Slate Theme - Looking for documentation on how to use contest and contest entry page types

Permalink
Not quite sure how to use the contest and contest entry page types.
Is there a example showing how these work?
Regards,

The contest is an add on separate from the slate theme. The screencast by Franz on how to use is herehttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/contest/screencast/...

The add on is called Voting Contest and can be found herehttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/contest/...

Installed Contest page which does nothing.
Installed Contest Entry Page and get this error:

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '/home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/concrete/elements/contest_entry_display.php' for inclusion (include_path='/home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/libraries/3rdparty:/home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/concrete/libraries/3rdparty:.:/usr/lib64/php:/usr/lib/php:/usr/share/pear') in /home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/concrete/core/libraries/loader.php on line 80
Contest Form not found.

I see this is unsupported block.
Any thoughts ?

First thing to check is that you have the add-on Voting Contest installed. There's a chance the add-on was installed and then uninstalled leaving only the page type entries in the dashboard with no actual use.

The page_types for the Voting Contest addon should be in

/packages/contest/page_types/contest.php
/pacakges/contest/page_types/contest_entry.php

Be aware that they are also using page_type controllers which are located in

/packages/contest/controllers/page_types/contest.php
/packages/contest/controllers/page_types/contest_entry.php

So without the package installed you wont get anywhere.

The package although it says unsupported still kind of is and the questions and answers section herehttp://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/contest/questions-and-d... is where I copied and pasted from one of mkly's answers.

Bottom left has the download source link if you dont want to install it through community connect and project pages.

You can also use the search bar and type in Voting Contest or go to, marketplace -> add ons -> and then search for Voting Contest there.

Thanks.
I reinstalled the block and all is working except this error message is showing above the photo uploaded:

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '/home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/concrete/elements/contest_entry_display.php' for inclusion (include_path='/home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/libraries/3rdparty:/home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/concrete/libraries/3rdparty:.:/usr/lib64/php:/usr/lib/php:/usr/share/pear') in /home1/ughlycom/public_html/thendara/concrete/core/libraries/loader.php on line 80

Thanks for all your help.
I will google this and try to figure it out.
Thanks again for your patience and time.
