The truth is that this habit of consulting users seems great, and as on other occasions now the WordPress development team asks us what we think are the functionalities that we consider vital for WordPress 2.9. You can contribute your bit for the next version of WordPress here . The priority is in multimedia, as you can see.
In WLTC they have created an interesting survey, and I thought that it could be of interest also for the Hispanic community. Sure we learn a lot from the comments of the "whys" of each one when choosing a method of publication in WordPress.
In my case the main method " The writing panel of WordPress "Because after going through multiple desktop editors I found that the best thing is the WordPress panel itself, even when it is offline – using Gears – you can prepare your posts for later publication, and you have everything at hand. Additionally, the miniposts I publish from QuickPress and when I get the inspiration without my Mac to public hand from the iPhone, which is now quite drinkable, being able to copy and paste, insert URLs easily and adding images so simple.
In the survey you can choose several options (even all) to make the result more real …
how to use the WP-Polls poll plugin , but this plugin has a "defectillo", and that is that only allows to create and manage surveys to the administrator user of WordPress, a silly mistake.The "normal" users (authors and editors) of a WordPress can only insert surveys but what sense does it have if the surveys have to be created by the administrator and provide the ID of the same to the authors? it seems totally unproductive.
Fortunately everything has a solution in WordPress and I found three ways to skip this restriction :
1. Modify the code of the plugin
This is a simple solution
wp-polls.php of the plugin folder and replace this line …
$ role = get_role ( 'administrator' ) ;
for this another …
$ role = get_role ( 'author' ) ;
Only that does not always work, try and if it works perfect.
2. Modify in depth the code of the plugin
This other solution, proposed in the support forums of WP-Polls goes through a deep modification of some aspects of the plugin files, allowing to define more finely what each type of user can do
But bad news does not always work either.
3. Role Manager
I will not tire of recommend this plugin . And, in addition to its undeniable utility for a complete management of WordPress user profiles, it also integrates with other plugins that depend on these
roles . Of course, also with WP-Polls.
Activating the creation and administration of surveys to authors and editors is as easy as going to " Users -> Roles " and in the supersubscribed profiles click on the "Manage polls" box. From that moment, users with an Author and Editor profile can create, manage and, of course, insert WordPress surveys.
