One of the most frequently asked questions we get about BracketPress is “how can I have my users have multiple brackets?”
Awesomely, the core of BracketPress already has that capability. If you’d like to give an additional bracket (or two) to your users, here’s what you as the site owner can do:
a) Login in to the Administrator
b) Click on “Brackets”
c) Click “Add New”
d) Give the new bracket a title
e) In the content area,
WordPress again shows another new way it can be used creatively.
This March Madness basketball tournament season, we’ve come across a new free plugin that extends WordPress so that it can be used to host a tournament bracket competition.
In this article, we’ll show you how to manage the tournament bracket system from within WordPress. By allowing open registration within WordPress, your tournament bracket site can be open to the public. You can also leave registration turned off
Timing for the opening of your own bracket site is pretty simple, but you need to make sure that you have these dates in mind:
Early March – Build your Site
If you haven’t done so already, you need to build out your bracket site. This means installing BracketPress and the Pro modules on your site, configuring it, and making sure everything is working. You may want to have a couple of trial tournaments to make sure everything is working
Have you ever wanted to run your own office pool during the upcoming basketball tournament?
Until now, you’ve had two options: first, you could print out, manually fill out and score paper brackets. That’s what we did during high school, and I still remember helping to “score” the brackets every day for a week.
Or, you could send your friends and co-workers to one of the big sports site, create a group, and allow everyone to participate online.
