    Hello! I am running a photo contest with nextgen voting, but i have a problem. Some of the voters have dynamic IPs and are messing up the contest and I can't do anything to block that range of IPs(no option here)
    Instead, I want to replace the voting mechanism with the facebook like button for every image. How can i do that?
    Thank you!

    Hi fl401

    Facebook liking is outside of the plugin's scope. Have a look at http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/ to get you started using FB's like button.

    Good luck

    Thank you for your reply!
    I've tried, but I don't know how to put the like button for every image that enters in contest. Maybe you can help me?
    Or if you could tell me how to ban an ip range from voting, that will be awesome.
    Thank you very much!

    You can often ban IP ranges directly from CPanel or Plesk, if your host allows that. If not, there are WP plugins that can help. That's not going to just stop someone voting, but stop them from seeing the site altogether.
    Unfortunately, blocking IPs within the voting plugin isn't in something that's a high priority. I will add it to the list of things to consider for future versions, but I'm not sure when (or if) that will make it in.

    Talking you through the facebook like button is also a little out of scope just for this forum :) Have a look at the URL I posted, that should get you started.

    Sorting by voting results is in the Premium add-on. You can see more information on that feature at my site, http://shauno.co.za/wordpress/nextgen-gallery-voting-premium/

    will you include in the future that in the basic theme?

    Most likely not. Giving away a paid-for feature would be very unfair to the people that are currently supporting the development by purchasing the add-on.

    This stores the user id if the person voting is logged into WordPress. Then it can be used to prevent duplicate votes if you have the 'Only allow logged in users' and the 'Only allow 1 vote per person for this image' or 'Only allow 1 vote per person for this gallery' options set

    How can I limit a vote to one computer, for limiting those who have a dynamic ip? Thank You!

    You cannot. I want to add cookies to the list of ways to stop duplicate voting, but of course then all a user has to do is clear their cookies and they can vote again.
    This is also a difficult task with the way WP handles the calling the plugin and the previous page output.

    No, the plugin is specifically built to add voting to NextGEN Gallery, and that is for WordPress only

    You cannot.
    The voting buttons are mostly links, and it would require a rewrite of the entire voting engine to be able to include extra data.
    I have it on the list of things to investigate, because a few people have suggested it, but I don't know if I will be able to re-work all the existing code to support it.

    Hi,

    following up on this post. Using the premium version of NGG is it possible to put images that have more than 60 likes in the best images gallery as following : (Also can use this layout with NGG? )

    [Best Images]

    Prev<< image2 image2 image3 image4 image5 >>Next

    Hi rukcs

    I'm not sure I completely understand what you are asking? The Premium plugin won't automatically be able to move images around galleries. The plugin does allow you to order images inside a gallery by the current voting averages though.

    cool, I can then manually add the high rated likes to a specific gallery.

    How about a registered user, can he/she keep track of images he/she likes to be shown on their profile ?

    Thank you

    The plugin can't do that, but I like that idea. I will add this to my list of things to consider in future versions.
    If you want a detailed list of the features available in Premium, you can have a look at my site here.

    Hi Shauno, I am using the premium version of the plugin and for some reason the like button replaces the image title/description. Could you let me know how I can fix this. I would like to put the name of the image above the thumbnail if possible. Thanks!
