If a player's varsity softball high school team is still in the playoffs, is she allowed to play in a tournament this weekend with her travel team? Saw this go on with a Dodgeville player, while my daughter's travel coach wouldn't even let her practice because she said it's not allowed since her team is alive in the playoffs also.

Yes because that would be considered an out of school competition during season which in all sports is not allowed.

I believe this rule changed a couple of years ago.  It now reads that an athlete is not eligible "If you participate in more than two contests or events other than for your official interscholastic school team while you are a member of that school team and during the entire school season (start of practice to end of season) of that sport. You must have prior school approval."

The best course of action is to verify with your school AD beforehand.

We also read on wiaawi.org, that you can compete in 2 events during the regular season, but during the wiaa tournament  you cannot compete outside of your high school team, and since she did, she is ineligible for the rest of the playoffs.

Regular season or post season doesn't matter.  Just need school approval. Not sure if that approval has to come from the head coach, asst coach, AD or school board and if it needs to be in writing or can be an after the fact, "Oh she played last weekend???? Ummm, well, ummm ahhhhh... her dad is an unpaid volunteer asst coach so he must have given her permission so that makes it OK."

Another rule that needs detailed clarification.  Define competition?  Is it 1 game? Is it one 3 game tournament?  

If your coach or school isn't allowing you to play in these transfer to one that will. IMO this should not be up to each school. If the WIAA allows it then a single coach should not be able to over rule that because he feels like it. Put the power to play in the hands of the kids. It should be as easy as fill out a form that says you are opting to play in 2 non school competitions and get it signed by the AD and go play.

If competitions are counted on an individual basis as stated above, why is multiple games in an event not considered more than 1 and a violation of the WIAA rule below? Unless 2 or more is no longer more than 1 or games within a "competition" are not considered on an individual basis?

Except for events held in bordering states (MN, IL, MI and IA), no approval shall be provided for more than one out-of-state
competition, event and/or scrimmage per team each school season.

You're conflating two different regulations.

No, I am wondering why the definition of words like contest, event, competition means different things at different times..
