Frequently Asked Questions
Does Sports Bench support multiple sports on the same site?
Sports Bench only supports one sport on a site at the same time. That’s just how the plugin is written. If you would like to show multiple sports, you could create a WordPress Multisite install, with a different sport on each subsite (similar to the demos).
Why is Sports Bench split into a plugin and a theme?
In the WordPress ecosystem, plugins should add functionality and themes should only add designs. For Sports Bench, the theme only adds a design to the website, while the plugin adds all of the sports league functionality. That way, if you ever want to change your theme or create a custom theme, you can do so without losing any of your sports data.
Is the Sports Bench plugin compatible with my theme?
Ideally it should be compatible with your theme. But that is also dependent on how your theme is created. If the theme is built up-to-WordPress standards (which includes any themes in the WordPress theme directory), then you shouldn’t have any issues. But the theme isn’t built right, you might run into issues.
I want to extend the plugin to match what I need. How do I do that?
Sports Bench already does a lot of what you need for your website. But if you need to extend it even further, be sure to check out the Documentation for the classes, functions and filters you need to customize the plugin.
