WP-Polls 2.20 Logs

Someone mentioned in the forums that since WP-Polls 2.20 allows users to vote for multiple answers, it make sense to revamp the whole logging part of WP-Polls and to allow administrator better understand his site’s voters preference.

I have since done so but it is still in a planning stages, comments and ideas are all welcomed. Here is a screenshot to get my point across.

I have removed the poll’s log from the Edit Poll and move it to its own page called log. There will be paging in the log page for sure.

There are 3 main ways you can filter the logs.

1. You can choose to display all the users that voted for a certain answers in a poll and you can choose what type voters you want to display.

2. View the answer voted by registered users or comment authors. It will not support guests.

3. You can choose to display the users who voted for more than 2 answers and what they voted for. This option is only available if the poll supports multiple answers.

Registered Users – It means the user is registered with your WordPress blog.
Comment Authors – Visitors who posted comments in your blog before and hence we are able to get his name/nickname via the cookies. 2 comment authors may share the same name, so it is not 100% accurate.
Guests – Self explanatory

WP-Polls 2.20 Updates

I have make the following additions/changes to WP-Polls 2.20:

NEW: Poll Archive Link Template
NEW: Poll Templates Has Now Its Own Page ‘WP-Admin -> Polls -> Poll Templates’
NEW: Poll Widget Can Now Display Multiple Polls
FIXED: Poll Archive Will Now Show Only Polls That Are Closed

I hope I can released WP-Polls 2.20 in mid May 2007.

I have left 1 more task to do which I have no idea how to design it; To improve the Edit Poll page where it shows a list of IP addresses of the users who voted for the poll. Imagine you got 4000+ people who voted for the poll like the sample poll you see on the right sidebar. It will be a nightmare when it comes to editing the poll (due to the time taken to render the page).

WP-PageNavi Updates

I have to go along with the web trend. My old WP-PageNavi style is outdated and I need to do something about it.

And hence, I modified the style to make it look like Digg (bottom of the page). You also can take a look at the bottom of this page to for an example.

This changes will be in WP-PageNavi 2.11. I have made it in such a way that every aspect of WP-PageNavi is customizable. The text that is displayed can be configured in WP-Admin -> Options -> PageNavi and the style can be configured via CSS in pagenavi-css.css

See the screenshots for more information, WP-PageNavi Screenshots.
