What is Sports Bench?
Sports Bench is a WordPress plugin and theme that helps you create a website for your sports league. You enter in teams, players and stats and it takes care of the rest for you — from the standings to the stats to even a cool scoreboard. It’ll make your league look cool with minimal effort.
What Sports Bench Can Do
Display upcoming, current or completed games with an easy-to-use scoreboard. You can create a separate scoreboard page with only the need to call one function, or you can add a scoreboard bar to the top of your header.
Show who’s the best in different statistical categories with Sports Bench’s stats leaderboard. Simply select which stats you wish to show and they’ll show up on the page. The stats show the top ten players, but users can load more for each stat with a simple click.
Sports Bench makes it easy for you to have a centralized location for each team in the league with team pages. If you’re using the Sports Bench theme, this requires no setup. But even if you’re not, our functions and guides will have you setup with a team page template that will match your theme in no time.
Sports Bench comes in two components: a plugin for the sports functionality and a theme to display your league’s information.
Sports Bench Plugin Integration
The Sports Bench theme is designed and coded with the Sports Bench plugin in mind. While the theme works on its own like any other WordPress theme, it works best with the plugin. This is perfect for users with no coding experience as everything has already been taken care of. Simply activate the theme and plugin, setup the plugin options and you’re on your way.
Readers won’t have to go very far to find your stories when they come to your website. In addition to showing your latest posts, you can also add tabs for selected categories so readers can peruse them without leaving the homepage.
Longform Post Template
Have a special story that you want to tell in a special way? Sports Bench makes that easy with the longform feature. Select the longform post template in the “Post Attributes” section of the post editor to see your story displayed in a unique way.
