Hospedagem WordPress com plugin Football Pool

Onde hospedar o plugin Football Pool?

Este plugin pode ser hospedado em qualquer hospedagem que possua WordPress instalado. Recomendamos fortemente utilizar uma empresa de hospedagem de confiança, com servidores adaptados para WordPress, como o serviço de hospedagem da MCO2.

Hospedando o plugin Football Pool em uma empresa de hospedagem confiável

A MCO2, além de configurar e instalar o WordPress na versão mais nova para seus clientes, oferece o WP SafePress, um sistema singular que protege e aumenta a performance do seu site simultaneamente.

Por que a Hospedagem WordPress funciona melhor na MCO2?

A Hospedagem WordPress funciona melhor pois a MCO2 possui servidores otimizados para WordPress. A instalação de WordPress é diferente de uma instalação trivial, pois habilita imediatamente recursos como otimização de imagens e fotos, proteção da página de login, bloqueio de atividades maliciosas diretamente no firewall, cache avançado e HTTPS ativado por padrão. São plugins que potencializam seu WordPress para a máxima segurança e o máximo desempenho.

This plugin adds a fantasy sports pool to your blog. Visitors of your website can predict outcomes of matches and earn extra points with bonus questions. Every player can view scores and charts of the other pool contenders.

This plugin installs some custom tables in the database and ships with match information for the FIFA 2022 World Cup, but it can be easily populated with the match info for other championships or sports. Please note that deactivating this plugin may also delete all the plugin’s data from the database, so please make sure the ‘keep data on uninstall’ option on the settings page is enabled if you don’t want to lose your data (it is enabled by default since version 2.3.1).

I originally coded this pool in PHP as a standalone website for the UEFA 2000 championship and rewrote the damn thing several times for every European Championship and World Cup since. Every year I added new features. In 2012 I decided to rewrite it as a WordPress plugin and uploaded it to the plugin directory. I hope you like it.

A special thank you to all the users of the plugin that donated some money! And also to the translators that found time to translate the many labels in this plugin. And thanks to all the users that reported bugs and helped improving the plugin.

Características

  • Users can predict match outcomes.
  • Automatic calculation of the pool ranking. Or define your own custom ranking for a group of matches.
  • You can add bonus questions for extra fun (single answer and multiple choice).
  • Add your own teams and match info to use the plugin for another (national) competition.
  • Import or export the game schedule.
  • Automatic calculation of championship standing.
  • Configurable scoring options.
  • Use the built in pages and/or shortcodes to add the pool to your blog.
  • Use different leagues for your users (optional).
  • Users have charts where their scores are plotted over time. And they can compare themselves to other players. (Only available if Highcharts chart API is downloaded separately, see Help for details).

  • Extra info pages for venues and teams.
  • Add your own functionality via filters and actions (see help page in the admin or this post in the forum for some examples).

Documentation
The plugin has a help file in the admin that contains a lot of information. But if you like a step by step tutorial, I can recommend the following: Janek from WP Simple Hacks website made a very nice guide about my plugin. It even has a video where he explains how to set up the plugin.

Other things

  • This plugin requires WordPress 4.8 or higher, PHP 7.4 or higher and jQuery 1.4.3 or higher.
  • If you want to use the charts feature, please download the Highcharts API (see “Installation” or the plugin’s Help page in the WordPress admin for details).

If you find bugs, please contact me via the support forum. If you like the plugin, please rate it on the plugin page on WordPress.org.

Please read the information on the website carefully if you want your translation work to be reviewed and approved: After your contribution.

A big shout-out to all the translation contributors and editors that helped translating the plugin so far. Thank you!
