Welcome to the MSTW Game Schedules Plugin from Shoal Summit Solutions.
The MSTW Game Schedules plugin manages multiple sports team schedules including: game dates and times, opponents, locations, results, and links to media (print stories or video on games). It features a countdown timer from the current time to then next game or next home game. Shortcodes and widgets are available to display both the schedule tables and countdown timers.
Front-end features for Website visitors
The following features enhance the site user experience:
- Schedules (Table) Widget - displays schedules (in tabular format) on pages and posts.
- Schedules Widget - displays (abbreviated) schedule tables in widget-enabled areas.
- Countdown Timer Shortcode - displays countdown timers to the next game on pages or posts.
- Countdown Timer Widget - displays countdown timers in widget-enabled areas.
Back-end features for Website Admins
The following plugin features enhance the website admin experience:
- Integration with Game Locations Plugin - makes it even easier to enter game locations and link them to maps and driving directions.
- Unlimited Number of Schedules - may be created, so historical schedules and results can be saved and future schedules can be advertised.
- Import Schedule from CSV Files - allows an administrator to upload schedules from CSV format files.
- Plugin Stylesheet - allows an administrator to style schedule and countdown timers shortcode and widget displays via one simple, well-documented CSS stylesheet (css/mstw-gs-style.css).
- Internationalization - the plugin is fully internationalized (as of v 3.0) and Croatian, Spanish, and Swiss German translations are included with the distribution. (Many thanks to Juraj, Roberto, and Chris!)
- There is no singular post template in this release. A single game view, complete with helmets/team logos and all the information is available in the schedules is planned for version 3.1. It is waiting for the sport and team concepts to be fully fleshed out in the My Sports Team Website (MSTW) Framework.
- The Game Schedule plugin is the second in a set of plugins supporting the My Sports Team Website (MSTW) framework; a framework for sports team websites. Others include Game Locations and Team Rosters, which are both available now on WordPress.org. Learn more about MSTW.
