Tournaments script information

52 replies • Last post
Click to show this thread's original post ▼

So, you would like to add a casino tournaments monitor to your website that looks a bit like this? It's easy and free!

casino tournaments list

How do you get it?

  1. Register a Casino Listings user account and confirm the registration email.
  2. Log in and go to your account settings by clicking your user name at the top of the screen (left of the search box).
  3. Click on the "Webmaster Settings" tab and enter your details.
  4. The affiliate URLs and scripts tabs should become available after saving your details and you can follow the instructions from there.

Using your own affiliate URLs
Our tournaments script allows you to insert your own affiliate URLs, and you can restrict the list to only show casinos for which you have provided an affiliate URL if you like. It is also intelligent enough to work out that if a tournament is held at multiple different casinos and you only have an affiliate URL for one of them, then it will use the casino with your affiliate URL.

Customising the stylesheet
We have provided a couple of stylesheets to get you started. All major html elements are classed so that you can easily alter their appearance according to your own site's style and tastes. If you want to modify the css, just copy one of our examples and make whatever changes you want.

Translating the text
See here: Translations added to tournaments script.

We just added Club World tournaments a couple of days ago.
They will appear in your script if you enter an affiliate URL for "Club USA Casino" in the webmaster settings of your profile.

We're still thinking about what to do with the other RTGs because none of them offer an xml script so we have to add everything manually and every casino has their own tournaments so adding them all would make the list several hundred tournaments long.

Hey Guys any way to add a target="_blank" so that if someone clicks on one of the links in the monitor it opens in a new page.

Thanks

Hi lenny1220, good idea - we just added it to the page where you set your aff URLs.

I switched it on for you and tested your page and its working so you don't have to do anything.

THanks Ed Appreciate it.

One more question/request

Dont know if i should open a second account or if theres another way to do it. As of now i have the next 12 listed on my home page, But i also want to put the script on an inner page showing the next 50. Is there a way to do this by changing the code, or do i have to set up a second account.

Thank you , going to add it to a few more sites in the future

Ok we just added the ability for you to override your account's default row limit by appending &rows=50 to the end of the script's query string (you can use any number there instead of 50).

If you have not specified a number (which will be everyone that uses the script up until now) then the row limit from your account settings page will apply.

Also make sure you add it to the end not the start - as the script needs the jumble of letters and numbers to identify you and it expects it to be first.

This is an example of what it should look like (remember every account's identifier is different so don't copy this directly):

Before:
tournaments.php?pXka34A%27KmQfiqj01XSCaQ%3D%3D

After:
tournaments.php?pXka34A%27KmQfiqj01XSCaQ%3D%3D&rows=50

We have added the ability for you to filter the tournaments list. Similar to the rows restriction above, you just need to append a parameter to the query string like so:

Before:
tournaments.php?pXka34A%27KmQfiqj01XSCaQ%3D%3D

After:
tournaments.php?pXka34A%27KmQfiqj01XSCaQ%3D%3D&filter=slot

The filter is applied to the tournament name and/or game description. Here are some suggestions:

  • &filter=slot - only include slot tournaments
  • &filter=blackjack - only include blackjack tournaments
  • &filter=video+poker - only include video poker tournaments (use a + character for any spaces)

This allows you to filter the list on different pages of your site. For example you might like to have a slots tournament page as well as a separate blackjack tournaments page.

Hello and thanks for the script!

I use your list here, and I made the translation...

Could you help me to make it to sortable?

Thanks in advance!

Looks good bankrobbantas!

What we use on our own site to make the tables sortable is this:
http://tablesorter.com/docs/

But it requires the use of jquery which not all sites support and we did not want to introduce a dependency like that into our script.

So if you want to use jquery and the tablesorter plugin you can. You should just need to add the scripts to your page and make sure you initialise them after our script loads the data into the table.

Hi Ed, Just started using wordpress to make some mini sites, trying to add the script to one of them, but cant seem to figure out how to adjust the width. Can you let me know if theres a way to do this. This is the page im having problems with . i tried adjusting the width a few different ways but none of them worked.

Ah ok I can see the problem. In your wordpress theme there is some CSS that applies to elements with a class "date". The problem is that our table has some columns with class "date" and it is conflicting.

This is the problem in your CSS:

.date {
float: left;
width: 600px;
font-size: 12px;
margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
}

See how it is trying to set the widths of the columns to 600px each, and also making them float left?

I would fix it by changing the first line there to:

p.date, div.date {

Then it will only apply that CSS to paragraphs and divs on your pages and not table cells. I tried to find an example where it was used on your site but couldn't find a date anywhere, but it is likely that when it is written it will use a P or DIV.

Thank you very much for this, it's not exactly what I was looking for when I found this page, it's 10 times better than what I had in mind.

Cheers!

Hi Ed! Thanks a lot for this tournament script, it's an amazing tool for webmasters.

I'm currently implementing it on my French casino site and it works great but there's something I'd like to ask.

I'd like to display an excerpt on the home page of my site (only 5 tournaments). I see I can do that by using the filter for rows, but I wanted to ask if there's also a filter for columns as I'd also like to display less columns just on that particular page. I saw the ticking boxes on the webmaster page but the problem is that it changes the columns display for the whole script.

Thanks again for the awesome script and your support!

Thanks pheal. Off the top of my head I don't know the answer to that one.
I'll have to find out for you, and if not see if we can't add an option to let you control it on a page by page basis like the rows.

Yes I have confirmed that you can't do it as yet, but we'll look into adding an option to allow you to control it page by page.

Hi,

Thank you very much for this tool.

I wanted to ask if it's possible to filter specifically for US?

Hi there, sorry I have been off camping for a few days. You can't set an single option to include only U.S. friendly tournaments, but I think that you can accomplish it by only entering affiliate urls for the U.S. facing programs.
