  Web site fixture season dates
by: mystick, 11-09-2019 07:47 PM (#1)

Hi

This post would be for someone who looks after the local league websites:

With respect to the Livingston & District league website does anyone know who would be able to extend the year date field for the league table, create fixtures drop down menu to cater for dates from 2020 onwards at present 2019 is the last available year pick..

Thanks,

Regards
Stephen Kynoch

I'm not exactly sure what the problem could be, but without admin access to the site I can't have a look into it for you guys.

What I have done in the meantime though is raise a ticket with the hosting company for their input also.

I've replied to you Stephen... the hosting company can't help... and access to the Livingston site is not needed... the results/tables software needs updating.

Thanks Bill. I had surmised that the hosting company would not be able to assist but thought I'd cheekily ask them on the off chance a technical guru may help. Hopefully you're vast knowledge and expertise can assist the gentlemen.

It really needs to be done by whoever is administering the hosting account... File Transfer Protocol is needed to access whatever the Donhost account is for that table/results web page.
Then the relevant php files can to be downloaded, edited and then uploaded again.

FTP access is required for the Donhost account 'livitab' subdomain livingston.scotpool.net to gain access to the files and edit them.

Just for info... unfortunately it looks like Uddingston, Motherwell and West of Scotland Snooker will eventually be affected also, which is a pity.

For example the 4 or 5 league tables used by...

Just that the results/tables software currently used will eventually need to be updated as mentioned above... or start using alternative scoring software/app.

No idea how the software works when setting new season up, but is it possible that you can start a new season using ‘Inspect Element’ using Chrome on a laptop/pc? You can change or add to the available options on there. Once set it may still actually save on the system

Hi Dave, some live editing is possible using the Chrome inspector tool, but not only does the content of 2 or 3 program files need changed but any changes made are not saved to the server.

If someone did manage to work out what editing was needed, whenever the page was closed or reloaded all changes would be gone.
Changes couldn't be saved like that to the host server of course or everyone would be editing other folk's websites willy nilly.

It's a good software development tool though... not that I've used it much myself other than to mess about with the appearance of web pages.

The software's php files really need to be downloaded onto a PC, changes saved using a text editor and then files uploaded again.
FTP password and various settings all need sorted out first though.

I first uploaded that software around 2008 and set the operational years up to 2020... obviously not thinking ahead Sad
I don't have anything to do with the SPA web hosting now of course... I'm just commenting because I've had a few messages asking about using the software.

It was used by dozens of leagues at one time, including primitive attempts at live scoring... http://grslider.s...hpool.net/

Time to move on probably... many archived tables are still there to view of course dating back over 10 years.
They won't be there indefinitely though which is one reason why I copied and pasted all past results and tables from those web pages onto spreadsheets for the Dunfermline league... though I'm not sure whether they have kept them.

Although about 90% of the SPA web accounts are no longer used (and could probably be deleted) there are still a few old pages just about hanging on.
Like this one from the 2008 'Festival of Pool'... http://festival.s...hpool.net/
