Posting Event Results

Creating Event Results

Upload the event to Winsplits and/or Splitsbrowser and/or Routegadget. Make a note of the IDs for all of these – displayed in the URL in each case.

Create a new blog post. Tick the event report box.

Upload the results as attachments to the blog post. Link to the index page of the results, within the blog post. Also add links to Winsplits, Splitsbrowser, Routegadget and Attackpoint as appropriate. This final step will be automated, eventually.

N.B. If adding Autodownload results, you’ll need to add these in a subfolder, to prevent name duplication.
(Update Nov18 (PS) – except for the most technical admin, users are unaware of sub-folders and this happens under the covers if you create the blog post, categorise it as “event report” and then “add media”.)

  • Winsplits: go to Winsplits Online and click on Upload Split Times. Choose “IOF XML” as the file format, and on the next screen enter your e-mail address and upload the “{event} Routegadget.xml” file. Confirm that the results summary looks correct and proceed to the splits page to get the hyperlink.
  • Splitsbrowser: go to the Splitsbrowser add event page and enter the details. The file format is “SportIdent CSV” and the file is “{event} OE file.csv”.
  • Routegadget: go to the Routegadget sign-in page and enter the club’s username and password (from Paul Nixon, Ollie O’Brien or Angus Lund). Choose add a new map and IOF-XML as default formats. Upload the blank map, the “{event} Routegadget file.xml” (for splits) and “{event} coursedata.xml”. Provided the file checks are OK, proceed to adjust the control locations on the map.
  • Attackpoint: e-mail the two files “{event} o_coursedata.xml” and “{event} OE file.csv” to Angus Lund who has permission to upload them to Attackpoint. He will send back the relevant URL.

Use the event database (Tools – > SLOW Event DB), and search for the event.
Update the event by adding in the URL to your new blog post, and also add in the IDs.
Once done, check the event results link now appears on the front page of SLOWeb and on the general Results page.

Event Results – Updating

If you need to repost the events results, first update them on Winsplits/Splitsbrowser/Routegadget if necessary. In all three cases it is recommended to update the existing data rather than uploading new data, as otherwise people may inadvertently access the old links. It also means that old links to the old data in Facebook, Twitter etc, will remain valid.

If replacing an uploaded results file, or set of results file, delete the existing files before uploading the replacements – otherwise the (same-named) replacements will have a -2 appended to their URL.
