Posting Event Results

Creating Event Results

Upload the event to:
Winsplits and/or
Splitsbrowser and/or
Routegadget and/or

Make a note of the IDs for all of these – displayed in the URL in each case.

For a Level C or higher race there is also a load to British Orienteering.

Create a new blog post, and…

Tick the event report box.

Upload the results as attachments to the blog post.

Update April19 (PS): –

Results files from SI Autodownload do not include event specific names: files are index.html file and stage1_coursename_course.html etc.  This means we have dozens of files with the same name.  It is best for each set of results files to go in a separate directory/folder and the way to do that is to load them when editing the post, not via the  Media Library.

Should you need to add multiple results files to a post it is well done by editing the post, select the whole lot of files in Windows Explorer, and drag and drop the set into the post. The system pops them in one by one with an address:

http: //  / wordpress / wp-content / racereports / postname / files / filename.filetype

So the files are attached to the post rather than going in the general media area
http: // / wordpress / wp-content / uploads / files / filename.filetype

The system does spot if there is already a file of that name, and it automatically handles by adding -1 etc (I think) e.g. index-82.html

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.
    The files needed for Routegadget are:
    1. The results
    2. The course descriptions in XML
    3. A blank map in either jpeg or gif.
    4. In addition something to locate two well-separated controls correctly is needed. This is usually an all controls map but could be a paper copy of a long course.

  • 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.
