We have a major, annual contest in progress and are freaking out from the pressure to get this fixed ... like a week ago!!! The problem: Unless we completely open the poll up to multiple votes, we are unable to set the timing. Upon the very 1st vote one gets the "Out of votes" message. We purchased the Pro version thinking this would help, but it hasn't. Biting our fingernails waiting for support to respond.
At the beginning the plugin worked fine but since some new updates the plugin ist displaying any votings.
The support isnt helping at all, just ignoring me. This is not how it its supposed to be...
Until today all my votings arent displaying.
Biggest load of SPAM I have ever downloaded. Installed and activated the app and key pages in the backend went blank/white - such as the 'installed plugins' page and others - basically any page that you could look at removing the plugin. So I had to log into an FTP client and change the name of the plugin folder to stop it working so that it would deactivate, so I could then delete the app. Went to delete the app and a clever bit of programming selected all the plugins on actioning this and asked me if I wanted to delete all. So again I went to the FTP client to remove the plugin folder. My advice, don't download!
UPDATE: Half the problem solved but good enough for now to restore 5 stars. THANK YOU!
I have one major issue that seems to crop up in the Polls. Every poll displays the Facebook Comments Plugin. I don't even have the FB Comments Plugin installed on my sight. But at the bottom of each poll, there's the Facebook Comments box.
How do I get rid of it?
My site is http://www.marriedheat.com if you want to take a look.
When this is resolved, 5 stars! Love the program but I need to get rid of the Facebook comments!
The plug-in error is probably a result of a conflict with another plug-in as I can see from the reviews that most people get it working. After I installed and activated this plug-in, my website no longer showed any content on either the front or the back-end (wp-admin pages). I had to go in through ftp and rename the folder to deactivate it, and I then uninstalled the plug-in.
Please take my review for what it is: One person's experience, and since it did not even work, I could not give it any other rating.
However, I also acknowledge the time that programmers put into developing these plugins, and as there are soooo many wordpress plugins I can see how conflicts like this can easily happen.
Generally, when I look for plugins, I look at the one-star ratings and base my decision on the developer's responses. If they engage, then they care. And were I to rate this plugin on that criteria, the developer of YOP would receive a much higher rating.
Should really consider simplicity! May be full of options but too much just to get a simple poll up! uninstalled!
The Best Poll WordPress Plagin
The plugin works like a charm and the support is perfect! The best choice for everyone polls.
The plugin only allows a one question poll unless you upgrade for $17.
Installation went fine but for example the widget is not coded to WordPress standards. Font sizes are quite different. Poll width is only 200 Pixels where as it should be auto to the parent container.
Thankfully it does remove its database entries on uninstall and there are quite a few of them for such a simple application.
Conceptually its not bad, however in practice of attempting use it the plugin is near useless. Perhaps it was written long before recent versions of WordPress.
The whole idea of WordPress is not to be constrained. If the plugin adhered to very simply standards (styling should always be nothing essentially or at least optional) it might be good, not $17 good but good.
It is also nagware constantly popping up a window with a modal box talking about the Pro Version. Funny that the Modal actually looks better than the plugin.
won't even add a new poll says no archive URL entered when it doesn't even have a field to add that!
ask for too many options to do something as simple as adding a new poll
