In the previous article of the series we were talking about configuration options of our famous ScoreFrame.  Today you will learn more about choices you can made to adjust this minisite to your needs because what we care most about is giving the client a choice in as many aspects as possible. We simply understand that these days a product must be adjusted to the real needs of clients who are coming from very different areas of expertise or just different countries and cultures. We do know that for example in Norway, there is a lot more interest in winter sports such as ski jumping while a client from Spain would rather go for football (soccer) as this is the number one sport there.

We have prepared a template with a default setting. We took a lot care to adapt it in a very universal way to suit as many clients as possible from all over the world. However the main purpose of this article is to present every single part of ScoreFrame that can be changed by the clients in cases where the default setting is not what they are looking for.

Favicon and title

The product looks better in a browser when the page has a favicon and a title and that is why we suggest our clients send us the file and the information. This setting is visible on every page you visit. Preferable file for the favicon is a .PNG sized 16×16 pixels.

Favicon+Title

Languages

We offer a full package of languages, however if your website is dedicated for only one country you can always let us know (you may wish to have only one language).

ScoreFrame automatically adjusts the language of the website. The system tries to find the language of the browser and then sets the proper one on the website.

If the user picks the language by himself then this configuration will be saved in his browser and remembered afterwards for all other changes.

One of the languages needs to be chosen as the default one when you enter the site form a country thats language is not on offer in the ScoreFrame. Then the default language will be set. English is as default, however it can be changed on request.

The order for adjusting the website language is as follows:

  1. Language set by the user
  2. Language set by automatic adjustment (based on the browser’s language settings)
  3. Default language set by the system administrator

Time zones

There is a select tab with time zones in the header and the user’s browser will detect the proper time zone and set it automatically.

If the user picks the time zone by himself then this configuration will be saved in his browser and remembered afterwards for all other changes.

It is possible to define one time zone only. In cases where the product is dedicated for users from only one country, just hide the select tab, as it will now have no purpose.

Sports selection

Functionality and the look of the sports is very important for the website and we leave the final decision for this to the client.

  • Default sport on front page
  • The selection of a sport:

Option 1: Sports icon slider

You can choose one of the icon sets listed below:

ScoreCenter_IconSets.png

Option 2: Slider with the names of the sports

Slider.PNG

Option 3: Choose the name of the sport from the select menu

  • Order of sports on the list:
    • on slider (Option 1 and 2)
    • on a popup (Option 1)
    • under select (Option 3)

To sum up. Once you have made the choice of what sport to show on the front page you will have to decide whether you wish to have a slider with sport’s icons or take a more modest approach and add just a select tab with a list of sports.

Having made those two decisions it is up to you whether you go with our default setting for the list of sports or make a decision of your own. Under the slider and popup once you’ve picked Option 1, you can choose two different settings. If you decide to go with Option 2 then just let us know which sport’s first and complete the rest of the list till the very bottom.

To help you make good choices have a look at the list of default settings. Perhaps these are already fine with you.

  1. Soccer
