User Pages

There are several pages your users will use to manage their challenges, competitions, match results, teams, and player profiles. After you finish installation, you should first create those pages for your users. There is convenient tool located on the Wordpress Admin -> Tournamatch -> Tools page titled Create Pages which will automatically generate each page for you.

After creating the pages your users require to navigate the various features in Tournamatch, you should add links to your menu for pages you expect your users to navigate. The user-facing pages your users may need are listed in the table below.

While Tournamatch is loaded with features to help you run your own gaming community, it is not designed to replace every plugin available to WordPress. There are several features that we have avoided adding to our own software because there are other plugins that already do a good job implementing the feature. The list below includes several we recommend you install along side Tournamatch.

  • Peter's Login Redirect
  • Max Mega Menu
  • Easy WP SMTP
  • User Role Editor

Customizing the Appearance

To achieve a seamless integrated experience for your users, we encourage you to customize the appearance of Tournamatch. Tournamatch is built using BootStrap 4; so, selecting a template that also uses BootStrap 4 will yield the best aesthetic results.

It's important you use the Additional CSS method for customizing the appearance. You can find the Additional CSS page in WordPress Admin -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS. Adding CSS here will preserve your modifications after a Tournamatch update.

{warning} Failure to add CSS here, instead making changes directly in the included CSS file, will cause you to lose your changes upon update.

Most all Tournamatch-related CSS styles may be accessed with a CSS name or id selector. For example, if you wanted to hide the Last column on the ladder standings page, you could add the CSS below to Additional CSS:

.trn-ladder-standings-table-last { display: none }
