Pollin WordPress PluginBy Binny V A • Nov 19th, 2008 • Category: Blogging, Scripts, WordPress
Pollin wordpress plugin will let you add polls to your blog. It can be shown to your visitors who will be able to vote in the poll. You can add the poll in a post by including the html comment [POLLIN 1] in the post. Here 1 is the ID of the poll to be shown.
If you are new to this blog, this is the Plugin Week. I am going to release one wordpress plugin each day, every day for one week(ie. Monday to Friday). Each day you will get a new plugin by me. This is the third plugin in this series. The earlier ones were…
Note 1: Pollin is a beta plugin(as are most of the plugins released in the Plugin Week) – so watch out for bugs. And trust me, there will be a lot of them.
Note 2: I would recommend that you don’t install Pollin right now. It has not yet been accepted into the WordPress Plugin Repository. You can install it using the zip file I provide below – but then there will be some problems with auto updating of the plugin. Its better to wait until WordPress accepts the plugin before installing it. [UPDATE: WordPress have accepted it – feel free to install this plugin now.]
- Download the zipped file from the Pollin page in WordPress Plugin Repository.
- Extract and upload the contents of the folder to /wp-contents/plugins/ folder
- Go to the Plugin management page of WordPress admin section and enable the Pollin plugin
- Go to the Polls Management page(Tools > Manage Poll) to create or edit Polls.
See it in Action
If you have any suggestions or notice any problems with the plugin, post it in the Pollin forum.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next plugin – to be released tomorrow.
