Help - Add Competition Results

Competition Results

Competition Results can range from local club shoots to National (or even International) Competition Results, such as Bisley Nationals. Any number of categories can be added to the Results listing and it would be great to get a comprehensive catalogue of scores available of local shooters’ progress in the sport. Don’t think that your set of results isn’t important because all published results are!

The categories listed currently on the site aren’t exhaustive and without access to a number of archived results (when this was written) it’s not easy to create a list of categories that will be suitable for all scores and results. Therefore, if your required category isn’t listed, it’s simple to add another one or ask the Administrator to do so.

Dependent upon how many results are collected will be the length of time they are displayed on the website. Too many results will slow the site down so we’ll have to see how it goes over time.

You are at liberty to add the results to the page on the site or you can provide them in document format that can be downloaded to the viewer’s computer.

a. Adding Competition Results

Click on ‘Add Content to Website’ on main menu on left. Then click on the ‘Competition Results’ option.

Enter the ‘Title and Date of Competition’ at the top of the page in the box labelled thus.

Menu Settings: click on ‘Menu Settings’ below that to open those options up. In the ‘Menu Link Title’ box type in a brief title and date for the event the results are for, e.g. “Norman Cross Open 27/7/09”. Keep the menu links as short as possible as longer names wrap and make the menu untidy. Then, the important bit: below that is a drop down list entitled Parent Item. This is the heading under which you would like your results listed, e.g. Norman Cross Competitions. Click on the little downwards pointing arrow at the right of that box and in the list displayed find the main heading of and then click on –Norman Cross Competitions below that. Ignore the ‘Weight’ Box and the ‘Menu Item Attributes’ below that.

Then, in the ‘Description of Shooting Competition’ box, please type in there the details of the competition and any comments you want to make about it. You can copy and paste from another document into this box but remember that any formatting you used in the original document will be lost when you paste it. If you are familiar with html then you are perfectly at liberty to copy an html document into this box but will need to ensure that in the section below (Input Format) you have ‘Full HTML’ selected if your html has more components than those allowed in the ‘Filtered HTML’ option.

To find more information and help on formatting your text for these pages click on the ‘Input Format’ option below the ‘Details of Shooting Competition’ box and then click on ‘More Information about formatting options’. You shouldn’t need to change the settings from Filtered HTML to Full HTML unless you know what you are doing! REMEMBER: Keep it as simple as possible and that way you will feel less intimidated by the site!!

ATTACHMENTS: If you want to add your results as an attachment that viewers can download to their own PC then click on the ‘File Attachment’ option below. Where it says ‘Attach new file’ click on the Browse button and this will open up a window where you can locate and select the results file on your PC. The types of files that you can upload are listed on the site but you should find that you are unlikely to be using any other format to the ones listed. When you have selected your file click on the ‘Attach’ button. This will upload the file to the server. Once it is uploaded it will be listed with two check boxes to the left of it, labelled ‘Delete’ and ‘List’. You will need to click in the ‘List’ box or else the file will not be shown on your Results page! If you wish to add more files, you can do so by following the same procedure.

Remember that if you have photographs of events/competitions you can also add these to the list of files you upload.

COMMENTS settings: if you don’t want those viewing the results to leave comments on the page you have created then click on ‘Comment Settings’ and make sure that ‘Disabled’ is selected. If you are happy for people to comment then click on ‘Read/Write’.

AUTHORING INFORMATION: your name will automatically be entered into the ‘Authored by’ box but if you would prefer to not have your log in name there, then remove the name and leave it blank.

PUBLISHING OPTIONS: please ensure that ‘Published’ is checked or the page won’t be listed. If your results contain newsworthy information that will be of interest to the county then check the box labelled ‘Promoted to front page’. This option shouldn’t be selected for all results as this will make the front page too cumbersome and long.

You can then either Preview what you have entered or Save it straight away. Please be aware that you MUST save the page for it to be displayed!

b. Editing Competition Results

To edit any Competition Results that YOU have added you will need to be logged into your account. Simply click on the results you wish to edit in the Competition Results Menu. At the top of the page, in the centre, you will see some tabs, including View and Edit. Click on the ‘Edit’ tab and this will take you to the original page when you created your entry. You can make any changes you wish on that page. Be sure to save the changes you make.

If you wanted to change the file that was attached previously, you need to go the ‘File Attachments’ section and unselect the file that is listed. You can also delete that file if you no longer wish it to be listed. This will help clear the site of unwanted files. You can then upload new files if needed.

c. Delete Competition Results

To delete any Competition Results you have added simply select the result in the menu, click on the ‘Edit’ tab at the top of the page and then scroll to the bottom of the page. There you will find a Delete button. Click on that button and confirm that you wish to delete. This will delete all of your entry.
