Cor, this looks really good, props

Any way to access the old old site archive though? I know it was already broken the 1st time the layout changed so I'm guessing it'll be even more broken by now


Seconded. There's at least one story on the old archives that I'd love to read again and/or salvage for elsewhere.

mate you are entitled to your opinion, but the irony is you never posted on the old site...you have done so twice on the new one 😉


nothing ironic there, I never need to post on the old site bc everything worked fine! now on the new site I see so many things that is messed up that I had to give my opinion.

The new site looks fantastic, but (unless I've missed it) one of my favourite parts of the old site seems missing. There was a list on the left of the site to all the most common/popular downloads, including the megapacks, kits, etc. It also included the 'real name change' link, which I can't see on here. If that list can be replicated on the new site (unless it already is and I've missed it), that would be perfect. Thanks, guys.

Hi guys, first time posting but been a fan of the site for a long time. Great work with the new look!

I have noticed that, whilst searching the database, if you look at staff profiles, it doesn't tell you what role the person has at their club. There is a heading 'Club Job' but it is blank after that. Will this information be added in the future?

Once again, thanks for all of your hard work on the site

This is dreadful. Basically like you haven't figured out why people liked using the old site, but somebody told you to "freshen it up". Basic functionality lost, links messed up, search not working. You name it.

good luck for the future

What basic functionality is lost? Which links are messed up? What search are not working? These types of comment are unhelpful and not constructive. Sure there may be plenty of things which aren't completely 100% yet, but not even large corporations get everything right, let alone a website built by one man in his spare time. We all want this site to be the best it can be, with everything working as intended and easily accessible, but these kind of posts don't help this aim to be reached, do they?




i can not search for cut out faces like i could on the old site

Does this from here not work for you?




I like it, but it's getting tedious whenever you switch pages your mouse is hovering over a menu that has been mvoed and everything starts hovering in front of you.

Good work all the same.

Could you maybe provide a screenshot of what you mean here?




I am really not liking this new website. It's not very 'user-friendly' and difficult to navigate around. For instance, I was trying to navigate to the player face cuts and see what teams have been completed recently (something that was very straight forward with the original format) and I just seem to get it.

Very frustrating. Don't fix what isn't broken guys

Does sorting by game-ready images not do that?



nothing ironic there, I never need to post on the old site bc everything worked fine! now on the new site I see so many things that is messed up that I had to give my opinion.

Such as? We are aware there are many things which can be improved. But when the new site was released, there was plenty of stuff which needed to be fixed back then, and many people thought it was a step backwards. However, we all settled into it quite quickly after a while and it worked well for the majority of us. And that's what this revamp will eventually lead to too, I'm sure, it just needs some tweaks which I'm sure Footygamer will do his best to accommodate. But unless he knows what actually needs fixing, he can't fix it...

As above, what is so confusing that you can't manage to find?

Can you provide some details on which profiles don't appear?

It appears randomly - like with Jacob Akanyirige (works now) and several others. Can't really put a finger on the problem, it lasts just for some minutes/hours.

Can you screenshot what you mean? The search is almost identical to the old site:

You see it in your screens, you could filter by players & staff - not just person + by version of the game. In addition to this, there is actually no option to see older cut-outs from staff-members. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to sound rude. I just love to have a good working database with good filters.

Just want to start by saying the new website looks slick, and although there will obviously be some teething issues, and it will take me and a lot of people some time to get used to, in the long run it was definately a worthwhile upgrade, so well done. Give it a few months and noone will remember the old layout.

Quick question regarding the downloads hub, on the old version there was a section you could go into to see like "Other Downloads". So this was like pitch textures, ad boards, trophies etc. Are there plans to add this back in?

I've had a look and although can search for it if i know what i'm looking for, i used to enjoy just scrolling through and seeing whats available. The adboards for example was something I never realised people had edited, and it added soo much to the game! The general downloads form seems full of kits and that, its a lot to sift through

Thanks for the feedback! We went hard in terms of removing categories/forums (there used to be 100s now there's 22) and have perhaps made some things a little hard to find. I'm going to try and bring some of that stuff back 🙂

Most of them can be found by filtering "FM Discussion" with the "Downloads" content type: https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/4/general-fm-discussion?type=download

Do you mean the pre FM2012 stuff?

Yeah - I know they were archived once before when the site was revamped previously, and the formatting took a hell of a hit

I have to say I haven't suffered from the problem suffered in the first paragraph. Unless it can be replicated, it'll be a bit hard to isolate and resolve 😢

What do you mean by the second paragraph? I can see Carlo Ancelotti's past cut-out history, for example, by using the search cut-out tool in the task bar at the top. Does it not work for you?

If you hover on the forums tab at the top, and navigate to the penultimate forum 'Other FM Graphics', does this not give you a forum with the kind of files you're referring to?

Try with Pep Guardiola + it would be great if there would be a link in the database to the cutouts, like it was before or it is actually with players.

Ah, I get it. It was actually the same on the old site too, and I just don't know how it can be resolved from a technical standpoint.

As luck would have it, Guardiola shares the same UID as AC Milan. While every person has a Unique ID which no other player does, that number could be used for a team too within the FM database (and in this instance is). When you input a UID into the search box, if the search system detects that it is the UID of a club, then it displays the whole team's megapack cut-outs (as in this case). If the search system doesn't find a club with the UID you typed, then it searches if a person has that UID and produces his/her megapack history.

Searching for staff seems fine to me?

FMDB: https://sortitoutsi.net/search/database?search=Gareth+Southgate&type=person

Cuts: https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/submissions/1/search?fmid=2005565

some profiles in the database don't show up properly - ends in 404
the new style is ok, but I like the older version more (felt familiar)

Can you post one of the urls that 404s? That obviously shouldn't be happening but I can't find any examples myself.

Lol at the analogy.

But is there anything in particular that you're struggling to locate or use? I'm sure there's a fair bit of re-adjustment to make, but the same features and sections should broadly still be in place.

Im just struggling in general mate. Ive used the forum for years so just finding it all a bit too much to take in. Ive also had operations on my eyes in the last few days so I havent got much patience. Im sure it will all be clearer when my eyes are clearer.

The new submissions forum has taken the place of the old request forum. It'll serve largely the same purpose, but with some enhancements. It's a WIP and there are still some tweaks to come. You can find more info here 👍

Hope you get better soon, first and foremost.

The active posts page tells you which files and conversations have been posted in, by chronological order, most recent first:
https://i.imgur.com/PpE1GEU.png

If you hover on each of the below, it'll display a list of the most frequently-used links/sections in the respective section:
https://i.imgur.com/1OwjiAR.png

From then on, everything should be broadly similar, really.

If there's anywhere else you used to access all the time or most frequently and which you can't find, let me know and I'll guide you accordingly 👍

What exactly do you mean? You'll have to be a bit more specific. Screenshots and examples help tremendously so that any issues can be quickly identified and resolved 🙂

This is what I am seeing Mons. I know I'm in my ninth season of the career game not 11th. If you look my career then maybe you'll see what I mean. Susie, like everything, needed a freshen up and you guys certainly did that.

Another thing missing for me is my forum signature which is on my profile but doesn't appear on my posts. Small things but if we can collectively work out the kinks here and there then all will be good.

First of all, I take no credit whatsoever for the concept, design and execution of the new site. It's been a WIP for a long time, all done by Footygamer alone, which is why I'm happy for him to see that it's all gone off reasonably well. I know there were numerous issues at launch and in the past days, but the basic functionalities are all working as intended, and I'm sure the remaining kinks will all be ironed out in due course too.

Both issues flagged in the new site issues OP 👍

This is for the database search, right? If yes, it's a known issue and on the to-be-fixed list 🙂
