Revolutionary update - JoomSport 2.0 for WordPress released!

Wordpress sport plugin release

If you work in the software development area for more than 10 years product releases often become a routine. They bring some bug fixes, new features and give your customers more abilities or slightly better user experience. Only few releases bring the feeling that release point is completely changing everything around. Involved customers, the software development business, team members who were working hard to deliver great product - such releases bring the feeling that once product is published and delivered the world will never be the same again. June 2017 is indeed becoming a life changing month for us and a great hope for many of our customers. Why? The answer is simple:

JoomSport sport plugin for WordPress 2.0 version is now public
and
we will announce iOS release of our sport Mobile app in a couple of days!

Our team is indeed EXCITED about the new 2.0 release. So what is inside? Let's check together one by one.

Investing into customer base growth

We have revised the initial package of features for standard and professional editions and added a number of basic abilities to free standard edition. Things like Extra fields, Venue page, basic Box score statistic, basic Player events views, matches search, Team Squad, Clubs, Game Stages are in Standard edition now. However, Professional version still has lots of excellent perks to consider buying it. Visit our compare page to check the difference.

User experience and fast learning curve

Our first version of JoomSport was released in 2009 and since that time our product has become mature. We have realized that it is extremely important how customers use JoomSport and whether it's easy to learn how to use it. For the last two years we've been putting a lot of attention to these points and - again - 2.0 release brings a lot of improvements into user experience. Structured menu, changed interfaces, improved front pages look and feel, renamed options and messages - all these things were added to 2.0 release. Ability to manage Single and Team competitions simultaneously has become very simple. Moreover, now it is easy to start using JoomSport for the first time - the installation file on WordPress site contains basic demo data.

Redesigned statistics

One of the core things of our product is player and sport match statistics. In the new release we have greatly changed this area. Player statistics is now divided into blocks and it looks completely different.

player sport statistic

In response to our customers' request we have changed the look of player events section on the match page. The change is applicable to player events with added minutes. Pro version users can enjoy greatly improved blocks' style and have more options compared to free standard edition. Another big feature is the ability to add box score records with many different options (divided into player roles, countable and based on other stat records, simplex or composite).

sport team box score statistic

We hope such improvement will help with managing data in sports like basketball, volleyball, American football and many others.

Scheduler generator

We have developed new functionality allowing our Pro version customers to generate a scheduler for their season leagues within a couple of clicks. Please read more about how it works in a separate blog post.

Improved mobile views

Previously it was a part of our user experience section but since the changes are really significant we've put it into a separate blog post section. Standings layout has become really adaptive to the screen size and displays shortened column names in accordance with screen resolution. Calendar layout has become more flexible with the new ability to add extra fields columns. We have also delivered a number of bug fixes improving the look of pages on mobile devices.

Connected to feedback platform

After releasing our feedback portal a couple of months ago we have added a small green widget into all settings sections menus. This should help our customers with submitting new ideas and suggestions for our products. You are always very welcome to add you suggestions!

Download 2.0 standard edition on WordPress.org or download pro edition from your members area, leave your feedback and feel free to contact us if any questions.

Thank you for staying with us!

New feedback system implemented

Successful utilization of customer feedback is a must-have for any software developer. Customers feedback and ideas is something that should guide and inform decision-making as well as influence the product roadmap.


Until now we were collecting ideas and customer wishes through the different channels including emails, forums, ticket system and even chat that is quite popular among JoomSport users. It was a bit tricky for us to organize all requests and understand where we should move our product development.

Today we introduce the new customer feedback system that we have implemented for our development team and our customers. Shortly we also will add feedback widgets to most of our products so you can easily navigate to the feedback portal from there.


You are welcome to

Submit your ideas or Vote for existing features

 

We would be glad to hear your feedback!

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.

JoomSport for WordPress - 1.2 release features overview

Many of famous Championships and competitions are in full play so our new version of JoomSport – WordPress Sports Plugin will be very handy at these days.

We are pleased to deliver several comprehensive core product features in 1.2.x releases:

Ability to create hierarchical seasons. For several stages competitions you can use new functionality allowing creation of Season containers that includes several child Seasons inside – so stats will be collected for all child seasons and can be displayed on one page on FE.

Ability to use match results inside the groups from previous season (pro version). And even more there are few variants how achievements from previous season will be used in current ranking. It will be quite suitable for managing championships with several stages. So when the first stage is completed for example the best 4 participants continue compete with each other but only based on their head to head results from previous stage. Check all possible options in the documentation

Complex matches in Knockout (pro version). Effective feature for creating series of matches between the same participants in Knockout (Single elimination) type of competition. Let’s consider quite famous example NBA, major professional basketball league in North America, where currently the Conference Finals are played in a best-of-7 series.  Team has to get 4 wins with the same opponent before it will get to the next round.

Besides such significant improvements new version include bug fixes:

  • Bug with disconnected Away team when changing match status on match page
  • Optimized CSS for matches shortcode and matches widget
  • Number of bug hot fixes in 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 releases
