Support » Plugins » I need an EASY to use POLL, someone helpme

  • Resolved Marius-


    I just tried out Sodahead polls, which was CRAP. Needed to register at some site to use it.

    I tried out WP-Polls, which was also crap. When it asks me to put posts ID at every time I use it, edit themefiles and use special tags. It is basically = SHIT. And not a good plugin.

    I want a poll that is easy to install, like any other plugin, just dragging it into the folder. And easy to use. I want a button that says “Create poll” and “Add question” then “Add options”… NOTHING MORE.

  • me too, I wanna add poll plugin, but all the plugins are crapp…

    I KNOW right!!!
    So crap.

    Someone please make an easy poll. Just the basic easiest poll you can think of.

    I’m annoyed slightly that often, WordPress is supposed to be easy to use and install. Not needing much skills at all, perhaps a basic understanding of code, at color/size level, nothing more.

    And lots of plugins are really easy to install. But suddenly, some plugins are so fucking hard to install, that if you were that good at coding, you could have made it yourself. These demands you know php all the way and see all problems beforehand. That contradicts completely with what I consider to be WordPress philosophy. And If WordPress is gonna keep on striving for that goal of becoming universally userfriendly. Then you need to improve this.

    Can someone just ban Marius from the site? For over a year, it’s been nothing but complaining, foul language, and rudeness.

    Honestly, these are the types of people that make some of us stay away from the forums when we could be helping those in need.

    Welcome to the world of free spech. Or maybe not? If thats what “this” is?

    Only those who lack the intellect to properly express their point, regress to using foul language. Make your point without dropping a F-Bomb, and I think you find people a little more willing to help.

    BTW, the WP-polls plugin by Lester Chan is excellent.

    Already tried that and no, it SUCKS!

    That’s your opinion.

    If WordPress is too hard for you to use, why don’t give a Blogger or one of the other “novice” platforms a try.

    Cause now I’ve been halfway fooled into learning WordPress and started using it, having set up two blogs already.

    Can you give examples of what about these plugins suck?…

    Details? … too hard to use? .. looks bad? … hard to implement? …

    The alternative is to write your own if you don’t like what’s available, after all you’re not paying these people to write them for you… and if you were you’d proberly having something “made to spec” …

    I’m genuinely curious about the above points.

    And, lol…. fooled into using wordpress? … it’s your choice at the end of the day, if you don’t like it, then move along…. it’s only a choice when it comes down to it..

    If you don’t like WP Polls, try

    Welcome to the world of free spech. Or maybe not? If thats what “this” is?

    Free speech is not guaranteed to online environs, and is subject to limitations, such as “hate speech”. Freedom of speech means the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation. Not the freedom to be mean, or otherwise unkind. Freedom of speech does not mean you can walk into my house and insult me, and not expect repercussion. And finally, if you’re a US citizen, in the US the freedom is only assured if you are speaking in public property. It means that the government cannot censor what you say about the government. WordPress, not being owned by Da Man nor a board about the same, is not subject to that ruling, and can censor you, same as any other ‘net board out there.

    But Internet is a part of the real world. Ultimately laws from the real world should apply. And yes, I can speak however I want. I’m doing it right now – see?

    Yes WP-polls is too hard to implement.
    I uploaded it to plugins, then it asks me to enter Poll ID, which I have no clue about, then it tries to teach me about which numbers I should remember to use in each case. Then it asks me to put codes in several files, and it all becomes too much. I’m not skilled enough to understand it.

    Like I said, give me a poll, that’s CLEAN, and easy to use. Which means, 1.upload to plugins, 2.start to use. Nothing more.

    Repeat: Try

    You obviously have not read what I’ve said earlier. Cause I’ve said that I don’t want to register anywhere and use a thirdparty pollsystem.

    I want it to be my own. My own design, on my own server, on my own account, in my own code. Commercial-free, clean interface, simple to use.

    You may have said that in another topic, but in this one you never specified no third-party system.

    Your first post, in this topic, expresses how you dislike sodapop’s polls and WP-Polls. Your second post is a plea for easy polls, follow by rant about plugins. Your third post is an assumption about how freedom of speech works in relation to banning on forums. Fourth is reiteration about WP-Polls. Fifth is about how we fooled you into using WP at all. Six was your ideal that the net should be like the ‘real’ world, plus a WP-Polls is too hard.

    So. No, you did not mention not having to register anywhere or not use a third-party system IN THIS TOPIC.

    Summation: You have been given the top three choices, and you’ve now stated you don’t like any of them. Sorry, but that’s all there is. You can experiment with the other ones listed here but in my experience, the three you’ve shot down are the best. Right now, I use PollDaddy for the rather infrequent polls I make.

    Honestly, if this is how you treat all the kind volunteers who are attempting to help you out, I understand why so few of the helping hands are here. I’m out.

    I want it to be my own. My own design, on my own server, on my own account, in my own code. Commercial-free, clean interface, simple to use.

    But you don’t want to do any work to achieve this. Anything that doesn’t fall within your realm of what should be “easy” is crap. If you knew anything at all about DB design, you would see that a poll has to have a unique ID, i.e. poll-id in order to be stored in the database. If you would take a few seconds to read the documentation you could learn a whole lot.

    Again, if you don’t want to invest the time to do it correctly in WordPress, go find a platform that is more suited to your skill level. Otherwise, roll-up your sleeves and put in a little effort, you’ll be amazed what you get out of this board when you don’t act like a spoiled child.
