A team page can be created on sites that are specific to a particular team or connected to a League through League Management. Team pages include a number of advanced, sport-specific features including season and subseason support, roster, player profile, game schedule, game views, statistics, team stat leaders, and standings if the team page is integrated with League Management. Team pages also include the ability to attach news articles and calendar events to the team.
Step One: Access the SportsEngine site you wish to create a page for, and for which you have a Webmaster or Page Owner level of access.
Step Two: Log in with your SportsEngine Account.
Step Three: Toggle the site into Edit Mode.
Step Four: Navigate to the area of the site in which you’d like to add the page.
Step Five: On the top left portion of the screen, under the header of Current Section, select the yellow Add New Page option. (Or select the Edit Top Nav button to add a page to the top navigation.)
Step Six: Select a Page Type of Team Page.
Step Seven: You will then be brought to an Add New Team Page screen, where you can enter the following information. Note that the Name, Short Name, Team Abbreviation, Primary Color, and Secondary Color are required to create the page. (Season Name, Subseason Name, and Select Sport for League fields only if creating a solo team.)
- Page Template
- Short Name.
- Team Abbreviation. A six character of less version of the team name.
- Team Gender. Male or Female.
- Show League Scores on Home Page Scoreboard?
- Primary Color.
- Secondary Color.
- Logo to Upload. It is recommended that the logo be 200px high by 600px wide. Because of the particulars of SportsEngine user interface, all uploaded images are resized and cropped to a height-to-width ratio of 1-to-3, so starting with an image that fits those dimensions will result in the best-looking logo possible.
- Page Display Status (for which there is a drop menu). This is where you make a page viewable to public users after you are finished creating it.
- Page Columns. The option of a second column provides the page with a sidebar for easy navigation to other pages.
- Cache Timeout (for which there is a drop menu). Users’ web browsers will save information from the page. Setting the cache timeout will clear the saved data on the page and reset it for the users.
Step Nine: You will now have successfully created a team page.
