Support » Plugin: ContestFriend for WordPress » non-functional, no updates for years

  • I was asked to create a contest/sweepstakes for my company website. Was recommended this plugin through many sites and articles (old and recent) as a free, lightweight solution.

    I tried to get it to work on my main WordPress installation as well as a separate / clean WordPress installation in a subdomain (no plugins other than contestfriend installed). Same results as my main installation.

    I am able to create a contest and then add it to a page but entry submission does nothing. No participant added to the database or under the Dashboard tab, no confirmation email received. After clicking the submission button the page reloads back to the “before submit” rather than the “after submit”

    On a lighter note, I am also experiencing the image insertion problem some others have run into. I have to manually add each image I want to use.

    No solutions or support has been given.

    It’s been 2+ years since an update and looks to be abandoned.

    So the plugin is basically worthless.
