  • I’ve tested the plugin and it’s working on the admin side, yay, thank you! 🙂

    Is there a way that the winner can be automatically notified or better still that the winner announced automatically via a widget within the blog post for the purpose of contest transparency?

    I’m part of a fairly tight hobby community and would like to be able to reassure customers and followers that there’s no shenanigans. 🙂

    I pasted the code above right before <?php the_content(); ?> tag in my single.php page.

    Hope it helps.
    Here is a workign example from my blog:
