Democracy Poll

WordPress Polls plugin. Visitors can choose multiple and adds their own answers. Works with cache plugins like WP Super Cache. Has widget and shortcod

The plugin adds a clever and convenient system to create various Polls with different features, such as:

  • Single and Multiple voting. Сustomizable.
  • Visitors can add new answers. Сustomizable.
  • Ability to set poll's end date.
  • Unregistered users can't vote. Сustomizable.
  • Different design of a poll.
  • And so on. See changelog.

Democracy Poll works with all cache plugins like: WP Total Cache, WP Super Cache, WordFence, Quick Cache etc.

I focus on easy-admin features and fast performance. So we have:

  • Quick Edit button for Admin, right above a poll
  • Plugin menu in toolbar
  • Inline css & js incuding
  • Css & js connection only where it's needed
  • and so on. See changelog

More Info

Democracy Poll is a reborn of once-has-been-famous plugin with the same name. Even if it hasn't been updated since far-far away 2006, it still has the great idea of adding users' own answers. So here's a completely new code. I have left only the idea and great name of the original DP by Andrew Sutherland.

What can it perform?

  • adding new polls;
  • works with cache plugins: wp total cache, wp super cache, etc...
  • users may add their own answers (Democracy), the option may be disabled if necessary;
  • multi-voting: users may multiple answers instead of a single one (may be disabled on demand);
  • closing the poll after the date specified beforehand;
  • showing a random poll when some are available;
  • closing polls for still unregistered users;
  • a comfortable editing of a selected poll: 'Edit' key for administrators;
  • votes amount editing;
  • a user can change his opinion when re-vote option is enabled;
  • remember users by their IP, cookies, WP profiles (for authorized users). The vote history may be cleaned up;
  • inserting new polls to any posts: the [demоcracy] (shortcode). A key in visual editor is available for this function;
  • a widget (may be disabled);
  • convenient polls editing: the plugin's Panel is carried out to the WordPress toolbar; (may be disabled);
  • .css or .js files may be disabled or embedded to HTML code;
  • showing a note under the poll: a short text with any notes to the poll or anything around it;
  • changing the poll design (css themes);
  • primary interface is Russian, but Enlglish interface is also available.
