Competitors plugin manual

This is a plugin for every installation of WordPress which uses a fairly upgraded, less than 5 years old, version of server software. Upon request you can have more details but nothing will break if you try to install it. It has the usual “one-click-install” and uninstall of WordPress.

  1. Once installed, you need to go to “Competitors settings” in the admin menu and write a few roll names for test.
  2. You can use WordPress shortcodes. They are a convenient means to show functionality on any page of your WordPress site. For this plugin, they look like the below for the public competitors scoring display and registration form. You can have them on separate pages for live use but on the same page for testing. They will work either way.
  3. Now when you have a few rolls registered in Admin > Competitors settings, you show the Registration Form on a page, you need to register a competitor, like Jar Jar Binx for example 🙂 Choose which rolls Jar Jar will perform and go to the WP Admin > Competitors settings and give him some scores.
  4. Please also check the Timer. It’s in Javascript and you may in rare cases need to allow Javascript on the computer, which the Admin (or Judge) is using.
  5. In the WP Admin you now choose a competitor, click the green Start button, give the ompetitor some scores and save. You will occasionally see a pesky spinner and overlay to remind you of the timer. You will have a list in the admin and on the page(s) where you put in the shortcode(s). The timer warns at 15 and 25 minutes and you will not miss those marks.
  6. Remember, this is intended for live use! Once you click on another competitor in the Admin as a “Judge”, the timer resets. You also have a Reset button if you need it. Normally, only the (green) Start/Pause button will be used.
  7. At the registration there is a list of checkboxes for rolls. A competitor can uncheck rolls which they will not try to perform. The rolls they uncheck will be grayed out but fully functional for the judges if the competitor decides to perform those rolls anyway. This is for better communication and make for a more interesting competition with less downtime between competitors.
[competitors_scoring_public] and [competitors_form_public]

This is how the above shortcodes look like on a page. The page will to some extent inherit your site’s design.
