Live Scores - Import API

Premium Version Only

Powerful hosting is required!
Do no use it on Shared hosting, it may exceed your resource limit and put the website down!

Scheduling import increases the overhead on your server. It creates a Cron job and fetches and handles API data every minute.

1) Add API import key and create import configuration

- set API key and URL in "FL+ Configurator" >> "Import API";

Then create an import configuration and add it to the Dashboard (click on Star icon)

Troubleshooting: Disable Cron job manually

In case of a problem, you can disable all site Cron jobs by adding a special code to the wp-config.php file (before the line "That's all, stop editing! ...") in the root of your WordPress installation. 

This option will disable all site Cron jobs.

define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);

Or you can install Crontrol plugin and remove "anwp_fl_live_api_import_hook" in "Tools" >> "Cron Events"

Where is shortcode for livescore?


J'ai besoin d'un outil de gestion de scores en direct pour mon site 

Can this be used to view actual upcoming live matches (NOT fantasy matches)? Or can I "only" create fantasy-leagues based on data from the API?

The plugin will show only LIVE game from your site, created manually, or imported from API.

Ok. So if I want to get information about a game in the Bundesliga - I will have to create a tournament/season in Wordpress, and then sync that with the API. I cannot import a single game directly from the API - only from my own local Wordpress, that has been synced with the API?

Can this plugin be used for all football live score API?

ok, thanks

Hello, I bought the premium plugin. What I want to ask is that I want to show only live matches in tab. How can I do it?

Hi Andrei,

I have everything setup, but the line ups are not being updated before the game? What am I doing wrong?



Try to reschedule it.

Do you have the same number of Selected and Scheduled competitions?

Hola que tal, buenas tardes

He comprado la versión premium del plugin y me he suscrito en API SPORTS con una cuenta gratuita para hacer un testeo, pero el problema es que al ingresar el api-key y seguir los pasos de la documentación del plugin para importar los datos, al ir a la opción de import api este me marcar "ERROR 403: Ha fallado la comprobación de la cookie" y por lo consiguiente no me regresa la información para poder proseguir.

Agradecería si me apoyan a solucionar esto ya sea si es algún dato que pueda utilizar hacer para solucionarlo.

Try to log out and then log in again into your WordPress admin.

me sigue marcando lo mismo, tendra algo que ver que el sitio se multisite


Are you have an administrator role?


Best Regards

Andrei S.

Si, asi es, tengo rol de super administrador

I couldn't reproduce your issue on multisite.

Maybe you have any security plugins or other limitations on your website.

I have a problem here - I cannot activate the live import (only MANUAL live import)

Image 8676

This is what my FL+ Live Configurator looks like.

Also in "General" I don't find any live import function.

Image 8678

I found this in "FL API Import -> Settings", but it's not live-importing. I always need to update finished games manually, even though all tasks are scheduled.

Hello Danny

Maybe you have a problem with your CRON configuration. Create a support ticket about this problem
