Run and score a tournament bracket pool.
Install was easy. Bought the Pro data feed. Updates every hour.
It works. Everyone at work is pretty happy. I put it together in about 3 hours from fresh server install. Most of that time inputting in brackets. The actual time to set up and install BracketPress was probably 15 mins. I didn't think about putting up a bracket tracker until after March Madness started.
Any how. Everything works great.
I wish the pro data feed had an option to update immediately after game ends. This might probably be difficult with overtimes. But maybe update at 2:00 hrs, 2:15 hrs, and 2:30 hrs after game start for each game.
Once I read the tutorial that's linked on their blog, I had no problems at all. Super helpful, they helped me adapt it to my needs. Great support - great product - great people!
I installed and tested this plugin today. The set-up is a bit time consuming if you're using the free version since you have to add dummy data by hand for 64 team names, but once you have that, the plugin will let you randomly fill in all the data for your dummy brackets (by hitting the randomize button). I love the fact that this plugin is free, too. It's the ultimate freemium model. Do a lot of work by hand for free, or upgrade to let the plugin's service do the work for you. If you do want to go with the free version, I wrote a quick guide on how to get it up and running: http://www.fredmarion.com/how-to-use-bracketpress-for-wordpress-for-free/
doesnt work with me :( page not found ect..
Bracketpress saved the day. No more PDF pools, no more paper pools with registration boxes. In literally minutes I had a great opportunity for my radio stations to run an online contest! If you are a media group looking for a revenue opportunity, this is it!!!!
Good support. Great idea. Rolling it out just in time for March and all of the NCAA fun. Will be going pro on this to save time across multiple sites.
This plugin is working very nicely. I will be buying the Pro update so I can take advantage of the automatic data feed and scoring updates. Great support, too!
Easy to set up. Running our tournament through wordpress for the first time this year.
Finally, a great plugin to make it easy to set up and run a tournament pool. It's easy and awesome....oh, and it's free!
Was exactly what I was looking for. Worked the first time and was simple to configure.
