da² Posted December 31, 2022 Share Posted December 31, 2022 Hello, I'm planning to use Processwire for a sim-racing project where we will create events like championships, races and hotlaps. I'm wondering how to manage results and standings for each event. You can see here an example of a hotlap standings : https://online.racingfr.net/hotlaps/assetto.corsa/roc.2022.bmw.e30.dtm.hotlap/okayama/hotlap-2192.html Standings need to be editable, for example to add penalty points to a player result. Usually, without using a CMS, I would create a table "hotlaps" with columns [hotlapID, username, trackID, carID, globalTime, sector1Time, sector2Time, ..., optimalTime] and all of our hotlap results would go in this table. Then I can make SQL queries to find times for a particular hotlapID, track, car... In Processwire I don't know what is the best choice. We will have a single PW page for each hotlap, race or championship. I first thought to create a child page per event result with a template "hotlap_result" corresponding to a single row (a single player result), but we will end with more than 200 000 result pages after years, this is not optimal from an ergonomics point of view in PW admin. And we also have standings for races and championships, so I need a good overall solution. I see that ProFields Table would make the trick, but will it create a separate database table for each hotlap page? That could be an issue cause actually we have 2000 hotlaps, to add to future hotlaps in next years. I hope I'm clear, thank you for your advice. 🙂 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
