Important Site Upgrade Info

The switch of pages to the new web technology and format that was introduced in a beta last year has finally begun. My goal is to have the most popular pages converted by this fall and the rest as time permits. Until then you will see a mix of the old and new formats (my apologies in advance).

Please contact me if you run into any issues. Include the device and browser that you are using, and the page where the issue occurred.

Updated Section Paths and Page File Names

Part of this upgrade is a reorganization of some of the section and page file names. This will affect any existing links on Wikipedia, news/blog articles, message boards, etc.

I will create redirects for the most-visited old pages so existing links don't break completely. However, since many of the links include specific variables (e.g. season, team), I may not be able to point to the exact page/view in the new format (Update: One early test of this has been successful).

Here are some examples of what has changed or will change:

  • mbasketball >> basketball/men
  • wbasketball >> basketball/women
  • app_final.cfm >> appearances-final.cfm
  • app_final_team.cfm >> appearances-final-team.cfm
  • app_last.cfm >> appearances-last.cfm
  • app_preseason.cfm >> appearances-preseason.cfm
  • app_preseason_team.cfm >> appearances-preseason-team.cfm
  • app_streaks_seasons.cfm >> appearance-streaks-season.cfm
  • app_total.cfm >> appearances-total.cfm
  • app_streaks_weeks.cfm >> appearance-streaks-weeks.cfm
  • num1_weekly.cfm >> number-1-weekly-progression.cfm

Browser Compatibility

The new web technology (Bootstrap) makes it easier to use on mobile devices. However, it does not support any browser prior to the following versions:

  • Chrome 60
  • Android 6
  • Safari 10
  • iOS Safari 10
  • Microsoft Edge Legacy (including all Internet Explorer versions)
  • Firefox 60

Full browser compatibility tables are available here.
