Hello, I have set up a photo contest. Everything works good but there is only one way to get to the voting section to vote on the photo. For example if a user uses the search bar to locate a photo it does not allow them to vote when they click the photo from the search results. How can i fix this?

Voting is only allowed when viewing a category that has been set to use contests. Therefore it is correct there is only one way to vote

Hello Chuck, The catergory that the photo is in is set up as a contest.

Right which means you can only vote when viewing the category not the photo
Your saying you dont see the voting stuff when logged in and viewing the actual category using showgallery?

If the user uses the search bar to find a photo to vote on, once they find the photo they will not be able to vote. This makes it very difficult to find out nhow to vote and defeats the purpose of the search bar. How do you tell users if they want to vote on a photo do not use the rearch bar. Then once in a category how do they find the photo they want to vote on without haveing to go through every photo? And yes It is not allowing me to vote even when I click the catrgory where voting is enabled.

I am merely trying to explain to you how the contest system works. You can only vote for a photo when viewing the category not the actual photos

Chuck that is my point. Click the category "Soccer Photos" on the page. You cannot vote even thought the catrgory is set up to allow voting.
