Looking to add some incredible fantasy sports features to your WordPress website or blog? The official WordPress plugin from FantasyNerds.com is the answer. With just a few steps, you can easily add rankings, projections, game day weather, injuries, depth charts, and more! By simply copying and pasting simple WordPress shortcodes, you can add content to your website or blog that is automatically updated.
First things first - you'll need to download and activate the FN plugin. The easiest way to do this is by signing into your WordPress Administration section and searching for it. Find Plugins from the WordPress admin menu and click on Add New.
Search for "fantasy football" and the FN plugin should show up in your search results. Click on the "Install Now" button.
Alternative: If you don't want to add the plugin from the search menu, you can also access the FN WordPress plugin by visiting the official WordPress website and adding it from there.
Download and activate the FFN plugin. From the WordPress Administration screen, click on "Plugins" and click on "Upload New Plugin". Once it has been uploaded, look for the Fantasy Football plugin. When you find it, click the Activate link.
In order for the plugin to talk to FantasyNerds.com, you'll need to create and purchase an API key. This key allows your plugin to tell us who you are, what services you have access to, and allows us to monitor the resources used so that we can continue to provide a responsive platform for everyone.
If you don't have an account at Fantasy Nerds, you'll need to create one, but don't worry - it's quick and easy. If you already have an account, you'll need to sign in to either get your key or to generate one.
If you need to create an API key, do so and then come back here and go to Step 3.
Once you have your API key, go back to your WordPress Administration screen and click on the Settings option. From there, look for the "FN Settings" link.
Enter your API key into the appropriate box and click "Save Changes".
Congratulations - you've just installed the Fantasy Nerds WordPress plugin! Now it's time to start plugging it into your website!
