Persons and multilingual content
During the past few months we've been analyzing and gathering your requests on our feedback page. We've been working really hard to deliver the most required and useful features and improvements in our new Joomla JoomSport release. The most exciting one is highly demanded section Persons, that allows managing Referees, Coaches and all other staff with their own profile page including photo or any needed additional information. Ability to create Person type Extra field allows assigning Persons to required item for example to Team, to Match or even to Venue.
