Hello,

I am running your v1.5 plugin on a WP 3.8 site and I noticed a couple of things: - No matter what vote I assign, all photos are rated with “0”: http://bewertemich.de/

The message says:”You have already voted on this Competitor Du hast abgestimmt: 0”

So in addition to the error with a score of 0, why does it think I have already voted, even if I use a new browser that I never used before?

I have currently deactivated all plugins except for showdown to make sure there are no conflicts. I also scrubbed all data.

- Three new language strings were introduced recently, but they are either hardcoded in the file or cannot be changed from the backend: “You have already voted on this Competitor” “Share on Facebook” “Share on Twitter” All strings are in ”/path/to/wp-content/plugins/wpshowdown/php/showdown_engine.php” Can they be made translatable with a future version?

- The Competitors backend overview still shows this error: “Warning: Division by zero in /path/to/wp-content/plugins/wpshowdown/php/competitor_class.php on line 146 0.00” It would be nice to take care of this error when no votes have been given yet.

A quick update on the voting score of 0. It’s always good to read the instructions. ;-) That’s due to the Anti-cheat being activated, as it keeps track of votes per IP. However, in my case, it actually really counts a vote of 0 when Anti-cheat is activated, thus reducing the HotOrNot Rating (since this apparently divides “HotOrNot Points” by “HotOrNot Views”). It would probably be better if “HotOrNot Views” are not counted when Anti Cheat is activated, so that the HotOrNot Rating is not affected. Finally, it should not echo the “Du hast abgestimmt: 0” part on the frontend in this case, as it also confuses users.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback, and finding out the cause of the 0 voting score. We’ll take a look at it and issue an update as soon as possible.

We’ll also take a look at those translation strings and that nasty error (it just won’t leave us alone!).

i need this plugin but would need someone to set it up please

WPplugins

It’s pretty straightforward, upload the ZIP file, activate, create your competitors (same process as creating posts) and embed the shortcode into a Post/Page.

i have no ftp access to install

WPplugins

You don’t need FTP access, just upload the ZIP file you will get once you buy the plugin via the plugin upload panel.

I just updated to 1.5, and think I found a bug. The thumbnails are linking to the homepage, rather than the page of the photo.

Default-user

looking at the source code of the page, the url to the photo page on the thumbanil is not being inserted, this is how it looks :

Is it possible to have the competitors appear in the blog rss feed? I just my blog just for this plugin, and the rss feed is empty.

Line 676 I had to edit to make the thumbnail link to the photo page

$return .= ' ';

Changed to: $return .= ‘ ’;

Default-user

Oops, guess you can’t post code here. the href url on lie 676 is wrong, I had to edit it. I changed ’ . $link .’ to ’ . get_permalink( $whoshot ) .’

Default-user

Referring to showdown_engine.php

WPplugins

Thanks, we’ll look into it.

Default-user

Can you tell me what file to edit for the alt & title tags of the photos? I thought it would be in showdown_engine.php but I don’t see it. I want to include a title tag to the photos

How can I remove the Hot or Not status on the rank page when all I am using is the Battle? Thanks

WPplugins

You can open up wpshowdown.css in the “css/” folder and add this to the end of the file

.wp-hotornot-stats { display: none; }

Once you’ve done that save the file and upload it to the same folder on your server via FTP or you can edit it from the backend “Editor” in the “Plugins” area.

Is there an ability to import images via a spreadsheet?

WPplugins

Since the ‘images’ are taken from a custom post type, no there isn’t a way to import images via a spreadsheet.

Hi I purchased the plugin and I wonder I want to go each day competition only between two images in the battle option And I want that after a visitor is vote he will not see more images What is happening now is that they are again just exchanging places What makes the vistor to vote again and again And I want to avoid it Is it possible? you can see sample here http://www.lprank.com/ Thanks
WPplugins

That type of feature is not present in the plugin as of yet, but it’s a good suggestion.

We’ll consider it for the next time we update the plugin.

WPplugins

If you want only two items to compete against each other, you can create a separate “Group” for each item and set them to battle against each other, using the “VS Group” setting in the shortcode generator (the lightning icon).

It’s a bit lengthy process but should get the job done.

Thanks, it’s not working :( any idea? http://www.lprank.com/

responsive? i saw the video demo and would like the video’s to be displayed bigger…

WPplugins

If your theme supports a full width template you can embed the shortcode for the ‘ShowDown’ in it and increase the width. Similarly you can do the same for the ‘Hot or Not’ contests.

You will have to test it out to get your ideal width.

Hi, Great looking plugin… just a quick couple questions. Does the User-Submit add-on work with this plugin? Also, how easy is it to change the Hot and Not labels to say Cute and Ugly instead?

WPplugins

Yes, it does.

You can change it via the backend settings of the plugin.

You can check out our demo to see if your requirements match our plugin. As for developing some of the features not present, we’ll consider it for future releases.

Thanks for your interest.

Default-user

These options they need, do not see them in your plugin. Can you say with certainty whether you it include these my suggestions in your plugin? I need a plugin that can be used in ecommerce. If you add these new options, can you tell me how many weeks will release a new version?

Regards

WPplugins

At present I cannot comment on when/if we will implement any of your above requested features. Your best option would be to buy the plugin and get it customized for yourself.
