Polldaddy Polls & Ratings

Create and manage Polldaddy polls and ratings from within WordPress.

Where do I find my Polls & Ratings menus?

The Polls & Ratings menus can now be found under the Feedbacks top level menu.

I have multiple authors on my blog? What happens?

Each author that wants to create polls will need his or her own Polldaddy.com account.

But, as an Administrator, can I edit my Authors' polls

Yes. You'll be able to edit the polls they create from your blog. (You won't be able to edit any of their non-blog, personal polls they create through Polldaddy.com.)

Neat! Um... can my Authors edit MY blog polls?

Nope. The permissions are the same as for posts. So Editors and Administrators can edit anyone's polls for that blog. Authors can only edit their own.

Where are my ratings?

Check that footer.php in your theme calls the wp_footer action. The rating javascript is loaded on this action.

My ratings are gone after I reinstalled the plugin. How do I get them back?

Login to your Polldaddy.com account and view the ratings in your dashboard. You should see ratings named "blog name - " comments/posts/pages. You need the rating ID of each of those which is visible when you edit them. It's the number in the URL of your browser that looks like https://polldaddy.com/ratings/1234567/edit/. After you connect the plugin to your Polldaddy account go to Settings->Ratings and make sure the ratings are displayed on your posts/pages/comments as desired. You'll see a link at the bottom of the page saying, "Advanced Settings" that will toggle new configuration settings. One of those settings is "rating ID" which you should replace with the number you got from your Polldaddy account. Now save the changes and the ratings on your site will be updated.

I cannot access my ratings settings, I am getting a "Sorry! There was an error creating your rating widget. Please contact Polldaddy support to fix this." message.

You need to select the synchronize ratings account in the WordPress options page at Settings->Polls & Ratings to make sure the ratings API key is valid.

When I try to use a rating on a page, I get a PHP warning about the post title.

Your rating uses the filter 'wp_title' by default when retrieving the post title, you may need to remove this in the Polls & Ratings settings to allow ratings to work with your theme.

Why is a poll loading in the footer of my main page?

Your theme is getting the post content, without necessarily showing it. If the post has a poll, the poll javascript is loaded in the footer. To fix this, you need to enable the 'Load Shortcodes Inline' setting in the Polls & Ratings settings. This will load the poll shortcode inline and will only load the poll if the content of the post is actually displayed.
