PollDaddy!

When you login to write a new post, you’ll notice a new icon above the text editor next to the “Add media” section: an orange lollipop.

When you login to write a new post, you’ll notice a new icon above the text editor next to the “Add media” section: an orange lollipop.

Click that icon, and you’ll be greeted with a new polling feature — the result of our integration with the newest member of the Automattic family, the PollDaddy service. Here’s an example poll:

Now whenever you do a post you’ll be a few clicks away from having your own poll, and you can have as many as you like! We’re also going to be working on a lot more styles and customization of the polls, so you’ll be able to match it exactly to the look and feel of your blog.

Most of the Automattic team is in Breckenridge, Colorado, right now for our twice-yearly get together (including PollDaddy and Intense Debate folks!). Over the next week or two you should see some cool projects we’re working on start to come out. In the meantime, here’s a picture of us dealing with altitude sickness:

Handsome group, eh? These are the folks who work every day and night to make your blogging experience absolutely tip-top. I couldn’t imagine working with better people, and I’m thankful every day.

    I hope the bright orange button is only a temporary placeholder; it sticks out like a sore thumb (or maybe a Halloween pumpkin?) next to the little grey icons. I will cross my fingers and hope that by the time the new admin interface arrives you will have had time to design a proper one.

    And oh, did I say that I had been dying for a polls widget or something ever since I abandoned my first blog platform for WordPress. I’ve come to the conclusion that, with you guys, all I need do is think it and it’s done. Enough said.

    I would have to say that this is a good feature, the only problem I see with it would be that it isn’t available for a widget. I want this poll to continue for a little bit past the post that I post and would want to keep it in the side bar for a while.
    Can you guys do that?
    I would loveee ittt!
