    Sesha (Web Engine for Tournament Websites)

    Sesha is a Web Engine for Chess Tournament Websites.

    This is a preview of what the program Sesha will have to offer. Please give us feedback on what you would like in a chess tournament website.

    With Sesha, you can maintain your own chess tournament website without any programming knowledge.

    The web based control panel will allow you to modify such information as:

    -- Introduction
    -- News / Announcements
    -- Player List
    -- Results/Draws
    -- Live Games
    -- PGN / CBH Downloadable Games
    -- Searchable Games Database
    -- Bulletins
    -- Venue
    -- Documents (Registration, Accomodation, Map etc)
    -- Sponsors (Sponsor Information, if any)
    -- Contact

    Sections that are automated

    To update results section, all that is required is to upload relevant swiss perfect files and the results section is automatically updated.

    To add a bulletin, simply upload the bulletin document (format up to you) and the bulletin section is automatically updated. Similar sections: Documents.

    To publish the player list, simply upload the relevant swiss perfect files.

    Sections that are manual

    Contact, Venue and Sponsors require typing into a web based interface.

    System Requirements for Control Panel

    Both automated and manual tasks are performed through Sesha. No FTP program required. Just a browser such as Internet Explorer, Netscape or Mozilla. Yes, thats all!

    Requirements for Live Games

    DGT Board and ChessBase 8.0 Installed with Live Controller Extension. (DGT Live Clock optional)

    Requirements for Searchable Games

    ChessBase 7.0 or higher.

    Availability

    Available for any chess tournament in Australia.

    Estimated Development Time Remaining

    2 days.

    I hope you can continue with this - it sounds to me like an excellent idea that would be genuinely useful to a significant number of people.

    A lot of people hold tournaments but not everyone's a web guru. Also, the info for chess tournaments is usually fairly standard and can be put it standard format, as you clearly realise.

    I had toyed with the idea of a java player and an uploader so people could simply send up dated PGN files via a web interface, but it sounds like you're way ahead of all this.

    I'd strongly encourage you to continue with this if you have the time.

    I am resuming development on this program after finishing Beta 4 for Play Chess.

    Cost is $100 per tournament.

    If you are planning to use the program for many tournaments, I can arrange a discount.

    New Feature:

    Admins can choose an existing design or use your own design with this program!

    Plug-in developed by..... me (big suprise).

    About 5 Designs being developed by Charan Ingram. Charan also made the flat blue design for CK Flavors.

    Hopefully I can get the program done before toukley and use toukley data as a test.

    Tournament webpage

    It is a good idea..but requires feedback from the actual users..It is better to brainstorm the original design..and get the most out of it.

    Another idea would be to wake up in the last minute and ask for a custom design and pay through the nose!

    Good morning!!

    This is just wasting my time. I have already burnt my hand once with Australian Chess, so these chess projects are my last priority.

    Now built to work with SP data exchange. [The MtBullerChess site is actually running on Sesha]

    I take it Sesha is a linux-powered tool (PHP perhaps?).

    Is there any functionality crossover with pax's tournament results tool ?

    Sesha has everything that Jonathan's tool has plus more, but it does require PHP and MySQL.

    SPDE does not generate a standings file for each round, so I guess I will have to generate one myself.

    I wouldnt have thought that should be a problem.

    SP will generate a standings file based on the round it is set to.

    Now since you would have the SP files for the event being sent to you after each round, then the .stg file after round 2 is the round 2 standings. The .stg file after round 3 is the round 3 standings etc.

    If that doesnt work, then what am I missing STML.
