KingSumo Giveaways 1.5.3 Released

We have released an update for the KingSumo Giveaways WordPress plugin. We recommend all users install the update to avoid incompatibilities and benefit from conversion tracking updates.


  • Update for users seeing ‘0 entries’ on share page. Now users will see “Your number of contest entries will display once you have confirmed your email address. Please check your inbox to confirm now.” when “only confirmed entries are eligible to win” is selected by contest owner.
  • Ensured max 25 lists are pulling from mail chimp (vs. 10 lists).
  • Fix Conversion Tracking: Now only outputs the contents of the “conversion script” immediately after an entry as opposed to on every visit.
  • Update to shortcode so embedded contest height can be specified For ex:
    [ giveaway id=3 height=800 ]
  • Fix bug for shortcode not working on sites not using permalinks.
  • Fix bug for shortcode when giveaway id is not specified.
  • Fix 500 error for some users when clicking “Services” tab or “Add New”.
