Voting is a form of feedback. In almost all types of websites, the facility of a feedback option is very important. This is because you have made something. How will you know about its caliber?
Unless there is a proper system, through which people can express themselves, you can never be sure about pros and cons.
Following are the top user-polling plugins for WordPress. The best part is that all of these are free.
1. Democracy Poll
A very popular plugin among WordPress users – Democracy Poll gives you the option to integrate polling options, anywhere on your website.
The coolest thing about this plugin is that it facilitates the users to add their own options. The plugin is customizable and you can even edit the code yourself, towards your liking.
Users would be required to sign up. They can add their answers and vote. Admin (of the website) can even see their answers. To access features and to change the layout of panel, admin can utilize the control panel, which controls the backend development of the plugin.
2. Quiz and Survey Master
The plugin has been around for years but recently, it got much fame after it was rebranded with an update. Like the working of Google Docs, ‘Quiz and Survey Master’ pretty much does all your work. Easy options allow a user to create surveys with multiple answers. There are lots of sample quizzes and sample surveys available via plugin which can give you an idea of your design.
Quiz and Survey Master can change the layout, add options and even radio buttons – all possible through the control panel. It also reduces spam by facilitating CAPTCHA support to user.
In the end, you can email the results of your quizzes and store them in your database.
3. POWr Poll
POWr poll uses cloud servers to handle your polling data. Using POWr poll, your page size gets reduced and most of content is pulled from everyone.
These types of plugins are not for everyone, considering people want control over their data. But, other than that, they are highly beneficial because size of your database gets lowered.
Using the free version, you are limited to 100 submissions per month.
NOTE: Just like POWr poll, POWr survey plugin is available. Again, limited submissions and cloud server technology, which has its pros and cons.
4. Popup Surveys
This plugin takes feedback from users in the form of surveys. It is a freemium plugin. Luckily, you can utilize a free account but it has limited options.
To avail more options of design and accessibility, you can buy the plugin.
5. WP Polls
Arguably as the most used polling plugin for WordPress – It is easy to customize and its highly scalable meaning you can blend it into any WordPress theme.
It is also one of the most updated WordPress themes. With few clicks, you edit the CSS and make appropriate changings to the layout.
