LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Ahhh...I have no idea why they didn't appear yesterday, when I was looking at my profile , but indeed they're there now...
anyhow, thanks for the reply Warrior

Easiest way to check it when something says "Public" is to log out, then try to look at it. If you can see it, then it's public public. If you cannot see it, then it's members only public.

Thumbs up Keep up the GREAT WORK!

Really liking the changes.
I noticed that when you want to change your avatar you can either upload from your machine or use an url (address).
Warrior, do you think it would be better to keep the field blank?
Instead of https://www. keep the field blank and then you simply just paste the url in.
When I see a website for an image I want I usually just right click on copy(the entire url) and then click paste.
Good idea?
KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC, GREAT, OUTSTANDING WORK!

I noticed it's not viewable to the public. As an example I was trying to look at the members list when I logged out. I had to be a member to see it. I like that.

Re- URL for upload: You can just paste it in. Highlight the stuff that is there and just delete it/paste over it.

For public stuff: There are different level of groups. Admin is one, active members is another, then there is Users Awaiting. They registered but haven't activated, and then Visitors/Not Logged In.

We can pretty much set permission access for EACH group, letting them view what we want them to view.

For example: The permissions were OFF for active members to create Blogs or to view Albums/create albums. I changed those permissions for the regular membership, and viola'!

Well, question number 10245 Is there a way of finding who has albums, like the blogs? Or could there be?

Wow I have been away for a while, new computer, lost passwords etc etc. Finally worked out I was spelling my own user name wrong!!!!

So I finally make my way back in and find the builders have been in painting and decorating in my absence !! Well done to Tracey and Warrior for so much hard work.

A change is as good as a holiday

This answer is a little late because I didn't notice the question before, sorry. As far as I've found out you have to visit a user profile to see whether he/she has a public album or not. It's a little uncomfortable, but I haven't found another way yet...

I've got an album in my profile. I don't have it set to public.

Not a problem on your end. It was a tiny little hack I had in place before, but the latest little upgrade didn't like it.

Thumbs up Great Job! Warrior

I noticed the background colours and texture is a little different. I like it.

Ooh! I just noticed the photos in the top banner - v sweet!
LOL - from the first picture I'm guessing Dirk needed braces as a kid - to get the perfect white smile of his!

Have they been up long - or have I just not noticed!

The site is always improving! I like the changes, good work again, Darrell!

(Just two little things:could you please check the link section? Some of them don't work anymore. Maybe they can be replaced by others? And the 'post a comment' button in the blog section is almost unreadable, maybe you can change the colour of the font? Or is it just me who searched the button for ages?)

The links are one of the first things I noticed when I did the new pull down menu... so at the time you posted, they were already changed

As for the post comment link (and many other text colors), they'll be changing over the next night/day or so.
