    First let me start out by saying that I know I have tried this before but I gave up on it. I think the domain name had alot to do with the site not doing well as it was kinda long and whatnot. So I have got a really good domain name now. So it will be easier for people to remember. The site is brand new and has only officially been open for a few minutes was just waiting on a customized style to be finished which @Mike Creuzer, @Jake B. and crew did a fantastic job on. Added a ton of really cool features that I think make the style just pop. It's a customized version of their #Rekt theme. Anyways always looking for positive and negative feedback so please let me know what you think of the site http://www.secsport.zone will be https:// hopefully soon. My site is proudly hosted by @xenBoost Mike. The logo was designed by @Sheldon who did an excellent job on it. If you happen to know what the Southeastern Conference is and are a fan of one of their member schools please come join us.

    Yeah should be fixed now. It was an issue with another addon that I will be rolling out in the very near future and for some reason when it's disabled it causes issues. Fortunately someone else had the same issue and a fix was posted. Try again please and let me know. Sorry for the issue.

    @Ernest L. Defoe, really nice forum you've built. I really love how you have each conference side by side with the appropriate teams and the style is very well done!

    Added new usergroups and promotions based on favorite team selected at registration that will color your username based off your favorite team. Took me a bit to figure out but I think it was worth it.

    Hi
    Nice forum, I live in SEC country and a huge UT Vol fan, so as they say, "my blood bleeds orange" lol... I really like forums like this, very nicely designed. One thing I just noticed when I try to click on the Alabama icon at the bottom of the page, I get a server can't be found message. Good luck on your nice forum, very nicely put together and let the games begin. :)

    Yeah I just figured out what the issue is on the clicking the Alabama logo and getting a server can't be found message is because I have an extra letter in the url. Fixing now.

    Looks fantastic man. One thing that threw me off though, when I clicked the link: SEC Sports Zone Home It took me to the home page which makes sense, BUT forums is highlighted for some reason. I scrolled up and down looking around for the forums until I clicked on it a second time which loaded it. This might not be an issue for you, but just thought I'd mention it was all. :)

    Good job on this,

    Flashing/pulsating text colour enhancement on the sidebar?

    Ernest L. Defoe Well-Known Member

    I don't know why it does that. I've noticed it did that before the theme even got customized. Maybe @Mike Creuzer can explain it.

    I'm not really sure why Forums stays highlighted even when on the home page. I thought it was just part of it so never thought more of it.

    It might not even be a big issue for you, just something I noticed was all. :)

    It's because the homepage uses a page node. If you install nodes as tabs by @Jake Bunce you can make a home tab with that node and it will highlight properly :)

    @Jake B. then what would cause the thing that @Mouth asked about?

    I don't see any flashing or pulsating. What browser and OS are you using?

    I'm using OSX Mavericks and Safari not sure what @Mouth using.
