The default display settings for all the Team Rosters Tables [shortcode], Single Player (Bio) Pages, and Player Gallery (Taxonomy) Pages for all standings tables on a site may be set on the plugin’s Display Settings page.
NOTE: IN ORDER FOR THESE SETTINGS TO TAKE EFFECT, THE SPECIFIED ROSTER FORMAT MUST BE “CUSTOM” OR BLANK. If a specific format, such as “college”, “pro”, or “high-school” is specified, it will override these default settings. The [shortcode] arguments for individual tables also override these default Display Settings, allowing each team roster table to have a unique format.
The Team Rosters Display Settings Admin screen is shown below. It contains over fifty display controls organized into the three sections described below. More information on the defaults for the fields is provided on in the [shortcode] documentation.
Roster Table Column, Single Player and Player Gallery Data Field Settings
These settings provide control of the visibility of and label for each of the player data fields (columns in the table view). The only field that MUST be displayed is Name, but it can be relabeled as something else.
Roster Table Color Settings
These settings provide control of colors in the roster tables. They will override the default/generic settings in the plugin’s stylesheet (css/mstw-tr-style.css). However, each team’s roster table, single player profiles (bios), and player gallery may be still styled individually using the plugin’s stylesheet. See the examples on the MSTW plugin development page or read more about how to use the stylesheet.
Player Bio Page and Player Gallery Page Settings
More settings unique to the Single Player Bio pages and Player Gallery pages are provided here. Generally speaking, these pages share the same color scheme. Two important settings in this section are:
- Add Links to Player Bios. Adds links from the Player Gallery pages to the Single Player Bio pages. By default these links are NOT enabled.
- Player Photo Size. The player photo size defaults to 150×150 pixels. However this size may not work for all themes on all sites, so you can specify the photo size here. It need not be square, whatever works for your site is fine. HOWEVER, you should upload player photos of the size you specify here, or at least of the same aspect ratio, or you WILL get some distortion of the player photos.
