PhotoContest Plugin

This plugin automatically turns a WordPress-page into a photo contest.

  1. Unzip the downloaded file, you should end up with a folder called "wp-photocontest".
  2. Upload the "wp-photocontest" folder to your "plugin" directory (wp-content/plugins).
  3. Make sure that the file permissions of the "wp-photocontest" directory are such that the plugin is allowed to write to it (otherwise, the uploaded photos cannot be stored). (Double check the file permissions for the "contests_holder". When you run php in safe_mode, you need to set it to the same UID (owner) as the script is being executed)
  4. If your web hosting provider enabled the mod_security Apache module on your web server, you need to add the following directives to your .htaccess file in order for batch uploads to work:
<IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>
  1. Go to the "Plugins" WordPress admin panel and activate the PhotoContest plugin.

Optional

  1. When you would like people to upload, you need to let visitors subscribe to your blog)
  2. When you use a theme, you need to create a template file. Read 'Customization')

Uninstall

  1. Backup your CONTEST_HOLDER and SKINS directory.
  2. Remove the wp-photocontest directory.
  3. 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;
