The Plugin

Thanks for your interest in the “Sports Club Management” WordPress plugin!

I have created this plugin based on 10+ years of experience with ‘home crafted’ support for my own badminton club. Started writing code for managing the club’s member ‘in the cloud’ and added an invoice option later.

Things became more interesting for our members after I included team information, leagues and match calendars.

Having switched to WordPress for managing the club’s site, I started looking into porting the club’s data (member, competitions, etc.) to WordPress. And the first ideas of creating a plugin were there.

Having the plugin in use for almost 2 years, I decided to donate it to “the community” in February 2016. It’s such I great tool for our club, I’d love to see others enjoy using it too.

From the beginning, I had a couple of high level requirements in mind for the plugin:

  1. Must be able to have the features I was already using for years for my own club
  2. Must not restrict itself to one sport only; must be usable for as many sports as possible
  3. Must build upon WordPress and its features (do not invent wheels that WordPress already offers)

If you have any suggestions for improvement, questions on usage that are not covered in this site’s documentation, or like to contribute to the translation, just let me know!

If you like the plugin, don’t forget to rate it.

Fix for ShortCodes in version 1.12

Version 1.12 has been released. This contains a change in the implementation¬† of shortcodes; required to make it compliant to the WordPress standards and recommendations. If you’re using WordPress’s “do_shortcode(…)” function in your (child) theme, you should now use “echo do_shortcode(…)”. A small but essential change.

Shortcode for Member list has additional features

Release 1.11.1 is available now. It has a few additional features added to the scm_members shortcode: option to display a partial list based on Member category (instead of full member list) option to display a Member starting with first name (instead of name) option to overrule default sorting order
