    we have been using your plugins for two years now and everything has always worked great. Thank you for your hard work on these. πŸ™‚ Very recently the team roster plugin stopped working. http://www.leominsterhighfootall.com is the link to the web site. http://leominsterhighfootball.com/teams/varsity/ redirects to http://leominsterhighfootball.com/mstw_gs_schedules/varsity/ where you now get a 404 error. There are several different teams, all cause an error. The shortcode to create the gallery does not work either. The cheerleaders roster returns a error in functions.php. I created this a couple of years ago and other people do work on this site so I assumed it was perhaps something someone else did but I’ve been looking around, went back to wp3.9.1 and tried reinstalling the plugin..etc. There are lots of members in the teams and, like i said, they’ve always shown up… until recently. Anyway, perhaps you could point me in the right direction to get this resolved?

    different plugins but i just noticed that the game locations aren’t linking anymore from the schedule any longer either and the direct links…. http://leominsterhighfootball.com/game-locations/crocker-field are returning a 404 as well. You can see the locations are all listed here and used to all link to the schedule. http://leominsterhighfootball.com/game-locations It’s got to be something simple i’m missing here?

    the template files have been moved to the theme directory. I have re-saved my permalinks. I’ve reinstalled several different versions of wp and I have tried deactivating certain plugins.

    Hi Kim,
    Thanks for the post. FIRST, Game Schedules & Game Locations have been replaced with MSTW Schedules & Scoreboards, and are no longer supported. It takes some work but everything can be exported from the old plugins (using MSTW CSV Exporter) and imported into Schedules & Scoreboards. It takes some work but the new features and the tighter integration acros Schedules, Teams, Games, and Venues(Location), not to mention better integration with rosters and coaching staffs in the near future, make it worth the effort. ( IMO πŸ™‚ )

    That said, your link to the varsity schedule is not correctly formed in either the old or the new. My first suggestion is to reset your permalinks. The location link issue also looks like a badly formed URL(link). So resetting your permalinks might fix that as well. Changing versions of wordpress will reset the permalinks to the default. The plugins expect them to be post-name.

    Let me know.

    Thanks.

    I will install the new plugin to try and fix the location issue but that isn’t my primary concern. That all still works, just the venue link doesn’t work.

    My team rosters (gallery) simply don’t show up anymore and that is my primary concern. As I mentioned, i have reset the permalinks several times already. I have tried uninstalling, re installing (yes, permalinks saved again..and again). This has worked great for almost 2 years now. I see the links calling on the wrong page but even when I type in the url directly or try to view a player or team from the backend I get a 404 now.

    Well, if it worked for 2 years and now doesn’t work, the question is “WHAT CHANGED?” It sounds like a number of things in your environment may have changed.
    – What version of the plugin was working? Did you install a new version that stopped working?
    – Did you copy the taxonomy-team.php and single-player.php templates to the main theme (or child theme) directory after upgrading/changing themes?
    – Have you looked at your WP debug.log file to see what PHP warnings & notices might be there? If there is debug.log file in your wp-content directory, it might be worth turning on WP DEBUG and directing the output to that file. (Lots of posts on the Internet on how to do that.)
    – Did you change web hosting services?
    – Did you change your httpdconfiguration? Did you install any new plugins?

    I keep the MSTW Dev site up to date with the latest WP, so the latest release works with the latest WP (at least on my server).

    i’ve reinstalled wp files …again. i’ve reinstalled the latest rosters plugin (as well as the new schedules & Scoreboards) and imported my data. The taxonomy still wont work from the backend or the front end, i’m getting either 404 (for the first couple of players I select) or php error (for the others) and I can’t link directly from menu or view anything from the admin. I’ve set the shortcodes and now I can at least see some of what I had here before…

    http://leominsterhighfootball.com/varsity-roster/ for example.

    This looks similar to what I had. I have “hide” selected for certain things in the display settings (exp, hometown, last school) but they still show in the gallery. Is this because the shortcodes are over-riding the selections?
    [mstw-tr-gallery team=varsity roster_type=college show_title=false sort_order=numeric] that is what i have in the page.

    Also, I can not link to individual bio pages. I believe I had this option turned off in the previous set up but I can’t find that either. I’d rather have no link than a broken link.

    I’ve reset my permalinks no less than 100 times. πŸ™‚

    I think this is all set. yay. have to play with it more but it works from shortcode(only).

    Well, I guess that’s some progress, but I see the links to the single player pages still break.

    I say again, if it worked before and then stopped, SOMETHING CHANGED. What? Please answer the questions from my last post, and that might allow me to help you further.

    The 404 is strange, very strange. If the taxonomy is not working on the admin screens, that needs to be fixed first. What exactly do you mean by:

    The taxonomy still wont work from the backend or the front end, i’m getting either 404 (for the first couple of players I select) or php error (for the others) and I can’t link directly from menu or view anything from the admin.

    Do you mean you can’t bring up the Teams screen? What errors are you getting? Do you have WPDEBUG turned on? If so, please e-mail your debug.log file from your /wp-content directory. If not, please turn DEBUG on and send me the log. There are many posts on the web on how to do that, including one on shoalsummitsolutions.com. That might help me help you (a lot!).

    As for showing and hiding the data fields, there are several ways you can go. All the display settings can be addressed for individual galleries (or tables) via shortcode arguments. Check out this manual page and see the examples on the MSTW Dev site. Whether you are using the display settings or the shortcode arguments, you want to set roster_type=β€˜custom’.

    As for turning off the links to the player profile pages, you are correct, there is not a display setting in the latest version. Just remove the single-player.php template from your main theme directory and the links should disappear.

    Let me know.
