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.
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!
