Add Players 3 and 4 to the Game Finder [Done]

Postby chipv on Mon Jun 16, 2008 12:55 pm

Concise description:
Add Players 3 and 4 to the Game Finder

Specifics:
Add 2 more text boxes to enable people to type in 4 player names

<div class="field-row">
<label class="field-label" for="player3">With Player</label>
<input type="text" class="field" name="player3" id="player3" maxlength="16" value="" />
</div>
<div class="field-row">
<label class="field-label" for="player4">And Player</label>
<input type="text" class="field" name="player4" id="player4" maxlength="16" value="" />
</div>

PHP will need to modified to accept the 2 new parameters and return correct game list with new criteria.
(At present will only search for 2 players)

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
Enables users to search specifically for any team combination including Quadruples teams

In fact - allowing dynamic adding of all the player boxes would be good...

(Of course player 3 & 4 are the most necessary - so that you can recreate teams)

What would also be good - is if you could mark as with/against - so you could search for all your games "with" partners - or against opponents?!

Yeah this doesn't sound like it would be that hard to implement and it would be really effective. Do it.

I'd also like 3 and 4 players...maybe even a " -<player name>" also to search for games where a certain player is excluded from the results.

I like the dynamic idea. Maybe if you write in one player's name a new line appears with a text box for the second player, and so on. This may be harder to code, but would be very efficient.

OOh - good option... so the drop down could be [All | With | Against | Exclude]

This would mean that you could legitamately have more than 8 player boxes too.

The "with player <name>" fields are now at the bottom of the Game Finder page.

I'll let chipv - the author of MapRank - know that lack's changed the page format.

Check in the MapRank thread for updates.
