I am planning to run a writing contest.  There will be a small entry fee and a text field for people who enter the contest to paste in their chapter.

I want it to be super easier for the user.  They will basically enter their email and name, pay the entry fee, submit their writing for the contest, and receive a confirmation email.  

Can anyone think of a simple way to set this up?

Can it be done with Constant Contact and Pay Pal?   Is there some other plug in I should use?

I gotta be honest, I am not a high tech guy.  All tips or suggestions would be much appreciated.

I am going out, but I will check this thread later.

Thank you in advance!

Michael

Maybe an invite-only mailing list? Does each participant see each others entries?

globalfocusmagazine.wordpress.com is clearly hosted by Wordpress, globalfocusng.com would need to be self-hosted and that would get rid of the bar at the top. You'll need to backup your theme, posts and pages and restore them to the new site using a webhost of your choice.

Alternatively you can pay Wordpress a relatively premium price to to use their hosting services and that will get the bar at the top removed. However, I think you have more control over the themes and design if you self-host.

If you pay Wordpress, it's all here:

A second look at Nextgen Gallery Plugin - after abstaining from using it given the initial Photocrati takeover disaster. Hint - it is much improved but...
Next gallery Plugin is substaintially improved from its original version - especially the many display options, But the Pro version will be necessay for advanced use.

Hi,

I need your help.
I have a new site that went live last night.
I had problems in webmaster-tools: it doesn;t find the sitemap(because of the robots.txt file) and i followed many online guides how to solve it and none helped.

i changed the robots txt to:
User-Agent: *
Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/

my sitemap is by yoast and looks fine.

in the webmaster tools i still see the same error. That my pages were submittd but not indexted.

on google when i put: "site:mysite.com" i get all pages except the homepage.

when i google "mysite.com" i see my site on the second result but it's says:
"
mysite » Search Results » {search_term}
http://www.mysite.com/
A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt – learn more
"

I'm really stuck and find no solutions online.
I asked the hosting company for that and they said the robots.txt is fine.
hopefully you can help...

Thanks

im using ithemes security pro on all my websites. Its very good ( not perfect ) but allows you to do most of whats been mentioned here, change backend login address, malware scanning, reduce spam, recaptcha and  google two factor authentication is very good to name a few. Wordfence is also as good

I have the plug-in Revisionary installed to schedule future page updates for my site. Recently I added the plug-in Improved Include Page to add code from a specific page to a template.

On the page with the code being added to the template I have commented out code <!-- --> with example code for other users. When a scheduled update gets published, the code gets converted to the alt code thus causing my example code to be published too. Is there a setting or something I am missing to correct this?

WordPress crashes if I debug a site on localhost, while I am not connected to the Internet.

This is not a bug report. Bug was reported and closed.

WordPress needs a WP_LOCAL configuration setting, to prevent updates and loading external resources, if site is not connected to the Internet.

Questions  - 
 
Listserv Plugins?

I'd like to create a listserv by finding a plugin to accomplish that from a WordPress website. Can anyone suggest a plugin to do that?

I want to create an email discussion list. In the old days, these were called listserves. Another name for them is "email reflector".

These are email-based discussion tools, where one subscriber sends an email to the listserv email address to post a question, and then it is relayed out to everyone on the subscriber list, and then when one of the subscribers replies to the original message, their reply is relayed out to everyone else.

It's sort of like a discussion forum or "bulletin board" but all done via email.

Thanks!

Just heard about this the other day. I think it'll do most of what you're looking for: http://gopostmatic.com/ I haven't tried it yet. Been wanting to, but haven't had time.

I need a plugin with similar functionality to WP Customer Reviews.  Nothing elaborate.  Just the ability for customers to leave reviews with star ratings. Must use Schema.  WP Customer Review has not been updated in a long time and I need something for a new project that I can trust will be maintained.  Perfectly willing to pay for a plugin.  Any advice is appreciated.

PODCAST: Website Redesigns & 301 Redirects. Don’t lose your traffic!

Last year I spoke to 11 companies who had lost most of their search engine traffic due to website redesigns and so far this year I've heard from two businesses, one of which lost over 90% off their traffic.

Most of these companies were moving from old static sites to Wordpress.

The one thing in common was that 301 redirects were not set up before the website went live.

This quick five minute podcast explains what 301 redirects are and why you should use them.

Its really easy to set these up using Wordpress and there's a bunch of free plugins available, just search for 301 redirects.

Edited the post to point to my website instead of Audioboom - shame they lock content behind a login - will have to look at SoundCloud.

Questions  - 
 
Question for the group. I would like to add a section to the top of my template for emergency announcements. I would like for the text of the announcement to be pulled from a specific page that can be easily edited by some of my contributors the the site. I have created a <div> in the template for where the announcement will go however I have no clue how to code this. Any suggestions or can someone point me to example code on the web?

Is the easily accomplished by displaying a post with a specific tag? All of the site pages are static pages.

This has been one of our most popular posts regarding WordPress. Thought I'd share it here, in case anyone is looking to get away from a Multisite. Have any of you been through this process?
Our company website at FiddlerStudios.com has been a WordPress Multisite for some time. I recently decided it wasn't really serving any good purpose to have it
