improve the site.
