    Hi, I use this plugin for a local Basketball League and so far I like the features.

    I have 4 concerns:

    1. On the player profiles page the stats show both Player Performance (Used for events) and Player Statistics (Used for player lists) in one long table. Is there a way to show the player statistics (averages) in one table and the player performance of each event in another table?

    2. On the teams page, how do I list the players of the team and their stats?

    3. I would like to display single or multiple players who are league leaders for certain stats, like top scorer, top rebounder, top assists, top steals. How can I achieve this?

    4. I would like to have to a playoff after every season displaying a playoff bracket with teams and series, etc.
    Are there any plans to implement this into the plugin?

    1: You are not alone on having both performance and stats in the same table. If that gives you any comfort. ;) Can't help you though...

    2: Make a player list (Players/Player lists) and put the shortcode (something like [player_list XXX]) in the Profile field on the team page. Remember to check the statistics check box and all the checkboxes in each column on the player list page.

    3: Not sure if it will work but try this: Make a player list (one for each scorer, rebounder...), and sort them by the variable for top scorer, top assists and so on. Use the shortcodes for each list and put them on a page. Now that I think of it, it might not be such a good idea. It will show you top players on top of the list. But, you will get all the other players in the list as well...

    I figured that's what I have to do to list the players on the team. It just seems like a lot of work creating a list for each team after I already added the player to a team when I added it.

    For the top scorer/rebs/assists I already tried using the list but it doesn't work because it lists all the player. I just want one or maybe a top 5 in each category. Maybe if a limit could be applied to the list to show only the top 5 based on how you sort the lists. That could probably work.

    Well, now that I think of it there actually is a widget (Appearance/Widgets)that would do what you want. It's called "SportsPress Player list". But then you would have to have a widget area in your theme to show it... AND a player list for each team... The latter is not a very big deal, though. Quite a fast process.

    Your best bet right now would probably be to wish for an implementation of this. Perhaps with a shortcode... At least I think it is a pretty good idea. ;)
    Btw, Have you checked all shortcodes? It might already be there.

    I will try to use the playerlist in the widget for now but I think it would be a good feature to add to the plugin.

    Where can I find all the short codes?

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for your feedback, it really helps us develop and improve the plugin.

    1. Good point! We just recently added Player Statistics as a way to use equations for players. The current implementation is that they are added to what used to be the performance table. We'll definitely add a way to split the Statistics and Performance tables in the next major update.

    2. Currently, the way to do this is to create a player list and add it to the team page. The reason we've separated this from the team page is because some teams have multiple leagues and seasons, so we wouldn't know which set of player statistics to display.

    For example, once the current season is over, you could keep the season's player list in an archive page and create a new player list for the new season. Then it would be as easy as replacing the player_list shortcode on the team page :)

    The other option, as suggested by Knut23, is to create a player list widget and add it to the team page. You could use a plugin like Simple Page Sidebars (http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-page-sidebars/) to add a separate sidebar section to each team.

    3. You guys are right, the player list can be used for sorting players by certain statistics, however the list will show all players. We have a setting in SportsPress Settings > Players that will limit the number of players to show per page. However, this will also affect the full player lists, so we'll look into adding a "Limit" option to each player list in the next major update.

    4. This is certainly in the works, although it will most likely be provided as an extension to the plugin.

    Shortcodes are displayed when editing posts (Events, Calendars, League Tables, and Player Lists). The shortcodes currently available are:

    [countdown #]
    Display a clock counting down to the next event. If an event ID is given, will countdown to that event.

    [event_results #]
    Display the results from an event.

    [event_details #]
    Display the event details (Date, Time, League, Season).

    [event_performance #]
    Display the player performance table from an event.

    [event_calendar #]
    Display a calendar of events. If a calendar ID is given, the events from that calendar will be shown.

    [event_list #]
    Display a list of events. If a calendar ID is given, the events from that calendar will be shown.

    [event_blocks #]
    Display events in blocks format. If a calendar ID is given, the events from that calendar will be shown.

    [league_table #]
    Display a league table with given ID.

    [player_list #]
    Display a list of players and their metrics/performance/statistics if enabled in that list.

    [player_gallery #]
    Display an image gallery of player photos. Uses default WP gallery markup.

    I hope this helps! Thanks again for your comments, and please feel free to let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know about the plugin.

    I was just wondering if this was still in the works.
