Additional requests for more security and flexibility, and also they will be needed a lot for my contest :)

1. Rating option

When enabled the option changes simple Vote button to Rate (for example stars ☆☆☆☆☆). Administrator choose this Option (Vote or Rate) for each contest.

2. Premoderation for Rates/Votes.+ Users’ descriptions/comments for their rates/votes

When Premoderation is enabled, Administrator sets additional option: Require comments(descriptions).

If Require comments option is enabled, then users have to write comment(reason for their rate/vote) after they press Vote/Rate button to confirm their vote/rate.

In Admin Premoderaton panel there’s list of rates with user comments, so moderator can read every comment before approve/decline the vote or rate.

These comments (descriptions) are for administrator/moderator only and are nor visible in the front end.

If Rate option is enabled, Administrator can set a treshhold rate value when description becomes required. For example, the descripton is required only for rates less than three stars inclusive (★★★☆☆ and less). So users must have a really good reasons to rate videos with low marks.

This will save contestants from twisting votes and unreasonly low ratings, and will help to find the real winner.

Such type of votes/ratings validation is used in a big Russian Citizen Initiative National Award ( and works very well for 2 years already, so this idea is not new and is tested in real life.

P.S. It may be optionally used as one more layer of security (10th).

P.P.S. These features can be added to Photo Contest Plugin as well.

Thank you for your suggestions!

No problem, it’s for everybody’s sake (except сheaters) :)

And one suggestion more, to easily identify bots attacks – statistics charts of activity based on how much votes were made in particular period of time in general and for any video in particular. Visual information may help us a lot in the holy war against vandals and cheaters ;)

11th layer… Oh my, these layers may overgrow the Great Wall :D

There’s no end in this race, haha, but we must be always a step ahead

I’ve just finished translation for one more plugin in WordPress repo, and ready to translate Video Contest Plugin to Russian. Only if such contribution is welcome, of course.

Another features: Allow us to create a contest which will use the winner of each category selected or another contest selected. For example, we want to create a contest for each city of the country and a national contest will only have the 1st video of each city contest. Thanks

kml29 Isn’t it possible to make it manually?

By the way, is it possible for Admin to move videos from one contest to another?

No, it is not. There is no reason for that. Imagine transferring the video from Pet contest to Selfie contest. It just makes no sense

Yes, I see your point and I agree. Thanks for reply

Hi 1) When click voting button, it doesn’t show focus state on my site. After refresh, got count on entry. How can I get exactly action like demo. 2) How can limit voting count one time per day for each user IP.

Hello, Please follow up my email. Thanks you!

Is there a way to charge for video entries? Maybe integration with paypal or WooCommerce?

Hello. There is no option for that. But it should not be a problem use some content locker like this one

I have the photocontest license, is it possible to use both plugins at the same time? in the same contest? that the user can upload photo or video?

Hello. No it is not possible tu use both plugins on one page

Good evening, your product is perfect for my plans but i need a solution to disable the user upload in the menu is there any way?

cause i wanna do a contest but only few persons should be able to upload and not all registered members

or members send me a youtube link and i will upload it in the contest board and other can vote something like that

Hello. Sure. You can hide whole submit section actually you can hide any section you want. So you can hide submit section and profile section and also you can hide author (because all video will be submitted by you)

Hi, I see the plugin was updated a week ago, that’s good news! Could you please clarify what improvements were made, on the Plugin description page? Thank you!

Last Update 20 February 18

One update more, that’s very good! Please what was updated? No information in Item Details, no changes in demo.. Were it just minor updates and bug fixes?

The changes were only small. Only code optimization and some minors errors. There is no need to do an update.
