I must thank you immensely for this fantastic plugin. I love how clean, neat, and customizable it is. You just thought about everything and added it to the plugin. You are really a talented developer man. I have just made a small donation (coming from iceq - hotmail . co . uk) as a token of gratitude for your great work.
These are questions and suggestions that will make the plugin the perfectest plugin, I hope you can tell me how to implement them or that you are willing to add them soon :)
0- Confirmation message: I noticed that if "Confirmation" is activated, the message the is displayed by default (thank you, your signature has been added, or something like that) is the same message that appears when confirmation isn't active, which doesn't make sense because the signer has to know that he has to click the confirmation link.
We can customize that text, I know, but then if for another petition I do not want confirmation, I'll have to change the text again. So best is to have to configurations, one for when confirmation is active, another when it is not.
0-B, confirmation position: When the visitor submits the signature, the confirmation message (inside the greet triangle) appears on top of the petition form, which might not be noticed in a small-width form. Why not appear right there next to or in place of the "Sign Now" button?
1- Separate Signatures list: How can I have the signatures list be displayed separately in a new window when a certain link is clicked? I don't want the list to appear by default to speed up page load, but want to allow users to see it if they want. I noticed there's a "[Signatures]" under the signature text in that popup window, but not sure that that represents or means, as after adding signatures, it just remains like that.
2- Hidden custom field: How can I set a specific custom field to be hidden after being submitted? I mean, I want the signers to see the field, but when they submit, only their names, city, etc, appear in the sigs list, while that custom field (like, their ID number) is not printed in the list, for privacy reasons, but which would be necessary for the petition?
That's a very important feature, in my opinion.
3- Signatures list link: Is there a way to "link" the WordPress post which the petition is inserted into, with the signatures number?
My WP theme displays the posts in the category called "petitions". When the category is displayed, the last petitions titles appear, and with them the excerpt of the petition that I manually added to the post settings. When the visitor clicks the post's title, he goes to the full post page where he sees the petition form.
What I want to do is to have the number of sigs of the petition inside each post, to be printed somewhere under the excerpt, in the categories (or archives, or the index) page.
I hope I made it clear.
4- The petition text: Is there a way to embed the petition text inside the petition and not as a pop-up? You know that this is important for SEO reasons. I know what I can do is paste the text to the WP post's normal editor, and leave the petition's text area empty, but that will show the text outside of the petition's nice frame.
I hope that can be done.
5- Secret question: I hope there's a way to set a anti-robot custom question that the signer has to provide the correct answer for, before his signature is accepted. This is important because it allows us to disable confirmation. People hate that they have to confirm via email, and if there was a secret question, it will be perfect !!
6- Can the signature goal (like:"10 signatures out of required 100"), and expiry date be displayed after the signatures progress bar ?
7- Return URL: how can I set the return url to automatically be the url of the post/page where the petition is hosted?
