MSTW League Manager

Description

The MSTW League Manager plugin manages multiple sports leagues, each with multiple seasons. A “league” can be a league (like the Premier League or Pac 12) or a round robin tournament. A shortcodes are available to display a variety of league standings tables, league schedules, individual team schedules, schedule ‘sliders’, and schedule ‘tickers’. These front end displays can be formatted via a rich set of display settings and shortcode arguments. Displays may be further styled via the custom stylesheets.

NEW IN MSTW LEAGUE MANAGER 2.3

  • New multi schedule shortcode [mstw_multi_schedule_table]
  • New sport schedule table [mstw_lm_sport_schedule]
  • Added new fields for games: “Game Name” – used for “League Championship” or “The Rose Bowl”, “Status Replace” – used for “Canc’ed” or “No report”, “Status Append” – used for “2OT” or “12Inn”. These fields modify the game time/status/result blocks for schedule tables, tickers, and sliders.

NEW IN MSTW LEAGUE MANAGER 2.2

  • A media icon (with link) can be displayed on schedule sliders, tickers, galleries, and scoreboards.
  • The display in the Media column when no media link is found, now defaults to a blank (rather than “No media found.”). A filter has been added to provide control over this message.
  • A school (or organization) database. Teams may be assigned to schools. Any missing team data – names, mascots, logos, etc. – is inherited from the teams’s school. This greatly reduces the data entry requirements when teams are moved forward to new years/seasons. Requires MSTW League Manager Addons version 2.2.
  • A sport database. Sports include the following attributes – name, gender(male, female, coed), season (fall, winter, spring, summer), level (varsity, jr. varsity, frosh-soph, frosh). Sports may be assigned to schools. This association may then be used in page templates for websites with large numbers of leagues, schools, and teams. Requires MSTW League Manager Addons version 2.2.
  • Ability to link a roster from the MSTW Team Rosters plugin to a team. Requires Team Rosters version 4.1.3.

**NOTE: These enhancements are aimed at sites with large numbers of leagues and teams. As such, they require MSTW League Manager Addons version 2.2.

Changelog

2.3

  • New multi schedule shortcode [mstw_multi_schedule_table]
  • New sport schedule table [mstw_lm_sport_schedule]
  • Added new fields for games: “Game Name”, “Status Replace”,and “Status Append”. These fields modify the game time/status/result blocks in all front end displays: schedule tables, tickers, sliders, and galleries, and the single game page.
  • Modified the way mstw_multi_standings_table ‘remembers’ the value of the selected league. It no longer uses cookies.
  • Fixed a bug with the Google Maps link images in the Venue Table.

2.2

  • Fixed bug that prevented more than 300 games from displaying properly in sliders and tickers.
  • A media icon (with link) can be displayed on schedule sliders, tickers, galleries, and scoreboards.
  • The display in the Media column when no media link is found, now defaults to a blank (rather than “No media found.”).
  • Added filters provide control over the message displayed when no media is found and when no location is found.
  • Added support for schools (organizations), from which team data may be imported.
  • Added support for sports, which may be assigned to schools.
  • Added filters to provide control over the display for gender, level, and season of Sports.
  • Added ability to link a team to a roster (from MSTW Team Rosters).

2.1

  • Nonleague games are now shown by default in all displays. So there is no need to use the show_nonleague=1 parameter. If you DO NOT want to show nonleague games, then set show_nonleague=0.
  • Games can now be marked as postponed in the DB and in the front end displays (shortcodes).
  • Fixed bug that prevented display of the media column’s data in schedule tables.
  • Minor clean-up of CSS stylesheets in a number of areas.

2.0

  • Added the framework to automatically update league standings from the league games that are marked final. (It is not necessary to update records with the Add-ons.)
  • Upgraded sorting of standings with two levels of tie-breakers (that actually work).
  • Paginated the Update Games screen to workaround WordPress limits on the size of (http) posts. (This also reduces the risk of web server timeouts.)
  • Added the ability to import a league’s games from a CSV file.
  • New data fields and display options for front end displays (shortcodes).
  • League sliders and tickers now display media icons with links when media is available for a game.
  • Added a /lang directory with a .POT file for translators
  • Fixed several bugs including sorting venues by venue group on the Venues screen.
  • Changed URLs to Protocol Relative URLs to prevent some problems with https based sites.

1.4

  • Two different League Schedule schedule/scoreboard scrolling views have been added. “Tickers” are a very concise view, for a banner on the main page say. “Sliders” present the same information in a larger format. See the examples on the MSTW dev site.
  • League standings table now supports columns for “Last Game” and “Next Game”
  • Home games are no longer automatically indicated with a ‘‘ in mstw_team_schedule shortcode table. A ‘star_home’ shortcode argument was added (which must be placed in the shortcode call). If star_home is not empty, the value is added after the opponent name for home games. For example, if star_home=’‘, an asterisk is added to home games. The home game format may also be changed via the tr.home-game css tag.
  • Added a ‘star_league’ shortcode argument for mstw_team_schedule shorcode (which must be placed in the shortcode call). If star_league is not empty, the value is added after the opponent name for league games. For example, if star_league=’*’, an asterisk is added to league games.
  • Team schedule tables now honor the settings in the Settings -> Schedule Table screen. Please read the man page for more information on how Team Schedules and League Schedules share this set of settings.
  • Team Schedule tables now display the results of final games as “W 24-14” or “L 14-24” instead of the “CAL 24, USC 14” displayed in the League Schedule tables.
  • New arguments have been provided to display a number of days on each side of “today” in the schedule/scoreboard tickers.
  • Changed the link to the team URL from the team name in league schedule tables to NOT open a new tab. I believe this is six of one, half dozen of the other, but if there is enough pushback, I’ll add a setting or shortcode argument to control this behavior.
  • Games now have “post content”, which is displayed on the single game template (/templates/single_game.php). This can be used to show pre-game info, and/or a post game summary and statistics.
