Poll Directory

Description

The Poll Directory is filled with hundreds of pre-made user polls. Each are assigned to specific popular topics and categories. Choose a topic from the list and then the Poll Directory does the rest. It’s a great sidebar addition to provide fresh content for website or blog.

The plugin includes a sidebar widget so that you can place the polling app easily into your sidebar and wordpress theme.

After users submit an answer a response graph will show allowing users to see how the public has responded.

All polls and data is maintained by Dimbal Software via the Holy Poll website at http://www.holypoll.com – you don’t have to worry about a thing. Just choose your category and the plugin does the rest.

Initial Launch supports 5 primary categories: Music, Movies, Television, Technology and Food. Many other polls and categories will be online soon.
