New Invictus Racing League Site – Features

Events

Create an event for each race, all the races then get displayed in the sidebar of the site for everyone to see.

Tables

Probably my favourite feature on the whole site. No need to use any Excel spreadsheets and then take pictures of them anymore. Just put the table up on the site and then ANY ADMIN can update the table. So, if the person who is supposed to update them is busy for a week someone else can jump in and update them. You do not need to take pictures of the table, once you update it on the WordPress dashboard it should automatically update on the site.

Forums

We have included a forum on the new site. The forum has the usual features that you would have in a forum and some other stuff. All the forums can be found from the nav bar at the top of the page or the sidebar. The sidebar will also display the most recent posts on the forum.

Groups

Another feature of the new IRL site is groups. You are able to create a group of users on the site and then you can create a forum or blog specifically for these users. This is great for the admins and for admin discussions. It could also be used to create a group for all the drivers within a specific league.

Sliders

On the site you are able to add sliders into your posts. Sliders are basically elements that cycle through a series of images.

Polls

You are able to create your own polls and put them straight into the forum, the blog or any other pages. You can also view stats for all the different polls.

Ratings

On any blog post, page or comment you are able to rate it out of 5. At the moment we do not have this on the forum but it would be something we look at doing in the future.

Twitter In Sidebar

One of the big things that we wanted on the previous site was the ability to have our latest tweets in the sidebar but now we have it! On the right hand side of most pages you will be able to find some of the most recent tweets from the IRL twitter account.

Blog

One of the biggest features of this site is our new blog! Basically, the home page to our site is a blog. This means after each race someone could create a blog post with a race report within it and maybe some race highlights. This post will then be displayed on the home page for everyone to see! You could also incorporate the driver of the day polls straight into these blog posts.
