Misc. Category

Could we get a Misc. category? I’d like to discuss video games with other Utes if that’s possible…

  • utahpunk

    I LOVE video games.

    I will second this request.

  • Tony

    I am afraid of having too many categories, but catch-all might be good.

  • utahpunk

    It appears that the original post title stays with the thread. You could have a general “Misc.” category, and then one could start a “VIDEO GAMES” Thread that could just stay active as people post different things.

  • Tony

    WRONG CATEGORY! Moved to the MISC category…

  • YodaUte

    While we’re at it, could we please add a category to discuss the Trans-Siberian Railroad?

    • UtahUteGuy

      Way to derail the conversation!

  • Tony

    While we’re at it, could we please add a category to discuss the Trans-Siberian Railroad?

    We’ll have to launch a fundraiser for that.

  • Drag & Drop Pics & Gifs

    Would be pretty sweet if we were able to just drag and drop pics and gifs. Is that even possible in the future?

    DrumandFeather Podcast

    If you haven’t already, check out the DrumandFeather.net podcasts.

    They are easily the most entertaining Utah football podcasts I have heard. They feature former Utah LB Chaz Walker & he usually dishes some inside knowledge on the Utah program that you won’t get anywhere else.

    I am in no way associated with this, but I really enjoy listening to the podcasts they put out.

  • Ex'dUte

    Just listened for the first time. Well worth the hour I spent — especially since I did it at work and got paid for it.
    Thanks for the recommendation!

  • How to embed video and gifs?

    I’ve seen some of you have embedded gifs and videos from various sources. Could somebody give a simple primer on how to accomplish this? I tried doing a youtube video using embed code and it didn’t work and I didn’t find any straightforward explanation when I looked at wordpress support forums.

  • High Uintas

    I’m equally as baffled and what is the “code” button used for?

    • 3UteDad

      It’s a secret code!

      It would be helpful to get an explanation on each one of the buttons. Nothing comes up when you roll the cursor over. Maybe it’s a customization option that Tony hasn’t gotten to yet.

  • Hockeybeard
    The code button
    puts the lines of text
    into a code format to
    set it apart from the
    regular post like this

    <iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/_i2-BMliKiY” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I’m not sure if Tony@admin has allowed certain embed tags because of the threat of nasty exploits. Can’t blame him.

    To put images or .gifs into your post, just use the [img] tag. Copy the link location of the actual image/.gif and then click the [img] tag and copy and paste.

  • Hockeybeard


    nope, didn’t work. Tried to put a youtube link in under the [img] tag, but it didn’t work out.

  • SouthJordanUte

    For youtube I just simply copy and paste the link straight into the text box. I don’t even use those buttons up top. For imgs and gifs I don’t use the buttons up top either. I upload my pics/gifs to imgur.com and then just copy and paste the url of the pic straight into the text box. The buttons above confuse me as well.

    • Hockeybeard

      Huh…look at that. #SkynetIsReal

  • SouthJordanUte

    Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if you could just drag and drop .JPGS and .GIFS straight into the message?

  • High Uintas

    Seems to work for emoticon images as well.

    So the image button above worked on this one, but it hasn’t on some others for me.

  • Tony

    In the little toolbar above the text field just click the “img” button. Then paste your image URL in there. The next window asks you for a description, which you don’t need if you don’t want.

    • 3UteDad

      Do we need to worry about sizing the image or will the software handle that for us?

  • Tony

    When inserting images there is no need to worry about size. A simple line of code or two I put in makes the images friendly to devices of all sizes. Nice eh? Take a look at the home page on your phone or on your browser and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

    That said it is best to paste images that are “web friendly” and not gigantic, to prevent the pages from loading very slowly.

  • How do you upload an image from your computer?

  • Tony

    How do you upload an image from your computer?

    Image upload is not an option here currently. You can use an image service to store your images and link the image url here with the ‘img’ button in the text editor. Or are you talking about uploading an image for your user profile picture? If that’s the case, click your own name and you will to go your profile.

    Ute – Receivers

    So, as much as I love the fact that Covey is making a “big splash” on the scene and actually contributing this year, I am a little concerned that NOBODY has done much else to bring our passing attack back to life. This probably is more on TW than anyone else. I hope we see an outpouring of pass offense this Saturday.

    Btw, I have to laugh every time they announcers mention “Covey from Provo, Utah”…..probably really gets under tds skin…ha!

    Go Utes!

  • oc_ute

    the tight ends have shown some promise. need to see some more from the wideouts. i question their ability to get separation. we seem to be a tad slow and if you don’t run a perfect route…. bad things happen

  • 89ute

    You can’t put a stat on one of our biggest offensive plays this year. PI’s on Scotty, 15 yards and a 1st down. We are who we are and it’s working so far. Don’t forget about our TEs, they’ve picked up a couple of nice little chunks for us.

    It ain’t pretty, it aint flashy but I think it will continue to work. We have the best 3rd down conversion rate in the conference at 47.8%. By the way, Oregon is 8th at 36.8.

    Everybody loves the long ball, but it’s a low probabilty play. Sure, I’d love to see a bomb completed to someone but it may turn out that it’s just not going to happen. I think it was 2013 where we lead the nation in +50 yard plays, that year didn’t work out so well.

    We’ve got the tools to win, the long ball just isn’t one of them.

  • Wilson's Mustache

    Hopefully with Butler-Byrd getting some reps at WR we will have a guy that can stretch the defense. I think Utah is really missing Tim Patrick. I thought he was going to have himself a pretty decent year, but I don’t know if were gonna se him this year.

  • I feel like the receivers have more receptions through the first three since 2008. I don’t care to look but WRs are catching the damn ball.

    How is it on Wilson he has played one full game this season?

  • sharpone

    You laugh, but I just hope we can hang on to him after his mission recruitment phase.

    NFL.com CFB Picks

    Sadly not one of their “experts” picked Utah to win. However, the game itself was picked as the #1 game for CFB this weekend.

  • GiantUte

    Most expect it to be a close game. Only two are picking Oregon to cover the spread. Hopefully the Utes will take advantage of the perceived lack of respect.

  • Tacoma Ute

    Brandt got the score right. He just picked the wrong team to win.
