NOTE! The tournament app is a add-on which you can order from Cup Manager. These instructions does only apply to app owners. If you want to know more about the tournament app and/or order a app, please contact

Table of content: 

  • News items

  • Info items (also referred to as simply content-pages)

  • Log in to the webpage to start administer content

  • Create/edit and delete News items

  • Create/edit/delete and reorder Info items

News items

News items will be displayed on the News tab in the app. If there is no News item available, the tab will not show in the app at all.

You can choose from two methods:  

  • Adding them manually to your Cup Manager website, se detailed instructions below.

  • Adding a external web page that is mobile friendly which will show when users visit the News-tab. To activate this, please contact with the URL of your choice. Please allow a few days for us to process this.

Info items

Info items will be displayed on the info tab in the app. The content of this tab mirrors the content pages in your webpage if you use the Cup Manager webpage-system

If you use your own webpage and still want to add info items into the app, we can setup a private version of a webpage for you. This webpage will be unavailable for the public and you will only use it to add content that will be displayed in the app.

There are three different types of info items: 

  • Content page (where you enter the content manually)

  • Link to external URL (when you want to link to another webpage, make sure it is mobile friendly though) 

  • File (when you upload a file, for instance a PDF-file, and links to that file)

More detailed instructions on how to add content is displayed below.

Log in to the webpage to start administer content

If you already are operating a Cup Manager website you probably do not have to take any actions since content on your webpage are mirrored to your app. However, if you do not have a Cup Manager website, but instead operate your own, you need to contact Cup Manager support at in order for them to set up a private website for you. 

When the website has been setup please follow the following instructions:

  1. Please go to the URL of your webpage. You can get this from Cup Manager support. Normally it is:

  2. Log in with the same credentials as you use to login in the Cup Manager-client (your username is your email address).

  3. You will see a webpage, that normally is not published to anyone else but logged in users. You will only use this webpage to edit information that will show up in the app. Since you use your own website for other communication, no one will ever see this page but you and it is therefore no reason for you to change/edit or adjust anything else but content pages.

  4. You are now ready to start adding or editing content.

To change the order of the pages: You can click, drag and drop the pages into the order you would like them to show. Just click the symbol with arrows to do so.

Working with parent pages and child pages (headers and subpages)

When you create, edit and order your pages you can tell Cup Manager that a page should be a sub page to another page. In the website the sub pages (or child pages) are shown as dropdown alternatives under the parent page. 

Please not that even though a parent page is shown correctly and looks good on the web page - in the app it will not show the content on that page - it will only be shown as a header. See image example below: 

Tournament info is the parent page to the pages Rules, Categories and Prices. Accommodation is the parent page to the pages Hotel, Hostel and School Accommodation. There is no sub pages under Contact us and Join.While all pages (both parent and sub pages) will look good and can be accessed on the webpage, in the app the parent pages, for instance Tournament info and Accommodation will not be able to open. Instead they will only be displayed as a header. This is how the example above will look like in the app: 

To change what page is parent or child page, go to Main menu and reorder the pages. You can intend (drag a page a little bit to the right underneath another page), to make it a child page to that page. See "Delete a page or change the order of pages" above for more details.

Best practice when copying and pasting text into the editor

When you copy information from another digital source a lot of invisible formatting rules will also be copied. Some of this formatting rules is not compliant with Cup Manager. This could make the page look really strange and ugly sometimes. Our best tips is to first copy and paste the text into a empty notepad-editor. Then copy the unformatted text again and paste it into the Cup Manager Page.

1) Copy the text you want to add into Cup Manager

2) Open the text editor on your computer, on Windows you can press the Windows-key on your keyboard and then type notepad. Click the Notepad-program (notepad could be exchanged with the local program name on your own language) to open it.

3) Paste the text into the notepad-editor. The text will be pasted but no formatting will follow. 

4) Select all text visible in the notepad-editor and right click and copy it once more.

5) Then go to the Cup Manager website editor and paste it:

6) Make some adjustments on the text if needed, like adding bold text, headers, bullet list and such. Done.
