Improved Polls and Ratings
We have made a couple of updates to the polls and ratings feature on WordPress.com that you may have already noticed.
Ratings on front page
There is now an option in the ratings settings to allow you to display your posts ratings on the front page.
Usage is very simple – pick whether you want the rating above or below the post, and save.
Your ratings will now appear on your blogs front page… nice!
Poll Options Menu
You may have noticed a new menu option under the polls menu – Options.
Here you can import another PollDaddy account if you wish to access another account from your WordPress dashboard.
Using the default poll settings, you can set your typical poll settings, like a custom style. Then with each new poll created, these default settings are loaded automatically, saving you time and hassle.
Expiration limit on block repeat voting
There is an additional setting in the poll editor that allows you to set a limit on how long to block repeat voters.
Just choose one of the block options, select how long you wish to block repeat voting and save your poll.
We have also made a few minor updates like adding support for right-to-left (RTL) languages, and tightening permissions. The WordPress.org plugin has also been updated with these changes and with a few additional ones detailed on the PollDaddy blog.
You can find out more details on the support page.
