I created a bracket, how do I put it on a page?

To place the bracket on a page use the shortcode [bracket]. See Other Notes or the readme.txt for more information on the shortcode and its accepted attributes.

How many teams/items can I have in my bracket?

Tournament Bracket Generator only excepts teams/items in numbers of 4, 8, 16, 32, 64.

I applied the counter option to my bracket but letters are showing in the boxes instead of numbers

That error is encountered when the counter option is added to a bracket that has already been saved. Clear the bracket to have the counter appear as expected.
