Support » Plugins » [Plugin: WP-Polls] Compatibility with 2.9.*

  • Hello,

    According to the plugin page, it works or 15 people and doesn’t work for 11. Is there any official word on the plugin’s compatibility with WordPress 2.9.*?

    I plan to install this plugin on a very busy site and don’t want to take any chances 🙂

    Thanks in advance.

  • Why dont give it a try, it’s just to remove it if you encounter any problems?!

    It works fine for me, however it did not work together with the Google Map plugin.

    I regret the fact of upgrading to 2.9.1 really..
    the cons are that the plugin builder will not offer any more upgrades to the plugin.. which is real sad..

    I’ve installed it two days ago.. and I’ve been trying to make it work in 2.9.1 ever since. the loading cursor keeps spinning with no results..
    some people suggested fixing some code line in footer.php which I did, but didn’t help much.

    Check your permissions.

    Ensure ALL files in /wp-content/ are CHMOD to 644 and ALL folders to 755.

    And try to see if it works on the default theme.

    I’m using 2.9.2 and with a custom theme, the plugin does not work. I’ve switched to the default theme and the plugin works. I’m curious if anyone knows what is different? I’ve taken pieces like the default footer.php and replaced my custom themed footer.php – that isn’t it.

    Any advice? I’d really like to use this plugin.

    Hello GamerZ, i have your great plugin, and works good until WP last version.
    With 2.9.1 works fine (with header and footer codes)
    but with 2.9.2 is not working anymore.

    It’s do nothing when you cast a vote.
    I tryed to change themes, put another code, put same again, uninstalled from polls uninstall, and reinstalled, etc. and nothing happened. And my files are chmod 644 and my folders 755.

    Any Clue?
    my site is

    I got “Please choose a valid poll answer.” on WP2.9.2. Any idea? Please help!

    Upon voting, poll puts answer in another nested wp-poll wrapper in 2.9.2 and most recent plugin. I went back to 2.31.

    In Poll Templates in WP-Admin, restore all templates to default

    I had this same problem with WordPress 2.9.2 on a custom theme. The custom theme was missing the wp_head() and wp_footer functions. Once I placed those functions into the theme’s header.php and footer.php the wp-polls work Perfectly.

    I can confirm that adding <?php wp_footer(); ?> to the footer.php and <?php wp_header(); ?> to the header.php made it work for me in 2.9.2! Thanks DaveClapp

    Although it is directly not related to the version 2.9.2 of wordpress but in my case the plugin was not at all working previously (loading forever) still after adding <?php wp_footer(); ?> <?php wp_header(); ?> and changing folders permission to 755 and files to 644 as suggested by some.

    After testing the polls with the default theme, I found out that this must be some problem with my custom theme files only. By checking the function.php I saw that I had used a deregister styles code in my theme function similar to this below:

    add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'my_deregister_styles', 100 );
    function my_deregister_styles() {
    	wp_deregister_style( 'wp-polls' );
    	wp_deregister_style( 'thickbox' );

    So now when I removed wp_deregister_style( 'wp-polls' ); from that, the polls are working perfectly just as it was before. Hope this helps someone else.

    Oh sorry I had also removed the
    if ( !is_admin() ) wp_deregister_script('jquery');
    code from the same function.php which I forgot to mention in the previous comment.

    WP version: 2.9.2
    WP-polls version: 2.50
    Issue: impossible to click ‘Vote’ button under FireFox, clicking ‘Vote’ button causes JS error under IE7, IE8.
    Theme: custom

    I checked if it is working in the default WP theme – and it worked properly. Then I checked if I had <?php wp_footer(); ?> in the footer.php and <?php wp_header(); ?> in the header.php – I had them both in my custom theme. Then based on the suggestions from priyankanm I started looking for all ‘junk’ in my custom theme’s PHP files. After 2 hours of research I found, that if my custom Footer.php is replaced with the default Footer.php (from Default WP theme), the problem is solved and ‘Vote’ button worked.

    As I hadn’t more time for this, I just replaced my custom footer.php with the default one, and the only thing I modified in it was adding a one <div> block with footer image in it.

    Here is a list of things that I removed from the footer, maybe some of them caused the issue:

    <?php wp_get_archives('title_li=&type=postbypost&limit=5'); ?>
    <?php if (function_exists('mdv_recent_comments')) { mdv_recent_comments(5); } ?>
    <?php wp_cumulus_insert(); ?>

    Thanks to everyone.

    Great thread. Any tips for inserting a poll directly into a post? I only see instructions for poll pages and sidebars in the wp-polls documentation.

    WordPress 2.9.2, latest WP-Polls version. I’m trying to imbed a poll within a post using: [poll id=”n”] where according to the list of polls, n is the ID of the one I’m looking for. Plugin comes back with “there are no valid polls”, even though the poll is open. What am I not doing correctly?
