I am in the process of designing a website for a hockey team(more so the teams history).
I have collected all data needed, which in turn will continue to grow. I have been told that the easiest way to set up this information on Wordpress is through custom post types. To give you an idea of what some of the info that I have is I will explain.
Obviously with a teams history site I have all players and their stats, all coaches and their stats, all of the teams games played with results, whether it was home or away, win or loss etc. as well I have awards, team drafts, team records( fastest goals, most goals in a season by a player etc). With the team still existing the player list will continue to grow and infor will have to be updated regularly.
I would like to have site visitors to be able to sort through this info. ie on the players page the user would be able to sort through the players data with a search box or drop down to sort by position or season. The info would then show up dynamically in a table form on the front end (player page, coaches page etc)
I'm not so much having an issue with custom post types but is this the best way to go? I will have to re-enter the data that I have into custom post types for sure. Is there a step by step guide anywhere or some knowledge of getting this done)? I am new to this and have done quiet a bit of reading on topic. But still having problems completely understanding.
Thanks for any help
