Photo contest module in XS version 26

We have developed a new module that can be used to turn Infradox XS websites into photo contest websites. This module was developed in collaboration with De Zilveren Camera.

If you are interested in hosting a photo contest website, feel free to send us an e-mail. We charge a one-off fee for the system and a per annum fee for managed hosting, updates, bandwidth, server use and support. You can create an unlimited number of contests and contest categories for both series and single entries. You can assign jurymen/jurywomen to your categories and each contest can have have or more chairmen/chairwomen. The contest module can be configured with several parameters. You can review submissions before allowing uploaded files to enter the contest if you wish.

Want to participate in the Zilveren Camera Contest 2014? www.zilverencamerawedstrijd.com.

Infradox XS version 23

We have just released XS version 23, with several new functions and improvements.

High lights:

Infradox XS Satellite. Photo libraries can now offer their photographers a low cost website of their own. Satellite websites plug into the parent library website for content (photos et cetera) but a dedicated database is used for users, galleries, lightboxes and so on. Satellite websites offer all the functions that other XS sites offer with the exception of an order/file delivery system. If a visitor wants to buy a file, he or she is taken to the parent website.

Submission queue We now offer a built-in submission system that you can use to review and discuss files that your suppliers upload, before actually letting those files enter the database and client facing website.

Supplier editing The supplier editing module has been updated with a batch editing function.

User messages You can now post messages to your users with a number of options.

Granular administrator permissions When logged in with the super administrator account, you can now grant specific permissions on each administrator account. XS websites can have one super administrator account and the number of additional admins is determined by the version that you have (Satellite, XSP, Photographer, Agency or Enterprise).

Version 23 offers many more changes. You can find the release notes here on xpertise.zendesk.com.
