List and Grid View

List view will display by default.

list-view

If you do not specify a view, the contest will display the list view and grid view icons in the top right corner of the contest so that the user can switch between views.

 

grid-list

 

If you would like to use grid view as your default view add view=grid to your short code like this:

showcontestants id=42 showtimer=1 showform=1 view=grid

You can hide the grid/list view selector by going to WordPress Dashboard > Contest > Contest Category > Edit Contest Category > Hide Grid/List setting.
