I’ve been using e107 to run my football website for over a year and one of the things I’ve spent quite a lot of time looking for it a league table plugin for it, but after much googling and searching of forums I couldn’t find anything, and so just had a link forward to the league website and its league tables, but this wasn’t exactly what I wanted.
It seems that there’s quite a few people out there who may also be interested in a league table for their site and so I’m gonna tell you about it here.
I came across a programme called tplLeagueStats which can generate league, form, and statistics tables, and looking at the example on their site I thought I’d give it a go. The fact that it’s released for free under the GNU/GPL license also helped make up my mind.
tplLeagueStats software is the perfect answer for webmasters running both professional and amateur soccer sites on a .php enabled server. Using a MySQL backend the program is fully featured and can be used to generate League, Form & Stats Tables.
With the files uploaded to my server, and the editing of a php file to include my MySQL database information, I just had to navigate to an installer page and then I was ready to rock and roll and start with the data input, in my case adding all the results for last season to create a complete table for the division my football team play in.
The end result was this page which was exactly what I wanted but was still on a separate page and so I needed to find a way to incorporate it into the site, and this was done by installing the e107 plugin called Wrap v0.9.2 which allows you to ‘wrap’ specified web pages into your template and you can see it all working here.
Update: I no longer use e107 anymore so a lot of this information is outdated.
