Bracket Improvements

When using the Automatic User timezone functionality on your website, you can also show the kickoff time in the user timezone in the Bracket layout. Just put the time in ISO8601 format (e.g.,
“2022-11-28T20:00:00+00:00“).

How to Render Bracket Layout on Your Site

Layout Builder

You can display a Bracket in your Competition with the help of Layout Builder. Put the Bracket block in any place your want and save.

Shortcode

If you decide to show Bracket on any page or post, you can use the dedicated shortcode [anwpfl-bracket] to do so. In argument “competition_id” you should use the exact knockout Stage ID, not main Competition ID.
