Support » Plugin: Team Rosters » How to: Player Gallery view (?)

  • Resolved Javier80


    How Can I put in my page the “Player Gallery view” mode?
    I’ve found this but I don’t understand very much…:

    New in release 1.1! The team taxonomy template – taxonomy-team.php – provides the “player gallery” view for a team (screenshot-6). This file is located in the plugin’s theme-templates directory. Copy these files into your theme’s directory if you want to use the player gallery view. Note that there are no links from the shortcode output to this view. You have to link to this page however you choose. This file was originally built on and tested with the WordPress twentyeleven theme (and WordPress 3.5), so I believe it is fairly generic, but you certainly may need to edit it for your specific theme. (If you have problems, let me know and I’ll certainly try to help you if I can.)

    I copy the file in description in my theme’s folder, but nothing.
    Is there a shortcode for call up this view mode?
    Can explain me, in easy way, how can I do?

    Very Thanks for the answer and your work.

    Hi Javier80-
    After moving the taxomomy-team.php template to your theme’s directory, you have to go to a page like your-url/teams/team-slug/

    You can see some examples here:

    Let me know how it goes.

    Dear Mr. O’Donnell,

    first of all: Thank you very much for your plugin and the support you provide!

    I have a similar issue as Javier80 and I’m currently not able to activate the plugin on my wordpress site.
    I copied the taxonomy-team.php to the theme’s (root) directory, but when trying to open the link it says “content not found”. The theme I use is “Esplanade”. I hope you can help me out (with a little individualized instruction). My goal is to set up a page displaying the player gallery and when clicking one of the picture you will get more information about the selected player (as shown in your plugin screenshots).

    My second question is concerning the field descriptions. How can I change them? (e.g. “Last School” renamed to “Favourite soccer team”)

    Thank you very much in advance for your help!

    Many greetings from Germany,

    Guten Tag Fraglord,
    Wahrscheinlich müssen sie … never mind, I’ll spare you my very rusty German! Sorry …

    First, you say:

    I’m currently not able to activate the plugin on my wordpress site

    Do you mean that you can’t activate it on the plugins page, or that it does not work? I’ll assume you mean it does not work. So probably you need to reset your permalinks. You do that by going to your dashboard->Settings->Permalinks and change the current setting to something else. Save that setting. Then change it back and save again. That should do it.

    As far as changing the column titles, right now you need to either:
    (a) hack the code yourself OR
    (b) create a German translation, then ‘translate’ those titles (incorrectly) to whatever you like so maybe “Last School” gets translated into “Favorite Soccer Team”, I don’t know, whatever you’d like.

    If you’d like to pursue option (b), the plugin is translation ready and there is a lot of information on how to do it. Just search for WordPress Internationalization. Also check out the plugin FAQ and the Game Schedules plugin FAQ. (Game Schedules is already translated into Croatian and Spanish.) I’ll be happy to help you if you’ll contribute a (correct!) German translation file back to the plugin.


    I have not done basic web editing in a long time, so I am a little out of practice.

    1. I have installed the theme
    2. I have gone into my cPanel and copied (moved) the taxonomy template into public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven
    3. Not really sure what I am supposed to do from here.

    I see where I can add teams and players and have played around with doing so. I would like to place the gallery roster onto this page, but I am apparently missing basic steps in between.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Hi Stephanie,
    It appears that you need the right link, something like

    You may also have to reset your permalinks. Go to Settings->Permalinks. Change to any (different) setting. Save. Then change it back to Post Name.


    Hello, i like this plugin very much.
    But got the same problem with the gallery view.
    I copied the taxonomy-team.php in the theme folder. Changed and re-changed the permalinks settings but the site is still showing the “table” listing.
    See here:

    Some other things i have to do?

    Best Regards,

    Hi Mark, thanks for the plugin. Is it possible to embed the team gallery-view to a page or post instead of having it only exist as a separate page/url?

    Wondering if implementation may be similar to how you embed the shortcode for the roster as a table-based object?
