    Hi there, is it possible to add a poll on my post or widget so that my readers are able to vote ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately any poll that you’re gonna find on the internet will need 1 or more of the following:

    1. MySQL
    2. A Configurable text file
    3. Javascript
    4. Flash/shockwave.

    None of which are available here. Sorry!

    Moved to ideas…

    Actually there are poll plugins and widgets available for the normal WordPress. I do hope that these will be included some day in the future. :)

    I would suggest sending in a feedback from your Dashboard as matt and crew have mentioned in passing that this is how they keep track of suggestions.

    I added a poll on my site a couple of weeks ago and it was working fine but then I lost all the votes for some reason and it started at 0 again. So I took it down and have been trying to find another good poll. But the others are all javascript. I forgot the name of the one I use to have. I can try to find out for you.

    I think this is it, on the right:

    But my last poll that I took down had over 200 votes but then went back and started at 0. Maybe it can’t handle that many votes. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll do a poll a week instead.

    I’ve got a couple of polls on my blog. Check the link – I don’t remember where I got it from.

    Question for you: who is hosting your forum? The chat?

    #16085

    the forum is hosted by http://invisionfree.com/ and the chat by http://www.sigmachat.com

    there need to be more plugin OPTIONS. Hide them from normal users until oh say the blog has been live AND active for more than two months.

    This is a support forum but I sense your not really looking for support as much as you are for a place to exchange ideas, make requests, and to chat. Perhaps you might consider going off the forum for an hour or two and devoting your time to a couple of important tasks like (1) blogging (2) composing a succint summary of your request/advice/demands/ideas, etc. and then sending directly through feedback, rather than on the forum. Just a suggestion – hope it helps.

    I personally don’t recommend inivisionfree.com as they’re using a very out of date version of Invision. (When it was offered as free. Now you have to buy it.) It’s up to you though.

    Another one you can use is Proboards.

    bettersearch – you look like one of two things:

    – a forum spammer
    or
    – someone out just to criticise negatively.
