Implemented Manage Rankings Button on Main Page

    After playing with this, maybe it's just me, but when I go to manage my rankings I have to find the "Manage Ranking" button.

    I would love for this button to be displayed on the main page. An author may go to this section to read other rankings, but odds are they are going to play with their own rankings. So in order for them to do it, they have to click a few links to get the manage button.

    Or am I missing something?

    Maybe use the bd widget framework to display the button wherever you want?

    The only way to do this on the HOME PAGE would be to launch an overlay with a Ranking Chooser as each individual can have more than one ranking.

    This is what I've come up with and it seems to be an OK solution for a very complex multi layered issue.

    When a user is viewing the Power Rankings HOME page, the system will check to see if that viewing user has any VISIBLE Rankings (regardless of Sport or Season). If they have any rankings that they can manage, there will be a "Manage Ranking" button in the breadcrumbs.

    As you can see here, the viewing user has 2 buttons. This is because the user has existing Rankings, however, they don't have one for the default Season and Sport (which in this case is SPORT: NFL and SEASON: 2015 Pre Season), so the Create Ranking button displays giving them the option to create a Ranking for this Season/Sport.


    When you click on the 'Manage Ranking', it will launch an Overlay in which you are able to choose which of your Rankings that you want to Manage.


    This user only has 1 VISIBLE Ranking, so lets click on it and hit Continue....


    You will be taken directly to the "Manage Ranking" page.

    btw, if this works out for people, its pretty easy to add in other locations as well.

    I also added a "Your Rankings" Sub Navigation link that will take you to a page that will list ALL your rankings (regardless of Season and Sport).

    When you are viewing your OWN Author Rankings Page, you will have direct links "Manage Ranking" for each Ranking listed on the page (unless you don't have permission to manage a specific ranking of yours).

    NOTE: altho there are no built in navigation tools (yet), you can access any users "Author" page by appending their user_id to the URL.
