What it does:
At a high level, FFPlayerStatus gathers information about your fantasy league and uses it to inject HTML into webpages that allows you to see a player's status without needing to look at your league. Take a look at the screenshot below:
The plugin now works for both ESPN and Yahoo leagues.
How to use it:
When you install the plugin, a settings page will load. You'll also notice a new icon beside the URL input. You can click that and hit Settings on the window to reach the same page.
On the settings page, there are 3 important inputs:
This is how the plugin knows where to get its information. All you need to do here is to paste your 'My Team' URL.
i.e. if you're looking at your roster, right-click on 'My Team' towards the top, Copy link address, and paste it into the box.
Your URL should follow the pattern of: http://games.espn.com/ffl/clubhouse?leagueId=XXXXXX&teamId=X&seasonId=2016 with numbers instead of X's
After you've put your URL in, you should see your team's name show up in the table below, meaning the plugin is working.
Important things to note:
- Nothing works without at least one team input
- You can input multiple teams, just follow the same steps for each team
Sometimes I don't want the plugin to add hover popups on certain pages. If you enter a term here, it will prevent the plugin from running on any page with that term in the URL.
So, for example, if I put 'reddit' in there, it won't load for any reddit page. However, if I put 'reddit.com/r/nfl', annotations will still show on other subreddits.
3) Custom Mappings
We love our nicknames and I wanted to be able to still get the same functionality when someone says "Big Ben" instead of Ben Roethlisberger. So, this is where you can setup your own personal mappings. Hit Add, type a nickname into the left box, and search for the player in the right box. When both fields are filled, the mapping should start working the next time you load a page.
Keep in mind... I wanted to make this fairly static once you input something. So, after you click out of a box, that field is set. You can remove the entire mapping, but you can't go back in to edit the field.
- Players with the same name (looking at you, David Johnson) may show the incorrect player
- RES and other infinite scrolling sites doesn't render the plugin on new content
