    Firstly, great plugin. The functionality is exactly what i am looking for. I have a couple of questions regarding the styling of the tables though:

    1. I know i can change the background color of an entire row and separate the class by home or away games. Is there any way that i can also change the background color of an individual cell? i.e the date cell, i would like to change the background color with the team color (I have 8 teams btw). I would also like to be able to change the font and look of the date itself as far as styles.

    2. Is there a way i can add and extra column? i.e if i want to add a column where someone can click to buy tickets for the game.

    You can view the schedule here, it is a mock-up as i do not have the full schedule loaded. http://www.thesidelinereport.com/dolphins-schedules/

    Hi surgeprotector74,

    1. I don't think you can do this without code modification. I'm going to add those mods to the next release. Pretty simple.

    2. Why don't you use one of the "Media Links" (rename that if desired) for a "Tickets" link?

    I figured it wouldn't be too easy to do lol. I just think it would be a good way to customize it if one has more than one team to schedule while also keeping some kind of continuity throughout the site with all the schedules. I could use one the media links i guess, i wasn't sure if it was simpler to just add another column. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

    Actually if you could, can you tell me how i can do the styling change? Or give me a starting point….i don't really know much about tables and how to separate each cell as far as styling.

    Simpler to add another column than to use one that's already there for essentially that purpose? Ah, no. :)

    You really can't do the styling change without editing the code and if you don't know much about tables and styling cells, you probably don't want to take that on. Nor could I give you a reasonable tutorial in this small space. Sorry. I guess you could always start Googling and reading. (That'e where I end up a lot!)

    AH, i mispoke (miswrote) i meant easier as far as each team has 3 meadia outlets already, two radio stations (one for each team) and one tv station so would have to omit one of them as the max number seems to be 3. I thought it would be easier to add a column instead of another media to make it 4. You are right though, i know very little about CSS and html as i only learned what each meant a couple of months ago, so far i managed to be able to make a new header for the schedule pages as well as new pages to maintain some continuity through out. Here is the result so far: http://www.thesidelinereport.com/dolphins-schedules/ if i manage to figure out how to change each individual feel i will pass it along.

    OK, I see what you mean. The problem is that the next guy will want 5 links. Maybe you could put the ticket links up until game time, then swap it for a media outlet? Lot of manual work, I know.

    I don't think you are going to be able to do it until I add another identifier in the code, but if you do please do let me know. I am not a CSS guru. (You can subscribe to my newsletter on shoalsummitsolutions.com if you are interested in tracking the addition of these identifiers.

    If you have no further questions, I will mark this thread as resolved (or you can).

    Regards,

    Sorry Mark, forgot to set it as resolved. My apologies. I do however have another question for you if you don't mind. Is there a way you can possibly tell me where i can have an "@" symbol show up other that have the home games in bold? Maybe next to the team logo or the such. I was looking into css for it but i couldn't find a way to do it with the classes and id's in place already but i might of missed something as i am a very green novice with coding. Here is my template for the schedule i made if you need to review it: http://www.thesidelinereport.com/schedules/baltimore-ravens-2014-schedule/

    You cannot change the "@" symbol or its location without code modifications.

    The Display Settings let you set the look for home games.
