YOP Poll

Use a full option polling functionality to get the answers you need. YOP Poll is the perfect, easy to use poll plugin for your WP site.

This plugin was especially designed for flexibility and it is very easy to use. We don't expect you to encounter serious issues, but we included a list with some logical questions that you may find useful.

How can I create a poll?

Go to your YOP Poll menu and select the "Add New" option.
Fill the required information according to the examples we included: name, question, answers (add additional ones if you need), select the start/end date for your poll, and decide on the advanced settings for results, votes, voters, accessibility etc.
Once you decided on all your poll details, click on "Save".
To view your new poll access "All Polls" from your main menu and choose the corresponding entry from the list.

How can I link a poll to my webpage?

Find out the ID assigned to poll by accessing "All Polls".
Locate your poll and notice the ID on the left, before the name section.
Copy the following shortcode and paste it in your page: [yop_poll id="ID"]
For instance, if the poll you want to display has the ID=15 the code will be: [yop_poll id="15"].
This is it. Check your page or post now.

Do you have some predefined shortcodes that I can use?

Yes.
Current Active Poll ID = -1: [yop_poll id="-1"]
Latest Poll id = -2: [yop_poll id="-2"]
Random Poll id = -3: [yop_poll id="-3"]

Can I have more than one poll active?

Yes, you can run multiple polls at the same time or you can schedule them to begin one after another using the "Select start/end date" option.

Can I ask for additional information from my voters?

Yes, you can customize your poll to request additional information. Eg. name, email, age, profession. To include this, when you create your poll using the "Add New" form, go to "Custom Text Fields" -> "Add new custom field" and include as many requests as you need.

How can I create/modify a template?

Access the "Templates" menu.
If you want to create a new template use the "Add new" option and include the corresponding HTML/visual code.
If you want to modify an existing template, select it from the Templates list and choose "Edit". You will access the HTML/visual code you want to edit.

Below the name of the poll you have several options.
