WordPress Easy Polling Plugin

Welcome to the WordPress Easy Polling Plugin. The plugin brings a new and easy way for you to engage your website visitors and gather opinions.

The plugin lets you ask questions for your visitors to vote on. You can display the polls as boxes or bar charts. Like the ones below.

The bar charts are animated upon click giving your users a visual aid to the popularity of the options that have been presented. Movement and colours are attractive to the eye.

The box charts show “vote” on hover and display the votes after they’ve been clicked on.

Now, something that you’re all no doubt thinking by now…..

Vote Security – we got it!

Yeah, that’s right. Just like in Dilemma! we have built into the Easy Polling Plugin vote security. This is achieved by only allowing one vote per IP address (optional).

The plugin allows you to add as many options as you’d like for each poll that you create. You can also style these in any way that you’d like – just pick your favourite colours on the Add New Poll page. If you don’t have enough options, just add a new one by pressing the button.

Options are handled by Farbtastic colour picker

The plugin is really easy to use and fully feature packed.
