WordPress FAQ: Democracy Poll Feature

Tell your friends!

Why doesn’t the democracy feature allow for polls asking for voters to “check all that apply?”

Democracy is a great little plugin that allows for polls on WordPress blogs. I have a lot of history with the Democracy plugin, but fortunately the plugin has come a loooong way and improved quite a bit.

I asked the developer of the plugin this question and this was his response (for what it’s worth):

Hmm, I haven’t decided. I haven’t had a ton of people asking for that feature, it’s been requested over the years but not enough to be worth it to everyone. Democracy isn’t being actively developed, but I think it’s generally feature-complete enough. Of course, it’s not perfect…If a lot of people get in touch with me to request that feature, I might reconsider.

There’s your call to action. If you want it, make yourself known. True Democracy, eh? :-)

    Not really a WordPress solution, right Armen?

    Sorry Aaron, I know. Just mentioning an alternative that some people might find more ‘simple’.

    By the way, what you’re doing here is great.

    Have you looked into wp-poll?

    http://lesterchan.net/wordpress/screenshots/browse/wp-polls/
    http://lesterchan.net/wordpress/ (working example in sidebar about 1/2 way down page)

    I’m in the process of setting up my first wp site, and in my research into polling widgets I found wp-poll and democracy to both be highly recommended.. wp-poll does support the multi-answer polls though!
