How to Create a League Points Table Using Ninja Tables
Ninja Tables can be used to create a Sports League Points Table that can be managed easily. To do so, all you have to do is to create the Team names and add or edit their cumulative performances in the rows assigned to the teams. As an example, we will be showing here how a user can create a Points Table for English Premier League (Soccer) here.
1. Go to Ninja Tables from your WordPress admin panel sidebar and click on “All Tables“, then click “Add Table“.
2. Name and describe the table.
3. Name and define the columns. Make sure you define which column will house what kind of values. That is columns like “matches played“, “Points” etc should be defined as Numeric Values; and columns such as, “Team Name” should be defined as Single Text Line Field, or Text Area or HTML Field.
4. As you finish creating columns, now let’s move on to create rows. To create rows, go to the “Table Rows” tab, and click “Add Data“.
5. Input adequate data in specific row cells under specific columns, and click on “Add” to complete the row.
6. Once the rows are created, go back to the “Table Configuration” tab to fine tune your table.
7. You can configure and customize your tables in many possible ways using Ninja Tables. But as we are talking about League Points Table, and usually these tables are exhibited in a certain order, we suggest you to select the “Points” column in your Data Sorting option and select the sorting type in “Descending Way“. This way, your table will organize itself by keeping the team with the highest point on the top, and the one with the lowest point in the bottom.
8. Customize your tables further and make them more user-intuitive by tweaking the Table Configurations.
9. Once the customization is done, click on the “Update Configuration” to save settings. Now copy the table shortcode by clicking on it. Paste the shortcode on the page/post you would like to exhibit the points table on.
