Question about how divisions and "child divisions" work??

Postby toddybob » Tue Jun 17, 2014 8:58 pm

I use Joomleague for ICE HOCKEY and I am having trouble figuring out how to use child divisions properly or at all, to be honest.

My situation: The league is divided into 2 MAIN divisions (by age group) U16 and U18.

Within each division are two conferences, east and west.

When I build the divisions in a "division league" and then add the conferences as children of the parent U16/U18 divisions and then assign a team to each conference within a parent division, nothing to seems to work as I would expect it to.

1) I cannot show a ranking table based on the parent division which, in theory, should encompass both child divisions. When I create the menu item for the ranking table, the only options presented to me are U16 West or U16 East - not the parent.
2) I have to create separate menu items for each "east/west" conference.
3) In the Ranking view setup, under division options
- Default: Project view
- Allow project ranking view: yes
- Allow sublevel 1 division view: yes
- allow sublevel 2 division view: yes

Ideally, I was hoping --- and expecting --- that I could display a ranking table for the Parent Division which would include both east and west conferences (subdivisions) and then, if I wanted to, I could create a U18 / East or west only view.

------

Am I looking a parent/child divisions wrong and assuming the wrong functionality for what they were built for or do I just have one of those view settings wrong?

Here's a link to one of the divisional standings pages

http://www.nationaljuniorhockey.com/u18-midgets/standings

And no, the divisions will not mix. The conferences within each division will. I was hoping that "child divisions" within a parent would somehow be separated or easily distinguished within the parent division or something.

Unfortunately, if I assign the teams to child divisions (in my case, conferences) then the standings bracket for the parent division goes blank. It's as if the system doesn't recognize that the conferences are sub-sets of a larger division.

I have experimented with the various display options on the "standings view" and nothing seems to display the way I want it or work how I thought it would/should.

As I remembered U can't get standing for the parent and child in ONE project.
I think even if U separate League to 2 projects (U16 and U18) it will be some problems.....
But sorry, I not tested it in JL2.x version.

Is this a feature request that could be possibly looked at for JL 3 or perhaps an update to 2.9x?

NO.
All this problems and Leagues organisation were solved long time ago (by me) as a Treerank extension (paid).
Treerank was developed as a JL1.6 version only.
Now I'm developing new extension (JL2.x): Truerank.
It will be ready .... when be ready. (1 month?)
I think about free demo site, where user could tested his leagues (projects).
