SportsPress for Football – How to Manage Clubs on the Frontend

This tutorial is part of a series of tutorials based on the SportsPress for Football plugin.

Note. We assume you are a user of the SportsPress for Football plugin and have it installed already.

In this post, we’ll show you how to manage SportsPress football clubs on the frontend.

This can be useful if you are creating a platform for your clients on which they can manage clubs, matches, events, leagues, etc., from the frontend. You can use the SportsPress for Football plugin behind the scenes, and your users won’t have to deal with wp-admin on the backend to manage everything related to their soccer events and matches.

To create the necessary frontend pages, we will use the WP Frontend Admin plugin. This plugin allows you to display any wp-admin page on the frontend with a simple click or by using a simple shortcode on any WordPress page builder.

Second, you can use any page builder to create your frontend pages. Here are some page builders that are compatible with WP Frontend Admin:

  • Elementor
  • Visual Composer
  • Gutenberg
  • Divi
  • Beaver Builder
  • WP Page Builder
  • Page Builder by SiteOrigin
  • Oxygen
  • Live Composer
  • Brizy
  • Etc.

Therefore, you can display the SportsPress football clubs on any page created with any of these page builders by using this shortcode:

[vg_display_admin_page page_url="edit.php?post_type=sp_team"]

Once you paste the shortcode, click Preview to view the football clubs on the frontend.

2- Start setting up your frontend SportsPress clubs page

WP Frontend Admin will display everything you need to configure your frontend pages in a simplified way on the Quick Settings panel on the left side of the screen.

You can start configuring your frontend clubs page by selecting the following information:

  • Page title: Enter the new page title here.
  • URL slug: Enter the URL slug using keywords only.
  • Page template: We’ll select the Default template to keep using our theme’s settings. If you select the template on a page builder, this value will be inherited.
  • Add page to this menu: Select the navigation menu where you want to add this page.

3- Remove any unnecessary elements from your frontend clubs page

WP Frontend Admin allows you to hide any unnecessary elements from your frontend pages to simplify the pages and remove all the fields and metaboxes that your users don’t need to create and manage football clubs on the frontend.

Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Click Hide element.
  2. Click the element you want to hide.

Keep in mind that you need to repeat these two simple steps with every element you want to hide from your frontend clubs page.

Also, you can toggle the Hide notices added by other plugins or themes checkbox to prevent users from seeing unnecessary elements that may appear in the future.
