I am pleased to announce a new bbPress Polls plugin.
Your members can now add polls to their topics, or optionally you can allow *anyone* to add a poll to *any* topic, within a specified time period (hours) since the topic was started.
bb-Polls allows single answer or multiple answer polls.
No template edits of any kind.
There are no additional db tables added, it uses bbpress topicmeta only. Only one entry is created per poll, regardless of size or options (this allow very easy cleanup if desired for some reason).
This is a *very* early beta, however should be functional except for:
1. missing admin menu (coming soon – edit plugin directly)
2. missing administrative editing of existing polls.
3. missing some visual tweaks (plural case, etc.)
4. missing some more deluxe options (poll ending time, etc.)
5. missing multi-language support (coming soon)
If you can live with these limits and would like to help test and give me some useful, constructive feedback, please download:
(rename .txt to .php, install, activate, start a new test topic)
The beta is set so only moderators and above can create/see the polls. This will allow you to test without disturbing visitors.
Please note the visual styles may be WAY off for the default template or your own template. Unfortunately I am using a very customised template. You’ll probably have to edit the built in css which is kept clearly at the top. (the default styles will be fixed soon when I get a chance to do a trunk install this week)
Upcoming features include the ability to display all polls and the ability to display a poll anywhere within bbpress templates.
ps. I need to know if this works as in in the trunk version – I don’t see why it wouldn’t but you never know…
