Advanced CSV Importer With Ultimate User Friendly Features
[resolved] Sports Roster from CSV? (4 posts)

    I am self-taught, and have a soccer team website (.

    I would like to be able to populate individual players' statistics/bios for each player on the "statistics" page AND make it easily updatable. In a perfect world, I would set up a template that has a layout like this:

    but which is populated from data stored in an excel spreadsheet like this:

    My excel spreadsheet includes formulas, so comprehensively updating it each week only takes a few keystrokes. I can save it as csv after running the formulas.

    I want to have "statistics" on my menu page, and then, when you pull down to one of the teams' pages,I'd like that page to include a roster that further allows you to select the individual player page that populates from the excel.

    Has anyone done this? Is it possible with the WP Ultimate CSV Importer plug-in? How do I make the template? do I just make the player's stats page a a template with custom fields? If so, what does the site visitor press to populate them (back and forth arrows?, a uniform number?)

    If someone has done this, I'd like to see it. I would rather not re-invent the wheel.

    The plugin can support you to import unlimited no. of post/custom posts with numerous custom fields. Custom post UI plugin is helpful for custom posts and also compatible with our plugin. But the theme should support the custom fields and the way you are expecting to work. I have no idea about requirement. Regarding plugin it works fine for your purpose.

    Thanks, I spent a week tinkering with a sports-specific plug-in, but I think yours is the way to go. I'm just now sitting down to learn how to use your plug-in. I'll post re: my progress.

    Use Custom Post Type UI Plugin and a theme that supports custom post and WP custom fields. Hope you can set up replica of a sport web site.
