How To Publish Match Results

Match results are published as blog posts. If you do everything correctly as described in this document, your match results will appear on the event specific page (i.e. 3×1000 prone match results vs NorNev Tactical match results), they will appear as latest news on the home page, and they’ll be formatted for mobile friendly viewing as well as give the site a uniform and professional appearance.




Step 1: create a new blog post by clicking the “Posts” menu, followed by “Add New”







Step 2: Enter the title of the post. This should be the event’s name and the date it occurred. For example “3×1000 High Power Prone Match Results – 8/20/2016”




Step 3: Enter the date of the event into the blog post’s “publish date”. This will ensure that match results are listed in chronological order on the site. On the right side of the screen in the “Publish” panel, click the “Edit” link next to “Publish Immediately”.


Then enter the date of the match. After you enter the date, confirm your change by pressing “Ok” just below the date.



Step 4: Set the “category” of the blog post. Setting the category causes the post to appear on the event’s match result page. On the right side of the screen, find the “category” panel and check the box “match result” and the box for event type. In this example the event is the “3×1000 High Power Prone”.


Step 5: enter the match results into the body of the post.
Note, under this new method for entering match results, only enter one set of match results per post, unlike the old site where all results were entered into a single page. Type whatever you want, using whatever formatting you like, upload images from the match, etc. (see special instructions for creating tables for scores).


Special Instructions: Creating tables for match results

You can create tables simply and efficiently using a special “table” command entered as text into your match results. For example, to create a table that looks like:

competitor total place sq cr ch ra cy class class qualify cold bore hit
Dave Thompson 3 1 8 7 5 6 6 4  4 No
Tom Mangham 29 2 7 7 5 5 5 4  4 No
Chuck Neller 28 3 7 7 8 3 3 4  4 Yes
Dan Lindholm 23 4 8 2 4 4 5 4  4 No

Simply enter the follow text:

competitor, total, place, sq, cr, ch, ra, cy, class, class qualify, cold bore hit
Dave Thompson, 3, 1, 8, 7, 5, 6, 6, 4,  4, No
Tom Mangham, 29, 2, 7, 7, 5, 5, 5, 4,  4, No
Chuck Neller, 28, 3, 7, 7, 8, 3, 3, 4,  4, Yes
Dan Lindholm, 23, 4, 8, 2, 4, 4, 5, 4,  4, No

The magic is created by beginning the table with [table] and ending it with [/table]. Each line inside the table becomes a row and each comma creates a column. The first line is treated as “header” for the table. Remember, don’t use a commas in the text unless you want to create another column!

Additional Notes: Please don’t upload screenshots or images from your spreadsheet program. The data is completely inaccessible once its in image format which prevents us from migrating to alternative presentation formats in the future should we need to. If in doubt, just just enter as much of your match results as possible, save it as a draft, and then send me ( a spreadsheet with the results and I’ll be able add them for you.

Step 6: when you’re done making all of the edits, press the “Publish” on the “publish” panel to make you changes live. If you want to see what your post will look like, you can used the “Preview Changes” button on the “Publish” panel.

As a final thought, please keep in mind that you really can’t break anything when you’re creating new match results. If you find a mistake and want to fix it, just edit the match results and and press the “Update” button on the “publish” panel. And if you need assistance, send me a note ( and I can help fix your post.
