Also, the option to display a user field next to a player username does not seem to be working. If i add {usertext} it displays the linked username next to their username fine (in other words their username twice), however if i put {field5} is shows nothing.

This is likely caused by a malformed conditional statement. It is highly recommended that you fix this error before continuing, but you may continue as-is if you wish."

"This template was changed by someone else while you were editing it. Your changes have not been saved. Please merge your changes from the lower editor into the current version in the upper editor. When you save this page, only what is in the upper editor will be saved."

I re-ad the changes and attempt to save again, same thing. Are we not allowed to edit this or something?
Be careful that you have the whole condition starting <vb:if condition="... until </vb:if> otherwise this error will occur

The problem that we see is when we view the upcoming matches the filter drop down is only showing 12 rounds. Does this mean the league will only have 12 rounds to play or is the viewing only limited to the first 12?
Fixed in next version.

Another issue I forgot to mention. Before the update, the auto complete function adding players to tournaments was working, but now it does not work. Do you have idea why it could be?

Greetings.
What tournament type? How many players/teams?

While using the Ladder System:
It is supposed to number the players.
Example:
1. jason
2. Jander
3. fred

For some reason it looks like this

1. Jason
1= Jander
1= Fred

A link to show it can be seen here:
http://www.gd-gaming.com/ladders.php?do=view&id=3

could use a fix for this.
If they all have the same score then they are all first equal.

As well, just simply for a seamless look, it'd be nice to see the Regress Player image appear in front of the player's username and be the mirror image of the Advance Player. That's obviously just a personal aesthetic note but thought I'd mention it.
If you've got javascript enabled in your browser then the text should resize itself to fit the bracket width.

I just noticed a minor bug. The ladder system is displaying the wrong number of players. You can see it in the rankings here. There are 38 players as of this moment, and the rankings table itself gets the number of players correct. However, under Ladder Details it says "No of Players 40", in the Ladder Description it says "Total Players: 40", and in the Ladder Browser it shows the Ladder as having 40 players. I have a feeling this is caused by players joining and/or leaving and a variable not being properly updated somewhere.

Thanks Banana.

Would it be safe to go ahead and start the league and the update will just add the remaining rounds without affecting the first 12 or should we wait to be safe?

Hey Banana, is there a way I can auto-check someone in for a tournament outside of the check-in timeframe? I have a few players who want to compete in my tournament that can make it to the start time but can't make it for check-in due to time conflicts. Do you know if there's a way I can manually check someone in, or could you add it in? Thanks.

For the problem, the players are just getting used to the system and somehow a pair of them submitted a 0-0 score for a match when it should have been 2-0. They fixed it by making a second match with the proper score, but now there's a 0-0 score sitting there for a match that didn't actually occur. I have no way of removing this match except manually editing the database. Would it be possible to add in a delete/edit option for matches that have already been submitted?

For the improvement, I have players from all over the world, so scheduling is a major issue for arranging matches. A player suggested that it would be nice if the times listed on Find Match and Upcoming Matches lists included the time zones that they were being listed for. At the moment, they just give a 24h time with no indication of which time zone it is in. Ideally, the time displayed would be the time zone the player has set in the forum profile, but if that's not possible a simple marker like EST (GMT-5) would be helpful.

Many thanks! The rest of the system is working very well and players find it easy to use. It's been a major improvement to our forums and will get a lot of use.
Hmm, it should go into appropriate time zone according to vbulletin user profile.

Yh, it'll be fine to go ahead.

It should have updated the numbers if they left/rejoined/etc. but i've added in an extra check in next version to remedy any situations when it does not occur.

How do I find the match id for an already completed match? I can't find that info anywhere in the Recent Matches list.
