WP-Polls 2.61

I have released WP-Polls 2.61 which fixes a code injection via “HTTP Referrer” and affects users who are on WP-Polls 2.60 only.

I also took this chance to port the readme.html to the proper readme.txt which WordPress.org is using and now you can see all the details of WP-Polls right from the plugins page itself regardless if it is from your WP-Admin or WordPress.org.

All users should upgrade now

  1. I am looking for a way to use html code in my post to create a poll instead of the standard [poll id = "1"] so that my users can type parts of a question into the search bar to find it. However, when I use the code and users submit an answer, they can’t hit the back button because a comment pops up that says “you have already voted”, and they can not see the poll results anymore. Is there a way to fix this?

    Also, I followed the read me instructions exactly for fixing the jagged text issue in internet explorer, and it fixed everything except the most popular answer in the results (the bolded part). I deleted EVERY INSTANCE of the */ like it mentions. I was hoping the update would fix this but it hasn’t. Any ideas?

    Btw I love this plug in and it is very key to the function of my site. I greatly appreciate it.

  2. Hello Mr Chan,

    We installed your plugin on our blog but without success. It is not working. Plugin can not create poll because denied questions and answers.

    We use latest version of WP.

    Maybe we did not done something important?

  3. Sorry but I am unable to reproduce this problem. Try another fresh copy of WP 3.1 with WP-Polls. It might be a conflict with your theme or existing plugins.

  4. Unfortunatelly it is not working. We trayed again and again but without success.

    Always we have got:

    Error In Adding Poll ‘Najcesce kazete:’.

    Error In Adding Poll’s Answer ‘Da’.

    Error In Adding Poll’s Answer ‘Ne’.

    Error In Adding Poll’s Answer ‘Mozda’.

    Error In Adding Poll’s Answer ‘Cutim’.

  5. hi There,

    First of all thanks for WP-Polls plugin its really awesome.. I am facing some issues in WP-Polls .. the vote button and view results link not working in IE 8. Can you please sort it out.


  6. Hi
    I have successfully activated wp poll 2.61 but vote button does not work.
    Could you please help me out?

  7. How do I create an archive page? I see the link is created, but after voting I get a 404 error. Now, I only recently installed the plug-in so possibly it takes time. However, if I need to do something specific please let me know?

    URL for site with plug-in:


    Wonderful plug-in by the way πŸ™‚

  8. Nevermind. Using WP built in install I almost never look at the included files. My mistake in this case. Your documentation was very straight forward and easy to follow, once I dialed down my ignorance πŸ˜‰

    Again, terrific plug-in!

  9. The plugin itself works great, just having an issue with it off-setting my footer whenever I activate the widget in a sidebar….

    Do you have any thoughts on what might be causing this? You can see it at http://www.momazine.com. This is the first time I’ve had a widget cause that particular problem.

    Thank you!

  10. I love this plugin and have used it on a few different projects. On this latest though, I need a way to show the vote form and the results simultaneously. I figured the easiest would be two shortcodes, e.g., [poll id="2"] [poll id="2" type="results"] But then the results show up after the user votes.

    Is there any way to disable showing results after the form has been submitted?
