Shun mentioned this feature in another thread, so I thought I'd post an update here. Unfortunately, during our recent board transition, we lost the 'Today in Eagles History' feed that used to be at the bottom of the board in the "What's Going On?" section. I think I remember Soda saying that the functionality was gone for good, but she can correct me if I'm wrong. However, all is not totally lost - you can still view most of the events in the calendar. If you click on 'Calendar' on the top left menu, it will take you to the default board calendar. However, once you launch the calendar, if you click on 'Calendar Picker' over on the top far right, you can choose the "This Day in Eagles History" calendar. So, it's not quite as convenient as before, but, at least, the info is still there for those who are interested.

Thanks, Dreamer. I didn't know that's where it is now. Thanks again.

I have a question. Has the Today in Eagles History always been a day off? Example the calendar has Timothy's birthday on October 29th than October 30th.

Thanks so much for the info Dreamer, I have missed the "Today in Eagles History" feed.

Ive always been a dreamer
10-25-2018, 04:02 PM
Okay - this is weird. I checked mine and the dates are correct. However, I looked at the profiles for you and Soda and both of your calendar's are off by a day. The only difference is that both of your times are set on Central Time whereas mine is on Eastern Time. I played around on Soda's profile and set her time to Eastern and it corrected the dates. Then I set it back to Central Time, they are off by a day once again. I don't know why this isn't working correctly, and Soda may have a better answer than I do. But, for now, the only way I know to correct it is to set the time on your profile to Eastern Time. Very strange!

shunlvswx
10-25-2018, 04:14 PM
Oh ok. That makes since now. The board is set on Eastern Time. So when the board goes to the next day, its midnight when it does it, but still on the day before making it look like its a day off for us on Central Time and probably the other time zone.

I actually didn't know the "today in Eagles history" was on the right date. I thought it was just me seeing the "today in Eagles history" off a day.

Ive always been a dreamer
10-25-2018, 04:49 PM
Well - I did some more investigating and I think I figured out the problem and why certain time zones are affected. Trouble is I'm pretty sure it is a vBulletin issue and I don't know if it can be fixed. I'll talk to Soda and see if we can check into it.

shunlvswx
10-25-2018, 05:13 PM
Thanks, Dreamer. The days has always been off since i became a member of the board. I just never brought it up until after I thought the "today in Eagles history" was gone. I had thought it was just the board, but it looks like it effected someone who's on a different time zones.

I'm a couple of days late on this one, but it is definitely an event worthy of mention ...

Same here - I like the song - and I was so happy to see a concept video when they put it out. It's crazy, but the Eagles had never put out a concept video before then. It was always just footage of them singing live or pretending to sing live. I'm glad we at least got one out of 'em.

I wonder why it's not on the official Eagles channel? They only have "How Long" on there.

There's a few minutes left in March 20 (at least EDT). Just saw this:

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: March 20, 1980 - At Asylum Records in New York City, 28-year-old Joseph Riviera holds employees at gunpoint, demanding to talk to either Jackson Browne or one of the Eagles. When informed that they lived in California, Riviera pockets his pistol and leaves the building. Riviera would later surrender to police and never received an audience with the rockers.
