making bbPress (and WordPress) work better!

bbPress Polls plugin

I am pleased to announce a new bbPress Polls plugin (in beta testing).

Your members can now add polls to their topics, or optionally you can allow any member to add a poll to any topic (even not their own), within a specified time period (hours) since the topic was started.

bb-Polls allows single answer selection or multiple answer selection polls.

No template or core edits needed 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).

his is a beta test, 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 more deluxe options (poll ending time, etc.)

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)

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.

  2. Unfortunately I have not yet added any way either for the user or admin to delete polls. I really need to make an admin page that will list all active polls so the admin can lock/delete/modify them.

    However if you can use phpmyadmin, you can search for the topic metadata with the poll and delete that, which will make it disappear.
