    First of all let me say that I asked the admins for permissions to do this.

    I have created a humble wolves website, based on the idea of one I always wished existed. The very idea was the Newsnow news aggregator that collected the latest Wolves news from several sources, and combining this with Wolves stats, results, highlights and predictions etc.

    Please check it out and let me know what you think. What's missing? What's presented wrong? Is the entire site just a piece of junk that shouldn't be online at all?

    Feel free to test the game predictor and player ratings (even though I realize it's been a while since that game against Sheff Wed.)

    And finally let me say that I added the betting advertisement to try to cover the costs. The Wolves stats/data is a subscription service. I had to do it things way, otherwise I wouldn't have been allowed to use the data (extremely stright rules on these matters). I'm pretty sure this won't cover the costs, but it might help just enough so that the site kan stay up (if there is any interest in it).

    Be honest please! :cool:

    Brilliant, massive gap in the market for something like this and i'm surprised Molineux Mix hasn't done similar.

    I'd wanted to do something similar myself but haven't got the skills.

    Will give it a book mark

    Looks good on mobile. I know I often Google the Championship table, and have NewsNow: Wolves bookmarked, so this will be even better. Well done, asleulv!

    Make sure you install iThemes Security. Set up brute force protection and move the /wp-admin folder. Also, remove the "powered by WordPress" crap from footer.php in the theme, it looks a little unprofessional.

    good but it still doesn't tell me when the takeover is going to be complete, does it have auto refresh to save my F5 key :D

    I think this is a great idea. A well presented site that gives everything you need in one place.

    Going straight in the favourites.

    One little thing......
    When using the player ratings section and selecting the rating from the drop-down, the box displays blank. You can then only see the ratings you have just chosen once you submit them. I would have preferred to see all the ratings I had given showing in the boxes before submitting, in order to sense check against other ratings.

    Possible addition......
    The BBC Sport website brought back their line-up selector for the Euros this year. I used to love it when each team had one of these that you could play about with different formations and starting XIs. I doubt they will have one of these for Championship teams.
    So if there is any way of building one of these that would make the site extra awesome!
    Maybe you could then allow people to submit their preferred lineup before games?

    Wolves fixtures including friendlies & then separate Championship fixtures.

    I mostly use an Ipswich web/fan site I think it is, has the full tables,
    forms & fixtures from all leagues which I find useful when placing my bets.

    Might be a good place to catch up on the news, a good effort.

    Thanks for the nice words everyone, I really appreciate it! Been a while since I've tested my modest css skills, so it was mostly fun.

    Cheers Andy, will do. I was actually looking through the template last night to get rid of the silly WP/theme credits, but gave up when it wasn't in the footer file. But I'll find it! :)

    Newsnow has been my go-to site for Wolves news for ages. I figured we could use a version designed for Wolves fans specifically.

    I'll have to look into this. Can you please tell me what browser and OS you are on?

    Re the line-up selector: This is a feature that will be ready pretty soon. However I need player photos for this, and I'm not sure how to get and use those in a legal way. Everything is copyrighted. Maybe I have to draw 'em :goodnight:

    Windows 10 and Google Chrome.

    Excellent news on the line-up selector. Photos may be tricky. Some rudimentary, 8-bit likeness of each player might make for good entertainment!

    :congrats: Very nicely done. Smooth and quick. :congrats:

    The only thing I would change, and it's very minor, is that it is quite white-heavy. Maybe adding a splash of colour through borders between sections. Much like the coloured bars on this page maybe?

    Works good. I've tried it on Chrome, Firefox & Microsoft Edge. On Edge you have to scroll Down the rumours/News links to see "latest" and " Next up" areas.

    Brillant Asleulv. Bookmarked and passed on to other Wolves fans not on here. As Stefan said, there was a gap in the market for this!

    I've been a website designer, (for a hobby), for many years. I like http://wolveshq.com/ as it is simple and to the point. No obtrusive ads popping up as on some sites. All in all, a good un.

    Well done Asleulv. A good aggregation site. Added to my quick access page and will certainly use instead of newsnow which has so many adverts these days that I constantly and accidentally "click" on as I scroll up and down with my fat fingers! ... can you re-design the official site now? :D

    Looks solid with simple layout. I am a website developer and noticed a couple of potential security issues. Will PM you later rather than broadcast them. I work a lot with Wordpress as well. Would be much improved with images too.
