    thank you for this plugin, it will be great if implement session feature due to avoid vote more one answer.

    What I really like about this plugin is that there is no box. You can use it – and still see the background of your site. That is really good!
    But not everything is. One must, after having voted just refresh the page (you do not even need to delete cookies) then one can no longer see the result. And you can also vote again. That’s a shame.

    I try creating a poll, added a question and three answers. Then I added the start date 2012-05-19 and the end date 2012-05-25, then clicked the insert message button. I got the error message “No data available! use below form to create!” and no poll was created. On the website it says “No pool available”. What am I doing wrong. The widget is installed and activated, and it was inserted into my sidebar. I am using WordPress 3.3.2.

    TIA

    Great plugin! Would be great if you can give the chance to modify the input class…that submit button looks ugly in my page and I would like to adapt it to my stile. Now in the widget options is not possible…

    The options I entered in the settings form don’t remain. Thus I only see a question and no answers. The submit button is visible.

    Hi,

    I am another one who is logged with the admin account and get this message:
    “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”
    It seems that login in with the admin account isnt a solution. Would thank you for a proper one.

    I believe you need to register your options properly or manage them separately. The problem seems to be when posting to the options page without a nonce or registered options groups.

    So the issue was that you had hard coded the url for the settings and questions pages into the plugin. When you moved it out of settings, this caused problems because the urls changed. I went ahead and updated your plugin and cleaned up the layout on the styling template page, the widget settings, and the widget layout itself. I also updated the widget javascript to use jquery, and added support for the ##PERCENTAGE## and ##TOTAL## macros on the results fields. The updated plugin is available here: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/203259/pool-one-wp-plugin.zip
    . I’ll also post this on your plugin page for reference.

    For version 4.2, please consider taking advantage of the Widget class, settings api, and jquery. Thanks for the great work. I enjoy the plugin, as will my users. On a side note, if you ever want to use progress bars in the results display, set the results template to something like this: ##ANSWER##

      Hi Rion Dooley,

      Again thanks for your time, support, response and reply…

    Hi,
    I downloaded and installed the plugin on WordPress 3.42 and I’m getting the same “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page” message. I have the latest version of the plugin which I downloaded directly from this site. I also downloaded it through WordPress and the same thing happens. How can I fix this?

    Thanks!
