Once you download the plugin, simply upload it via your Plugins upload panel and activate. You will now see a dedicated menu for the plugin.
You can now choose your “Battle Mode”, set up your image configurations, edit the text if you like, update your settings and you are good to go!
Upload as many “competitors” as you like using the dedicated Custom Post Type created by the plugin, once your image has been uploaded simply set it to be the “Use as featured image”! The plugin will automatically pick the featured image and use it in the Hot or Not contests.
You can even set up “Groups”, they work exactly the same as regular WordPress categories.
Voting is on a scale of 1 – 10 and all the text in the plugin is fully customizable, so you can use any terminology you like. Plus it’s 100% translation ready!
Don’t want to use it with images? Not a problem, you can feature text or embed videos as well! Check out our demo site for a live preview.
Use the handy shortcode generator to enter your shortcode to show your contests in your Posts or Pages.
Want to embed contests related only to a specific Group? Not a problem, the Hot or Not script can segment via Groups as well.
Make Money with Hot or Not!
The plugin also allows you to customize the links on your images, so you can link them with your affiliate link to products and create a potential affiliate revenue stream.
The plugin also comes with a “Battle Mode” allowing you to let images battle between each other.
