    Anyone got a modified version of this they care to share ?

    Everything seems to function until i try and submit an answer to the default poll, then it tries to update to -

    wp_1_pollsip
    wp_1_pollsa

    Even though the poll is on wp_2.

    Is there a solution for this or a better poll system ? I liked the widget addition.

    Working fine for me. Currentl version is v 2.14. May want to try upgrading if you haven't done so yet.

    I use the democracy poll plugin which seems to work just fine (apart from a couple of mini things that need ironing out).

    What I really want is a quiz module... any ideas?

    Cheers, James

    any ideas?

    Will that be on the test? ;)

    Is there even one for regular wordpress? It's never come up actually...

    James,

    How does the democracy poll plugin work on a large install. Does it add some tables to each user that uses the plugin or is there one general table for all of them?

    Oooo... they look interesting.

    Short answer re: democracy... it sucks :(

    When activated as a plugin it spends *forever* setting up all sorts of tables and doesn't even achieve this with slightly larger sites.

    Also, it's kinda complex... the simpler the better I reckon.

    What those quiz plugins need are widgets & ways of simply embedding them in posts. [like this]

    One of these days... :)

    I have just started digging into MU however the problem with WP-Polls appears to be that when a vote is saved it stores the user as a guest with a user id of 0 so if Guest Voting is not enabled it will not store the information.
