Help me with coding JavaScript?

Not sure if there is that kind of service here but it never cost to ask, right?

I’m trying to create a standings table for world cup in mountain bike, right now I’m doing this work manually and the table is quite big now.

I have been using TablePress (yes, the website is using WordPress) and that had some (limited) features from a system (?) called DataTables, and went to that website and got som help.

But never having coding JS I’m at a loss to where to start.
I got these pages as reference.

I want it to “look” (the styling I can figure out for my self) like the attached image where the cell Tot. is the sum of cell 1 to 7 on each row and that the table is ordered automatically so that (naturally) the rider with the most points is at the top and so on.

The function where the points gap (Diff.) is calculated is not really that important, but it would be nice if the place nr. is inserted in the first column.

If this isn’t the place for this kind of help, where could I find it?

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:
