    Anybody familiar with WP-Polls plugin?

    I just added a poll to Search Feature. It worked fine before until the 19th voter but then for some reason, I receive complaints that they can't vote or see the result.

    Does anybody here know how to fix it?

    The poll is here
    Sep 2009 Poll | SearchFeature.com

    I'm using

    1. WordPress Version 2.8.4
    2. Theme Name CyberXpress by Web Hosting Fan
    3. WP-Poll version 2.50

    I have it running on My Brute Game, but haven't had a poll reach that many voters yet. I'm not sure if it's a known issue, but it's a very popular plugin and I'd think it would be fixed soon. Make sure you update when the request shows up in your wp-admin backend

    Never mind. It was a conflict with the WP 2.8.4 version. I just added this code

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    into the footer.php file and it works now.

    Please help me verify that it is actually working, and it's not just me...

    Thank you!

    You guys know that Polldaddy is owned by the makers of WordPress right? Just get a polldaddy plugin, and use their polling system.

    This is the catch of this plugin. Thousands have dumped this plug-in just due to this problem. I too could,'t make a single vote when i fist installed the plugin, adding that bit of code in the footer seemed to solve my problem too.

    You can place it anywhere in the footer.
    I've placed it just before the </body> tag. Here it is :
    Code:
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    </body>
    And, i think the poll can be just once on a page. You can't have it in a post and also in the sidebar. I think i had read this in Lester's(coder/creater of this plugin) Forum itself, not too sure though.
