Automatic Player Linker / Add your site to our newsfeeds

With the NHL season starting up, here's a reminder that you can request for your site to be added to our player newsfeeds. To get started, all you have to do is write a post as you normally would and use our linker tool, causing hockey-reference player links to be automatically added. Then let us know you want to be included by sending us the following information:

  • The name of your site to appear in the feed (at most 25 characters)
  • The url for your rss feed (must be a full feed)

We'll review your request, and try to get your content added as soon as we can. It's a great way to get your content out there, and it gives your readers quick access to player stats and information.

In case you want more info, here are two videos about how it works:

PFR and Hockey-Reference.com Now on a New Server

Posted by admin on September 7, 2012

We recently leased a newer, more powerful machine to host our football, hockey and basketball sites. Basketball hasn't moved yet, but today we flipped the switch on the football and hockey sites. This new machine boasts 16 cores and 16GB of RAM, so it will be a lot faster than our previous machine.

This should mean you can now view Tom Brady and Jurrell Casey's pages much more quickly.

Hockey-Reference Template Update

Posted by Neil on August 13, 2012

As you might have noticed, we updated the site template at Hockey-Reference over the weekend, bringing it up to code (pun intended) with the rest of the S-R sites.

What does that mean for you? Here's a rundown of the new features we added:

  • Rollover menus in the navbar. Rolling your mouse over the "play index | boxscores | players | etc." menus at the top of pages will now give you more options, including quick access to recent results.
  • Improved table sorting. Now, you can reset tables you sorted (via header clicking) by clicking the header again until the original sorting returns -- the order goes from Default --> Descending --> Ascending --> Default.
  • SHARE stats.You can now use our SHARE capability to customize tables, link to H-R content, and embed stats on your own site.
  • Link to specific tables. Every table has a Link option that lets you send people directly to the table you want.
  • ...and more!

As always, you can report ongoing bugs here: Sr.FogBugz.com

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!
