After a lot of integration work, I was able to create a pretty nifty Ajax enabled wordpress poll for a Valentine’s Day contest we are running at Pink CakeBox. The poll allows the user to vote for their favorite wedding cake and submit their contact information. I used the following to make this happen:
WordPress Democracy Poll – a ajax enabled poll plugin for wordpress. I took this code base and manipulated it to support image based polls with a preview option and the ability to store the users contact information in phplist newsletter manager. Fortunately Andrew Sutherland took a class based approach to developing his plugin and managed to document his code very well.
WordPress PHPList Plugin – my plugin for integrating phplist into your blog. The users contact information is automatically stored in our PHPList database when they Vote for their favorite wedding cake.
