Deleting

Deleting a bracket from eteamz: On the Tournament Brackets homepage click the remove icon. This will delete the bracket from eteamz admin as well as from the site. Careful, there is no undo!

Deleting a bracket from the site only (keep it in the admin tool): There are two ways to do this.

1. Click Publish next to the tournament and unclick the checkbox next to the page you want to remove the bracket from. Save your changes.

2. Each time a tournament is published to the site, a news item is created for it. To delete the news item but retain the bracket in your admin, go to News or Add a New Page (then Edit an item on this page) and delete the news item.
