Re: let’s build a poll plugin!
You mean the one by GamerZ S010?
I’ve watched him improve that over the past year or two, actually sent some bug fixes and improvements. Still doesn’t do quite everything I’ve seen in other advanced polls but he’s got the multi-vote option so that’s good.
It uses the metadata so it would be fairly easy to convert, the only problem is his creation and management menus are all meant for the admin interface so a new creation routing would have to be written for the regular user interface. Then there is the problem of the trigger and attachment. I guess it gets attached to the topic-info box.
Now if we could only get him to switch from simple machines forum to bbpress we’d have a shedload of new bbpress plugins within a month
