  • Sports website theme/template

    I've been asked to put together a website for my local Rugby club and whilst Pitchero would be convenient, it looks a little expensive compared to other means of hosting a website.

    The content will include fixtures (not a league table), club information, player information and stats and a photo gallery.

    Any recommendations on who to hose (Squarespace, Wix, Wordpress etc) and/or any templates to use? SportsPress looks like a good option but is only a plug in and I've no experience building sites with Wordpress so I'm not sure how easy it will be to add in?

    I think I may leave this forum, it seems to be full of the village people.​

      Any of them are easy to learn. With Wix, you get their product branding all over the place, so I would normally avoid that.

      Wordpress is straightforward - if you don't know it inside out right now, then it's a good opportunity to learn..

        Wordpress is good, i have been setting up a website on there at the moment and its pretty easy to use.

        With my 123-reg domains and hosting you get the option to install a forum (phpbb) and also a blank website so you just fill in the blanks. Depends on how complex or custom you want to go.

          Wordpress is as easy as using Microsoft Office.

          Most hosting packages will have a one click installation for wordpress, and with your SportPress plugin, you should be able to instal it from within Wordpress itself.

          Then hop on over to themeforest and fine a look you like, purchase, upload and get filling in the blanks.

            Yeah just use Wordpress. It's stupidly easy to use.

            Joker: Simple machines is horrible. Why would you inflict that on someone?

              just done a site which wouldn't be a million miles off for functionality, all in Wordpress - ours was for a local tennis club

              these things are more time consuming if not able to do face to face on the functionality requirements, but if you want a ball park figure - PM me for details

                Plus one for WordPress, it's so easy. Any functionality can usually be taken care of by various plugins. In terms of build, it's all PHP. Find a theme that's similar to what you want and then just customise it, you can end up with a pretty decent result for minimal effort.

                In terms of hosting, I've moved all my stuff from TSO to recently and they've been superb.
