Team Rosters

Manages multiple sports team rosters. Displays tabular rosters, a single player bios, and player galleries.

VERSION 3.1.1 FIXES A BUG THAT PREVENTED LINKS TO SINGLE PLAYER PROFILES FROM WORKING WITH CHILD THEMES. IF YOU ARE NOT USING A CHILD THEME AND/OR YOU ARE NOT USING LINKS TO SINGLE PLAYER PROFILES, THEN YOU DON'T NEED THIS PATCH.

The MSTW Team Rosters plugin manages rosters for multiple teams. It provides roster tables with built-in formats for high school, college, and professional teams as well as custom roster formats for basball. Players are assigned to team rosters using a Teams custom taxonomy (screenshot-7). The plugin supports as many players and teams as needed. It provides several views of rosters including: a table (via a shortcode), a player gallery (via both a shortcode and a custom taxonomy template), and single player bio (via a custom post type template). Samples of all of the above displays are available in the screenshots on WordPress.org and on the Shoal Summit Solutions Plugin Development Site.

VERSION 3.1 HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO ENHANCE THE USER EXPERIENCE ON BOTH THE FRONT AND BACK ENDS. THE NEW FEATURES AND SOME BUGS FIXES ARE LISTED BELOW. ALSO SEE THE VERSION HISTORY. IF YOU ARE UPGRADING YOU WILL WANT TO READ THE INSTALLATION DOCUMENTATION AND UPGRADE NOTICE CAREFULLY.

  • The filter by team feature on the "All Players" admin screen now works (screenshot-1).
  • Configure table columns and data fields to meet your requirements. You can show/hide all columns (except Player Name) and change the header/label of all columns and data fields (screenshot-5).
  • Additional color settings have been provided on the admin settings screen, and the code to apply these settings has been re-factored to improve performance (screenshot-5).
  • The new WordPress Color Selector has been added to the admin settings screen.
  • Additional CSS tags have been added to the display code to allow any team's rosters to be uniquely styled via the plugin's stylesheet. This functionality supports websites with multiple teams (leagues or clubs) with multiple colors, as shown on the Shoal Summit Solutions Plugin Development Site.
  • The player name format can now be controlled on the admin setting screen. Several formats are available, perhaps most importantly a first name only format is now available to address privacy concerns with young players (screenshot-5).
  • While the six built-in roster formats remain (high-school, college, pro, baseball-high-school, baseball-college, and baseball-pro), roster and player displays are now highly configurable. Between the admin display settings and the plugin's stylesheet, you can take (almost) complete control of your roster displays.
  • The plugin is internationalized and ready for translation. The current translations in the /lang directory now require updating, especially for the extensive additions to the admin screens. I am happy to help translators.

NOTES: The Team Rosters plugin is the third in a set of plugins supporting a framework for sports team websites. Others include Game Locations, Game Schedules, Coaching Staffs, and League Standings, all now available on WordPress.org. Statitics, Sponsors, Frequently Asked Questions, and Users Guide are planned for future development. If you are a developer and there is one you would really like to have one, or if you would like to participate in the beta testing of one, please contact me (mark@shoalsummitsolutions.com).
