New features in v3.0
CUSTOM FIELDS IN LAUNCH CONTEST MODULE
You now can decide which fields the visitors have to fill out when they launch a contest. Some of the fields you can enable or disable via back end: company name, business field, industry, audience, examples, colors, and more. Those fields can also be easily renamed in the language file. For example, if you don’t need “audience” field but would like to have “company slogan” field instead you can simply replace text in language file.
ATTACH FILES TO CONTEST
Contest Holders can now attach multiple files to a project when they launch contest.
TEXT WRITING CONTESTS
Admin can enable a category of his/her choice to accept text submissions. Designers then will be able submit text entries made of a title and the entry itself. Submissions can be edited and retracted by user.
Users can now upload an avatar and add information about themselves: country, company, profession, etc. Users can also upload and delete portfolio items that are displayed in a user profile and can be views as thumbnails or as large images (lightbox).
New listing enhancement option: blind contest. This option (free or paid, this is set up by admin in the back end) allows users to run contests where only the Contest Holder himself and submission author can see submitted entries.
CONTACT US PAGE
Premade default page with “contact us” form allowing users to contact site administration. You can easily modify this page from the back end.
This module will display some site statistics of your choice: number of site users, open projects, submitted designs, average designs per projects, total prizes offered, etc. You can choose which data you want to display by configuring this module via back end.
As requested by many customers, decimals are now removed and default number is “0” instead of “0.00”. If you require “0.00” values you can change those values in your database.
