The MSTW Bracket Builder plugin creates, manages, and displays multiple tournaments. Shortcodes are available to display brackets (knockout rounds), and tables of games (fixtures). The front end displays can be formatted via shortcode arguments, and the plugin’s stylesheet.
Two shortcodes for front end displays are currently available – tournament brackets and tournament game tables. See the Shortcodes man page for information on using these shortcodes, and the MSTW Dev Site for examples of these shortcodes.
The following steps will get Bracket Builder up and running quickly.
- Create a Tournament. Add at least one tournament on the Tournaments screen.
- Add Games to the Tournament. Add the information for the tournament games on the Edit Tournament screen.
That’s basically it. You can now display the tournament(s) on the front end of your site using the Bracket Builder shortcodes.
