WP-Polls not working in WordPress – how to fix it

Posted on June 24, 2016

Recently I needed to install the WordPress Plugin WP-Polls onto a website to conduct a survey of the website’s visitors. It’s a great little plugin, and works very quickly and easily allowing website owners to create polls and have their visitors vote in the poll.

It’s also very topical considering the current EU referendum!

Anyhow, after installing this plugin I noticed it wasn’t actually working as expected. It outputted the question and the poll answers sure enough, but the ‘Vote’ button didn’t work when clicked on, and neither did the ‘show results’ link. It was as if the button was deactivated.

A quick search on Google revealed that this was a common problem, with a couple of possible causes and fixes. As I’m often frustrated at the way WordPress.org closes down its support forum threads before someone has (more…)

Notiflyer WordPress Plugin

Posted on March 21, 2013

If you run a WordPress website which receives loads of social interaction and comments, wouldn’t it be great if you could use the interaction to send out messages promoting your latest offers, or by directing people towards your social channels?

With Notiflyer you can do just that. The plugin allows you add a custom message, such as an offer, details of an event or even links to other parts of your website, Facebook or Twitter, which are included in any comment notification emails which are sent out. So whenever someone receives an email from your WordPress site telling them of a new comment, they’ll also receive your custom message, or ‘flyer’.

== Description ==

Notiflyer allows custom messages to be sent out with the comment notification emails WordPress sends to the post authors. This allows you to add messages such as links to your Twitter and Facebook pages, or messages about offers and promotions. This is particularly useful for attracting people towards your social channels on multi author sites.

== Installation ==

1. Upload `notiflyer` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

Dynauthor WordPress Plugin

Posted on February 6, 2013

The Dynauthor WordPress plugin (Dynamic Author, but for dinosaur fans) amends the standard WordPress author list on the add/edit posts page to allow dynamic filtering of the authors using JQuery.

Why would you want to do this you may ask? The plugin was created for websites which rely a lot on user submitted content, and have a large number of authors. When the website admins and editors add the content, and need to change the author to the relevant user, a lengthy list can be difficult to navigate. The Dynauthor plugin turns the usual dropdown list of authors into a dynamic search box, which displays the authors in real time as you type.

We have tested this plugin on a website with thousands of authors, and it saves a lot of time when adding posts and looking for the correct author.

== Description ==

The Dynauthor plugin replaces the standard dropdown list selection method for authors with a search box, as the user begins the type a list appears of the authors matching that criteria. The list will update with each new character typed.

This is designed for sites with a large selection of authors.

== Installation ==

1. Upload `dynauthor` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
1. Ensure you have Author checked in the ‘Screen Options’ panel of your post page.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= How do I select the author when I can see it in the list?

Simply click the author, it will become bold and will fill in the field with that value, then make sure you publish/update your post.

= Do I have to start with the first letters of the authors name? =

No, the plugin will search any part of the authors name, for instance, to find ‘steven’, you could start to type ‘even’ and it will appear in the list of potential matches
