Use this plugin to create simple tournament brackets. It supports single elimination head-to-head tournaments in sizes of 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, or 256 competitors. You can manually set the seeding when the tournament is started. Bracket colors can be modified in the WordPress backend -> Settings -> Tournaments page.
You can display the brackets on any page using the
[simple-tournament-brackets tournament_id="$id"] shortcode where $id corresponds to the post_id of the created tournament. The shortcode to use is also displayed for each tournament on the WordPress backend All Tournaments page.
How do I change the colors used on the brackets?
You can select the colors used on the brackets using the WordPress Backend -> Settings -> Tournaments page.
I’m using the shortcode, but I don’t see the brackets. How do I display the brackets after creating a tournament?
After creating a tournament, you must click the Start action on the All Tournaments screen.
How do I change the seeding of competitors on the bracket?
Competitors are seeded in the order entered in the Competitors text area box displayed after clicking Start.
