Polar’s polling service (polarb.com) is cute, simple and easy to integrate into WP, and I’m definitely using it! That said, I’m deleting the plugin. I can embed my polls just as easily with iframe code and they look better – polls embedded with the plugin don’t integrate my custom styling from my Polar account. If they decide to update the plugin, I’d love to see custom styles for each poll and the ability to add text to polls.
Doesn’t work, wasn’t able to fetch most images I tried adding, finally managed to add the image, but constantly failed to create the multi poll..
