Installation

INSTALLATION NOTES

  • When upgrading the existing player data will not be deleted.
  • The plugin’s mstw_tr_styles.css stylesheet WILL be overwritten, so if you have modified that file, you may want to save it before installation, then put it back in place.
  • To support the (significant) refactoring of the code in version 3.0, some shortcode arguments and default Display Settings had to be changed. Therefore, it is possible that some customizations of existing Roster Tables via [shortcode arguments], default colors and other display settings, and so forth may have to be replaced. Existing arguments and parameters were preserved to the greatest extent possible, so mileage will vary depending on exactly what arguments and/or settings you were using.
