Can't make a leaderboard with the new player list

Hey, I’ll keep this simple and clear.
Today I tried making a leaderboard for a game of mine, and when I clicked ‘Play’ it wouldn’t show up in studio.
Here’s my script:
local DataStore = game:GetService(“DataStoreService”)

local PointsData = DataStore.GetOrderedDataStore(“Points”)


local points = PointsData:GetAsync(plr.UserId)

local leaderstats =“Folder”)

leaderstats.Name = “leaderstats”

local pointsValue =“IntValue”, leaderstats)

pointsValue.Value = points

leaderstats.Parent = plr


I feel as if this has something to do with the new player list, or is the code simply wrong?

First, please indent your code to make it a lot easier to read. Second, I recommend setting the “leaderstats” parent before setting the “points” parent. I feel as if I may have had this problem too, but other then that your script should be fine. Also being a little off topic sorry, I am not sure your data store structure is correct, is that your full script?

Edit: The folder wouldn’t even show up inside the player when I was testing my leaderboard, could be a bug with studio.

You should always check your output for errors to make sure it is working correctly. Also, don’t use the second argument of - there’s a PSA about it

Yes, It’s my whole script.
I don’t know scripting at all, I got this script from a YouTube tutorial. So I have no idea what I’m doing, so I don’t know how to…

Ok well your data store is missing some things to properly save, try looking at AlvinBlox’s video if you haven’t. He explains everything in great detail.

The GetOrderedDataStore method should be called with a :, not a . (unless you pass the self argument in explicitly).
