Recently I’ve been working on a number of eBook products and I’ve wanted to use some sort of polling to understand pricing.  Now I could just send a simple email about this to folks and ask them but that’s a little intrusive and besides I want to poll the average guy or girl coming to the site so that I can get feedback.  This started me on a search for a polling plugin and eventually lead me to Yop Poll a terrific little plugin for people to design, implement and review polling feedback from people.

Its deadly easy to install really but where you can mess around is really in the configuration of the tool which allows for everything from CAPTCHA to blocking users with cookies and IP restrictions and much much more.  It was designed for use on WordPress and its a free plugin however if you really like it then you can donate to the creators.  Let’s have a look at how you can setup a poll and add it to a post on your WordPress site now.

Once you’ve installed the plugin you’ll need to look for the Yop Poll icon in the left side navigation on the back-end of your WordPress site so go and do that first.  Once you’ve found it, click on it and you’ll be taken to a screen like this…
