By downloading/installing this module you agree with the conditions stated above.

This plugin allows you to create contests from Admin CP.

It creates a thread automatically in a custom forum with the content you want whenever a contest is created.
Admin is notified via PM whenever a contest ends.

The lates contests are shown on the index page. (if you do not want to show the latest contests, set the setting 'X Latest Contests' to 0)

Changes since v1.1:
  • X Latest Contests(as well as in the browse contests page in Admin CP) table are ordered by contest id and not by date anymore
  • Added a edit function (note that the end date of the contest you're editing will not appear in the text field of the end date, this would make me search for a fix and at the moment I am really busy with other things)
  • End date is now added according to your board's settings. There's also a preview button to preview the date according to your board's date and time settings. Note that if you have DST enabled, do not count with the +1 hour as it does it automatically.
  • Added a new field into the contests table (thead id). And the contest name now links to the contest thread. You can edit the old contests and change the thread id.

Changes since v1.0:
  • Added _install and _uninstall functions.
  • Displays in the index page the X latest contests (contest name, winner and end date)
  • Added a setting which allows admins to set how many contests are displayed in the Latest Contests table.
