Help for Adding startlists and Status to Index Page

Timerhub supports using an event Session report to augment the information pre4sented in the index page. In this alternative index page start lists are shown separtely from results and status of each event can be reported.

Two custom index pages can now be used:

  1. An index page using a HyTek-generated sessions report with event start times.
  2. An index page using a HyTek-generated sessions report, event start times, and the status of each event.

To use these features you will need access to the event directory on your web server, a way to FTP files to your web server (like FileZilla), and an editor (like notepad, notepad++, nano, etc.).

Inital Setup

The first step is to setup the HyTek realtime files by going to Run->Web->Log-in->Create Event Schedule. The meet files should be setup in its own subdirectory and index files should be copied to the subdirectory from HyTek Meet Manager Pro. Upload for each track or feild event "Default Results Pages".

Display Start Lists

  1. Create a subdirectory in the event directory called "startlists".
  2. In Hytek: Run->Web->Log-in then upload all the Meet Program files for each event to the "startlists" sub-directory (i.e., click on "Create heat sheets or Performance Lists for Rounds Not Done").
  3. When the event is opened the index will contain a list of all events with both start lists and results links showing.

Index Formatting Commands

A number of format command are now available to add links to the live scoreboard, links to extra content, logos, alternate index format files, track and field team scores, status, etc.

In the event directory, edit the "main.htm" file to add the text below. Here's what that file needs to contain....

Use a Session Report as the Event Schedule (Index File)

If you wish to show starting times and status of each race or field event, you can create use HyTek-created session reports as an alternate template for the event index. Here are the steps:

  1. In HyTek: Create a sessions report (with or without start times) in HTML format. If start times are not included in the report Timerhub will assume a rolling schedule and isert an askerisk ("*") and a footnote.
  2. Please note: If combined events are contested and you wish the summary spreadsheet or points listing to show you must add a line to the Session report for each combined event. The name (gender and event) should coorespond to the name of the link in the evtindex.htm file. For example. for the decathlon you must add "Men Decathlon" at the line you would like the link. When a line is added be sure to line up columns using spaces only (no "tabs").

  3. Name the file some thing like: Session.htm.
  4. Upload the sessions file to the event directory.
  5. In the main.htm file, add the name of the alternate event schedule like this:
  6. When the event is opened the index will contain a list of all events with start times in addition to both start lists and results links.

Set Event Status

Timerhub now supports setting manually the status or state of each event. To set the status you must use an alternative index (see below) and tell Timerhub the name of the file where status will be stored.

Here are the steps to set status:

  1. On your website in the event or meet directory, open with an editor (like notepad, atom, notepad++, etc.) the file called "main.htm"
  2. In the main.htm file, add the name of the status file and how long the stutus should be used like this:
  3. It is suggested you use a status file name that is specific to the event like "status_070118.csv".
  4. If "reportStatusUntil" tag is not used the status will be applied until the day after the meet.
  5. To set the status use the following link where the "page" is the location of the stored results:
  6. The first time you go to this link Timerhub will create the status file. Simply click on the "Open Status File" link at the top right on the status page. This will open the form needed to enter the event status.
  7. Once you enter an event status and click on "Submit" or hit return the status will be saved and within 7 to 10 seconds the status will show up on the Index page.
  8. Please note: If status is not provided (the entry box is blank), the results link will be removed from the index page until a status is set.
  9. You can enter any status you want. The built in short cuts are:
    • "ns" for Not Started
    • "ls" or "l" for Live Scoreboard
    • "u" for Underway ....
    • "t" for Typing Marks ...
    • "d" for Done
    • "s" for Scored

Add A Logo

TimerHub supports the use of custom logos in the HyTek Index page.

You can add up to three logos on each meet's index web page. Logos must be in "png" or "jpg" format. The first will be inserted in the center top of the index page. If a second logo file is added, it will be placed in the bottom center. If a third logo file is inserted, it will be added at the bottom of the page beside the second logo.

The logo are scaled to have a maximum size of 152px by 152px. The logos should be approximately this size but do not have to be. If the logo files are larger or smaller they will be resized to approximately 152px in the logo's longest dimension.

Here is how to insert a logo:

  1. On your website in the event or meet directory, open with an editor (like notepad) the file called "main.htm"
  2. In the main.htm file, add the name of logo between the tags like this:
  3. If you have more than one logo, separate the logo file names by a comma like this:
