Welcome to hockeydb.com's player encoder. This will allow you to encode your hockey-related articles so that the hockey player names become clickable links to their statistics on hockeydb.com. This benefits you because your readers will be able to easily get information on the players you are writing about -- your articles will be more fun to read when the reader can get information on the players. It benefits hockeydb.com because we attain higher visibility among hockey fans.
The first time a visitor clicks on a player's link, a new window opens, ensuring that the visitor will not leave your original article. The same window is used for each player clicked, so multiple windows are not spawned on your visitor's PC.
Although a certain amount of logic is built into the encoder, there will be situations where a player's name will not be encoded:
You may also have names in your article encoded when the people are not really hockey players. If the mayor of Cleveland has the same name as a player, he will be encoded. You can manually correct those situations.
Additionally, when there are mutliple players with the same name (Kevin Brown, for example), the link will bring up the statistics for all the players with that name. You can easily edit the link to only include the player ID of the player you are referring to. You can select one of the categories below to filter out players that you're not writing about.
