Like any other WordPress post, Competitors can be created, edited, and deleted.
Creating an individual Competitor is typically not done, however. This is because Competitors are most of the time automatically generated when creating a Competition.
Editing a Competitor
To edit a Competitor, go to a Competition post and find the Competitors listed in the Ranking meta-box.
In this example, the League has four Competitors: *.c0 up to *.c3. Click on the first Competitor and the Competitor’s post is displayed (in a new tab).
You can enter the following information for a Competitor.
Any post in WordPress has a title. Enter the Competitor’s name, a team name. The name that will show up in rankings and Matches.
- Fields (Competitor Data)
This is the record for an individual Competitor. The radio button is used for selection of the type of Competitor. There are three types:
The Competitor is an individual Member of your club. Use the drop-down list to select this Member.
- “Team Name”
The Competitor is a team of Members of your club. Insert the team’s name in the text field. After saving the Competitor, Team Players can be assigned to the team.
The Competitor is someone (or a team) that is external to your club. Enter a (team) name.
A Competitor participates in a Competition. A Competitor can be marked as being disqualified: all Matches in which the Competitor competed are skipped when computing a ranking.
(Note: the ‘Disable Ranking’ option is specific to the League format.)
- Categories, content, featured image
Save the entered data (and close the browser tab to return to the Competition post; continue editing the remaining Competitors).
