And The Winner Is...
And the Winner Is Makes my site spin (11 posts)

    I have had a lot of giveaways recently due to group holiday giveaways. Lately, whenever I open the plugin to choose/view winners, it causes my site to spin for several minutes, basically bringing my site down.

    I love this plugin for the ease of choosing winners, but obviously, I can't bring my site down every time I need to view/choose winners. Any ideas how I can fix this? I noticed that every giveaway is listed on one page...if you have too many giveaways, does it just hit a point that it doesn't work anymore?

    I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with McAfee software. Not sure what else you might need :-).

    I've done probably 60 giveaways since the beginning of Dec. due to several large week-long extravaganzas - the most recent had 19 giveaways.

    Awesome...thanks! I love your plugin...don't want to have to go back to the old-fashioned ways of choosing winners. And when you find the time machine...could you let me know :-).

    New version available now!

    It adds search and pagination. That should fix your issue. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Except the time machine. If I find it, I'm keeping it. :P
