    Nice plugin … but, does not work on my website because the wp-admin folder is protected – which I am not willing to change. This additional layer of security is a best practice before the WordPress Login webpage is displayed. Looks like file(s) in wp-admin are accessed to record (update) after choosing an answer and then the Vote button. The wp-admin directory login prompt then appears. If I enter my secret admin id and password, the vote is recorded, otherwise just “spinning” bubbles. Too bad, hoped it would work. Advise to keep the wp-admin directory alone for security purposes. Maybe have some way to configure where the record are stored on the website. Thanks,

    Hello

    When someone votes, a request is sent to admin-ajax.php that is located under wp-admin directory.

    Per wordpress docs, here’s what they say …

    All WordPress AJAX requests must be sent to wp-admin/admin-ajax.php ( https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/javascript/ajax/)

    However, with more and more users blocking access to this file, we have come up with a different approach that we are going to launch soon.

    If you would like to give it a try before it’s launched, please contact us on our website.
