JoomSport for Joomla major release 4.1

Each JoomSport major release brings very special feeling to our team - emotion of celebration and proud of achievements. In fact it is the feeling that something important is changing again in our company and in our products and even more - that we actually leave a mark in history.

We're also glad to note that current release is not a trivial code update with some bug fixes but it includes some new WOW features inside. It was very hard to deliver this time - the team had so many discussions, disputes and emotions. Each member of our team hopes that EVERY customer who updates his local instances to the latest 4.1 release will also have this WOW feeling.

Let's go through the list of the changes together:

Improved Player statistic

 

We have delivered two optional blocks for Player profile page. Played minutes, Lineups, Substitutes, Goals and other Events can be displayed in Career block with flexible columns. This block allows comparing Player performance in different Seasons. Match Statistics block displays Player events by matches.

 

Matrix add-on

Effective way to display Round Robin fixtures and played matches. There is ability either display Matrix button on Season table or show a separate layout by adding the new Menu item. It is Delivered free of additional charge with the main product package as Matrix doesn't really bring new functionality but combines the way how the current data is presented.

Match timeline

Now match statistics is more useful than ever. Colorful timeline is a perfect visual display of Player events in their sequence. Match duration is used as base scale and event images are stringed on it.

New Calendar Layout

In JoomSport all matches are organized by Matchday and now there is ability to display Calendar by Matchday as well. Matches of separate Matchday on each page. Handy navigation allows getting to the required Matchday without any difficulties. By default Matchday with the most recent match is displayed first. Moreover new module with the same functionality is available in public version.

Mobile App API

Included mobile API will allow each client to purchase and use our future Mobile application product so this is the first step to get mobile application for your club or league.

Languages updates

Updated translation to Spanish (special thanks to Pasionporelrayo project), Slovak, Chinese, Portuguese, Czech, Slovenian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, French and Russian. Many thanks to all the translators who supported us on product localization!

Number of minor improvements and bug fixes

Predictions integration with Knockouts matches, Venue Google API fix, check version algorithm improvement, Match layout order by Player Extra field (Squad tab) doesn't work, unable to delete match custom status, improve knockout layout when branding removed, Today matches edit results are not added to the Season table, Scroll module alignment, fixed CSS for tooltip on calendar, big number inside the score fix, add all teams to the season fix.

Please download the new 4.1.2 version from your Members Area and install it on your website.

JomLeague to JoomSport convertor developed

Many years ago we started our JoomSport product because we were choosing some Joomla sport component for our local football team. At that time JomLeague was the most comprehensive and well known league management solution for Joomla. That was the product supported by open community. In spite of the fact that it had a lot of features our developer and co-founder Andrew didn't like much the structure of JomLeague so decided to start their own product idea. That is how JoomSport was started more than eight years ago...

Couple of years ago JomLeague stopped their official support due to the lack of community efforts. The last official release was compatible with Joomla CMS 2.5 only so the community had never received the official JomLeague version with Joomla 3 compatibility.

Recently we had a chance to analyze JoomLeague structure on deeper level as number of clients requested to convert their data from JomLeague to JoomSport. We should state that JoomLeague is really great product and it is a pity it has stopped the development. Honestly saying in some specific cases JoomSport still doesn't have the features that JomLeague had many years ago! At the same time technology doesn't stand still so today we have to notice that JomLeague became quite outdated system, in terms of design and CSS styling at least. So many clients have started looking for the way to convert their data from unsupported system to something new, officially supported and better looking.

Our team is glad to announce that we've managed to develop the script that converts JomLeague data to JoomSport database. We have already converted number of clients who are quite happy with the result and we would be glad to share free the script with anyone interested. Still we need to say that migration process is quite complicated even if you have the script itself and in most cases it takes 3-4 iterations to complete the migration perfectly. So our custom development team is actually ready to provide JomLeague data migration service for anyone interested.
