Hello , users of the World Cup Predictor Plugin .
We are proud to announce some new features that are available in version 1.7 of the plugin . Check out :
- Inclusion of single pages for show Predictions by Match and Predictions by User.
Until version 1.6 of the plugin, to display the predictions of all users for a particular match, it was necessary to create a post for that game and use the shortcode :
Where score = 1 equivalent to the id of the match . It’s still work correctly, but was a complicated feature to administer, because in a tournament with 64 matches, you need to create 64 posts , one for each match. Now imagine if you are running a longer tournament as the Barclay Premier League?
With this new feature , everything is easier . Simply create a page with any name (eg “Predictions by Match” ) and then access the Overview page in the admin panel and choose this page in “Page Predictions by Match” ). Automatically an icon appears beside each finished match. Clicking on this link you can view the same page before it was generated by the shortcode, with the predictions of users to that match.
The same applies to predictions by the user. Now you can create a page called by User Predictions for example, and go to Overview page in the admin panel to choose this page in the option “Page Predictions by User”. The same icon will be appear in the page rank beside the name of each user and if you click in this icon, the predictions of this user will be displayed.
Note: In this demo version of the plugin are using the “Show predictions before kickoff users” option so that you can see these new features in action. However, in a real competition would be displayed only guesses matches that have not started.
- New widget for show standings of World Cup Groups.
Previously the plugin had only 2 widgets. One to show the leaders of rank and another to display the logged in user predictions. The name of these widgets were changed according to the actual functionality of each and the second is now only displayed if the user is logged.
Furthermore, we create a new widget that displays the standings of each group in the sidebar of the site. In it, the standings was compressed, showing only the points scored and goal difference of squads. This makes it possible to include this widget on little sidebars, while presenting the most relevant information for classification.
- Option to adjust knockout table for the theme Twenty Fourteen.
When you create a page with a Knockout Table using the default WordPress theme, the content was too far to the right, being necessary to use a margin-left 17em-to correct the display.
However, if the user was using another theme, this negative adjustment could cause problems in your layout.
Now, an option was created on the Overview page where the user decides whether to activate or not the negative adjustment.
- Fix the kickoff times for browsers’ timezone
In this version of the plugin in 2014, many users requested that the schedule of matches to be displayed according to their countries. Previously the default script was showing the matches on time the venue of the same (as in the FIFA.com website) and users could use a little code to allow toggle between your local time and timezones.
We decided to reverse the process. Now by default the matches are displayed in the browsers’ time and users still can insert code to perform the toggle between local time or browsers’s time, or you can uncheck the “Convert kickoff times to the local timezone” option to view the matches only on Brazilian time.
Anyway, hope you enjoy novelty and if in doubt, they can contact the support page on WordPress.org.
