Introduction

ToplistX allows you to create an unlimited number of ranking pages to display your accounts. This document will describe how you can add, update, and remove the ranking pages that ToplistX will be building.

While ToplistX does not set a limit on the number of ranking pages you can configure, your server configuration will be a limiting factor. If you plan on having a very large number of ranking pages generated by ToplistX (500+) it is highly recommended that you have a high-end dedicated server.

Searching/Viewing Ranking Pages

To view the currently configured ranking pages so you can modify or delete them, access the ranking Pages > Manage Pages function from the control panel menu. This will display a page where you will be able to see all of the currently configured ranking pages and search them if necessary.

In the table that displays the ranking pages you have configured, you will find several functions that you can run on a single ranking page at a time. Each of those functions are described below. In addition to running these functions on single ranking pages, you can also delete multiple pages at once. To do this, put a check in the checkbox next to the ranking pages you want to delete, then press the Delete button at the bottom of the page.

Adding Ranking Pages

To add a new ranking page, access the Ranking Pages > Manage Pages function from the control panel menu. Near the top of the page in the header bar that reads "Manage Ranking Pages" click on the icon. This will display a popup window where you will be able to enter the information for the new page. Each of the form fields are described below. Once you have filled in all of the fields as you want them, press the Add Ranking Page button. This will add the new page to the database, and it will appear in the Manage Pages interface. The actual ranking page will not yet be created, that will happen after you run one of the page building functions.

Adding Ranking Pages in Bulk

To add multiple new ranking pages at one time, access the Ranking Pages > Manage Pages function from the control panel menu. Near the top of the page in the header bar that reads "Manage Ranking Pages" click on the icon. This will display a popup window where you will be able to enter the information for the new pages. Each of the form fields are described below. Once you have filled in all of the fields as you want them, press the Add ranking Page button. This will add the new page to the database, and it will appear in the Manage Pages interface. The actual ranking page will not yet be created, that will happen after you run one of the page building functions.
