This plugin automatically turns a WordPress-page into a photo contest.
Backup your CONTEST_HOLDER and SKINS directory. Remove the wp-photocontest directory and run the following sql commands (in phpmyadmin) DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wp_photocontest; DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wp_photocontest_admin; DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wp_photocontest_config; DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wp_photocontest_votes; DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'wppc_redirect_to' LIMIT 1; DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'PC_DB_VERSION' LIMIT 1; DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'PC_PL_VERSION' LIMIT 1; DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'widget_wp-photocontest-widget' LIMIT 1; DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'wppc_redirect_to' LIMIT 1;
This plugin doesn't use any permalinks and will not be integrated in the near future (or anyone is interested to help development!)
Nope, just one template is used!
The plugin creates a page with a link to enter the contest (or if you use the refresh option in the admin panel, a view of the latest 9 pictues). All other pages after that are generated by the plugin. Other have reported that the first versions of this plugin, broke their sites (mainly the position of the sidebar). I have created a function that will read the wp-photocontest/skins//templates.tpl file and replaces the string
with the generated content. You need to create the templates file or else the plugin will print a blank page with a warning and the generated content. View the Customization part of the documentation.
If you are unlucky it will. We try to prevent this, but we can't promise it. Version 1.3 will hold the user-generated into the wp-content folder.
No, it won't delete the page/post. To delete the page/post you need to follow the directions to delete a page/post.
Yes, the target directory can only be a subdirectory in the "wp-photocontest" directory.
Create the directory, make it writeable and change the 'CONTESTS_PATH' contant in wp-photocontest-config.php file.
Copy the aqua directory in the directory 'skins' and edit as aproperiate. Then change the 'CONTESTS_SKIN' contant in wp-photocontest-config.php file. Read 'Customization'!
Go in the admin panel, in the Settings section you can able visitors to subscribe to your blog. When you done, it will be visible the link "subscribe" in the requested login page.
Check if you have safe_mode enabled, because when safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the directory in which the script is operating has the same UID (owner) as the script that is being executed. Note: Since version 1.2 we do some extra checks and return more detailed errors.
Yes, you can. Open images/polaroid.fla and edit as wanted. Upload polaroid.swf to you skins directory. (So, don't upload it in the images directory)
