Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery Voting » Need a total for voting criteria

  • I have 5 drop down (numbers) voting criteria on a photo. I need to be able to ADD the chosen numbers on all 6 and have the result field store the added results so I can use that as a composite result for each image, kind of like Olympic skating results. I then need to be able to show the photo with the highest combined result by adding each voting criteria per picture.

    Certainly someone has done that. I am hosting a photo contest where internal judges (pros) are judging the photos and we need to be able to calculate who got the highest accumulative ratings across all criteria and by all the judges combined. We’re giving prize awards for winners in several categories and need a fairly quick way to do that. We used to calculate it all by had but we’ve added a “mobile device” category and expect 20x more participants.

    Any ideas.
    Here is the code I’ve added to the viewer:
    Color/Tone: <?php echo nggv_imageVoteForm($image->pid, 1); ?>
    <!– Notice criteria ID: 1 –>
    Clarity: <?php echo nggv_imageVoteForm($image->pid, 2); ?>
    <!– Notice criteria ID: 2 –>
    Composition: <?php echo nggv_imageVoteForm($image->pid, 3); ?>
    <!– Notice criteria ID: 3 –>
    Essence of Green Cay: <?php echo nggv_imageVoteForm($image->pid, 4); ?>
    <!– Notice criteria ID: 4 –>
    Overall Appeal: <?php echo nggv_imageVoteForm($image->pid, 5); ?>
    <!– Notice criteria ID: 5 –>

    Thanks in advance if you have any ideas.

  • Thank you for a quick response…. Because of the cookie issues this product has totally embarrassed me. This might be OK for really simple photo voting but crashing the browser after 30 “rates” is terrible. The fact that you can’t eliminate the cookies from being sent to the client’s browser even though you have configured it that way is terrible. And, there are no instructions on where to “fix” the problem in any of the scripts. I’m disappointing in this product, if you can call it that.
