The wp-SwimTeam plugin will only work (for now, subject to change) with WordPress 3.5.xand later. Development is currently being done against WordPress 3.6.1 will likely yield the best results.
The wp-SwimTeam plugin is very much in a state of active development, particularly during the months leading up to Summer Swim Season in Raleigh, North Carolina (February through July). The current stable version plugin is available from the WordPress plugin repository. I strongly recommend using the Plugin Installer from the WordPress Dashboard as you get automatic update notfications and the process is much, much easier.
The plugin is also available for download here and occasionally I release an early or beta version of it here prior to making it available from the plugin repository. The current stable release is usually what typically drives the wp-SwimTeam Demo site.
For the really brave, you can reference the work in progress source from the Subversion repository on SourceForge. Be sure to find the correct trunk for the plugin as the SourceForge project encompasses a couple other sub-projects within the larger wp-SwimTeam project! Additional notes on using the development thread from Subversion appear below.
The wp-SwimTeam plugin is dependent on the phpHtmlLib plugin so download and install it first. I recommend using the plugin installer from the WordPress Dashboard or installing it directly from the WordPress plugin respository.

To obtain the latest version from Subversion, use the following Subversion command:
svn export https://svn.code.sf.net/p/wp-swimteam/code/plugin/trunk wp-swimteam
This will export the latest version (aka trunk) of the plugin to a directory called wp-swimteam. The plugin is dependent on the 2_X_X thread of phpHtmlLib however it makes use of code which is in the phpHtmlLib respository but hasn’t been released yet. Similarly, you will need to get the latest version of phpHtmlLib’s 2_X_X thread from it’s SVN repository.
svn export https://svn.code.sf.net/p/phphtmllib/svn/branches/BRANCH_2_X/phphtmllib phphtmllib
The wp-SwimTeam plugin is dependent on the phpHtmlLib plugin so download and install it first. I recommend using the plugin installer from the WordPress Dashboard, in particular for the phpHtmlLib plugin. The download version on this page includes examples and documentation which are useful for plugin developers but of zero value for actual usage. The version from the WordPress plugin repository does not have the documentation and examples and is significantly smaller.
Manual installation of phpHtmlLib is simple as it is now a WordPress plugin: Install it like any other WordPress plugin. Drop the plugin in the wp-content/plugins directory and activate it from the Plugins menu. The phpHtmlLib plugin must be installed and activated in order for wp-SwimTeam to run correctly.
Installation of the wp-SwimTeam plugin is simple – it is installed like any other WordPress plugin. Drop the plugin in the wp-content/plugins directory and activate it from the Plugins menu. Upon activation the plugin will create all of the necessary tables. Before using the plugin, make sure you set the various settings under the Settings->Swim Team menu.
