This plugin adds a fantasy sports pool to your blog. Play against other users, predict outcomes of matches and earn points.
Logged in users of your blog can predict outcomes of matches and earn extra points with bonus questions. Every player can view scores and charts of the other pool contenders.
This plugin installs some custom tables in the database and ships with match information for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, but it can be easily manipulated with the match info for other championships or sports. Please note that deactivating this plugin may also delete all the plugin's data from the database, please check the 'keep data on uninstall' option on the settings page (it is set by default since version 2.3.1).
I originally coded this pool in PHP as a standalone site for the UEFA 2000 championship and rewrote the damn thing several times for every European Championship and World Cup since. Every year I added new features. In 2012 I decided to transform it into a WordPress plugin. I hope you like it.
A special thank you to all the translators that found time to translate the many labels in this plugin. And thanks to all the users that reported bugs.
If someone wants to help translate the plugin in another language, or make the existing translations better ;), please contact me at wordpressfootballpool [at] gmail [dot] com. The FAQ contains information on how to use a different language. Available languages in the plugin can be found on the "Other notes" tab.
