The new Live Scores shortcode

To improve the experience of our Statorium football API clients we designed the new live scores shortcode. The matches are grouped by leagues. Results are updated without the page reload!

Fully redesigned team moderating

We have designed completely new team moderators approach. It is done via new [jsModerator] shortcode that you can place on your site pages and let moderators do their actions without accessing the admin area.

You can also now connect the responsible team moderators to manage their selected teams. Green light for eSports teams using our plugin.

Permissions settings are very simple.

We are preparing for FIFA World Cup. So you will soon see more features connected to our Statorium football data service.

This time we have delivered the time ticker. It allows the customers who use our Statorium service to show the live match minute in different blocks and also on match page.

New icons, New stats on team page, Ability to order matchdays.

We have also added number of other improvements and features. You can order matchdays within one season if you filter view by season and add all items on one matchday page.

You can see the new stats (starting lineups, minutes played) on team page. The icons for stats were also updated.

The new release allows you to configure the match page title the way you like. So it improves your SEO as well.

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. –°lean, 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. –°oncentrate 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!
