Soccer Live Scores
Soccer Live Scores is a new WordPress plugin that allows you to include live soccer scores in your posts, pages and custom posts.
This plugin uses the latest AJAX technologies to retrieve live the results that you add in the back end of your website and is able to update them in few seconds.
If you want only to show the results of a match without updating in real time the scores and the events ( for example if you are going to create a match review ), Soccer Live Scores can also be used without the AJAX functionalities as a static element not updated in real time.
Create your first match
After installing this plugin you will be able to create your first match through theMatches menu, you have simply to enter the following informations:
- Team 1 name
- Team 1 icon (optional)
- Team 1 color (optional)
- Team 2 name
- Team 2 icon (optional)
- Team 2 color (optional)
- Match Status: Set Live for real time results or Inactive for a static match not updated in real time with ajax
- Live Message: This is a message displayed only when the match status is set to Live
Your first match has been created, you can now add events for this match.
Click on Edit under the Events column, you are going to enter in the Events menu, here you can add events related to the selected match. To create an event you should provide the following informations:
