- This extension requires registration to download.
The package includes modules to help keep your site dynamically updated:
Win/Loss/Standings Module - can be configured multiple ways to use as simple W/L Module or Standings module.
Game Results Module - for showing x previous games and x upcoming games.
Stat Leader Module - configurable to show individual or team leaders in offensive and defensive categories.
There are lots of stats, with the ability to enter plenty of detail in game boxscores, including scores by quarter, scoring summary, team stats comparison, and individual player statistics including offensive and defensive stats, and special teams.
Various bug fixes and new features have been added since the original release, including the ability to turn on/off individual front-end admin functions, show English or Metric height/weight values, sort roster by name or jersey number, NFL or NCAA passer rating formula, and other options.
It takes a very long time to get support and my last few questions on the baseball extension went unanswered. Since I haven't heard anything on my "HIGH PRIORITY" ticket and their soccer extension, which they advertised as coming out in June, hasn't been released, I'm guessing this extension and the other Fastball Productions extensions are as good as they are going to get and if you can't fix them you're on your own.
I am an intermediate self-taught Joomla user and had no problems downloading the software, installing it, or even configuring it. I only had to cross reference the documentation a few times because everything is so easy to understand through the UI.
My client is delighted with their website and especially the features that are available with Gridiron.
The flexibility in setting up pages/menus, the ease of use of the administrator back end interface and the ability for site admins to make only the edits I allow them to through the front end (like managing schedules, adding teams, etc) allows me to control certain elements myself (as the webmaster) and my clients to be self sufficient in the areas of content management that I don’t need to be involved in.
Additionally, EVERY time I have submitted a request for information, not only do I receive an instant confirmation of the request, but the developer (Brook) emails me directly and helps me 1:1!
To have such a professional and high quality tool at my disposal but also the personal customer support touch is a rare combination.
I’m extremely pleased with Gridiron and feel fortunate to have found the perfect program for our needs. Well done, Brook! And thank you for all you do.
I would give a 5 star rating but there are a few tweaks needed that I have sent to the developer. For example being able to enter HTML in some fields, such as the Team profile/ Player Profile fields. Sortable columns in tables such as Roster would be a good feature to have.
It would also be quite useful to have a random Featured Player/ Coach module to compliment this very promising component.
Overall if you are looking to setup a league or team component for football, Gridiron Manager will streamline the process.
I can see the next version of the product being killer.
The latest update includes several new features, including ability to insert HTML into team and individual player pages.
