Dilemma! version 2.0 is here!

Well all you Dilemma! customers. You’ll be pleased to know that a new version v2.0 of Dilemma! has been submitted to CodeCanyon for review. What’s new in this update I hear you shout?

There were numerous feature requests since v1.1 has come out and I have tried to capture the majority of these in this update.

Cool new front end widget to show site wide statistics and help earn you some money!

The widget in the sidebar can be setup to help earn you money. By displaying this widget it shows you a cool running total of votes and dilemmas as well as optionally puts an affiliate link on the Dilemma logo. Anyone who clicks this link and signs up and buys from CodeCanyon, you get 30% affiliate income.. money for (almost) nothing. You can check out the widget over there in the sidebar.

That’s pretty epic isn’t it? It shows you just how engaging your Dilemmas have been to your website audience AND helps you earn a few bucks as well.

Improved admin side

The plugin is now much easier to use for people who are new to it. The admin homepage has had a 2013 facelift and now each Dilemma is viewable from it’s “view post” link. A screenshot of the new sparkly 2013 admin homepage is below:

Awesome

Cool new logo

Dilemmas now have their own pages with comments

Awesome this means they all show up under a big list of site wide dilemmas at this URL. It also means each individual Dilemma can get shared on facebook and other social media.

Visitors can browse through all the Dilemmas in your site in one go. More time online, more engagement. Wicked! If you allow your own visitors to pose their own Dilemmas, they can now add a title to them and submit them to your site pending admin approval (easy to change to auto publish).

But, I wanted more than 2 options

Dilemma is and always will be a 2 option pony. Tigers or Lions, Goose or Gander.. It’s what makes it so simple and effective. If you want more options to vote on then there’s the recently released super powerful Social Polling Plugin available on CodeCanyon which is awesome, it really is!.

Aww where’s the photo voting element

Sorry guys and gals, this didn’t make the cut either. For a top notch photo rating plugin, there’s the very popular Pics Mash for a photo rating systems.
