JoomSport for Joomla - the 5.6 version published!

We are glad to announce the release of the new JoomSport version.

Here is the list of improvements delivered:

Automatic game stages - divide your match events!

Allows you to divide player events automatically into periods / halves / etc. It also allows you to have the separate proper section for penalty shootout. Here is how it looks like for incredible EURO 2020 match on our Statorium.com

The new Live Scores module

To improve the experience of those who uses our Statorium football API service we designed the new live scores module. The matches are grouped by leagues. The good thing about the module is that current match time, current live scores are updated without page reload!

Significant speed improvements for selected pages

We have improved the speed of the many pages due to big optimization done on database queries level. The tool tips were optionally removed for some pages that contain matches.

The new major features set for predictions

Those clients who has our advanced package can benefit from major features delivered for predictions:

- The new module "My predictions" 

- The new functionality "private leagues" so you can allow your users to invite their friends to compete

- The place ticker to know how predictor place is changed after each round

Mostly we already have those features in our WordPress product. We expect the new cool changes delivered to the predictions add-on soon again.

The new Roster module

It allows you to have the roster cards of selected team published in separate module just in any place where you need it.

Some other minor changes were applied to the code. Enjoy the update! Keep in touch with us.

Couple of new features for predictions plugin

This week we have published the new 2.1.1 release for prediction plugin. It delivers two new features.

Joker match

Once enabled in plugin settings users can select one match inside each round to be Joker. Points for such selected match will be doubled.

Bonus points

Users can earn extra bonus points for guessing correct score for at least one team.

I have configured the points in my example league as follows: Exact guess = 10, Winner & Score difference = 5, Winner side = 2, Bonus for correct gals guess = 1

So finally points system works with the following rules and cases:

Option Description Example prediction Example score Points gained
Exact Result when score prediction is exactly equal with match score 1:1 1:1 10
Winner & Score difference user predict goals difference AND winner of the match 3:1 2:1 5
Winner side When prediction is correct only for team who win the match 0:1 2:4 2
Bonus for correct goals guess Only one team score prediction was correct. 0:1 2:1 1
  Bonus is added to other cases but not exact score. Here is the example with winner side and bonus 2:1 2:0 2+1=3

 Please contact us if you have any questions. We will be glad to support you!

JoomSport predictions for WordPress - major release 2.0.

It is incredibly mixed feeling. To release the big update for the product that is installed only on ~200 sites and new development never pays off. At the same time we know that it is used by one of the most recognized predictions sites on national level in some countries. We want to make people who use this product happy with the change delivered. This is the primary reason we created this update.

So, what was changed:

Private leagues shortcode. (pro version)

Private leagues approach is totally rethought. All the management is done without the access to admin now. Via shortcode. It is possible to generate the link so you can share it with your friends. They will be able to join your private prediction league automatically after they log in. Сlean, accurate, mobile-wise, user friendly.

Private leagues Wordpress predictions shortcode

New private leagues create UI allows you to copy the users who participated in other private prediction league you manage. So if you have your friends predicting national level competition each year this feature will allow you to avoid inviting same users every time. 

We want to bring special thanks to Stefan from https://intikkertje.nl who inspired us for this development.

My points widget

Now you can add My Points widget to inform your users about current prediction stats on any site page. League on the fly option allows showing the stats for league that you browse. (widget defines the league automatically).

Major usability issues

We paid a lot of attention to product usability this time. We introduced login url option so you can configure what link shall be displayed for unregistered site visitors. Same option is available for private league button (pro version). Navigation between the rounds is improved. Your own user is highlighted on leaderboard even if you have it out of the first page. Prediction league column has been added to the round list.

Finally, we want to remind that our Prediction leagues WordPress plugin is deeply integrated with Statorium data service. You can have the public league stats delivered automatically to your site. Сoncentrate on playing predictions rather than managing league stats!

Download the free version from WordPress.org marketplace or contact us so we update your pro version and configure it for you. Enjoy!

Match analytics added to JoomSport

As a response for large number of request from our clients we have added analytics for future matches in JoomSport. This applies both for WordPress sport plugin (ver. 5.0) and Joomla extension (ver. 5.5) released.

The main objective of the new analytics offered is to help predicting on match outcome.

Before we start the development we have analyzed a lot of sports sites and analytics variations. Many of them offer a large amount of numbers but poorly squeezed data and we didn't want the same. We wanted to avoid overloading you with the useless numbers. Instead we have carefully selected the most important figures that might correlate with upcoming match outcome.

The new data blocks offered includes the three sections added to future JoomSport matches (fixtures status).

Season analytics

Season win / draw / lost numbers and last 5 matches blocks are offered with "All season games" OR "Home / away games" filter depending on where is the selected team plays. "Position" chart is only displayed for the seasons that are without knockouts or playoffs matchdays.

Averages analytics

For player / match events averages it is possible to set what kind of events do you need to display. Scores averages analytics offers you the three numbers for each team: scored, conceded and total. Again, season total and home / away filter is offered for both blocks.

Head to head analytics

Two blocks to analyze previous head to head game between opponents. All leagues and seasons are included. 10 games stats included inside the block.

See how the functionality looks like on our demo.

Thank you VERY much to all the bakers who supported us financially with this particular feature development! It would be impossible to deliver all that functionality without you. Special thx to Yannis (Sentragoal), Roberto (ESM), Aldi (Universfootball), Juan Luis (Quesomecanico)!
