The release of NorrCompetition 1.7.2

The release of NorrCompetition 1.7.2

We are pleased to announce the release of NorrCompetition 1.7.2. This is a maintenance release that includes two improvements and few bug fixes.

Improvements

  • Display share button in entries list. Share button is displayed near the vote button and visitors will be able to share entry directly from the list, not going to entry page. By default the button is set to "Hide" and you can set it to "Show" globally in component options under "Entries" tab or for specific contest in "Layout Options" tab.
  • Contest vote frequency. Earlier you were able to set vote frequency for entry only, but now it is possible also for contest. The example user case is to set only one vote per day for all contest globally. This allows to cast exactly one vote from visitor per day for any entry. You will find this improvement options just before vote frequency options for entry.

Bug fixes

  • Entries count displays wrong number of entries
  • Fields order sorting in contest settings
  • Regression: AJAX calls does not work if site is running under subfolder
  • Display of sorting filter when only one option is selected
